Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to help improve the appearance, size and shape of your breasts.
Is a Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
Pregnancy, changes in body weight, and aging can affect the size and shape of your breasts. Breasts may also be underdeveloped, disproportionate to your body, or different sizes. All of these aesthetic concerns may be addressed with a breast augmentation or a combination of cosmetic breast procedures. During your consultation your surgeon will go over realistic outcomes that you can have for your procedure, the different sizes, composition, and styles of breast implants available, and smoking restrictions.
Your Breast Augmentation Surgery
Our Chattanooga board certified plastic surgeons will see you in an initial consultation. The consultation offers you an opportunity to meet with the surgeon of your choice to ask questions. Your surgeon will also review your health history and breast augmentation goals to determine if a breast augmentation, or a combination of cosmetic breast surgeries, is right for you.
Day of Surgery
Your breast augmentation will be performed in our fully accredited in-office surgical suite or in a same day surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. IV sedation with local anesthesia is normally used. A breast augmentation typically takes approximately 1 hour.
After your breast augmentation you can expect to be in recovery from 1 to 2 hours. You may experience temporary discomfort and swelling after your procedure. Women will typically return to work several days after surgery, and regular activities may be resumed 4 weeks after surgery.
