Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is a procedure that enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breast. Breast augmentation involves inserting an implant behind each breast. During your first consultation with Dr. Stein, he will evaluate your health and explain which surgical techniques would be most appropriate and effective for you based on the condition of your breasts and skin tone. If your breasts are sagging, we may also recommend a breast lift.
We make every effort to ensure the incision is placed so that any scars will be as inconspicuous as possible.

Implants are placed either directly behind the breast tissue or beneath the pectoral muscle. The implant is positioned in the pocket created to give the best results.

After Breast Augmentation Surgery

You may feel tired and sore for a few days following your surgery. Most of your discomfort can be treated with medication. Immediately after surgery, a special bra will be placed on you and you will be given instructions for how long you should wear it. You may experience a burning sensation in your nipples for about two weeks, which will subside as bruising fades.

Most patients who have implants placed for mild drooping (ptosis) return to work in 2-3 days. Patients with implants placed under the muscles usually need a week.
