We want you to get the most out of your consultation. If at all possible, it is best to make arrangements for small children to stay home rather than having them join us for your appointments.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgeries we perform at our Phoenix, Arizona cosmetic surgery office. While choosing the right breast augmentation surgeon for your procedure is very important, following the post-operative directions will also help you gain the best breast augmentation results possible.

After your breast augmentation procedure, you can expect your breasts to be sore and swollen for at least the first week or so. For some patients, the swelling can last as long as a month or two, but light exercise and regular check-ups can help reduce the amount and length of your swelling.

Breast Augmentation

Since breast augmentation requires an incision to be made in the skin, a scar will most likely appear at the incision site. Our surgeons will make sure that they place the incision where it can be concealed by the natural curves and folds of your body.

Depending on the placement of your breast implant, your breast augmentation procedure may take longer to recover from. Patients who have their breast implants placed below the muscle may take longer to fully recover.
