Breast augmentation is one of the more popular plastic surgery procedures today. It is a surgical enhancement procedure created to emphasize the shape and size of your breasts. Breast augmentation is also known as a breast enlargement or enhancement. The use of implants helps the breasts become larger and firmer, creating a curvy and youthful look. There are many different types of implants to choose from as well as different incision sites and locations. A breast augmentation in Austin by Dr. Haydon will make your breasts larger, fuller and more voluminous. The surgery does not move the breasts closer together of lift sagging breasts, however it will replenish the volume in the breasts if it has been lost or enhance breasts that were small to begin with.
About Breast Augmentation Procedures
The typical breast augmentation procedure involves a small incision to insert an implant into the breast to make it larger. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis (in most cases) at a hospital or surgical center. There are different options for the incision site, which is something you will go over with Dr. Haydon before the procedure begins.
During the breast augmentation surgery, the breast tissue is raised to form a pocket for the breast implant to be inserted. Inserting an implant behind each breast can boost the size of the breasts up to several cup sizes. Implants can either be saline or silicone-filled, which is also something that can be discussed with your doctor. The surgery itself typically lasts 1 to 2 hours.

Breast Augmentation Recovery Process
When recovering from your breast augmentation, you will need to get plenty of rest and limit your movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. A specialized surgical bra will need to be worn for several weeks to aid recovery. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with the surgery, however this pain can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by following the directions given by the physician very carefully following the surgery.
