Breast augmentation refers to the procedure known as augmentation mammoplasty. This is a surgery that serves to increase the size of the breast by placing implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. For many women, this surgery can help them feel confident and proud of their bodies. For others, it can simply be a way to rebuild the breast.
Like the breast lift, soreness and swelling is likely for a few weeks after surgery. Scars will fade over time, but they will not disappear entirely on their own. It is important that you listen to our recommendations about when it is time to return to regular activities. Additionally, pay attention to your physical movement when your breasts are healing as contact and jarring movements can cause sensitivity.
