Breast Augmentation

Augmentation Mammaplasty

Breast augmentation is the surgical placement of breast implants to increase fullness and improve symmetry of the breasts, or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.

Preparing for breast augmentation surgery

In preparing for breast augmentation surgery, you may be asked:

  • Get a blood test
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding

Breast augmentation surgery may be performed in an accredited outpatient or ambulatory surgical center or a hospital.

If your breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.
