A Breast Enlargement Procedure – What Can You Expect From Surgery

A breast enlargement procedure is an elective surgery to enlarge the size and bust of a woman’s breasts. This surgery can be a solution for women who want to enhance the contours of their bodies. It can also be a solution for breast reconstruction, in the case where a medical procedure caused any structural damage to the breasts. As the human body rarely is symmetrical, breast enlargement surgery can balance out the size between the 2 breasts for a woman as well. In the end, there are several feasible reasons to consider this type of surgery.

Where Do I Start?

As with any medical surgery, you start by consulting a surgeon on the matter. We offer professional and experienced surgeons who can assess your body and point out the possible results that you can expect from a breast enlargement procedure. In the case where another type of breast surgery might yield more desirable results, your surgeon can suggest it to you and walk you through the procedure. Augmentation mammoplasty can be combined with a breast lift surgery as well, resulting in a comprehensive approach to breast reconstruction that addresses the shape, size, and volume in a single procedure.

How Do I Pay?

If you need financing solutions, we can refer you to a financial consultant that can provide financing options through a personal loan or advise you on other viable payment options. Since breast enlargement is a full-blown surgical procedure, you can expect similar costs regarding hospitalisation and the accommodating costs. The surgery takes place under general anaesthesia, which adds to the costs. Therefore, we recommend that you consider the financial aspects of this surgery as well as its benefits before making a final decision on whether to proceed.

What Can I Expect During Recovery?

As with many surgical procedures, you can expect to be tired and sore for a few days after a breast enlargement procedure. Your doctor will prescribe painkillers to ease any pain and discomfort during recovery. If you are a smoker, please refrain from smoking for at least 2 months before and after your surgery. The stitches will be removed after 7 to 10 days. However, the swelling will subside only after 3 to 5 weeks post-surgery. You may also be asked to wear a supportive bra during the recovery period.
