How long does it take to recover after breast implant augmentation surgery? Los Angeles plastic surgeon

How long does it take to recover after breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient surgical procedure for cosmetic purposes.  The main goal of breast augmentation is to enhance the volume of the breast in addition to attaining more cleavage and fullness in the upper, lower, and medial poles of the breast.  The procedure entails the surgical placement of a sterile silicone or saline implant within the breast pocket, usually under the pectoralis muscle.  Although there are some technical criterial involved in the placement of the breast implant, most patients will have a breast augmentation in Los Angeles placed in an outpatient surgical center. 


Recovery with breast augmentation depends on the placement of the breast implant above or below the muscle and the amount of surgery involved in improving midline cleavage and stretching the lower pole of the breast.  Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in cosmetic plastic surgery and breast enhancement surgery and performs breast augmentation with both saline and silicone breast implants.  Most patients will recover within several days of their procedure and return to their normal activities within one week of their procedure.  Breast augmentation with Beverly Hills and Santa Monica plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian can help you attain natural and fuller shaped breast with minimal downtime and long lasting results.
