We have many patients in our office who are considering breast augmentation surgery, but are concerned about recovery time. We tell them that they will probably feel somewhat tired and sore for several days following breast implant surgery, and their breasts may remain swollen and sensetive to physical contact for 2-3 weeks. However, in almost all cases the patient is up and mobile the same day as surgery.
We receive many questions about placement of breast implants from our patients. When a patient has breast augmentation surgery, the breast implant can either be placed partially under the pectoralis major muscle (submuscular) or on top of the muscle and under the breast gland (subglandular). Let Dr. Niessen help you to decide which placement would be best for you.
Breast Augmentation offers a unique opportunity to scientifically “customize” the shape of the breast rather than just bra size. You may want to wear an outfit that reveals more cleavage, change your wardrobe style or simply create the proper balance between your breasts and hips. The larger you wish your cup size, the larger the breast implant Dr. Niessen would consider. Let Dr. Niessen help you decide which breast implant size would be best for you.
