What are the risks of breast augmentation?
The risks of breast augmentation are very low when the procedure is performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, but include excessive bleeding, anesthesia reactions, blood clots, or hematoma.
What is the effect on breastfeeding of my breast augmentation surgery?
Breast surgery will not interfere with your milk ducts, provided it is performed in such a way as to protect the nerves in your nipples from being disrupted. Dr. Afrooz will take into consideration your plans to breastfeed when choosing your incision sites and when placing the implants above or below the pec muscles.
What is the effect of pregnancy on my breast enhancement surgery?
There is no reason why a woman cannot become pregnant after her breast augmentation procedure. However, the hormones released during pregnancy along with changes in weight can compromise your aesthetic results, which is why most surgeons recommend that you are finished having children before undergoing upper body contouring.
Can I combine my breast augmentation with other procedures?
Yes! Breast augmentation is well-paired with mastopexy, or breast lift surgery. Mastopexy can address breast sagging and drooping and can correct low-hanging nipples that are facing downward. Breast augmentation is also a major component of a mommy makeover, a combination procedure used to overhaul the appearance after childbirth.
What are the scars associated with breast augmentation?
Scarring with breast augmentation is typically inconspicuous, thanks to the meticulous detail and precision employed by Dr. Afrooz. Incisions are placed around the nipples, with scars well-hidden in the dark pigments of the areolas; within the breast creases, where they are covered by a bra or bikini; or within the armpits, with the scars hidden inside the skin folds.
When will I be able to return to work after my breast augmentation?
Recovery is different for each person. Those with sedentary jobs will be able to resume work sooner than those with physically demanding occupations. Most patients will be able to go back to work within 5-10 days after their procedure.
