Operation: This procedure is used to enlarge the size of breasts using inflatable implants filled with saline.
Operation Time (estimate): Total operating time is 1 to 2 hours.
Anesthesia/Pain Control: Two forms of anesthesia that can be used are local with sedation or general.
Location: This is usually an outpatient procedure.
Side effects (Possible): Possible side effects include temporary soreness, swelling, change in nipple sensation, bruising, increased sensitivity of breasts to stimulation for a few weeks.
Complications (Possible): Possible complications of this procedure include lack of implant permanence, deflation, bleeding, infection, and formation of scar tissue around the implant (this is called capsular contracture and causes the breast to feel tight and hard). Some patients may also experience increased or decreased sensitivity of nipples or breast skin which is occasionally permanent. Mammography requires a special technique.
Downtime: Patients can go back to work in a few days. Physical contact with breasts can resume 3 to 4 weeks after surgery. It will take several months to a year for scars to fade.
Duration of Results: Duration of results varies per person. Some patients may require implant removal or replacement.
