Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Breast Augmentation: A Beautiful Result!

Each woman who is considering a breast augmentation has concerns. Typically, recovery time from the surgery is a concern discussed with Dr. Levi Young, Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, prior to the procedure.

“Each patient is different and recovery time can vary depending on several factors such as implant size and placement. For the first few days, patients will experience tightness in their chest, fatigue, loss of sensation to breast or even hypersensitivity,” Dr. Young describes. “In the weeks following surgery it is important to limit heavy lifting, some physical activity and follow the restrictions you are given while your implants are settling.” Typically, patients fully recover from discomfort and limitations in six weeks. Your results will still continue to evolve over the next couple of months, appearing and feeling more natural over time.

During your breast augmentation consultation, Dr. Young will discuss implant sizes with you and develop an individualized plan to help you reach your desired look and feel. “We have a sizing appointment where you can try implants with varying volume to get an even better idea of what we can accomplish with your breast augmentation procedure. This will provide the results you are looking for,” Dr. Young affirmed.

One concern is how long breast implants last. “Breast implants are long-lasting and safe but are not considered ‘lifetime devices,’” Dr. Young continued. “Today’s breast implants can remain in good shape for 20 years or more; however, the older your implants, the greater your risk of rupture or other complications. Some complications that can affect needing to remove or replace your implants would include capsular contracture, rippling, changes in implant position, or simply wanting a change in size.”

Visit Dr. Young for a consultation if you’re considering breast augmentation, during which you will learn all of the potential options for creating results you love.
