Where Will Your Procedure Be Performed & How Long Will It Take?
In Red Deer breast augmentation surgery is commonly performed on an outpatient basis at a hospital or state-of-the-art surgical unit while the patient is under a general anesthesia and asleep. Once the anesthesia has been administered to the patient the breast tissue is raised to create an open pocket under the tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. The operation time can vary depending on the size of your breast implants where typically 300cc and 400cc implants can last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. Please note that during your consultation process your physician will speak in detail as to where he will be performing your procedure.

How To Determine Your Ideal Cup Size In CC’s

What Is The Recovery Process Like?
Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Bandages are applied right after surgery to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts. Once the bandages are removed, a specialized surgical bra will need to be worn for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with the surgery. This pain can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the directions given by the physician after surgery.
