Breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery today… for good reason–the satisfaction rate is tremendously high.
Most women that come into my office interested in Orange County breast augmentation, also known as a mammaplasty, have thought about it for quite some time. My ultimate objective with each patient is to fully educate them about all of the options and have them very clearly communicate to me their aesthetic goals.
My best advice to any prospective patient is to make sure that you feel comfortable with the plastic surgeon that will be treating you. They should fully explain to you, without rushing or compromising, every aspect of the procedure. Their attention to detail should be obvious. Do not ever feel that you are rushed into making a decision–if the surgeon makes sense to you and their work demonstrates skill, you will do wonderfully.

Orange County Breast Augmentation Procedure
For increasing the fullness and size of the breasts, surgeons recommend a breast augmentation. Women who are good candidates for this procedure tend to have unevenly shaped or sized breasts, breasts that have begun to sag since childbirth or are disproportionately small. There may be cases in which a woman's breasts may be too droopy, leading to a need for a lift instead of or in addition to an augmentation.
Many aspects of the mammoplasty procedure are customized for each patient depending on her body, breast type, and needs. This includes where the incisions are placed, breast size, implant type, the shape of the implant, and whether it is placed over or under the muscle.

What to Expect
The entire mammaplasty procedure can take up to two hours, and the implant is placed in a way that centers it to the nipple. Whether this is placed below or above the muscle is dependent on the individual. Similarly, the patient's preference and their anatomy will determine the location and types of incisions. Your doctor will discuss the type and size of implant desired, as well as each of their advantages. After which, the surgery will be performed under general anesthesia.
It is important to take in fluids as you rest in bed. It is extremely important to avoid aggravating any of the surgical areas. During the first week, a bra will be fitted, which will allow you to shower. This may even occur two or three days after the operation. It is normal for the breasts to sit a bit higher than they usually do, and they will fall to a more natural position within three to six weeks. You will also likely feel sore in your chest area for the first few days, though this should also fade quickly. You should feel comfortable after the first week.
