Breast Augmentation in Rosenberg, TX
Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery is pleased to offer breast augmentation to patients in Rosenberg, TX. This surgery is also known as augmentation mammoplasty, and involves adding implants to restore breast volume that was lost during pregnancy or after dramatic weight loss. In some cases, women elect to undergo breast augmentation because they simply want larger breasts.
Before undergoing surgery, Dr. Stapenhorst may require patients to undergo certain pre-operative tests. A mammogram is often recommended before and after breast augmentation to predict how breast tissues might change in the future.
The operation is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Stapenhorst will make a series of incisions, and then insert the implants. Patients are required to spend time in a recovery room shortly after breast augmentation is completed.
After the surgery, the breasts are surgically wrapped to help with the healing process. The dressing can normally be removed one or two days after a patient goes home. A support bra might be needed for a short time to help the patient adjust to the weight of her new breasts.
How Long Is The Recovery After Breast Augmentation?
Following the breast augmentation procedures, patients can expect their breasts to be tender or swollen for up to a week after surgery. It is recommended that women take one to two weeks off of work or school in order to aid the recovery. The first few days should be limited to minor activity and plenty of rest. Results can usually be seen after the first month and will continue to improve as the breasts heal. Dr. Stapenhorst can provide a prescription for pain management medication to help alleviate any discomfort. During your consultation and following the procedure, Dr. Stapenhorst will advise of any additional guidelines or recommendations you may need to follow.
