Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation surgery, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that lifts and increases the size of your breasts with the use of breast implants.

The procedure can create full breasts, as well as restore the fullness that was lost due to aging, pregnancy or after weight loss. Breast augmentation surgery can also make your breasts more symmetrical and give them a more rounded appearance.

Who should have breast augmentation surgery?

Deciding if breast augmentation surgery is right for you is a very personal decision because the procedure can change the way your body looks permanently.

You may be a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery if you're healthy, have a positive body image, and have reached your ideal weight. The procedure may also be right for you if you aren’t satisfied with the appearance of your breasts post-pregnancy, if they are not naturally as large as you desire, or are unequal in size.

What happens during breast augmentation surgery?

During your breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Ditto makes an incision in your breast and places the implant above or below the muscles in your chest. He uses both silicone and saline implants which will be discussed with you prior to surgery.

After your augmentation is complete, Dr. Ditto closes the opening in your breast with stitches.

The procedure can take from one to several hours to complete. You may be able to go home immediately after your procedure, or you may be required to remain in the hospital. You’ll need to return to the office for a post-surgery checkup within 48 hours.

What results can be expected after breast augmentation?

Soreness and swelling are typical in the days after breast augmentation surgery. After your breasts heal completely, your scars diminish, and your breasts become fuller, rounder, and are better proportioned.
