Breast enhancement surgery has helped many women achieve the breast results they desired. Breast enhancement, or breast augmentation, can enhance breasts that are disproportionately small or breasts that have decreased in size over time—it can also be used to correct a severe breast asymmetry (where one breast is significantly smaller than the other). Ideal candidates of the breast enhancement procedure are in good mental and physical health with realistic expectations for the procedure and recovery process.
The recovery process for breast augmentation may vary from patient to patient, and also can depend on if any other procedures are being performed at the same time. Often women may opt to combine the breast enhancement procedure with a breast lift to both enhance the breast size and lift the breast to a more youthful positioning—or they may opt for a Mommy Makeover to target all the areas most affected by pregnancy, nursing and childbirth. After a breast augmentation procedure there will be a 24-48 hour recovery period for most patients, after which limited activity may continue for a few days and swelling and soreness can persist for weeks as the body heals.
