How long is the recovery from breast augmentation?


Most of our patients can return to work after breast augmentation surgery at about five days post op. Some like to take a whole week off from work and rest and recuperate. Patients usually report being most uncomfortable at day 2-3, with pain subsiding after and getting better from there.

What is the difference in breast implant brands?


Breast implants today are made extremely safe and very durable. Competing brands offer mostly the same choices in actual materials used, shaped implants and projection. Most breast implants are filled with either saline fluid or have some sort of cohesive gel fill.  Others are highly cohesive and/ or shaped.
