The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Traditional breast implant surgery involves the placement of an implant either behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle. At our practice, we utilize these techniques and others to provide a full range of breast augmentation procedures. This includes the subfascial breast implant technique which, for some, provides the combined benefits of both of the previously mentioned traditional breast implant techniques. Other techniques include the scar minimizing armpit incision technique, implantation through the abdomen during the tummy tuck procedure, the combination breast augmentation / breast lift procedure known as mastopexy, and others. These advancements in breast surgery, and the fact that we provide both silicone and saline implants, allows our experienced surgeon to perform breast augmentation procedures that are truly customized to meet each patient’s needs.
The breast augmentation process at our Minneapolis / St Paul area practice begins by first making decisions about the type and size of breast implants to be used, the location of the incision, and how the implant will be placed. Of course, Dr. Kovanda will help you understand the different results that will be achieved through each of these options so you can make a fully informed decision. Prior to surgery, you will be given some specific instructions to properly prepare for the procedure. From your initial discussion with Dr. Kovanda to your post-surgical recover, the process typically takes about two weeks.
The surgical process usually takes about an hour, and patients can expect to feel sore during the first 48 hours after the procedure. The complete recovery process can take from two weeks to a month. During this time, Dr. Kovanda will continue to ensure your recovery is a smooth one.
