Making the decision and preparing to have breast augmentation surgery takes much longer than the actual surgery. Most people take a week or more to meet with their surgeon to discuss details of the surgery and the desired results they’re hoping for. This pre-surgery process is vital to your success.

Michigan cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rifai, states that the average breast augmentation surgery lasts about an hour and then 30-45 minutes of recovery afterwards. Cases may differ but this is the average length of time it takes. It’s suggested that you have a friend help you afterwards.

How Is Your Breast Augmentation Performed?

Typically, your breast augmentation procedure will take place on an outpatient basis. This means that you will be in either a hospital operating room, a surgical center, or the surgical suite of a surgeon’s office. Our Birmingham cosmetic surgeon will work with you to find the right approach for your treatment plan which gives you the optimal aesthetic results.

It may take up to 6 weeks for your swelling and bruising to disappear however, you’ll be able to return to work within 4 days of the surgery.

Deciding to have breast augmentation surgery is a big step and choosing the right doctor is important. If you have questions about the breast augmentation procedure contact Michigan’s cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai’s office to learn more.
