At Plastic Surgery Associates in San Francisco, our board-certified plastic surgeons each have more than 20 years of experience providing patients with beautiful, natural-looking results through breast augmentation—achieving each patient’s goals and providing the enhancements each woman wants.
During breast augmentation consultations, our doctors are often asked how long the procedure will take. Dr. Furnas, Dr. Canales and Dr. Culbertson are committed to providing each patient with the latest techniques and technologies available, which is how they are able to perform breast augmentation effectively and in an efficient manner.
Our doctors customize every breast augmentation to fit the specific body shape and desired results of each individual patient. It is important to realize that there are several factors to consider when planning your procedure. In order to give you the results you’re looking for, you will need to consider the following:
- Breast implant type
- The location of your incision
- Breast implant location
- Breast implant size
- Breast implant profile
Most San Francisco women should expect their breast augmentation to be performed on an outpatient basis. However, some patients may need to stay overnight, depending on their health profile or circumstances.
Our doctors utilize a rapid recovery approach in order to minimize swelling and bruising after breast augmentation, allowing their patients to return to their normal daily activities as soon as possible.
Surgical Timeframe for Breast Augmentation
While the details of every surgery will be unique to each patient, the breast augmentation surgery itself usually takes about 1 hour or less to complete and will be performed under general anesthesia. If you choose to include a breast lift or other plastic surgery procedures with your breast augmentation, your surgery time will increase. However, Dr. Furnas, Dr. Canales or Dr. Culbertson will go over your specific details during your initial consultation.
Your Initial Consultation at Plastic Surgery Associates
In order to guide their recommendations, our doctors will perform a physical exam during your initial breast augmentation consultation to determine your dimensions. They will then take the time to review your treatment in detail so they can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Women in San Francisco will be considered good candidates for breast augmentation if they:
- Want to have larger breasts
- Want to return to the fullness they had in their breasts before pregnancy
- Are physically and mentally healthy enough for elective surgery
- Are of the right age and stage of physical development
- Have realistic expectations for surgical results
To help patients through the decision-making process, our doctors utilize VECTRA® XT—an advanced digital imaging system—so women can envision their results before they decide to have breast augmentation.
