preparation and recovery ideas may help with your breast surgery before
and after your procedure to possibly speed up your

Breast augmentation costs, average:
Saline implants: (salt water inside silicone pouches) are nearly always more affordable.
Silicone implants: (silicone gel inside silicone pouches) are more expensive, sometimes by as much as $2000.
General Anesthesia (where you are asleep) is almost always used for breast augmentations.
Under muscle implants give the best result and last the longest (implant may show through if not placed under muscle).
Procedure time: approximately one hour.
Recovery after breast augmentation: 5-7 days
Full return to normal: 1 year (your skin will have stretched and relaxed after a year if you've done your massages).
Most cosmetic surgeons avoid making the incision in the nipple (periareolar) area whenever possible.
Some surgeries, however, including gynecomastia surgery (breast reduction cosmetic surgery for men) use the nipple (areola) area, to better hide the surgery scar .
Get at least two breast augmentation consultations. After getting
the information you need, you will know if cosmetic surgery is
appropriate for you.
