One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries available with a plastic surgeon in the area of Houston, TX is that of breast augmentation. Breast augmentation is a procedure that is performed to change the size, shape, and appearance of a woman’s breasts. Breast augmentation is done to reconstruct the breasts after surgeries such as mastectomies or to add implants to enlarge the breast’s size and contours. This procedure, performed by Dr. Thomas Wiener, is predictable when performed by an experienced plastic surgeon. Women considering this treatment often have questions about what they can expect before, during, and after their procedure.
- Before – before a woman can obtain breast implants or reconstructive surgery, a consultation appointment and initial evaluation is needed. Women can call our office to request their appointment with our friendly front office team. During this visit, the doctor will evaluate the patient, learn about their medical history, and talk with them in regards to what they would like to achieve with this procedure. If the patient is deemed an appropriate candidate for the procedure, a surgery date is scheduled.
- During – breast augmentation is done with general anesthetics. Patients will be asleep for their procedure, though their vitals will be monitored by our anesthesiologist who is present during the entire surgery. Women will feel groggy when they come out from anesthesia and need to arrange for appropriate transportation after surgery to return home.
- After – after breast augmentation surgery, women need to closely follow their post-operative instructions advised by our team of professionals. By following these recommendations, women can ensure a speedy recovery and reduced risks of infection in the incision area. Women need to attend their follow-up appointments with Dr. Thomas Wiener to confirm that they are healing appropriately and to get permission to increase physical activity and return to work or school. Several weeks are needed to heal from this procedure and return to one’s normal lifestyle.
