Breast Augmentation: What to Expect on the Day of Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is performed on an outpatient basis in a hospital or approved surgical facility. Generally, you will arrive about 1 hour earlier than the surgery time to be prepared for the surgery. The anesthesia doctor and nurses will obtain a medical history and will conduct a physical exam as necessary. During the surgery you will be completely monitored and safety is always paramount. Your Plastic Surgeon will meet with you and answer any last minute questions you may have. Breast size and goals are reviewed again. Using a marker, the incision line and the surgical plan is drawn.

The surgery takes about 1 hour. After the procedure, you will go to the Recovery Room where you will rest and recover until you are ready to go home.
