Before a procedure, Dr. Arabitg will walk patients through everything they need to know about the type of breast implants that will be used, the pros and cons of breast augmentation surgery, and the best size/shape options for each patient’s body and lifestyle. He will discuss which type of incisions and anesthesia are most appropriate, and answer any questions. During consultations, it is necessary to discuss a patient’s body type, desired cup size, and desired result. Online consultations are free, and in-office consultations cost just $75. The utmost importance is placed on understanding and addressing patient requests and concerns. Questions that are customarily answered include procedure duration, recovery time, side effects, and risks. Typically, a breast augmentation takes approximately one to two hours to complete, but may vary on a case-by-case basis. The recovery period will usually consist of seven to twelve days, however, it is vital for patients to avoid any strenuous activity for a few weeks after. A proper recovery period is crucial for complete healing. Although all surgical procedures have risk factors, such as infection or scars, the common side effects of breast augmentations are temporary; these usually include brief discomfort, soreness, bruising, swelling, and sensitivity. After the surgery, a position-supporting bra is worn initially, and then the sutures are removed after roughly 7-12 days. Any scarring as a result of the surgery will fade over time.
