Women with small breasts who desire to improve their self image are best candidates for this surgery. It is usually done under general anesthesia and takes 1-2 hours. Incisions are made either under the breast or rarely around the areola. A pocket is created under the chest muscle or less frequently under the breast gland, and an implant is placed. A special bra is worn for 3-4 weeks. Minimal swelling and bruising occurs. Associated pain is controlled with medication. Strenuous activity is restricted for 3-4 weeks. Return to work is usually one week. Complications are rare and are discussed during consultation.
