Breast Enlargement Surgery
denver and Cherry Creek, colorado
In your initial consultation, Plastic Surgeon Dr. Broadway will evaluate your health and explain which surgical techniques are most appropriate for you, based on the condition of your breasts and skin tone.
discuss your expectations
Be sure to discuss your expectations frankly with Dr. Broadway and he will describe your alternatives and the risks and limitations of each. Dr. Broadway’s staff will give you instructions to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, smoking, and taking or avoiding certain vitamins and medications. While making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery and to help you out for a few days, if needed.
The surgery will be performed at one of our plastic surgery centers. The anesthesia will be selected based on your health and past surgical experience. The surgery itself takes approximately 1-1/2 hours and stitches are used to close the incisions and may also be taped for greater support. A bandage may be applied over your breasts to help with keeping the implants settled. You’re likely to feel tired and sore for a few days following your surgery, but you’ll be up and around in 24 to 48 hours. Most of your discomfort can be controlled by medication. You will be given detailed instructions in caring for your incisions and when to remove your bandages. As you begin to heal, you will experience different sensations as your nerves heal. Everyone heals differently and some patients do not experience any of these symptoms at all. Remember that you will have surgery on two breasts and each one will heal differently than the other.
Most patients are able to return to work in a week, depending on the level of activity required for your job. You may begin driving once you are off your pain medication for 24 hours. Follow Dr. Broadway’s advice on when to begin exercises and normal activities. Your breasts will probably be sensitive to direct stimulation for two to three weeks, so you should avoid much physical contact. After that, breast contact is fine once your breasts are no longer sore, usually three to four weeks after surgery.
Your scars will be firm and pink for at least six weeks.
Then they may remain the same size for several months, or even appear to widen. After several months, your scars will begin to fade, although they will never disappear completely. Routine mammograms should be continued after breast augmentation for women who are in the appropriate age group, although the mammographic technician will use a special technique to assure that you get a reliable reading.
