If you choose one of our Newport Beach surgeons to perform your breast augmentation, you will notice your breast augmentation results, an improvement in breast shape and size, immediately. Your implants initially may appear too high after a submuscular breast augmentation. Although, this is to be expected because the muscle will take a variable amount of time to relax.
As your muscle relaxes, your implants will “drop” or “settle” into their intended position. During this time, you may experience soreness in your chest, but this rapidly disappears.
Mild swelling of the breasts usually takes several weeks to subside. You should be able to resume your normal daily activities the day after surgery.
After three weeks, you should be able to resume most exercise activities, such as swimming, running, and aerobics.
Six weeks after surgery, you should be able to resume all physical activities.
Satisfaction with your new image will continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your desire for fuller breasts.
Following breast augmentation, especially with transaxillary and TUBA procedures, the implants will often appear too high on the chest. While this may concern you at first, implants will gradually settle into place over the course of a few weeks to several months as the intact supporting muscle fascia (muscle envelope) and the overlying breast skin stretch to accommodate the implants.
The decision to get breast augmentation isn’t an easy one, and we understand that. The implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and types, and there are a lot of choices to make when choosing the best implant for your body. But, depending on your preferences and what is best for your needs, our surgeons will recommend one or more implant types, as well as placement, and incision options.
During your initial consultation, one of our highly-qualified surgeons will discuss all aspects of the breast augmentation procedure with you, including risks and benefits, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
