Introducing Art of Surgery Series: Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, commonly referred to as a “boob job” or breast implant surgery, is one of Dr. Devgan’s favorite procedures. In Dr. Devgan's skilled hands, the surgery may last approximately 30 minutes in total through the use of her signature no-touch rapid recovery technique. Although a shortened procedure in Dr. Devgan’s hands, it is performed in a highly skilled and meticulous fashion. Incisions are made in one of three places: around the areola, the armpits, or underneath the breasts. Saline or silicone implants are then placed either under the muscle or under the breasts to give the patient their desired look and feel.

Being that roughly 300,000 American women undergo breast augmentations each year, it is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in America.

Each patient has different aesthetic goals but a breast augmentation resulting in a beautiful contour, comfort, and a natural look are all common desires. Additionally, seeking out a top female plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Devgan, will ensure that the patient's needs and the procedure are both treated gracefully and discreetly regarding the sensitive topic.

If interested in a breast augmentation, a consultation with Dr. Devgan will ensure that all patient concerns and questions are addressed. Your breasts will be examined, measured and photographed. You will also have the ability to “try on” different breast sizes to determine what size will best achieve the desired goal, look, and feel. During the surgery, usually a 30 minute procedure, Dr. Devgan will provide that the highest quality of care to ensure a fast and seamless recovery while delivering perfect results. Following the procedure, there will be minimal swelling, bruising, and discomfort within the 24-48 hours of surgery. Following the procedure, clearance for all types of physical activity will be typically allowed between 6-8 weeks after the procedure. Of course each patient and case is different, so the timeline of recovery is always dependent on varying factors but will be monitored closely by Dr. Devgan.

Since the breasts can be the centerpiece to many women’s femininity a breast augmentation can be life changing, especially when performed correctly by a top plastic surgeon.
