Feeling normal. Feeling confident. Feeling feminine. Enhancing self-esteem…These are just a few of the reasons breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic procedure in the world for women. Since 1963, when the first silicone breast implants were created, women have flocked to cosmetic surgeons to request this procedure.
The following are several points you need to consider :

The variety of implants to choose from is greater than ever. Two saline options are available: traditional and structured. Silicone gel-filled implants are now available with several types of gel filling. And multiple shapes and projections help accommodate different patient desires and different breast sizes.
Saline breast implants may not feel quite as soft or natural as their silicone counterparts but detection of failure is easily seen by looking at the breast; and this provides some women peace of mind. Silicone gel implants are more popular but require routine surveillance with MRI exam.
Implants can be placed above or below the pectoralis muscle, but subpectoral placement usually provides better implant coverage and reduces the risk of capsular contracture.
The early recovery from breast augmentation surgery usually takes about a week. Most women utilize narcotic pain medication along with some non-steroidal for about three to five days. Most women return to non-strenuous duties in about five to seven days after surgery. Return to full strenuous gym exercise usually takes six to eight weeks. A support/compression bra is worn for about eight weeks.
The price for breast augmentation surgery will vary based upon the surgeon’s fee, the cost of the breast implants the operating room fee, and the anesthesiology fee. It is important to balance the cost of surgery with the perceived value of the operation (surgeon experience, level of trust, patient goals, and the quality of the results).
