What is augmentation mammaplasty?
Augmentation mammaplasty, also known as a breast augmentation or more commonly known as a “boob job”, is part of one of the cosmetic breast procedures offered by Dr. Jaime Campos-Leon. This procedure involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of the breasts. A breast augmentation restores breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy, gives the breasts a more symmetrical and rounded shape.
There are different types of incisions where the implant may be inserted. In addition, there are various types of implant materials that might be better suited for the patient’s desired outcome. You can discuss these options with Dr. Campos-Leon before the procedure.
Recovery and Aftercare
After the procedure, dressings or bandages will be applied to the areas of incisions and you will be given an elastic bandage support bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. Dr. Campos-Leon will communicate more information about the necessary after care procedures following the surgery.
