How long does breast augmentation surgery take?
The breast augmentation surgery takes approximately an hour and fifteen minutes, and patients go home following surgery. Most breast augmentation patients resume normal activities within three or four days, although more strenuous activities may require a wait of four to six weeks.
What are the benefits of silicone implants?
The majority of Dr. Murphy’s breast augmentation patients are now choosing silicone gel breast implants. Silicone breast implants offer patients the best option to have the most natural feeling, and often most naturally appearing, breasts. In relatively thin patients who do not have a lot of natural breast tissue, and especially if they wish to have larger implants, silicone breast implants are particularly beneficial. Silicone breast implants are much less likely to show any visible rippling around the edges and it is less likely that the implant will be felt underneath the skin.
Does breast augmentation increase my risk of breast cancer?
Breast augmentation has not been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer. Similar studies have also shown that should someone get breast cancer, the stage at diagnosis, treatment and outcome are no different in patients with breast implants as compared to those without. Dr. Murphy recommends all patients follow the guidelines of the American Cancer Society regarding timing of mammograms both before and after their breast augmentation surgery. Screening exams such as mammography need to be performed in a facility familiar with patients with breast implants, and other modalities such as ultrasound may also be used. Remember that all of the breast tissue is over the top of the breast implant and is easily palpated during breast self-exam.
