Customized Breast Augmentation

As every patient’s body and aesthetic vision are unique, Dr. Antony approaches breast augmentation by developing a highly individualized surgical plan. She offers comprehensive consultations to discuss desires, concerns, and the range of options available, from implant types and sizes to the surgical techniques that best suit the patient’s anatomy and wishes.

Your Breast Augmentation Consultation With Dr. Anu Antony

If you're considering breast augmentation surgery, the first significant step will be to sit down for a private consultation with Dr. Anu Antony. During this no-pressure meeting, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss the details of the procedure, including what you can expect before, during, and after your surgery. Dr. Anu Antony will take the time to get to know you and understand exactly what you're hoping to achieve with your breast augmentation procedure. You'll have the chance to ask any questions and voice any concerns that you may have about the surgery.

During your consultation, you will also undergo a physical exam, and the doctor will have questions about your health and medical history. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to view before and after photos of past breast augmentation patients, allowing you too visualize the potential results you can expect from your surgery.

Textured vs. Smooth Breast Implants

One of the choices you'll have before undergoing breast augmentation is whether you prefer textured or smooth breast implants. Textured implants are created with a special finishing process, which adds texture to the outer shell of the implant. Both smooth and textured implants offer unique advantages. When you have your consultation with Dr. Anu Antony, she will help you decide whether smooth or textured implants are the ideal choice for your situation.

Texturized breast implants have an easier time adhering to the surrounding tissue, which helps to prevent undesired rotation. Additionally, with textured implants, you may be at reduced risk for capsular contracture, a serious complication in which a capsule of scar tissue tightens around the breast implant. That said, smooth breast implants are not as likely to experience rippling as textured implants are. For this reason, we generally recommend smooth implants for patients who have a relatively small amount of breast tissue.

What to Expect During Your Breast Augmentation Recovery

Immediate Postoperative Period

Immediately following your breast augmentation surgery, you will be taken to a recovery area, where you will be closely monitored as you awaken from anesthesia. You may feel groggy and sore, but these sensations will be managed with pain medications prescribed by Dr. Antony. A support bra or compression garment will help reduce swelling and support the breasts throughout your recovery.

First Few Days

During the first few days after surgery, it’s normal to experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Dr. Antony will prescribe medication to manage pain and instructions on caring for your incisions to minimize scarring. You will be advised to limit physical activity and avoid lifting anything heavy. Rest is crucial during this initial recovery phase.

Follow-Up Visits

Dr. Antony will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery and ensure your new breasts heal properly. These visits are the opportunity to answer any concerns and evaluate how the tissues are healing.

Recovery Timeline

Recovery varies by individual, but most patients can return to work and light activities within one week, provided their job does not involve heavy lifting or strenuous activity. Complete physical activities, including exercise and lifting, can resume within six weeks. Dr. Antony will provide you with a tailored timeline based on the type of augmentation performed.

Dr. Antony is committed to supporting you throughout the process, ensuring you feel informed and cared for from your initial consultation through your recovery and beyond.
