What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
The breast augmentation procedure will help reestablish breast volume after weight loss, general aging or pregnancy. Breast augmentation can allow you to obtain a more complete breast shape or improve natural breast size as well as fix any asymmetry.
You Breast augmentation will likely be carried out at our on-site surgical center that meets the same certification requirements as the hospital. Often times, this surgery does not require an overnight stay, and you will go home the same day as the procedure.
You will be under general anesthesia during your breast augmentation procedure, where you are asleep for the entire operation. When you wake up, you’ll be given care and attention by our expert registered nurses in our private recovery room.
