"The key to a successful breast augmentation is selecting the right size breast implant. I tell patients that they should be sure in a breast augmentation that they are getting the breasts that they want, not breasts that someone else thinks that they should have. You want to be sure that you select a size that you will live with comfortably." Dr. Rady Rahban
What you want to know about breast augmentation:
Your breast augmentation surgery is an out-patient procedure, but that doesn't mean that it is minor surgery, or that it will be brief. After your consultation and examination at his office in Beverly Hills, Dr. Rahban will be able to estimate for you the length of time that you can expect your procedure to take. Dr. Rahban will want to take his time, and make sure that your results are balanced and beautiful.
"Remember: if it's made by hand, it takes time." Dr. Rady Rahban
For the best possible results, expect that your surgery will be performed while you are under a general anesthetic.
Before surgery, you and Dr. Rahban will have selected your breast implants, deciding on the size and material that will best give you the results that you want. Using a small incision designed to minimize scarring, Dr. Rahban will carefully place each implant into your breasts.
Correct placement is key to a breast augmentation.
Dr. Rahban notes that the best chance for a successful surgery means placing the implant correctly. He will take care to ensure that your implants result in breasts that sit naturally on your ribcage and are well-supported. By placing your implants below your pectoral muscle, he can make sure that they remain in the correct position, look more natural, and are unlikely to have later complications such as capsular contracture.
What you can expect after surgery:
Same day. You will be closely monitored and cared for in our surgery center until you are ready to go home. You'll need someone to drive you home and help you for the first 24 hours after your surgery. When you arrive home, it's important to lie down and rest with pillows to support your back and arms. Make sure that your medications are within easy reach, and have ice packs available to place over your breasts.
First week. Your breasts will be supported by a surgical bra or bandages during the first few days. You will need to leave the bra or dressing on, and you won't be able to shower for a few days. Get plenty of rest, and do not lift anything over 10 pounds. Walk and stretch in the house when you are feeling up to it, but do not exercise.
At your first post-op visit, Dr. Rahban will remove your dressing, and you will be able to see your new breasts
for the first time. Some bruising and swelling is normal and expected. Your implants may sit higher on your chest, but they will settle into place in a few weeks.
Ten days. Many patients return to work after about a week to 10 days. You will need to wear the bra prescribed for you by Dr. Rahban exactly as you are directed, so that your breasts will heal properly and the implant placement will remain correct. You will want to continue to limit your exercise and lifting for the next few weeks.
3-6 months. You'll look and feel great. Any swelling and bruising should be gone, and your small scars will be healing nicely and easily concealed. Your implants will have settled into their correct locations, and your activity level should be as it was before your surgery.
