Who is breast augmentation for?
There is no average breast augmentation patient. Each patient has unique, personal reasons for choosing breast augmentation.
At CAPS, we take the time to get to know each patient’s needs, goals, and expectations before we perform a breast augmentation.
Some patients desire larger breasts because they’ve always wanted a fuller figure. Others come to us, after they have delivered and breastfed their children, with the goal of regaining their pre-baby bodies. Still others come to us with the desire of balancing their breasts or of refining their shape. These are just a few of the reasons patients choose to pursue Breast Augmentation. Behind each of these reasons is the story of a woman who deserves the confidence that a Breast Augmentation can help her to gain.
Our goal is simple. We want our patients to look better, feel better, and live better when they leave our office than they did when they entered it.
We want to hear your story and to help you to achieve your aesthetic goals. Schedule a consultation today to see if a Breast Augmentation is right for you.
I am very pleased with the results of my surgery…the staff worked very hard to please me.
Scheduling a consultation is the first step in making an informed decision about your breast augmentation. Your consultation is your chance to learn more about breast augmentation, to ask questions, and to explore your options with the personal guidance of one of our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons.
During your consultation, your doctor will help you to determine if breast augmentation is right for you by examining your medical history and learning about your unique aesthetic goals and expectations for the surgery. You should expect your doctor to ask you:
- Why do you want breast augmentation?
- What are your expectations for the procedure?
- What is your desired outcome?
- Do you have any drug allergies?
- What previous medical treatments have you received?
- Have you had any previous surgeries? If so, what were they?
- Do you have a family history of breast cancer?
- What have been the results of any mammograms or previous biopsies you have had?
In addition to asking these questions, your Plastic Surgeon will use your consultation to discuss your breast augmentation options, examine and measure your breasts, take photographs for your medical record, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of breast augmentation and any risks or potential complications, and answer any questions you may have.
At CAPS, we never perform procedures until we are certain our patients are fully-informed and know exactly what to expect before, during, and after the breast procedure. As each patient is unique, we encourage you to seek answers to any and all questions you may have from a trusted, board-certified Plastic surgeon. The Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at CAPS are always happy to walk prospective breast surgery patients through the steps of any procedure and to answer their questions. You’ll find the answers to some common questions below, but keep in mind that your consultation is your opportunity to get personalized answers to your questions.

What does the recovery timeline for breast augmentation look like?
Immediately after surgery: It is typical to experience swelling and discomfort. In the first 24 hours patients may experience bruising of the breasts and swelling.expand to read more
2-3 days after surgery: During this time, the patient will experience slight swelling as the wound heals.
10-21 days after surgery: Patients are usually permitted low-impact lower body physical activity at this time, but are still advised against upper body resistance exercise and any straining or lifting over 10 pounds.
3-4 weeks after surgery: pain and swelling have likely completely subsided. Patients can begin to participate in higher impact exercise and can begin exercises that incorporate the upper body. As each patient is different, it is important to check with your physician to see exactly how long you should wait to perform these exercises.
6 weeks after surgery: The implants have likely dropped from their initial position and developed a more natural shape. At this point, swelling should be down to 5-10% and patients will likely feel that the healing is nearly entirely complete.view less
