Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

When you first call our Fort Lauderdale office, you will be invited to come in for a consultation with Dr. Kaplan to discuss your hopes and goals for your breast augmentation surgery. Some of the topics you will discuss at your initial consultation include:

– Your medical history

– Your current health including any medications or supplements you are taking

– Facts about breast augmentation surgery and what you can expect

– Your desired shape and size

– Whether saline or silicone implants will be used

– Where your incisions will be placed

If you and Dr. Kaplan agree that breast augmentation is appropriate for you, your surgery will be scheduled. Dr. Kaplan will take measurements and photographs for your medical record. You will receive your prescriptions and pre- and post-operative instructions. Read these thoroughly and ask Dr. Kaplan any questions you might have.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

When you arrive to our Fort Lauderdale clinic on the day of your breast augmentation surgery, you will be prepped and receive anesthesia. In order to minimize scarring, Dr. Kaplan will place your incisions in one of three locations:

– Inframammary or under the breast

– Transaxillary or in the armpit

– Periareolar or around the areolas

The type of incision you receive will depend greatly on the shape and size of your breasts currently and the size to which you are planning to increase.

Dr. Kaplan will then place the implant either underneath the pectoral muscle, also called submuscular placement, or over the pectoral muscle but underneath the breast tissue, also called submammary or subglandular placement.

Once the implants are inserted and placed correctly, layered sutures will be used to close the tissue and your incisions, and the breast augmentation procedure is complete. You will remain under observation in our clinic and then be allowed to return to your home.

Following Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

In the days following your breast augmentation surgery, you can expect to have swelling and some bruising and discomfort. Take your medications as prescribed to keep swelling and discomfort to a minimum. You will be immediately aware of the difference in your breasts, but your final results will not be visible until the swelling has gone down.

While your recovery time may vary and you should always follow Dr. Kaplan’s instructions, most recovery time from breast augmentation lasts approximately 48 hours. After this time, you may return to a more normal routine with reduced activity. Do not return to full activity until Dr. Kaplan has given you the go-ahead.

Keep your follow-up appointments at our Fort Lauderdale office so that Dr. Kaplan can check on your progress and make sure that you are healing well.
