The surgery starts with the administration of anesthesia. Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will insert and position the breast implant.
The type of incision depends on your aesthetic goals, your current breast composition, and your surgeon’s preference and experience. A patient will then be monitored for a few hours and if she doesn’t show any sign of complications, then she will be advised to go home. The usual recovery period from the surgery takes 24-48 hours.
