Breast Augmentation in Boston – The Procedure
Currently, the most common way to increase breast size is with saline filled or silicone gel breast implants. Dr. Davidson has performed breast augmentation with breast implants many times with great success for women of all different shapes and sizes with different aesthetic goals. After your consultation, where he will discuss every aspect of your breast augmentation procedure, he will put together an individualized surgical plan. While you are under anesthesia, he will carefully place the implant either above or below the chest muscle through a small incision underneath the breast, around the nipple, or in the armpit. Dr. Davidson goes to great lengths to minimize visible scars and minimize trauma to the surrounding tissues to ensure the recovery period is as quick and easy as possible.
Breast Augmentation with Breast Lift:
Breast lift surgery and breast augmentation with implants can safely be performed in a single procedure, according to a report published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), when a board certified plastic surgeon creates a customized operative plan in an appropriately screened patient. The study showed that a combined Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift procedure can be safely performed without added risk to the patient.

Breast Augmentation – The Recovery
Keep in mind that breast augmentation is a surgical procedure. You can expect to have some pain, bruising and swelling afterward. These are normal effects and are temporary. When you first go home, you may be asked to wear a special compression bra for a short time to help reduce swelling and hold your breasts in the correct position. Usually, you will be able to return to work in 5 to 7 days after surgery but should avoid heavy exercise for several weeks based on Dr. Davidson’s recommendation.
