Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery can be a great way to look and feel more beautiful. As an important and feminine part of the body, the breasts should be celebrated. If you are not happy with yours, we can help. With the highest standards in plastic surgery, our team at Juventus Cosmetic Center can help you achieve the body you have always wanted. On average, breast implants will last somewhere from 10 to 12 years. However, they can stay inside the body indefinitely.
This type of procedure is not recommended for women that are not completely developed. At the Juventus Cosmetic Center, clients must be over the age of 18 and in good health. Clients under the age of 18 are still growing and their bodies are still changing. It is a major risk to have breast augmentation surgery before the body has finished growing. Your surgeon will also be able to look at your medical records and determine whether or not breast augmentation surgery is safe for you and your body.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

- Increased feelings of femininity and attractiveness
- More positive body image
Two Types of Implants
Prior to surgery you will have the choice between two types of implants. Gel implants are filled with cohesive gel. These implants stay together uniformly but also have a natural feel that closely resembles real breast tissue. Saline implants are filled with a solution made from saltwater. This solution is very similar to the fluid that already exists within the body. These implants can be filled to various volumes and allow a size adjustment easily during the surgery.
You will work together closely with your surgeon to determine which implant is right for you and your body. There are many elements that impact this decision including your body type, breast anatomy and expected results. The type of implant you choose may also be based on the cup size you wish to achieve.
Breast augmentation surgery normally takes only about one hour. Prior to surgery, you and your surgeon will have to determine which type of incision makes the most sense for you personally. Different incisions offer different ways to hide scars or put in the implant. There are three options:
- Periareolar Incision: incision is on the outline of the breast’s areola.
- Transaxillary Incision: incision is in the fold of the armpit.
- Inframmary Incision: incision is below the breast.
When completed by a qualified and experienced surgeon like those at the Juventus Cosmetic Center, you will be able to return home the same day as surgery. Like any other type of surgery, there are risks. Your surgeon will go over all risks with you prior to scheduling your breast augmentation surgery. The major risk that is always addressed is the rupturing of an implant. Depending on the size and type of implant, this risk can change so be sure to consider it when making all of the choices for your procedure.
Recovery from Surgery
Each client will take a different amount of time to recover. However, in general you can expect a full recovery in 1 to 2 weeks after surgery. During recovery you can expect soreness and potential swelling. To make sure you have a quick and safe recovery it is recommended that you avoid heavy lifting, stay away from intense heat and avoid direct exposure to sunlight for two to three months.
About a week or so after surgery, your surgeon may recommend breast implant massages as a part of your recovery. This activity helps lower the risk of scar tissue development. Quite simply, you will have to push the implant up, down and to each side and hold it there for a few seconds.
In the long term, clients with any type of implant should have breast ultrasounds or mammograms every other year. This way, you can ensure that everything is correct after surgery and that your body is accepting the implants without problem. If at any point you believe that a rupture has occurred, contact your surgeon immediately.
