Your Consultation Visit
During your first visit you will visit with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons to discuss the concerns and expectations you have for enhancing your appearance. We provide you with a basic understanding of the procedure and recovery. This discussion requires visiting on your health history, implant choice, incision location, pocket utilization and the risk/limitations inherent to this surgery. A full 60 mins is allotted for this consultation so there is lots of time to get your questions answered. At the end of your visit pricing information will be provided as well as an opportunity to schedule your procedure and a preop visit to finalize implant/operative planning.
The Day of Surgery
For your comfort and safety your procedure will be performed at an accredited surgical hospital. The surgeon, nursing team, and anesthesia providers will all visit with you prior to surgery. All members of the team strive to provide discreet and professional care from the moment you walk in to the hospital until your discharge only a few hours later.
The surgery itself takes approximately one hour. This is the time we need to preform meticulous dissection and implant selection. General anesthesia is provided for this procedure and local anesthetic is utilized to help improve postoperative pain levels.
After surgery you will placed in a postop supportive bra and taken to the recovery room. Your surgeon will then visit with any family or friends that are with you that day. After successful recovery from anesthesia you will be released from the surgical hospital. At the time of your discharge nursing staff will review postop instructions and prescription medications with you and your caregiver.
A follow-up appointment for our clinic will be made for approximately one week after surgery. During that time or whenever a concern arises, we encourage to call our clinic so we can help you confidently navigate your recovery.
