How Does Breast Augmentation Work?
Dr. Stile uses silicone gel (“gummy bear”) or saline-filled implants to achieve your desired results. Both types of implants have advantages, and Dr. Stile will review these with you during your consultation.
He performs the procedure using an incision around the areola or in the fold underneath the breast. Dr. Stile usually uses a dual-plane method of implant placement that puts the implant partly above and partly below the muscle for results that look and feel natural.
What to Wear After Breast Augmentation
You will feel sore and swollen for the first few days after your breast augmentation, and you will not be able to lift your arms. You should ensure you have loose-fitting, comfortable shirts made of soft material. Ideal shirts zip or button up the front so you can easily put them on and take them off.
Dr. Stile recommends taking two weeks off work to give yourself time to recover. You can resume most normal activities at this point, but strenuous activities or exercise should wait for four weeks. You will need to sleep on your back or side for at least a month to protect your implants.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?
Breast augmentation costs vary depending on several factors, including:
- Your surgeon’s skill and experience
- The cost of living in your location
- The complexity of your procedure
- The type of implant used
Dr. Stile’s price for saline implant augmentation starts at $5,500, and silicone implants start at $6,500. Other factors will impact the overall cost, so we recommend a consultation to obtain an accurate estimate.
