What to expect from breast augmentation surgery

During breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Hwang will make an incision to place the saline or silicone implant into the pocket and position it properly. The incision is then closed using sutures. You’ll be placed in a recovery area following the procedure and carefully monitored by the team at Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery in West Hills, CA. When you go home, you’ll need to wear a compression garment to maintain your breast health and control the swelling. You’ll have bruising and swelling for several days following the surgery, but then your breasts will adapt and appear healthy and natural.

As with any surgery, there is a risk of complications. You’ll want to discuss any problems you might face with Dr. Hwang before you undergo the breast augmentation.
