Breast Augmentation

About the Breast Augmentation Procedure

How the breast augmentation procedure works

Breast augmentation is performed at a licensed day hospital. An anaesthetist will present and will use a general anaesthetic. Typically, bleeding is minimal and there is usually little if any bruising. After surgery you are typically kept in a recovery area for about two hours before you can go home.

Care after your breast augmentation

Dr Szalay is contactable 24 hours a day if you need him. Most patients are able to return to their usual activities after a couple of days, but some people might be slower. It would be wise to allow for one week off work and driving. If your work involves lifting, you should allow longer.

Important information before your breast augmentation

  • You need to avoid alcohol for two weeks before the procedure as this can cause bleeding
  • If you are a smoker, you need to stop 3 weeks before the procedure
  • You need to bring in all your medications that we have prescribed

Important information after your breast augmentation

  • Only take the medication as advised by the Precision Cosmetic Surgery team.
  • You will need someone to drive you home and stay with you overnight.
  • You can’t do strenuous exercise for three weeks.

Detailed written instructions will be provided to you when you book in.
