Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammaplasty, is an outpatient procedure that generally takes no more than a couple of hours. This means the patient is allowed to return home after the surgery without staying overnight. Augmentation mammaplasty is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures.
Women decide to partake in breast augmentation surgery to aesthetically augment the size, form, and feel of the breasts.
The procedure duration for breast augmentation depends on the surgical techniques utilized. For example, the incision technique and implant type can either expedite or prolong the procedure. Generally, you can expect to be done within an hour or two and be home to rest soon afterwards.
