Surgery Day & Long-Term Results

Dr. Sisco usually performs your breast augmentation while you’re under general anesthesia, an approach that ensures your complete comfort throughout the duration of surgery. A typical breast augmentation takes about 90 minutes to complete. Once you awaken from surgery, you’re monitored for a brief time in the recovery area before returning home in the care of a friend or family member.

You can expect to feel groggy and a bit “out of it” for the remainder of the day. When you do nap, it’s important to sleep on your back to avoid pressure on your implants. You’ll have prescribed pain medication to reduce discomfort after surgery. Most patients feel comfortable going back to work and other light, everyday activities after a few days. Exercise and more physically demanding pastimes can be resumed after several weeks. Dr. Sisco offers you a more specific timeline as you plan your surgery.

By adhering to your post-op guidelines and maintaining a reasonably healthy lifestyle, you can enjoy the results of your breast augmentation for many years. However, it’s important to consider that breast implants don’t last forever. Over time, they may weaken or lose their shape, a process that generally takes several years. Dr. Sisco also offers breast implant revision to keep your breasts looking their best for as long as you like.

I am very pleased to write this letter to say ‘thank you’ to you and your staff for the outstanding job you have all done. I was apprehensive at first in letting my son have a cosmetic surgical procedure done, but once we met with you, I felt completely comfortable and had no worries that he was in good hands. From our first visit, you and your staff made us feel welcome and showed a genuine concern for my son’s appearance and wellbeing — and didn’t look at him like just another patient wanting to look better. The surgery went just as you thought it would, and you were pleased with the outcome, as was I. I just can’t say enough about you and your staff. From beginning to end, it was more than a pleasure to deal with you all — and should there ever be a need in our future for any more procedures, you will be our first and only choice.

—S.T.
