Before & After

What to expect in your consultation

Getting the breasts you want can be a transformative experience, especially if you’ve been unhappy with your breasts for a long time. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jill Hazen will work with you to deliver your desired results on an individual basis. This means having a consultation with her before your procedure. This consultation is incredibly important, as it’s where many details of your procedure will be determined and where you will be able to voice any questions or concerns. Dr. Hazen will go over your medical history, your lifestyle, and your desired aesthetic goals. 

Together, you and Dr. Hazen will determine al the details of your surgery, including: 

  • The size and shape of your implants
  • The type of implants you want
  • Where your implants will be placed
  • How much your breast augmentation will cost
  • The type of incisions that will be used, and their placement

Saline and silicone implants

There are two options for breast augmentation: saline implants and silicone gel implants. Each of these have their own particular set of advantages. Both saline implants and silicone gel implants are safe and effective for improving the size and shape of a woman’s breasts, and results can be seen almost immediately following surgery.

Breast augmentation surgical details

Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia. First Dr. Hazen will create a small incision in the natural fold of the breast.

The saline or silicone implant is then inserted through the incision before being closed. It will be placed either behind the breast tissue or underneath the chest muscle.

The procedure takes less than two hours, and small incision marks are hidden in the natural fold of the breast.

Recovery and results

It takes about two months to fully recover from a breast augmentation, although most patients are able to return to non-strenuous type work in a week. Dr. Hazen will let you know when you can resume exercising. You can expect mild swelling and/or bruising for up to a week following the procedure. After your surgery, you will be given a protective surgical bra to wear for about a week. After this, you can begin wearing a soft bra with no wire. Do not shower for 48 hours, and be sure to take short, frequent walks around your home every day to help your circulation. We recommend that a friend or family member stay with you for 24 hours post-surgery to assist you. Results can be seen almost immediately following the your breast augmentation, and these results will continue to improve as you heal.
