The Procedure

Results & Recovery on Breast Augmentation

Description of Procedure

Many women seek breast enlargement to improve their self-image, correct breast asymmetries or deformities. Breast enlargement can improve the size and shape of your breasts. There are many different types of breast implants (saline v/s silicone), different shapes and textures. Dr. Majzoub will discuss these differences with you including the best surgical approach for the placement of your implant (where to make the incision) and the appropriate placement of the implant (over or under the pectoralis chest muscle). Dr. Majzoub’s approach to breast enlargement is to inquire what his patients are attempting to achieve and educate each patient on the best approach to meet their expectations. It is important for each patient to understand that “bigger is not always better,” Dr. Majzoub prefers to obtain the most natural breast appearance by matching your implant to your natural physique. The procedure generally requires 2 hours of operating time. During your consultation you will be informed of the different types of implants available, the surgical approach and placement of your implants and your implant warranty options.


Patients should anticipate the need to take at least 5 days off from work. A surgical supportive brassiere is worn during the recovery period to help maintain your breast shape. Patients may experience muscular discomfort which is controlled with pain medication. Patients are encouraged to ambulate shortly after surgery and perform breathing exercises. Dr. Majzoub uses dissolvable skin sutures, you may shower in 3-5 days. Most patients can return to light impact work in 2 weeks.


Patients will see the surgical results immediately. The final surgical result will not be noticeable for 2-3 months. Swelling will gradually resolve with time and the implants will fall to a more natural position. A supportive brassiere is recommended during the recovery phase, your surgeon will advise you when you may change to a standard brassiere.
