What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery, also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, typically involves using breast implants to either increase the size of the breasts or restore volume that has been lost after pregnancy or weight reduction. The procedure can:
- Increase the projection and fullness of your breasts
- Improve your figure’s balance
- Enhance your self-confidence and self-image
If your breasts are severely droopy (ptotic), you might need a breast augmentation with lift. This procedure increases the size of the breasts and enhances their overall size, shape, and appearance by combining a breast lift and implants For the most part, both procedures can be done simultaneously. Dr. Jacobson will discuss whether a breast augmentation with lift, breast lift without implants, or a breast lift is the right choice for you after assessing your current situation and aesthetic goals.

Before & After
An augmentation mammoplasty includes the following steps:
- Anesthesia – A specialized doctor will administer an intravenous sedative ( anesthetic ) for your comfort.
- Incision – Once your are asleep and comfortable, Dr. Jacobson will make inconspicuous incisions to minimize the visible post-surgical marks. You will discuss your incision location options with your surgeon and agree with what works best for you. The incisions vary depending on the type of implant used, the degree of breast enlargement desired, and your anatomy.
- Inserting the Implants – Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will insert an implant into a pocket of tissue in each breast. The implant is placed either under the patient’s breast tissue or occasionally pectoral muscle. The method of positioning the implant varies from case to case.
- Closing the Incision – The incisions are then closed with sutures, surgical tape, and skin adhesive.
Once the procedure is complete, you will be taken to a recovery area to be monitored. Your breasts will be wrapped in clear supportive bandages, and you will wear a support bra starting day 2 to minimize the swelling and give further support to the breasts while they heal.
You will likely be able to go home after about an hour. Before you leave the Surgery Center, Dr. Jacobson will have provided you with specific post-operative care instructions that include caring for your breasts, the oral and topical medication you need to take to promote healing and reduce the risk of an infection, as well as the first follow-up appointment date.
You will need to wear a support bra for the first couple of weeks. It is very important to keep the incision site clean. If there is any soreness, it will improve within a couple of days. You may shower the day after surgery and it is important to get appropriate rest so you heal properly. You can typically resume normal activity within 24-48 hours and light exercise after a week.
