If you’re interested in breast augmentation surgery, the first step will be to have a consultation with Dr. Landford. During this meeting, she will discuss different aspects of the procedure with you and answer all of your questions. She will also listen to your specific goals for the surgery and ask you questions to ensure that you’re a good candidate. If you choose to progress with breast augmentation, Dr. Landford will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan, which will include choosing which type of implants you prefer and deciding on their shape and size.
Typically, breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. To begin the surgery, Dr. Landford will make incisions either underneath the breasts, around the areolas, or underneath the arms. She will then carefully insert your custom-made breast implants, positioning them based on your unique treatment plan. Once the implants have been properly positioned, she will close the incisions with stitches and apply bandages as needed. In total, the surgery should take between one and two hours. You’ll be able to head home a couple of hours after the procedure, but you’ll need someone else to drive you.
