Added on 4th November 2020
How long does a breast augmentation surgery take to perform?
The surgery for a breast augmentation can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half. In some cases is can take longer than this if you’re looking to combine the surgery with another procedure such as:
There can also be circumstances where the surgery takes longer if the implant needs to be placed either under the muscle or the dual plane projection. If you opt for a bigger implant size this can also require the surgery to be longer – this is because the pocket size needs to be larger for the implant to fit into.
During your surgery with the team at Gary Ross, we’ll perform the procedure under a general anaesthetic.
What should I expect once the surgery has been performed?
Once you’ve had the surgery, generally you should be able to eat, drink and mobilise shortly after. You have the option of whether you wish to go home the very same evening of the surgery or to stay overnight where we can accommodate you for a stress free overnight stay.
