Breast augmentation in Beverly Hills is a very popular procedure, commonly performed on an outpatient basis. The procedure typically takes about 1 hour to perform and is usually performed at an accredited surgery center in Los Angeles. Most women who undergo breast augmentation in Los Angeles or breast augmentation in Beverly Hills have a relatively quick recovery. After the procedure, patients typically will be in the recovery room for one hour after which time they are discharged.
On the day of surgery, you will meet initially with the nurse and then the anesthesiology staff, who will carefully explain the type of anesthesia they will be using. After this, Dr. Kapoor will re-examine you and review the surgical plan. Lastly, he will usually make some markings. After this, you will be escorted to the operating room, where you will be carefully monitored and general anesthesia will be administered. The procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete, after which time you will be in the recovery room, where a nurse will carefully monitor you. You can expect to be slightly drowsy most of the day. Most patients do not have a significant amount of pain during this time and we recommend taking pain medications as needed every four to six hours. You can typically expect to be able to return to work in 3-5 days and start exercise and more strenuous activities in 3-4 weeks. Initially, Beverly Hills breast implants will be slightly high due to swelling in the muscle. After this, they will gradually settle over 6-8 weeks time. During this time, Los Angeles breast augmentation patients can help this process by massage of the breasts. At your first postoperative visit, our Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Office will provide instructions on how to perform Los Angles Breast Implant massage.
