Breast Procedures
Breast augmentation surgery (also known as augmentation mammoplasty) is a surgical procedure that can enhance your appearance. Plastic surgeons like Dr. Effie Politis use breast implants to increase and redefine your natural breast shape and size. Call today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Politis to determine if you are a good candidate for a breast augmentation.

Who is it for?

The 24-hour rapid recovery breast augmentation is a procedure that relies on process oriented steps that maximizes planning, minimizes tissue damage and allows patients to get back on their feet in as little as a few hours after waking up from anesthesia.

The recovery time is minimal because the procedure involves no bleeding, minimal tissue damage, and is very gentle and precise. It allows the patient to continue with regular life by that very same evening or the next day. Heavy exercise and intense work should be avoided initially; however, patients are encouraged to get moving right away.

Patients who have undergone the 24-hour breast augmentation procedure can manage any lingering pain with over-the-counter painkillers.
