How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last?

If you want larger or fuller breasts, you have a lot of company. Breast augmentation consistently ranks among the top plastic surgical procedures. Most women love their results, but you may wonder how long those results will last. Today’s advanced breast implants look better and last longer than their predecessors so that you can enjoy your results for many years. 

What is Breast Augmentation?

Women have many reasons for considering breast augmentation. Some feel like their natural breasts look too small. Others have asymmetrical breasts that implants can correct. You may have lost breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy. Whatever the reason, breast augmentation gives breasts more volume, shape, and fullness using safe, long-lasting implants.

How Does Scar Less Breast Augmentation Work?

Typical breast augmentation leaves visible scars where the surgeon inserts the implants. Dr. Vitolo specializes in Scar Less breast augmentation. Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA) uses only one small incision inside your belly button. 

Dr. Vitolo creates two channels through the fat layer of the abdomen, one to each breast. He makes a pocket for the implants using a laparoscopic camera to guide him. He will place empty saline implants into the pocket and then fill them. 

How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last?

Once you have your new implants, you may want to keep them as long as possible. Breast implants are made to last ten to twenty years on average. However, implant technology continues to improve, and many women choose to get new implants before that time. The majority of women keep their implants for at least ten years. Choosing the right surgeon helps make sure you are happy with your results in the long term.

What is Recovery Like From Breast Augmentation?

Traditional breast augmentation requires one to two weeks of recovery before returning to work. A Scar Less breast augmentation allows you to return to work in as little as two days. Because the TUBA technique causes minimal muscle or breast tissue disruption, you will have little to no swelling or bruising. Follow your aftercare instructions to ensure you recover as fast as possible. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

If you want larger, fuller breasts, you might be a good candidate for breast augmentation. Ideal candidates do not have any significant health problems and do not smoke. If you can have a traditional breast augmentation, you can probably have a Scar Less procedure instead. However, this procedure only works with saline implants. If you prefer silicone, Dr. Vitolo can use other surgical methods with minimal scarring. 

Professional and very experienced. Highly recommend Dr Vitolo. Will be going back!
