Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation enhances the shape, size, and contour of the breasts. These surgical procedures can give the breasts a more proportionate, balanced appearance that aligns with your aesthetic goals and preferences. 

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ayewah focuses on achieving natural-looking and harmonious results that can be life-changing for women who are unhappy with their breasts. She offers a wide selection of breast implants and surgical techniques to cater to your specific concerns and desires.

Who might consider breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is ideal for women looking to improve the size, shape, and symmetry of their breasts. You may be a candidate for breast augmentation if you:

  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have fully developed breasts
  • Are unhappy with the appearance and/or fullness of your breasts
  • Are in good health
  • Have asymmetrical breasts
  • Have elongated breasts
  • Feel that your breasts are too small
  • Have breasts that have lost shape during pregnancy

Dr. Ayewah may use digital imaging to help visualize what your breasts may look like after surgery.

Are there different types of implants for breast augmentation?

The two most common types of breast implants are saline and silicone. Each has unique benefits and considerations that Dr. Ayewah can discuss with you before your procedure:


Saline implants include a sterile water solution that allows for adjustability during your procedure.


Silicone implants are gel-based and typically feel more natural than saline materials.

I’m getting breast augmentation. How should I prepare?

Proper preparation is essential to ensure a successful surgery and smooth recovery after breast augmentation. Before your procedure, Dr. Ayewah may recommend the following:

  • Quitting tobacco products
  • Investing in surgical bras, wraps, loose clothing, and other postsurgery supplies
  • Staying hydrated and following a balanced diet
  • Maintaining optimal fitness
  • Avoiding anti-inflammatory pain medications (which can increase bleeding)
  • Preparing your recovery space
  • Coordinating care with trusted relatives or friends

Once you decide to undergo breast augmentation, Dr. Ayewah works with you to help you prepare for the procedure and recovery period.

How long is the typical recovery period after breast augmentation?

You may return to work within 1-2 weeks of your procedure, but complete healing can take up to 6-8 weeks, depending on your aftercare.
