Commonly asked questions

Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?

Anyone in relatively good health is potentially a candidate for a breast augmentation.

How long do breast implants last?

Modern breast implants can last 10-15 years or longer with proper care. Some may need replacement sooner due to factors like rupturing or capsular contracture. Regular monitoring helps detect potential issues early.

What is the difference between a breast augmentation and a breast lift?

A breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a procedure that increases breast size using implants. It adds volume and fullness to the breasts. A breast lift also called mastopexy, raises and firms the position of the breasts on the chest. It removes excess skin and tightens supporting breast tissue to correct sagging and create a more youthful breast shape.

Can I combine a breast lift and breast augmentation?

What to expect during recovery

Breast augmentation is a significant procedure, and you can anticipate symptoms lasting a few weeks before fully subsiding. During this period, you may experience side effects such as swelling, bruising, redness, and discomfort in the treated area. Throughout your recovery, it's recommended to rest and avoid strenuous exercise or physical activity. Most patients can resume their normal daily activities within a few weeks, though the final results may take longer to settle in. Dr. Pellegrino and his dedicated staff will guide you with a custom treatment plan, offering support and insights during your post-operative follow-up appointments.

Is breast augmentation right for you?

If you would like to discuss having a breast augmentation, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Pellegrino to determine the best individual treatment plan for you. Generally, most adults are candidates for breast augmentation, as long as they are physically healthy. It is important to have a realistic expectation of what a breast augmentation can accomplish, and what size and profile are right for your body. Dr. Pellegrino's expert insight will help determine the best fit for you so you can feel beautiful and confident about your breasts.
