To Each Her Own: 3 Breast Augmentation Questions to Satisfy Every Woman’s Curiosity

Dr. Grawe of ROXY Plastic Surgery answers 3 questions about breast augmentation to satisfy every woman’s curiosity


You’ve done your homework, scheduled your consultation, and have arrived at ROXY Plastic Surgery for your appointment. Once your name is called and you take a seat in the consultation room, however, you find yourself staring at Dr. Grawe like a deer in headlights. What happened to all those questions you wanted to ask? They seemed to have fallen into some black hole…where you presume your knowledge of ninth grade Algebra also lives. 


Don’t sweat it. Dr. Grawe will give you an in-depth rundown of everything you need to know. But, to help you out, here’s a look at the top three breast augmentation questions patients want answers to. 


What’s Better for Me? Silicone or Saline?

Unsure which breast implant type will deliver your idea of a killer bod? Questions surrounding implant type is a popular topic of discussion, so you’re not alone. Like most things in life, both choices have their pluses and minuses, and what it ultimately boils down to is the right fit for you


Between the two options, silicone is by far the more popular choice. First, most patients enjoy the more natural look and feel of silicone implants compared to saline. Also, silicone implants tend to provide more volume in terms of how they look aesthetically. Plus, silicone implants are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes in comparison to their saline counterparts. 


But don’t rule out saline just yet. Saline implants are a great choice for patients who have an aversion to silicone or who are eager to make their girls pop but want a less invasive type of incision. Always talk over both options with your plastic surgeon to ensure you’ve selected the best choice for you and your body.

How Long Is the Recovery Process? 

Like most patients, you’re probably thinking, “Hey doc, when will I be on my feet again?” Whether you’re fantasizing about the moment you’ll be able to slay that red dress in your closet or you need to plan your timeline for returning to your daily grind, recovery time is different for everyone. How quickly your body heals, the type of incision you get, and your implant size, can all impact your road to recovery. 


To give you a rough idea, however, here’s what you can expect: 

  • Avoid lifting anything heavier than a gallon of milk for a minimum of 2 weeks post-procedure. 
  • You’ll be able to walk around immediately after surgery – and this is highly encouraged to prevent the formation of blood clots. 
  • You must wait a full 48 hours after surgery before removing your outer dressing and showering.
  • You should commit to eating a healthy diet, including high levels of protein, to promote healing. 
  • Most people return to a light-duty job about 1-week post-surgery. You shouldn’t drive or return to the workplace if your still on prescription pain medication or you work in a labor-intensive job. 
  • Although you’ll be swollen immediately after surgery, you can expect to look smoking hot in clothes. Swelling takes approximately one month to subside. 
  • It takes about three months for your results to become more natural and soft to the touch.

How Long Will My Implants Last?

The shelf life of implants is a big question on everyone’s mind. Depending on the condition of your saline or silicone implants, your implants can last up to 20 years or more. There are a few reasons why patients elect to undergo surgery after a few years, including they’re looking to go bigger, they are disappointed in their results from another surgeon, they want to switch from saline to silicone, or they simply want their implants removed.
