Many prospective patients considering breast augmentation surgery ask us how long the surgery takes. While every person’s procedure is unique, breast augmentation surgery typically takes between one and two hours. In general, many breast augmentation surgical procedures are relatively simple, which is why most surgeries are fairly short.
Sometimes, however, the surgery takes a bit longer. The type of anesthesia, location of incision, and type of implant that you select will all play a role in the total amount of time necessary to complete your breast augmentation surgery.
For a better estimate on how long your specific breast augmentation surgery will last, it’s important to meet with a breast augmentation surgeon in the Ft. Lauderdale area. When you schedule an appointment at The Weston Center for Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery, Dr. Jon Harrell will provide you with a timeline of your surgery during your consultation.
Factors that contribute to the time required for breast augmentation surgery include:
- Checking in
- Preparing for surgery
- Administration of general anesthesia
- The surgical procedure
- Recovery time
Besides the time your breast augmentation surgery will take on the day of your procedure, you also should plan for appointments with Dr. Harrell before and after your surgery.
