How long does a breast augmentation surgery last?
I have never been put under general anesthesia before so I am a bit worried. How long does a breast augmentation usually take?
It usually takes 1.5 hours, give or take. The size implant, the incision choice and patient's muscle and skin all play a part in how long the surgery takes. General anesthesia is appropriate. Your doctor should recommend a medical clearance from your primary care doctor prior to surgery. It is appropriate to be a little nervous but just follow your surgeon's instructions and be sure you have checked out their credentials. Augmentation patients are very happy!
