Breast augmentation surgery typically takes about 1-2 hours to perform. The length of the procedure may vary depending on several factors, such as the type of implant used and the surgical technique employed. The surgery typically involves making an incision in the breast, creating a pocket for the implant, and inserting the implant either under the breast tissue or under the muscle. Once the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incision with sutures or adhesive strips. After the procedure, patients will need to rest and limit their activities for several weeks while the breasts heal and swelling subsides.
