What is a Breast Augmentation?
There are a lot of great reasons to consider breast augmentation. From women who are naturally small-breasted to those seeking to restore breast size and shape after pregnancy or significant weight loss, Janiga MDs offers plenty of options to help you realize your full body ideal. Breast augmentation is a fairly broad category of procedures that includes breast implants (saline or silicone), breast enhancement or a breast lift.
Dr. Timothy Janiga performs breast augmentation procedures in an outpatient surgery center using general anesthesia. These generally involve minimal incisions before a silicone or saline implant is placed under the muscle or breast gland. The procedure takes about one to two hours with another hour of recovery time before going home.

Recovery & Results of Breast Augmentation
It’s normal to expect some swelling and minimal bruising for up to three weeks. You can expect to return to work within five to seven days, sometimes longer if you have a physically intense job. Full results are expected within three months.
Once you’ve healed, you’ll see fuller breasts with a very natural and proportionate look for your body.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a breast augmentation cost?
The procedure typically costs about $4,000 plus operating room and anesthesia fees. This price can vary depending on how long your procedure is anticipated to take, or if you add a breast lift or liposuction to your procedure.
Am I a good candidate for a breast augmentation?
Women who have smaller breasts that do not have significant sag in their breasts are the best candidates for breast augmentation. If a woman’s breast has a bit more laxity to it, then a breast lift typically is required, in addition to a breast augmentation.
How long will my results last?
Breast augmentation results will last indefinitely so long as the breast implant is in place. Breast implants may require replacement 10-15 years after initial placement, but this varies by the implant manufacturer and type of implant.
Will I be able to breast-feed after breast augmentation?
Women should be able to breast-feed after their breast augmentation. There is a small chance it could make the breast-feeding process more difficult.
Is a breast augmentation painful?
Breast augmentation is typically uncomfortable for the first week after the surgery. Over the next week, your pain decreases. To help with the immediate post-operative discomfort, Dr. Timothy Janiga uses nerve blocks in the operating room while you are still asleep.
