Breast Augmentation FAQS
1) What is a breast augmentation?
A breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size or shape of your breast restoring volume after significant weight loss, pregnancy or as a reconstructive technique that may follow breast cancer reconstruction surgery. It is one of the common cosmetic procedures in the United States.

Most women can get breast augmentation as long as her overall mental and physical health is good. Body size or height can be a factor but usually is not. Dr. Feledy will discuss with you the best approach specifically for you, including the type and size of the breast implant.
3) Is silicone or saline breast implants better?
At Belmont Plastic Surgery, we offer women a choice between silicone and saline breast implants for their breast augmentation. Silicone breast implants are pre-filled with a cohesive silicone gel. Saline breast implants are inserted and filled with a saline (salt water) solution during surgery. There are moderate differences in the aesthetic outcome in either choice.
4) What are some of the risks associated with breast augmentation?
All surgical procedures present a degree of risk. Getting a Breast augmentation in Northern VA is considered safe. Complications are rare but may include bleeding, infection, and an adverse reaction to anesthesia, scarring or asymmetry.
5) During breast augmentation surgery
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia and takes between one and two hours. Dr. Feledy will make appropriate surgical incisions (below the breast, at the nipple, or underarm) before inserting the breast implant into the breast pocket, which is created either above or below the chest muscle. Once the implant has been centered below the nipple, the incisions will be closed with sutures and covered with an adhesive.
6) Recovering after breast augmentation surgery
Upon returning home following your breast augmentation, you will need to wear a special bra that will help you heal for the next two weeks. Most patients are able to return to work within a week of surgery. Strenuous activities or exercise should be avoided for up to six weeks. It’s perfectly normal to feel some pain during the recovery process. Ask Dr. Feledy about a pain medication prescription to help alleviate discomfort.

Why do women decide to get a breast augmentation procedure? Each woman has her own reason. She should have realistic expectations about the surgery and its impact in her life.
During the consultation process, Dr. Feledy will ask questions to determine what sort of breast augmentation candidate you are.
