Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
Most healthy women who are non-smokers are good candidates for breast augmentation surgery. If you are currently a smoker and you want to get breast implants, Dr. Fugo will advise you long before the procedure that you need to quit nicotine; smoking and nicotine dramatically impact healing, recovery, and longevity of your result.
You may be a candidate for breast augmentation if you have the following concerns:
- You feel your breasts are too small
- Your breasts are uneven
- You are not satisfied with the shape of your breasts (a common complaint over time among mothers and women who have lost significant weight)
- You have lost volume in your breasts
- You experienced developmental or congenital abnormalities resulting in malformation of the breasts

How is Breast Augmentation Surgery Performed?
Breast enlargement surgery consists of placing a breast implant below the skin and pectoralis major muscle to enhance the shape, volume, and position of the breast. The goal is to provide enhancement to the breasts while retaining a natural appearance.
Saline and silicone implants are both excellent options for breast augmentation. Dr. Fugo will work closely with you to find the right implant based on your cosmetic goals and physical characteristics. He will also discuss important matters such as:
- Implant sizing and shape
- Where the incision is made during surgery
- The rationale for placement of the implant below the muscle
Dr. Fugo will also fully review how he will perform your breast augmentation, as well as what to expect from the results and recovery.
What Should I Expect After Breast Augmentation?
The breast augmentation surgery takes approximately 90 minutes on average. You will be able to return home the same day as the procedure following a brief period of observation.
Be sure to arrange a ride to and from the surgery center. You should also have a trusted individual stay with you at home for a few days should you need assistance.
You will be provided with medications, a support bra and more. Dr. Fugo will provide you with detailed instructions on downtime and postsurgical care. By following these directions, you should enjoy the full benefits of Dr. Fugo’s quick recovery breast augmentation protocol!
Most patients return to work in just 4 days!
How Long After Breast Augmentation Can I Exercise?
Dr. Fugo allows his patient to return to the gym just 10 days following breast augmentation. Some fitness routines, such as ones that require heavy lifting or tax the chest muscles, are discouraged for up to 6 weeks.
Dr. Fugo takes a different approach that drastically reduces the timeline for resuming regular exercise. With our quick recovery breast augmentation, you may be able to head back to the gym in as little as 10 days!
The difference in numbers is all about planning for your postoperative care. Dr. Fugo performs the procedure not only with your safety and optimal results in mind, but your functional recovery as well. He considers how the placement of the implant affects your everyday activities, including exercise.
How Painful Is Breast Augmentation Recovery?
With Dr. Fugo’s proven approach to breast augmentation surgery, you can return to work in 4 days and begin exercising at the gym again in 10 days. Prior to these milestones, you will want to rest and relax as much as possible.
Fatigue immediately following any surgery is normal. You may also feel groggy as a result of the anesthesia. Swelling will last for several weeks after surgery, and you may experience tightness in the chest as the surgical site heals.
Dr. Fugo will provide you with detailed instructions on what to expect during recovery, and he will prescribe all necessary medications for your post-op needs. He designs your post-procedure around a “functional recovery” philosophy that is engineered to be faster and more comfortable than what other surgeons typically achieve with the procedure.
"Finally it was the surgery day. Everything went smoothly. I was amazed how minimal of pain I had unlike a lot of people online have said otherwise. I had absolutely no bruises. Just amazing. Two days after the surgery I went for a long walk with my parents. I felt like I could even go back to the gym!!
Six weeks post surgery, I am so pleased with the result and I know my breasts will look even better as time goes. I am so excited to live my life with more confidence and self-esteem. I don't hesitate to recommend Dr. Fugo to anyone I meet."
How Long Do Breast Implants Last?
Mentor Breast implants (the only brand used by Dr. Fugo) are warrantied for your entire life. Breast augmentation surgery done once and done correctly should not need to be done again at any point unless there arises something about your breasts that you desire to change. Proactively changing implants is never something that Dr. Fugo recommends for any patient that has undergone breast augmentation in recent years.
A thorough, personalized surgery plan is one of the best ways to prolong your implants on the very day they are inserted. Dr. Fugo will determine optimal placement of the implant, ideal incision location, and the steps necessary to keep handling of the implant to a minimum.
After augmentation surgery, Dr. Fugo will also provide you with personalized instructions for recovery. Following these directions to the letter increases the likelihood of a superior long-term outcome and reduces the incidence of complications (such as deflation, capsular contracture, etc.).
Do Breast Implants Sag Over Time?
Breast augmentation surgery is intended to restore size, shape, and volume. If you want to reverse sagging of your breasts, a breast lift may be necessary instead of or in addition to breast augmentation.
With this in mind, your breasts may still sag in spite of getting breast implants. This is due to factors such as:
- Fluctuations in weight
- Genetic traits
If you opted for a significant increase in cup size for your breast augmentation, the implants may result in more pronounced sagging as well. As you get older and your body changes, you may need revision surgery or additional procedures to correct issues like sagging breasts.

Unlike other breast implant surgeons, Dr. Fugo does not believe that the decision to proceed with surgery should be a hasty one.
“It’s never about ‘making the sale’ or ‘closing the deal’. It’s about providing patients with the unbiased information that they need to make the best decision for themselves.”
Dr. Fugo recommends that patients take the time to “process and digest” all of the information provided during the consultation.
