How long does breast enlargement take?

Operating lights

A breast augmentation is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthesia. The whole operation takes about one hour. But the recommendation is to stay for at least 4 hours afterwards. The recovery time is longer, so although the procedure itself is quick, you will need to make adjustments to your life for a longer period of time.
