Full recovery typically takes several weeks, but most patients can return to work after the first week. It is important to follow all of Dr. Alexander’s instructions and avoid strenuous activity to ensure a smooth recovery process and optimal results.


Dr. Alexander uses the most advanced techniques of plastic surgery to minimize scarring. As with any surgery, there is a risk of visible scarring; however, both periareolar and inframammary scars are relatively inconspicuous with normal healing and tend to fade over time.


Over 20 years of experience and multiple board certifications make Dr. Alexander uniquely qualified to perform your surgery. Over the years, he has performed thousands of breast augmentation surgeries. Just like fingerprints, no two breasts are the same. Dr. Alexander creates results based on each patient’s unique needs and goals. He has enhanced a variety of different breast sizes and shapes, and patients appreciate the value of this experience.

The cost of breast augmentation depends greatly on the techniques used, anesthesia fees, surgical facility fees, and implant choice. Dr. Alexander’s staff will be able to provide you with an exact amount following your breast augmentation consultation.


Patients experience less discomfort with long-lasting medication that Dr. Alexander administers during surgery. Typically, initial discomfort lasts 48 hours and gradually decreases each day. Post-surgery pain can be managed with oral medication. Dr. Alexander will recommend the pain management medicine that is best suited for you.


  • Do I have to quit smoking before undergoing breast augmentation?

    Smoking disrupts the healing process and can lead to post-op complications. You should not smoke for at least two weeks before breast augmentation surgery and four weeks after surgery to heal as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  • How long does breast augmentation surgery take?

    The procedure usually takes one to two hours.

  • Is breast augmentation permanent?

    Breast augmentation results are long lasting, but many patients require some adjustment after a few years. Pregnancy, aging, weight gain, and personal habits can affect the look of your breasts over time, so you may eventually want further enhancement.

  • Will breast augmentation lift my breasts?

    If you have minimal sagging of the breast tissue, breast augmentation may help lift them; however, if you have significant sagging, you may be advised to combine your breast augmentation with a breast lift.

  • Should I get submuscular or subglandular implant placement?

    Placement of breast implants is individualized for each patient based on their breast anatomy and Dr. Alexander’s extensive experience.
