After meeting with Dr. Nikko a Patient Coordinator will review pricing details and financing options with you, and you will select a date for your procedure.Pre-Op
Two weeks before your procedure, Dr. Nikko will meet with you to go over details and explain what to expect before, during, and after surgery. It is the appointment in preparation for your surgery day. You will have the opportunity to ask any lingering questions you have and discuss your final goals.Surgery
Breast Augmentations are performed at the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston, Texas. All breast augmentations are outpatient procedures performed under general anesthesia. You will be closely monitored as you wake up from the surgery, and released as soon as you are approved by the doctor.Post-Op
Nikko requests to see all patients 24 hours after their procedure to ensure that they are healing properly. Bandages will be removed and incision sites will be cleaned. One week after surgery any sutures or taping will be removed to avoid any visible scarring. Post-op appointments will continue being scheduled according to each person’s recovery progress and needs.Recovery
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure. You will be initially monitored before being released. Soreness and swelling will be most pronounced during the first 24-48 hours and will subside after a few weeks. You can read more about the breast augmentation process here.
