A Better Breast Augmentation Procedure
For over 9 years, Dr. Caruth has provided AWAKE Breast Augmentation in his surgery center. This procedure provides a great option for women wanting saline, silicone, or “gummy” implants without the need for general anesthesia.
Dr. Caruth performs the augmentation under local anesthesia which allows the patient to participate in selection of implant size. Some patients desire a mild sedative prior to procedure for anxiety. Patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure.
During the procedure, the patient is allowed to view the breasts after placement of a temporary sizer. The sizers can be inflated or deflated as needed. Dr. Caruth will guide the patient regarding appropriate fit and have the ultimate decision based on several factors.
Patients may return home soon after the procedure to rest for several days. Certain activities will be restricted for about 4-6 weeks. Most patients can return to work in 3-5 days. Individual results may vary.
