Hello, the breast augmentation surgery is usually one hour long, under general anesthesia. If you have any further questions or inquiries please visit my website at Good luck!

Breast augmentation is a relatively simple surgery and mine take 45 minutes. Good luck - there is a very high patient satisfaction with this procedure!

It really depends on your surgeon because like anything speed varies widely. It also depends on how complicated your case is.

However, the operation can usually be completed in about 1 to 2 hours including anesthesia, prep-time and recovery.
Approximately 2 hours. If there are circumstances that are complicating the procedure, it could be 3-4 hours.

Breast augmentation surgery usually takes a little more than 1 hour. We commonly do this in our office surgery OR -- you spend about a morning with us and then go home to relax and recover. Back to work in a few days with minimal pain.

Thanks for your question. This type of surgery usually takes him under an hour and a half. The recovery is about one week.
Depending on the technique, about 1-1 1/2 hours.
