Breast Augmentation in NYC
New York Breast AugmentationBreast shape and size can be augmented with breast implants, fat, or the combination of the two. Most commonly is breast implants. Breast implants are the most studied devices that go inside a human by the FDA and are very safe. They come in two main types saline and silicone. Virtually all of the breast augmentation patients in New York, Manhattan, Connecticut, Long Island, and New Jersey receive silicone gel breast implants. Silicone gel breast implants are the most natural when it comes to look and feel.
Breast Augmentation with ImplantsMajority of patients will choose smooth round silicone gel implants otherwise known as “gummy bear implants”. These implants look and feel more natural compared to saline implants. They are durable and give the most aesthetically pleasing appearance and feel.
How Do I We Choose Implant Size?During our consultation we will want to hear your story about how you arrived at your empowering decision to make a change. Understanding your wishes, desires, and expectations will help us frame what is appropriate and safe to help you reach your goals. In general breast implant sizing starts with measuring the width of your breast in order to decide the width of the implant. As we go up in profile of the implant you will get more upper pole fullness or pronounced appearance of your implants.
How long do the implants last?
It is important to know that most patients who get breast implants will likely need another procedure at some point. This is because their bodies will change in time. Pregnancy, breast feeding, weight changes, and lifestyle choices will determine the next procedure. It is not necessary to simply change the implants every 10 years. It is very common for patients several decades after having implants choose to downsize or even remove their implants and add a breast lift.
Where will my incisions be?
Most incisions will be through a small incision in the breast fold or coupled with a breast lift incision. This is our preferred incision because it reduces visible scarring on the areola and armpit and allows for the most surgical accuracy and precision. Not having to go through the breast itself which is what happens with an areola incision reduces loss of nipple sensation and breasts getting hard or “capsular contracture”. Incisions in the fold fade and are hidden. All sutures are dissolvable. We ask people to place bacitracin on the incision twice a day for two weeks to support the breast augmentation healing than use skinuva scar cream to help the incision fade.
Do breast implants go above or below the muscle?
At Neinstein Plastic Surgery we prefer to go below the muscle for breast augmentation in the majority of cases. We find it gives a more natural result and is better for breast imaging and lowering the chance the breasts get hard or “capsular contracture”.
Breast Augmentation with Fat
Hybrid Breast Augmentation Surgery
Many women would prefer a natural route to enhance size and shape of the breast. We used a closed collection purification process whereby the fat is collected purified and re-injected to enhance its ability to survive. We find fat grafting the breast is good for half a cup worth of size change. This process can be repeated if desired and can be combined with implants for patients who prefer a small implant but would like some extra custom cleavage. About 60-70% of the fat should survive but if you lose a lot of weight quickly or exercise enough to be a high metabolizer you could potentially lose more fat.
