Breast Augmentation in Long Island

One of the most frequently requested plastic surgeries is breast augmentation. Long Island patients who desire to enhance the appearance of their breasts by increasing the breast size can turn to Dr. Arnold Breitbart, a leading cosmetic surgeon with over twenty years of experience. Improvements in plastic surgery techniques have resulted in a procedure that offers realistic outcomes safely. Ideal candidates are healthy and eighteen years of age and older for breast enlargement.
Long Island patients who are thirty-five years old and older are requested to have a mammogram to check for abnormalities. Prior to surgery for breast enlargement, Long Island patients should consult with Dr. Breitbart about their plans for breastfeeding and having children to make any necessary special considerations.

Breast Enlargement in Long Island

There are two kinds of implants used for breast augmentation. Long Island patients can choose from silicone or saline implants. Saline implants contain saline solution and are inserted through incisions without saline. They are filled with the saline solution after. Silicone implants on the other hand, are already filled implants, forming naturally to the adjacent tissues. Depending upon the sites chosen for incision and the size and type of implant chosen, results will vary for breast augmentation. Long Island patients of Dr. Breitbart discuss options with the doctor prior to surgery in a consultation.

During surgery for breast augmentation, Long Island patients receive general anesthesia in most cases. Dr. Breitbart creates an incision and a pocket where the implant is inserted and then repositioned either above or below the muscle during surgery for breast augmentation. Long Island patients receive incisions either by the areola region, under the breast fold, or the armpit.
Absorbable sutures are used for breast enlargement. Long Island patients may require a temporary drain to remove fluids, that is taken out after a period of forty-eight hours. After surgery, patients wear a special bra for a period up to six weeks. Full recovery takes about eight weeks for surgery for breast augmentation. Long Island patients are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activity during this healing period. Patients experience dramatic improvement in their breast appearance after surgery for breast enlargement. Long Island patients who continue to stay in good shape and eat healthy, can experience long lasting results and are advised to check in regularly with the doctor every three to four years to ensure that implants are functioning properly.
