Breast augmentation surgery, also called breast enlargement, is a procedure performed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Many patients choose to pursue the breast augmentation procedure in order to enhance their figure and improve their self-confidence. Breast augmentation is among the most popular plastic surgery procedures, likely due to the number of options patients have when considering treatment. There are many different approaches to the breast augmentation surgery, allowing patients to achieve personalized care and fulfill their cosmetic goals.
Breast Augmentation in New Jersey
Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed breast enhancement procedures, and one we are proud to offer at The Peer Group for Plastic Surgery. We welcome patients from Livingston and Morristown, NJ.
What are My Options for Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is traditionally performed with breast implants. Breast implants come in different materials and sizes, giving patients a lot of flexibility in the type of results they are able to achieve. The most common type of implants are saline, which are filled with a sterile saline solution, and silicone, which are filled with a smooth silicone gel. Each type of implant has its own pros and cons, which will be discussed with you during your consultation.
We also offer breast augmentation with the fat transfer technique, which uses unwanted fat from other areas of the body to enhance the breasts. To explore the results that are possible with this technique, please refer to our breast augmentation fat transfer before and after pictures.
What is the Breast Augmentation Procedure Like?
The breast augmentation procedure will vary depending on your treatment goals and the treatment plan we develop during your consultation. These treatments will begin with delivering anesthesia, ensuring you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. For breast augmentation with implants, incisions will be made in the breasts, typically around the nipple to reduce visible scarring. Implants are then securely inserted and the incisions are closed. With the fat transfer technique, fat is removed from an area of the body such as the abdomen, hips thighs. The fat is then purified and injected into the breasts to produce the desired results.
What is the Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?
The recovery process for breast augmentation will vary depending on the treatment method used. Most patients experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for a few weeks after their treatment. You may need to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery. We also recommend patients abstain from any exercise or heavy lifting for at least six weeks after treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from Breast Augmentation?
The results from breast augmentation are designed to be long-lasting. While you may experience some swelling following treatment, the results should be noticeable shortly after your procedure. Both implants and fat transfer techniques provide results that last for many years.
