What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed throughout the United States each year, likely due to its reliability and the number of options patients have when it comes to personalizing their results. Also called breast enhancement or enlargement, breast augmentation is a procedure performed to change the size and shape of the breasts by adding volume. Boosting their size can create anything from a modest to dramatic change, as well as improved projection, cleavage, and more.

Patients should understand that adding volume does not address sagging—and can, in fact, contribute to the problem by making breasts heavier and more likely to pull downward. A breast lift is more appropriate for correcting drooping breasts. Breast augmentation and lift can also be combined, with our plastic surgeons using techniques specially developed to boost volume while keeping the breasts in an elevated position on the chest.

What Are My Options for Breast Augmentation?

Breast Implants

Most breast augmentation procedures are performed with breast implants, which are silicone shells filled with material made to mimic fat and breast tissue. Breast implants come in different sizes and may be filled with saline or silicone, giving patients plenty of flexibility in the type of results they are able to achieve.

Implants may be filled with a smooth silicone gel, a more form-stable silicone that has a consistency similar to the inside of a gummy bear, or saline, which is sterile saltwater. The newest implants available as of 2021, Ideal implants, are filled with saline separated into compartments and made with other advanced techniques that give them a very natural look while maintaining the lowest rupture rate of any implant available.

Each type of implant has its own unique benefits, which you will discuss with your plastic surgeon during your consultation.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

At The Peer Group in New Jersey, we also offer fat transfer breast augmentation, which uses excess fat cells taken from other areas of the body to enhance the breasts. Fat is an ideal material to use for breast augmentation since it is made naturally by your body. However, it is important to understand that only modest volume increases are possible when using nothing more than your own fat. More commonly, fat can be used to refine the results of breast augmentation with implants. Our plastic surgeons often use fat cells to “soften” the edges of the implants and provide patients with especially natural-looking results.

How Can I Choose Which Breast Augmentation Approach Is Best for Me?

We understand that plastic surgery is a big decision. That’s why we’re with you every step of the way, helping you to understand what breast augmentation can and can’t do, what to expect right after the procedure, 10 years down the line, and beyond.

To help you get a better sense of how specific implants and techniques could impact your figure, we offer Vectra 3D imaging. This advanced technology takes detailed scans of a patient, creating a realistic virtual model that can be digitally enhanced to reveal how various sizes and shapes of implants would make their breasts look. The simulated results are not “promises”—because individual healing abilities and other unique factors and circumstances influence the ultimate results—but they are accurate and can give a reliable “preview” to anyone wondering how breast augmentation would change their appearance.

What Does the Breast Augmentation Procedure Involve?

Each patient’s unique breast augmentation surgery details will depend on the cosmetic goals and treatment plan developed during the personal consultation.

In general, every breast augmentation surgery starts in our private on-site AAAASF-certified operating room with a specialist administering anesthesia to keep you safe and comfortable throughout the procedure.

For breast augmentation with implants, your surgeon will make incisions along the inframammary fold, where the lower part of the breast meets the chest wall. Alternatively, an incision may be made around a portion of the areola. In either case, making the incision in these areas creates natural lines that camouflage visible scarring.

Next, the chosen implants are securely inserted into a carefully made pocket, and the incisions are closed.

With the fat transfer technique, fat is removed from an area of the body such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The fat is then purified and injected into the breasts to produce the desired results.

What is Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?

The recovery process after a breast augmentation surgery will depend on the specific approach chosen. In general, you can expect to experience some common post-surgical side effects for one to two weeks: swelling, bruising, and discomfort.

With this in mind, you can plan to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery. We also recommend that patients avoid any exercise or heavy lifting for at least six weeks after their procedure.

What Results Can I Expect from Breast Augmentation?

Your breasts will be visibly larger after your surgery, but keep in mind that initial swelling will make them look different from how they will ultimately appear long-term.

Breast augmentation does not stop time, gravity, and the realities of aging from happening, but both implants and fat transfer techniques provide results that last for many years. There is no set “time limit” on how long results will appear ideal to a particular patient, and many are quite happy with their enhanced bust for decades.

A healthy lifestyle, routine check-ups, and other maintenance strategies can help to ensure you enjoy your breast augmentation results far into the future. If sagging becomes a problem, your personal preferences change, you want to “update” your look again, or anything else happens to make you consider a new surgery for your appearance, we can work with you then, too.










How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

The exact cost of any procedure will vary depending on your individual cosmetic goals and the specific approach we take to enhance your breasts. Once we develop a customized treatment plan after our thorough consultation, we will be able to inform you of the breast augmentation cost. You can learn more about the cost of your procedure, as well as your payment options, by visiting our financing page.

What Other Breast Surgeries Are Available?

Beyond breast augmentation with implants and/or fat transfer, as well as breast lifts, The Peer Group offers numerous other breast surgery options so you can get the look you want to feel confident in your body today—and tomorrow. Virtually any breast procedure can be included in a Mommy Makeover, which is a combination of surgeries and treatments focused on creating “pre-baby” contours.

Breast reduction is intended for patients whose excessive breast volume is an impediment to comfort, health, and confidence—and male breast reduction helps men with gynecomastia to get a more traditionally masculine chest.

Patients who need to undergo a partial or complete mastectomy for breast cancer-related surgery can restore their figure with breast reconstruction.

Finally, for women who no longer want the results of prior breast augmentation, we perform breast implant removal. Implants of a different size or shape can then be inserted, or you can simply go back to life without enhancement. The choice—as always—is up to you!
