For patients in the Long Island, NY area, breast augmentation surgery is a personalized procedure that adds volumes to breasts. At North Shore Cosmetic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. James Romanelli and Dr. John Layliev are highly-skilled at performing custom breast surgeries that address their patients’ needs. During a breast augmentation consultation, we will listen to your concerns and explain the surgery process ahead. We also will help you choose breast implant type, size, shape, and breast implant incision. Our goal is to help every patient achieve their dream look.
What happens during a breast implant consultation?
During your consultation at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Romanelli or Dr. Layliev will recommend the best implant based on your body size and shape, and your aesthetic goals. Both types of breast implants, silicone and saline, are equally safe and are both approved by the Food and Drug Administration. These implants are made in different shapes, sizes, and even textures.
Breast implant sizes are determined by cubic centimeters or ccs. To understand the best volume, we look at how much breast tissue you have and the size you want to be. Selecting the appropriate size implant is easier once we understand your goals for your breast augmentation surgery. There are two different breast implant shape options – round or teardrop. A round implant looks more natural than a teardrop shape.
Many of our patients ask about the safety of implants at their consultation. While all medical devices have some type of complications risk, we believe they are a safe option for most patients throughout Long Island, NY.
Benefits of breast augmentation surgery
There are many benefits to having breast augmentation surgery, including:
1. Increase size: Breast augmentation increases the size of your breasts and can help improve your self-confidence.
2. Make breasts more symmetrical: Many women have asymmetry, and this uneven size can be noticeable.
3. Correct post-pregnancy breasts: Breast augmentation is commonly used during a mommy makeover. It can restore the body’s appearance after a patient is pregnant and/or has breastfed.
4. Improve breast appearance after weight loss: Weight loss can lead to excess skin pockets around the breasts, as well as sagging skin. Many women who have lost weight choose to have a breast augmentation to achieve fuller and more symmetrical breasts. Sometimes, a breast lift is performed with this procedure for the best result.
