Why Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery in the world. Why do so many women want breast implants? There is not necessary one primary reasons, but some of the reasons and treatments that breast augmentation may help address include:

  • Lack of confidence in their breasts/body
  • Dissatisfied or embarrassed by the natural changes that occurred after having children
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Small amount of natural breast tissue that can look disproportional to the rest of the body
  • “Deflated” breasts or loss of volume
  • Clothing and bras never fit well regardless of the size

Still, there are hundreds of reasons women seek breast augmentation surgery. The most popular way to augment the breasts is using breast implants. Made of silicone and filled either with saline or cohesive silicone gel, breast implants can provide a natural looking and feeling breast enlargement.

Types Of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Blyer can perform breast augmentation in several different ways. Though, he may recommend a particular technique depending on the implant the patient chooses, their anatomy, or if they are undergoing a combination breast surgery. Dr. B is highly skilled in the three major breast augmentation incision methods: the inframammary fold, periareolar, and transaxillary.

Inframammary Fold

The inframammary fold—the scientific name for the crease underneath the breast—is the traditional incision location for breast augmentation. It allows for easy access to all of the necessary tissues including the chest muscle. The incision is generally around four centimeters long.

The one downside to a breast crease incision is that the scars may become visible later on. While it is still extremely discreet and covered by most bras and bathing suits, this may not be the ideal option for women wanting to keep scarring off their breasts.

Pros:

  • ​Can accommodate any size implant
  • More precision
  • Can be reopened to remove or exchange implants in the future
  • Poses little risk to nipple sensation or the glands of the breast
  • Unlikely to affect breastfeeding

Cons:

  • Scar sometimes visible even after the breast implants drop
  • May complicate future surgery if the patient increases or decreases implant size
  • Not viable for small breasts with little to no defined crease

Periareolar

A periareolar incision uses a small incision that curves around one half of the areola to place the implant. While useful in some situations, going through the areola does not happen as frequently. Any future scar is covered when the breasts are and tend to blend in with the pigment change between the breasts and areola.

Depending a woman’s goals and preferences, this breast augmentation incision can have serious downsides. Since it is the closest to the nipple, it poses the highest risk of affecting nipple sensation or future breastfeeding ability.

Pros:

  • Scar generally heals well and is not too noticeable
  • Can be reused in the event of implant removal or exchange
  • Can avoid further incisions if undergoing a small (lollipop) breast lift

Cons:

  • May impact nipple sensation
  • Highest chance of disrupting the ability to breastfeed
  • May have a higher risk of capsular contracture and infection (both instances are still rare)
  • Possibility of visible scars on breast

Transaxillary

The transaxillary incision consists of an incision made within the deepest crease of the armpit. This method gained significant popularity in the last decade. Many patients are attracted to the stealth scar and distance from the nipple and breast glands. This obviously offers many pros for patients. 

The biggest aesthetic con is that it sometimes can be more difficult to achieve breast symmetry with this method. However, an experienced surgeon like Dr. B can usually work around this. Though sometimes a patient’s anatomy may simply not be conducive to an armpit incision.

Pros:

  • Keeps scarring far from breasts
  • Keloids and raised scars less common in the armpits
  • Poses almost no risk to future breastfeeding
  • Can use any type of breast implant

Cons:

  • Can only use the incision once
  • Some larger silicone implants may not fit through such a small incision (rare, but possible)
  • Breast symmetry sometimes more difficult to achieve

FAQs

Patients can take years to make the decision to undergo a Long Island breast augmentation. Even patients happy with their implants often have things they wish they knew going into surgery. Some tips include:

  • Understand what can and cannot be achieved: Plastic surgery and breast implants are amazing and can produce dramatic results. However, breast implants will not significantly lift the breasts and based on a woman’s existing breast tissue, each implant size will look different on her than it may on another patient. Go into the consultation and sizing with an open mind.
  • Your breasts will not be that high forever: When breast implants are placed under the muscle, the implants get compressed by the muscle. Therefore, they sit higher on the chest. Some patients become worried that this is their final result, but over the course of a few months, the implants will eventually drop into place and look more natural.
  • Clean your house before surgery: This may seem like an odd tip, but when you get home and feel groggy after surgery, would you rather come back to a clean and well prepared home or a messy and ill prepared home? Not only will this help your psyche after surgery, it prevents you from getting up or exerting too much.

All surgical procedures come with risks. However, breast augmentation comes with relatively few due to the small incision, short surgery time, and the “no-touch” implant placement technique. The typical surgical risks seen with all surgeries including infection, nerve damage, and fluid collection can all occur, but are rare.

There is no upper age limit for getting breast implants. As long as a patient is healthy, a good candidate, and can give consent, they can undergo the surgery. However, patients must be at least 18 for saline breast implants and 22 for silicone breast implants.

The breast augmentation cost Long Island depends on several factors including choice of breast implant and the technicality of the surgery. Breast augmentation with Dr. B Fixin starts at $8,500 for silicone breast implants.
