Breast Augmentation NYC

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, involves placing saline or silicone implants to improve the size, volume and shape of naturally small breasts or breasts that have become deflated as a result of aging, pregnancy or weight loss. Breast implants can also be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy. Regardless of your reasons for pursuing breast augmentation, natural-looking and beautiful results require the technical expertise and artistry of a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Shinji Lee.

What to Expect During Your Consultation

The first step towards fuller and more beautiful breasts is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Lee. During your initial meeting, Dr. Lee will evaluate your medical history, as well as examine and measure your breasts. She will also ask you to describe your concerns about your breasts and the results you wish to achieve. It is very important for you to be transparent about your aesthetic concerns and goals with Lee, so she can determine the best treatment plan. You will also have the opportunity to “try on” saline and silicone implants, so you can feel the differences between the two.

Breast Augmentation Candidates

Ideal candidates for breast augmentation are women who are bothered by small, deflated or asymmetrical breasts. If you are also concerned about noticeable breast sag (ptosis), you may benefit from breast augmentation with lift. Breast lift raises the breast mound to a higher position on the chest wall for a perkier and younger-looking appearance. Dr. Lee will help you navigate all of your breast enhancement options in depth so you can make the best choice.

Procedure Details

Breast augmentation is performed at Dr. Lee’s Manhattan office, in a fully accredited onsite operating room under anesthesia, which is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist.

Dr. Lee will place the breast implants through incisions made on the breast, under the natural breast crease or in the armpit area. The pros and cons of each incision location will be discussed in detail during your pre-operative consultation with Dr. Lee.

Once Dr. Lee has finished placing the implants and making all of the agreed-upon modifications, she will close the incisions using sutures, dress the treatment area with soft bandages and place a surgical bra to protect the breasts while they heal.
