About Breast Augmentation

Cosmetic breast surgery is a procedure that resizes the breasts to create a fuller look. It is often considered to be one of the most desired cosmetic surgeries, offering women who dislike their breast many opportunities for improvement. With the help of implants or a fat transfer, this procedure improves breast shape, size, and symmetry, and creates an attractive and natural-looking outcome. Plastic surgeons Drs. James Romanelli, David Pincus, and John Layliev are skilled in implementing this surgery and perform countless breast augmentations each year. When you have your consultation at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Huntington, NY on Long Island, we will listen to your aesthetic desires and concerns and educate you on all of the choices available, while also creating a treatment plan to reach your personal goals.

Ideal Candidates

The decision to have breast enlargement surgery is a personal one for women. Women who have small breasts or breasts that have changed shape and size following pregnancy or weight loss are ideal candidates.

About Breast Implants

During your consultation, the appropriate implant will be recommended based on your body size and shape, as well as the results you hope to attain. Both types of breast implants, silicone and saline implants are widely popular and equally safe and approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Implants are made in different shapes, sizes, profiles, and textures — each of which is considered carefully in order to attain your desired look.
Breast implant size is determined based on the cubic centimeters (CCs) of saline or silicone used. To understand the appropriate volume, we will look at how much native breast tissue exists and the size you desire to be. We use the VECTRA3D Breast Imaging Simulator (Canfield Imaging Systems) to show you what various size implants can look like on your body.

We understand all of the considerations may appear overwhelming. Selecting an appropriate implant size is easier once goals are understood during the consultation. These considerations, combined with the expertise and training of our surgical team, help attain beautiful, natural-looking outcomes.

Surgical Technique

Incision placement, as well as implant location, are decisions that are made before surgery. During breast augmentation, the chosen incision is created and then the implant will be placed into its position. There are various  techniques that may be used for implant placement. These  include underneath the pectoral muscle, over the pectoralis muscle and behind your native breast tissue, and lastly under a layer of fascia just over your muscle. The choice as to where to insert the breast implant incision is based on varying factors. This involves the quality and thickness of your native breast tissue and skin, your implant size, activity level, and body type. Regardless of incision location, scarring is hidden within a natural breast crease.

What to Expect

Breast enhancement surgery is an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. Once the incision is made, the appropriate implant will be inserted through the incision opening and deposited into a pocket created for it, and then secured into its correct position. After this process, the incision is carefully secured with skin adhesives or sutures. Each patient will be taken into recovery and carefully monitored and screened prior to being released. You will be instructed to continue wearing a compression garment to help reduce swelling. Several days after surgery, the swelling and bruising will begin to decrease, and the breasts will start to look and feel normal as they settle into their new position. While individual results vary, most patients can return to everyday activities within the first week. Breast enhancement surgery creates gorgeous outcomes that feel and appear natural. This procedure often times can be a life changer for many patients, offering them the opportunity to feel more self-assured.
