The breasts come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but not all are ideal. Have you caught yourself staring in the mirror wishing you had larger breasts? Are you tired of spending money on push-up bras and gimmicks that guarantee the appearance of larger, fuller breasts? Perhaps it’s time to consider breast augmentation. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery in Long Island, NY specialize in breast augmentation and can provide you with larger, perkier breasts and the ample cleavage that you’ve always wanted.
So, what is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a procedure that resizes the breasts by inserting saline or silicone implants, in most cases, under the chest muscle. The final outcome is larger, natural looking, shapelier breasts. There are many sizes, types, and shapes of implants to choose from and our surgeons will work with you to determine which exact implant is ideal for your body type and frame, as well as your overall aesthetic goals so the desired outcome can be attained.
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular and most common cosmetic surgeries offered today. In fact, thousands of women have this procedure done and love their results. Here are a few of the most common reasons why.
Top 8 reasons why Long Island, NY women undergo breast augmentation:
Breasts are a sign of femininity. Small-chested women long for larger, fuller breasts. Whether you have very limited native breast tissue and just want to look and feel normal, or you want to go larger overall, breast augmentation can allow a woman to have the chest they never thought was possible. Silicone or saline implants can take you from an A cup to a C cup, or from a C cup to an even larger size. We customize each breast augmentation surgery based on what our patients want and what makes the most sense for their body and frame.
Many tops and dresses are designed to accentuate a woman’s chest. Swimsuits are a prime example of garments that draw attention to cleavage. Breast augmentation can finally allow you to wear the deep V-necks and bikini tops that you’ve been missing out on for all these years. Choosing the right shape and profile helps when trying to attain the right cleavage. Discuss this aspect during your consultation so the right implant can be chosen.
Weight loss is typically a good thing, depending on where you lose the weight. However, in many cases, weight loss can cause the breasts to decrease in size and shape, which can then leave them deflated. As long as you have healthy skin tone and do not have breast sag present from the weight loss, breast implants can add life back to your breasts so that they can compliment your new silhouette. With breast augmentation surgery, not only will you feel great about fitting into your smaller jeans, but now you can enjoy various tops to really accentuate your new look.
You may have noticed during a bra fitting that your breasts are two different sizes. This is actually quite common. The difference in some women’s breasts can be an entire cup size or more! Breast augmentation can help even up the breasts and make their appearance more symmetrical. You’ll no longer need to add padding to one side of your bra or be self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts. Your surgeon will assess both breasts and develop an augmentation strategy that will create an even, natural, and proportionate look.
Breast augmentation may be a great option if you are one of many flat-chested women that have been struggling with insecurity issues. Filling out your swimsuit or a low-cut top can definitely do wonders for your self-esteem. Having a fuller, shapelier chest can make a woman feel more confident, secure, and sexy. You don’t have to go big to get that boost of confidence back. We’ll help you get there!
Desire to look younger
Gravity and aging can take a toll on a woman’s breasts. Breasts can become deflated and saggy over time. A breast augmentation gives breasts a makeover and improves their overall appearance by making them appear fuller and perkier.
Many Long Island women view breast augmentation as a gift to themselves after having a baby. The rapid weight gain and loss during and after pregnancy can cause the breasts to shrink and lose the perky look they once had. Add breastfeeding in and now you have smaller breasts that simply need a little help to regain their shape. So many Long Island moms come to us once they have completed childbearing to regain their pre-pregnancy breasts!
Reconstruction after mastectomy
Many women who are fighting breast cancer elect to have their breasts removed as a precaution or sometimes out of necessity. As if battling breast cancer isn’t enough, now these women are dealing with the stress of having to lose their breasts. Breast augmentation after a mastectomy can make a huge impact on a woman. It’s an excellent way to rebuild your breasts along with your self-esteem and self-worth.
What are my options?
Your surgeon will discuss whether a saline or silicone implant is a better fit for you. They’ll also go over implant placement and the incision and work with you to determine all of your options. They will also take into consideration your body type, desired breast size, and activity level so the right size and implant can be selected.
Breast augmentation is a same-day outpatient surgery performed under general anesthesia. Once patients are sedated an incision is created and then the implant is inserted. After this has been completed, and the implant is in the correct location, the incision is closed. There will be some initial swelling following the procedure, but most patients are back to doing their everyday activities within a week. Once the swelling and bruising have worn off you’re left with beautiful, fuller, symmetrical breasts.
