Breast Augmentation in NYC Increases Breast Size and Enhances Curves

POSTED ON TUESDAY, MAY 07, 2013 AT 5:34 PM  by Dr. Elie Levine

Prepare your curves before summer arrives with breast augmentation in NYC! Increase your breast size, balance unevenly sized breasts, and enhance your feminine shape in time to fill out your summer wardrobe! Keeping up with the latest advancements in plastic surgery, Dr. Elie Levine offers several options for women looking to enhance their curves. These options include silicone, saline, and the 410 gummy implants. Understanding the differences between each will better assist you when it comes to determining which will suit your individual needs, desires, and body type.

Silicone implants: Filled with silicone gel, silicone implants are often preferred over saline implants for their natural feel. Silicone is close in texture to the actual breast tissue, causing them to move and feel more natural following breast enhancement.

Saline implants: Consisting of a silicone elastomer shell, saline implants are filled with sterile saline. This solution is similar to the fluids found naturally in the human body.

410 gummy implants: An advanced revelation in breast augmentation, the 410 gummy implant was recently FDA approved. The 410 gummy implant are made of highly cohesive silicone gel. They are praised for their natural and anatomical look.  

During your initial consultation, New York Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Elie Levine, will help you determine:

  • What size implant you should receive
  • Where to position the implant
  • What type of breast implant you should choose
  • Where to make incisions to minimize scarring

Unlike traditional plastic surgeons in NY, Dr. Elie Levine is highly experienced with all four incision options when it comes to inserting the implant. Placement of incisions during your breast augmentation will be determined based on your individual desires and anatomy. These placements include:

Inframmary: incision is made within the fold or under the crease of the breast. One of the most commonly used approaches; the inframmary incision offers the best visibility for placement of the implant.

Periareolar: incision is made around the nipple, usually along the lower half or inner edge. The pigment of the nipple helps conceal the scar.

Transaxillary: incision is made in the armpit area. Dr. Levine will guide the implant to the breast pocket using a probe usually equipped with a mini-fiber optic camera.

Transumbilical: incision is made through the belly button. Special equipment is used to help Dr. Levine tunnel under the skin and to the breast area. Placing the implants for optimal results can be challenging and relatively few surgeons use this approach. 

At Plastic Surgery & Dermatology of NYC, we look forward to helping you look your best in time for summer’s sexy styles.
