Get Summer-Ready with Breast Augmentation in Garden City, New York

As the days get longer and the temperature heats up, you will likely be at the beach much more. If you’re looking for an extra boost in confidence while spending time by the water, breast augmentation can be the perfect solution. And with his decades of experience, Dr. Deane can give you the beautiful results you’re looking for. But what exactly is breast augmentation? Let’s take a look at this life-changing procedure.

What is Breast Augmentation?

So, what does breast augmentation involve? This cosmetic procedure includes the use of silicone or saline implants or fat transfer to enhance the shape and size of your breasts and give you the curves you always wanted. If you feel like your breasts are too small or have lost volume as you’ve aged, breast augmentation may be exactly what you’ve been searching for.

Is Breast Augmentation Right For You?

Most patients who come in looking for breast augmentation are good candidates for the procedure. That said, some of the criteria we look for include:

  • Patients in good overall health
  • Nonsmokers
  • Have realistic expectations
  • No medical conditions that could affect the healing process
  • Looking to enhance your curves

What to Expect From the Breast Augmentation Procedure

To start off your breast augmentation procedure, we’ll administer general anesthesia to ensure you’re completely comfortable. From there, Dr. Deane will make an incision and then place the implant under or on top of the pectoral muscle.

There are three main types of implants or methods to choose from: saline implants, silicone implants, and fat transfer. Saline and silicone implants are the more common methods of the three and provide the most predictable results. Fat transfer provides more subtle results and allows you to take unwanted fat from another area of the body and move it to your breasts.

The implants used in your procedure will depend on your goals, your current state, and what Dr. Deane recommends. Dr. Deane will help you choose the right implants for you during your consultation.

Getting Back to Your Regular Summertime Activities

One of the key concerns about any surgery is the recovery phase. Breast augmentation recovery can take 6 to 8 weeks, depending on the individual. You will likely experience some bruising, discomfort, and swelling, but these side effects will subside on their own as you heal.

During your recovery, you’ll want to rest as much as possible, wear your compression garment to ease swelling and aid in the healing process, and limit any strenuous activity.

If you start your summer-ready journey now, you’ll still have plenty of time to hit the beaches this summer.
