What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast Augmentation at KH Plastic Surgery in New York City, is a personalized journey towards enhancing the shape, size, and symmetry of your breasts. This procedure involves the skillful placement of FDA-approved implants to create a more balanced and harmonious silhouette that aligns with your unique aesthetic goals.

Whether you seek a subtle enhancement to improve breast asymmetry or breast sagging, or you’re looking for a more pronounced transformation with larger breasts, Dr. Hoschander’s expertise ensures a customized approach that empowers you to embrace your body with newfound confidence.

Types of Breast Enhancement

Breast enhancement can be achieved through various methods, each tailored to an individual’s unique goals and body characteristics. Two of the most common methods include breast augmentation with implants or fat transfer. Dr. Hoschander will discuss the benefits of our breast procedures and help you determine which is best for you.

  • Saline Breast Implants – Saline implants are filled with a sterile saline solution, very similar to the saltwater that’s in the human body. Unlike silicone implants, saline implants can either be pre-filled or filled during the implant operation.
  • Silicone Gel Breast Implants – Silicone breast implants are composed of an outer silicone shell filled with silicone gel that feels like jelly.
  • Gummy Bear Implants – Also known as Cohesive Gel Implants, “Gummy Bear” implants are a term used for a type of silicone breast implant known as “form-stable” or “highly cohesive” implants. These implants are made of a thicker, more cohesive silicone gel that retains its shape even if the silicone outer shell is cut or ruptured.
  • Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation – Fat transfer breast augmentation, also known as autologous fat transfer or natural breast augmentation, is a surgical procedure that involves using a person’s fat cells to enhance the size and shape of the breasts.
  • Smooth Implants – Smooth-walled silicone and saline breast implants are the most common choice for breast augmentations. Great for round implants, these are made of silicone gel or saline implants and have a smooth outer surface, creating a natural look and feel of natural breast tissue with a lower risk of rippling.
  • Textured Implants – Textured breast implants have a surface that helps them adhere to the surrounding breast tissue, making them less likely to move around inside the breast pocket and giving them a more natural look and feel.

Types of Implant Incisions

Depending on the woman’s breasts, the degree of change, and the patient’s body type, your surgeon will need to make incisions that are not only as discreet as possible but will also allow him to successfully perform breast enhancement procedures.

The most common types of incisions for cosmetic breast surgery include:

  • Inframammary incision: under the breast
  • Periareolar incision: around the areola (the area around the nipple)
  • Transaxillary incision: under the armpit
