Breast implant surgery
in the NYC tri-state area

Breast implants have become increasingly popular among women in the NYC tri-state area in recent years, as women have realized that they have more options available than ever before to enhance their figure with natural-looking results. Breast augmentation surgery performed by Dr. Kwan, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, can not only increase the size of your breasts but also modify the shape and overall proportions of your breasts to help you truly achieve the figure you want. Whether your breasts are smaller than you’d like due to genetics or your breasts have changed shape over time due to pregnancy, weight loss, or the aging process, a breast augmentation can help you feel more attractive and boost your self-confidence.

Benefits of breast augmentation

The benefits of breast implants go beyond just looking better in a swimsuit. Women who undergo the procedure can:

  • Feel more comfortable in their own body, especially when they are naked
  • Have enhanced confidence when being intimate with their partner
  • Fit more easily into clothing due to a more proportional body shape
  • Feel better and more confident when wearing a swimsuit, lingerie, or tight-fitting clothing

Dr. Kwan Talk About Breast Augmentation

The consultation and 3D imaging process

The first step in a breast augmentation is your personalized consultation with Dr. Kwan. First, he takes the time to discuss what you would like to change about your breast shape, size, and position so that he can provide the results you want. He will also discuss your medical history with you to ensure that you are a good candidate for breast implants. With over 22 years of experience, Dr. Kwan has an innate sense of judgment when it comes to what will look natural and aesthetically pleasing for each unique woman – what will work for one person is not necessarily what will be best for another.

After getting a firm understanding of your goals from the procedure, Dr. Kwan will use advanced 3D imaging technology to take pictures of your figure, and then use computer software to show you what your results will look like in advance. This imaging and pre-planning process allows Dr. Kwan to fine-tune your augmentation, so you truly get the results you desire and enables you to leave your consultation feeling confident in your choice to move forward with the procedure.

Even if you are just considering a breast augmentation, Dr. Kwan is happy to sit down and discuss your options with you to help determine what would be most appropriate for your specific body shape and size.

Types of implants

One of the key decisions in breast augmentation surgery is which type of implant will be used. A variety of implant types that have various shapes, textures, and materials are available, as well as different procedures for placing them, and Dr. Kwan will discuss all these options with you at length, answering any questions that you have.

  • Silicone: These implants are made from a shell that contains a silicone gel, which has a feeling that is similar to your natural breast. If the silicone implant tears or leaks, the gel may stay inside the shell, or it may leak into your breast; however, the implant will not fully collapse. Silicone implants have been approved by the FDA for augmentation in females who are 22 years or older.
  • Saline: These implants are made from a shell that contains a sterile saltwater solution. If the shell becomes torn or leaks, the implant collapses and the saline naturally is absorbed by the body. Saline implants are approved by the FDA for augmentation in females who are 18 years or older.
  • Structured saline: Also made from saline, these implants are created with a structure that helps make them feel more like natural breast tissue.
  • Gummy bear: These implants are also called “Form-stable” implants and contain a thicker silicone gel than traditional silicone implants that make them better retain their shape, even if the shell becomes torn or broken. They tend to have a more voluminous shape at the bottom and become tapered at the top and require a slightly larger incision to place.
  • Round: In contrast to gummy bear implants, these have the same round shape all over. They tend to result in a more full, projected breast appearance and are less likely to create an unnatural looking shape if they rotate out of position.

In addition to the above, there are other options to consider, such as whether to use smooth or textured breast implants. Dr. Kwan is experienced in placing both silicone and saline breast implants. Both can be terrific options and are considered safe. Studies have shown that there is no apparent link between saline or silicone breast implants and diseases such as breast cancer, reproductive problems, or connective tissue disease.

The implant procedure

You will be given general anesthesia before your surgery so that it is completely painless. While multiple techniques can be used, the most common procedure involves creating a discreet incision on the skin fold under your breast so that any scarring is easily hidden and then placing the implant through the opening that is created. Other locations such as the underarm, areola, and belly button can be used as the insertion point for the implant, which Dr. Kwan can discuss with you. Because it is an invasive surgery, it is important to expect that recovery will take about six weeks on average, and you will likely feel pain and discomfort in the first week. Pain medications can be prescribed as needed to help you manage the pain, however. Dr. Kwan will follow up with you to monitor your healing and results.
