Breast Surgery

Conveniently located to serve New York City

Breast augmentation is the ideal procedure for women who are unhappy with the size and appearance of their breasts. At Manhattan Surgical Care in New York, we have provided numerous women in the Manhattan area with excellent results from their breast augmentation.

Are You Unhappy with the Appearance of Your Breasts?

One of the most common aesthetic issues that women have with their appearance is that size of their breasts. Women who feel like their breasts are too small for their body can feel incredibly self-conscious about the issue.

They may try to compensate for the issue by purchasing special bras, or they may just try to wear clothing items that don’t draw attention to their chests. Some women may find it difficult to find clothes that fit around their upper body without looking too loose around the chest area.

Have You Considered Getting a Breast Augmentation?

In many cases, women who feel like their breasts are too small for their body find that undergoing a breast augmentation helps to restore their comfort with their appearance. The procedure is completely safe, can be personalized to satisfy specific aesthetic goals, and is capable of providing beautiful and natural-looking results.

Breast augmentation can be performed along with other cosmetic procedures to provide more dramatic results. Liposuction can be used to remove excess bulk from other areas of the body to help accentuate your breast augmentation results. A Brazilian butt lift can also be performed to help to redefine the entire figure.

Choosing the Right Surgeon to Perform Your Breast Augmentation

Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Basil Pakeman is exceptionally skilled and has provided countless patients with results that fully satisfy their aesthetic needs at our Manhattan and New York City practices.

I am very happy with my results. Dr. Pakeman is the best cosmetic surgeon. He helped me gain my confidence back.

Personalizing Your Breast Augmentation

During your initial consultation with Dr. Pakeman at our New York and Manhattan cosmetic surgery practice, you will have the opportunity to precisely explain what your goals are for the breast-augmentation procedure.

Some women may want a slightly larger breast size with enhanced cleavage. Others may want breasts that are significantly larger because they have specific aesthetic goals in mind.

While increasing the size of the breasts is a key aspect of a breast augmentation, there are also many other aesthetic factors that need to be considered. These include:

  • Shape
  • Projection
  • Texture
  • Movement

Implants may be filled with saline solution or silicone gel, and each type has its own specific benefits in terms of aesthetics. Additionally, implants can either have a round appearance or a more natural-looking teardrop shape.

Preparing for Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is a significant decision that requires careful preparation to ensure a successful and safe outcome. Here, we provide a comprehensive guide on how to prepare for this procedure, emphasizing medically sound practices and considerations.

Health Assessment: Dr. Pakeman will evaluate your overall health to determine if you are a suitable candidate for breast augmentation. You may be required to undergo specific medical tests, such as blood work, to ensure you are in good physical condition for surgery.

Medication Review: Disclose all medications, supplements, and herbal remedies you are taking during your consultation. Dr. Pakeman will provide guidance on which medications to discontinue before surgery, as some may increase the risk of bleeding or other complications.

Lifestyle Modifications: In the weeks leading up to surgery, maintain a healthy lifestyle. Exercise regularly, maintain a balanced diet, and avoid smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, as these habits can impact the healing process.

Arrange Transportation: Ensure that you have reliable transportation to and from the surgical facility on the day of your procedure. Arrange for a responsible adult to accompany you, as you will not be able to drive home following surgery due to the effects of anesthesia.

Home Preparation: Organize your home to ensure a comfortable and stress-free recovery. Set up a recovery area with pillows, blankets, and entertainment options within easy reach. Stock up on nutritious, easy-to-prepare meals and hydration options.

Follow Pre-Operative Instructions: Our patient care team will provide specific pre-operative instructions, such as when to discontinue food and drink. Adhering to these guidelines is vital to reduce the risk of complications during surgery.

Purchase Surgical Bras: Purchase any recommended surgical bras in advance to ensure proper support and comfort during your recovery.

Recovery Assistance: Enlist the help of a trusted friend or family member to assist you during the initial days of recovery. They can provide emotional support and help with daily tasks as needed.

Mental and Emotional Preparedness: Understand that breast augmentation surgery is a significant procedure with both physical and emotional aspects. Be prepared for changes in body image, and ensure you have a support system in place to address any concerns or anxiety.

Thorough preparation is crucial for a successful breast augmentation surgery. By following these guidelines and working closely with Dr. Pakeman and our patient care team, you can achieve the desired outcome while minimizing potential risks and complications. Remember that open communication with our office is essential throughout the process to ensure a safe and satisfying surgical experience.

Recovering from Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

During your recovery, you will need to wear a special post-surgical bra. This is to provide your breasts with additional support while the tissues and incisions are healing. Normal bras can cause damage to the tissues, especially bras with underwire.

You should expect to experience some bruising, swelling, and discomfort, but these issues should subside after a week or so. There may be a feeling of tightness around the chest for a brief period of time while the body heals and adjusts. Most patients will be able to return to work after about five to seven days. Swelling can take between six to eight weeks to fully dissipate.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

The cost of breast augmentation can vary based on unique factors such as the choice of implants, surgical techniques, and personal goals. During your personalized consultation with Dr. Pakeman, you will receive a customized surgical plan tailored to your specific needs and desires, including a detailed breakdown of the price.

At Manhattan Surgical Care, we are committed to ensuring accessibility and for the convenience our patients. We offer various payment options. In addition to cash and checks, we gladly accept all major credit cards. For added flexibility, we also provide the option of financing through CareCredit, a credit program designed to assist individuals seeking medical and cosmetic procedures in managing their financial arrangements with ease and convenience.
