Self improvement with breast augmentation

Friends and family you’ve lost touch with or have long since passed live in our hearts and memories, and our remembrance of them and times nearly forgot usually coincide with the coming of a new year. New Years is a time to reflect on the past and strive for self-improvement in the future, so as the years pass, your new memories become the memories upon which you reflect. This New Years as you consider self-improvement, keep the services that Darrick E. Antell, M.D., F.A.C.S. offers in mind, such as breast augmentation in New York City. Perhaps your breasts are disproportionate to the rest of your body or your breasts are different sizes, have decreased in volume after pregnancy, or need reconstruction after breast surgery. Dr. Antell performs breast augmentation in NYC to provide women with larger, more balanced, symmetrical, and shapelier breasts, so you won’t need a holiday to reflect on times past and a reminder to strive for self-improvement; you’ll simply need a mirror.

Breast augmentation in NY involves inserting an implant behind the breast in order to enlarge the breast one or more cup sizes. Ideal patients for this procedure are women striving for self-improvement, not perfection. The implants used during breast augmentation in NYC are composed of a silicone shell filled with either silicone or saline solution. Darrick E. Antell, M.D., F.A.C.S. typically uses local anesthesia with sedation (twilight sleep) so you sleep through the entire procedure. Dr. Antell will discuss what to expect during surgery, care during recovery, and reasonable expectations for the results of surgery with every patient during initial consultations.

Darrick E. Antell, M.D., F.A.C.S. offers some variation in the method of inserting the implant during breast augmentation in NYC, so incisions may differ depending on patients’ anatomy, their preferences, and Dr. Antell’s recommendations. The incision can be made in the crease where the breast meets the chest, near the armpit, or around the nipple. Dr. Antell will ensure that the incision scars are as inconspicuous as possible, but permanent scars will remain after surgery. Once Dr. Antell creates a pocket by lifting your breast tissue, the implants are placed. Breast augmentation in New York typically lasts approximately one to two hours. Patients may feel sleepy after surgery, but 95% of them never need, or take medicine for discomfort more than Tylenol.   Patients typically return to work in 3 to 5 days with surgery commonly performed on a Wednesday, so patients can return back to the office on Monday.  About 80% of any swelling will dissipate in around three to five weeks after surgery. You may be requested to wear a sports bra following surgery, especially if a breast lift was also performed.  Breast augmentation patients may often go braless in the early post-operative period to keep the implant seated until the initial healing occurs. Women of the age to receive regular mammograms should remember to inform the radiology technicians of your implants, so they may take additional images and angles of the breasts in order to receive a more accurate reading.

Breast Augmentation in NYC can boost your appearance and self-confidence. While you reflect on the variety of ways to strive for self-improvement this New Years, consider whether breast augmentation in NY is right for you. Darrick E. Antell M.D., F.A.C.S. and his staff encourage patients to voice any questions or concerns you may have about breast augmentation. You may contact his New York, NY office at 212.988.4040 or request an appointment online to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Antell.
