Breast augmentation is one of the most desired of all aesthetic surgeries. Shapely, lifted, balanced breasts can create a more ideal figure for women who lack the breast volume they want. The process involves placing either silicone or saline implants, or natural fat transfer, to create fuller breasts or resolve breast asymmetry.
If you are unhappy with some aspect of your breasts, you have the right to create the figure you have always wanted with breast augmentation in Greenwich. Good candidates for this surgery include those in good general health, at a healthy weight, and have any of the following aesthetic issues:
Every woman has a unique physiology, and how the procedure is performed will vary. Some of the issues to be determined include the size and type of implant to be placed. Some patients may wish to undergo a more natural approach by transferring natural fat to subtly enhance breast size.
Breast augmentation with implants: The most common type of breast augmentation involves placing breast implants, which may be either silicone or saline. Silicone implants have a softer, more natural feel, and many women choose these implants. Others may choose saline implants, which have an advantage as the saline can be added after the implant is placed for a shorter incision.
The incisions may be around the areola of the nipple, in the breast crease, or in the armpit (saline only). The incision is placed, a “surgical pocket” is created, and the implant is placed. For many women, the implant is placed beneath the pectoral muscles for a very natural look, which helps to avoid certain risks, but comes with a slightly longer recovery time. All considerations will be fully discussed with you at your initial consultation so you can make an educated decision.
Breast augmentation with natural fat transfer: For women who have an abundance of fat on the buttocks, upper thighs, or love handles, fat cells can be harvested from the selected area with gentle liposuction, cleansed, processed, and purified, and then injected into the upper breast to add subtle volume. As the fat cells are your own, the body recognizes them and allows a percentage to integrate into the breasts for a long-term, very natural enhancement.
This procedure is performed with the most advanced health and safety protocols to ensure the maximum number of fat cells survive the transfer. This enhancement can increase breast volume by about one bra size. It comes with the added benefit of sculpting the donor area, whether the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs.
The recovery after breast augmentation in Greenwich is generally uneventful. Initially, the breasts will be swollen, which reduces as the days pass. Any discomfort can be managed with prescription pain medication, which is usually only needed in the first stage of recovery. You will have full aftercare instructions, and Dr. Reinblatt will be carefully monitoring your progress, seeing you for several follow-up appointments.
You will need to sleep on your back, with extra pillows to keep your upper body elevated during your recovery and wear a surgical bra to keep your breasts protected and in place. Most women feel well enough to return to more vigorous physical activities within about four to six weeks, although the breasts are looking beautiful within about two weeks. Incision lines fade with time to become almost invisible and are placed low enough to be hidden, even in the most revealing clothing or lingerie.
Breast augmentation surgery should be performed with the most advanced surgical techniques. Dr. Reinblatt is a double board-certified female plastic surgeon who has a female perspective that enhances the entire experience. Her precision skills, reputation for excellence, and warm, honest communication will make your journey to beautiful breasts positive and empowering, with results that bring you confidence in all the years ahead.
