Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

Your White Plains NY breast augmentation surgery will be done under general anesthesia. That means you will be unconscious and unable to feel anything throughout the experience. The entire procedure should take about an hour to an hour and a half.

Once you are sedated, Dr. Reinblatt will create the incision discussed during your pre-operative appointments and place the implant. She will assess the way the implant fits your body to ensure the size, shape and positioning are correct. She will then carefully suture the incision, before wrapping the breasts with gauze and fitting you for a surgical bra.

Silicone vs. Saline: Which implant is right for you?


Silicone breast implants were approved by the FDA for reintroduction to the U.S. market in 2006 after extensive testing demonstrated their safety. These Westchester breast implants offer a natural look and feel, because silicone is a similar consistency to natural breast tissue.

  • Advantages:

    Look and feel like natural breasts

    Rippling is less common

    Ideal for thin women

    Best option for breast reconstruction

  • Disadvantages:

    Potential for an undetected rupture

    Higher rate of capsular contracture

    Larger incisions required


Westchester Breast Augmentation


During the ban on silicone breast implants from 1992 to 2006, breast surgeons used saline implants exclusively. They are filled during surgery and come in a wide array of sizes and shapes to fit any body contour.

  • Advantages:

    Extremely safe option

    No risk of an undetected rupture

    Soft and durable material

  • Disadvantages:

    Rippling is more common

    Not ideal for thin women

    Not an option for reconstruction



The implant shape will have a major impact on the look of your breasts after surgery. There are two basic shape options available: teardrop and round. The best one for you will depend on your body type and desired outcome.

Round implants are very commonly used. They can be low- or high-profile, and are ideal for women who want a dramatic lift and ample cleavage.

Teardrop implants are sloped, so they are fuller at the bottom than they are at the top. This is similar to the shape of natural breasts, so they tend to be ideal for women who want a more conservative look.

Westchester Breast Implants


You have two options for the placement of your breast implants in Westchester NY: subglandular and submuscular.

With subglandular, the implant is placed above the pectoral muscle and beneath the mammary gland. This is associated with increased cleavage, a shorter recovery period and less post-operative pain. However, if any ripples form, they will be more noticeable with this option.

With submuscular, the implant is placed beneath the pectoral muscle. This tends to produce extremely natural results and conceals any ripping well, especially in thin and small-breasted women. There's also less risk of capsular contracture. However, this type of placement involves a longer and more uncomfortable surgery, and it may not produce ample cleavage.



You have three main incision options for your Westchester breast augmentation: areolar, inframammary and transaxillary.

With the areolar incision, the cut is placed along the bottom border of the areola. It's a popular choice because the scar blends in with your skin.

The inframammary incision involves placing cuts at the base of the breast. It's a common incision choice for silicone gel implants.

And finally, if you're having saline implants placed, a transaxillary incision can be made in the armpit and the implant can be filled to the appropriate size with tubing.


The recovery: What to expect

  • Breast pain, soreness and fatigue for the first few days
  • Arrange to have a friend or family member care for you during recovery
  • Avoid bending, straining, heavy lifting and any strenuous activity
  • Most patients can return to sedentary work within one week
  • Swelling may persist for five weeks or longer
  • Avoid exercise for four weeks

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is it Recommended to Place Implants Below the Muscle?

It is often recommended to place implants below the muscle so that the implant has a more natural look. The extra tissue coverage gives a more natural slope to the top of the breast so that the outline of the implant is less likely to be seen or felt.

What is the Best Size Implants to Get?

This depends on your own body shape and proportions. Proportion is everything when it comes to an aesthetic and appealing result. Dr. Reinblatt will help you to determine the most appropriate size of implant for your body so that your breasts look larger, balanced, and natural in appearance.

Should I Get a Breast Lift With My Augmentation?

If your breasts are already quite large but are drooping, stretched, or have lost volume after weight loss and appear deflated, then a breast lift should be performed alongside your Westchester breast augmentation. This will result in a far superior and appealing appearance.

Is Capsular Contracture Very Common?

Capsular contracture fairly uncommon, occurring in about 3.6 percent of patients. The type of implants you choose may decrease the risk. Dr. Reinblatt will inform you as to which type of implants could reduce the risk of developing capsular contracture.

Will I Lose Nipple Sensation from the Procedure?

A breast augmentation alone does not typically interfere with the nerves or tissue around the nipple, so sensation and functionality can be maintained. It may take some time before full sensation returns.

Can I still Breastfeed After a Boob Job?

Most women will still be able to breastfeed after a breast augmentation in most procedures, there is no interference with the nipple or milk ducts. If the augmentation is combined with a breast lift, then that may involve compromising these areas. If this is a concern for you then it should be discussed with Dr. Reinblatt during your initial consultation.
