Breast Augmentation in New Jersey: Considering the four S’s

Breast Augmentation With Implants

With breast augmentation in New Jersey being so in-demand today, renowned plastic surgeons like Dr. Michael Gartner meet with a high number of clients each month who are interested in planning their own figure transformation. When it comes to research for your procedure, there are 4 key elements to think about, and they all start with “S.”

1. Silicone versus saline

Both leading, FDA approved breast implant options you’ll be offered start with the letter S. These are saline, and silicone. Saline implants have a silicone shell, but they’re filled with sterile salt water once placed inside the breast. Silicone cohesive gel implants have undergone decades of research and development for safety and efficacy so that today, they are incredibly realistic, durable and safe options for breast augmentation in New Jersey.

Your plastic surgeon will show both to you and talk about their pros and cons. Many of Dr. Gartner’s patients select silicone implants due to their excellent safety profile, realistic feel and lower instance of visible rippling.

2. Surgical Incisions

No matter which type of implant you select, there will be surgical incisions required to place them in your body. Depending on the size and type of implant, as well as the surgeon you select, you may have a few options for the location of these incisions.

Devices such as the Keller Funnel have helped to reduce the size of the required implantation openings. They also minimize tissue trauma and contact with implants which are good things. Even very large implants can usually be placed through surprisingly small openings, but those who wish to disguise evidence of their surgery will consider this when choosing the incision route.

Most breast augmentations in New Jersey will use one of 3 locations: the inframammary fold (under the breast), peri areolar (around the areola) or trans axillary ( in the armpit).

Your surgeon will explain these options and what they each involve.

3. Implant Size

Choosing breast implant sizes can be stressful for some women as an immense variety of choices exist. Today we have numerous projections and diameters which mean that a customized size and breast shape can be chosen. The key to taking the worry out of sizing is to focus on the look you want, rather than numbers. The breast volume in ccs may seem important to you, but the same amount would appear different on different women. Your body measurements and existing breast size influence the ultimate result. Your desired style and aesthetic goals should drive your choice.

An experienced body contouring surgeon will evaluate your measurements and physical characteristics, then listen to your goals and lifestyle before recommending sizes. Trying on implant sizers with form-fitting tops can help give you a general idea of outcomes.

4. Surgeon

Selecting the right surgeon for the job is critical to success. Your breast augmentation plastic surgeon should be certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) in plastic surgery and be an ASPS member. It will be best if you view their work and observe a high number of consistent breast augmentation results that you like. Choosing a surgeon who works primarily in the body area you’re interested in is important too. The more a procedure is performed, the more skillful and proficient a surgeon becomes.

Dr. Gartner is a double board-certified plastic surgeon renowned for his breast enhancement skills. If you’re considering revitalizing your figure, he welcomes you to schedule a consultation and begin the exciting journey.
