Breast Augmentations In New York Come In All Shapes And Sizes

Breast Augmentation With Implants

Women looking to undergo breast augmentation in New York today have a great selection of implants to choose from. This makes it easy to find the size, filling, or shape that both suits your augmentation goals and is most compatible with your body type. However, options can come with indecision or uncertainty about which choice is best for you.

Your surgeon will be able to use their expertise and knowledge during the consultation process to help you understand your options, but a going into the meeting with some prior research is never a bad thing. Here is a quick primer on the different options available for breast implants.


This is perhaps the most significant decision to be made when choosing an implant for a New York breast augmentation. Implants come with two types of filler: saline or silicone gel.

Saline is a type of saltwater solution and is used in both traditional implants and newer models that can be placed through a very small incision and filled once in place. Since saline implants are inflated after being placed, they allow for fine-tuning and size customization. Saline implants are ideal for those who prefer the idea of salt water and they are typically priced lower than silicone gel or other implant types.

Cohesive silicone gel implants are available in a softer, round variety or a firmer “gummy bear” teardrop shaped implant type. The silicone used is not a liquid and keeps its structure much better than saline so it mimics natural density and feel of breast tissue well and if the shell is breeched in any way, the contents stay in place.

Shape & Size

Implants affect more than breast size and can influence the shape, lift, and projection of the chest as well. Projection affects how forward the breasts will be, lift affects how high they will rest when unsupported, and diameter governs how wide your breasts will appear following augmentation.

Your surgeon will be able to advise you on which shapes and sizes will be most suited for your New York breast augmentation based on your body type, structure of the breast tissue, and shape of the chest wall. Incidentally, the amount of pre-existing breast tissue will also affect whether an under or over-the-muscle placement will work best for your implant.

Post-Surgical Developments

Breast implants are remarkably durable but are subject to wear and tear like any other product. Although the likelihood of mechanical failure is low, your surgeon will want to make sure you are aware of possibilities such as implant deflation, rupture, migration, or contracture.

None of these events are common or life threatening but it is important to be aware of them. This is also relevant for your choice of implant since mechanical failures present differently depending on filler, size, and placement. Your surgeon will review the specific concerns, expectations and follow up care required in the future.
