What a scarless breast augmentation and lift can do for you

Aging, weight fluctuations and pregnancy can all contribute to volume loss and lax tissues in your breasts, making them saggier and flatter than you’d like. You can increase the size of your breasts and make them perkier with a breast augmentation and a lift in a single surgical procedure, performed under local anesthesia and oral sedation. According to A new technique of internal suture mastopexy for mild to moderate breast ptosis[1], a *breast augmentation lift has been found to achieve satisfying, stable results for patients*. For smaller breasts, it is also considered safer and less invasive than other breast lift methods.

You Can Expect

  • Enhance the size of your breasts
  • Enhance mild to moderate sagging for a fuller and perkier shape.
  • Enhance asymmetry in size and/or shape.

You’ll experience

  • A comfortable surgical procedure that you’ll be awake during, but won’t feel any pain or discomfort at all.
  • Both augmentation and a lift performed at the same time so you won’t have to endure two separate surgeries.
  • Your results sooner because your recovery will be faster than a traditional breast augmentation and lift.
  • Minimal scarring. Your scar will be well hidden by the natural color and texture of your areola.
  • The ability to get back to work within week or two.

You’ll notice an immediate increase in your breast size, and optimal results will appear faster than other more traditional techniques. In addition, your nipples will be raised by up to three centimeters, correcting droopiness for a perkier contour.

What makes your scarless breast augmentation and lift at Gartner Plastic Surgery unique

  • Your surgery can only require local anesthesia and oral sedation. That means you won’t need to worry about not waking up or experience the nausea and vomiting associated with general anesthesia. Local anesthesia allows you to recover faster, as well.
  • Dr. Gartner creates a periareolar incision and places internal stitches to achieve the desired amount of lift. Unlike other breast lift techniques, no incision will be made vertically down from the areola to the breast fold, nor will one be made horizontally in the breast fold. The only incision you’ll have is around the areola. That means your scar will be virtually invisible when properly healed.
  • Excess skin is removed via the circumareolar incision to help lift the breast, giving you a perkier contour.
  • Your stitches will dissolve in the days and weeks after your surgery. You won’t need to have them removed.

How To Know If You're A Candidate

New Jersey breast augmentation – how to know if you’re a good candidate

Breast augmentation in New Jersey remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries available. It’s typically performed with either silicone cohesive gel or saline breast implants. The implants used for this procedure have advanced in recent years to include a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The diversity of patients is also an essential factor. Meeting with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine whether breast augmentation is right for you is a valuable first step when planning your enhancement.

Patients should be in good physical health

While patients with medical issues can have a breast augmentation, each case must be assessed individually to ensure safety. Generally, no active infections, untreated cancer, or serious illnesses will be permitted for potential patients. Certain medications that affect immunity, healing or blood clotting can be contraindicated.

Good candidates wish to enhance the shape or size of their breasts

In New Jersey, breast augmentation is often chosen to balance asymmetry or provide a rounder shape to the breasts. With an impressive array of sizes and shapes available, patients are not merely limited to “larger” breasts.

Be in a healthy frame of mind

Ideal cosmetic surgery patients are generally satisfied with their body, have realistic expectations, and aren’t suffering from depression or body dysmorphia. While this procedure often does improve body confidence and delivers a high satisfaction rate, the happiest patients are emotionally and mentally healthy.

Understand the pros and cons

Any surgical procedure carries risks to be aware of and certain uncomfortable aspects while healing. Breast augmentation in New Jersey is generally considered safe with FDA-approved implants and a skilled, experienced plastic surgeon. However, you’ll need to be aware of risks related to medication, implants and healing. Your surgeon will let you know how they and you can help mitigate these concerns.

Ideal candidates have time and help lined up for optimal recovery

You should have a week or two booked off work, depending on the demands of your job. It’s a good idea to arrange for assistance with child or pet care, and even for running errands or housework. Patients who have the smoothest experience after breast augmentation tend to be well-prepared for a restful recovery.

Patients should be over 18

Good candidates for breast surgery are at least 18 years old- ensuring their body has finished growing, and the breasts are fully developed.

Candidates should not be pregnant or breastfeeding

You’ll be advised to wait 6 months on average after breastfeeding to plan your procedure. There may be additional concerns for each individual patient such as their fitness levels and lifestyle, their budget, and more. Meeting your plastic surgeon for a consultation ensures you receive expert, personalized feedback.

However, the only way to really know if you’re a suitable candidate for surgery is by talking to Dr. Gartner during your private medical consultation.

Consult Dr. Gartner

Your Consultation

Your initial consultation regarding the surgery is scheduled with Dr. Gartner, a board certified plastic surgeon who has over a decade of experience performing cosmetic breast surgery. He has helped thousands of women transform their body contour, and he will do the same for you.

You’ll talk to Dr. Gartner during this private medical appointment about your aesthetic goals. Make sure to be frank and honest during your discussion, as it will allow for a more satisfying result. He’ll go over all of the risks and side effects related to the surgery as well as review your medical history.

Please note: that implants that are larger or have a higher profile tend to provide more lift. This is important for patients with more noticeable sagging.

AAAASF medicare certification is considered the gold standard in accreditation and one of the highest certifications any ambulatory center can obtain in the country.

How to prepare for your surgery

Your recovery will be easier and your results will appear faster if you closely follow the pre-surgery care instructions that Dr. Gartner provides you. Some things you can expect to do include the following:

  • Stopping smoking for at least two weeks before surgery.
  • Avoiding medications and supplements that have shown to increase the risk of bleeding, such as Ibuprofen, Aspirin and vitamin E.
  • Eating a healthy diet so your body is properly nourished.
  • Not doing any vigorous physical activity a day or two before your surgery.

Your surgery

Although every surgery is customized based on the unique needs of each patient, this is general outline of what may be done during yours:

  • Pre-emptive anesthesia is administered: Before your surgery begins, you’ll receive pre-emptive anesthesia to prepare your body for surgery and improve your recovery rate.
  • Local anesthesia is administered.
  • An incision is created around your areola.
  • Through the incision, a pocket is created under the muscle.
  • A sterile sizer is positioned in the pocket and adjusted to achieve the desired size.
  • The sizer is taken out and then replaced with the desired implant.
  • Internal stitches, known as “pleating” sutures, are placed inside the breast to create the desired lift.
  • Excess skin may be removed if necessary.
  • The areola may be reduced in circumference if necessary.
  • The incisions are closed with sutures and dressed. This marks the end of your surgery.

Your Recovery

Congratulations, within a few months you’ll be able to see the results of your breast augmentation surgery! All you have to do is to follow the post-surgery care instructions provided to you by Dr. Gartner and wait for your breasts to settle.

Learn What To Do After Surgery

Your Recovery

  • Follow Dr. Gartner’s post-surgery care instructions.
  • Minimize physical activity and movement in the early stages of your recovery.
  • Allow for three to four months to pass before assessing your results.
  • Take care of your incisions to minimize scarring.

In the days after your surgery, you’ll experience some swelling, bruising, discomfort and fatigue. Rest is important at this time, although you shouldn’t spend your whole day in bed. Some leisurely movement is important to reduce the risk of blood clots.

How you’ll look while you recover

*You’ll notice an increase in the size of your breasts, but they may appear flattened and high up on your chest.* This is normal. Over the next few weeks, your breasts will gradually “drop and fluff”—an informal term that refers to the settling of your implants that will create a rounder, fuller contour that is more natural in appearance. You may be asked to wear a bandeau around the top portion of your breasts to accelerate this process.

You’ll be advised to start wearing a bra two to four weeks after your surgery, depending on how fast your implants settle. During this time, if you dislike the appearance of your nipples through your clothing, silicone disc pasties can be worn to hide them. These are available at Victoria’s Secret, among other stores.

Keeping clean

You can start showering the day after surgery, using mild soap to clean your incisions. You won’t be able to take a bath until about two weeks after your surgery. This will help reduce your risk of infection.

When you can go back to work

You’ll probably be able to get back to desk work within a week.

When you can get back to the gym

While you may be able to start doing low-impact and low-intensity aerobic exercises in about two weeks, you’ll need to wait for about four weeks to six weeks before you start weightlifting.

Your results

Once you’ve recovered, you’ll not only have fuller breasts, but they’ll be perkier, too. The procedure will rejuvenate your body contour, making you look better and more youthful.


Changes in nipple sensation: Temporary changes in nipple sensation may occur and tend to disappear in few months. It is rare that changes are permanent.
Deep vein thrombosis: To reduce the risk of developing blood clots, maintain some physical activity as you recover.
Hematoma and seroma: Blood or fluid that is trapped under the skin may require surgical drainage.
Infection: Follow Dr. Gartner’s incision care guidelines to reduce your risk of infection.
Capsular contracture: Research has found that this may be related to infection. There is a higher risk of developing capsular contracture if you’ve had it before.
Wound separation (dehiscence): Excessive tension and infection on the incision line can cause this.
Rupture and deflation: Implants may rupture or deflate. Removal and replacement will be required if this occurs.
“Bottoming out”: This is when an implant becomes displaced and falls outside of the tissue pocket. Dr. Gartner does not lower the inframammary crease (breast fold) to minimize this risk.
Undesirable results: Rippling, visible implant outline, asymmetry and other undesirable aesthetic results may occur. However, by being honest and open about your aesthetic goals before surgery, you can help reduce the risk of this happening.


No guarantees of any kind unless they are money-back guarantees. No claims of permanent results. No “Miracle cures” for medical ailments.*
