What Is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the world. It is still surgery, however. Therefore it should only be performed under general anesthesia, using the “no-touch” technique, by a board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Morin strives to offer the best breast augmentation results in New Jersey.

Breast augmentation surgery using silicone implants is one of Dr. Morin’s main areas of expertise. He is voted by his colleagues as one of New York Magazine’s best plastic surgeons. Castle Connolly celebrates his accomplishments.

His expert surgical technique places breast implants more precisely, gently, and with minimal trauma to the surrounding breast tissue. This technique, combined with an implant funnel, results in a smaller incision and less pain after surgery.

Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation at our NJ office is a surgical procedure that increases the size and shape of breasts. Dr. Morin achieves natural results with either silicone or saline breast implants. These implants increase the overall size and fullness of the breast.

How Dr. Morin Achieves Optimal Results

Dr. Morin’s techniques allow him to develop a natural breast size in either of the following ways:

  • He makes a very small incision in the chest muscles. This incision is made by using either the Keller funnel or the inPlant funnel for the “no-touch” technique. This stops the implant from ever touching the outside world. This meticulous and careful technique lessens the risk of infection and capsular contracture after breast reconstruction.
  • During consultations, Dr. Morin sees many concerns. The most common issue Dr. Morin sees in women with breast implants is the violation of the integrity of the inframammary fold. This error is a result of surgeries done by other surgeons.

    This type of surgery can cause a patient’s implant to drop too far down. And the results create a bottomed-out appearance. The implant sits low on the chest wall, and the nipple ends up too high.

    In order to fix this issue, Dr. Morin will reconstruct the fold. To do so, he uses either acellular dermis (Alloderm or Belladerm) or a synthetic mesh (Galatea). This structure is used as a supportive floor for the implant to sit on. This is a complex procedure that he has done many times.

  • Sizing before surgery is an important part of the planning process. Dr. Morin uses the Mentor gel sizing system with a sports bra in his office. This technique helps give his patients a good idea of the final size and shape of their breasts. This method shows patients how their breasts will look post-operative, with careful consideration of your body’s size and shape.
  • A precise implant pocket dissection under direct vision prevents bleeding and ensures proper implant position and symmetry.
  • An appropriate dissection between breasts in the area of the cleavage is significant. Too much can create one breast, aka a “uni-boob”. However, not enough creates a large space or valley between the two breasts.

    The best way is to balance the size of the implant, nipple position, and cleavage space. This method depends on the patient’s specific build, goals, and desires.

Breast Implant Options For New Jersey Patients

The most recommended implant used in breast augmentation in our NJ office is a strong silicone shell. It consists of saline or a soft, natural textured silicone gel.

Silicone breast implants were not always positive in the United States. Because of concerns about the safety of early silicone implants, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned their use. These implants were banned for cosmetic breast augmentation in 1992.

Over the next 14 years, a massive amount of data from clinical studies was reviewed by professionals. In a statement released in 2006, the FDA finally overturned the ban. They told patients that silicone implants were “safe and effective.” Since then, silicone implants have been successful in all types of patients with an extremely high level of satisfaction.

Dr. Morin prefers to use silicone implants on his patients. And the reason is because he believes they result in a more natural and long-lasting result, unlike saline implants. In addition, they are very safe.

For those worried about the presence of silicone in their implant, remember that all implant shells consist of silicone. This factor is regardless of the inner filling.

Things To Consider Before Having Breast Augmentation Surgery

Mammoplasty augmentation surgery can greatly enhance the look of a woman’s breasts and body. Options for developing the most fitting breasts include:

  • The size of the implant
  • The breast implant material (whether it consists of saline or silicone gel)
  • The breast implant position (whether the placement is above or below the pectoralis major muscle)

Choosing the right implant size and surgery approach is important for the most natural results. In addition, this choice helps you successfully meet your goals and expectations. Dr. Morin offers natural results once you’ve decided to undergo breast augmentation surgery in New Jersey.

Dr. Morin has over ten years of surgical experience. He is known for his contributions to the complex field of plastic surgery. He strives to perform mammoplasty augmentation surgery in a way that leaves the breasts looking natural. This result is possible even when you go with a larger implant.

In addition, Dr. Morin provides his patients with many different size implant options to try on. This process helps many women see which one looks and feels the best.

Recovering After Breast Augmentation in NJ

We do our New Jersey breast implant procedures outpatient under general anesthesia. After just a few days, patients can continue most activities (with some restrictions).

Before your breast augmentation surgery at our Hackensack office, Dr. Morin explains the recovery process. A thorough explanation will help you know what to expect after surgery. Every woman’s body is unique. Therefore, your recovery time could be longer or shorter than another woman with the same age, weight, and size.

Once you wake up from the anesthesia, you will feel sore. You may feel the sensation of pressure on your chest. The effects of the anesthesia will wear off, and the dizzy feeling will pass shortly after.

The first few days are the least comfortable, and you may experience some bruising and swelling. Dr. Morin will prescribe you pain medication to take if needed to feel more comfortable. Your breasts may also look like they are initially sitting a little too high on your chest. This appearance will resolve itself as the implants drop during recovery and settle into a more natural position.

Massage exercises and scar fading products made with silicone will be recommended after your surgery. These therapies will help to ensure that your results are as beautiful as possible.

If you have a desk job, you will likely be able to return to work within a few days. First, however, it is important that you ease back into your daily routine. Taking it easy can help you heal properly and get the best results from breast implant surgery.

After a few weeks, you will be able to jump back into your normal daily routine. You can enjoy certain types of light exercise. But, it is important that you refrain from strenuous activities such as:

  • Running
  • Heavy lifting, especially bench pressing exercises
  • Work that involves a lot of labor

After two months, Dr. Morin will be able to monitor your recovery. It’s important that you follow his advice so that your incisions and implants heal properly.

Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation in NJ

How big can I go?

Dr. Morin is always mindful of achieving the most beautiful and natural results. Every patient is unique. Depending on your body size and shape, he will tailor the size of your NJ breast implants. This personalization gives you the most proportionate look without making your cosmetic surgery look obvious.

The right implant should be long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing. New Jersey’s leading breast augmentation surgeon Dr. Morin will not make you look fake or overdone.

How should I prepare for surgery?

Dr. Morin and his highly trained team will review the surgery plan with you before treatment. You should plan to take 4 to 7 days off from important commitments such as work and school while you recover.

We will also ask that you schedule a physical exam and a blood test. This precaution is to ensure that you are healthy enough to have surgery. Finally, you may have to stop taking certain medications and vitamins before surgery and stop smoking.

Will I need additional surgery in the future?

Breast implants by New Jersey surgeon Dr. Morin are designed to be long-lasting. You can enjoy the benefits of a single procedure for decades. Still, there is the possibility that a patient may need to have breast revision surgery in the future. This additional surgery can improve the shape of the breasts as a woman ages.

In addition, women may require additional surgery following pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, and major weight loss.

How long does breast surgery take?

Dr. Morin takes exceptional care throughout the surgical process. While every patient’s procedure is unique, surgery can take between 1 to 2 hours.

Many factors will influence how long surgery takes. They include the type of anesthesia used, the type of implant selected, and the incision location.

Am I a candidate?

Good New Jersey breast augmentation candidates meet the following criteria. You are a good candidate for breast implant surgery if you are in good physical health. Patients should be 18 or older. If you feel self-conscious about your breasts or want larger breasts, surgery might help. You can view before & after photos of real breast augmentation patients at your consultation.

Will my implants be noticeable?

Breast implant technology has changed a lot in the past few decades. Breast implant options now differ a lot in appearance, implant size and texture compared to many years ago. Silicone breast implants are considerably safer, with a durable outer shell; they feel more natural and look like natural breasts. Board-certified NJ breast augmentation specialist Dr. Morin aims to create natural results.

Can I breastfeed after breast augmentation?

It’s normal for women in New Jersey to put off breast augmentation. This delay often happens because they are worried about the ability to breastfeed. However, surgery avoids the native breast tissue and milk ducts entirely when done properly.

First, the incision is made around the glandular tissue. Next, the implant is set into a meticulously designed space below the muscle. Therefore, breast implant surgery should not affect breastfeeding.

That said, successful breastfeeding is a complex process. Therefore, you should discuss your future breastfeeding plans with NJ breast augmentation specialist Dr. Morin during your consultation.

Will there be scarring after breast implants?

Anytime a surgical incision is made in the skin, a scar will form. This formation is part of the body’s normal and amazing healing process. Dr. Morin’s breast implant technique is careful to minimize noticeable scarring, so the scar is less likely to be seen.

His patients greatly appreciate these techniques. In addition, almost all scars tend to fade with time.

How much does breast augmentation cost?

There are many considerations when thinking about breast implant costs. These may include the state you will have surgery in, your surgeon’s experience, and facilities. Then, consider the type of breast implant, either a silicone breast implant or saline, the size and shape, and incision type.

All of these reasons can raise costs. Dr. Morin will give you a detailed breakdown of breast augmentation costs in New Jersey. The costs will be based on your consultation, desired goals, and the choice of implant material used.

What Risks are Associated with Breast Augmentation?

Breast implants can greatly improve your self-confidence. However, it does come with risks that the patient should keep in mind. By being open and honest with board-certified NJ surgeon Dr. Morin, the chance of complications is reduced.

The overall risks of mammoplasty augmentation surgery may include:

  • A change in nipple sensation
  • Breast pain
  • The chance of implant rupture
  • An infection
  • Swelling or bruising
  • Skin rashes or redness
  • Changes in the shape of the implant because of scar tissue
