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.

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.

Ready to start looking your best? We offer virtual and in-office consultations.
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:
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.
All breast implants in our NJ office have a shell that is made out of a substance called silicone. The surface of the shell can either be smooth or textured. And since everyone is different, there cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach. Each breast implant is specifically picked out with the patient’s build and goals in mind.
|Different Types of Implants||SILICONE||SALINE|
|Composition||Silicone implant shell filled with silicone cohesive gel||Silicone implant shell filled with saline solution (salt water)|
|Feel||Soft, natural||Firm due to the need to over-fill in order to prevent rippling|
|Durability||Generally lasts forever||Risk of rupture increases significantly after 10 years|
|Control of Volume||Silicone implants are sealed, no adjustments to volume can be made during the procedure however different size implants can be used to address asymmetry||Adjustments to volume can be made during the procedure by adding more or less saline|
|Candidates||FDA-approved for patients 21 or older||FDA-approved for patients 18 or older|
|Cost||Slightly more expensive||Slightly less expensive|
Breast implants in New Jersey can generally be placed into two locations. The areas are: below the breast tissue and pectoralis muscle (submuscular) or below the breast tissue only (subglandular). Most commonly, Dr. Morin uses the submuscular location, or a hybrid called the dual-plane, as these techniques offer some benefits.
The main benefit of the technique is a more natural look. Several studies report a lower risk of capsular contracture (tightening around the implant after surgery). This risk is lower when placing implants below the breast tissue.
Dr. Morin’s surgical techniques are designed to leave you with the least visible scars possible after surgery. He usually recommends the least noticeable option – the periareolar incision (the area between the light breast skin and the darker areola).
In a small number of patients who insist on it, he will use an inframammary fold incision. This type of incision is done in the crease on the underside of the breast. However, he thinks this is a less effective option.
Two other described incision sites, transaxillary (armpit) and transumbilical (belly button) are not recommended at all.
Breast augmentation in our New Jersey office usually takes between one and two hours and is done under general anesthesia. Dr. Morin will make small incisions and then the breast tissue is then lifted. This helps to carefully and precisely create a pocket into which the implant is placed.
By using the Keller Funnel®2 “no-touch” technique, he can keep the incision size as small as possible, following the natural curves of the chest wall. This method allows periareolar incisions to be used in most of his patients regardless of the nipple and areolar size.
This technique reduces the risk of infection and tightening after surgery, prevents damage to the implant, and significantly reduces surgery time. Once the breast implants are properly in position, the incisions are carefully closed. Next, a surgical bra is used during recovery for support and comfort.
When performing surgery, Dr. Morin follows a unique set of rules. This guide helps ensure the highest level of patient safety and comfort. His goal is to give patients the best breast augmentation NJ has to offer.
He only performs the surgery under general anesthesia and at a fully accredited surgical facility. In addition, he only uses the highest quality breast implants that the US FDA approves. Dr. Morin is well known for his consistent use of the “no-touch” technique.
You will need to leave with a responsible adult. Someone who can ensure your safety while the anesthesia completely wears off. If no one is available, we can arrange to have a nurse take care of you for a few hours.
We can also have someone stay with you overnight. While you should have a friend, family member, or ride service drive you home, you can recover by yourself.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
