· Breast Augmentation
The most popular breast surgery procedure at Goals Plastic Surgery Harlem and most other plastic surgery practices for that matter is the breast augmentation using implants. More than 300,000 women chose this surgery in 2018. If a woman’s main goal for breast surgery is to enlarge her breasts, breast augmentation with saline or silicone implants may be the ideal solution. However, it’s also important to realize that there are other factors to consider – including:
o Size of the implants.
o Type of implants.
o Shape of the chosen implant.
o Positioning or placement of the implant; either in front of or behind the muscle.
o Placement of the incision, and thus the likely spot for a scar; in order to make it least visible.
· Breast Lift
The breast lift procedure is often done in conjunction with some type of augmentation in which they will add volume using implants or a fat transfer – as these methods do not alleviate drooping or sagging of the breast tissue. It’s a common companion procedure as the added size can influence gravity more and your breast tissue may droop more so than it otherwise would. According to Dr. Voskin, the Top Plastic Surgeon Harlem has in practice, age, gravity, weight fluctuations and breastfeeding may cause the skin and tissue of once firm breasts to become stretched out, allowing the breasts to hang down instead of sitting high on the chest. A common reason women choose to have a breast lift done is that their breasts may be pointing downwards, specifically the nipples.
· Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Like conventional breast augmentation, this is commonly combined with a breast lift procedure, as it adds volume and the breast lift gives the breasts the lift they need, especially with the added size and volume of the breast. Fat transfers are popular at Goals Plastic Surgery in the form of BBL’s mostly; however these procedures are popular too. Best for those who do not want to use implants, as they can burst and will eventually need to be replaced with time. Sometimes referred to as lipo-filling or fat grafting, this is a great choice for women who desire a subtle increase to their breast size of half a cup to one full cup. Fat is removed from areas like the thighs and midsection using liposuction, the fat is then purified and carefully re-injected into the breasts in layers to sculpt the patient’s requested shape. Thought to be a somewhat more natural means of breast augmentation surgery.
