    What Exactly Is Breast Enhancement?

    Breast augmentation, also called augmentation mammoplasty, is a procedure performed to increase your breast size by placing implants underneath your existing breast tissue or chest muscles. The cosmetic surgery itself lasts between one and two hours and is typically an outpatient procedure.

    This type of breast surgery allows you to pick exactly what you want, in terms of size and shape. With Dr. Shokrian there to guide you every step of the way, you get a new pair of perfectly fit, natural-looking breasts. Many women opt for breast enhancement in NYC to:

    Correct asymmetry.

    Implants are used to correct asymmetry by plumping both breasts to the same ultimate size, shape and firmness. This also improves the balance of your hip and breast contours, while giving you the overall symmetrical shape that’s attractive everywhere you go.

    Boost self-confidence.

    Having a flat chest can be an area of insecurity and even shame for some women. If your body has been the source of self-doubt and frustration, there may be a simple solution in elective breast enhancement surgery.

    Complete a mommy makeover.

    After childbirth, your breasts may start to look a little worse for the wear and tear of nursing. A mommy makeover recaptures your figure from before the pregnancies. For its part, breast enhancement is a well-deserved enhancement of the body you rocked before kids.

    Combat signs of aging.

    Between the effects of gravity over the decades and the loss of that youthful elasticity that kept the pep in your bounce, your breasts may need a little help to stay propped up. An NYC breast augmentation is the ticket to capture a more youthful figure.

    Feel sexier.

    Life can wear you down — mentally and physically. Fight back the mundane by jumpstarting your sex life with a breast augmentation.

I was turned down by a few surgeons for their lack of knowledge with trans bodies before I was able to get consultation with Millenial. Their experience in feminizing the body with lipo 360 and bbl sold me and it was worth the wait! So so happy I decided to go with Millenial the staff was incredible.

    How Do I Know What Type of Breast Implants to Get?

    First, your Manhattan board-certified plastic surgeon takes into consideration things like your body type and skin elasticity. Then you select which type of breast implant is right for you.

    Besides selecting the type of implant, you may also consider aspects such as:

    What Happens During Breast Implant Surgery?

    When you rely on one of the best breast implant surgeons, the procedure is fairly standard. It begins with some preliminary steps.

    For optimum results, you’re required to:

    The surgery itself occurs in the surgical center of Millennial Plastic Surgery. Depending on the scope of your surgery, you receive either general or local anesthesia.

    When you’re prepped and ready, your NYC breast implant plastic surgeon:

    1. Makes a single cut under your breast, under your arm or around your nipple, depending on the type of procedure you’ve agreed to
    2. Creates a pocket behind or in front of your chest muscle
    3. Inserts breast the implant
    4. Closes the incision
    5. Bandages the area
    6. Repeats the process for your other breast
    7. Monitors you during a brief post-op period to ensure you’re good to go
    8. Sends you home

    What Are Typical Post-Breast Augmentation Instructions?

    After the procedure, you receive breast augmentation post-op instructions from your surgeon. Follow these to the letter, as a healthy recovery gives you the permanent results you came for. Put as much thought into your recovery as you did choosing your implants.

    The amount of time it takes to recover depends on your specific situation — the more intricate your surgery, the longer it usually takes to heal. On average, a full recovery period lasts four to six weeks. Your sleep regimen may have to change from your norm, and you’re advised not to rest on your side for at least the first 24 hours. Post-op breast augmentation instructions typically include:

    1. Cold compresses. Hold an ice compress on the side of your breasts every hour or two for the first 24 hours after surgery. The ice helps soothe pain and decrease the swelling.
    2. Prescribed pain medication. A You should take medication as prescribed for pain after surgery. You shouldn’t take any other medications in the first 10 days after surgery, unless your surgeon permits it.
    3. No alcohol and tobacco. Refrain from drinking alcohol or smoking for at least the first 10 days after surgery, as alcohol and tobacco use slow down your healing process.
    4. Activity limitations. Do not engage in strenuous activity for at least 24 hours after surgery, including running and rigorous workouts. Your Midtown Manhattan physician advises you when you can get back to your normal routine. During your follow-up visits, your doctor confirms you’re making sufficient progress in your healing.
    5. Don’t panic. It’s likely that your chest will take four weeks to several months to look completely normal. Don’t panic if your breasts appear misshapen from the swelling in the beginning of your recovery process. Give yourself time to heal properly.

    Some women experience nerve pain after receiving a breast enhancement. This normally consists of tingling or shooting pains around the incision area. This discomfort is typical and normally fades with time. Follow your doctor’s post-breast augmentation instructions by taking the appropriate prescribed pain medication and refraining from sleeping in a way that scratches or puts pressure on the incisions.

    What Are Other Considerations I Should Know about Breast Implant Surgery?

    Know the facts so you have realistic expectations about all that’s involved when you get breast implants.

    Of course, as with any surgery, signs of infection and prolonged or new pain should be reported immediately. Occasionally, more breast surgery may be required to remove or replace breast implants if these or other issues arise.

    Breast Enhancement NYC – FAQs

    Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation Procedure?

    There’s no one-size-fits-all answer, but good candidates for breast augmentation generally:

    Consult an expert surgeon Dr. Shokrian for a personalized assessment. He will discuss your goals, anatomy, and medical history to determine if breast augmentation is right for you.

    When Can I Sleep on My Side After Breast Augmentation?

    Most surgeons recommend sleeping on your back for at least 4-6 weeks following breast augmentation to allow the implants and incision sites to heal properly. This minimizes pressure on the surgical area and encourages proper positioning of the implants. Always follow Dr. Shokrian’s specific instructions. He is an expert on your case and knows what’s best for your recovery.

    Do Breast Implants Cause Cancer?

    Breast implant placement doesn’t cause breast cancer. However, studies have identified a slightly higher association with anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) in women with breast implants. However, it’s crucial to remember that the overall risk of ALCL is still low.

    The average cost of breast augmentation in NYC typically starts at around $12,500. Because this surgery is cosmetic, it most likely won’t be covered by your medical insurance. But if you need a mastectomy due to breast cancer, a following breast enhancement procedure to even out your breasts is usually fully covered.
