Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation or “Breast aug” with breast implants also called, Augmentation Mammaplasty, can help women who would like to add volume to their breasts, reshare their breasts, or and enhance the shape of their breasts.  Breast Augmentation is performed to enlarge breasts that have lost volume from childbirth or weight loss or to enlarge breasts that are underdeveloped.
Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular procedures in the US and helps many women regain confidence, beauty, and self-esteem.

In your surgical consultation, Dr. Adam Nadelson will explain to you your surgical options and answer any questions or concerns you may have about breast augmentation. Dr. Nadelson does not use textured implants. Dr. Nadelson will review with you the many options that exist for Breast aug surgery:

  • types of implants
  • location of the incision and whether a hidden incision is best for you

Depending on your specific needs and goals, other procedures, such as a breast lift, can often be performed with your breast augmentation for an even greater enhancement to the breasts. Breast augmentation procedures are fully customized to your individual needs to help you achieve the most natural-looking results.

To learn more about how breast surgery can enhance your appearance, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Nadelson today.

Breast Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Nadelson specializes in breast augmentation surgery and spent a year in a specialized cosmetic surgery fellowship to learn the “art” of aesthetic breast surgery including breast augmentation. Dr. Nadelson offers the following incision options

  • Umbilical or “Belly Button” incision: a small hidden incision is made in the navel (transumbilical or TUBA)
  • Peri-areolar incision: a curved incision is made at the outer border of the colored portion of the areola.
  • Inframammary incision: a 3-4cm incision is made in the fold of the breast.
  • Axillary incision: an incision is made in the armpit area.

The approach used depends on your unique needs and goals and will be discussed during the consultation process. Once the incision has been made in the planned area, a pocket is then created either directly under the tissue or underneath the muscle. The implant is then placed inside the pocket and the incisions are closed.  Breast augmentation typically takes about one to two hours.

Throughout the entire procedure, Dr. Nadelson pays close attention to aesthetic details, including symmetry and shape, to achieve the most natural appearance.

Recovery from Breast Augmentation

Most women are able to return to work within a few days to a week following their Breast Augmentation. Dr. Nadelson provides medications for pain and muscle spasm which usually last only the first few days following their Breast Aug. Swelling and minimal bruising is normal following breast aug as well. Dr. Nadelson will have some restrictions for the first 6 weeks, limiting lifting and exercise.
