Increase Volume With Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as “augmentation mammoplasty” or breast implants, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. Used to increase volume with either implants or natural fat transfer, breast augmentation enhances shape and provides better symmetry. Breast implants is popular among women who are underdeveloped or have lost volume due to pregnancy/breast-feeding, aging or weight loss.

In addition to cosmetic reasons, breast implants may also be used for reconstructive purposes after an accident, disease or birth defect. Our plastic surgeon ensures comfort and privacy, allowing you to receive breast implants in-office at our Manhattan, AAAASF Accredited, surgical suite.

Many women want to achieve a noticeable increase to their breast size. Breast implants are often the best option to noticeably enhance volume while simultaneously improving the shape of your breasts. During this procedure, breast implants are inserted into the breast, just under the chest muscle. Many implant options are available, including the shape and size of the implant and the implant location.

Depending on your preference and Dr. Giese’s recommendation, implant locations vary and may occur in the crease at the bottom of the breast, through the areola, or at the underarm. Dissolvable stitches will be used to close the incisions, but the breast implant scar should typically fade over time and become hardly noticeable.* We encourage you to discuss breast augmentation with Dr. Giese to discover the best options for you.

Types of Breast Implants:

  • Saline
  • Silicone
  • Gummy Bear
  • Round
