Breast Augmentation in Manhattan, NYC & Long Island
For a woman, the breasts are a sign of femininity. Women with small breasts often feel insecure and shameful of their bodies. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Craig Baldenhofer, MD, offers breast augmentation for women in Manhattan, New York City and Long Island who want to change the size and shape of their breasts.
What is Breast Augmentation?
If you are thinking about getting a boob job, the plastic surgeon that you choose is an important first step. Dr. Baldenhofer approaches breast augmentation as a cosmetic enhancement that should fit well with a woman’s body, personality and lifestyle. His expertise with boob jobs has helped hundreds of women like you feel more comfortable in their bodies for many years.
What are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are silicone shells that are filled with either saline or silicone. These medical devices are approved by the FDA and offer a safe, long-term method for changing the breasts. You have several options with saline and silicone breast implants:
- Round and tear-drop shape
- Fluid volume, which affects the size of the breasts
- Texture of the implants
Choosing saline or silicone implants will affect the way your breasts feel after your boob job. Some women feel that saline implants offer the most natural texture. Women must be at least 18 years old to have breast augmentation with saline implants and at least 21 years old to have silicone implants.
Which Type of Breast Implant is Right for Me?
Safety is typically the most concerning aspect for women who are considering silicone implants. The technologies that are used for the design of these implants have improved, yet the risk for rupture does still exist. If you are concerned with the safety of the implants, saline may be the best option.
Dr. Baldenhofer discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each type of implant and helps you make an informed decision.
