What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast AugmentationBreast Augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast by inserting implants behind the breasts. The breast implants can be placed under or over the pectoral muscles. Most commonly, Dr. Tehrani places the implants under the muscle. This provides better camouflage and reduces the chance of developing a scar capsule around the breast implant. Saline breast implants are most commonly used for breast augmentation, however, Silicone gel implants are now FDA approved and available for implantation as well.

Breast augmentation has provided many women a state of great satisfaction and well-being. The decision to have a breast augmentation is a very personal one. Every woman’s decision is different and should be made by her, based on her needs, desires and expectations. In Manhattan and Long Island, and the entire New York are in general, there are many options available for the woman who decides that breast augmentation is right for her. The more you know about the procedure and the options involved, the better equipped you will be to make the decision that is best for you.

Breasts vary greatly in both size and shape. The size and shape of your breasts are determined and affected by factors such as age, past pregnancies, genetics and skin elasticity. Even breasts on the same body may vary, making one slightly different from the other. Such variations in size and shape are normal, and they occur in most women.

Before you undergo breast augmentation you need to be well informed of the procedure, the different choices involved, the results you can expect, and the potential risks and complications that could occur.

The TUBA Procedure (Trans-umbilical Breast Augmentation)

The transumbilical technique, or TUBA, is unique in allowing Dr. Tehrani to insert the breast implants through a small incision in the navel rather than in the underside of the breast, under the arm or around the nipple. Currently, only saline implants can be placed using the TUBA technique. The implants are still deflated when inserted; they are moved into position under the muscle behind the breasts, and then filled with saline (salt water solution) to the predetermined volume. Dr. Kevin Tehrani is an established practitioner of the trans-umbilical breast augmentation procedure in Manhattan and Long Island.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation may be a way of achieving the look you would like. Enhanced self esteem and confidence are the primary advantages of this type of surgery.

Who is a candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Candidates include women who feel their breasts are too small, suffer a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy, or have a difference in breast size. Breast augmentation is a common choice after pregnancy and child feeding, when breasts lose their original and youthful look and shape.  The surgery is performed in adulthood at any age. The earliest time for the surgery would be after a young woman’s breasts are fully developed, usually no sooner than age seventeen or eighteen. Rarely, the surgery may be performed at an earlier age if the patient is suffering emotionally from a vast asymmetry of her developing breasts.

Breast augmentation can achieve many different goals. Some of the most common goals realized by women who have had breast augmentation are:

  • enlargement of small breasts
  • balancing breasts differing in size and/or shape
  • reshaping of breasts that are misshapen
  • reshaping and enlarging breasts that have lost their shape or fullness due to pregnancy or age

Psychological and emotional benefits have included an enhanced self-esteem, a more satisfying body image and personal gratification.

Types of Breast Implants

Breast ImplantsBreast implants come in many shapes and sizes, with differing inner and outer materials. Together, you and Dr. Tehrani will select the options that are best suited for you and most likely to achieve the results you desire.

All breast implants have an outer pliable envelope (or shell). The contents of the envelope are used to achieve fullness and create the most natural breast-like feeling possible. The implants are filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel.

Saline is salt water, much like the fluid that makes up 70% of the human body. If the implant should leak and the saline is released, it can be safely absorbed by your body.

Silicone gel-filled implants are now FDA approved and available to patients whom are good candidate for the procedure.

The implant shapes are generally round, oval or contoured. The surface of the implants may be smooth to the touch or textured.
