Breast augmentation has provided many women with increased self-confidence, better figure proportion, and improved body image. Women report that clothes fit better, and they no longer feel self-conscious about their breast size and shape. Breast augmentation enhances the breasts by inserting implants under, or over the pectoral muscles.
Breast augmentation can achieve several goals which include:
- Enlarging small breasts
- Breast symmetry
- Correct misshapen breasts
- Reshaping and enlarging of breasts that have lost their shape or fullness due to pregnancy or the aging process
It can truly be life changing; a breast augmentation can restore a youthful appearance, correct physical abnormalities, or just increase the breast size to help women feel better about themselves. Professional and personal relationships will experience huge benefits thanks to you new-found confidence.
Real Patient Results
I have always been self conscious about my breasts since I was a child. As an adult, going through two pregnancies (one being with twins) and having my body stretched beyond its limits, my breasts had more than they could handle. For approximately two years consistently I would consult different surgeons only to hear that once my surgery was complete I would be left with a (lollipop) scar–going around the areola and continuing straight down the middle of my breasts to the base. My 7th and final consultation was with Dr. Tehrani – AND IT WAS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING. I IMMEDIATELY KNEW HE WAS THE SURGEON FOR ME. Not only is his staff absolutely wonderful, warm, welcoming, professional and extremely knowledgeable, but as a surgeon he is extremely innovative and BRILLIANT and did everything to accommodate my expectations…I can not say enough wonderful things about this experience, and Dr. Tehrani. Thank you one million times. I’m forever a patient and you have my loyalty. Amazing amazing surgeon.

BREAST AUGMENTATION NYC – SUITABLE CANDIDATES
Breast augmentation candidates include women who feel their breasts are too small, women who have experienced a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy, or women with breasts that do not match in size or shape. Breast augmentation is a common choice after pregnancy and breastfeeding, when breasts often lose their original and youthful look.

BREAST AUGMENTATION NYC – YOUR CONSULTATION
Breast augmentation surgery is an extremely personal and major decision. That’s why Dr. Tehrani will be there himself during your consultation for breast augmentation. During this consultation you will undergo a thorough medical examination and discuss why you want breast augmentation. If found to be a suitable candidate for surgery, he and his professional staff will help you decide the breast surgery most suited to your body and desired goals.
To make the most of your consultation, Dr. Tehrani suggest you do personal research beforehand. Here are 3 websites that are reliable and informative:
TYPES AND SHAPES OF BREAST IMPLANTS
Breast implants come in many shapes and sizes and have different fillings. You and Dr. Tehrani will select the option best suited for you.
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 feel possible. The breast implants are filled with saline or silicone gel. Saline is salt water, much like the fluid that makes up 70% of the human body. If the breast implant should leak and the saline is released, it can be safely absorbed by your body. Silicone gel-filled implants are FDA-approved and safe.
The implant shapes are generally round, oval, or anatomical. The surface of the implants can be smooth to the touch or textured. Dr. Tehrani will also discuss these breast augmentation options with you.
With the FDA approval of new breast implants, there are more breast augmentation choices than ever. Aristocrat Plastic Surgery and Medaesthetics has undergone a rigorous certification process to gain access to many breast implant options in Allergan’s INAMED® Matrix of breast implants for breast augmentation and reconstruction surgeries. INAMED implants are the first anatomical-shaped cohesive silicone gel products on the market.
Allergan also has a newly FDA-approved implant called NATRELLE INSPIRA™ – a silicone implant with a higher fill ratio, nearly 300 choices of sizes and shapes, and an exceptionally durable shell to decrease the risk of leakage. There are two varieties of INSPIRA implants – one with a more natural feel and one ultra-cohesive to prevent rippling.
We also offer Sientra’s silicone fifth-generation breast implants in both round and teardrop shapes, as well as IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. IDEAL implants are filled with saline but designed to have a more natural feel like silicone. They include lowered edges to contour to the chest wall, and several implant shells nested within one another. This internal structure reduces bouncing and movement of the saline filling. These additional options ensure you will get the best possible result from your breast augmentation surgery.
Dr. Tehrani is proud to be among the first board certified plastic surgeons in NYC to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT. This is a newly designed and exclusive option for patients who desire a breast implant with a natural feel like silicone but want the peace of mind that saline implants offer.
Although silicone implants are safe, some women worry about a “silent” rupture which can only be detected by an MRI. The IDEAL IMPLANT gives patients the confidence that the implants are still intact and, if there is a rupture, the saline will be safely absorbed by the body.
Traditional saline implants are not always an option for women who have a small amount of breast tissue and are determined to have a natural-feeling implant. This new shell series technology means women can have a saline filled implant with the natural feel of silicone. Breast Augmentation with an IDEAL IMPLANT can improve self-confidence, improved body image, and now, peace of mind.
BREAST AUGMENTATION NYC – WHAT TO EXPECT
Although some patients elect to stay the night, breast augmentation is usually an outpatient procedure. Your surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and lasts one to two hours.
In a breast augmentation, incisions can be placed under the natural crease of the breast or around the areoles that surround the nipples. Dr. Tehrani generally places the implants under the muscle, which he believes offers his patients a better result, including less risk of a scar capsule developing around the implant. A support garment will be placed around the breasts to assist healing.
Another technique is the Tuba Procedure. Dr. Tehrani will discuss incision and placement options with you prior to surgery, and make recommendations that are specific to your case.
BREAST AUGMENTATION NYC – RECOVERY
After your breast augmentation in NYC, you will experience some swelling, bruising, tightness, and soreness. We will provide you with a surgical bra that you must wear for a few weeks, as well as pain medication to make you more comfortable as you heal. We will also provide you with full post-op instructions for washing your stitches and when to come back to our office for follow up appointments.
SPEEDY RECOVERY WITH EXPAREL
At Aristocrat Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, we are always striving to provide our patients with the best experience possible. Whether you refer to this technique as “rapid” or “flash” recovery, it is gaining popularity for a number of reasons. Utilizing the speedy recovery injectable “EXPAREL” allows patients to significantly reduce the amount of pain they experience during the first 72 hours after surgery, when pain is at its peak. EXPAREL is a slow-release, non-opioid pain medicine that is injected into the surgical site during the operation to ensure a speedy recovery post-surgery. In the past, patients were restricted for up to 6 weeks after a breast augmentation. Speedy recovery EXPAREL injections allow for a seemingly painless transition between invasive surgery and full recovery, with minimal discomfort and downtime. While extreme pain is reduced, many patients can do without strong, addictive narcotics and instead opt for a combination of over-the-counter Ibuprofen and other anti-inflammatories. Since patients have better mobility immediately following surgery, they are capable of performing stretching exercises which helps to decrease muscle spasms in the chest wall, therefore reducing pain and the chance of blood clots. This allows patients to return back to their normal routine much quicker compared to the standard, multi-week recovery with prescribed pain medicine. Speedy recovery injections are available for patients undergoing gluteal implant, breast augmentation and/or abdominoplasty. Schedule a consultation today to find out more about breast augmentation with the speedy recovery injection, EXPAREL.
The Aspen Treatment
The ASPEN rehabilitation treatment can reduce bruising and swelling, decrease tightness around incisions, prevent capsular contraction after breast augmentation, and help maintain the appropriate shape and softness for breast implants. It is an excellent addition to your post-surgical recovery. Learn more about the Aspen treatment here.
INTRODUCING THE IDEAL IMPLANT- NEW TYPE OF SALINE IMPLANT
Clinically used since February of 2009, the IDEAL IMPLANT has been used for 502 breast augmentations nationwide. In a five-year follow up trial, both patient and surgeon satisfaction has been very high with low rates of capsular contracture.
If you are interested in Breast Augmentation using the IDEAL IMPLANT, please contact us at 212-439-9900 for our Manhattan office or at 516-498-9790 for our Great Neck office to schedule your complimentary consultation.
EXERCISE AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY
You need to be patient about returning to exercise after your breast augmentation. Your body will let you know more than anyone else when to get back and when to hold back.
It is important that you don’t start back too early, because the consequences could be serious. Your healing muscles could tear, causing internal bleeding, hematoma, or capsular contracture. When in doubt, error on the side of waiting during your breast augmentation recovery.
The rule of thumb is to wait at least 4 weeks before returning to light workouts, (i.e. slow-paced walks or stationary cycling). Dr. Tehrani can advise you during your follow up visits as well.
MASSAGING BREASTS AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY IN NYC
It is recommended your breast be massaged for 1-3 months after surgery. These implant displacement massages will keep the soft tissue around the breast implant open.
Massaging should prevent the soft tissue capsule from shrinking and pressing the breast implant out of shape. This is known as capsular contraction.
BREAST AUGMENTATION NYC – COMPLICATIONS
Before you decide on breast augmentation, you must calculate the results and risks associated with it. Dr. Tehrani will advise and inform as to any risks associated with your specific procedure.
Possible breast augmentation surgery risks include:
- Anesthesia risks
- Changes in nipple or breast sensation
- Poor scarring
- Faulty position of the implant
- Leakage or rupture
- Capsular contracture
- Fluid acclamation
- Wrinkling of the skin over the implant
- Persistent pain
- Possibility of revision surgery
WHAT TYPE OF BRA TO WEAR AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION IN NYC
Right after surgery you will be provided with a post-operative garment for support and healing. You will wear that for about a week.
After, a soft, comfortable bra, without under wires is desirable. Soft support will allow your implants to drop. After your implants settle, any bra you wish will suffice. In some cases, however, when the implants are positioned early on, a supportive bra will be recommended to hold the implants in place. This is common in reconstruction cases.
BREAST AUGMENTATION NYC – COST
Breast augmentation cost is a huge consideration for many patients. There isn’t any standard pricing for this procedure as the cost varies by implant type and other factors.
For more specific information about the cost of breast augmentation and available financing options, please contact our practice today. Call 212-439-9900 for our Manhattan office, or 516-498-9790 for our Great Neck office.
CHOOSING YOUR BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGEON
It is important that your plastic surgeon be qualified and have the right credentials and experience. They should be in good standing with the community and the medical industry. Their board certification, education, and satisfied customers should also be considered.
Don’t forget the support staff. Make sure they are professional, friendly, and caring. This will be the people to lean on during your recovery. Make sure you are comfortable with the entire team.
It is very important to do your research and visit with the doctor personally. It is important to visit the facility where the surgery will take place. Don’t rush! You should make the time to get well informed.
