New York City breast augmentation involves the use of saline, silicone, gummy bear, IDEAL or composite breast augmentation to help women achieve their aesthetic goals. These implants come in different sizes and shapes such as tear-drop, or round and with textured and smooth surfaces to fit any woman’s breasts and body type. Women can choose from these options to get a tailor-made solution. Composite breast augmentation combines implants with fat transfer to provide a softer and more natural look and feel. It can also create a natural-appearing cleavage.

Plastic surgeons in NYC use different types of incisions and techniques to place implants. Your plastic surgeon will decide on the right incision option for you based on considerations such as body type, quality and amount of breast tissue, implant type, size, and placement, personal preferences for scar location, and your expectations.

However, women considering breast augmentation need to make sure that they considering this procedure for themselves not for pleasing others. “Breast augmentation is a deeply personal procedure, and it’s important that you’re doing it for yourself and not for someone else, even if that person has offered to pay for it. Patient satisfaction is high, specifically when they want the procedure themselves” says ASPS.

NYC breast augmentation has always been popular and RealSelf’s recent findings indicate that it will likely continue to retain its leadership in the cosmetic treatments for women.
