Whether you’ve wanted larger breasts for years or you’re simply in search of a lasting way to restore fullness after pregnancy or weight loss, breast augmentation with implants at our Latham, NY, practice in Albany County can provide the results you want. Breast augmentation consistently ranks as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country, and its appeal continues to endure.
When performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Rockmore, breast augmentation with implants creates results that look and feel natural. Clothes will fit better, and it is no longer a chore to go bathing suit shopping. You can combine breast augmentation with a breast lift or as part of a Mommy Makeover to produce optimal results.
Best known as a breast augmentation specialist, Dr. Rockmore has performed more than 3,000 breast procedures. Each breast augmentation is completely individualized, and Dr. Rockmore uses a 3-dimensional approach for consistently beautiful and natural-looking breasts. There are more implants available than ever before, allowing us to customize each procedure. Start your journey with a personal consultation with Dr. Rockmore.
Implants come in many sizes and shapes, and choosing the right implant is a source of concern and anxiety among many women. While many doctors and websites focus solely on implant volume, Dr. Rockmore offers a different approach to implant selection to help create the look that you are hoping to achieve. This enables him to match the width of the implant to the width of your chest and breasts, avoiding creating excess space between the breasts for full and natural-looking results.
In the hands of a qualified plastic surgery specialist, such as Dr. Rockmore, both saline- and silicone-filled implants are safe and have the potential to create incredible results. Saline implants are often more appropriate for women who are less than 22 years old. Silicone implants have durable silicone shells that are filled with a gel of various degrees of cohesiveness. The most cohesive implants are often referred to as ``gummy bear`` implants. Cohesive silicone gel sticks together and does not leave the breast pocket if a rupture occurs.
This refers to the degree that implants stick out, or project, from the chest. Although it may seem straightforward, projection actually has more to do with your existing anatomy and your desired results. The choice of profile is determined by the desired look of the breasts. Higher profile implants have more superior fullness and look more “implanted” while moderate profile implants can look more natural, making them better matches for women with larger frames and wider chests.
Dr. Rockmore begins the surgery by making an incision, and the area will depend on your specific needs and body. Common incision locations include inframammary and periareolar approaches. Inframammary: a thin line that traces the fold beneath your breast. Periareolar: along the lower border of the areola, where the dark skin meets the lighter skin. Each incision type comes with its own advantages. In your consultation, Dr. Rockmore works with you to help you decide which option is best for you and your body.
You can expect to feel some discomfort and grogginess immediately after your breast augmentation with Dr. Rockmore. Because the surgery is an outpatient procedure, you’ll be able to return home after a brief period of observation. You can shower the day after surgery, and you can drive within 2 to 3 days, if comfortable. With the help of prescribed pain medication, most patients feel well enough to return to work and other light activities in less than a week.
Your first postoperative appointment is usually a week after your breast augmentation. At this time, Dr. Rockmore checks your breasts to ensure everything is progressing as planned. Office visits are then scheduled for 1 month and 6 months later, though this can be minimized for his patients traveling from a distance. While this is the usual schedule, Dr. Rockmore is happy to see you at any time during your recovery to answer questions or address concerns.
