What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?

The immediate goal of surgery is to enlarge the breasts and improve their shape. For patients with significant asymmetry, breast augmentation can also help correct uneven breasts. While achieving these goals, patients experience an improved body image, boost in self-esteem, and the freedom to wear clothes they had avoided in the past. Here at Parker Center, we have noted a patient satisfaction rate after surgery of well over 95%.

But breast augmentation isn’t just for women hoping for a dramatic size increase. In recent years, we’ve seen a number of patients looking for a modest increase (sometimes even just one cup size!) with a greater focus on improved shape and overall appearance. The range of available breast implants has made it easier than ever to customize a look for you, whether you’re hoping to see a dramatic size increase or simply want to look a little more shapely in your clothing.

What Can Breast Augmentation Do?

It’s surprising to some patients just how versatile a procedure breast augmentation is. While breast augmentation can indeed help women with smaller but “normal” appearing breasts enjoy a boost in size, it’s also a great option for treating several common breast concerns, including:

  • Deflated breasts after weight loss or breastfeeding. Bringing a child in the world is a magical experience (and losing weight is something to be celebrated!), though these big life events can take a toll on your body. It’s common for women who have gone through pregnancy breast size changes and breastfeeding to experience breast deflation, where the upper pole of the breast noticeably lacks fullness. This same appearance can occur after significant weight loss. This can be corrected through breast augmentation alone or, in cases where breast ptosis (sagging) is also a concern, in conjunction with a breast lift.
  • Breast asymmetry. While it is completely natural and normal for one breast to be slightly differently shaped or sized, some women naturally have severely asymmetrical breasts that can make it difficult to find properly fitting bras or clothing or feel comfortable and confident. After a careful examination, Dr. Parker is able to correct breast asymmetry with breast augmentation by choosing custom implants for each breast to create a uniform, symmetrical result.
  • Mild to moderate breast sagging. Did you know that a breast lift may not always be needed to correct mild cases of breast ptosis? Using a special, dual plane breast augmentation technique, Dr. Parker can create a breast pocket and place breast implants in such a way that they improve breast shape and size as well as correct mild instances of sagging without surgically lifting the breast tissue.

What Is the Best Type of Breast Implant?

There is a myriad of breast implant choices to personalize your new look. We’ll help you understand all of the options during your consultation, which will include a sizing session and virtual imaging! Dr. Parker is very experienced at placing saline and silicone gel breast implants. These days, silicone gel implants are preferred by most women for their softer and more natural feel.

Choosing the Right Breast Implant Size

Your physical characteristics will often dictate which implant shape is best for you—and we use 3D imaging to help you visualize your results. In terms of size, the breast increases approximately one cup size for each 200cc of implant. Most of our patients end up choosing implants ranging in size from 200 to 400 cc.

Size selection varies with patient desire, chest size, and the amount of breast tissue present. Don’t want anyone to know you have implants? Dr. Parker specializes in natural-appearing augmentations.

Beautiful Breast Augmentation Isn’t Just About Size—Shape Is Key.

We will help you see which size, shape, and profile of implant meets your goals with a Sizing and Shaping Session. This part of your consultation allows you to “try on a look” and get a better idea of your appearance after breast augmentation surgery. What may surprise you is that most patients can achieve a beautifully shaped breast with round implants! That’s because Dr. Parker customizes his technique for creating the implant pocket and placing the implant to each patient’s needs; these factors, plus your implant choice, work together in creating a beautiful breast.

How Much Does a Breast Augmentation (Boob Job) Cost?

At Parker Center in New Jersey, breast augmentation costs approximately $9,000. At your consultation, we will provide a personalized, all-inclusive price quote including surgeon’s fees, anesthesia, and operating room costs, your breast implants (silicone implants cost a little more than saline), and our signature Rapid Recovery program. We can also go over financing options and any specials we are offering.

Which Incision Is Best for Breast Augmentation?

Breast implants are inserted through small incisions that can be placed under the breast, around the lower half of the areola, or through the armpit.

Dr. Parker will consider a number of factors when deciding which option is best for you, including:

  • Which do you feel you’ll be least likely to notice?
  • Which will best allow Dr. Parker to achieve your goals?
  • Which is least likely to hamper breastfeeding (if you hope to breastfeed in the future)?

Regardless of where the incisions are placed, they usually flatten, fade, and become inconspicuous after they heal.

What Is the Best Placement for Breast Implants?

While it’s easy to get the impression that breast implant placement is a choice between “over the muscle” or “under the muscle,” there’s a little more to it than that. The fact is that implant placement is personalized to your needs.

Dr. Parker typically uses a partial submuscular, dual plane breast augmentation technique that allows him to place the implant more precisely for a beautiful, natural breast shape.

Implant placement options are under the breast tissue or under the chest muscle

What Is Involved in Breast Augmentation Surgery?

In Dr. Parker’s well-trained, experienced hands, breast augmentation is a straightforward outpatient procedure with a high safety profile. At Parker Center, your breast augmentation surgery will take place in the comfort and privacy of our fully certified, onsite ambulatory surgical center. You will be asleep during the procedure, with general anesthesia administered by one of our board-certified anesthesiologists.

The procedure takes approximately 1 to 2 hours, depending on the complexity of your procedure (i.e., is there significant asymmetry to address, are you also getting a breast lift, etc.). After spending a brief period in our recovery room after surgery, you will be able to go home.

“Absolutely wonderful! Dr. Parker is very professional and makes you feel very comfortable. The staff is very thorough answering any question you may have for your procedure. I had a breast augmentation done here in 2008 and I’m so happy to have chosen this place. After my surgery they really took care of me.”

An Important Advancement: The Keller Funnel

The Keller Funnel is a soft, sterile, cone-shaped device made from nylon that makes the placement or insertion of silicone gel implants easier. It allows Dr. Parker to use the smallest possible incision—whether inframammary, periareolar, or transaxillary—while achieving proper implant placement and reducing complication rates. Dr. Parker is very experienced in its use. Studies suggest the use of the Keller Funnel reduces the risk of complications, including capsular contracture and the potential for long-term implant rupture.

Can Breast Augmentation Correct Tuberous Breasts?

Tuberous breast correction is often more complicated than breast augmentation. Often referred to colloquially as “snoopy breasts” or tubular breasts for their elongated appearance, tuberous breasts can be difficult to treat without specialized techniques. To correct tuberous breasts, Dr. Parker can use a variety of surgical techniques to reshape and fill out the breasts. Most often, Dr. Parker uses a combination of fibrous tissue release with the placement of breast implants to reduce the conical appearance of tuberous breasts. The diversity of breast implant shapes, sizes, and materials available today enables him to customize your surgical plan to correct tuberous breasts and provide you with beautiful, shapely results.

What Is Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?

While everyone heals differently, most of our breast augmentation patients are back to work within the first week. Showering and light activities are permitted the day after surgery, and we encourage patients to get up for small periods of time to move around and keep blood flowing.

All sutures used are dissolvable, so you won’t need to come to the office to have them removed. Pain is rarely an issue, but some post-operating swelling and soreness are to be expected. Some patients even feel good enough to go out to dinner the day after surgery, while others prefer to wait a few days before socializing.
