Breast augmentation surgery helps our patients make a curvaceous bust line, improve their confidence, and overall body shape. Our breast implant procedure can restore volume in smaller breasts by enlarging them to an optimal size by putting a type of implant in each breast. Lack of breast volume can be from childbearing, weight loss, aging and more.
Many of these people start to consider breast augmentation in Paramus NJ. Are your breasts flat or deflated-looking? Are your breasts of noticeably different sizes? Are they starting to lose their battle with gravity and beginning to sag? These sorts of issues can have a very real impact on your self-confidence, your love life, and even your general happiness. And no matter what you do, the older you get, the more the problem progresses, which is why many opt for a breast augmentation.
Nothing can change the genetics of an inherited smaller bust line. Plus, all “natural” bust enhancers are either temporary, wildly overstate their effectiveness, or flat-out don’t work – that’s why none are approved by the FDA. Your best bet for long-lasting larger breasts with a natural look and feel is surgical breast augmentation.

Your breast augmentation consultation in Paramus NJ can actually begin online before coming in for your full consultation through Zwivel, a private and secure platform linked to our practice website. By clicking the Zwivel link on our website, you can privately tell the doctors your concerns and desired procedures, discuss your budget and timeframe, and even upload photos and videos.
During your full consultation, your breast anatomy will be assessed, along with your medical history, as well as your personal, aesthetic goals for the implant surgery. With the help of Dr. Breslow or Dr. Greany, you’ll need to decide on the type of breast implant you want, which incision pattern is best for you, and the placement method you would prefer. We can take measurements and consider the particular breast shape that you’re looking for, as well as the size of your implants, whether it’s a 36a, 36c or a 32d.
As the name implies, these implants are filled with saline, a sterile saltwater solution. This kind of implant is filled after it is inserted into the body, allowing a minor adjustment in size during your surgery to achieve the aesthetic outcome you want with these saline implants. In the rare event of rupture and deflation, the saline can be easily absorbed by the body unlike gel implants.
That being said, these implants may not be the best option for women with naturally smaller breasts, thin skin or little breast fat. This is because it could increase the risk of visible rippling below the surface of your breast tissue or skin.
More closely matching the look and feel of natural breast tissue than saline implants, silicone implants are much less prone to visible rippling below the skin. This type of implant is more pliable because the cohesive silicone gel feels much like a soft “gummy bear”. Ask our plastic surgery specialist about how to get gummy bear implants, also known as gumdrop implants. Other types of breast implants take fat deposits from other parts of your body to initiate a fat transfer to your breasts.
The incision location is made around the outer edge of the areola, along the lower border and results in barely visible scarring, since it is camouflaged well by the darker coloring of the areola. Unfortunately, it might not be an option for women with smaller areolae. The ability to breastfeed after the procedure may be compromised, so if you’re concerned about that you may want to consider another incision placement.
This incision location is made horizontally, within the natural crease where the breast meets the body. This crease is known as the inframammary fold. While a short scar results, this incision placement makes positioning of the implants easier.
A short incision is made in the armpit, where the resulting scar remains well hidden. It is considered a good option for the placement of saline implants. However, it can make the positioning of the implant more difficult.
This involves placing the implant below the breast gland tissue, but on top of the chest muscles. This placement may not be ideal for saline implants because of their known issues with visible rippling and wrinkling, which can be a concern for women with thin skin or too little fatty breast tissue to properly cover and support the implants.
In this placement method the implant is positioned below the breast gland tissue and partially below the chest muscles. Also known as dual plane, this option comes with a slightly more intense recovery period, but may be the best choice to help cover the implants properly.
Studies show that it can also reduce the chances of a small number of complications, including capsular contracture (a hardening and tightening of the scar tissue around the implant that can lead to a rupture).
If you’re not sure which one to get, speak with our breast augmentation surgeon to learn more about how your body frame, breast size and shape should all be taken into consideration, as well as your desired implant size.
Unlike other, more generalized surgeries such as abdominoplasty, a breast augmentation procedure is highly customizable to your own breasts’ anatomy and personal goals of the implants. The details of your specific breast implant surgery will be based on the options you and your plastic surgeon will have discussed during your consultation. In all cases, the procedure will be performed at The Saddle River Valley Surgical Center.
The exact length of the breast augmentation surgery varies depending on the type of implant and technique employed, but it usually lasts no more than one to three hours, and doesn’t require an overnight stay. You’ll be able to go back home after a short period of observation under the dedicated care of our staff right after you get your implants. Although we provide a comfortable room in which you can recover, most of our breast augmentation patients appreciate the fact that they can return to their home on the same day as their surgery.
While you may notice some swelling in the weeks following your operation of breast implants, our post-operative instructions will help you speed up the natural healing process. Since our primary concern is your safety and satisfaction, we also like to take things one step further by scheduling several post-op appointments. These allow us to keep a keen eye on your healing, as well as address any concerns you may have about your implants. Our treatment plan after breast augmentations are the best in Bergen County.
Your first follow-up appointment will be a day or two after your surgery, with a PA or nurse. Dr. Breslow will then see you a week later, a month later, 3 months later, and finally one year after your surgery. You can set additional follow-up appointments after a year, and until you’re completely comfortable with your results and experience.
If you have any bruising, discomfort, soreness that last longer than expected during your healing, or any other weird symptoms, our plastic surgeon is only a phone call away. If you have any adverse affects to the medication afterwards, especially during bedside manner, you can contact your doctor or our staff and we’ll help you as our patient.
The beauty of breast implants is that they still look great as you age. The aging process isn’t easy, but your figure and self-image of yourself will be higher with breast implants.
Before considering breast implants if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you should ask your doctor about whether you should hold off.
1. Before you even come in for your breast surgery, try to make sure your life for the next few weeks will be as simple as possible.
Make your meals in advance. Bring things down from high shelves so you won’t strain yourself trying to reach them. If you feel like it will bother you during your recovery, clean the house before your surgery. Lay out your clothes ahead of time, and make sure to choose shirts that don’t have to be pulled over your head. You’ll appreciate the effort later.
2. Try to massage your new implants every 2 hours while you’re awake as you recover, if we recommend this to you.
Effectively moving your new implants around as the surrounding tissue heals helps to keep the scar tissue capsule that forms as generous as possible, minimizing the chances of significant contracture and a rupture.
3. You’ll need to sleep with your head elevated for 2 weeks (a beach chair works great), and on your back for 6 weeks.
If you find a beach chair to be too uncomfortable to sleep in, you can sleep in bed; just be sure to pile several pillows under your head, and at least 1 or 2 under your knees. This position helps prevent unnecessary swelling.
4. After 6 weeks you can start using silicone sheeting or scar cream.
Your breast incisions should be fully closed before you start doing this. These products are available at our office: our staff can advise you on which ones to use, depending on the incision pattern.
5. Stay positive! It may be a cliché, but it’s a cliché for a reason.
Your state of mind can have a profound impact on how your body handles the stress of breast augmentation surgery and recovery from breast implants — even scientific studies have shown that thinking positively helps! A positive attitude is an important part of any speedy recovery.
Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, and with good reason! Our Bergen County New Jersey breast augmentation patients are consistently satisfied with the procedure’s ability to create or restore the breasts to a firm, full, youthful and natural feel and shape.
Once fully recovered, our patients love their new bust line, and so will you! You’ll feel confident wearing clothes that show off your new cleavage, enjoy a boost in self-esteem, and have the knowledge that you look as good as you’ve always wanted.
