Breast augmentation remains one of the most highly requested plastic surgery procedures among patients of various ages and backgrounds, whether the patient is considering enlarging underdeveloped breasts to enhance their figure, or looking to restore lost volume due to age or pregnancy. Dr. Robert Goldstein and Dr. Brandon Elnekaveh regularly perform breast augmentation procedures.
Breast Augmentation Overview
Women most commonly seek breast augmentation as a means of enlarging their breasts with the use of implants, or are looking to possibly undergo a breast lift to regain firmness and lift their bust line. Increasingly regarded as a safe and effective cosmetic solution to the many women who feel they have an inadequate-sized bust, breast augmentation in New York is on-the-rise and the specialists at Bronx Plastic Surgery have many years of experience in this field.
Undergoing breast augmentation may sound intimidating, however, the procedure, when performed by skilled surgeons, should heal in a timely fashion and yield terrific results. The professionals at Bronx Plastic Surgery will guide you through the process, from consultation to recovery.
Breast Augmentation Myths
Breast surgery can be a major undertaking. If you’re considering Bronx breast augmentation, you may want to do some thorough research to make sure you are comfortable with your decision to have surgery. But with all of the stigmas out there, how do you know what is fact and what is fiction?
There’s one “correct” way to get breast implant surgery.
Actually, many options for this procedure exist today, including a variety of ways to ensure natural results and minimal visible scarring. The experts at Bronx Plastic Surgery are pros at discussing the best methods for each individual on a case-by-case basis.
Bigger implants aren’t always better.
Some patients feel as long as they are willing to take part in breast augmentation surgery, they might as well get the largest implants they can. However, what works for one patient may not work for another so implant size should be considered in proportion to your own body and desired results.
Recovery is always long and excruciating.
While varying degrees of bruising may be expected, recovering from breast augmentation is not always as painful and drawn out as it may seem. Nowadays, many patients can even forgo the drainage tubes and old-fashioned pain medications to use more modern methods of healing more quickly after surgery.
The level of cc’s in the breast implant is the same size it will be on your body.
Many have been told that the level of cc’s in an implant translates to the desired cup size of your post-surgery breasts. However, the cc’s will result in different sized breasts for different patients. For example, someone with more existing breast tissue before surgery may end up with larger-looking breasts even though the implant is only a small level of cc’s.

While it’s helpful to discuss examples of your desired results with your doctor, it is impossible to duplicate breast augmentation results from one patient to the next, as each client has different needs and their body will react differently. A qualified expert like the surgeons at Bronx Plastic Surgery can guide you toward the best options for you.
Breast Augmentation Recovery
One of the most important questions on many patients’ minds is, “how long will it take me to recover from breast augmentation surgery?” At Bronx Plastic Surgery, we follow a holistic approach to your surgery as well as your breast augmentation recovery. We always treat our clients with the best of care, beginning with the consultation and lasting through to your post-surgery recovery. While breast augmentation surgery or breast implant surgery may be intimidating to some clients, innovations in cosmetic surgery have reduced the recovery time significantly for this procedure in recent years.
What to Expect After Your Breast Augmentation Surgery
Plan on 1-5 days of rest and recovery following your breast augmentation procedure. Each patient recovers at their own pace and for varied periods of time. In general, a patient commonly can go back to work in a few days after their breast augmentation procedure, but any strenuous activities need to be avoided for at least three weeks or more during the recovery period. It can take up to six months for the effects of the procedure to be fully realized, although some patients may see results in a shorter period of time. Recovery from this procedure should not be rushed. Should you have concerns or questions during your recovery period, please call our office, and our staff can provide assistance.
What to Expect:
- Some bruising around the breast area
- Swelling around the breast area
- Pain and discomfort in the breast area
- Possible nausea
- Possible constipation if too much pain medication is taken
Set up a quiet recovery area at home so that you limit your movement and get plenty of rest.
Set up a small table near your recovery area so that snacks, drinks, and medication are readily available.
Take the prescribed dosage of your pain medicine, no more, no less.
Wear loose clothing.
Drink plenty of fluids.
Sleep on your back for 2 weeks
Return for your scheduled follow-up.
Don’t sleep on your stomach during recovery.

Avoid getting your wounds wet for the first couple of days. You may take a shower but no bath for a minimum of 2 weeks.
