Breast Augmentation in Brooklyn, New York

Women considering breast augmentation surgery with Brooklyn plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo will need to know the facts about the surgical procedure. Breast augmentation, also referred to as breast enhancement, mammoplasty or breast implants surgery, is one of the most frequently performed procedures today.

For most women, deciding to undergo breast augmentation is a major step. However, most women find that breast augmentation boosts their self-esteem, body image and libido, making it a step in the right direction.

Scar Less Breast Enlargement

Once you have made the decision to undergo breast augmentation, the next step is to determine which type of implant is best for you. There are two types of implants: saline and silicone. Both saline and silicone implants have shells made of a silicone material. The main difference between the two types of implants is what the shell is filled with. Saline implants are sterile salt water (saline) infused. The implants are inserted empty into the breasts, and then filled once inside to achieve the size you desire. Silicone implants come pre-filled with silicone gel, and then inserted into the breasts. In the initial consultation, Dr. Vitolo will discuss aesthetic goals with you, and make recommendations to best meet your needs.

Saline Implants

Saline implants offer a number of appealing benefits. For instance, the volume of the implant may be adjusted for each breast during and after the surgery. Dr. Vitolo’s unique scar-less technique allows for easy insertion into the body through a minimal incision. This makes the healing period more comfortable for you. Saline implants tend to be a popular choice for breast augmentation as they are safe and effective.


Silicone Implants

Silicone implants, on the other hand, typically require larger incisions than saline implants.  One risk to consider is that leakage detection is more difficult than with saline implants and require an MRI to detect a leak.

Gummy Bear Implants

The new “Gummy Bear” breast implants are also available. The implants got there name because when cut in half, they retain there shape (much like a gummy bear). These new silicone gel implants are form-stable and keep there shape. If you are interested in silicone breast implants, Dr. Vitolo would be happy to discuss the benefits and risks with you in person.
