Breast augmentation in Manhattan can help women achieve a newfound level of self-confidence. Dr. Espinoza understands that the decision to undergo breast enhancement is personal, and each woman’s reason for the procedure is unique. He works with each patient to understand their goals for the procedure and aims to exceed their expectations.
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure and takes roughly 2 hours to perform. You will be under IV sedation, ensuring you will remain comfortable and in a twilight sleep for the duration of the procedure. If you combine your breast augmentation with a breast lift, you may require general anesthesia.
The exact steps for inserting the implant will vary based on your anatomy and the type of implant you choose. The incision can be placed at the breast crease or around the areola. In both locations, your scar will be well-concealed.
Through the incision, Dr. Espinoza can create a pocket below the breast tissue or pectoral muscle for the implant. Once the implant is placed inside your breast, it is centered, and the incisions are closed using stitches.
Once the surgery is complete, gauze bandages or other dressings may be applied over the incisions. You will also be given a special sports bra to wear during the healing process that closes in the front.
