Breast Augmentation


Breast Augmentation


Breast augmentation is one of the most sought after procedures by women who wish to enhance their womanly figure…

… which, of course, includes perky, well-rounded, full breasts.

Breast Augmentation with Dr. Lorenc in NYC

Not all women develop perfectly sized breasts. And even if you are blessed “genetically” with perfect breasts, pregnancy and breastfeeding can dramatically change their appearance, making a breast augmentation procedure a popular option to restore your figure.

Dr. Lorenc is a board-certified and world-renowned cosmetic surgeon who has been performing breast augmentations, breast lifts, breast reduction, and corrective surgery for botched breast implants in NYC for over 30 years.

Why Choose Breast Augmentation

The most common reasons women choose to undergo breast augmentation is to:

  • Create a more attractive bust line when breasts are too small
  • Restore volume to the breasts after breastfeeding or weight loss
  • Correct uneven breast size or shape
  • Reconstruct the breasts after mastectomy or botched breast surgery

About Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, or mammoplasty, is a safe and effective surgical procedure to enhance the size of the breasts and dramatically reshape the bust line.

Fat transfer to the breasts is also a viable option for breast augmentation, especially for women seeking a more holistic or natural approach to increasing the size of the breasts.

The 3 main areas most women think about when choosing breast augmentation are breast implant size, type of implant, and time of recovery. However, it is also important to learn about placement, profile, style of implants and the technique used to perform the implantation.

Breast Implant Options

Breast Implant Size

During your consultation, Dr. Lorenc, will help you decide on the perfect implant size. The truth is, there is no such thing as a “cup size,” when it comes to figuring out your ideal implant size. It’s not as easy as choosing a “C-cup.” For one, silicone and saline implants are actually measured by cubic centimeters, “cc’s.”

To help you decide, you’ll go over various breast implant sizes and before and after pictures until you find the right fit. Patients love working with Dr. Lorenc, because he takes the time to truly understand what you are looking for. He then offers suggestions to help you decide on the exact shape and size for your body.

You’re in good hands with Dr. Lorenc. As one of the most sought after plastic surgeons in NYC, he can answer all of your questions about choosing the perfect implant shape as well. While some women prefer round implants, others find teardrop-shaped implants to look more natural. The choice is yours!

Types of Breast Implants

There are two types of implants that are FDA approved and safe to use for breast augmentation: silicone implants and saline implants. Both implants have an outer shell made of silicone. The difference lies in what they are filled with. The silicone implant comes pre-filled with a silicone gel while the saline implant is filled with saline (salt water) at the time of the implant procedure.

Once implanted, equally sized silicone and saline implants look the same. However, saline implants are softer resulting in a more natural breast-like feel.

Breast Augmentation Techniques

A common concern among women who are considering a breast augmentation is scarring. Dr. Lorenc offers 3 breast implantation techniques that result in scars that are either hidden or hardly visible.

These techniques involve hiding or tucking the incision:

  • in the underarm
  • along the areola (near the border of darker skin around the nipple)
  • underneath the breast

During your consultation, you will learn the pros and cons of each technique and discuss with Dr. Lorenc about the right choice for your body that will give you the best results.

To ensure minimal scarring and a short recovery period, the procedure is performed endoscopically.

Dr. Lorenc is an innovator and teaches other doctors how to perform some of the most popular cosmetic procedures used today, along with performing countless successful breast augmentations.

It’s no wonder women all over the world flock to his New York office for breast augmentations.

Breast Implant Placement

Every women’s body is unique. That’s why Dr. Lorenc does a thorough job of going through all of your options so you can pick the perfect placement to highlight your silhouette.

A popular option is to place implants directly under the pectoralis, or chest muscle. It is also referred to as a submuscular placement.

Patients love how natural their results look this way and you’re far less likely to spot the implant.

Over time, some clients may find their implants become harder; we believe the hardness is associated with scarring that can form if you do not insert the implant underneath the pectoralis. A submuscular implant also makes it much easier for medical professionals to view breast tissue during routine mammograms.

What’s the biggest trade-off concerning placing implants underneath the muscle? Rarely, some patients notice that the implant will move occasionally when they flex their pectoral muscles. It’s so infrequent and subtle, you may only notice it without clothing.

Regardless of the trade-offs, women across the world are impressed with their breast augmentation results. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lorenc to find out what your body could look like after surgery.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Dr. Lorenc will go over specific instructions for you to follow after your breast augmentation.

Here are some general guidelines so you know what to expect.

  • An endoscopic breast augmentation is a low risk procedure, thus it is an outpatient procedure
  • As a precaution, we recommend that you arrange to have a friend stay with you on your first night after surgery. You’ll want an adult around
  • Remember, Dr. Lorenc prescribes pain medication for the first 2 to 3 days, in the event you’re experiencing any discomfort
  • If you have a traditional office job or a position that does not require a lot of physical movement, you can return to work around 5 days after your breast augmentation procedure
  • Your recovery is a chance for you to relax. Take the first night to get some rest and use an ice pack around your cleavage area if necessary
  • You should avoid any strict physical activity for the first 10 days
  • You can gradually incorporate activities like exercising and get back to aerobics exercises after 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, you can also book a vacation, and take selfies with your new sexy figure
