Breast Augmentation & Implants in New York

The breasts are an important feature on a woman because they can represent femininity. When the breasts are undefined or irregularly shaped, a woman may not feel confident about herself and how her body looks. Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, is a procedure that can help a woman achieve the breasts she has always wanted.

Whether a woman has always had small, undefined breasts or has become unhappy with her breasts as a result of breast cancer, aging, or pregnancy, breast augmentation can be performed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. By using saline or silicone breast implants, Dr. Taranow can help a woman improve the appearance of her breasts. With so many advancements in plastic surgery technology, breast augmentation is a safe and effective option for women seeking breast enhancement.

Thinking About Having a Breast Augmentation?

What to Expect From the Procedure

Dr. Taranow will evaluate your natural body type and breasts to discuss the best options to help you achieve your breast augmentation goals.


  • Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
  • An incision is made either along the breast crease (inframammary), around the areola (periareolar), or through the armpit (transaxillary).
  • Depending on the patient’s preference and doctor’s recommendation, saline or silicone breast implants will be placed below the pectoral muscles (submuscular) or above the pectoral muscles and below the breast tissue (subglandular).
  • Incisions will be closed using sutures, skin adhesive, or surgical tape.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

A: Patients will experience some pain and discomfort during the first 24 hours. Swelling and bruising can last for several weeks. Most patients are comfortable returning to work in five to seven days. Strenuous activity should be avoided for three to four weeks.
A: The results from breast augmentation are meant to be long lasting. Many patients enjoy their results for many years; however, factors such as aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations can affect the original results from surgery. For the best outcome, it is important that patients follow post-surgical instructions and return for follow-up visits.
A: Minimal pain and discomfort are normal. Dr. Taranow will prescribe medications to alleviate any discomfort, aid in healing, and reduce the risk of infection.
A: Scarring will vary depending on the location of the incisions. For the most part, each incision option involves minimal scarring and discreet locations. Once residual swelling has subsided, incision lines will fade and become barely noticeable, if visible at all.
A: As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications with breast augmentation, such as:
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Implant leakage or rupture
  • Implant malposition
  • Pain
A: The cost of breast augmentation is influenced by many factors, including the breast implant type, incision location, and any associated fees. You will be provided with a customized quote for your procedure during your consultation.

Long time no see! I hope you’re doing well. I had a fantastic vacation and wanted to say thank you… It was the first time in my life that I was comfortable enough to go to the beach topless and feel really good about myself or wear some tops that I never would have before. It is a great feeling, so thank you Doc’!
