Breast Augmentation Before & Afters
WHAT IS BREAST AUGMENTATION?
A Breast Augmentation, also known as breast enlargement or enhancement, is a surgical procedure that involves the insertion of a silicone prosthesis, or implant, under the breast tissue or muscle to increase the size and shape of the breasts. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and takes one hour to complete. An incision is made in the crease under the breast, and a saline or silicone gel implant is placed through the incision. There are different benefits to each implant type depending on the type of results you are seeking. Reflections Medical by Dr. Michael Fiorillo surgeons work alongside each patient to craft results that meet their specific goals for the size and shape of their breasts.
Sculpted to Your Goals
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BREAST AUGMENTATION?
With a Breast Augmentation Pearl River patients can expect multiple benefits such as:
Larger, Fuller Breasts:
Breast augmentation is designed to provide enhanced volume to the breasts and can consist of various implant materials and sizes to achieve each patient’s desired goals. The results include increased curves and larger breasts.
Better Body Proportions:
A common concern for women is their uneven breasts, which can be resolved through Breast Augmentation. Each breast implant can contain a different amount of material, which will level out the breast sizes for improved symmetry and balance.
After undergoing our Pearl River Breast Augmentation, patients report feeling more comfortable in their bodies. Clothing should fit better with your desired cleavage. It is typical to feel a boost in your self-esteem after breast augmentation surgery.
I always hated the way my breasts looked and I could have never imagined that this kind of transformation was possible. I am just blown away with what you have done for me. You are an amazing doctor. You have given me a beautiful result and a new confidence and comfort with my body that I never had before and I am very grateful. Thank you so very much. I love my look!

Understanding Your Surgery
YOUR BREAST AUGMENTATION OPTIONS AND PROCEDURE
Overall, Breast Augmentation can help improve self-confidence and self-esteem for those unhappy with their breasts’ size or shape. It’s important, however, to understand the procedure’s risks and benefits and work closely with a qualified and experienced surgeon to achieve the desired outcome. General anesthesia is administered to ensure a safe, comfortable procedure. The entire surgery takes up to one hour. During your initial consultation, you can discuss your personal preferences and any concerns you may have with Dr. Fiorillo. Implant types may consist of saline, silicone, or a highly cohesive silicone (known as “gummy bear” implants), which are the preferred implant material due to their natural look and feel. Breast implants can have a smooth or textured surface. The three popular FDA-approved implant brands we use are Allergan (Natrelle®), Mentor®, and Sientra®.
We use the inframammary technique for Breast Augmentation, which involves an incision along the line where the breast connects to the chest. This location is inconspicuous and allows access to the underlying tissue for precise breast implant placement. Once the breast tissues are accessed through the incisions, the implants are placed into a pocket created either under the pectoral muscle (submuscular placement) or under the breast tissue but over the muscle (subglandular placement). The benefits of each type of implant placement will be discussed during your consultation.
Fulfill Your Goals
BREAST AUGMENTATION RESULTS
A breast augmentation can maintain results for over ten years. All types of breast implants, including silicone, saline, and fat transfer, are considered safe and long-lasting. Expect the benefits of your breast enlargement treatment to last at least a decade, with some lasting up to 20 years.
BREAST AUGMENTATION RECOVERY AND AFTERCARE
Recovery time can vary depending on the individual, but most patients can return to normal activities within a week or two. However, strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks to allow for proper healing. After your procedure, bandaging of the breasts will be used to aid in the healing process.
A surgical compression garment or support bra should also be worn to promote healing. Most patients feel tired after their Breast Augmentation procedure and experience mild discomfort. Your chest may feel sore and tight, and you may notice some bruising, swelling, and tenderness. After one week, most patients can resume daily activities, and stitches are removed within ten days. Strenuous exercise and lifting are not recommended for one to two weeks. It can take some patients up to three weeks to feel back to normal, so it is important to rest and follow your post-surgical instructions to ensure a comfortable recovery.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Does Breast Augmentation leave any scars?
Scarring should be minimal and concealed on the underside of your breasts. Incision lines tend to start fading after two months and continue to lighten over the next year. You should avoid exposing the incisions to direct sunlight to prevent sunburn or more visible scarring.
What does a Breast Augmentation cost?
The cost of breast augmentation can range between $6,999 and $10,000, which includes all pre- and post-operative office visits, anesthesia fees, operating room fee, surgeon’s fee, and the implants. Your final price will be calculated during your consultation prior to your breast augmentation procedure.
Is Breast Augmentation painful?
Mild discomfort can be managed by taking prescription medication and resting. It is essential that you follow the post-surgical instructions provided by our team.
Am I an ideal candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Candidates for breast augmentation surgery should be in good health and have realistic expectations of their outcome. Before undergoing Breast Augmentation, younger patients should have breasts that are fully developed, and patients who have given birth should be finished breastfeeding.
Can fat grafting be used for Breast Augmentation?
Fat grafting (fat transfer) alone cannot provide significant volume for Breast Augmentation. However, some patients desire fat grafting combined with their implants for breast augmentation. Fat cells are removed from an area of the body with excess fat, such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, or abdomen, using liposuction. The fat is purified and then injected into the breasts for subtle, natural enhancement.
What results can I expect?
Breast augmentation can address small breasts, breasts that have lost volume over time, and uneven breast shapes or sizes. However, it cannot address significant breast sagging like a breast lift can. Discuss your concerns during your initial consultation with Dr. Fiorillo, and we will provide details about what results are expected after your procedure.
What are the possible risks of undergoing Breast Augmentation?
Complications associated with breast augmentation are uncommon and usually minimal. Some risks may include capsular contracture, change in nipple sensation, infection around the implant, swelling and pain, change in milk production (if you have nursed a baby within a year prior to the procedure), and implant rupture (whether as a result of injury or the normal compression and movement of your breasts). During your consultation and physical examination, you’ll discuss the risks and benefits of Breast Augmentation and your specific situation. Following your pre-operative and post-operative care instructions will significantly reduce the risks involved with this surgery.
