Body Builders are unique individuals, with bodies and physiques that can be challenging for plastic surgeons. Breast Augmentation for Body Builders requires careful evaluation and examination, leading to a solid surgical plan to maximize the results. These individuals have incredibly chiseled bodies that magnify any imperfections after surgery. I have been performing
Breast Augmentation for Body Builders in NYC for over 20 years, and I possess the experience and expertise to navigate the intricate path to achieve the best possible result for these unique athletes.
The consultation process(plan to spend at least one hour), includes an in-depth discussion about your desires with regard to size, shape and dimensions of your breasts after Breast Augmentation Surgery for Body Builders. It is the surgeon’s task to explain all aspects of the operation, the pros and cons, and most importantly, the concept of realistic expectations with regard to your postoperative result. I ask each patient to bring photographs demonstrating the size and shape of the breasts that she desires, so I can understand exactly what she is looking for.
I use various techniques to achieve this goal, including the process of choosing assorted sized breast implants and placing them in brassieres covered by T-shirts, to give her an idea of what she will look like in clothing after surgery with different sized breast implants. I prefer to meet a second time with each patient prior to surgery to assure complete understanding of the her desires from her Breast Augmentation operation.
There are 3 possible types of incisions for this operation; directly below the nipple, in the crease below the breast, or in the armpit region. The implants may be saline or silicone, round or shaped, smooth or textured. They can be placed above or below the chest muscle under the breasts. The size of the individual’s breasts and the Body Builder’s anatomy dictate the optimal location of implant placement. I am comfortable with all of these incisions and approaches, and I use all types and shapes of implants. I select implants to tailor the operation to the Body Builder’s desires, anatomy and body type. Nearly all breast tissue may be visualized in mammograms with the implants under the muscle; slightly less so when over the muscle, but breast imaging techniques and technology have improved to such a degree, that most radiologists are extremely comfortable imaging patients with breast implants.
If you are a Body Builder, and have concerns about the size of your breasts, especially in relation to the girth of the rest of your muscular body and are troubled about asymmetry because of smaller breasts, then Breast Augmentation may be an option for you. This type of surgery can alleviate those concerns, and help provide balance for your special physique.
Ideal candidates are Body Builders who are realistic about what the surgery can afford after a complete consultation.
Breast Augmentation Surgery for Body Builders can be performed for all breast sizes, and technique may differ, depending on your particular needs. Scars on or near the breasts are an inevitable consequence of this type of surgery, but I close the skin with great care and offer advice and support regarding scar care after surgery.

BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY FAQS
WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF SILICONE VERSUS SALINE IMPLANTS?
The modern generation silicone implants are soft, safe and have an extremely similar feel to breast tissue. They are most effective in women with little or no breast tissue who are very thin, and in those that require the implants to be placed under the breast tissue, over the muscle. Saline implants are still most effective in many women, especially those with modest amount of breast tissue, and those women desiring implants under the muscle.
HOW LONG DO BREAST IMPLANTS LAST?
Manufacturer’s recommend replacement of silicone implants every 12-15 years. Saline implants may be kept in place until the leak or deflate, because they are filled with saltwater, which your body absorbs. However, they usually lasts approximately 12-15 years.
HOW LONG CAN I EXPECT TO BE SWOLLEN AFTER UNDERGOING BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY?
The majority of swelling will decrease over the first 4-6 weeks, but complete resolution takes approximately 3 months.
WHEN WE WILL MY RECOVERY BE COMPLETE?
It usually takes approximately 6 months for the muscle tissue, breast tissue and skin to stretch and accommodate the implants and allow them to settle in. The breasts look good right after surgery, but improve over time, and by the end of 6 months most of my patients tell me that they truly feel like the implants are theirs.
WHAT KIND OF SCARS CAN I EXPECT AFTER HAVING A BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE?
Each of the approaches described above result with scars that are placed in locations that are hidden and well camouflaged. However, each person heals differently and scarring varies from individual to individual. My staff and I counsel all our patients regarding scar care after surgery.
