Breast augmentation using breast implants at our New Jersey practice is performed to increase the size and alter the shape of a woman's breasts. Women may choose to have this procedure done either to enhance the contours of the body or to balance differently sized breasts. Breast augmentation results in fuller, firmer, more symmetrical breasts to give patients their ideal bust line. Breast implants can be placed using a number of techniques. Incisions can be made either along the underside crease of the breast, the armpit, or the perimeter of the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). The placement of the incision will vary according to body type and the individual specifics of the procedure. Dr. Rauscher enters the incision and creates a pocket either directly beneath the breast tissue or underneath the chest muscle. The breast implant is then centered directly behind the nipple to ensure natural-looking results. Finally, the original incision is carefully sutured to minimize scarring.
