Why Breast Implants May Be Right For You

If you would like larger, shapelier, higher, or more even breasts, breast augmentation at the exclusive, private practice of Dr. Studin may help you achieve the look that you have been dreaming of! read more

Breast augmentation is a very common plastic surgery procedure designed to enhance breasts to be fuller, shapelier, more even or more lifted. Some women never develop full breasts after puberty. This could be from genetics, or just bad luck. Others, have a loss of breast tissue after pregnancies, with, or without breast-feeding. These breasts can becomes droopy and empty.

Women from 18 to over 70 years old are commonly seen for breast augmentation. The younger patients usually never developed full breasts. The older patients either had post-pregnancy, involution, or loss of skin support due to aging or weight fluctuation. Many of this group have wanted breast implants for years, and finally decided to go ahead with the procedure. If you want your breasts to be larger, more shapely, or more symmetrical, then you are likely to be a good candidate for breast augmentation.

Silicone or Saline Breast Implants?

Silicone Implants

A silicone implant has a silicone shell that contains a silicone gel that mimics the feel of natural breast tissues. There are very clear reasons why one would choose silicone or salineimplants. read more

There are no significant difference in illnesses or complications associated with choosing silicone or saline implants. Many people feel they only want the "more natural" saline implants. However, saline implants actually have a silicone shell. The part that touches you is the same. There is no such thing as a saline implant without a silicone surround.

Leaking of the silicone into the surrounding tissue was common prior to 1986. The implant was redesigned then, to eliminate the thin silicone liquid that caused this problem, and replaced it with a cohesive gel.

Silicone and saline implants also weigh the same. They look the same. But they do not feel the same. Silicone implants feel much more natural and are less likely to ripple over time. Discuss this and much more in your consultation with Dr. Studin

Saline Implants

Saline breast implants have silicone shells. Some people feel that they want the "more natural" saline implant. They look the same and they weigh the same, but they do not feel the same. Saline implants are more likely to be felt within the breast than silicone implants, which are softer. However, the FDA has decided that unless you are 18 - 22 years of age, or older, you can only get saline implants. read more

Breast Implant Shape Types


Teardrop Breast Implants

Teardrop implants, sometimes referred to as shaped or anatomic implants, have a shape that was designed to simulate the look of a natural breast. This particular kind of implant has an asymmetrical form, with a thin upper portion that gradually slopes into a fuller, rounder base. read more The lower section of the implant contains the greater portion of its total volume. While this seems like it should be a good idea, it is really not. The reason is, that while shaped like a teardrop at first, over months and years the weight of the gel will stretch the bottom a little bit. In these implants, the top was almost empty when you started. By a few years later, it is totally empty on top making it look saggy. Not a great idea.

Since teardrop implants are asymmetrically shaped, they also carry a risk of rotating within the breast pocket. This implant rotation can ruin the shape and symmetry of the breasts, and require corrective surgery to fix. Round implants are perfectly symmetrical, and thus they carry no risk of rotating. The very same settling that makes the teardrop implants look bad later, makes round implants look natural when healing is complete

Round Breast Implants

Breast augmentation procedures typically involve the use of round implants because they are the most natural-looking option, once healing is complete. A round implant does not give you a phony looking round breast. The way you avoid a phony looking round breast is by read more putting the implant under the muscle, fat and breast tissue, providing great coverage over the breast implant. Since the implant takes the shape of the surrounding tissue, these look very natural when they have settled into place. This shape avoids the emptiness on top often seen with teardrop implants. In fact, round implants have a tendency to look more natural when the patient is lying down, because their filler gets equally distributed throughout the implant, whereas teardrop implants continue to be constrained to their original shape.

Round implants often have a uniform viscosity that is more natural-feeling and are made of either saline or silicone. They are available in a wide range of sizes, projections (the distance they extend outward from the front of the chest wall) and diameters.

Gummy Bear Implants

The semi-solid gels used in the construction of teardrop implants, can be made into shaped breast implants, sometimes known as "gummy bear implants". As a result of the relative firmness and stability of these materials, they keep their original shape whether you are sitting, standing or sitting. Natural breasts do not behave this way. Therefore, these can look unnatural. Since Gummy Bear implants keep their shape no matter what, they can rotate in the pocket and look very asymmetrical. Unnatural movement and possible rotation are reasons that they are not a popular choice among plastic surgeons at all. read more


Having served as the Director of a multi specialty breast center for years, Dr. Studin has done thousands of breast cases. His advice about incision placement for each individual person is based upon decades of experience and thousands of cases. When it comes to breast augmentation surgery, there are different incision locations that can be used. Options include transaxillary incision, which is made in the armpit; periareolar incision, which runs along the line between the dark-colored areola and the lighter surrounding skin; inframammary incision, which sits in the crease below the breast; and transumbilical incision, which allows the surgeon to insert an implant through the belly button. Each has its advantages and disadvantages. These are all covered in depth during your consultation with Dr. Studin. read more

Areolar/Periareolar Incision

This method involves creating a semicircle incision at the lower half of the areola (periareolar). The implant is then inserted and positioned through the opening.


The advantages of this method are plentiful: the openings are typically small and heal well, resulting in a well-hidden or nearly invisible scar that blends with the color and texture variations of the areola itself. Remember that if you cut your lip, it heals quickly. When you cut your cheek, you will notice a visible scar. The periareolar incision is more like a lip incision. Typically, the scar is barely visible, and any remaining scar tissue is only visible when not wearing clothing. Because of the central location, the surgeon can quickly and precisely position each implant in the most appealing location during surgery.  In this incision, the nipple or underlying milk ducts are NOT involved. It is far from the nipple, at the junction of the areola and skin, and contrary to popular belief, it does not prevent breastfeeding. It is NOT in the nerves' path to the nipple. These nerves travel around the spine, through the armpit, and enter the nipple from the upper side towards the arm. It is uncommon to have decreased feeling after this surgery. Dr. Studin can place implants this way without a problem, even in patients with small areolas. read more


Like any other incision in the skin, the scar can overgrow and become visible. That is unusual for this incision, and in the few cases where it occurs, it can be hidden beneath clothing. read more

Inframammary Incision

The inframammary approach, often called the crease incision, was the first approach developed for breast enlargement. The opening is created in the crease under the breast, called the inframammary fold, where the breast meets the chest wall. In some women, the breasts will conceal this crease, when standing. However, when lying down or in a bikini, this incision is very visible.  The surgeon creates an opening along the fold under the breast, forms a pocket, and then places and positions the implant. read more


Many doctors suggest it because the implant can be placed and positioned more quickly. Moreover, patients believe it will not affect nipple sensation and breastfeeding. These concerns should be discussed with Dr. Studin, as they are usually not an issue with less visible options. read more


Usually, the scar is very noticeable in this incision, especially while lying down or wearing a bikini or halter top. The incision made at the inframammary fold is in skin that does not tend to heal very well. Therefore, this telltale mark can be very unsightly and distressing. read more

Transaxillary - Armpit Incision

In this method, an incision is made in the armpit crease using the transaxillary technique. It is possible for the placement of breast implants in women who would rather have a saline implant. For each implant, the surgeon makes an incision in the armpit and then creates a pocket in the chest wall. After the implant is inserted into the chest pocket, it is filled with saline. Silicone implants are not suitable for an armpit incision. read more


Some patients ask for this approach because they do not want any scarring on or near their breasts.


The cons of this procedure relate to the fact that the surgeon cannot directly visualize or feel the breast tissue, resulting in less control and precision when placing the implant. In addition, some patients have noted that the armpit scar is visible when wearing sleeveless tops and can make shaving more difficult. MOST IMPORTANTLY, the nerve that supplies feeling to the nipples goes right through the armpit and loss of nipple sensation following this surgery is a significant concern. read more

Transumbilical Incision

The Belly Button Incision or Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA) is made on the upper-inside edge of your belly button. After that, empty, rolled-up saline implants are inserted through a tube into the breasts and inflated once they're in place.


The primary advantage of this incision is that the scar is hidden in the navel and cannot be seen.


There are several disadvantages to transumbilical incisions. For one thing, the surgeon must control the procedure from the belly button area, which is far from the breasts, making ideal implant placement difficult. Furthermore, you can only use saline implants because they cannot be filled until inserted. These two factors make achieving natural-looking results with the TUBA incision much more difficult. It also changes the fold under the breasts, making them appear unnatural.  read more

Breast Implant Sizes

Finding the best implant size for your breasts by deciding what cup size you want doesn't work anymore. Today, some clothing manufacturers put size 2 labels on size 6 clothing, so that people can brag about being a small size. Some bra manufacturers put size D labels on size C bras so that people can brag about having large breasts. It's all about marketing. Dr. Studin's years of expertise doing breast implants have taught him that measuring your chest doesn't work either. read more

The volume of an implant, combined with the breast you already have, determines the size you will be after the surgery.  You need your eyes, a mirror and implant sizers. Your breast, plus an implant in a sports bra, placed properly by the doctor, will show you pretty much exactly what you are going to look like once you have healed.

The usual price for a breast augmentation in NY ranges from around $6,000 to $15,000, depending on your situation. Sometimes, other procedures are needed or recommended along with the implants.

Silicone gel breast implants provide the softest and most natural feel to touch.

Many people will have their implants for their whole life and never have to do anything. Sometimes, the implant can rupture. If this happens, it is not dangerous, but should be changed.

Breast-feeding is usually not affected by implants placed under the muscle. The implants are not against the breast, they are behind the muscle. Additionally, the nipple and milk ducts are not touched during this procedure. Dr. student will explain this to you in detail during your consultation.

Breast augmentation using your own fat has been done by many people. Dr. Studin will not do this. The reason is, that the fat is not supported with blood vessels, bringing nutrients. Therefore, a significant portion of the central fat that is transplanted to make your breasts bigger dies. Then can look like breast cancer on mammograms, leading to unnecessary biopsies and difficulty monitoring your breasts for breast cancer. Breast implants under the muscle are not against your breasts. They are behind the muscle, making monitoring your breasts later in life much easier for the mammographer.
