Breast Augmentation in New York
Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. There are several common types of breast augmentation techniques. It is important to note that the specific methods used may vary depending on factors such as your anatomy, desired outcome and Dr. Anastasatos’ recommendation.
Breast augmentation with implants is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size and shape of the breasts using implants. Various types of breast implants are available, including saline-filled, silicone gel-filled, structured and cohesive gel implants. Dr. Anastasatos will guide you in selecting the most appropriate implant type, size, shape and profile based on your desired outcome, body proportions and individual characteristics.
In fat transfer breast augmentation, fat is harvested from other areas of your body through liposuction and then injected into the breasts to increase their volume. This technique uses your own fat to enhance your breast size and shape.
In some cases, Dr. Anastasatos may use a combination of techniques to achieve your desired outcome. For example, he may perform a breast lift (mastopexy) along with breast augmentation to address both sagging and volume concerns.

New York Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure performed to rebuild a breast mound following the loss or removal of a breast. There are several reasons why a patient may choose to undergo breast reconstruction, including the following:
- Breast cancer treatment: The most common reason for breast reconstruction is to restore the breast shape and appearance after a mastectomy or lumpectomy, which are surgical procedures used to treat breast cancer. Reconstruction can help women regain a sense of wholeness and improve body image after the trauma of cancer treatment.
- Congenital breast deformities: Some women are born with underdeveloped or asymmetrical breasts. Breast reconstruction can be an option for individuals with congenital breast deformities, such as Poland syndrome or tuberous breasts, to achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing breast appearance.
- Traumatic injury: In cases where a traumatic injury or accident causes significant damage to one or both breasts, reconstruction may be considered to restore the breast shape, symmetry and function.
- Prophylactic mastectomy: Some women who have a high risk of developing breast cancer due to genetic mutations (such as BRCA1 or BRCA2) or a strong family history of the disease may choose to undergo a prophylactic mastectomy. Breast reconstruction can be performed during the mastectomy or in a separate procedure.
- Failed breast augmentation: In rare cases, breast augmentation procedures may result in complications, such as implant rupture, capsular contracture (excessive scar tissue around the implant) or unsatisfactory aesthetic outcomes. Breast reconstruction may be performed to correct these issues and restore the desired breast appearance.
Breast reconstruction can be achieved with various techniques, including implant-based reconstruction, autologous tissue (flap) reconstruction or a combination of both. The specific approach chosen depends on factors such as the patient’s preferences, body characteristics, overall health and the recommendations of the surgical team.
It’s important for individuals considering breast reconstruction in New York to consult a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon specializing in breast reconstruction. Dr. Anastasatos and his team will evaluate your unique circumstances, discuss the options and develop a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Breast Surgery?
A good candidate for New York cosmetic breast surgery, such as breast augmentation, breast lift or breast reduction, typically meets specific criteria. Candidates should be in good overall health and have no underlying medical conditions that could increase the risks associated with surgery or impair healing.
Candidates need to have realistic expectations and a positive outlook regarding the outcomes of cosmetic breast surgery. They should have a stable emotional state and be seeking the procedure for personal reasons rather than external pressures or influences. Candidates should clearly understand the potential benefits and limitations of the chosen procedure. They should also have realistic expectations about the results and be willing to follow post-operative care instructions.
Cosmetic breast surgery is generally performed on individuals whose breasts have fully developed, which usually occurs by their late teens or early twenties. Exceptions may be made for cases with congenital breast deformities or significant breast asymmetry.
Candidates should have a stable weight, as significant weight fluctuations can impact the long-term results of breast surgery. It is generally advisable to be at a healthy and maintainable weight before undergoing cosmetic breast procedures. Smoking can interfere with the healing process and increase the risk of complications. Candidates are advised to quit smoking before and after surgery to optimize the outcome.
