Payment Plans for Breast Augmentation

financing options for breast augmentationManhattan Aesthetic Surgery in New York offers it’s clients two excellent financing options that give you the ability to make payments on your breast implants.

Care Credit: This is a first tier financing program that offers excellent interest rates (some clients even qualify for 0% interest) and customized payment plans for cosmetic surgical procedures. This plan can also be used for other medically related expenses like ER visits, dentistry, and even vet visits for your pet! If you are worried about your credit score or credit history, you can also apply with a co-applicant to increase your chances of being approved. You can apply online at CareCredit.com, or we can process the application for you after your consultation.

HELP Card: This is a second tier program that has slightly higher interest rates (no higher than most standard credit cards) in exchange for less stringent credit requirements compared to Care Credit, so it is easier to get approved. This program also has flexible payment plans that can work with almost any budget, and we can help you apply after your consultation or if you get turned down by Care Credit.

If you have any questions about financing for breast implants in New York, or if you would like to schedule a consultation, please feel free to give us a call at 917-703-7069, or send us a message through our website by clicking here.

Which incision is the best for breast augmentation surgery?

incision choices for breast augmentation surgeryNew data presented at the 2013 American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) meeting suggests that the inframammary incision (in the fold under the breast) carries nearly a 50% lower risk of capsular contracture than the other incisions (periareolar, transaxillary, and transumbilical).

The overall risk of capsular contracture after breast augmentation surgery is a range of about 10-15%, but new data suggests that the risk can be cut to about 5% with inframammary incisions.

How should breast implants look right after surgery?

breast implants during surgery and one day after

The first photo was taken during breast augmentation surgery. You can see that her new breast implants look good right away… they don’t look as good as they will once they are healed, but they still look symmetric, attractive, and much better than what she has to start with. They are sitting slightly high on her chest because the skin hasn’t even started to stretch, but overall they look nice.

The second photo was taken the day after surgery. She is  more swollen, and the implants haven’t settled or dropped at all yet (in fact, they actually look a little higher because of the additional swelling), but they still look attractive and symmetric. She can easily imagine what they will look like after they are healed without having to envision any dramatic changes.

If your new breast implants look so bad to you that you are having a hard time envisioning that they will ever look good no matter how much stretching and settling occurs, then there might be a problem. You should speak with your surgeon right away if you feel this way after your procedure.

Larger size implants with a petite frame…

This may seem like an easy procedure, but this is actually one of the toughest breast augmentation surgeries. This woman was very petite and in very good shape with incredibly low body fat, but she wanted a larger sized implant. It is extremely difficult to achieve a natural look with this combination of factors, but as you can see, it is possible with a highly advanced technique of implant insertion.

She underwent a submuscular (under the muscle) breast augmentation with a 397cc (full C cup) moderate profile Natrelle silicone implant, and this is the result at only 6 weeks after surgery with only about 80% of the stretching complete. Over the next 6 weeks, her result will continue to improve  as the bottom half her breast completes it full stretch and the implants rotate down into an even more natural position.

With the Rapid Recovery technique, she was back to work in less than a week, and back to the gym after only 10 days.

If you have any questions about breast augmentation surgery, breast implants, or the Rapid Recovery Breast AugmenationTM, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 917-703-7069, or contact us through our website by clicking here. More before and after photos available here.

Breast Implant Revision Surgery for Implants that are Too High

breast implant revision, breast augmentation revision, implants sitting too high

If you’ve spent any time looking at Before & After photos for breast augmentation, you have probably noticed how common it is for the implants to be sitting too high on the chest.

These are photos of a 24 year old woman who traveled to Miami to have her breast augmentation by a “prominent” plastic surgeon, but as you can see in her Before picture (taken one month after her original surgery), she didn’t get a great result. Her implants are sitting VERY high on her chest and they have an unnatural rectangular shape. Her original implants were 650cc high-profile saline that were overfilled to about 700cc. They felt very hard, and looked frozen to her chest when she tried to move them.
