Breast Augmentation


Breast augmentation is a popular surgery—in fact, it’s the top cosmetic surgery in the United States. Using implants, women can drastically change their breast size, shape, symmetry, and overall appearance. Of course, your results are only as good as the surgeon you work with. If you are considering breast augmentation on Long Island, Harris Plastic Surgery has the expert medical and patient coordination support you need to get the results you desire.

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

Breast augmentation surgery, often referred to as breast implant surgery, starts with an incision under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit, with the goal being to hide the scar. 

The surgeon then creates a pocket for the implants, either behind the breast tissue or the chest muscle, depending on the implant type and the desired surgical result. The doctor may use saline implants, which can be adjusted to a desired shape and size. They may also use silicone implants that are prefilled with a silicone gel. Again, this depends on the patient’s body type, the surgeon’s skill, and the overall result expected. 

As you can see, there are quite a few variables in the process. Your result is going to depend on the surgeon you work with. At Harris Plastic Surgery, we offer a concierge-style trUfit experience to ensure our patients always get the results they desire.

The Harris Plastic Surgery trUfit Experience

Harris Plastic Surgery offers the trUfit breast enhancement process, which is a comprehensive approach that involves a personalized assessment and education, state-of-the-art surgical techniques, and the latest evidence-based guidelines to ensure a safe and rapid recovery from breast augmentation surgery.

Initial Consult

During the initial consultation, patients are educated about the different types of breast implants available, including 5th-generation form-stable silicone implants and the new-generation structured saline implants branded as the Ideal Implant. Patients are also introduced to different implant shapes, sizes, textures, and incision techniques to help them make informed decisions about their breast augmentation procedure.

Customized Assessment

The trUfit breast enhancement process involves a customized assessment of each patient to guide surgical planning, resulting in better patient outcomes. During the detailed physical examination, several measurements of the breasts are taken to use a dimensional approach to finding the best implant to meet each patient’s expectations.


At Harris Plastic Surgery, state-of-the-art surgical techniques are used to place the breast implant, including protocols to avoid skin contact with the implant and to avoid any possible bacterial contamination of the implant pocket. This approach is thought to reduce the possibility of capsular contracture, an abnormal formation of scar tissue that can make the breast feel firmer or deform the implant shape over time.


The operation is usually performed as an outpatient under general anesthesia, and a long-acting local anesthetic is used to allow for a more rapid postoperative recovery and to limit the need for narcotic pain medication during early recovery. Harris Plastic Surgery follows the latest evidence-based guidelines to ensure a safe and rapid recovery from breast augmentation surgery.

It’s important to note that breast augmentation is a major surgical procedure and should be performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in breast surgery. Patients should also be aware of the potential risks and complications associated with breast augmentation, such as infection, bleeding, implant rupture or leakage, and changes in nipple or breast sensation.
