Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, and More - Long Island, NY
If you have dreamed of having a sexy, curvaceous bustline, soft, feminine curves, or extra confidence about your figure, breast augmentation might be the right choice for you. This popular cosmetic procedure is designed to give you the full, shapely breasts that nature didn't. Breast enlargement can also restore breasts that have been affected by pregnancy or the aging process.
During breast augmentation, we make incisions under your arms, around your nipples, or under your breasts, and gently insert naturally shaped, sterile, saline-filled breast implants. The implants are placed either under or over your chest muscles, depending on which Dr. Kisner believes is the best breast enlargement method for you. We then reposition the areola and nipple as necessary to achieve the most natural-looking effect (this should not affect your ability to breast feed). After breast augmentation surgery and as your breasts heal, you will experience some swelling, bruising, reduced nipple sensitivity, and general discomfort, but these side effects will diminish within a few weeks. To learn more about breast enlargement with saline implants, please contact our practice on Long Island to schedule a breast augmentation consultation.
Gravity, pregnancy, and weight gain or loss can all have a significant effect on your breasts - they can destroy natural elasticity and eventually cause your breasts to droop, stretch, or sag. Breast lift, or mastopexy, can virtually turn back the clock by restoring your breasts' elasticity and position. During breast lift, we will first make several incisions: one around the areola, one from the bottom of the areola to the underside of the breast, and, in some instances, one that runs horizontally along the natural crease of the breast. Next, we will trim away any extra fat, skin, or tissue and then tighten the remaining tissue. If necessary, we will also reposition the areola or make it smaller for the most natural, aesthetic result. Side effects of this procedure include some scarring, bruising, swelling, general discomfort, and loss of sensitivity in the breasts, but most will subside within a few weeks' time - as the breasts heal. Additionally, breast lift should not affect your ability to breast feed. To learn more about breast lift, please contact our plastic surgery practice on Long Island today!
Not only can too-large breasts make you feel insecure about your body, but they can also be uncomfortable. They may limit the clothes you can wear, require you to choose sturdy bras that can leave deep indentations in the shoulders, or make exercise - and even everyday activities - difficult. Breast reduction is a cosmetic procedure designed to relieve women of the burden of having disproportionate breasts.
During the procedure, we will make incisions around the areola, from the areola to the crease underneath the breast, and across the breast. We will gently remove excess fat, tissue and skin, then carefully tighten the remaining skin, positioning your newly proportionate breasts in a more flattering location. We will also make the areola smaller and shift it into the most natural-looking position. Common side effects of this three-hour procedure include swelling, bruising, and discomfort, but they will subside as your breasts begin to heal - usually within four weeks' time. The procedure will most likely not affect your ability to breast feed and produces only minimal scars.

Mastectomy, an important, life-saving technique designed to treat those suffering from breast cancer, can leave women feeling very self-conscious about their appearances. Breast deformities, too, can have the same effect. But with breast construction, you can regain your beautiful, symmetrical curves - and feel more secure about your appearance. Completed in stages over a period of six months or so, breast construction allows us to create natural-looking breasts out of the patient's own tissue or to carefully insert realistic-looking breast implants. But, of course, each treatment plan is completed personalized to suit the patient's needs.
