Whether you’ve wanted larger breasts for years or you’re simply in search of a lasting way to restore fullness after pregnancy or weight loss, breast augmentation with implants may be the right choice for you. Consistently ranked as one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country, breast augmentation has enduring appeal.
The results after breast augmentation can be naturally feeling and looking breast that are proportionate to your body. Clothes will fit better and it is no longer a chore to go bathing suit shopping. Breast augmentation can also be incorporated into other procedures for maximum impact.

Implants come in many sizes and shapes, and choosing the right implant is a source of concern and anxiety among many women. While many doctors and websites focus solely on implant volume, Dr. Rockmore offers a different approach to implant selection to help create the look that you are hoping to achieve. This enables him to match the width of the implant to the width of a your chest and breasts, thereby avoiding the big space between breasts, for full and natural-looking results.
In the hands of a qualified plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Rockmore, both saline- and silicone-filled implants are safe and have the potential to create incredible results. Saline implants are often more appropriate for women who are less than 22 years old. Silicone implants have durable silicone shells that are filled with a cohesive gel often referred to as gummy bears. If the implant were to rupture, the gel sticks together and does not leave the breast pocket or get absorbed by your body. They're ideal for women with thin skin or very small natural breasts and are typically thought to look and feel more natural than saline.
This refers to the degree that implants stick out, or project, from the chest. Although it may seem straightforward, projection actually has more to do with your existing anatomy and your desired results. The choice of profile is determined by the desired look of the breasts. Higher profile implants hae more superior fullness and look more “implanted” while moderate profile implants can look more natural, making them better matches for women with larger frames and wider chests.
Dr. Rockmore begins the surgery by making an incision, and the area will depend on your specific needs and body. Common incision locations include inframammary and periareolar approaches. Inframammary: a thin line that traces the fold beneath your breast. Periareolar: along the lower border of the areola, where the dark skin meets the lighter skin. Each incision type comes with its own advantages. In your consultation, Dr. Rockmore works with you to help you decide which option is best for you and your body.
You can expect to feel some discomfort and grogginess immediately after your breast augmentation with Dr. Rockmore. Because the surgery is outpatient, you’ll be able to return home after a brief period of observation. You can shower the day after surgery, and you can drive within 2 to 3 days, if comfortable. With the help of prescribed pain medication, most patients feel well enough to return to work and other light activities in under a week.
Your first postoperative appointment is usually a week after your breast augmentation. At this time, Dr. Rockmore will check your breasts to ensure everything is progressing as planned. Office visits are then scheduled for 1 month and 6 months later, though this can be minimized for his patients traveling from a distance. While this is the usual schedule, Dr. Rockmore is happy to see you at any time during your recovery to answer questions or address concerns.
