Breasts are an important part of the female body, but women aren’t always born with the breasts they want. If you’re unhappy with the size of your breasts and would like for them to be larger, breast augmentation could be the ideal procedure for you.
How Breast Augmentation Can Help
Maybe you’ve always had small breasts, or perhaps you’ve recently had children and have lost some volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Either way, breast augmentation will enable you to improve and enhance your shape. Dr. Parakh is a double board-certified plastic surgeon — and also a woman — performing breast augmentation in New Jersey. She understands that an improvement in a patient’s personal silhouette can increase self-esteem and help a woman feel proud of her body.

Procedure Day: The Breast Augmentation Surgery
Arrive for your breast augmentation surgery early. Please bring loose-fitting clothing and a top that buttons down the front to wear after your procedure for easy dressing. Dr. Parakh and her nursing staff will inform you about when to come and how to prepare for the surgery.
You will receive general anesthetic for your breast augmentation. This is an outpatient procedure, which means you’ll be able to go home after spending an hour or two in the recovery room after surgery. Please be sure to have someone with you for the procedure and after the augmentation to help you get home safely and pick up any prescriptions you may need.
Dr. Parakh uses the Keller Funnel, a technique in which the breast implant can be compressed through a smaller incision and inserted with improved precision. The Keller Funnel also utilizes a “no-touch” method that keeps the implant sterile. This lowers the risk of infection and shortens surgical time.
Dr. Parakh also often incorporates liposuction when performing breast augmentation.
Before you know it, your breast augmentation and the healing process will be completed.
What Risks are Involved in Breast Augmentation?
Risks involved with breast augmentation include breast implant illness and rupture contracture. To prevent this, Dr. Parakh encourages regular follow-ups. Those with implants should inform their mammogram provider that they have breast implants. “Gummy bear” implants will also help prevent implant leaking.
Dr. Parakh does everything in her power to minimize any complications. If any do arise, she will be with you every step of the way to guide you through the healing process.
Recovery After Breast Augmentation
Dr. Parakh will give you a list of do’s and don’ts for the immediate time after your augmentation. She will also tell you what to look for after surgery to ensure that you heal properly.
Most breast augmentation patients are able to return to work in 3-5 days and can get back to regular activities in 4-5 days (except for exercise, which will need to be postponed for two weeks).
We recommend no heavy lifting for six weeks, and you’ll need to wear a sports bra for six weeks. Be aware that at first, your breast implants will sit quite high. They will eventually settle over the course of a few weeks to months. You will have your first post-op follow-up in one week so that Dr. Parakh can check on the progress of how you’re healing. You will return for checkups at six weeks and six months.
Who Makes the Best Breast Augmentation Candidate?
Dr. Parakh is located in Englewood, NJ and proudly serves the surrounding New Jersey area and beyond. If you’re considering breast augmentation with her, you may be the ideal candidate. Those who are good patients for breast augmentation are generally healthy, at a stable weight that they are happy with, and in good physical shape.
If you plan on losing significant amount of weight, you may want to postpone the surgery until you’ve reached your weight loss goals, as your existing breasts are the foundation on which improvement is made — and we would certainly want a stable foundation. If you intend on having another child, you may want to consider waiting until after the next baby is born and you have completed breastfeeding before you have your augmentation surgery done.
