Dr. Christine Blaine is a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. As a woman and a mother, Dr. Blaine understands firsthand the emotional component in considering breast surgery. Whether you are seeking to increase/decrease the size of your breasts, attain a more youthful shape and projection or restore your breasts following a mastectomy, pregnancy and/or nursing, Blaine Plastic Surgery in New York can help you achieve your goals with cosmetic procedures that produce beautiful, customized and natural-looking results.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure traditionally designed to use breast implants (saline or silicone gel) to increase the size, fullness and projection of a patient’s breasts. In recent years, plastic surgeons have also begun to offer the option of breast augmentation using a fat transfer, where the patient’s own body fat is harvested and used for the same enhancement purposes. While the use of FDA-approved saline and silicone gel breast implants are still the most popular approach for breast augmentation, these procedures (using implants and/or fat) can restore breast volume after weight loss, pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, or simply provide a patient with the breast volume that they have always wanted. A breast augmentation will also help patients achieve a more rounded, youthful breast shape, upper pole firmness and improve any natural breast size asymmetry.
