Breast Augmentation in New Jersey and New York
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Gordon Kaplan specializes in breast augmentation for New Jersey and New York patients.
A breast augmentation is a very custom and personalized procedure. Whether your goal is to restore lost volume after pregnancy, correct asymmetries, or simply feel more confident in clothing or swimwear, Dr. Kaplan is committed to providing you with natural results that flatter your body and your breasts.
Breast augmentation surgery involves breast implants or fat, referred to as fat transfer breast augmentation, to increase the size of your breasts or restore breast volume that has been lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. This surgical procedure is clinically referred to as augmentation mammaplasty.
Benefits of a Breast Augmentation
- Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
- Improve the aesthetic balance and proportions of your figure
- Enhance your self-image and self-confidence
- Breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury.
The Kaplan Center’s Approach to Augmentation Surgery
Your breast augmentation procedure will be comfortable, safe, and rewarding from start to finish, starting with consultation in our conveniently-located offices in Montvale and Edgewater, NJ as well as in New York City.
We will discuss with you the exact steps in great detail to ensure your level of comfort and knowledge about the procedure. You will be informed of realistic expectations that will ease any apprehension.
We offer a progressive approach to pain management, providing our patients with pain medication and anti-inflammatory medication the day before surgery to minimize discomfort. Dr. Kaplan uses very gentle surgical techniques to minimize muscle spasms, blood loss, and facilitate rapid healing.

The Breast Augmentation Surgery
Most breast augmentations are performed under general anesthesia. An incision is usually made in the inframmary crease (the folder under the breast) or within the Areola, depending on preoperative breast shape and size. The implant will either be placed above or below the muscle depending on preoperative examination.
Recovery From a Breast Augmentation
Some swelling, bruising, or soreness is typical after surgery but will decline over several days. Dr. Kaplan’s gentle surgical techniques will allow you able to resume your normal daily activities in about a week. More strenuous exercise or heavy lifting should be avoided for up to 4 to 6 weeks.
Our postoperative Scar Prevention Protocol has been refined to limit scarring and capsule formation for optimal results.
