The breast consists of two elements, the skin envelope and the fill volume or "stuffing." At the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. William Koenig performs breast augmentation for women from Rochester, Syracuse, and Buffalo, NY by increasing their breast size with implants. If there has been a great deal of weight loss or if the skin is very loose as a result of preganancy and/or breast feeding, Dr. Koenig can reduce the skin envelope by performing a breast lift, also called mastopexy. In many cases, a breast lift alone provides the desired breast size and shape. If the results of a breast lift would leave the breasts too small for the patient's desires, an augmentation can be done at the same time as the lift.
Women who want a highly trained and experienced breast enhancement specialist and a choice of the latest silicone and saline breast implants choose the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery in Rochester, NY.

Individual results may vary.
Many surgeons recommend doing the breast lift and breast augmentation at different times due to the difficulty in controlling all of the variables that are necessary when doing them together. Dr. William Koenig's recommendation is to usually do them at the same time as long as the patient understands that there is a slightly higher chance of needing a revision when the two procedures are done together. Dr. Koenig's revision rate is about 5% for this combined operation.
A board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Koenig's experience and gentle bedside manner help put patients at ease and build an uncommon level of trust. He meticulously customizes each procedure, and sculpts beautiful results that consistently exceed his patients' expectations.
The majority of patients after a breast augmentation with a lift are able to resume normal activity within a day or two and most can return to work after three to four days. For five to seven days you cannot drive and may not exercise for one week.
You may resume lower body exercise after one week. You are not allowed to do upper body work for three weeks, but after three weeks you may resume exercise with no restrictions.
There are many over-the-counter creams and oils that are available for scar treatment with variable results. We now offer embrace® Advanced Scar Therapy as an effective way to enhance healing. Ultimately, the most important factors that aid in the best healing of your scars are to avoid UV exposure to the scar, and to massage and moisturize the scar.
You can expect to see your final result at about three months post-surgery although changes will continue for up to one year.
