With today’s advanced surgical approaches, you define your ideal breasts. Embrace your most confident self through modest lifting or a more pronounced boost.
When planning your breast augmentation procedure with Dr. Nathan Molina, your inspiration is translated into bespoke results that reflect your personal goals. Read on to learn how implant, fat grafting, or breast lift techniques can be utilized to tailor your ideal outcome. Proudly serving breast augmentation patients from Brooklyn and beyond, we are thrilled to provide exceptional, compassionate, and highly skilled care on your journey of improved confidence and quality of life.
Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in the United States. Far from a one-size-fits-all enhancement, the breast augmentation procedure is completely tailored to the patient’s individual needs to provide the perfect amount of added volume and craft beautiful contours that flatter your figure.
The implant route to augmentation lets you choose from a range of implant types, shapes, and sizes. Depending on your preferences, either a silicone or saline implant may be a good option. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saline solution, while silicone implants are composed of a cohesive silicone gel. Each type of implant comes in many different sizes. Dr. Molina will use various methods to help you envision your results and select implants to help you achieve the exact look you seek.
A simple technique known as autologous fat transfer enables you to enhance your breasts with your body’s own fat tissue. Fat is collected from a donor area elsewhere, such as the abdomen or thighs, and meticulously injected into the breasts to increase their volume and accentuate their shape. Fat transfer is an excellent option for breast augmentation patients seeking more natural-appearing results without implants.
Size isn’t the only concern women have about their breasts. Aging, pregnancy, and weight changes can cause the skin and tissue of the breasts to sag. In mastopexy, or breast lift surgery, excess skin is skillfully reduced, and the breasts are tightened and lifted up higher on the chest. A breast lift can be performed alone or in combination with breast augmentation for those who want added fullness.
If your breast implants have reached the end of their lifespan or you simply do not want them anymore, Dr. Molina performs breast implant removal. Typically, incisions are created along the lines used for the original implant surgery, and expert techniques are used to minimize visible scarring. In the case that an implant has ruptured, Dr. Molina will carefully remove all implant material as well as any existing scar tissue or capsules. A breast lift or a breast augmentation with fat is often combined with implant removal surgery for those who want to keep the fullness they had with their implants.
A Balanced Physique
Many women pursue breast augmentation to achieve a more balanced or proportionate figure, enhancing their overall appearance. For our patients in Brooklyn breast augmentation can also help reverse loss of breast volume due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss, restoring and accentuating the breasts’ appearance.
Patients tend to love their results, expressing that their breasts help them embrace new confidence and enjoyment of their bodies. Advanced techniques make it possible to customize one’s breast size and shape to align with personal preferences and aesthetic goals. After a breast augmentation Brooklyn patients' results are very long-lasting: fat transfer offers permanent results, while implants in good condition are approved for ten years and often last much longer. Pursuing breast augmentation is a completely personal choice. For those who decide to take this path, the results can be an empowering source of self-confidence, providing benefits in every area of life.

Your journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Molina to discuss your goals. A careful listener and thoughtful practitioner, he will spend ample time learning about your vision for your procedure. Answering any questions, he will thoroughly educate you about various considerations for your surgery, helping you chart your individual path with confidence. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Molina today, and rest assured that you are in the best hands for your journey of enhanced beauty and confidence.
The details of your surgery will depend on many factors, such as the selected breast augmentation method and your various individual needs and goals for your results. At a pre-op appointment, Dr. Molina will review details, including anesthesia administration, incision placement, the length of surgery, and all necessary aftercare arrangements.
You will be comfortably asleep for the duration of the procedure. Dr. Molina’s surgical techniques will revolve around the needs of your surgery and focus on providing natural-looking results with minimal scarring. When your procedure is complete, we will monitor you in a comfortable recovery room as the effects of the anesthesia wear off to ensure your safety before returning home. Most patients return home the same day of their procedure in the company of a friend or family member to drive them.
In many cases, you may need to wear a surgical bra or compression garment to minimize swelling and provide support to the newly augmented breasts. Properly balancing rest and activity is crucial during the initial days and weeks following surgery. Dr. Molina will provide guidelines on gradually returning to your normal activity levels. Most people can resume light activities within about two weeks and strenuous activities within one month. Make sure to attend all follow-up appointments, and always contact our office immediately if you have questions. We prioritize providing attentive support during the recovery period to ensure the best possible results.
A Bolder You
As post-procedure swelling fades, your results will refine and be yours to enjoy for years. You may experience new confidence in your body and enjoy a broader range of clothing options that let you embrace your unique style.
Breast implants are approved to last up to a decade, but many individuals find they last longer, providing a semi-permanent figure enhancement. The results of breast augmentation with fat transfer are permanent. The body will absorb a small amount of the transferred fat early on, an expected process that is offset by adding slightly more fat than is required to provide lasting enhancement. Our team will work carefully alongside you every step of the way to provide a surgical outcome that aligns beautifully with your vision for your most confident body.
The most common incision locations are inframammary incisions in the natural crease beneath the breasts and periareolar incisions around the border of the areolas. The choice of incision location depends on different factors and will be discussed at your pre-operative consultation.
Yes, it is generally possible to breastfeed after breast augmentation surgery, but there are some considerations to keep in mind. Implants can be inserted underneath the breast tissue (sub-glandular) or behind the chest muscle (submuscular). Implants placed behind the muscle are less likely to interfere with milk production and breastfeeding. Some women may experience temporary or permanent changes in nipple sensitivity, which can affect breastfeeding latch and milk ejection reflex. The type of breast implant may also influence breastfeeding. Saline implants are typically considered safer than silicone implants because if they were to rupture, the saline solution would be harmlessly absorbed by the body.
It's essential to communicate your desire to breastfeed with your plastic surgeon during the consultation. A skilled surgeon like Dr. Molina can take steps to minimize the impact of breast augmentation on breastfeeding, such as choosing implant placement and incision techniques that are less likely to interfere with milk production. However, individual results can vary, so it's important to be prepared for the possibility of some challenges and seek appropriate support if needed.
