Cosmetic surgery in NYC has been on the rise in the past decade, with breast augmentation as one of the most popular procedures performed. Sometimes breast augmentation with implants is the best option for women who want to increase their self esteem, or for other women who had full breasts but have undergone changes in their appearance due to breastfeeding or pregnancy. The natural aging process, or lost breast fullness due to life events, can also be important reasons for breast augmentation. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David P. Rapaport experiences many requests for breast implants from his patients in Manhattan. He will take the time in a one-on-one consultation with you to discuss your personal situation, questions and concerns. As part of an exclusive group of surgeons who now offer the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant®, Dr. Rapaport can provide you with more options.

IDEAL IMPLANT and Cosmetic Surgery in NYC

The IDEAL IMPLANT is the newest implant to approach the market of cosmetic surgery in NYC. Patient satisfaction is high when it comes to this implant because it has a natural feel with a very low risk of rupture. The IDEAL IMPLANT is designed to last a lifetime. If, on the rare chance, it does rupture, women can tell just by looking in the mirror, and the saline filling inside is harmlessly absorbed by the body. Other options, like silicone implants, don’t measure up to IDEAL IMPLANTS with regard to the low rupture and capsular contracture rates seen in a recent eight year study; the IDEAL IMPLANT proved to have the lowest risk of rupture and capsular contracture. This implant provides the priceless peace of mind that women want in New York. Plastic surgery before and after photos here and on Dr. Rapaport’s website will show you how this implant combines the best features of silicone gel and saline implants.

“Based on my experience, I would say the IDEAL IMPLANT is an excellent option. Patients like the look and the feel. Above all they really like the peace of mind of knowing that they haven’t done anything they might regret down the road or that if there is a rupture, the process of replacing it is easier than with other implants that rupture.” – Dr. Rapaport

Breast Implant Sizes

Most women have an idea in mind of what size implant they are wanting when they come to Dr. Rapaport for cosmetic surgery in NYC. It is helpful to do your research before your consultation, and have a good idea of what you are looking for. Once you have explained your vision, Dr. Rapaport will do a thorough physical exam, take measurements, and help you create the best cosmetic surgery plan that will benefit your body and lifestyle, while achieving your personal vision.

“I look at a breast augmentation consultation as an educational process, with the necessity being that the patient learn about her options. Most people who come in for a consultation aren’t truly informed of their options and the trade-offs involved. I take into consideration a woman’s concerns and anatomy, and then I educate her in terms of what her options are. I try to honestly portray the pluses and minuses with each option so that she can make the best decision for her.” – Dr. Rapaport

No matter what breast implant sizes you end up choosing, Dr. Rapaport knows how to create incredible results. Because of his research and experience in endoscopic procedures, he knows how to minimize scarring and give you the beautiful, natural looking breasts you desire like in the patient pictured below.

Before and After Photos

This patient desired breast implants but she strongly wanted to avoid a scarring. Because of concerns regarding long-term silicone safety and the need for active monitoring for silent rupture, she chose the IDEAL IMPLANT for her procedure. Dr. Rapaport placed 250cc implants into both breasts through the endoscopic, underarm approach.

Endoscopic Incision

When you go in for a breast augmentation, you have the option of incision through the underarm, areola, or in the skin that connects underneath your breast to your chest. Most patients prefer an underarm scar because it prevents obvious scars from forming on their breasts. Dr. Rapaport performs underarm incisions using an endoscope. This means that rather than tearing the lower border of the muscle and risking the implant changing positions due to incomplete muscle division, the muscle is precisely divided under magnified endoscopic visualization, allowing for control of any bleeding and precise implant positioning.

“Throughout my years of practice, it has been very satisfying to achieve a natural-appearing breast appearance without any scar on the breast,” says Rapaport. “It is very rewarding to see these patients both early after surgery and years after their operation, maintaining their results, and all without any breast scars.”

About Dr. David P. Rapaport

Dr. Rapaport is a board-certified New York Plastic Surgeon and did his plastic surgery training at the New York University’s Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, which is widely regarded as the nation’s top plastic and cosmetic surgery residency program. After a one-year microsurgery fellowship, Dr. Rapaport moved to Florida. There, he developed a successful and respected practice as a cosmetic plastic surgeon. During his four years in Florida, he also did pioneering work in endoscopic and minimal incision breast and oncologic (melanoma) surgery. In 1997, he returned to New York and opened his private practice of cosmetic surgery in NYC. His endoscopic work has helped him gain popularity among women who don’t want scars on their breasts post surgery.

“I love being a doctor, I love being a surgeon … I think our practice stands out because we very much individualize our treatments. I’m very proud to be able to offer minimally invasive treatments that hide scars. I’m proud that I do virtually all my liposuction, and the vast majority of my facelifts, under IV sedation. I tell you to take a deep breath, roll over, and I beat the chances of airway problems or blood clot. I enjoy the act of surgery as well as the relationships with the patients that occur from the whole process. So I guess I’m a pretty happy guy.” – Dr. Rapaport
