Endoscopic Breast Augmentation
Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey specializes in endoscopic breast augmentation, the application of minimally invasive techniques to surgery of the breasts. It is performed through a small incision in the armpit utilizing a surgical telescope to insert the breast implant. The entire operation is performed in full view on a television screen. This new procedure allows for precise positioning of the breast implants through an inconspicuous scar resulting in less bruising, swelling and discomfort for the patient. Many women love the fact that scars on the breasts are eliminated. Compared to the "belly button" method of breast augmentation, the endoscopic technique is preferred because of improved symmetry without the abdominal pain and abdominal bruising. Recovery is shorter too, usually within one week.
Your surgery is performed at a first class ambulatory facility at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey and takes about two hours to complete. Our patients shower the very next day and frequently return to work within several days. Our patients who have undergone breast augmentation are thrilled with the results. This procedure may also be performed in conjunction with breast lift, liposuction or a tummy tuck for total body contour improvement.

Common Breast Implant Questions
at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey
What is the recovery time for breast implants?
The recovery time for a breast implant procedure is around 3-5 days. If your breast implants are positioned over the chest muscle the recovery time will be shorter compared to implants placed under the muscle. For the first 48 hours following surgery, it is recommended that you elevate your back and breasts to reduce swelling and bruising. The swelling and bruising will improve quickly over the first 1-2 weeks, and continue to decrease slowly over the next several months.
When can I return to work after receiving breast implants? And start exercising again?
Most patients feel well enough to return to work within a week of the breast implant procedure. You can be up and walking immediately after the procedure, and light exercise and more moderate workouts can be considered after 3-4 weeks, but heavy exercise routines should be avoided for at least a full month after breast implant surgery. Always consult with your physician before starting an exercise regime, as breast implant recovery times vary per patient.
