Breast Enhancement in Manhattan, NYC
Breast enhancement, performed at our convenient Manhattan surgery center, encompasses more than just increasing the size of the breasts. Board-certified Manhattan plastic surgeon and general surgeon Richard W. Swift, Jr., M.D., F.A.C.S. can also reduce the size of the breasts and cosmetically alter the breasts, including nipple reduction and nipple correction. Surgery can also be used to reduce male breasts due to gynecomastia.
Dr. Swift also offers breast reconstruction surgery to help restore breast symmetry and contour for individuals who have had a mastectomy.
What Is Breast Enhancement?
Breast enhancement spans a wide range of categories including increasing, decreasing, or cosmetically altering the shape and size of the breasts. Many women (and some men) desire changes to the breasts because of congenital issues or simply for improved health and activity.
Benefits of Breast Enhancement
Our patients who have undergone breast enhancement at our Manhattan clinic have told us that as a result of their surgery, they feel the following benefits:

Breast Enhancement Before and After
We invite you to browse our extensive catalog of cosmetic surgeries and treatments to see the types of results Dr. Swift has obtained for his patients. Keep in mind that each individual is different and that you’ll learn more about the outcome you can expect from your specific surgery or treatment at your consultation with Dr. Swift.
How Is Breast Enhancement Performed?
In the case of implants, a specially contoured implant (saline or silicone) will be implanted either over or behind the chest muscle, and then the breasts are wrapped with gauze to help minimize swelling and bruising. You may have some discomfort as the swelling subsides but will be given over-the-counter analgesics to help minimize this discomfort.
For fat transfer (also known as fat injection or fat grafting), you will be put under general anesthesia, and fat will be either suctioned by hand or through the use of liposuction, purified and separated, and then injected into the areas of the breast where you desire more volume.
Breast Enhancement Recovery
Your breasts or the area around them (such as the nipple or areola) may be swollen, tender, or bruised after the surgery. You may be asked to wear a compression garment to help the skin adjust to the new breast shape (in the case of an augmentation, reduction, or lift). You may also be advised not to lift or carry things for a specific timeframe. If you have young children or infants around the home, you may wish to have someone available to help tend to them during your recovery time.
How Much Does Breast Enhancement Cost?
Costs for breast enhancement will vary depending on the extent of surgery or the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Prosper Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
Is Breast Enhancement Right for Me?
Choosing to have breast enhancement surgery is a highly personal decision that you should do for yourself – not to please a spouse or family member. During your consultation at our Manhattan office, Dr. Swift will personally evaluate your candidacy for breast enhancement surgery to determine the right strategy for your specific needs. Those patients who are most pleased by the results they receive are those who have realistic expectations as a result of surgery.
