After Surgery

Patient: 1

This patient is a 31 year-old woman 5’8″ tall 145 lbs. who desires an appearance which increases her breast size naturally, yet also increased her chest width as to make her figure more proportional with her hips. She is tall and really stressed that she wanted a look that was natural.

Implants: 350cc High Profile Silicone Gel Implants placed Under the Muscle.

What this patient has to say about her surgery:

“It was very important to me that I obtain a result which is appropriate for my long narrow frame. Dr. Newman suggested that my implants be placed in a way that makes me more proportioned. He showed me many photographs of other patients including some with exactly my issue. I was even able to speak to one of these patients. This gave me much more confidence and made me more comfortable. I was petrified to do this in the first place. The system in Dr. Newman’s office before, during and after surgery is very comforting and complete and worry-free. It is obvious that he has done this many times before”

Patient: 2

This patient is a 26 year-old woman who was concerned about her size and differences between her breasts. Saline implants were chosen and an internal procedure performed only on her left breast raise that breast so, at the end of the procedure, the nipple height was nearly even.

Implants: Round Smooth Silicone Right- 350cc, Left- 325cc

What this patient has to say about her surgery:

“I wanted to be bigger, but I also hated the fact that my breasts were so uneven. The unevenness was always visible in clothing, especially without a bra. I saw three other doctors before I saw Dr. Newman, He was the only doctor who was confident that he could raise my left breast to match the right without using a scar around my nipple. He did exactly what he said he would do. The result I have is incredible and other friends of mine who already had implants are amazed. I look great in clothing with or without a bra and especially in a bathing suit! I’m so glad I listened to Dr. Newman.”

Patient: 3

This patient is 21 years old, 5’7″ tall and weighs 122 lbs. Although she knew she was thin, she felt that her hips were wide for her frame. She wanted a natural look that would make her whole body look more proportional.

Implants: 350cc High Profile Silicone Gel Implants placed Under the Muscle.

What this patient has to say about her surgery:

“I was very nervous before I came to Dr. Newman to discuss breast implants. He called me before I even came in for my first appointment and this made me much more comfortable. I wanted breast augmentation to give me a natural sexy look and this is exactly what I got. I was very worried that implants would make me look heavier. Dr. Newman explained how, in my case, high profile implants would give me the size I was looking for without making me look heavier. His staff was also really helpful.

Patient: 4

This patient is a 21 year-old woman 5’4″ tall 122 lbs. who request a small augmentation with a natural shape and very little upper breast roundness.

Implants: 210cc Round Smooth Saline placed under the muscle.

What this patient has to say about their surgery:

“I started out completely flat-chested and just wanted something so I can feel a little feminine. Dr. Newman showed me lots of pictures and suggested to me that I go a little larger than we did. I was stubborn and felt that it would be greedy if I went any larger. I love my result and, yes, I do wish I went a bit larger. Dr. Newman did my mother’s breast augmentation so this was the best recommendation I could ever get. I would recommend him to anyone as he was the only surgeon I went to who actually listened to what I wanted. “

Patient: 5

This patient is 5’11″ tall and didn’t want to be larger than a B-cup. Patients like her who are tall and thin frequently feel that their hips are big. She had the typical experience when buying dresses- if the hips fit properly then the chest was too large. The real issue with her proportions is not that her hips are wide, rather that her chest is narrow. Her implants were placed not just to make her breasts larger, but also to make her chest appear slightly wider. The end result is that she feels her breasts are larger and also that her hips are smaller! In the photos, compare her waist before and after her surgery. During a consultation for breast augmentation I typically will discuss not only breast shape and size, but also body proportions.

Implants: Smooth Round Silicone Placed Under the Muscle- 350cc

What this patient has to say about her surgery:

“I saw four doctors before deciding on Dr. Newman. Initially, I was asking for liposuction for my hips and waist because I hated the way certain clothing fit me. Dr. Newman was the only doctor who looked at my body and not just my hips. I know that I’m blessed being tall and thin, and friends of mine can’t understand why it’s hard for me to find clothing that fits properly. Dr. Newman seemed to understand this and the plan he suggested made so much sense. I now feel that my upper body and lower body are in much better proportion- and my surgery had nothing to do with my hips! Thanks Dr. Newman for truly understanding my issue. I now have more confidence and I look great! I only wish I listened to you and went a little larger! This surgery was the best decision I ever made.”

Patient: 6

This patient is 31 years old 5’6″ tall and very athletic. She wanted a result from breast augmentation that was natural in appearance and feel, that would not interfere with working out.

Implants: Round Smooth Silicone Implants placed Under the Muscle- 325cc

What this patient has to say about her surgery:

“Three of my friends already had their surgery before I thought about it for myself. They used three different surgeons in Manhattan and were all unhappy with their results. I was referred to Dr. Newman by my Gynecologist whose wife herself had surgery with Dr. Newman. I figured this was the best referral I could possibly get. I felt that Dr. Newman truly took the time to understand my concerns and I consulted with him five times before going through with it. I am so happy with my results. I’m a gym fanatic and I was back to the gym working out everything other than my chest in less than a week! I am writing this about a year after my surgery and Dr. Newman has already operated on four of my friends. I recommend him without question.”

Patient: 7

Patient is a 28 year-old woman 5’5″ tall, 120 lbs. interested in increasing her breast size while retaining a natural shape and non-surgical appearance.

Implants: 240cc saline placed under the muscle.

What this patient has to say about their surgery:

“Dr. Newman was the third of four doctors I met with. He was the first to understand the differences between my two breasts and had ideas about how to make this difference less obvious. My recovery was fast and I flew on a business trip on the fourth day after my surgery. I did have a little more swelling on the right side than the left, but this resolved by about the end of the second week. I love my result, especially the fact that no one knows that I had surgery unless I tell them. I seem to be telling everyone though. If I had the chance to do this again I would have gone just a bit larger.”

Patient: 8

This patient is a 29 year old woman 5’3″ tall who works out a lot and has very developed chest (pectoral) muscles. Her breasts were very small to start with and wanted to be a full C-cup and this presented a dilemma. It was my feeling that an implant large enough to make her a C-cup would be a very tight fit under her thick chest muscle and would likely be uncomfortable with the level of upper-body exercise she’s used to. My suggestion was either to place the implants over her muscle, or to use smaller implants under the muscle. With her low percentage body fat I also felt that placing the implants over the muscle would give her a very round unnatural appearance. Together we decided to put smaller implants in under the muscle and she requested that I decide on a final size for her during surgery. The plan was to use the largest implant that I felt fit comfortably under the muscle. Her result is that she’s a large B-cup for her frame and has a shape that appears a little ‘tight’ that will ‘soften up’ over time (this is seen in the first set of photos below.) Her ability to exercise is not affected and she understands that in time, once the muscle stretches out, these implants can be changed for a larger size. She is very happy with her result but does wish she was bigger. It’s important to know that this surgery was performed before silicone breast implants were re-approved for cosmetic procedures. If silicone implants were available for this patient I believe they would have been a better choice and that she would have achieved a much ‘softer’ appearance.

Implants used: Round Smooth Saline Implants placed Under the Muscle- 250cc

What this patient has to say about their surgery:

“This surgery was the best thing I have ever done. As a personal trainer it was important to me that surgery wouldn’t interfere with working out. Dr. Newman operated on friends of mine who are also trainers and they look great. It was so impressive to me that he took so much time explaining my options and I honestly went back and forth about placing my breast implants over or under the muscle. I love my result, especially that I kept an ‘athletic’ appearance in clothing. Honestly, I do wish I went a bit bigger but I agree with Dr. Newman that it would haven given me a really fake appearance. I’m thinking about changing them to larger silicone implants that Dr. Newman feels will now fit under my muscle. Unfortunately, when I did my surgery, silicone implants were not yet available. Before my surgery I was almost completely flat and, although I worked out all the time, I never really liked my body. Now I find myself loving the way I look and showing everyone! Thanks Dr. Newman!

Patient: 9

This patient is a 29 year old woman 5’3″ tall who wanted a result specifically with fullness at the bottom of her breast. She was very worried about looking too round, especially at the upper part of the breast. She has friends who have had breast augmentation and feels that they all look ‘unnatural’ and this is what has stopped her from having breast augmentation herself up to now.

What this patient has to say about their surgery:

“I have wanted breast implants for years and I never did it because I didn’t want to look fake. I have friends who have had it done and, in my opinion, none of them look natural. I went to four other doctors, three in Manhattan and one in Westchester before I saw Dr. Newman. The other doctors showed me one or two pictures and really didn’t impress me. Dr. Newman showed me an album with about a hundred pictures of patients, some that looked exactly like me before surgery and with exactly what I was looking for as a result. He was the only doctor that made me feel like he even understood what I was asking for! I came back to see Dr. Newman four times before I finally booked my surgery, and I was impressed by the amount of time he spent with me. I wanted a result that looked great, but also that looked natural not fake. I finally had my surgery with Dr. Newman and I wish I had done this years ago! My result is exactly what I was looking for and I feel like this has changed my life. It’s not just about looking good for me. My surgery has given me a level of confidence I never really had before. I recommend breast augmentation to anyone considering it and I recommend Dr. Newman absolutely.”

Patient: 10

This patient is a 22 year old woman who wanted a modest result that would fit her proportions. She’s only 5’1″ and was very concerned that implants would make her look heavier. The implants were placed not just to make her larger, but also to give the appearance that her chest is a bit wider. The result is that, proportionally, she feels that she now has a waist and a thinner appearance.

Implants: Round Smooth Saline Implants placed Under the Muscle- 250cc

What this patient has to say about their surgery:

“Two of my friends have had breast augmentation surgery and, by my standards, they’re both huge. This wasn’t what I was looking for. I really wanted a result that was natural and fit my body. When I first met Dr. Newman I told him that I wanted a result that no one could even tell were implants. He joked with me and said that once I had my surgery I’d be telling everyone. The funny thing is that he was right! I now have the shape that I want and I went from wearing one-piece bathing suits to bikinis I never even dreamed I would wear! One of my two friends has already come to Dr. Newman because she wasn’t really happy with her shape after all. If you’re thinking about having breast augmentation surgery you should speak to Dr. Newman. He really knew how to give me the result I was looking for.”

Patient: 11

This patient is a 27 year-old woman 5’6″ tall, 128 lbs. She wanted a natural look that would look good in a sexy outfit, yet appropriate in a business suit.

Implants: 270 cc round smooth saline placed under the muscle.

What this patient has to say about their surgery:

“I am an attorney and I was concerned that my result would be so obvious that I would be uncomfortable at work. Dr. Newman met with me six times before my surgery, as I was very unsure about the size. He urged me to have implants that were a little bigger than what I was stating and he was right. I’m glad I went a little bigger. I had pain under the side of my breasts for about two weeks, although I was back at work on the third day after my surgery. I had some numbness in my right nipple for about two months, but now I have more feeling in both nipples than I had before.”

Patient: 12

This patient is a 44 year-old woman 5’4″ tall 118 lbs. She presents with skin that is stretched and breasts that are widely separated. The left breast is clearly larger with fullness below the nipple not present on the right breast. A slightly larger implant was used on the left side and a dual-plane breast augmentation technique was used to raise the left breast slightly compared to the right. A larger implant would have been needed to move her breasts closer together but this is not what she desired.

Implants: 300/325cc Round Smooth Saline placed under the muscle. Dual Plane Technique on Left.

What this patient has to say about her surgery:

“I went to two other doctors for consultations after I spoke to Dr. Newman. Honestly, Dr. Newman was a bit pricey! Neither surgeon even mentioned a way to treat the difference in my two breasts other than to just use different sized implants. One thought my only option was to do breast lifts. Dr. Newman explained the differences between my breasts to me in a way that made me understand my options. He felt that he could get a result on my left breast that, although maybe not perfect, would correct my issue enough to make me happy, while avoiding the scars of a breast lift. In the end, I’m thrilled. I feel like, although I paid a bit more than I expected, I got what I paid for. I’m happier than I expected to be with my new breasts! I would recommend Dr. Newman to anyone.”

Patient: 13

This patient is a 42 year old woman 5’7″ tall. She wanted to be larger with a natural shape, but wanted a result that would not interfere with exercise. She had one child and feels that she’s lost most of her fullness in the upper part of her breasts. She likes to wear clothing that’s a bit revealing and wants to look good in both a bathing suit and work clothes.

Implants: Saline Implants Placed Under the Muscle- 320cc

What this patient has to say about their surgery:

“I live in Florida and I came up to see Dr. Newman because a friend of mine had her surgery with him. I was so impressed with the time he gave me on the phone before we ever met. In fact, I sent him photos by email and he called me to discuss my case before I ever came to see him in New York. He really gave me a lot of his time and went through many photos to be sure he understood what I wanted. Living in South Florida I know many women with implants and I’m not happy with most of what I see. I found Dr. Newman to be a bit more expensive than the typical Florida doctor and, now that I have had my surgery, I think my choice was the right one. I got exactly what I was looking for and I’m glad Dr. Newman talked me into being a bit larger than what I was first considering.

I also was considering liposuction for my stomach and Dr. Newman actually talked me out of doing it! He explained that I’d probably like my stomach better once I have my breast augmentation and that he would put my implants in slightly differently to achieve this. Whatever he did worked and I’m glad I took his advice. I now have friends from Florida going up to New York to see him. It’s time for Dr. Newman to open an office in Florida!”
