At puberty, most men and women are ashamed to talk about their changing bodies, especially if they start to notice anything that may be abnormal. When it comes to our mental sanity about our bodies, all women have wished they could change something – often times the first thing women want to change is their breasts. Most women think their breasts are either too small, not perky enough, too saggy, the nipples are too big or breasts just look asymmetrical. However, most people are unaware of the fact that some of these traits are symptoms of structural abnormality during the growth of your breasts called tuberous breasts.

tuberous breasts dr naidu in New York

When your breasts are developing there is a stymie and the breasts are unable to develop normally and fully. The exact cause of tuberous breasts is unclear, however, a study done on the cells of breasts in men and women with tubular breasts suggest that it is due to a genetic link in collagen deposition. The actual number of tubular breast cases is unknown because every patient does not seek help for correcting this issue, however, 5% of breast augmentation patients come in to treat this condition.

Tuberous breasts most often appear underdeveloped, not simply small, however, the appearance can range from mild to severe. Typical characteristics of tubular breasts are enlarged/ puffy areola, unusually wide spacing between the breasts, minimal breast tissue, sagging, higher than normal breast fold and narrow base at the chest wall.

Most tubular breast patients in New York don’t know that  the condition can affect the ability of women to breastfeed because the glands that produce milk are not developed enough to produce breast milk. The psychological effects of this condition can lead to psychosexual problems and abnormal social behavior. If you would like to learn more about tuberous breast surgery contact a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in breast surgery.

Breast implant removal has been a growing trend in the recent years. Women are mostly finding that their body is changing and either cannot support the breasts they have acquired or are unsatisfied with their initial breast augmentation results. In a recent article posted by, the infamous Heidi Montag of “The Hills” captured the media’s attention when she underwent a dramatic serious of surgeries including a massive breast augmentation with F-size implants. Fast forward to 2013, Montag was informed by her specialist that her implants were displacing which results in the loss of tissue support at the bottom half of the breast and can mean the implant moves downward on the chest. In doing so, Heidi has joined a plethora of female celebrities who all have had the breast implant removal procedure done.

The New York Times article states Jean-Claude Mas, 74, has been sentenced to four years in prison for selling hundreds of thousands of defective breast implants tin more than 65 countries world-wide. The court has found that the company used a less expensive, industrial-grade silicone to fill implants for a decade. The implants subsequently rupture at a much high rate than the industry norm, leaking silicone into body tissues.

More than 16,000 women have had their implants removed since the scandal emerged in 2010. About 300,000 women around the world received the implants.

In light of this story, it has become even more important to be aware of not only the products you put into your body but also the surgeon performing a breast augmentation on your body. It is no surprise that a breast augmentation or breast lift is a popular procedure. Because of this the ASAPS, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery continuously and frequently advises consumers on the importance of having a board certified plastic surgeon perform your procedures.

Finding a plastic surgeon that is board certified in your area is not difficult to do. Simply by searching board certified plastic surgeons in your area or going to ASAPS’ website will lead you to a surgeon that you feel safe with performing surgery on your body.

It is obvious her expertise is performing breast augmentation in New York but also performing less common breast procedures such as breast asymmetry, male breast reduction or Tuberous Breast Surgery.

The importance of doing your research when it comes to performing surgical or non-surgical procedures on your body has become exponentially important in the recent years because of the rise of fraudulent practices coming to light. The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has specific “Patient Safety Tips” for consumers who are looking to find a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Breast augmentation was the most popular cosmetic plastic surgical procedure in the USA last year. More than a quarter of a million breast augmentation procedures were performed in the United States alone last year. One of the biggest concerns for women considering breast augmentation is to select the perfect breast implant. Check out this Infographic provided by a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in breast augmentation in Columbus, Ohio to learn more about the different options of implants available today.

Any type of cosmetic plastic surgery is a big deal. Plastic surgery is not like how you see it done on TV. Unlike non-surgical procedures such as Botox injections or even laser treatments, plastic surgery is surgical, invasive, and will result in pain. Because of this, it is important to liken plastic surgery to medical surgery as it comes with the same health risks. In order to properly prepare for your breast augmentation surgery it very important to have questions ready for your surgeon and to have these questions answered before performing the surgery.

Find the Right Surgeon

Before any plastic surgery, your first step is to find the right surgeon for you. This surgeon must be properly trained with experience and proper certification. The American Society of Aesthetic Plastic surgery has recently published a press release advising consumers to carefully choose the personnel who administer injections like Botox. There have been many incidents in the recent news of breast augmentations gone wrong that have even lead to death because of unqualified and untrained professionals. For example, a woman in New Jersey is suing her plastic surgeon because of an eyelid procedure that went tragically wrong. The women is now unable to fully closer her eyes, even why she sleeps. This is why the first step is to do you r research and find a plastic surgeon that is qualified, trained with experience and has the proper certifications. This poor women should have certainly chosen a different, qualified, trained, board certified New Jersey plastic surgeon. An easy way to do this is to search “breast augmentation + your city”. For example, if you were looking for a breast augmentation plastic surgeon in New Jersey, you would simple search for “breast augmentation New Jersey”. The results will be overwhelming but it will help you get to where you need to be. Once you have a list of surgeons, you can check their references by either going through ASPS or ASAPS’s “Find a Surgeon” search. The surgeons on the ASPS and ASAPS website are all board certified plastic surgeons with the correct requirements and certification

Research, Research, Research

Breast augmentation surgery is very serious although it is one of the most common and popular procedure. Because of this, it is again important to do your research on breast augmentations, breast implants, your size, things to do before, and what to expect after your surgery. This can also be done with an easy search just to give yourself a guideline of what you would like to be done to your breasts. A great website to go to for questions, information, and answers from patients and plastic surgeons is This website is used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons, dentist, and real people like you with thousands of questions.  Compile a list of questions you want further more personal information ready for your surgeon. This list should include questions about breast implant sizes, breast implant types, downtime, medications, recovery time, pain, and what to expect before, during, and after your surgery.

Before and After Gallery

Before calling the plastic surgeons office, another important step is to view your list of surgeons’ websites to see if they have a “before and after” gallery. Plastic surgeons usually have many before and after pictures from their patients they have received permission from on their website. This is important for the surgeon as he shows the type of work he does and the quality of it and it is important for the patient as he/she will be able to decide if the surgeon’s quality of work is exceptional enough for the patient. Another benefit for the patient is that it gives you a realistic idea of what you can expect from the surgery.


Once you’ve researched your surgeons and breast augmentations in your local area, the next thing to do is to compile a list of question you have that you didn’t get answered from the internet or by the website from the plastic surgeon(s) you chose. In this case, take your list of surgeons and your list of questions to each of these surgeons and have your free one-on-one consultation with each surgeon.  Most plastic surgeons provide free consultation appointments to answer any question you have about the procedure, questions on your plastic surgeon, or even advice. The most important part of this consultation is vetting your plastic surgeon, ensuring he known what he is talking about, vetting his facilities and his staff, and ensuring you see the certifications and education he has received.



Into to Breast Augmentations

Most women who are considering breast augmentations know what they want in their body image but they’re not quite sure how to achieve it or what is the best route. It is common for a women’s breast to be different sizes, this can be resolved with a breast augmentation or a breast lift. Some women want a breast enlargement, some women may need breast reconstruction surgery or some want breast reduction because of back pain. Before you have these procedures there are many factors to consider. When choosing breast augmentations, size and type are huge factors but there are also many other factors that need to be recognized such as a realistic vision or the dangers of the procedures. Here is a quick guide to all things breast augmentation so you can get started on the body you have always wanted.

First Things First

You need to find a surgeon. You can always research breast augmentations online but it is best and the most helpful if you speak to a surgeon you trust. You are putting your life and body at risk so having a top surgeon is important. Finding a board certified plastic surgeon near you is the most difficult part of the process. Women want someone they trust, respect and who is local which is why a woman in Kansas or California would search for breast augmentations Kansas City or breast augmentations California and would then find her doctor on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons website. This is important as it ensures that your surgeon has the right credentials, experience, and continues to re-certify him/herself on their practice. Being an ASPS member ensures that your surgeon:

–          Has at least six years of surgical training, with 3 years specifically in plastic surgery

–          Is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery

–          Operates only in accredited medical facilities

–          Adheres to a strict code of ethics

–          Fulfills continuing education requirements

“I want to have a C-cup”

Next, you need to be able to express how you would like your breasts to look like. The tough part is cup-sizes are not the greatest indicator of what your breasts will look like after the procedure. Better descriptive words are proportion and shape rather than cup sizes. This is because all bra manufacturers make their bras in different ways and all women also wear their bras in different ways. The good news is that your surgeon will have a few samples for you to try out. Your plastic surgeon will have a good amount of silicone implant sizers for you to try out when you go in for a consultation and most likely they will have a “Before and After” gallery where you can view your surgeons previous work. When you are trying on sizes you’ll want to consider your entire body image, not just your chest and up. You’ll want to consider your body frame, your weight, height, shoulder width, hip width, and your current breast size when choosing an implant to ensure you are completely proportional. Implant sizes are based on the amount of fluid or gel in the implant and can start from as small as 125cc and up. A few tips on choosing the right size are:

–          Bring in a few outfits that you would wear to a casual event, formal event, or job interview to help visualize what you would look like and to make sure the implants are comfortable with those outfits

–          Bring a friend with you to help choose what size implants you would like, they can point out factors you might not have thought about and can offer better advice as a friend who knows you well.

–          Be realistic- you are not just only picking implants for today and tomorrow but instead you are picking a size for forever. Picking implants that may be too big for your body frame can lead to back pain and sagging later on in life.

–          Exercise- if you are regularly active, make sure to take movement in account. You will want to choose implants that won’t interfere with your workout routines.

Saline vs. Silicone

The next question after you have tried on and picked your implant size is to decide whether you want saline filled or silicone filled breast implants. Saline implants are very popular and were first introduced in 1965 as an alternative to silicone implants. Their outer shells are the same but instead, saline implants are filled with saline at the time of surgery.

The advantages of saline implants are:

–          There is a smaller incision, therefor you have a smaller scar

–          They cost less

–          It is obvious if you have a deflation in your saline implants

–          They have a salt water filler

–          They have a greater variety in size because the fill level is adjustable

The disadvantages of saline implants are:

–          They can cause rippling,

–          For the most part they require sub-muscular placement

–          They are also firmer implants so they don’t feel as natural

Silicone implants were first introduced in 1962 and have been the subject to major controversies on the safety of the silicone implants. However, data has now found these implants to be proven safe for women over the age of 22. The reason being is that the FDA believes that some women do not complete their breast development until the age of 22. Silicone implants can be used for women seeking breast reconstructive surgery or the correction of breast asymmetry.

The advantages of silicone implants are:

–          They don’t ripple

–          They are more easily used above the muscle (sub-glandular)

–          The have a lower deflation rate

–          They are softer and have a more natural feel

The disadvantages of silicone implants are:

–          They require a longer incision, thus a longer scar

–          They cost more

–          It is harder to detect when the implants have ruptured.

Research, Research, Research…

There are many factors to consider when choosing a breast augmentation, just remember this is a quick guide and there is much more information out there so it is best to do all of your research before jumping into the surgeons chair. Breast augmentations are available everywhere in the world from breast augmentation Kansas City to breast lifts New York but the most important factor is to again, choose a surgeon who is board certified by the ASPS in your city.



There’s a common expression currently being floated out there in the world of plastic surgery referred to as a Mommy Makeover.  When I first heard this expression I thought it was similar to a makeover in the regular sense of the word (regular sense of the word for me means fashion, haircut, etc…).  So my thoughts were, “great this must be a makeover for moms who want to look better.”  I guess I was on the right track because it does actually mean that but that thought alone is a real understatement from the true sense of the expression.  Please read on to learn more about the real meaning of the term Mommy Makeover.

Mommy Makeover – The Perfect Solution For Those Moms That Want To Overhaul Their Appearance

A Mommy makeover in the world of plastic surgery actually refers to the combination of a few surgical procedures all in one go to get your pre-pregnancy body back.  Typically the procedures combined are;

  • Breast augmentation
  • Tummy tuck
  • Breast lift (optional)
  • Liposuction (optional)

So primarily people are referring to some sort of breast surgery combined with a tummy tuck when they use the term mommy makeover.  The other two I listed (breast lift or mastopexy and liposuction) can be combined to enhance the overall outcome but are not the norm for mommy makeover’s I believe.

What Type of Surgeon Performs Mommy Makeover’s ?

Plastic surgeons are the most qualified to perform mommy makeover surgery and more specifically you should only be considering board certified plastic surgeons with clean records.  When you consider a specific surgeon you’ll want to make sure that you like their portfolio of work or otherwise referred to as before and after photo’s.  The before and after’s are typically posted on their website and when you visit for an in person consultation they should have photo books to present to you for examination.

Now, you’ll definitely want to see a category of before and after photo’s specifically for mommy makeover but depending on the particular surgeon they may have the individual photos labeled by the individual surgery (ie…  breast aug, tummy tuck) rather than combined mommy makeover classification.










All signs point to a continuous increase in the number of women seeking breast augmentation in New York. After being frowned upon for decades, this treatment has matured to such a point that it has earned a degree of respect and eager curiosity from lots of people. Safety standards have gone up considerably since its early days in the 1960s and the results speak for themselves. Figures peg total annual cosmetic operations at almost a quarter of a million for the US alone. Reconstructive surgery, on the other hand, reaches almost a hundred thousand.

Advances in technology and proficiency have enabled the current crop of plastic surgeons in New York to do their work better than ever. Satisfied clients attest to having trouble-free breast augmentation that lasts for a long time. New York patients are fortunate to be in such close proximity to many of the field’s leading clinics. Find the right plastic surgeon New York; look for a doctor who has qualifications that are beyond reproach, preferably someone recommended by a knowledgeable friend. Experience should be among the top criteria and their body of work must be scrutinized. After all, this is a sensitive procedure that can have traumatic consequences if things go wrong.

It never hurts to be cautious. Women should cast as wide a net as possible when it comes to plastic surgery clinics to increase the chance for finding the best one for their needs. Don’t hesitate to ask for their educational background, work portfolio and additional references. Contact their old patients if possible for feedback, especially with regards to long-term results.

There are many reasons why people choose to undergo this type of cosmetic surgery. Often cited is that the aesthetic benefits translate to an inner confidence. Looking good has been shown to make individuals feel good about themselves. Many are willing to pay the price as long as this can be done without any detrimental effects on health. The chief concern is leakage which may result in the gel seeping through various parts of the body. The latest generation of breast implants has been made effectively leak-proof to address this. The caveat is that only those above the age of 22 can use this silicone implant.

Younger women who are similarly worried about leaks can avail of saline implants instead. While silicone is superior in feel, the saline type does not lag that far behind and has the benefit of being harmless even in the cause of a leak. The results are excellent when the operation is handled by a competent surgeon.

Looking for the best breast augmentation New Jersey has tooffer. Since the first cosmetic breast augmentation in 1962, cosmetic surgery has spiked in popularity and improved by quality and safety standards. From the 60’s through the 80’s there was a peculiar social stigma cast over the procedure. Today, over 200,000 American women receive breast implants every year for aesthetic purposes. Nearly 100,000 more women get implants for reconstructive purposes or post-mastectomy restoral.

The bottom line: today’s plastic surgeons perform long lasting, natural-feeling and safe breast augmentation. Las Vegas has a vast number of clinics to choose from. It’s important you chose a qualified, board-certified professional to give you the look and feel you deserve. New Jersey breast augmentation is a competitive market with many new doctors entering the field. Many women find it comforting to choose an experienced surgeon who has performed the procedure over 100 times. Experienced and precise doctors with steady hands often create implants with less chance of extraneous scarring, stretch marks, uneven size and other complications.

Breast augmentation in New Jersey is about as taboo these days as hair extensions and clip-on nails. Simply put, the technology, popularity and public familiarity have come a long way since its inception over 40 years ago. Health concerns from the 80’s have all but vanished when silicone implants moved into their fourth and fifth generation of design. Saline implants have also improved as a safe alternative, especially when leakage occurs.

When deciding on breast augmentation, Las Vegas residents have a few key factors to weigh. Where to get the procedure done is a big question, given the high volume of surgeons and clinics in the Las Vegas area. Make an informed choice by asking to see a portfolio of the surgeon’s previous work and talking to recipients of the procedure from that clinic.

When performed as a cosmetic surgery, augmentation can tremendously boost your self-confidence. The benefits are clear but there are few concerns. Chief among these are appearance, feeling, safety and Prospective women often enter clinics with a list of health concerns. The silicone implants of the 20th century were subject to potential leak and migration of gel throughout bodily tissue. The fifth generation silicone implants have virtually phased out leakage and migration. Silicone implants are only available to women over 22 in the US when the procedure is cosmetic.

Saline implants have evolved as well. They are more popular in the younger crowd because of a legal stipulation that prohibits silicone in women under 22 throughout the US. Overall, they are second in popularity to silicone implants in large part because many women claimed that silicone gel had a more natural-feel. The saline technique improved dramatically when surgeons began overfilling the implants and placing them under the pectoral muscles.

The choice between saline and silicone for breast implantations in New Jersey is chiefly about age and health concerns. With regards to leakage and migration, saline is safer. Silicone, on the other hand, has a preferred, natural feeling. In either case, make sure to shop around for a qualified, time-tested surgeon. Check for references, board certification and professional, courteous service when interacting with clinic staff.
