NJ Breast Augmentation Surgeon
David Evdokimow, MD
Although concepts of beauty change, full breasts have become the standard for sex appeal in America. Unfortunately, larger breast size isn't possible through exercise. Instead, breast size and shape are influenced by pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and aging. Now, full, shapely breasts are possible with breast augmentation in New Jersey with Dr. David Evdokimow.

Women generally seek breast augmentation for one of three reasons: they have always had underdeveloped breasts, they have experienced changes after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or they wish to improve breast size and shape for their own personal reasons. Women who are seeking breast augmentation in an attempt to save a relationship, or who were influenced by a significant other, need to recognize that breast augmentation does not save relationships and may need to reconsider their reasoning.
Your choice of surgeon for breast enlargement is vitally important. Dr. Evdokimow is a highly qualified and experienced NJ plastic surgeon who provides exceptional care and surgical results for his breast surgery patients, giving them the attractive new look they've always wanted. His practice has a special interest in breast surgery and is able to achieve beautiful, natural-looking results for his patients.
Before the Procedure
The questions you ask and the decisions you make before your breast augmentation largely determine the results. Through a careful physical exam and a thorough health history, Dr. Evdokimow will be able to help guide you through your options so that you can make wise decisions. (Remember the best results in breast augmentation are achieved during the first surgery.)
Physical Exam and Health History
During a physical exam, Dr. Evdokimow will look at breast shape (particularly the presence or absence of constricted breasts or tubular breast deformity), breast size, conditions involving the pectoral muscles or chest wall, the degree of asymmetry, the degree of sagging, breast masses, posture (especially shoulder position), and the presence of scoliosis.
During the discussion of your health history, Dr. Evdokimow will pay extra attention to certain factors. For instance, he will definitely want to know if you have a strong family history of breast cancer (especially a mother or grandmother with breast cancer, or a family member who developed breast cancer at an early age). You'll also be asked about whether you have a history of autoimmune disease (such as scleroderma, lupus, fibromyalgia, or rheumatoid arthritis, or others).
Dr. Evdokimow may order a mammogram prior to surgery. This is a good idea, especially for high-risk New Jersey breast augmentation patients, regardless of age. If the patient is below the recommended screening age, the mammogram may not be covered by insurance.
Understanding Breast Implants
Dr. Evdokimow is a seasoned professional with extensive experience and education to draw upon when assisting you with your choice of implants. With his honest advice and recommendations, you can be sure that you will be informed, confident and prepared to make this important decision.
Current technology has greatly increased the safety of breast implants. The new generation of silicone gel implants allows surgeons to achieve a more natural shape and feel for cosmetic and reconstructive purposes.
Breast implants (silicone or saline) do not cause cancer. Nor do they cause autoimmune disease or any other disease. However, surgery can affect a pre-existing autoimmune disease, so be sure to give Dr. Evdokimow a full health history.
A thorough explanation of the advantages and disadvantages of saline versus silicone breast implants, anatomic versus round breast implants, and textured versus smooth breast implants will be provided so that breast implants patients know all their options and can make the most appropriate choice . The advantages and disadvantages of the various options for access incisions will also be explained to each patient.
It's also very important for the surgeon to explain that there are no guarantees when it comes to: whether capsular contracture will develop, whether the breast will sag (with or without pregnancy and breastfeeding), and that change of nipple sensation is possible.
The placement of breast implants in New Jersey is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. For patients choosing combined procedures (such as breast augmentation and tummy tuck, for example) an overnight stay in the hospital may be required.
Several incision patterns are possible: through the fold between the chest wall and the breast, through the armpit (if this is the approach used, the creation of the pocket for the breast implant is assisted by a surgical camera), or around the nipple (this is usually used when a combination breast augmentation and breast lift is being performed).
After the incision is made, a pocket with the appropriate size and dimension for the chosen implant is created in the one of the following locations:
- Beneath the chest muscle (pectoralis muscle)
- Between the fascia (the layer of tissue covering the pectoralis muscle) and the muscle, so it is placed on the top surface of the chest muscle
- Directly beneath the breast tissue
After the pocket is created, the implant is inserted in the pocket in the appropriate position. If saline implants are used, the implant is inflated to the desired volume after it has been placed. For patients with significant asymmetry, the volume does not need to be the same for both breasts (within limits), even if the same size and shape of the implant is used. Silicone implants are pre-filled.
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure, which means that the patient is sent home after recovery from general anesthesia. Patients should expect normal physical activities to be resumed during the first week, and Dr. Evdokimow has had numerous breast implants patients who were able to go out to dinner the night of surgery. Despite this relatively quick recovery, it is highly recommended that strenuous physical activities involving the upper body be avoided for at least 4 weeks after surgery, especially if the implant was placed under the muscle.
Pain medication requirements are minimal. Even with a certain amount of swelling, you will see an immediate improvement in the size and shape of your breasts. Dr. Evdokimow will carefully monitor your progress to ensure that you are protecting your surgical results and not overexerting yourself.
When you choose Dr. Evdokimow as your breast enlargement surgeon in New Jersey, you are placing your trust in a highly skilled doctor who can create a new look that is a true reflection of your beauty and your personality.
In addition to helping breast augmentation NJ patients realize their dreams of larger, more feminine breasts, Dr. Evdokimow performs breast lift, breast reduction, nipple correction and breast reconstruction in New Jersey. He is also regarded as one of the more accomplished New Jersey male breast reduction surgeons.
