I also had my lips plumped by Nurse Christina- great work - doctor Kaplan and staff are the best!"- M.B. / Google / Jul 30, 2021
"Dr Kaplan and his staff are amazing! I travel an hour and a half from south Jersey to see him and it is well worth the drive! They are friendly, helpful, and always make me feel comfortable and I walk out feeling better than when I arrived. Dr Kaplan is more than a Dr. He is an artist and he takes his time to make sure every detail and angle and the overall look of my face is improved with the injectable procedures I have had including facial and nasolabial enhancements. I am planning to move out of state soon and will definitely plan to travel even further to see him again if needed in the future!"- L.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2021

The Breast Augmentation Surgery
Most breast augmentations are performed under general anesthesia. An incision is usually made in the inframammary crease (the folder under the breast) or within the Areola, depending on preoperative breast shape and size. The implant will either be placed above or below the muscle depending on the preoperative examination.
Recovery From a Breast Augmentation
Some swelling, bruising, or soreness is typical after surgery but will decline over several days. Dr. Kaplan’s gentle surgical techniques will allow you able to resume your normal daily activities in about a week. More strenuous exercise or heavy lifting should be avoided for up to 4 to 6 weeks.
Our postoperative Scar Prevention Protocol has been refined to limit scarring and capsule formation for optimal results.
