Breast Augmentation in Beverly Hills
Breast augmentation with implants, often referred to as breast enlargement, or colloquially as a ‘boob job’, is one of the most popular procedures at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery here in Beverly Hills – in fact, it has been the top cosmetic surgical procedure in the States every year since 2006.
Breast augmentation is a very personal surgery. Each patient is unique, and the surgeon must take into account the patient’s anatomy, physiology, desires, and expectations to create the best plan for optimal results. Because of this, it’s important to choose a board-certified surgeon with a high level of experience – not just in breast augmentation surgery itself, but in helping patients choose which procedure is right for them, and guiding them through the process skillfully.
Dr. Steve Svehlak and Dr. Dan Yamini offer breast augmentation surgery with implants at Sunset Cosmetic Surgery in Los Angeles. With their in-depth knowledge of breast augmentation techniques, they can achieve well-hidden incisions, natural-looking implant placement, and custom implant sizes and types for each patient based on her goals, body type and lifestyle.
What Is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Put simply, breast augmentation surgery involves a surgeon making an incision, creating a pocket where the implant will sit, and then inserting the implant to sit evenly and naturally. However, there are a number of factors and considerations that go into breast augmentation in order to achieve the patient’s desired results and ensure a natural look – such as the size, type, and shape of the implant, where the implant will be placed, and the incision location.
Who Makes A Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?
If a woman is unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of her breasts, breast augmentation surgery may be an option. The most common reasons women choose to have breast implants is to increase the size of their breasts, have reconstruction after a mastectomy, regain size or shape after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or to rectify asymmetry in the breasts. However, you will need to refrain from or delay breast augmentation if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have breast cancer or an abnormal mammogram, or are currently ill or treating infection.
Types Of Breast Implants
There are two types of breast implants: saline-filled (saltwater solution) and silicone gel-filled. Both have a silicone outer shell and can vary in size, shell thickness, shell surface texture, and shape (contour) to achieve the patient’s desired look and feel.
At a consultation with Dr. Svehlak or Dr. Yamini, up to an hour will be scheduled in order to understand the reasons for wanting surgery, address any concerns and questions, discuss the available or appropriate procedures, and undergo an exam to make sure the size and types of breast implants are exactly what the patient has in mind.
What To Expect With Breast Augmentation Surgery
On the day of your surgery, your surgeon and team will ensure you are calm and comfortable throughout the procedure, and afterward. Breast augmentation surgery usually takes approximately two hours, and you will be placed under anesthesia.
After the surgery, you will have to wear a special surgical bra and/or tape for several weeks to minimize swelling and support your breasts. You may feel tired, and your breasts will feel tender for 24 to 48 hours post-surgery. To help your body heal, it is recommended you take one to two weeks off work and normal activity, and not return to any strenuous activity for at least six weeks.
