What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance your breasts’ size, shape, and fullness using implants or autologous fat transfer. The surgery offers a customizable approach to achieving your desired breast appearance. Breast augmentation provides a versatile solution for increasing volume and projection, restoring shape after life changes like pregnancy or weight loss, or balancing asymmetrical breasts. When performed by a qualified surgeon, this procedure can be transformative, boosting your self-confidence and improving your overall physical appearance.

What Issues Does Breast Augmentation in Los Angeles Improve?

Breast augmentation offers solutions for aesthetic and medical concerns, providing a multifaceted approach to enhancing your physical appearance and overall well-being.

Aesthetic Issues

  • Size enhancement: Augmentation is the go-to solution for those who desire fuller, larger breasts.
  • Shape correction: Breast augmentation can correct asymmetry or create a more rounded or contoured shape.
  • Volume restoration: Breast augmentation can restore lost volume due to aging or after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • Improved proportion: Achieve a more balanced and harmonious body contour by enhancing the breast size in relation to the hips and waist.

Medical Issues

  • Reconstruction: Breast augmentation serves as a reconstructive option for patients who have undergone a mastectomy or have congenital breast anomalies.
  • Confidence boost: While breast surgery is primarily cosmetic, the resulting boost in self-esteem and body image can positively impact your mental well-being.
  • Chronic pain relief: In some cases, breast augmentation can balance disproportionate weight and alleviate back or neck pain.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation in Beverly Hills?

Augmentation could be an option to consider if you want to enhance your breasts’ size, shape, or symmetry. Here are some other factors that determine suitable candidacy for breast augmentation.

  • Physical health: Being in good health is crucial when considering breast augmentation. The procedure involves anesthesia and surgical risks, so existing conditions like uncontrolled diabetes or cardiovascular issues should be well-managed beforehand. A clean bill of health makes you a more suitable candidate for a smoother surgical experience and better healing.
  • Age: The FDA recommends candidates should be at least 18 years old for saline implants and 22 years old for silicone implants. These recommendations are for regulatory reasons and because younger candidates may not have fully developed breast tissue, which could affect surgical and aesthetic outcomes.
  • Non-smoking: It’s well known that smoking interferes with the body’s natural healing process, leading to potential complications during and after surgery. For this reason, we advise smokers to quit well before the scheduled surgery to become a better candidate for the procedure.
  • Realistic expectations: Understanding breast augmentation limitations is essential for getting desirable results. The surgery can improve your appearance, but won’t necessarily change your life or how others perceive you. Make sure you’re pursuing this for your satisfaction and well-being, rather than succumbing to societal pressures or trying to achieve an unattainable ideal.

Breast Augmentation

On the day of your surgery, the medical team will administer anesthesia for your comfort. The procedural duration varies, typically lasting between one to three hours.

Immediate Post-Surgery and Recovery

Breast augmentation is generally an outpatient procedure, allowing you to go home the same day with a responsible friend or family member to drive you.

Once at home, you begin the recovery process. Expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, manageable with prescribed medications. You may also wear dressings or a surgical bra to support your new breast shape during initial healing.

Long-Term Follow-Ups and Results

Los Angeles Breast Augmentation FAQ

Breast augmentation is one of the most customizable plastic surgery procedures, so there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. In consultation with Dr. Stepanyan or Dr. Lee, you’ll need to decide whether you want a fat transfer or implants. If you opt for implants, your desired size, shape, material, and placement are also influencing factors. All the choices you make will affect your final price tag. You will receive a cost estimate during your consultation after discussing your goals and preferences with your surgeon.

The difference between a breast lift and a breast augmentation is that breast lift surgery repositions the breasts to sit higher on your chest. Aging, gravity, breastfeeding, and lost skin elasticity can all cause your breasts to droop and flatten. Unlike an augmentation procedure to enlarge your breasts, a breast lift will restore your youthful contours by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. This procedure is an excellent solution for women who wish to restore a firmer and more attractive shape. You can also combine a breast lift with an augmentation to address concerns like volume loss and asymmetry.

Though modern breast implant materials are long-lasting, they are not permanent medical devices. If you choose an augmentation with implants, you can expect them to last a decade or more. Possible leakage and rupture remain leading reasons for implant removal and replacement. The FDA recommends periodic breast MRI scans to detect asymptomatic implant rupture with silicone implants. If you have concerns about this potential complication, ask your surgeon during your consultation.

The procedure typically lasts between one and three hours. After placing the implants in the desired location, your surgeon will meticulously close the incisions and apply dressings to facilitate healing. Once you wake up from anesthesia and are medically stable, you can return home the same day with a responsible friend or family member to drive you.

You will be under general anesthesia during surgery, ensuring a painless procedure. After the anesthesia wears off, you will experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which you can manage with the medications we prescribe you.

 

Part of recovering from breast augmentation surgery is giving yourself time to adjust. You may get tired more easily as your body devotes more energy to healing. Rest, avoid excessive stress, stay hydrated, and eat a nutritious diet. If you choose augmentation with implants, you can expect them to settle into a more natural-looking position as your skin and muscles acclimate.
