Breast Augmentation

This is an efficient way for you to gain more confidence by enhancing your breast shape and volume.

What is it?

Old age, pregnancies, weight loss, or other desires and needs may have you feeling conscious about your physique. Not to worry, that is precisely what we are here for. Here at Los Angeles Breast Surgeon, we offer the best breast augmentation to uplift your mood along with your figure.

Dissatisfaction with breast size, shape, or volume often leads people to consider the option of plastic surgery. Augmentation mammoplasty, more commonly known as breast augmentation, is an ideal way for you to feel confident again in your own skin.

It is a surgical procedure that uses implants to increase breast size, add volume, and improve the shape and proportions of breasts.

Apart from enhancing one’s figure, breast augmentation is also a savior for those battling aging, the effects of weight fluctuations, and pregnancy.

How the Procedure Works

  • Before & Preparation

A consultation will be the first step on your journey to attaining your idealized figure.

For your consultation, you will be asked about your medical history to ensure that the procedure is safe to perform. The surgeon will also go over your options for breast augmentation which will include the type of implants best suited to your desires, your incision and implant placement options, and the size that you want.

Not only this, but your surgeon will also help you explore other cosmetic procedures that may work well according to your desired results.

We understand that the matter at hand is a private one. That is why we aim to provide a comfortable space for our patients to freely express their concerns and our extremely helpful surgeons provide their best professional advice.

Surgeries can be anxiety-provoking for the patient. In order to relieve some of this anxiety, we guide our patients well before coming in for surgery. Some of these guidelines include:

  • Patients will be required to get a medical evaluation and a baseline mammogram.
  • Medication may be prescribed to the patients or their current medication may be adjusted.
  • Patients will be required to quit smoking prior to their surgery.
  • Patients must avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements since they can increase bleeding.

Patients will also be given specific guidelines relating to diet and pre-operation care.

  • During the Procedure

The procedure lasts for approximately 2 to 3 hours during which the patient is placed under general anesthesia. An incision is made at the target area discussed with the patient during consultation, creating an empty pocket for the implant to be placed in. After the placement, the incision is closed in such a way as to lead to minimal scarring.

  • Aftercare & Recovery

It is advised that the patient arranged transport to and from the clinic on the day of the surgery and has someone accompany them for the first few days. We also guide our patients about their diet plans after surgery along with monitoring them closely for a smooth recovery.

The patient will be sore for the first week after surgery. Tailored bras, lymphatic massage, lasers for bruising, and guided meditations greatly help reduce the discomfort felt after the procedure is done.

Treatment Areas

We offer four incision options which include periareolar, inframammary, transaxillary, and umbilical. Although all options can be applied successfully, the right one for you will depend on your anatomy, preference, type of implant used, and ultimate cosmetic goals.

  1. Periareolar: In periareolar surgery, an incision is performed near the areola’s outer edge, typically in the form of a semicircle on the areola’s bottom curve. Due to the location of the incision, where the skin naturally changes color and texture, the benefit of this type of incision is that scars are typically effectively disguised. Furthermore, because the incision is so close to the implant location, precise implant placement is possible.
  2. Inframammary: Incisions made in the crease where the bottom portion of the breast meets the chest are known as inframammary incisions. This choice appeals to a lot of patients because scars can be readily concealed. Additionally, it allows for accurate implant placement, just like periareolar incisions.
  3. Transaxillary: The incision is made in the armpit when choosing the transaxillary method, essentially paving the way to the implant site. There are no scars on the breasts after this type of surgery. Additionally, this incision is less likely to harm mammary glands in women who intend to breastfeed in the future.
  4. Umbilical: An endoscope is inserted through a small incision made on the navel during umbilical breast augmentation. Finally, using the endoscope as a guide, the surgeon inserts saline implants all the way into the implant site through the incision. This technique, like the transaxillary incision, basically leaves the breasts unaltered because there won’t be any scars.

Implant positioning is also one of the many options that must be explored before undergoing breast augmentation surgery. Here, one has to decide whether the implant will be located in front of the pectoral muscle or behind it.

As long as there is as much tissue as possible over the implant, producing a natural appearance, women with little to no breast tissue often benefit from having the implant inserted under the muscle. Breast implants that are positioned over a muscle will move less when the muscle contracts, but they will ripple more and appear less realistic.

Am I a good Candidate?

You may be a great candidate for this procedure if your breasts are sagging, flattened, extended, asymmetrical, or missing proper cleavage or volume.

If you want to flaunt your figure and are dissatisfied with how it currently appears, breast augmentation may be the right fit for you. It will have you feeling bold and beautiful again without having to be conscious about your looks. You can contact us to know more or visit us to have an in-depth consultation.

Similar & Related Procedures

Fat Grafting or Lipoaugmentation is another way you can achieve similar goals of breast augmentation. Breast size can be increased gradually, naturally, and subtly using “lipoaugmentation.” When fat is transferred to the breasts, it is taken from another part of the body using a delicate liposuction method. The main donor areas for fat cell harvesting are the thighs, buttocks, or love handles. After that, the fat cells are cleaned and refined. To generate a perfectly natural, gentle increase in breast size that will last a lifetime, tiny droplets of fat are then injected into the breasts where they integrate with the pre-existing fatty tissue. The additional benefit of this surgery is the slimming of the waist, thighs, or buttocks.

Breast lift is also a procedure that can be used for the enhancement of breast shape. For example, a breast lift coupled with a breast augmentation is the perfect duo to solve the problem of sagging breasts. Breast augmentation alone may not be able to address this issue.

A breast augmentation revision surgery may also be needed after some time in order to revive and rejuvenate the appearance of your breasts.

Side Effects & Risks

For healthy individuals, breast augmentation is typically a safe process, but there are potential dangers as with any surgery. By selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon and according to any preoperative and postoperative recommendations, you can lower your risk of facing problems.

Some of the risk factors involved in pursuing breast augmentation are the following:

  • Poor healing and scarring
  • Infection
  • A temporary or long-term shift in the breast or nipple sensation
  • Contraction of the capsule
  • A broken implant
  • The skin over the implant is wrinkling or developing dimples.
  • Negative effects of anesthesia
  • A buildup of fluid
  • Clots of blood
  • Chronic discomfort
  • Problems related to cardiac, pulmonary, and deep vein thrombosis
  • The potential for breast asymmetries
  • A potential breast revision procedure


In addition to the aforementioned concerns, it’s crucial to keep in mind that breast implants do not last a lifetime, and you will probably need to have another procedure at some point to either replace or remove your implants. Additionally, over time, the appearance of enhanced breasts may be affected by a pregnancy, hormonal changes, and major weight fluctuations. Fortunately, if your breasts have been affected by age, you can get another breast augmentation done to give them a more attractive shape.
