Breast Augmentation with Breast Implants

During your consultation at Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, your plastic surgeon will examine you and discuss recommendations for implant and incision placement to yield the best results. We perform breast augmentation using both saline and silicone implants. The procedure is usually done as an outpatient, under general anesthesia administered by a physician anesthesiologist to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Most patients have very little pain following the surgery as well because long-acting local anesthetic is administered as part of the procedure. Most patients return to work about a week after surgery. There may be some bruising for a week or so and some swelling for a few weeks following surgery.

Women choose to have breast augmentation for different reasons. Some desire larger breasts. Others want to replace breast contour that is often lost during pregnancy. In the procedure, an implant is placed underneath the breast tissue. Sometimes it is placed under the chest muscles. The choice of implant position is based on the shape of your current breast, the amount of breast tissue and overall body size. Incisions are made in one of three locations: Under the nipple, under the breast or in the underarm. Again, the choice of incision position is based on current body and breast shape. Most of our breast augmentations use our “Silent Scar” technique to help hide the scar. You can read comprehensive information about breast enhancement at our Breast Augmentation Information Center including the latest information on silicone breast implants which were recently approved by the FDA

Breast Lift in Beverly Hills – Los Angeles

As women age, their breasts may sag somewhat. This can be exacerbated by pregnancy or nursing. In these situations, many women enjoy beneficial results from a breast lift or “mastopexy.” In this procedure, the skin of the breast is tightened to return the breast to a more youthful shape, firmness, and position. Sometimes an implant is placed as part of the procedure to increase breast volume. Incisions are usually around the nipple and sometimes extend down to the underside of the breast. There are a lot of options in breast lift surgery, and at Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery we will work with you to choose the approach that will create the best results. Some women may be candidates for a breast reduction procedure rather than a lift.
