If you are interested in breast augmentation and have questions about the types of breast implants available to you. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Andrew Ordon or Nathaniel Villanueva, two of the best Beverly Hills Breast Augmentation Experts.
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular types of plastic surgery in the country. When it comes to breast augmentation Beverly Hills is the place to go to add size to your breasts and aid in the correction of breast asymmetry.
Many women choose breast augmentation after pregnancy and breastfeeding, especially as a part of a mommy makeover because it helps to restore their breasts to pre-childbirth shape.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that alters the shape of a woman’s breast, increases its size, and transforms the overall texture. There are many reasons why women decide to get a breast augmentation, including to restore volume after pregnancy or weight loss, wanting to improve symmetry and disproportion in size and shape, or get better breast contours after breast cancer or due to abnormalities.
Breast implants are medical devices that can increase breast size or reconstruct lost breast tissue after mastectomy. They are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. A breast augmentation procedure can vary depending on your specific needs, but the end result remains the same, that having a fuller and more rounded breast shape, improves self-confidence.
Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular aesthetic procedures throughout the world. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation was the top surgical procedure of 2018 with 329,914 procedures.
At Ordon & Chopra, patient health and safety is always our top priority. As you may be aware, a recall was recently issued for specific implants and we would like to give you some facts and, hopefully, provide some peace of mind regarding this subject.
This recall is applicable only to a limited number of textured implant products: 95% of all implants sold in the U.S. are smooth and completely unaffected. The most common applications for textured implants include an above-average physically active lifestyle, a sloping rib bone structure, and/or reconstructive breast procedures.
Rare among this small subset of textured implant recipients is the instance of associated ailment. The main infirmity reported in connection with these implants is BIA-ALCL, the remission rate for which is close to 90%. We want to convey the facts and hopefully assuage any panic. If you have any symptoms or concerns at all, please do not hesitate to contact our office and we will be happy to assist you.
Fat grafting is a liposuction procedure that transfers fat from one part of your body and injects it into another for enhancement and natural results. For this type of breast augmentation, fat can be taken from an area such as your waist, buttocks or thighs. The procedure uses your own tissues to reconnect to your blood supply at the recipient site and work the same way it did in the donor site.
Fat grafting breast augmentation has been successful in our office giving our patients more natural-looking breasts than with an implant. It is an option many consider and get when having breast implants removed. There is a limitation to increased cup size but it doesn’t take much volume to add fullness in areas you desire like the inner part or upper portion of your breasts to enhance cleavage. This procedure also provides better breast asymmetry and can correct “lopsided” appearance.
There can be misconceptions with regards to necrosis when it comes to a fat grafting breast augmentation procedure. Fat necrosis is a seldom occurring side effect of a fat transfer. This happens when fat cells are not accepted at the receiving site causing them to die and release fatty acids. A properly executed fat grafting procedure should avoid any such complications. However, in the rare instance that this occurs, one’s body is commonly able to care for the issue on its own and any resulting symptoms either disappear or a simple follow up procedure can be performed to care for any remaining concerns.
Our experience at Ordon Chopra has been very positive in performing fat grafting as a breast augmentation procedure. What you can expect is results that can last for many years with a softer, fuller appearance, and enhanced skin texture to give you a rejuvenated look.
There is little to no scarring because there are no incisions made to your breast. The fat transfer also provides a slimmer appearance because fat is taken out from one area such as the dreaded love handles. We’ve had great success performing fat grafting as a breast augmentation procedure for many of our patients.
Any woman in good physical health who has a realistic expectation for a breast augmentation procedure is a good candidate. The FDA has an age requirement of at least 18 years of age for saline breast implants and 22 for silicone breast implants.
Women generally prefer implants that create a natural look and feel. What type of breast implant, silicone or saline, is better? It is an important decision when deciding which type is suitable for your body. It ultimately depends on your personal preference.
Both breast implant types are durable and have an outer shell made out of silicone. However, they differ in consistency, appearance and touch. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water solution that is similar to bodily fluids. The solution is deemed safe upon rupture or leak and blends safely in with the body. They are inserted in the chest empty and filled after they are put in place.
Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel, which is classified as a safe product by the FDA. Women have turned to this style of implant because silicone makes the breasts look and feel more natural than saline and they are safe to insert and remove. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, statistics show that 72 percent of all breast implants are now silicone since its return in 2006.
Dr. Ordon and Dr. Villanueva have performed many breast augmentations in Beverly Hills. The procedure is considered safe. Some of the risks can include asymmetry, bleeding, breast pain, capsular contracture, infection, implant displacement, and potential deflation or rupture of the implant.
Yes, but the scarring fades with time, several months, and will become less noticeable. Every individual heals differently. The incisions may be placed along the breast crease, around the areola or within the armpit and will be made as inconspicuous as possible. Expect your scars to be firm and pink for a minimum of six weeks.
You can expect some discomfort in the first day or two after your surgery. Medication can be prescribed for pain relief. To support your breast while they heal during your recovery, they may be wrapped in dressings. You can also wear a support bra to help minimize bruising and swelling, which can last for up to five weeks. The dressing or stitches are usually removed after a week or so.
As for your activities, light ones can be resumed within 48 hours but more strenuous exercises should wait at least three weeks and up to six weeks depending on the activity. Expect your breasts to be sensitive to any direct stimulation for up to three weeks. When you can return to work depends on the type of work that you do. You will be provided with information on surgical wound care and how best to recover from your surgery.
