When our patients in Beverly Hills choose breast augmentation, they are choosing one of the world’s most popular surgical procedures.
Breast augmentation is the most popular procedure in the U.S. according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, with nearly 330 thousand procedures performed in 2020. For many women, it is a chance to achieve the curves they have always wanted.
For others, it is about reclaiming their bodies after pregnancy, cancer or other trauma. To the surgeons at The Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills, breast augmentation is about fulfilling those desires and giving you full, natural looking curves to complement your beauty.
At the Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills, breast augmentation is used as a procedure to alter the breast shape, increase size, and transform the overall appearance of the body to achieve a more balanced form. This is done through breast augmentation with breast implants or breast augmentation with fat grafting.
Our board certified doctors perform breast augmentation with breast implants to increase breast size, balance the breasts, or reconstruct lost breast tissue after trauma or surgery. Implants come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to fit the desires and body shapes of our patients. During your consultation, your surgeon will go through the pros and cons of each style to help you make the best decision for your body.
Beverly Hills Breast Augmentation Results
The vast majority of breast augmentation patients are happy they went through augmentation and would recommend the procedure to others. A breast lift can often be performed along with your breast augmentation to further improve your results.
Fat grafting involves a liposuction procedure that transfers fat from one part of your body and injects it into another for natural results. For this type of breast augmentation, your surgeon will take unwanted fat from one area (such as the waist, buttocks, or thighs) and place that volume into the breasts. This results in breasts that feel and look very natural, as they use the fat from your own body to increase volume.
Many consider this option after having breast implants removed. While limitations exist as to how large a cup size a patient may obtain through fat grafting, a little volume goes a long way. Adding fullness in areas such as the upper inner and bottom inner quadrants of the breasts can enhance cleavage. Moreover, adding to different quadrants can even breast asymmetry, correcting a “lopsided” appearance and granting a full, even, and shapely form.
If you are having breast augmentation with implants, you can expect some discomfort in the first day or two after your surgery. Ensure that you will have some help in the following days, as the surgery will initially limit your arms’ functionality and some other movements as you recover. To minimize bruising and swelling, surgeons generally advise patients to wear a support bra for up to five weeks post-op.
Generally, you can resume light exercise, such as walking, within 48 hours. More strenuous exercises, such as weightlifting, should wait at least three weeks to six weeks depending on the activity. Expect breast sensitivity to any direct stimulation for up to three weeks after as well. Your doctor can help you decide a timeline to protect you and better ensure a proper recovery. Breast augmentation with fat transfer offers reduced recovery times, as it is typically a minimally invasive procedure performed with injections, rather than incisions into the breast tissue. Your doctors will instruct you on specific suggestions to maximize your results during your consultation.

Candidates must meet the following criteria:
Breast augmentation is considered safe by the FDA. With any surgery, there are risks. Some of the risks of breast augmentation with implants can include the following: asymmetry, bleeding, breast pain, capsular contracture, infection, implant displacement, and potential deflation or rupture of the implant.
Who you choose to perform your surgery matters. At the Plastic Surgery Institute, our doctors are recognized global experts in the field of breast augmentation. They understand the risks and take every possible step to minimize them. You can feel confident that your surgery will be done in a sterile environment by doctors who put your safety first.
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 a sterile salt water solution that is similar to bodily fluids. The solution is deemed safe upon rupture or leak and blends in safely 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. Many have turned to this style of implant because they feel that silicone makes their breasts look and feel more natural than saline implants do. They are also safe to insert and remove. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, statistics 72 percent of all breast implants are now silicone since its return in 2006.
Every individual heals differently. The incisions may be placed along the breast crease, around the areola or within the underarm and will be made as inconspicuous as possible. Expect your scars to be firm and pink for a minimum of six weeks post-operation.
Scarring fades with time and will become less noticeable after a few months. Your surgeon will work with you to make sure your scars are minimized and provide you with advice on post-op care to reduce their visibility even further.
