General information about Los Angeles breast enhancement.
Los Angeles Breast enhancement (or breast augmentation) is a frequently performed in procedure. Los Angeles Breast enhancement is performed to increase the size of breasts, restore breast volume which may have diminished following pregnancy, or improve breast asymmetry. In some patients who developed breast sagging (ptosis), a breast lift may be required.
During your consultation with us, you will be able to estimate what volume you desire using standard volume breast implants. The final volume will be determined based on your desired volume and your chest/body anatomy. Our goal is to create enhanced and naturally appearing breasts.
What kind of breast implants do you use for breast enhancement in Los Angeles?
We use round smooth saline-filled and silicone implants in Los Angeles. Saline is salt water, which is what most of human body is made of. Therefore, saline is harmless. Silicone breast implants have been recently approved by FDA for breast augmentation as well. Breast implants used for breast enhancement have different widths and amount of projection. We will discuss the different types of Los Angeles breast enlargement implants with you and choose the type that will produce the desired cosmetic result.
How is Los Angeles breast enhancement performed?
For Los Angeles Breast enhancement we place a small incision under the breast, around the areolar (pigmented circle around the nipple), or in the armpit. The choice of the incision will be discussed with you and will depend on your preference and your anatomy. A pocked is created under the muscle where an implant is then placed. In most patients we use general anesthesia for breast enhancement. However, local analgesia and sedation can be used in some patients.
What is recovery like following Los Angeles breast enhancement?
Your initial discomfort will be controlled using pain medications. You will wear a support bra for several weeks.
