The size, shape, and overall appearance of a woman’s breasts can dramatically affect her confidence and self-esteem.
Ladies who are unhappy with their breasts may struggle to feel feminine and attractive. They may also avoid wearing certain clothes and even struggle to enjoy intimacy with their partner.
Thankfully, breast augmentation surgery means that women can get the breasts, of which they have always dreamed. A successful breast augmentation can increase the size of the breasts, giving them a fuller and more shapely appearance.
Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy, a highly experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon, is delighted to be able to offer his skill and expertise in providing breast augmentation surgery to women in the Beverly Hills area.
As one of the most knowledgeable breast augmentation providers, Dr. Lesavoy wrote the chapter "Breast Augmentation" in Plastic Surgery, an 8-volume textbook edited by Mathes that is considered the gold standard in plastic surgery textbooks.
What does breast augmentation surgery involve?
Breast augmentation uses smooth shell silicone prosthetic implants to increase the fullness of the breast. This makes them appear larger, improves their shape, and improves their symmetry.
Types of implants
There are two types of implants used in breast augmentation surgery, saline and silicone implants. Typically, both are inserted behind the breasts through small incisions, under the breast fold or around the areola. However, Dr. Lesavoy prefers using a small incision in the crease of the armpit, so there is no visible scar.
Saline implants are inserted empty and then filled with saline.
Silicone implants are pre-filled and available in a variety of sizes. Silicone implants are considered to feel the most like natural breast tissue and preferred by Dr. Lesavoy.
How much scarring can I expect to have after my breast augmentation procedure?
As a cosmetic procedure, Dr. Lesavoy wants you to feel as confident as possible after your surgery.
The smallest incision possible will be used to insert your implant, and it will be made in the natural crease of your armpit or under your breast, making it as discreet as possible.
Although scars can appear red for some time after the surgery, over time they do fade and become far less noticeable.
Recovery from breast augmentation surgery
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that will be carried out under general anesthesia. Dr. Lesavoy will ensure that you receive the best possible care and attention in the days immediately after your surgery.
You should expect to take some time off from work (4-5 days) while you heal. Your stitches will be removed around 10-14 days’ post-surgery, so you will need to wear a sports or surgical bra for a minimum of four weeks after your operation.
Dr. Lesavoy will give you specific aftercare instructions based upon your personal circumstances, and these should be followed precisely, in order for you to make a fast and complication-free recovery from your breast augmentation surgery.
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery?
If you have been unhappy about the shape, size or overall appearance of your breasts for some time, then breast augmentation surgery may be the perfect solution for you.
During your informative consultation, Dr. Lesavoy will find out more about your medical history to ensure that you are fit and healthy enough for the procedure, as well as finding out more about your reasons for the surgery. Once he determines that a breast augmentation is right for you, he will arrange your surgery.
