BREAST AUGMENTATION IN BEVERLY HILLS CALIFORNIA

Breast augmentation is among the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Hoefflin.

While many women seek breast augmentationsurgery to simply increase their breast size, others seek it to correct asymmetrical breasts, to improve the size and shape after an unsuccessful breast surgery, or to restore them to their original shape and appearance following breast cancer surgery or pregnancy. Dr. Hoefflin has extensive experience in each of these areas and has helped to restore the self-image of many women through this procedure.

Dr. Hoefflin strives to create a breast augmentation natural look that is both proportional to each patient’s body and symmetrical. During your consultation with Dr. Hoefflin, he will listen to your aesthetic goals and assist you in choosing between saline and silicone gel implants. He will review before and after breast augmentation photos with you of patients with similar goals and help you chose the breast size and shape that is right for you.

Dr. Hoefflin frequently performs other cosmetic breast procedures such as scarless breast reduction, traditional reduction, and breast lifts.

 

ABOUT THE PROCEDURE

Dr. Hoefflin performs breast augmentation procedures in his state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center which conforms to the highest credentials. The procedure is either performed under local anesthesia with deep sedation or under general anesthesia, administered by one of our board-certified anesthesiologists.

 

INCISION

The breast implants are placed in the body thought one of four common incision locations: around or along the bottom of the aerola (periareolar), along the natural fold where the breast meets the chest wall (inframammary), through the top area of the breast near the armpit (transaxillary), or through an incision made in the belly button transumbilical.

 

IMPLANT LOCATION

Dr. Hoefflin performs breast augmentation surgery using the specialized “dual-plane” technique. Using this technique, he places part of the breast implant below the pectoral muscle and part of the implant above it. This gives a slight lift, provides long-lasting results, and offers a natural, youthful appearance.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER SURGERY

Dr. Hoefflin’s patients typically experience very little pain due to the anesthetics used during the procedure and the oral pain medications prescribed for post-operative comfort. Moderate swelling and bruising in the days after breast augmentation surgery is common. Most patients are able to return to their normal routine within a week after surgery. However, we encourage patients to wait two weeks post-surgery before resuming light exercise, and patients should wait several weeks longer to resume vigorous activity.

RISKS

When performed by a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon, the risk of serious problems are rare. During your consultation, Dr. Hoefflin will discuss specific risks with you as well as whether or not you are a suitable candidate for breast implant surgery. As always, you can reduce your risk of complications by closely following Dr. Hoefflin’s pre- and post-operative instructions.

 

SAFETY OF BREAST IMPLANTS

Many people are concerned about the safety of both silicone and saline breast implants. Dr. Hoefflin uses only FDA-approved breast implants, and numerous studies have shown both silicone and saline implants to be safe. We want you to be as informed about your procedure as possible. If you have questions about the safety of implants, Dr. Hoefflin would be happy to discuss concerns with you during your consultation.
