Your Beverly Hills Breast Implant Options

Your options include silicone, saline, gummy bear, and natural fat transfer. Each option has pros and cons, but most patients choose silicone implants as they look and feel very natural. You have many options from which to choose size, shape and projection.

Best Beverly Hills Breast Augmentation

Implant Types


These implants are the most popular, as they feel very similar to natural breast tissue in weight, bounce, and softness. You have many options in size, projection or the shape of implant.


These implants are filled with saline solution after placement in a surgically-created pocket, requiring a smaller incision, but are known to be heavier and to feel slightly less natural than silicone.

Gummy Bear

Gummy bear, or “form-stable” breast implants are a teardrop-shaped that retains shape, developed to more accurately match the anatomy of a natural breast.

Things to consider

Breast Implant Size

Choosing the most attractive breast implant size is different than choosing a bra cup size. The size must suit your frame, circumference of natural breast tissue, and position on chest wall. Measured in cc’s, or cubic centimeters, breast implant sizes range from 100 to 800 ccs.

Breast Implant Incision

The incision length and location is selected based upon the size and type of breast implants you have selected. If you seek a more dramatic increase, larger breast implants are needed, and a longer incision will be required. Saline breast implants require smaller incisions as they are filled after placement.

Breast Implant Incision Location

There are three standard incisions used in breast augmentation in Beverly Hills: Inframammary, in the crease below the breast, transaxillary, in the armpit crease (for saline breast implants), and periareolar, in which incisions are placed around the areola.

Breast Implant Shape

Most breast implants are round, other than the more recently-developed “gummy bear” breast implants which are anatomically shaped. The shape that will look best on your body will be determined through measurements of your natural breast tissue. The diameter of the breast implant must fit perfectly with your anatomy.

Breast Implant Location

Breast implants are inserted in a surgically-created “pocket.” This may be placed submuscularly (beneath chest muscles) or subglandulary (beneath the glandular tissue), or a combination technique. A transumbilical breast augmentation (placed through the belly button) leaves no scars, but only saline breast implants are appropriate for this approach.

M.K. Breast Augmentation

Plastic Surgeons are a dime a dozen in this city but Dr. H is truly a rare gem. The way in which he explained the history of each procedure and also exactly what steps he would be taking and why truly gave me a sense of calm and filled me with confidence about my decision to proceed with various procedures.

R.A. Breast Augmentation

I would highly recommend Dr. Hoefflin to anyone looking for their perfect doctor. I could not leave enough positive feedback about my experience and results! For any ladies out there who are considering a breast augmentation my advice would be to go for it!

C.G. Breast Augmentation

Dr. Hoefflin is the best! I had a Brazilian butt lift back in January and recently went back in June for a breast augmentation. I absolutely LOVE my results.

G.M. Breast Augmentation

Four years ago Dr Hoefflin preformed a breast reduction and lift on me. The results far exceeded my expectations. I was incredibly pleased, not only with the results but with the level of service I was provided by Dr Hoefflin and his staff.

Recovery After a Breast Augmentation in Beverly Hills

You will require time to fully heal after our Beverly Hills breast augmentation. Understanding what to expect as the weeks pass is an important point in planning for surgery. Most people are able to return to work in a week to ten days, unless employment involves vigorous physical motions.

Immediately After

When you wake up from surgery, which is performed under general anesthesia, you will be groggy, but not in pain. Your breasts will feel tight and will be held in place with a surgical garment to reduce swelling.

Day of

The day of your surgery you will need another person to drive you home and a friend or family member to help you through the first day and night. Your breasts will be swollen and tender.

One Week

Many patients return to work after one week, as the swelling and bruising is almost gone. Some may require a few more days of recovery.

Two Weeks

Almost all of the residual swelling is gone, bruising faded, and your body is healing rapidly. Some discomfort may remain, easily managed with mild pain relieving medication.

One Month

Your breasts are starting to settle into their final shape, the majority of swelling has disappeared, and your tissues are healing.

Three Months

Your new breasts are looking better, and you will feel comfortable wearing low-cut tops, dresses, or swimsuits with confidence.

Six Months

The incision scars are now starting to become far less visible, typically fading to a thin white line.

One Year

You will now be comfortable with your new breasts, as they have reached peak healing, and should not pose any problems for you.

What are the risks of a Breast Augmentation?

All surgical procedures pose some degree of risk, including breast augmentation. Although complications are rare, they include:

  • Infection
  • Excessive scar tissue formation
  • Bleeding
  • Complications associated with anesthesia

How to Choose the right Breast Surgeon?

Your choice of plastic surgeon is the most critical aspect of a successful breast augmentation. Review the credentials and experience of the surgeon and ensure he or she is board-certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Look over the gallery of images of our Beverly Hills breast augmentation patients to evaluate the quality of work. Meet with the surgeon and discuss your goals to determine whether you feel comfortable with your surgeon. Good communication is vital in achieving the look you envision for your new breasts.


Review the educational background of the plastic surgeon under consideration. Hands-on training at prestigious hospitals such as UCLA, Sloan Kettering, Cornell, and other surgical residencies can be an indicator that you have found a top quality plastic surgeon with an exceptional experiential background.


You are safer in the hands of a highly-experienced plastic surgeon, as he or she will have already performed many successful breast augmentations in Beverly Hills or anywhere else.


As with any profession, plastic surgeons are proud of their work. The best plastic surgeons offer a gallery of images of patients who have undergone breast augmentation. Read online reviews posted by former patients for insight.


The various designations for surgeons can be confusing. There is a difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a board certified plastic surgeon. While any MD can legally be called a “cosmetic surgeon,” you want a plastic surgeon who has dedicated years of advanced education and experience to achieve board certification from the American Board of Medical Specialties.

Why choose Dr. Jeffrey Hoefflin?

Dr. Jeffrey D. Hoefflin is among the most accomplished and respected plastic surgeons practicing in Beverly Hills. With double board-certification, in general surgery and plastic surgery, he offers an exceptional level of skills and artistry in the art of face and body enhancements. He focuses on achieving results that appear completely natural and provides a VIP experience for every patient who visits his luxurious, private, discreet Beverly Hills clinic.

What to Expect During Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

Preparing for Surgery

Prior to breast augmentation, you can help your body heal more quickly by eating a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water, avoiding alcohol, and getting eight hours of sleep.


Our Beverly Hills breast augmentation surgery is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. You will not remember the surgery when you wake up.


Once the anesthesia is administered, the breast augmentation begins. The surgical sites are marked, the breast implants standing by, and the process begins with your surgeon making careful incisions to access the breast structure. The breast implants are placed in a surgically-created pocket, either beneath the natural glandular tissue or beneath a layer of chest muscles. Once the breast implants are placed, the incisions are closed with sutures, and a surgical garment placed to hold them securely during recovery.


You will awaken in a recovery room with nursing staff standing by to assist you. This can be slightly disorienting, but as the anesthesia wears off, you will become more alert. Once you are fully awake, a friend or family member can transport you home to rest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q?: When Can I Wear a Bra?

You will need to be patient, as you will be unable to wear a standard bra for about four to six weeks after surgery.

Q?: Can I Breastfeed After Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation should not affect your ability to breastfeed your baby. Inform your plastic surgeon if you plan to breastfeed in the future so that extra care is taken during your surgery.

Q?: When Can I Have Sex After Breast Augmentation?

Each patient heals at a different rate. In general terms, you should avoid sex (and any other vigorous physical activities) for the first two weeks, sometimes longer, and very gently performed for six to eight weeks.

Q?: Does Breast Augmentation Affect Mammograms?

Breast implants will require a different screening technique, so inform the technician prior to your test.

Q?: Why Are Implants Placed Under the Muscle?

Women who have very limited natural breast tissue will have a better result if the implants are placed beneath the pectoralis muscles. This allows for thorough implant coverage for a more natural look.

Q?: Can I Enlarge My Breasts Without Surgery?

You may see ads for various creams, exercises, bras, or other products that promise to increase breast size. Unfortunately, these rarely, if ever, produce a significant result. Your breasts will enlarge with pregnancy and breastfeeding, but only plastic surgery produces a long-lasting increase in bust size.

Other Breast Augmentation Options

Woman After Breast Augmentation

Other Options

Breast Augmentation with Lift

You may need more than a breast augmentation in Beverly Hills to achieve the youthful, plump breasts you want. If you have chest skin laxity and sagging, a breast lift can be performed in conjunction with the augmentation.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

Fat can be harvested from a body area with an excess, purified, and injected in the top of your breasts. This treatment can increase volume slightly, but not to the degree achieved with implants.

Breast Revision Surgery

If you have older implants, they may need to be replaced. Some women have had a breast augmentation with complications, such as capsular contracture, implant rupture, implants that have moved and are now uneven, or too large or too small. Breast revision surgery addresses all of these issues.

Breast Reduction Surgery

Some women developed overly large breasts, and struggle with various problems, including pain, rashes developing beneath the breasts, deep bra grooves, and the inability to wear standard clothing sizes, and embarrassment. Breast reduction surgery reshapes your breast tissue to be balanced and in proportion with your figure.
