Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) can be ideal for patients who desire larger, enhanced breast contours. In addition to increasing the size of the breasts, this operation can also resolve concerns regarding asymmetry, shape, and projection. Under the care of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Jacobson, patients can enjoy exceptional, natural-looking results with breast augmentation in Beverly Hills.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation surgery can involve the placement of breast implants, a fat transfer procedure, or both. This cosmetic surgery is intended to enlarge the breasts and create breast contours that align with the patient’s aesthetic ideals.

Breast implants, which can consist of saline or silicone, are typically the best option for patients seeking more dramatic size increases. Breast implants are available in different shapes and profiles, as well as sizes, and Dr. Jacobson will work closely with you to select the best option for your needs and cosmetic goals.

Breast augmentation with implants is performed using one of the following incision techniques:

  • Inflammatory – This incision is made along the crease under the breast.
  • Periareolar – Periareolar incisions are made around the areola.
The selected breast implant will then be inserted via the incision and placed either under the pectoral muscle or between the pectoral muscle and breast tissue, centered behind the nipple.
Natural breast augmentation, or breast augmentation with fat transfer, can also be used to add volume to the breasts. This approach can be used as a stand-alone treatment or combined with breast implants.
Fat transfer involves using liposuction to harvest unwanted fat cells from the patient’s midsection, buttocks, or another problem area. The fat is purified and can then be injected into the breasts for improvements in size and shape.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Women who are physically healthy, have fully developed breasts, and desire larger breasts can be good candidates for breast augmentation. Breast augmentation cannot be done while you are pregnant, and becoming pregnant after this procedure can compromise your results. If you plan on becoming pregnant or breastfeeding, Dr. Jacobson can advise you regarding the optimal timing for your operation.

How to Prepare for Breast Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Jacobson will give you detailed and personalized preparation instructions. You must adhere to these directions to ensure your safety and optimal results.

All breast augmentation patients must stop smoking and/or vaping for four to six weeks before and after the operation. Additionally, patients who take certain medications may need to modify the dosage over the days leading up to their breast augmentation procedure.

What to Expect During Breast Augmentation Surgery

For your comfort, breast augmentation surgery is performed with general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Jacobson can begin your implant placement surgery or fat transfer procedure, as previously discussed with you during your consultation.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

Breast augmentation cost varies based on the types of implants, whether fat transfer is utilized, and other factors affecting specific sizing and contouring. An individualized price can be calculated during the patient’s initial consultation.

What to Expect After Breast Augmentation Surgery

After breast augmentation surgery, you may be advised to wear a surgical bra, which will provide support and help to reduce swelling. A friend or family member will need to drive you home after your procedure. You will also need someone to stay with you for the first 24-48 hours of your recovery to assist you around the house.

After a week or two of downtime, many patients can return to work, though it will still be a month or more before healing is complete. Vigorous activity and heavy lifting should not be resumed for several weeks, as advised by Dr. Jacobson.
