Los Angeles Breast Augmentation

 

General information about breast augmentation Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Breast enlargement (breast augmentation) is one of the most frequently performed procedure by Dr. Grigoryants, a board certified plastic surgeon. Our patients presenting for breast augmentation request to increase the size of the breasts, restore the breast volume lost following pregnancy or weight loss, or improve breast asymmetry. In some patients who developed breast sagging (ptosis), a breast lift may be required. Some of the typical results following breast augmentation are shown below.

How is the size of breast implants determined?

During your consultation with Dr. Grigoryants, you will be able to estimate what volume of breast implants you like. We have silicone and saline implants of different size that you will try on. We will provide you with a special bra in which implants of different sizes will be placed. This will allow you to see the actual implants on you. Please bring with you a somewhat tightly fitting top to better see the outline of the implants on you. The final volume will be determined based on your desired size and your chest/body anatomy. Breast implants have different widths and amount of projection. We will discuss the different types of breast implants with you and choose the type that will produce the desired cosmetic result. Our goal is to create enhanced and naturally appearing breasts.

What kind of breast implants do you use?

Dr. Grigoryants uses silicone and saline implants for breast augmentation. Both types of implants are FDA approved and considered to be safe. Saline implants are filled with salt water and silicone implants contain silicone gel. The new generation silicone breast implants provide superior softness to the breast. Recent evidence shows that the new generation silicone implants (known as cohesive gel or memory gel implants) are less likely to leak than the saline breast implants.

How is breast augmentation performed?

Dr. Grigoryants emphasizes minimal scarring and therefore uses the shortest possible incisions for brest augmentation. Breast augmentation is performed through a small incision placed under the breast, around the areolar (pigmented circle around the nipple), or through 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.  

Where will my surgery be performed?

To assure the highest safety for his patients, Dr. Grigoryants performs surgery primarily at the hospital as well as at several accredited surgical centers. These state-of-the-art facilities provide not only the safest possible environment but also caring and friendly staff. Your anesthesia will be performed by experienced and board certified anesthesiologists (doctors). In most patients we use general anesthesia for breast augmentation. However, local analgesia and sedation can be used in some patients.

What is recovery like following breast augmentation?

Many patients do not require any pain medications following breast augmentation. However, pain medications will be provided to you for any possible discomfort. You will wear a support bra for several weeks. Dr. Grigoryants uses absorbable sutures that do not need to be removed. Most swelling will resolve within several weeks. You will be able to start performing more vigorous exercises with your arms in about 4 weeks after surgery. Within 1-2 months the breasts will soften and improve in appearance.

Can I get mammograms after breast augmentation?

Just like women with no breast implants, women who underwent breast augmentation should obtain mammograms following general screening guidelines. Because in most cases the implants are placed behind the muscle, visualization of breast tissue is maximized on mammograms.
