Beverly Hills and
Los Angeles Breast Enlargement (breast augmentation) with saline or silicone breast implants
Beverly Hills specialist Dr. Perlman has been
performing breast enlargements and
breast augmentation surgery for
patients from Beverly Hills,
Los Angeles, Newport Beach and San Diego since 1980. He seeks the most natural looking results
for his patients and emphasizes the need to avoid extreme changes in size
for patients who wish to maintain a natural and well balanced appearance through the placement of saline or silicone
Many patients seek augmentation of their breasts with implants to achieve a size that they
have not acquired naturally, but others wish to receive breast implants to restore a former size that
was lost after pregnancy, weight loss or simply as a result of growing
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under a light general anesthesia in our
Beverly Hills Los Angeles certified and licensed operating facility. Dr Perlman prefers
placement of your breast implants so that they are covered in approximately their
upper half by the pectoral muscle (partial subpectoral augmentation), although
placement above the muscle (suprapectoral) is an option if you have thick
natural breast tissue or have old breast implants that are being changed and had a
satisfactory result from your previous augmentation surgery and your implants were positioned above the
muscle. Dr. Perlman prefers making the incision for placement of
silicone implants within the perimeter of the lower nipple, and for
saline implants prefers augmentation using a one inch incision well-hidden
in the peak of the underarm (transaxillary).
Dr. Perlman also offers
his patients the option of using a pain pump to make the
postoperative recovery easier. A fine threadlike catheter
automatically drips small amounts of numbing solution into each surgical
area for the first 24 to 48 hours. We find that this technique
alleviates about seventy percent of the discomfort after the surgical
procedure and lessens the need for pain medications!
At the bottom of this page
you will find examples of healed surgical incisions in several of Dr.
Perlman's patients' underarms. Please
note how these one inch incisions normally end up resembling fine wrinkle
lines after healing is completed. There are additional examples of
breast augmentation patients on the next page as well as examples of patients who
underwent enlargement with
implants following pregnancy that you can link to from the bottom of this
page. Remember that each person's results will differ depending upon the thickness of
tissue, skin elasticity and other factors. These
procedures were all performed in our Beverly Hills outpatient surgical facility under a
light general anesthesia following which our patients usually went home or
to a local hotel accompanied by a friend or family member.
