Breast augmentation uses
cohesive gel silicone breast implants or saline breast implants (salt water)
to augment or enlarge a woman's breasts.
For my Los Angeles and
Beverly Hills breast implants and breast enlargement patients, I perform the surgery at my accredited
Hills Plastic Surgery Center. I
prefer placement of the breast implants through incisions hidden either in the upper portion of
the underarm (transaxillary) or around the outer nipple area to minimize the incision's
visibility. The use of silicone breast implants for breast
enlargement has been re-approved by the FDA
since January 2007 and we now offer the first FDA approved cohesive
gel silicone implants available. Cohesive gel implants do not
spread their silicone even if cut in half yet maintain a very
natural and soft feeling free of the "gummy-bear" feel of other
implants. (To see a cohesive gel implant intentionally cut in half

breast implants patients return to work after 5-7 days. You can expect to be tender during the first week, mildly tender during the second week returning usually toward normal sensation and feeling over the next 2-3 months time.
Most breast implants patients return to limited light exercise after 3-4 weeks, and regular exercise after 6-8 weeks. The breast implant surgery is performed under a light general anesthesia in our accredited outpatient
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Center.
