Candidates

Dr. Neavin recommends a breast augmentation for women who lack additional fullness and size in their chest. However, many women who already have reasonable breast volume desire to increase their breast cup size or “perkiness”. Whether due to natural aging, genetics, pregnancy or weight loss, sagging of the breasts can occur and lack symmetry or appear disproportionate to the rest of body and thus a breast augmentation can solve this issue.

With a physical examination and measurements of your current bust, he can suggest a cup size that will look natural while enhancing your appearance.

Types of Breast Implants

Saline Breast Implants

A saline implant is filled with a sterile saltwater solution that adds fullness. While not popular for the majority of breast enlargement procedures, they are still an option depending on the patient’s desires. In most cases, they do not offer as natural of a look as other breast implants that are available. Dr. Neavin will explain all options during your consultation; however, he recommends Silicone (or Gummy Bear) implants if you desire a more natural aesthetic.

Silicone and Gummy Bear Implants

Silicone implants are composed of a thick gel that takes the form of the natural breast; gummy bear implants™ are an offshoot of silicone, which have even greater cohesive qualities.

In some other areas of the world, such as Dubai and many places in Europe, the most common implants used for breast augmentation are textured. But whatever you choose, your anatomy and aesthetic desires must be considered and integrated into the plan properly.

Smooth implants will drop more readily and are less likely to ripple. Textured implants integrate better with the natural tissue and have a lower chance of developing capsular contracture – but tend to ripple more. Breast enlargement procedures requires precise measurements to achieve a desired result

FAQ

How to choose your breast implant type?

If you’re ready to go with your breast augmentation then you’ve probably done some research and you may have chosen your ideal cup size, but what you may not readily consider is which implant will create the perfect look for your form. The material you choose for your procedure will often dictate the shape, texture and consistency of your look, which will further enhance your body.

The shape will influence projection and cleavage for your breast enlargement procedure. That is, size is only one important consideration when it comes to customizing your end look. Saline, silicone, and gummy bear breast implants are all capable of adding volume, but they each have their own unique advantages and disadvantages that are important to examine before you make your final decision.

How much does a breast augmentation cost in Beverly Hills?

The range is generally $9,500 dollars to $10,000 for standard saline or silicone breast implants. This range should include the surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist, breast implants, and all operating room expenses. If a price is advertised for below $5,000 you will want to know why. Is the surgeon a plastic surgeon or a cosmetic surgeon? The difference between the two specialties is something you will want to understand. Any revision breast surgery adds time, liability, and cost to the procedure.

Does insurance cover breast augmentation surgery?

In almost all cases, your insurance will not cover any cosmetic procedures unless the cosmetic procedure is due to a health condition. For example, there are cases where women with breast cancer may have reconstructive surgery covered by their insurance.

How long do breast implants last?

Breast implants are designed to last a lifetime, however, the chances of a breast implant rupturing is larger the older they are.

What is the downtime like after surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, which means you will go home the same day. General anesthesia is usually the anesthetic of choice, so you will need someone to stay with you overnight after your procedure. The next day, you are generally seen in the office to make sure there are no bleeding problems or acute infections. Everyone has a different pain threshold, but it is the rare occasion where oral narcotics can’t control pain. Some women feel very little pain at all, while others say they feel sore. Soreness generally lasts less than three days. While strenuous activity should be avoided for the first week, you could and should be walking right from recovery

What is the future of breast augmentation?

Right now, we have a safe and natural-looking way to enlarge breasts. The challenges with prosthetic breast enlargement is capsular contracture, rippling, bottoming out, and incisions (scars). The silicone implants we have now feel like natural breast tissue, but often require a 5 cm incision. In most people, that scar isn’t very noticeable. With the advent of the Keller funnel (a device that facilitates pushing an implant through a small incision), we might be able to save a centimeter of scar. Perhaps there will be implants someday that are filled with silicone after placement, just like their saline cousins. This would spare several centimeters of a scar. Fat grafting to the breast may also become more predictable and practical.

Regarding capsular contracture, we understand the causes now more than ever. Operative techniques will continue to adapt to the growing literature on the etiology of this condition. The overall rates should drop, but they will never be zero. Advances in medication may reduce the incidence even further, or even reverse the process.

There is no need to wait for a safe and natural surgery to enlarge your breasts. It’s here. Breast augmentation surgery is an effective way to enlarge and enhance the breasts today. For more information, contact Dr. Neavin at 310‑858‑8811.
