What is breast augmentation?

The goal of our Beverly Hills breast augmentation is to increase breast volume, improve breast shape or to correct breast asymmetry. Although it’s one of the most common cosmetic procedures, it can be anxiety-provoking due to the sheer number of choices available such as implant size, shape, and position.

What is a combination breast augmentation and breast lift procedure?

A combination of aesthetic concerns requires a combination surgical plan. Breast augmentation with lift can beautifully restore full, firm, and elevated breasts that complement the figure and provide you with a broader range of wardrobe choices. Sagging, sunken breasts can be caused by not only aging, but also by pregnancy and nursing, weight fluctuations, and heredity.

During the procedure, the doctor will assist you in selecting the right implants for your body. Implants today come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so the procedure can be personalized to meet your needs. If asymmetry is an issue, saline implants can be filled to two different capacities, combatting the imbalance.

Dr. Lee will then perform a breast lift, using one of the following techniques:

  • Circumareolar lift: Here, the doctor will create a circular incision within the darker pigments of the areolar complex. This approach will best serve those with minor breast ptosis (sagging).
  • Lollipop lift: During a lollipop lift, an incision is made encircling the areola and then running down to the breast crease vertically, resembling a child’s favorite sweet. This approach is among the most common techniques for combatting moderate breast ptosis.
  • Anchor lift: If the client suffers from low-hanging nipples and pendulous breasts, an anchor lift will provide the surgeon with the most flexibility and access to address the problem. An incision is made encircling the nipple, running vertically down to the breast crease, and then running horizontally across the inframammary fold, resembling an upside-down T or anchor.

What is the recovery like?

Most patients are sore for the first week. Dr. Lee and her team and PERK will closely monitor you after surgery and optimize your recovery with tailored bras, lymphatic massage, lasers for bruising, guided meditations, nutritional support and postsurgical exercise.
