What is breast augmentation?

The goal of our breast augmentation in Beverly Hills 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.

PERK is uncompromising in fully educating each patient about implant safety and maintenance. Using precise body measurements and breast analysis, Dr. Lee will meticulously tailor her technique to your body and help you select the best fitting implant and procedure.

What is the science behind implant choice?

The best implant for you is the one that compliments your body.

Every woman should have the freedom to change their breast size and shape. However, implant choice should be guided by your body measurements and tissue mechanics. Most long-term complications with breast implants such as rippling and poor shape are due to wrong implant choice at the first operation. Dr. Lee’s experience with breast revision surgery and fixing long-term implant complications instilled in her the belief that meticulous implant choice guided by your body measurements is critical to long-term breast augmentation success.

Is breast surgery safe?

A beautiful breast is a healthy breast. Due to Dr. Lee’s extensive background in breast reconstruction after breast cancer, she is committed breast health and safety. Although breast implants are one of the most common medical devices, it’s important to remember that implants are still man-made devices and require maintenance and monitoring.

How does Dr. Lee ensure a natural breast augmentation result?

Dr. Lee believes that obtaining a natural result from breast augmentation in Beverly Hills begins long before surgery. During the consultation process, the doctor will delve into your unique aesthetic sensibilities to discover exactly what type of results you will be most happy with. Many times, women choose implants that are too large for their bodies and end up being dissatisfied with their outcome because it looks too fake. Dr. Lee can allow you to “try on” your implants prior to surgery to ensure a look that is balanced and organic. Choosing more moderately sized implants can not only improve your figure, but can also help avoid neck, back and shoulder pain associated with oversized implants.

Dr. Lee has mastered the art of natural breast augmentation and applies a meticulous attention to detail. She will ensure the breasts sit at the right level on the chest, neither too high nor too low; that the breasts are the correct distance apart; that the breasts gently slope towards the nipples; and that the nipples are well-placed in an attractive location. Dr. Lee will choose the right implant placement – either subglandular or submuscular – to suit your wishes and achieve your primary cosmetic goals. Finally, Dr. Lee will ensure that the implants you select feel like natural, authentic breast tissue.

What is breast implant illness?

Breast implant illness is a term used by women to describe a group of symptoms ranging from fatigue, brain fog, rashes and more. These symptoms are attributed to the body’s reaction to the implant. Today, this is a hotly contested and controversial topic because the vast majority of large-scale scientific studies show that breast implants are safe. However, two recent studies show a possible connection between silicone breast implants and autoimmune diseases. Currently, the consensus from the FDA and the scientific community is that breast implants are safe devices.

However, at PERK we understand that breast implants are not tolerated by everyone, and we take problems with breast implants very seriously. Safety will always come first. Dr. Lee is committed to participate in the breast implant safety research in order to provide you with the most scientifically-sound and up-to-date evidence. PERK Plastic Surgery will be here every step of the way to help you navigate through problems with breast implants if they were to arise.
