Breast Augmentation Beverly Hills(Augmentation Mammoplasty)
Every year, thousands of women have their breasts enhanced through breast augmentation surgery. In fact, in 2012 it was the most popular cosmetic surgery performed in the United States. Although many women undergo this procedure, no two of these women are alike. At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc., Dr. Chiu is dedicated to helping each woman find the procedure that is right for her, creating a one-of-a-kind look that enhances her natural beauty. He will consider a number of factors, including your body and your goals, to come up with a plan that is right for you.
There are a number of options to consider when planning your breast augmentation, but the basic procedure remains the same. Dr. Chiu begins by making an incision in a predetermined location. Through this incision, he is able to insert and adjust the implant. The tissue is then sutured and the skin is closed with skin adhesive and surgical tape.
As simple as this procedure sounds, there are a number of options to be considered based on your individual needs. There are four incision options:
- Periareolar – Around the nipple area
- Inframammary – Beneath the breast, at the fold
- Transaxillary – In a skin crease within the armpit
- Transumbilical (TUBA) – Through an incision in the navel
There are two types of implants commonly used for these procedures, each with their own benefits:
- Silicone Gel Implants – These are designed to look and feel natural, with minimal chance of wrinkling or rippling.
- Saline Implants – The main advantage of these implants is that they are filled during the procedure, allowing for total customization.
Finally, there is the matter of placement. The implants can be placed:
- Submuscular – The implants are placed beneath the pectoral muscle, providing many benefits. They are less visible, less prone to scar tissue formation, and make mammograms easier.
- Subglandular – In this procedure, the implant is placed above the muscle, below the breast tissue. This procedure is easier and has a shorter recovery time than submuscular placement.
Dr. Gabriel Chiu changed my life for the better. After receiving my breast augmentation a few months back, I feel so much more confident in my body. My clothes hang on my body better and clothes just look better on me. Dr. Chiu helped make me feel comfortable and at ease with the surgery because I was so nervous to go through the procedure. And now after the change, I am so happy. His staff is extremely helpful and friendly. They are always willing and able to answer any questions I have either by phone or email. They’re great! Thanks Dr. Chiu and staff!

I was still uncertain about the size implant I would be getting but Dr. Chiu kindly offered me a second consultation and that made all the difference! I left my 2nd consultation feeling very confident with the size Dr. Chiu had recommended! I appreciated Dr. Chiu’s pre-op and post op instructions for recovery from surgery. I was able to go back to work in 2 weeks! The amazing part was that no one notices I had any work done! Especially my nose, it looked so natural and complimented my face very well.

Before and After
Over time, swelling and incision lines will fade. It typically takes three to six months for your breasts to “settle,” at which point they achieve their final look. Breast augmentation is a long-lasting procedure, but the results are not permanent. The implants may need to be replaced during your lifetime, and other procedures might be needed in the future to maintain the look achieved by your breast augmentation. Most women are highly satisfied with their results, with the majority reporting a boost in self-confidence and a better body image. Schedule a consultation with Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc. today to help you figure out what breast augmentation can do for you.The results of your procedure will be immediately apparent after surgery. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within a week. Strenuous activities should be avoided for two to four weeks. At Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Inc., Dr. Chiu will schedule regular visits with you during your recovery to ensure optimum results from your surgery. You may experience some discomfort during the first few weeks; Dr. Chiu will prescribe pain medication to ease this period. In addition, compression garments or a surgical bra will be recommended to support the new position of your breasts, as well as reducing swelling and soreness.

I feel more proportional and confident. I have had endless compliments from close friends that knew I was having the procedure. They tell me my breasts look very natural and my scar is very faint. I have already referred many of my friends to Dr. Chiu and will continue to do so.
