Breast Augmentation Overview

Breast enhancement procedures are among the most popular cosmetic procedures. Even small changes to breast size, shape, or placement can make a significant difference in a patient’s life, from enhancing self-confidence to improving bodily comfort. Breast augmentation focuses on increasing breast size, though it can also change breast shape. Genetics, pregnancy, age, and weight changes can all impact the size of a patient’s breasts, but breast augmentation puts control back in the patient’s hands.

Dr. Chiu proudly performs breast augmentation for patients in Beverly Hills, with years of success. Additionally, he offers several procedures patients tend to combine with augmentation. Particularly, patients having a Mommy Makeover can benefit from combination procedures. Popular options to have at the same time as breast augmentation include:

  • Breast lift
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tuck

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

  • Improve breast symmetry

  • Create a rounder breast shape

  • Enhance your cleavage

  • Improved breast projection for a memorable contour

  • Revitalize lost breast volume (from aging, losing weight, childbirth)

  • Expand your range of clothing options

During your consultation, Dr. Chiu will evaluate your breasts and body type to develop the best treatment plan for you. Utilizing personalized sizing techniques, imaging and assessment technology, you will be able to visualize the outcome of your breast procedure and determine which augmentation approach can meet your expectations. Anatomical factors such as the amount of natural breast tissue you have, the size of your frame, and the width of your chest are considered to achieve your objective.

Types of Breast Implants

Choosing the right type of implant option is key to seeing results that match how you want to look. Each type of breast augmentation has its own advantages, creating a different size and shape that results in a contour you love.

  • Silicone Implants: These gel implants are made from medical-grade silicone. Silicone implants have a more natural look and feel compared to saline implants. Additionally, there is flexibility in where they are placed within the breast, allowing for variation in your final appearance.
  • Saline Implants: There are two main advantages of saline implants. The first is that they can be filled after insertion, allowing for more control over breast size. Second, they require a smaller incision for less noticeable scarring.
  • Gummy Bear Implants: Another type of gel implant. However, the gel in gummy bear implants has greater cohesion, resulting in better maintenance of shape. This is beneficial for patients who want a more “augmented round look”.
  • Fat Transfer: Rather than using implants, fat transfer uses the patient’s own tissues. Fat is removed with liposuction, then processed, and lastly injected into the breasts. Ideal for more natural-looking results that involve no artificial materials.

What to Expect for Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

Each element of your breast augmentation surgery is tailored to bring out your goals. Everything begins with your consultation, during which you and Dr. Chiu can have an in-depth conversation about what you want to achieve. You can learn about implant options, surgical techniques, recovery expectations, and more.

Before the Surgery

Preparing for your procedure is typically straightforward. However, each step is important in promoting a safe and positive experience. One key element is to avoid all tobacco products for at least 6 weeks before surgery. These products can interfere with recovery and impede safety. Additionally, Dr. Chiu will go over your medications and any that you will need to avoid as well. Patients will need someone to drive them home after surgery. So we recommend making plans for a driver ahead of time. Lastly, some patients may need lab work done ahead of time or have a mammogram. However, these cases are less common.

The Day of the Surgery

We know the day of a procedure can be stressful. So we make every effort to create a comfortable atmosphere where you feel ready and at ease. We begin with checking your vitals. Then, a board-certified anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia, ensuring optimal safety. While under the effects of the anesthesia, you will experience no pain. Dr. Chiu will then move step-by-step through your approved procedure plan. This involves three main steps:

  • Creating incisions (always as small as possible)
  • Placing the implant for the desired appearance
  • Suturing the incisions closed

Once the procedure is complete, the anesthesiologist will bring you back to consciousness. You can wait in a comfortable room while the effects wear off a bit more. Then you can return home the same day with someone to drive you.

The Recovery Process
The recovery timeline can vary for each patient, varying with factors like age, natural recovery speed, and complexity of the surgery. Dr. Chiu will provide you with a personalized timeline during your consultation based on these factors. However, a general outline can include:

  • The First Week

    Some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Wear a compression bra and avoid almost all physical activity. Can use medication for discomfort and reduce inflammation.

  • The Second Week

    Most patients can return to work by the end of the first week. However, continue to avoid medium to strenuous activity at this time. Very light activity (e.g., walking) is fine.

  • Third to Fourth Weeks

    Patients can gradually return to light physical activity, such as longer walks. However, avoid anything that might strain the upper body and chest.

  • Beyond

    By the end of the fourth week, most swelling and bruising should recede. Following approval at a check-up appointment, patients can return to their full normal routines. However, listen to your body. If something feels strained, then it is best not to push it.

Seeing Your Results

Breast enhancement procedures create immediate changes in breast shape and size. However, patients can best start enjoying their results only once the recovery process is complete. While the swelling and bruising following surgery are normal and generally mild, they still impact the appearance of the breasts. But once they fade, patients can begin to enjoy their new contours. Daily improvements will be visible as swelling continues to fade. After a couple of weeks, the new volume and shape of your breasts will be near to your final results. The last thing to wait for is for all residual swelling to go down and for the tissues to settle. This can take up to a few months. Still, you can fully enjoy your procedure benefits during this period.

Here is a breakdown of what it might look like:

  • 1 to 2 Weeks: Swelling and bruising from surgery.
  • 2 to 6 Weeks: Start to enjoy your results.
  • 6 Weeks to Several Months: Residual swelling fades, fully enjoy your enhanced breasts.
