Breast Augmentation in Beverly Hills
here are many personal reasons that women explore breast enhancement, a desire for larger breasts, to restore pre-pregnancy volume, or to just return to a more youthful appearance. A woman’s satisfaction with the shape and size of her breast can help define her self image. No two breasts are alike, enhancing ones individuality is often a step towards obtaining a more positive body image. Dr Edween is dedicated to helping each woman find confidence in their bodies, so they feel more comfortable in the way they look, but more importantly the way they feel.
The ideal candidate for breast augmentation is a woman who has specific concerns regarding the size and shape of her breast, and realistic expectations regarding her expected outcome. It is important to be self-motivated, non-impulsive or pressured by her partner, and mostly well informed about the changes she is making on her breast size.
When choosing an implant size, many factors such as body type and breast shape come into play. Proportional body measurements are necessary to arrive at the desired size that achieves a total body balance. Breast augmentation is about enhancing ones individual aesthetics, beauty of the breast, and the body as a whole. During your consultation Dr Edween will listen to your goals and help guide your decision on what is the best to achieve your desired outcome. There are a few considerations:
Type of incision
- Periareolar: A semicircular placed around the nipple area
- Inframammary: Tucked under the breast within the breast fold
- Transumbilical: Tucked within the belly button/navel
- Axillary: Along the crease within the armpit
Type of Implants
There are basically two types of breast implants to consider:
- Saline: Commonly used for primary augmentation. Saline is a natural occurring substance in body, enables total customization for asymmetric breasts
- Silicone gel: Designed to feel softer to the touch
There are two types of placement of implants:
- Subglandular: The implant is placed above the pectoralalis muscle, advantages being a faster recovery.
- Submuscular, where the implant is placed below both the pectoral muscle andoverlying breast tissue. The results provide a more natural appearance, it is less prone to scar tissue and provide a better view on mammography.
Deciding which incision and which implant placement method is best done after a consultation and physical examination, since your breast shape and desired results will dictate the implant profile options appropriate for you. Dr. Edween only uses top quality breast implants from Natrelle and Mentor, companies that have strict standards with warranties on their products.
Dr. Edween’s preferred method for insertion of saline implants is through the belly button breast surgery, and she is highly skilled at the “hidden scar” transumbilical or TUBA method. Her mastery of the technique has drawn patients to Beverly Hills from all over the world. “The scar is the most inconspicuous, the results are very natural and my patient’s recover in a faster amount of time” she states.
“Even though I wanted to get my breasts done, I didn’t want anyone else to know. Dr. Edween helped me find that size that fits me perfectly. I finally feel good wearing a bikini.”
