Breast Augmentation Torrance, CA

Women experiencing dissatisfaction with the size or shape of their breasts, often resulting from natural variations, weight changes, post-pregnancy transformations, or recovery from medical treatments, may find a viable solution in breast augmentation. Despite various attempts to modify breast appearance through exercise and wardrobe choices, significant changes in breast size and shape are unattainable through these methods alone. Breast augmentation surgery offers a permanent resolution, enhancing body image by precisely addressing these concerns.

South Bay Aesthetics Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. Christopher Verbin, offers breast augmentation as a cornerstone service for those seeking aesthetic enhancement in Torrance, CA. This procedure is designed to alter the size and shape of the breast, fulfilling a range of personal aesthetic goals. Our commitment to breast augmentation stems from its ability to provide tailored outcomes, making it a pivotal service for individuals looking to make precise adjustments to their appearance.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure to enhance the size, shape, and fullness of the breasts. This is typically achieved through inserting breast implants (saline or gel). The process involves placing implants either below the pectoralis major muscle (subpectoral) or above it but under the breast tissue (subglandular), depending on individual anatomy and desired outcomes.

The placement of the implant can be achieved through three different incisions: periareolar (around the lower border of the areola), transaxillary (within a crease in the armpit), or inframammary (just above the lower breast fold). The choice of incision site, implant type, and breast size largely rests with the patient, though their specific breast shape and anatomy often influence it. This personalized approach ensures that the outcomes meet the individual’s aesthetic goals, providing a satisfying and positive experience with breast augmentation.

Gummy Bear Implants: Our Choice for Breast Augmentation

Our patients have preferred the shaped “Gummy Bear” implants, known for their highly cohesive silicone gel that mimics breast tissue’s natural feel and appearance. These anatomical, or tear-drop-shaped implants, offer a natural-looking enhancement, aligning seamlessly with the body’s contours. Additionally, we offer expandable breast implants, which allow for postoperative volume adjustment, providing flexibility and fine-tuning of the breast size over several months.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Enhanced Volume and Curvature

Breast augmentation significantly increases breast volume, providing a fuller, more rounded appearance. This benefit is particularly valued by women seeking a more voluptuous profile.

Improved Breast Symmetry

Many women experience natural asymmetry in their breasts. This procedure allows for correcting such discrepancies, achieving a more balanced and symmetrical breast appearance.

Restored Breast Shape Post-Pregnancy

Pregnancy and breastfeeding often lead to lost breast volume and shape. Breast augmentation can restore the pre-pregnancy appearance of the breasts, rejuvenating their overall look.

Customizable Results

With various implant types, sizes, and shapes available, breast augmentation offers highly customizable results. Patients can achieve a look tailored to their unique body shape and aesthetic goals.

Long-Lasting Results

Breast implants are designed for durability, offering long-lasting results. Many patients enjoy their enhanced appearance for many years following the procedure.

Corrective Option for Congenital Issues

For women with congenital breast development issues, such as micromastia, breast augmentation provides a corrective solution, allowing for normal breast development appearance.

Improved Proportionality

By enhancing breast size, breast augmentation can improve the overall body proportion. This creates a more balanced figure that aligns with individual aesthetic desires.

Minimal Scarring

Advanced surgical techniques ensure minimal scarring, with incisions typically hidden in inconspicuous areas. This makes the cosmetic enhancement discreet.

Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation

The breast augmentation surgery typically takes between one and two hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure and the technique used. Patients are usually under general anesthesia during this time to ensure comfort and safety throughout the surgery.

Recovery time can vary, but most patients can return to work and light activities within a week, with full recovery taking up to six weeks. Following our post-operative care instructions closely is vital to ensure a smooth and swift healing process.

Breast augmentation generally does not affect a woman’s ability to breastfeed, especially when the implants are placed under the muscle and the incisions are made in areas that do not disturb milk ducts. However, discussing your breastfeeding plans with us during the consultation is essential to tailor the procedure accordingly.

Breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime but are highly durable and can last many years. On average, implants may need to be replaced or removed after 10 to 15 years, either due to cosmetic reasons or implant integrity, but many last longer without complications.

Recovery from breast augmentation surgery typically involves a period of rest and limited activity to allow the body to heal. Patients may experience some swelling and discomfort, which can be managed with medication prescribed by their surgeon. Most can return to work and light activities within a week, with full recovery and final results visible after several weeks to months.
