Beverly Hills Breast Augmentation
Enhance your look with breast implants
The size, shape, and overall appearance of a woman’s breasts can dramatically affect her confidence and self-esteem.
Ladies who are unhappy with their breasts may struggle to feel feminine and attractive. They may also avoid wearing certain clothes and even struggle to enjoy intimacy with their partner.
Thankfully, breast augmentation surgery means that women can get the breasts, of which they have always dreamed. A successful breast augmentation can increase the size of the breasts, giving them a fuller and more shapely appearance.
Dr. Malcolm Lesavoy, a highly experienced and board-certified plastic surgeon, is delighted to be able to offer his skill and expertise in providing breast augmentation surgery to women in the Beverly Hills area.
As one of the most knowledgeable breast augmentation providers, Dr. Lesavoy wrote the chapter “Breast Augmentation” in Plastic Surgery, an 8-volume textbook edited by Mathes that is considered the gold standard in plastic surgery textbooks.
The procedure is done in our office certified surgery center, with general anesthesia carried out by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, and you can go to your home the same day of surgery.
The final result must look natural, and not look fake, yet still accomplish your goal of having larger breasts appropriate for your size and for your wishes.

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size, shape, and volume of the breasts. This is typically achieved through the placement of implants either under the breast tissue or the chest muscles. The implants can be made of saline or silicone gel. The procedure can help increase fullness, improve balance of breast and hip contours, and enhance self-image and self-confidence.
Top 5 Things to Consider If You Are Contemplating Breast Augmentation:
1. Type of Implant:
Saline vs. Silicone: Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and can be adjusted for firmness, shape, and feel. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are filled with silicone gel and tend to feel more like natural breast tissue. It’s essential to understand the pros and cons of each type and discuss with your surgeon which might be best for you.
2. Surgeon’s Expertise and Experience:
Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in breast augmentations is crucial. Reviewing before-and-after photos, patient testimonials, and verifying the surgeon’s credentials can provide insight into their expertise.
3. Potential Risks and Complications:
As with any surgery, breast augmentation comes with potential risks. These can include implant leakage or rupture, changes in nipple or breast sensation, scarring, and complications related to anesthesia. It’s essential to discuss these risks with your surgeon and understand the measures taken to minimize them.
4. Recovery Period:
Recovery from breast augmentation typically takes several weeks. There might be swelling, pain, and a tight feeling in the chest initially. It’s essential to follow post-operative care instructions, avoid strenuous activities, and wear support bras as directed. Ensure you have a clear understanding of the recovery timeline and any restrictions.
5. Long-Term Considerations:
Breast implants are not lifetime devices. They may need to be replaced if there are complications or if the size and shape of the breasts change over time. Regular check-ups with your surgeon and periodic imaging tests (like MRI) are recommended to assess the condition of the implants.
Dr. Lesavoy will make incisions to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible, such as around the nipple, in the breast crease, or in the armpit. Breast tissue and skin will then be lifted to create a pocket for each implant.
Working through the incision, Dr. Lesavoy will lift your breast tissue and skin to create a pocket, either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath your chest wall muscle (the pectoral muscle). The implants are then centered beneath your nipples.
In some cases, putting the implants behind your chest muscle may reduce the potential for capsular contracture. Drainage tubes may be used for several days following the surgery. This placement may also interfere less with breast examination by mammogram than if the implant is placed directly behind the breast tissue. Placement behind the muscle however, may be more painful for a few days after surgery than placement directly under the breast tissue.
The breast implant may be inserted directly under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle.
You’ll want to discuss the pros and cons of these alternatives with Dr. Lesavoy before surgery to make sure you fully understand the implications of the procedure he recommends for you.
Breast implant surgery usually takes one to two hours to complete. Stitches are used to close the incisions, which may also be taped for greater support. A gauze bandage may be applied over your breasts to help with healing.
After surgery, breasts appear fuller and more natural in tone and contour. Scars will fade with time.
- Saline implants are inserted empty and then filled with saline.
- Silicone implants are pre-filled and available in a variety of sizes. Silicone implants are considered to feel the most like natural breast tissue and preferred by Dr. Lesavoy.
