Many women express anxiety or unhappiness about the size and appearance of their breasts. Some want to have larger breasts because they feel displeased with their body image. They feel that their breast size and shape is detracting from their silhouette and overall appearance. In many cases, our Los Angeles breast augmentation patients substantially improve self-confidence because of the increase in breast fullness that provides a more proportioned, balanced figure.
Popularity of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgeries because when done correctly it is a safe procedure that brings women immense happiness and immediate results. The surgical enlargement of breasts enhances the size, symmetry and overall appearance of a woman's figure through the placement of implants. Sometimes women want breast implants because their genetics gave them small breasts. Others found that their breasts became “deflated” after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or if they lost a significant amount of weight.
Breast Augmentation Consultation
During your initial consultation with Dr. Golshani, all of your questions and concerns will be addressed. He will speak with you about the benefits, risks, potential complications and options for breast implant types and sizes. An important part of the consultation is browsing many before/after pictures so Dr. Golshani can understand what your hopes are for your breast size. Dr. Golshani takes into account the unique needs of each patient and implant placement, type and size will be determined by your specific breast anatomy, body type and desired increase in breast size.
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures women undergo every year. Breast implants are the most popular, and often the most effective, form of breast augmentation. While women choose this procedure for many different reasons, one thing all of Dr. Golshani’s breast augmentation patients have in common is that they’re genuinely happy after their procedure.
Breast Augmentation Benefits:
While it seems easy to say that breast augmentation results in larger breasts, there are many benefits that can come with this larger breast size. These benefits of breast augmentation may include:
- Improved self-image and confidence
- Restored feeling of youthfulness and energy
- Ability to wear new clothing
- Increased social opportunities
- Increased comfort with, and feelings of, sexuality
- Personal transformation
The Most Important Factor in a Breast Augmentation
Sometimes we find that our Beverly Hills breast augmentation patients have unrealistic expectations. Dr. Golshani wants to make sure that every patient makes this choice about breast implants for the best reasons. Sometimes he meets with people who want breast implants because they’re trying to impress friends, a boyfriend, save a marriage, help with a divorce, land a new job, or get more dates. They do it for reasons beyond themselves.
Breast augmentation is a personal choice made because you want a better version of you, for you. Not for anyone else, and not because you think it will fix external aspects of your life.
Real Case Studies of Dr. Golshani’s Patients
Below you will find a few personal stories that Dr. Golshani wants to share with you. These patients have chosen to share their experiences with breast augmentation.
This patient wanted the natural breasts she had always dreamed of, and came in confidently knowing what she aimed for. After receiving her breast augmentation she instantly knew that her procedure was the best decision, boosting her confidence to new heights.
This patient had personally struggled with her small natural breasts, and came in for a breast enhancement procedure to meet her ideal self. During her procedure we also corrected her areolas to fit her new fuller breasts proportionately, giving them a natural look. Six months later she was still thrilled with her new look, and had a great sense of self worth.
Are there any risks?
There are risks with every surgical procedure, cosmetic or not. In the case of breast augmentation, the main concern is the issue of scarring. Scarring is inevitable for most cosmetic procedures, but Dr. Golshani has perfected his trade by learning the latest techniques that result in as minimal scarring as possible.
How much swelling will I have after my surgery?
Your breasts will naturally swell after this procedure and you shouldn’t be alarmed. It is normal for the breasts to swell to roughly a size larger than what the final results will produce. This varies case to case, but typically swelling begins to subside after the first week or two. Residual swelling can take months to fully dissipate, but the majority of swelling will be gone by then.
When can I return to work?
You should plan to have at least a few weeks of time to heal following a breast augmentation procedure. There is no set amount of time as every patient is case to case. Some will heal quickly, others will take longer. Most patients can expect to be back at work within a month. Patients with a desk job may return sooner, and patients with very active jobs may need more time. Light exercise and activities are beneficial during recovery, but heavy-duty lifting or strenuous activities should be avoided altogether for at least three weeks.
Can I still breastfeed after breast augmentation?
Many women are interested in getting breast implants but worry that this operation could interfere with their ability to breastfeed in the future. You can rest assured that Dr. Golshani’s techniques aim to avoid disruption of your milk supply. Some patients may experience nipples that are more sensitive following breast augmentation, however most of our patients have no trouble breastfeeding their children following a breast implant procedure.
Is breast augmentation right for me?
Breast augmentation is a personal choice you make on your own because you want to better yourself from the inside out. When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Golshani will help you understand if he thinks you are a good breast surgery candidate. In general, the best candidates for breast augmentation are:
- At least 18 years of age or older
- In good overall health
- Not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- Non smokers
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome
Are there different kinds of implants?
Yes. Dr. Golshani offers both silicon and saline implants (medium or high-profile), and a smooth surfaced or textured surface implant. At your consultation, he will explain in detail the difference between the implant types so that you can choose the best option for your case.
Is it better to place the implant over the muscle or under the muscle?
There are pros and cons to placing the implant over the muscle and placing it under the muscle. Having the implants placed under the muscle is slightly more painful and has a relatively long recovery period. On the other hand, some studies show that when implants are under the muscle, there is improved long-term contour and less chance of interference with a mammogram. The chance of capsular contracture or breast hardening may also be decreased by positioning the implant under the muscle.
Best Thing I've Done For Myself
For years I have contemplated getting a breast augmentation. I finally decided to go ahead and do it. I went to a total of 4 surgeons in the Beverly Hills area and after meeting Dr. G, I knew he was the surgeon for me. He is very talented, has amazing bedside manner, and makes you feel extremely comfortable while also assisting in making an informed decision by explaining ALL risks and complications. After doing the procedure, I am only 2 weeks post op, I couldn't be any happier! My breasts look amazing and everyone I show them to want them. My results are phenomenal and I attest it all to Dr. G and his exceptional skills and expertise in plastic surgery. THANK YOU!!!
I highly recommend Dr. Golshani
I was considering getting a breast augmentation for several years before visiting Dr. Golshani's office. I had been doing a great deal of working out which caused my breasts to get smaller, and in my opinion, hang lower. I always wore push up bras and never wanted to go without a bra in cute little tank tops even if they had built-in support. It was really the one part of my body that I couldn't change for the better with diet and exercise.
For years, I didn't think that I could afford the surgery, so I never even bothered to get a consultation. About a year ago, a friend recommended Dr. Golshani's Beverly Hills office for laser hair removal. The clinic had brochures outlining various cosmetic surgery procedures, including breast augmentation so I thought I would try and book a consulation.
Happily, my consultation went great. Dr. Golshani made me feel at ease immediately. He made sure that I was doing the surgery for myself and that no one else was influencing my decision. He also made sure that the size of my breasts after the surgery would be proportionate to my body size and build. Dr. Golshani answered all my questions thoroughly. The staff was always in contact with me helping me to get financing for the surgery and worked with me to schedule the surgery at a time that best suited my needs. They also worked with me in getting my required paperwork for being out of work for the required healing time.
The day of the surgery, Dr. Golshani helped me to feel a little less nervous about getting the surgery. After going home, he personally called me to see how I was doing. The surgery, overall, had a quick recovery time and I haven't had any complications. It took awhile getting used to my new breasts, but I'm so glad that I did it. I feel like my body is more proportionate than it had been previously. I feel more feminine and don't want to hide behind push-up bras anymore. It's bikini season, and I'm confident in wearing a cute little string bikini like I've always wanted to. I would recommend getting breast augmentation to anyone who wants it for the right reasons. I would also recommend Dr. Golshani to be the one who does it.
Should Have Done It Sooner! Great Experience!
Dr.Golshani was very comforting and respectful during my first consultation with him. He answered all of my questions and knew exactly the perfect size implant for my body size and shape. His staff is so supportive and really do hold your hand through out the whole process. If you want a positive experience in something that is really life changing than you should definitely consider having your surgery done with him!
