Breast augmentation is a transformative cosmetic procedure used to enhance and refine the contours of the breasts. As a result of this procedure, you can become more confident and achieve the breasts that you’ve always wanted.
The surgical technique can involve the placement of implants, which are carefully chosen to create a natural look and feel. Alternatively, the skillful transfer of fat from select areas of your body to the breasts can be performed. An integrated or composite technique can be performed using both implants and fat transfer. Through these methods, Dr. Li can create results that resonate with your unique aesthetic vision.
At CA Aesthetics, the journey to your ideal breasts begins with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Li. He will conduct a thorough assessment of your individual needs and objectives for treatment to tailor the surgery to perfectly align with your goals. If you are seeking not only a breast augmentation but also have loose and excess breast skin, Dr. Li can perform a breast augmentation with a lift/mastopexy at the same time for optimal fullness and perkiness. Lastly, liposuction can complement breast augmentation surgery as it further refines the armpit or lateral chest areas to enhance the silhouette of the breasts.
For a breast augmentation procedure, we use general anesthesia to prioritize your comfort. Dr. Li uses expert techniques to create well-concealed incisions. These precise incisions are discreetly located in the armpit, beneath the breasts, or encircling the areolas, creating only minimal scarring that fades with time. Through these openings, implants are skillfully inserted using a minimal touch technique and a Keller funnel.
Choosing to have your breast augmentation surgery at CA Aesthetics opens the door to a variety of implant choices. Your options are thoughtfully chosen to match your unique preferences and aesthetic ideals. Dr. Li’s thorough consultations ensure that you are well-informed and empowered to make the best decision for your body and desired outcome.
During the initial consultation, Dr. Li takes the time to delve into the intricacies of breast implant options. Choosing your specific breast implants is an important decision, so Dr. Li is here to guide you through the available options. He can answer all your questions to ensure that you feel confident about your choice. In most cases, Dr. Li recommends smooth silicone gel implants as these feel most natural are less heavy than saline implants, and have more variability in design. Silicone gel implants also have a lower risk of rippling.
Furthermore, Dr. Li prefers round gel implants, as these naturally take on a teardrop shape when they are placed in your body. This is more ideal than anatomical (teardrop-shaped) implants that often have texturing. Anatomical implants can flip and cause issues such as abnormal breast shape. Additionally, implants with texture have also been linked to chronic inflammation.
Dr. Li provides a variety of top-quality options, such as Allergan, Mentor, and Sientra. During your consultation, our team will help you compare your options and find the most suitable fit for your dream appearance.
Breast implants deliver a long-lasting enhancement, but they are not lifelong fixtures like your natural breast tissue. Over time, your implants will need renewal. Breast implants typically last 10 to 15 years. After that, it’s recommended to have a revision procedure that includes breast implant replacement.
Our commitment to your ongoing satisfaction and health is paramount. Dr. Li encourages you to schedule annual appointments to give him the opportunity to thoroughly assess your implants for any emerging issues that could warrant early replacement. At CA Aesthetics, our dedication to your health and body confidence extends beyond the initial surgery. We want to embrace this journey with you as a trusted partner. As the years go by, you can rest assured that we will be here to provide comprehensive care and support you with your long-term aesthetic needs.
