Making the Right Decision during your breast implant surgery
When it comes to breast enhancement, a patient’s eligibility is fairly easy to determine. Beyond surgical health requirements, a patient is a candidate for breast augmentation when she feels her breasts are lacking in some way. Specifically, this can include the following:
- Breasts with inadequate volume
- Volume loss after pregnancy
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Tuberous breast deformity
Through decades of experience, Dr. Fisher has developed a unique surgical philosophy, important to anyone aspiring to be the world's best breast surgeon. Rather than accepting any patient for surgery based on their ability to pay, he goes above and beyond to determine what’s truly the best course of action. After a rigorous consultation process, his surgical plan must be in coordination with his patient’s goals, and his confidence to achieve their goals must be
absolute. If Dr. Fisher accepts a patient for surgery, it is because he is certain he can provide her with among the best breast implants Beverly Hills and the world have to offer.
Breast Augmentation Results
Following your procedure with Dr. Garth Fisher, you can expect to possess beautiful breasts that are larger, fuller and more shapely. And because your breasts will look and feel exceptionally natural, you’ll also love the way they fit and move with your body.
Here is a closer look at a few of the most common reasons women seek breast augmentation surgery, along with the exquisite results you can expect to achieve when you undergo the procedure with world-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Fisher:
Size. A common request among women, size is perhaps the top reason women seek breast implants in Beverly Hills and around the world. In these cases, Dr. Fisher will artfully enhance the size of your breasts to create the figure you desire, without compromising a natural appearance.
In addition to requesting larger breasts, many women are also interested in obtaining rounder, fuller and more shapely breasts. In these cases, Dr. Fisher will meticulously sculpt the breasts to achieve the precise look you desire, with or without adding a cup size.
Breast asymmetry is a common complaint among women of all ages. If your breasts are asymmetrical or malformed, a breast augmentation with Dr. Fisher will create two perfectly balanced breasts, restoring a harmonious, natural look.
Following breast cancer surgery or a preventative mastectomy (the removal of one or both breasts) it is very common for women to desire breast augmentation during their reconstruction procedures. In these cases, Dr. Fisher will enhance your breasts to restore a full, beautiful and natural look that delivers an enormous boost of confidence.
Although substantial weight loss is a welcomed change, the impact it has on the breasts can be alarming. Weight loss can significantly alter the size and shape of your breasts, often creating a deflated and misshapen appearance. When this occurs, Dr. Fisher will artfully create perkier, younger-looking breasts that better suit your beautiful new figure.
Pregnancy can certainly take a toll on a woman’s breasts, causing them to deflate and lose a great deal of volume. Often performed as part of a Mommy Makeover, breast augmentation with Dr. Fisher will restore your breasts to their pre-pregnancy state – enhancing them, shaping them and adding the perfect amount of volume to achieve the most natural result possible.
Breast Implant Options Beverly Hills, CA
Breast augmentation with implants cannot be a one-size-fits-all, cookie-cutter procedure. Patients have a wide range of options as to type of implant, size and shape, location and placement, and the surgical approach employed. Whether you are looking to get a Beverly Hills mommy makeover or just a little more volume, it is always best to educate yourself on all the breast implant types there are available to you.
Types of Breast Implants
Our Beverly Hills breast implants are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and feel. There are three basic types of breast implants.
A saline implant is a silicone shell that is filled with sterile saline solution after the shell has been placed in the breast pocket. This type of implant has several advantages:
- Size flexibility: As saline implants are inserted as empty shells and then filled with saline solution, adjustments in size can be made after the implants are in place.
- Natural saline solution: In case of implant leak or rupture, saline solution can be easily and safely absorbed by the body.
- Leak detection: If a leak or rupture develops with saline implants, it will become immediately apparent and the issue can be resolved quickly.
- Incision options: As saline implants are inserted as empty shells, they will require smaller incisions, and can be placed through hidden incision sites.
Silicone Gel Implants
These implants consist of a silicone shell filled with semi-cohesive, soft silicone gel. Advantages of silicone gel implants are:
- Softer and more natural look and feel
- Less rippling and wrinkling
- Can be placed over the muscle in women who have modest breast tissue
- Lower risk of downward displacement (silicone is lighter than saline)
Gummy Bear Implants
Also known as anatomical or shaped breast implants, gummy bear implants are a new type of silicone implant, filled with a strong cohesive silicone gel. Advantages of anatomical implants include:
- Teardrop shape that mimics the natural contour of the female breast
- Natural look and feel
- Low risk of ripples, wrinkles, and creases
- Ruptures and leaks are unlikely to occur
Location and Placement of Implants
Placement of breast implants can be subglandular (above the muscle), submuscular (under the muscle), or dual-plane (under the muscle with the muscle released so the implant can settle to the bottom half of the breast).
- Placement above the muscle carries more risk of rippling and capsular contracture (shrinking and tightening of scar tissue around the implant) and may look unnatural in women who have limited breast tissue.
- Placement under the muscle creates a more natural appearance, but the muscle may prevent the implant from settling, causing a loss of fullness and roundness in the bottom of the breast.
- Dual-plane (half-and-half) placement is a hybrid of subglandular and submuscular techniques. The implant is under the muscle for a more natural look and feel, yet the muscle is moved out of the way, allowing the implant to settle into place for fuller, rounder, natural-looking breasts.
Incisions and Surgical Approach
There are 4 different incision placements in breast augmentation:
- Periareolar – at the bottom of the areola;
- Inframammary – in the fold at the bottom of the breast;
- Transaxillary – in the armpit; and
- Transumbilical – through the navel.
Choice of incision placement is based on the type of implant, the patient’s anatomy, the degree of enlargement, and the preferences of both the patient and the surgeon. The transumbilical incision is limited to saline implants, which are filled after placement. The periareolar approach does not cause loss of sensation in most cases, as some believe. This is caused by damage to a nerve near the armpit, which can occur by placing an implant that is too large. After carefully considering
all factors, Dr. Fisher will recommend the best incision placement for you.

Breast Augmentation FAQ
Is There an Age Limit for Breast Augmentation?
Many women who are concerned about breast size, shape, or asymmetry choose to undergo a breast augmentation in their late teens or twenties. However, time and life experiences can lead to other aesthetic concerns, such as loss of volume or sagging.
Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond. Breast augmentation is an option if you are in good general health, and safe to undergo surgery. Dr. Garth is committed to creating the perfect breast shape and size for your body shape and will work closely with you to help you achieve the plump, lovely breasts you envision.
Will a Breast Augmentation Increase My Risk of Breast Cancer?
The simple answer is no – breast augmentation surgery will not increase your risk of developing breast cancer. Breast cancer has a strong genetic component and is typically not influenced by materials or methods used during a breast augmentation procedure. The materials used to make breast implants are FDA-approved as being safe for contact with the human body. Dr. Fisher utilizes the industry’s leading technology and cutting-edge techniques for patient safety and health in breast augmentation surgery.
Should I Wait Until After I’m Done Having Kids to Have a Breast Augmentation?
The changing hormones associated with pregnancy cause a woman’s breasts to grow larger. Your breasts may then lose volume and size after childbirth as your hormone levels stabilize. Your breasts may droop due to weight after pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. Every woman’s body is unique, but Dr. Fisher can perform breast augmentation surgery on women who plan on breastfeeding children in the future.
Is a Breast Augmentation Painful?
You will be given anesthesia for the surgery, but it is normal to experience some discomfort during recovery. You will be sore for the first few days after your procedure, with swelling and bruising. The pain is manageable with medication prescribed to you by Dr. Fisher. He will guide you through each step of your recovery process to make you more comfortable and achieve the best possible results after your Beverly Hills breast augmentation.
Will I Have Scarring After my Breast Augmentation?
Scarring after breast augmentation is rarely visible because of the strategic locations of the incisions combined with the cutting-edge techniques of Dr. Fisher. Saline implants are filled after being placed in position and therefore require a shorter incision. Incisions are typically placed in discreet locations such as in the fold of the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit fold. These incisions typically heal into a thin line and are easily hidden by undergarments, bathing suits, and clothing.
What is Recovery Like After Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Every woman’s recovery will be different and depends on many factors, including:
- Length and placement of incisions
- Degree of enhancement
- Your adherence to all aftercare instructions
- Your individual immune system
Most women can expect to resume light activities after a few days and take approximately five to ten days off of work. Dr. Fisher will let you know when you can resume work and exercise based on your line of work, your unique breast augmentation procedure, and how quickly you are healing.
