About Breast Augmentation
Some women just never develop a breast size that is proportionate to the rest of our body. Many women experience significant deflation after childbearing and breastfeeding. Whether you fit into one of these categories or just wish that you could wear a spaghetti strap sundress without a push-up bra, and still have some fullness of the breasts on top, you can now explore the options of breast enhancement surgery at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS in Beverly Hills, CA. Dr. Trott believes the appropriateness of the implant for the size and shape of your breast as well as the pocket that it sits in are as important as the actual size and shape of the implant itself. Dr. Suzanne Trott’s ability to achieve the best breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty) result for you is due to a combination of her artistic eye and her methodical approach. During your pre-op visit you will have ample time to try on implant sizes so that you can best determine what you like. However, as double board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Trott tells all of her patients, the result is not just determined by the style or even size of the implant but by how it fits the size and shape of your breast and the pocket that is created for it. Dr. Trott takes many extra measures, to ensure your breasts will be as beautiful, natural-appearing and as even as possible.
Your research of breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty) surgery may have left you even more confused, with all of the "buzz words" from the media, internet or doctor’s offices; "under the muscle," "over the muscle," "dual plane," "high profile," "low profile," "capsular contracture," and of course "silicone vs. saline." We hope that the following information will help give you some answers.
Breast Augmentation Reviews
"Dr. Trott is what every patient dreams of.... extremely knowledgeable, professional, accredited, personable, and meticulous. Most importantly she listens to you and only wants to give you what you are looking for, and does NOT try to talk you into anything you are not. And she would tell you if you DON'T need plastic surgery/lipo and if you should just go home and do sit-ups! You can tell she genuinely cares for her patients, takes much pride in her work and is only satisfied with perfection. I am 5 months post op of a breast augmentation and Dr. Trott gave me exactly what I was hoping for. She did not try to talk me into a larger cup size, she knew i wanted a very natural looking shape that fit my body. She's real, easy to talk to, and an excellent physician and plastic surgeon. Her staff is wonderful. Office is very comfortable, bright, and modern. The surgical center was not only gorgeous, but also very comfortable and private. And all the staff there made me feel very relaxed and I knew I was in good hands.I HIGHLY recommend her to everyone I know and would ONLY trust DR. TROTT to care for my friends and family."- T.L. / Yelp / Jul 04, 2010

"I had originally gone to a different surgeon for my first breast augmentation and had THE WORST experience. From start to finish everything just felt so impersonal and wrong, and the results were terrible.After 2 years I found Dr.Trott through referrals of friends who had nothing but good things to say, and show, from their experience with her and I couldn't agree more. The second I met her she made me feel so comfortable, went over everything in so much detail, brought up questions I would never even think to ask. She explained to me why I had such bad results, was very honest about what she could do to fix them, gave me all my options and her opinions on them. She was amazing. After surgery she was available 24/7 with any concerns or questions I had, and the results are better than I could ever imagine!!! I really could go on and on with great things to say about her and her team. 10 stars!"- D.O. / Yelp / Mar 21, 2017

Women who are healthy, in good medical condition, and who do not smoke can be considered for breast augmentation surgery. The majority of women who have this surgery do so because they are not satisfied with the current shape and size of their breasts. During the initial consultation, we will discuss requirements for surgery and determine what is necessary and/or realistic for your preferred goals. Suitable candidates for augmentation are women who exhibit disproportional breast size for their body shape, uneven breasts or asymmetry, a loss of firmness or breast tissue due to genetics, childbirth, and/or weight loss, and those who simply want a larger breast size. It is important to note that women who have sagging or drooping breasts may not be good candidates for this surgery; a breast lift or breast lift with augmentation is often better in these situations.
What to Expect
Based on your personal goals and the aesthetic outcome you desire, we will discuss the best treatment options during the consultation. Silicone and saline implants remain the primary choice in breast augmentation surgery. Saline implants are filled with saltwater at the time of surgery and give the doctor more control to make adjustments as needed during the operation. Saline filled implants are said to feel firmer than silicone and are recommended for patients who have enough natural breast tissue to avoid visible rippling. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are pre-filled and leave no room for adjustments during surgery. They tend to feel and look a bit more natural and are a better choice for women with very little breast tissue.
For patients who do not want an implant, but still desire a fuller breast size, an autologous fat transfer may be an option. This is a procedure that takes fat from one area of the body using liposuction, and then transfers the healthy, grafted fat layer by layer into the breast until the desired shape and size has been achieved.
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes under 2 hours to complete. After the procedure, our nurses will carefully wrap the patient in a sterile surgical dressing and create some compression with a medical sports bra. In the immediate days that follow surgery, the patient will be sore and swollen, but the aesthetic result will be seen immediately. Patients should take it easy for several days, but most can return to work within about 3 – 5 days. We advise no exercise for approximately 4 – 6 weeks to allow the breasts appropriate healing time. It takes about 4 – 6 months for the breasts to "drop" into their final position and for all swelling and bruising to go away, as well as a return of full breast sensation.
Following a thorough consultation, each patient will be given a customized treatment plan. This plan will be tailored based on many factors. It will determine the type of implant that will garner the patient's optimal results, and recommend the appropriate size, shape, texture, and brand of implant to use. Our surgeon will consider how much native breast tissue exists and an assessment will be made regarding breast base width, bone structure, skin tone, and a comparison of body shape to the breast size. Our goal is to produce the most natural-looking outcome for each patient. We will also discuss the appropriate incision type and placement once the implant is chosen. Breast implants typically are inserted beneath the pectoral muscle. Our first two choices for the incision is at the fold of the breast or adjacent to the nipple. We offer the most advanced techniques for your case to best hide scarring and provide the most gorgeous, natural outcome.
