Add Fullness to Your Life
At Palos Verdes Plastic Surgery Medical Center, serving Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, breast augmentation is all about filling in what nature left out, or what child bearing has taken away. Wanting to enhance your breast size doesn’t always mean that you want to be sexier, not that sexy isn’t okay. Small breasts can create disharmony in your figure, leaving you looking bottom-heavy. Enlarging your breasts adds balance to your body and can improve your self-image.
Dr. Petti’s innovative breast augmentation procedure can improve the contour of your breasts easily and safely with results that are so natural looking, only you and she will know you’ve had an operation. Computer imaging can help you to communicate your desired size and shape. Dr. Petti loves this opportunity to help you achieve your goal. She uses both silicone gel and saline breast implants and has vast experience in all types of cosmetic breast enhancement.
Breast Implant Revision
Know About Your Options
As a specialist in cosmetic breast surgery, Dr. Petti has found that breast augmentation is a very rewarding procedure for both patient and surgeon. As with any operation, however, results can be disappointing, and not meet the expectations of both patient and surgeon alike. The results of breast augmentation can change over time. Dr. Christine Petti’s opinion has been in demand over the course of her career, as she is valued as a plastic surgeon who listens, analyzes and develops a plan to assist these special patients who seek an opinion regarding revisional breast implant surgery.
Give Yourself a Lift!
Pregnancy and aging often relax the skin that envelops the breast, causing it to sag. Recapturing your pre-pregnancy or youthful breast contour is possible with Beverly Hills area doctor Christine Petti’s state-of-the-art breast lift techniques, which attempt to minimize scars at every stage of the procedure. Toning and tightening of the upper breast, combined with supporting tissue alignment, allows Dr. Petti to tailor her skills for your enhanced image. Computer imaging helps you and Dr. Petti to plan your surgery and communicate your desires to help achieve your goal. The results are truly uplifting!
Breast Lift with Augmentation
Restore youthful lift and volume.
When the breasts have begun to lose shape and volume due to pregnancies, weight loss, or aging, Dr. Petti can restore a more youthful, lifted appearance by performing a breast lift with augmentation (also called a breast lift with implants or breast augmentation mastopexy). This comprehensive procedure combines a breast lift with the placement of breast implants to rejuvenate and enhance the breasts. Using a variety of lift techniques and wide range of breast implant options, Dr. Petti customizes each breast augmentation mastopexy (BAM) procedure to suit the unique needs and cosmetic goals of the patient. She listens closely to your concerns and desires, explains your options, and creates an effective plan designed to achieve elegant, natural-looking results. If you are dissatisfied by the way your breasts have changed over time, a breast lift with augmentation can revitalize your figure and boost your confidence!
Lighten the Weight Off Your Shoulders
Overdeveloped breasts are heavy and can cause strain on your shoulders, back and neck. Skeletal deformities, breathing problems, and emotional trauma are often the result. Years ago women suffered through it all, but not any more.
Removing excess skin, glandular tissue, and fat can lighten the weight of heavy, pendulous breasts. Dr. Petti specializes in breast reduction techniques designed to give you an improved and well-proportioned body profile. The change will amaze you, and you’ll wonder why you waited so long. Computerized imaging can now give you a preview of your potential new shape, so get ready for a brand new you!
Restore Your Pre-Pregnancy Figure!
A Mommy Makeover can include a variety of surgical and non-surgical treatments that work to restore areas of the body affected by pregnancy. Some of the issues most commonly experienced after pregnancy include: saggy or deflated breasts, excess skin and/or fat in the midsection, and areas of extra fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Moms can enjoy the gifts that motherhood offer while looking and feeling great about their appearance, and a Mommy Makeover can help you achieve that!
En Bloc Breast Implant Removal
There are many reasons you may want to have your breast implants removed and Dr. Petti is experienced in all types of explant and implant replacement procedures. En bloc capsulectomy is an advanced breast implant removal procedure that is performed under certain circumstances to protect a patient’s health and/or provide peace of mind when breast implant-related health issues are a concern. Dr. Petti is proud to offer her patients this specific explant option and she performs a comprehensive evaluation and diagnostic process to ensure that en bloc capsulectomy is the procedure best suited to each patient’s needs and goals. As with all breast surgeries, Dr. Petti develops a customized surgical plan—and in these cases, plans may include the en bloc capsulectomy procedure combined with other techniques to achieve natural-looking breast shape and volume restoration.
