Breast Augmentation, also called breast implants or mammoplasty, is one of the most common surgical procedures that Dr. Sheila Nazarian, your Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, performs in Nazarian Plastic Surgery. It is commonly used to give more fullness and a slight lift to the breasts. There are multiple ways to perform this procedure. However, some methods are safer than others and Dr. Nazarian can further elucidate this for you at your consultation. For breast enlargement, FDA-approved saline or silicone gel implants are used.
Types of Breast Implants
There are different types of breast implants used to enlarge breasts. Dr. Nazarian can help you decide which options work best for your particular type of body in an one-on-one plastic surgery consultation at her Beverly Hills office.
Silicone- Form stable, shaped, gummy bear, round, textured and smooth
Saline- Textured and smooth
Fat- Natural, soft and smooth
Types of Breast Augmentation Incisions
The types of breast augmentation incisions contribute to the successful outcome of breast augmentation procedures. To reduce any visible scars and to achieve the most natural looking results, Dr. Nazarian utilizes small incisions placed either beneath the breast in the natural skin fold or along the edge of the areola where they are less obvious.
Incision underneath the breast (inframammary augmentation)
Incision on lower half of the areola (periareolar augmentation)
Incision through the armpit (axillary augmentation)
Incision through the belly button (umbilical augmentation)
Undergoing breast augmentation is a major decision. Dr. Nazarian is available to discuss and answer some of the questions you may have regarding breast augmentation, explain all available options, the risks involved, the alternatives, and key benefits so that you can both come to a personalized decision about your custom breast augmentation.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation surgical procedure typically lasts around 2 to 3 hours. Dr. Nazarian’s goal is to achieve a natural, attractive look. As a woman, she understands what women want. She will optimize the size and shape for each individual as this surgery requires skill and an understanding of shape and scale.

I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
