This week the FDA announced approval of Sientra Silimed new silicone breast implants for use in the United States. The Silimed breast implant is the only silicone breast implant to be approved in the United States since the FDA approved the use of Mentor’s and Allergan’s silicone breast implants for cosmetic breast surgery in November 2006. Like the approval in 2006, the Silimed line of breast implants was approved for use for cosmetic breast enhancement (in women 22 years and older) and for breast reconstruction. The Silimed line consists of both smooth and textured implants in moderate and high profile designs.
A Mommy Makeover in Los Angeles is a combination of body contouring procedures that helps mothers return to their pre-childbearing, girlish figures.
Most commonly, a Mommy Makeover in Beverly Hills is performed in one stage and consists of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), and breast enhancement with implants (breast augmentation). However, a Mommy Makeover can also be split into two operations (staged) and can include other procedures such as breast lifting (mastopexy), breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) and liposuction of the abdomen, hips, thighs and back.
Many patients who have tummy tucks performed will also require repair of a hernia through their belly button (umbilical hernia).
Each Mommy Makeover experience with Dr. Brenner is unique and is tailored to the patient’s individual needs. For more information on mommy makeover procedure, visit our Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Office page or call Dr. Brenner’s office at 310-777-5400.
