Dr. Michael R. Schwartz Discusses Breast Augmentation Procedure
What results can I expect from my breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is an extremely versatile procedure – especially when it’s performed by a leading expert in the field like Dr. Schwartz. To that end, here are just a few of the results that are possible when you undergo a breast augmentation:
Larger and more beautiful breasts
After having a breast augmentation with Thousand Oaks plastic surgeon Dr. Schwartz, you can expect to possess larger and more beautiful breasts that can help to enhance your overall appearance and better fit your figure.
If one of your breasts is larger, smaller or a different shape than the other, that asymmetry can be improved during surgery – helping to restore balance and harmony to your chest.
Fuller and rounder breasts
In addition to larger breasts, once having breast augmentation with Dr. Schwartz you can also expect to emerge with breasts that are round, full and naturally perky.
No matter what size and shape you ultimately choose, you can be assured that Dr. Schwartz will place your implants so that they look and feel extremely natural.

An overview of breast augmentation surgery
To prepare for your Westlake Village breast augmentation, Dr. Schwartz will work closely with you to determine what size, shape and implant type will help you achieve the overall look you desire. He will then use Vectra 3D Imaging Technology so you can visualize exactly what your breasts will look like after surgery.
To begin the actual procedure, one of our board certified anesthesiologists will administer general anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety. Dr. Schwartz will then make a precise incision, either at the bottom of the breast (inframammary), under the arm (axillary) or around the areola (periareolar). This is a critical aspect of your procedure, as the placement of the incision can impact your scarring, nipple sensation and breastfeeding options. Prior to surgery, Dr. Schwartz will discuss the benefits and risks of each option, and help you determine which incision is in your best interest.
After Dr. Schwartz has made the incision, he will place your implants. There are two placement options available, and you and Dr. Schwartz will decide together which one is best beforehand. For the subglandular breast implant placement, Dr. Schwartz will position the implant in front of the pectoral muscle and behind the breast tissue. For the submuscular breast implant placement, Dr. Schwartz will position the implant underneath the pectoral muscle. Once the implant has been placed, Dr. Schwartz will expertly close the incisions to minimize any scarring.
Dr. Schwartz’s talent and capabilities as a surgeon are beyond compare.

What kind of breast implants are available?
Today, most patients choose silicone anatomical breast implants for their breast augmentation procedure. FDA-approved for patients over 22 years of age, they are cohesive implants that feel more natural and are less likely to ripple and rupture when compared to saline implants.
In the United States, there are three implant manufacturers, and Dr. Schwartz uses them all: Sientra, Mentor and Allergan (Natrelle). These implants may be smooth or have a textured surface, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on your precise cosmetic desires. During your consultation for among the best breast augmentation Calabasas has to offer, Dr. Schwartz will advise on which implant type, size and shape will best accomplish your unique goals.
