Dr. Grant Stevens, a renowned board-certified plastic surgeon from Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, has seen an increase in the number of Los Angeles breast augmentation patients as summer comes into full swing. He believes that the greater number of women seeking breast augmentation is symptomatic of the warmer weather and the desire to spend more time outdoors participating in activities like swimming and going to the beach.
“In Los Angeles, it seems there are always people at the beach during any time of the year,” says Dr. Stevens. “But there is certainly a larger number of people out on the beaches during the summer months. Those from the inland parts of L.A. are trying to escape the triple-digit weather while many others are spending their summer vacation time exploring the sights of L.A.” It’s not really surprising that, as women are more frequently out in their swimsuits, they begin considering enhancing their figures.
One way in which many L.A. natives and visitors are enhancing their appearances is through breast augmentation. Los Angeles is known as a hub for some of the best cosmetic and plastic surgeons and it attracts many potential patients for that reason. Dr. Stevens frequently sees patients from around the country and even from abroad who are looking for summer enhancement.
“Many women choose to come to L.A. from out of town because it allows them to travel and explore Los Angeles during the summer,” says Dr. Stevens. “It’s exciting for them because they are getting the figure they’ve always wanted and getting to vacation in such an interesting and lively city as Los Angeles. After surgery, one of the most satisfying aspects of surgery for them is being out there on the beach, feeling confident in their swimsuits. ”
Dr. Stevens adds that, for his patients in Los Angeles, breast implants that feel and look natural are a top priority. For these patients, Dr. Stevens usually recommends gummy bear breast implants – a new type of cohesive silicone gel implant that many of Dr. Steven’s patients say feels more like natural breast tissue. “After my patients feel the difference between saline and silicone implants, many of them choose silicone. There are advantages to both silicone and saline, but for achieving a more natural breast feel, silicone is usually the number-one choice.”
Many breast augmentation patients choose to combine their surgery with breast lift in Los Angeles to restore the look and feel of the breasts. Mothers, especially, like to combine a breast lift with augmentation because they lost volume after pregnancy or breast feeding. In some cases, Dr. Stevens performs his signature Laser Bra breast lift, a special breast lift technique that provides for long-lasting support for the breast after surgery.
“The Laser Bra has helped many women improve the appearance of their sagging or deflated-looking breasts,” Dr. Stevens explains. “I find that many of my patients want this kind of restoration during the summer so they can enjoy their new, perkier, and fuller breasts while the sun is still high and the water is cool. It’s simple: summer is the perfect time for achieving and showing off a figure you can feel confident about.”
