The goal of breast augmentation is to increase breast volume, improve breast shape or to correct breast asymmetry. Although it’s one of the most common cosmetic procedures, it can be anxiety-provoking due to the sheer number of choices available such as implant size, shape, and position.
PERK is uncompromising in fully educating each patient about implant safety and maintenance. Using precise body measurements and breast analysis, Dr. Lee will meticulously tailor her technique to your body and help you select the best fitting implant and procedure.
Our Los Angeles breast augmentation with implants is ideal for a patient who:
Most patients are sore for the first week. Dr. Lee and her team and PERK will closely monitor you after surgery and optimize your recovery with tailored bras, lymphatic massage, lasers for bruising, guided meditations, nutritional support and postsurgical exercise.
The best implant for you is the one that compliments your body.
Every woman should have the freedom to change their breast size and shape. However, implant choice should be guided by your body measurements and tissue mechanics. Most long-term complications with breast implants such as rippling and poor shape are due to wrong implant choice at the first operation. Dr. Lee’s experience with revision breast surgery and fixing long-term implant complications instilled in her the belief that meticulous implant choice guided by your body measurements is critical to long-term breast augmentation success.

My surgery went smoothly and I am SO happy with the results!”
A beautiful breast is a healthy breast. Due to Dr. Lee’s extensive background in breast reconstruction after breast cancer, she is committed breast health and safety. Although breast implants are one of the most common medical devices, it’s important to remember that implants are still man-made devices and require maintenance and monitoring.
Breast implant illness is a term used by women to describe a group of symptoms ranging from fatigue, brain fog, rashes and more. These symptoms are attributed to the body’s reaction to the implant. Today, this is a hotly contested and controversial topic because the vast majority of large-scale scientific studies show that breast implants are safe. However, two recent studies show a possible connection between silicone breast implants and autoimmune diseases. Currently, the consensus from the FDA and the scientific community is that breast implants are safe devices.
However, at PERK we understand that breast implants are not tolerated by everyone, and we take problems with breast implants very seriously. Safety will always come first. Dr. Lee is committed to participate in the breast implant safety research in order to provide you with the most scientifically-sound and up-to-date evidence. PERK Plastic Surgery will be here every step of the way to help you navigate through problems with breast implants if they were to arise.
