New Year, New Innovations
Breast Augmentation at Heller Plastic Surgery
February, 2015 - Issue #124
Good news! If your 2015 "to do's" include reshaping your body for the better, read on because the newest breast implants on the market can make this year a "Happy New you!"

"Gummy Bears," as they're commonly called, are the newest innovation in augmentation. These natural-looking silicone implants are exceptional, in part, because even if you cut them in half, they maintain their shape. These implants "don't leak in ways previously seen," says Dr. Justin Heller, board-certified plastic surgeon and owner of Heller Plastic Surgery in Valencia.

"I treat every woman as unique. The development of the
implant commonly called 'Gummy Bear' has allowed me to customize breast implants to achieve a NATURAL-LOOKING RESULT in ways never before possible,"
Justin Heller, MD, Heller Plastic Surgery
"Distinctive to the 'Gummy Bear' implants are the shapes available and the ability to create a more natural contour by controlling the way volume is added," says the doctor. "Older implants were circles and 'one size fits all.' The Gummy Bear implants sit on the chest wall to provide a beautiful natural slope. Plus, they're available in literally hundreds of different sizes, so every shape can be ideally accommodated," says Dr. Heller.

"For women who've delayed breast augmentation because they were worried that the result would look 'fake,' this new product is going to get them off the fence. Women are now able to have the naturally-voluptuous-looking breasts they've dreamed of," says the surgeon.

Many of Dr. Heller's patients are opting for "Gummy Bears" paired with his innovative technique of an "internal lift." Most women don't need a major lift, which is associated with much more scarring and recovery time. "I lift internally allowing the breast to rise up without additional external scars," he explains.

When it comes to a breast augmentation surgery most women will walk out of the treatment area on her own and may even feel up to going out to dinner that night. Many patients schedule their surgeries on a Friday and are back to work on Monday.
Heller Plastic Surgery is located in the Atrium Building next to City Hall in Valencia. The comfortable, well-appointed office is now accepting patients and scheduling complimentary consultations. This month, call for special reduced pricing on products like Botox® Cosmetic, Latisse®, dermal fillers and surgical procedures. 661-233-4949

Ask Dr. Heller
QUESTION: I had a baby nine months ago. Since then, I've lost 35 pounds, which is good, but my breasts are now sagging. I've heard the term "mommy makeover." What procedures are involved with this type of surgery and when would be a good time to have one?

"Mommy makeovers" usually address the breasts and abdomen. The timing is less about the calendar and more about where you're at when it comes to your weight and nursing status. You'll want to wait until you're entirely done breastfeeding so that you can really evaluate your breast deflation and be near a stable goal weight. Most mothers will want a breast lift, which may require an implant to replace lost volume. And, to make moms feel more "bikini ready," a tummy tuck can tighten the muscles that stretched with pregnancy thereby redefining the waistline and removing extra sagging skin.
