Manhattan Beach Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation surgically enhances the size and shape of your breasts with breast implants or fat grafting. Far more that simply increasing your breast size, breast augmentation balances your body proportion with your ideals in mind. Many Manhattan Beach women decide to get breast augmentation to restore volume after having children, losing weight, or to actualize their ideal breast size. Changing the size and shape of your breasts should:
- Occur after your breasts have fully developed.
- Align with your perception of beauty.
- Fit your frame, stature, and breast anatomy.
- Look and feel as natural as possible.
Dr. Granzow takes time to understand your aesthetic to develop a plan for breast augmentation surgery and recovery that captures your ideal. He is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with over ten years of substantial surgical experience and training.
A New Approach to Breast Augmentation
Traditionally associated with significantly increasing breast size, breast augmentation has evolved as a way for women to take control of their appearance. There is no fixed standard or beauty for all patients. Each woman has a different definition of beauty that can encompass significantly larger breasts or a modest size increase for more body confidence.
Dr. Granzow supports his Manhattan Beach patients’ choices with advice and options that will reflect their ideal self image. During an initial consultation Dr. Granzow will:
- Discuss procedures that can best achieve your ideal size, shape, and feel.
- Support your choices and select implants or fat grafting that meet your needs.
- Dispel any misperceptions you may have about breast augmentation surgery.
Dr. Granzow’s aesthetic approach integrates the latest technologies and developments in breast augmentation to provide you with choices that enhance your comfort and results.
Types of Implants
The quality of breast implants has dramatically improved in the past few decades with both silicone and saline implants surpassing standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To gain FDA approval breast implants have passed rigorous testing as well as reviews by an independent panel of physicians to ensure safety.
Using only FDA-approved implants, Dr. Granzow will match your preferences for size and shape with an implant that looks and feels natural. Dr. Granzow has experience with all U.S. approved manufacturers, including the Sientra implants, which may be used only by Board Certified/Eligible Plastic Surgeons. During a consultation he will also evaluate body type and breast anatomy to help you choose the right type, size, and shape for your new implants.
For patients who want a modest size increase, usually one-cup size or less, fat grafting is an excellent option that redistributes unwanted fat to your breast. A gentle liposuction will carefully harvest fat from problem areas to inject into your breasts. This technique is a natural alternative to implants with the additional benefit of removing unwanted fat deposits elsewhere in the body.

With Mommy Makeover
After childbearing, many women’s breasts grow larger and lose volume when breastfeeding has ended. Dr. Granzow helps moms regain their body confidence by adapting individualized mommy makeovers that address your unique problems. Breast augmentation can be combined with procedures such as tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast lift to bring back your pre-pregnancy body.
