Email this Page

Women who choose breast augmentation in Los Angeles are fortunate to have access to one of the nation’s pioneering practices in the area of breast enhancement. At Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, patients benefit from improved implant options and unparalleled breast enhancement experience from surgeons who are recognized as authorities in the field.

The Inside Track on Breast Implant Technology

Dr. Grant Stevens, Medical Director of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates in Los Angeles, was part of an elite group of plastic surgeons chosen to participate in the clinical trials which culminated in the first FDA approved fifth-generation silicone implants. Sientra®’s form-stable cohesive gel implant is the original “gummy bear breast implant,” and is now available through board-certified plastic surgeons thanks to years of clinical study by Dr. Stevens and his peers.

In addition, Dr. Stevens and Dr. Macias are 2 of a select group of board-certified plastic surgeons in the United States who are authorized to offer Mentor’s CPG form-stable breast implants – another gummy bear option – to patients who qualify for the clinical trials. The implant manufacturers choose their investigators with great care. You can choose Dr. Stevens or Dr. Macias with confidence, knowing they will treat you with great care.

By selecting Dr. Stevens and Dr. Macias as clinical investigators, implant manufacturers have placed their reputation in the surgeons’ hands. They know the physicians will evaluate gummy bear implant candidates carefully, perform surgery that yields a beautiful outcome and follow up with patients appropriately.

Recognized Experts in Breast Enhancement

Dr. Stevens, Dr. Macias and their colleagues publish more research studies than any other plastic surgery practice in the country, and they share knowledge in other ways as well. They have studied, presented findings and chaired symposia on topics such as:

  • gummy bear breast implants
  • laser-assisted breast surgery
  • saline implant deflation rates
  • breast implant removal
  • diseases of the breast
  • advances in breast reconstruction
  • secondary breast augmentation
  • combined augmentation and lift

Dr. Stevens’ expertise with silicone breast implants, including the new gummy bears, is recognized by his peers. In fact, he was chosen to give presentations on the topic to other board-certified plastic surgeons in 2007 and 2012 at conferences for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Plastic Surgery Societies: Membership Matters

Dr. Stevens and Dr. Macias are both board-certified plastic surgeons and members of the elite American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In addition, Dr. Stevens is also a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Each of these prominent organizations requires members to be accomplished plastic surgeons committed to the highest standards and quality care.
