Get Your Body Bikini Ready!


In Southern California we are fortunate to have beautiful weather all year long, but that does not make the beach season any less exciting.  There is nothing better than a day at the beach with your friends frolicking in the sand and surf. That is of course unless you are hidden under an oversized cover-up, or even worse being lazy on the couch at home for fear of being seen in a bathing suit.  No matter your age, worrying about how you look in a bathing suit is one of the biggest concerns surrounding the summer season. Don’t be left out of the beach fun, if your body woes are holding you back we can help! Options such as liposuction and tummy tuck can help you achieve the flatter tummy or slimmer look you desire. But there is no doubt that Breast Augmentation tops the wish list for those hoping to look hot in a bikini this summer.  And great news for those wishers, there is now another great option for those interested in Breast Implants!




Breast Augmentation with Saline or Silicone Implants has been

the most popular plastic surgery performed in the US for many years. Now there is another option on the market for those seeking an even more natural look. Last year, the FDA approved the Cohesive Gel Implant, commonly referred to as the “Gummy Bear” implant. Gummy bear implants are a specific type of silicone gel implant that is solid yet pliable, even on the inside. Plastic surgeons have coined the term “gummy bear” as a way to explain the consistency of cohesive gel implants to their patients. In the rare case that an implant ruptures the gel doesn’t leak at all, one of the main benefits of the gummy bear implant over saline and traditional silicone gel. Another benefit of cohesive gel implants is that most patients find them to look and feel more natural. Many women who’ve previously undergone a breast implant surgery with saline are going back to replace their original implants with gummy bear implants.


Beverly Hills Physicians board certified doctors are some of the first in the United States to offer this exciting new option. Whether this would be your first surgery or you are interested in replacing what you have, be sure to schedule a free consultation and decide which option is best for you! We are very excited to offer this new alternative, but our doctors may still recommend saline or silicone if they think they are a better fit for you.

No matter what would make you feel hot this summer now is the time to make the change! You can be hitting the beach in your new body before you know it!


Case Highlight

Breast Augmentation with Cohesive Gel Implants by Dr. Richard Hodnett


Our patient is a 5ft 9, 140 lb female who presented with slightly uneven breasts and uneven inframammary folds. The patient’s chest and hips are uneven due to scoliosis (mild), and she had fat in the pectoral folds (normally referred to as tail of the breast). She chose a 430 cc cohesive gel implant often referred to as gummy bear implants.




Patient Testimonial:


A big THANK YOU to Dr. Hodnett for the excellent work! All of my life I always wanted to add a little “umph” to my chest. I am so happy to say that Dr. Hodnett gave me exactly what I was looking for. My procedure included a silicone breast augmentation, using the new and improved “gummy bear implant” along with some liposuction to my Pectoral Folds.

When first approaching Beverly Hills Physicians, I was greeted by 3 beautiful, smiling faces. The THOUSAND OAKS office was so professional and sweet. The girls couldn’t have made my experience any better. I am so completely satisfied with my results, the facility, the Doctor, and the overall experience. If you are interested in moving forward with a breast augmentation, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Hodnett!

-Happy Patient : )

What is your background?

I am a Southern California native. I grew up in Orange County with a father that was an innovative General Surgeon in Hunington Beach and a mother who is a teacher.  I come from a family of surgeons that includes my father and my three brothers who are all surgeons. So you could say it is in my blood. I obtained my medical degree in 1994 from Case Western Reserve Univeristy in Cleveland and I completed my Plastic Surgery and General Residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center in 2000. I can proudly say that I am a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. On a personal level, I have been happily married for 15 years and I have three sons, aged 13, 10, and 7.


Why did you choose Plastic Surgery?

Plastic Surgery for me, is the most exciting and innovative field in all of medicine. I operate on healthy patients of all ages, and perform both cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. I really love helping patients feel more confident in their own skin.  I had a cosmetic procedure myself when I was a young man.  I had a rhinoplasty so I know what it means to be a patient. I have been through the stress and the worry of what will I look like, so I come in to being a surgeon from a very knowlegable perspective. I feel it is the only field of medicine that is both an art and a science. I am passionate about my work and am a perfectionist.


Why did you choose to bring your expertise to a multiple doctor/disciplinary practice like BHP?

I chose to join BHP because I know they only work with the best doctors and always put patient needs first. I also share the philosophy that elective surgery is not just for the most affluent, everyone deserves the chance to look and feel their best. I love being part of a practice that helps make plastic surgery a reality for those that desire it.


What do you like to do when you are not in the operating room?

I like to spend my spare time traveling with my family, water sports and snow skiing are our favorite vacation activities. Once my sons are old enough I hope to take many river rafting trips with them. In addition to traveling I also like to play the drums and piano, and I am currently learning how to play the guitar. When I am not operating I like to keep in shape by working out at the gym, swimming and regularly running half marathons. To date, I have completed seven of them and hope to continue to stay healthy and run for the rest of my life. After all, I know that feeling great about myself only makes me even better at helping others achieve their own goals.
