Dr. Ronald Schuster Provides Natural Breast Implants to Patients

Women in Baltimore and all across the country are looking for a natural look and feel when it comes to cosmetic surgery. They want breast implants that aren’t too big or disproportionate to their body, but still provide a boost of confidence and femininity. Dr. Ronald Schuster understands his client base and exactly how to provide the natural breast implant look and feel they are going for. Get to know him and why he loves to recommend the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant to his patients. 

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your practice.

“I’m Dr. Ronald Schuster. I’m a board-certified plastic surgeon with a private practice in Baltimore, Maryland, where I have been since I began back in 1991. I perform a lot of breast surgery—it has been a major part of my practice for all these years. I have patients that I treat locally, regionally, and sometimes from out of state. I perform all types of breast surgery—breast augmentation, breast enhancement, breast lift, breast reduction, you name it, I can do it with the breast. I like to present all the different options to my patients, and I think they respect me for that. I try to give a very honest opinion as far as what can be helped and what can’t be helped. Women have different priorities and I help them sort it all out. I think they appreciate that.”

What is the main reason women choose your practice?

“I think women choose me as their surgeon because of my reputation of honesty and being able to deliver great surgical results. They know that when they come to my office, I’m not going to just be selling them on a particular procedure of the month or the year. I listen to what their concerns are and I take them very seriously. I examine them and tell them an honest opinion of what I see and what it would take to get them to their goals.”

What is the process of a breast implant consultation like?

“So breast augmentation and breast enhancement consultations take a long time in my practice because there are so many different options. I need to listen to the woman’s goals and concerns, then help them pick from the many options that might be available. So to do that, for example, I need to go through the different implants that are available to them. Some women have done the research beforehand and some of them haven’t. I let them feel the implants during the consultation, and we will try the implants on to give them an idea of size. I stress during the consultation what it will take to get them to the appearance that they want to get to. I encourage them to bring in photographs of models or celebrities, or naked photographs, and we look at my website that has photographs of women both before and after surgery. And it’s communication. I stress communication. I need to understand what they’re looking for and then I can help them to get there.”

What types of breast implants do you offer? 

Now there’s more implants than ever that are available. There’s also been dramatic improvement in implant technology, which benefits the woman. So traditionally there’s been the unstructured saline implant, silicone gel implants, and the newest member of the group which is the IDEAL IMPLANT structured implant. I’m excited to be able to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT.  I’ve used them since inception and I’ve been extremely happy with them. My patients have loved them. I’ve been extremely happy with them. However, I will honestly say, they’re not for everyone. So they have a certain role in my practice, but I would say the vast majority of women can use the IDEAL IMPLANT and get great results.”

Have most of your patients heard about the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“Women that come to my practice for breast augmentation sometimes have done a lot of research in their choices of what they want specifically with respect to the type of implant, whether it’s unstructured saline, silicone gel, or the IDEAL structured implant. More and more, as women are learning about the IDEAL IMPLANT, they are coming in specifically asking for the IDEAL IMPLANT, which is wonderful news.”

What’s been your experience with the IDEAL IMPLANT and do you recommend it?

“It is different from both the traditional, unstructured saline implant and the silicone gel implant, because it is a structured implant. The reason why it was invented is because they tried to join the benefits of both the unstructured saline implant and the silicone gel implant into a single type of implant.

“The benefits of a silicone gel implant is that by and large, most patients and surgeons consider this silicone gel implant to be the softest, most breast-like feel. However, it comes with a little bit of a drawback because silicone gel does not dissolve. When silicone gel breaks, the gel pretty much stays inside the breast, but women do not know that it has broken. Now you can always get an MRI or an ultrasound to find out about it, but it’s still  a bit unsettling for many, many women.

“The unstructured saline implant avoids that whole problem because when it breaks, the saline will leak out of the implant and be harmlessly absorbed by the body. So it’s very safe. The next day the woman wakes up and notices one breast is smaller. Even though it’s not an unsafe, unhealthy situation, it’s still unsettling to them.

“The IDEAL IMPLANT joins the good parts about both implants. Because it is a structured implant, it has sort of an implant inside of an implant, with two separate compartments that are separated by shells. And so it is very unlikely that both of these compartments are going to break at the same time. Therefore, if only one breaks at a time, the saline leaks out, it doesn’t make you sick and the implant gets a little smaller, but it doesn’t flatten out like a flat tire. It sort of sends a little bit of a signal to the woman like, ‘oh, something’s going on. I better see my doctor,’ but she doesn’t have to freak out.

“In addition, The IDEAL IMPLANT feels very close, if not identical to, the silicone gel. So it combines the feel of silicone gel with the safety profile of an unstructured saline implant, without having to worry about a broken silicone implant in your body and not know about it.”

How would you compare replacing an IDEAL IMPLANT rupture with replacing a silicone gel implant rupture?

“Anything that’s man made, whether it’s a heart valve, a knee replacement, or a breast implant, is going to wear out eventually. Fortunately the implants today are made to last a long time, whether it’s 10, 20, or 30 years. If it’s not broken, you don’t have to fix it. However, when implants do break, there’s a big difference between a broken silicone gel implant and a broken IDEAL structured implant. When a silicone gel implant breaks, the silicone gel on the inside can come out of the implant and sort of lubricate the inside of the breast implant capsule. Usually it’s really not much of a problem and it just takes a little bit of experienced work to be able to get that silicone gel out.

“With the IDEAL structured implant, there is no silicone gel, so there is no chance of the silicone gel being present or getting inside the capsule or even getting outside of that scar tissue capsule. So in general, replacement of ruptured IDEAL IMPLANTs is a bit easier than replacement of silicone gel implants.”

Why were you first attracted to the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“I’ve been using IDEAL IMPLANTs since they first became commercially available. I have always been looking for a better breast implant. I always want the best thing for my patients. So when I heard about the IDEAL IMPLANT, I was really intrigued by it because many women like the feel of the silicone gel implant, but they are nervous about the idea of something possibly being broken in their body.

“I’ve been in practice long enough to have helped women with problems that they had with early generation silicone gel implants, where the silicone gel was causing lumps and cysts and things that shouldn’t go on. Fortunately, silicone gel has evolved and we see less of those problems, but that doesn’t mean it has replaced those problems. Women also don’t necessarily like the results of traditional, unstructured saline implants because there’s significant rippling. For many women, it’s not a great solution.

“So the IDEAL IMPLANT combines the benefits of both implants. It really does feel like a silicone gel implant and it does not have the ripples and the issues associated with the traditional, unstructured saline implant. So I have been using them and I’m very happy. It’s not for everyone. I’m very honest with a woman as far as what it will do and what it won’t do and how it may or may not achieve their aesthetic goals and whether or not they need to change their priorities as far as what they are really trying to achieve.”

Have you seen lower complication rates from using the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“Anytime I speak with a woman about any type of surgery, especially with breast augmentation and breast implant surgery, we always have to talk about risks and complications of surgery. There are the usual complications or risks of surgery with any kind of surgery—bleeding, infection, scars, numbness, those kinds of things. But implants carry specific risks with them also. There’s the rupture or the breakage, the deflation rate of the implant. And then there’s also a reaction that can occur to the scar tissue that forms around the implant. We call this scar tissue that forms around the implant, a capsule. In most women that capsule stays soft and everything is fine. However, in a small percentage of women that scar tissue capsule around the implant shrinks, and that’s called capsule contracture, and all implants have these risks associated with them. So I have an honest discussion about those risks.

“In my particular experience, I have a very, very good track record of guaranteeing very, very few of these capsular contractures. However, it’s still possible. So I’m always interested in the rates that the companies tell us and how they are performing across the country and across the world. I have been using the IDEAL IMPLANT since its beginning. I was very comfortable using the implant with their recognized risks because it fit right in line with the other manufacturers. Since using them for the past five years, I’ve been delighted to find out that they are actually performing better than the other manufacturers of both traditional, unstructured saline implants, as well as the silicone gel implants. I think that their track record now and their data proves that it is a safe implant and is performing as well, if not better, than the other currently available implants.”

Have you noticed a certain type of patient requesting the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“Honestly, I can’t really tell. There’s definitely more women coming in that have heard about the IDEAL IMPLANT and specifically want it because they’ve done their research. I think women coming in that already know about the implant know that what attracts them to the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it does not have silicone gel but that it feels like silicone gel.”

Anything else you’d like to mention about your practice?

“I hope I’ve been able to answer some of your questions and help you to make the best decisions you can. I invite you to come visit me in my office. It’s very private. Everything is very, very confidential and we pride ourselves in giving a very personal experience. I think you’d love it. So come on down.”

How Much is a Breast Augmentation at Regional Plastic Surgery Center

How much is a breast augmentation? There are many factors to consider before undergoing breast surgery, and making sure you know your out-of-pocket expenses is one of them. It’s to be expected that the overall cost would not be the same from one surgery center to the next, but did you know that every type of breast implant also varies in price. Furthermore, it is important to know potential follow-up care and the likelihood of post-operative complications when calculating the long-term expenses associated with breast implants. Are you ready to learn more about the cost of breast implants? The plastic surgeons at Regional Plastic Surgery Center have answers to all your questions.

A Team that Cares

The team at Regional Plastic Surgery Center understands that a breast augmentation is a big investment. They realize that many women save up for years to afford breast implants, and therefore, want to make an informed decision about this life-changing venture. Their plastic surgeons take the time to listen to the concerns of their patients and address any fears or hesitations that come along with undergoing surgery. All patients are given individualized attention along with a personalized treatment plan designed to match their specific needs and desires.

IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeons

At Regional Plastic Surgery Center, they also value patient education and work hard to help their patients learn about the different breast implant options available. They strive to remain up-to-date on the latest products and procedures in the plastic surgery industry to be able to offer the most advanced care to their patients. Most recently, their plastic surgeons received recognition as Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeons for their extensive work and experience with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants

The Cost of IDEAL IMPLANTS

How much is a breast augmentation is a frequently asked question regarding IDEAL IMPLANTS. A major cost-saving benefit of choosing IDEAL IMPLANTS is that they come with a Protection Plan as outlined on their website:

“When you choose the IDEAL IMPLANT®, you not only enjoy the beautiful look and feel you are looking for and the peace of mind of only saline inside—you’re also automatically enrolled at no cost in the Basic Protection Plan provided by Ideal Implant Incorporated. Financial assistance helps with the uninsured out-of-pocket costs of surgery for deflation for 10 years.”

Patients can also select an optional Premium Protection Plan, but “both plans provide, for free, an IDEAL IMPLANT® replacement during lifetime for deflation and first 10 years for capsular contracture.”

An Additional Advantage

When patients want to know how much is a breast augmentation, they should also consider what long-term care is suggested for each type of breast implant. IDEAL IMPLANTS require no expensive MRIs or specialized ultrasounds to detect rupture. As described on the IDEAL IMPLANT website:

“When intact, silicone gel implants are FDA approved and safe. But when they rupture, the FDA states the ‘implant and any gel should be removed.’ Yet silicone gel ruptures are silent, meaning they can only be detected by an MRI, so the FDA recommends that women have an MRI scan every other year to find out if their implants have ruptured.”

How the Breast Augmentation Size Chart Works

Breast implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. This versatility allows women to achieve results tailored to their exact desires and needs. While some women pursue a breast augmentation to only increase volume, others may need to correct uneven breast size or breast position. That’s the beauty of the breast augmentation size chart with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. No matter the reason for surgery, women can choose for themselves the proportions of their breast implants. At North Coast Plastic Surgery, Dr. Gregory Park can help you determine the right size of breast implants to match your goals.

A Consultation with Dr. Gregory Park

Deciding to undergo breast surgery is a big decision, and an important component of that decision is selecting your breast implant size. Dr. Park has discovered a lot of women know they want to change their appearance, but are often unsure by just how much. To help in that decision, he spends one-on-one time with each of his patients to get to know their preferences and understand what they hope to accomplish with a breast augmentation. His goal is to have women feel confident and secure in their choice to receive breast implants. If you have questions or concerns, he takes the time to address those and put your mind at ease.

Breast Augmentation Size Chart Versus Breast Implant Options

Dr. Park also works hard to educate his patients about their breast implant options. Size alone does not determine how breast implants look on a woman. In fact, the type of breast implant has a huge impact on a woman’s results. Dr. Park offers the very latest in implant technology to ensure his patients find the right kind of implant to meet their expectations. There are three types of breast implants – silicone gel, unstructured saline implants, and structured IDEAL IMPLANTS. The breast augmentation size chart varies based upon the different implant options. IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants are unlike any other breast implant available due to their unique design and internal structure that allows a surgeon to adjust the volume according to the desires of the patient.

Dr. Park Offers IDEAL IMPLANTS

IDEAL IMPLANTS are only offered to an exclusive network of board-certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Park was recently named an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon for his extensive experience and additional expertise with IDEAL IMPLANTS. Furthermore, as outlined on the North Coast Plastic Surgery website

“Dr. Gregory Park is a double boarded surgeon with over 20 years of experience as a physician and surgeon. Dr. Park is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and performs a full range of cosmetic surgical and non-surgical procedures . . . He is Nationally recognized as one of the Top 100 RealSelf Plastic Surgeons for his contribution, commitment, and expertise in cosmetic surgery and aesthetic treatments. Dr. Park also maintains a 5 out 5 star rating on RealSelf reviews for patient satisfaction.”

Before opening his private practice, Dr. Park served in the U.S. Air Force providing medical and surgical care for pilots and their families, as well as life-saving treatment for civilians and wounded soldiers. When stationed in Japan, he was Chief of Otolaryngology providing ENT and facial plastic surgical services to both Yokota and Misawa Air Bases. He was later appointed Chief of Plastic Surgery at Wright Patterson AFB when on tour in Ohio. Then when deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, he used his trauma and reconstructive surgical skills to provide life-changing surgeries to those with complex battlefield injuries, including humanitarian surgeries for the Afghan people. Once home from Afghanistan, Dr. Park served as the Chief of Plastic Surgery at Nellis AFB in Nevada until retiring after 24 years of service.

Choosing the Right Breast Implant Brand for You

With so many options of breast implant brands on the market, it is hard to know which one is best and right for you and your goals. What if you pick the wrong one and it doesn’t give you the look or feel that you desired? The friendly staff and board-certified plastic surgeons at  The Park Clinic in Mobile, Alabama, are there to help patients feel confident in their choice of breast implant. 

The Park Clinic specializes in all kinds of plastic surgery, including cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. Women choose The Park Clinic as their top choice for two primary reasons. First, both of their surgeons are board-certified plastic surgeons that underwent rigorous training. Second, both surgeons trained at one of the best programs in the country, where they practiced all different types of reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries. The experiences brought to the table by both Dr. Christopher Park and Dr. Ryan Rebowe allows them to apply a unique approach to every patient and provide them with what is best for them.

Breast Implant Consultations

Dr. Christopher Park

It is common for women to study and research breast implant brands, surgeons, reviews, and the recovery process before moving forward with a breast augmentation. After a quick Google search, it is no surprise that so many women end up at The Park Clinic after reading the patient reviews. When you arrive for your consultation, you will be greeted by the friendly staff. The surgeons will answer any questions that you may have, learn about your goals, and explain their recommendations. It can be difficult to articulate exactly what you are looking for in the end result of your breast augmentation. Dr. Rebowe and Dr. Park have many women bring in pictures of breast augmentations that they like, which helps give them an idea of what you are hoping for in your breast augmentation. 

Once you have established your goals, the doctors move on to tissue based planning. This means that the doctors utilize the patient’s measurements to determine the exact implant and breast implant brand that will make her happy. “It is about the characteristics of her breast and the soft tissue measurements that I will take in clinic, and then finding an implant that will fit those soft tissue characteristics, based on her goals. It’s not a random guess, it’s not picking a size, or a number of CCs, or a cup size. It is about giving women the exact look that they want. It may involve just implants, it may involve implants and a lift, maybe even some fat grafting on top of implants, or not even utilizing implants at all,” said Dr. Rebowe. Tissue based planning is completely customizable, and allows women to achieve their exact goal. 

Breast Implant Choices

Dr. Rebowe says the most common question that he gets from women desiring a breast augmentation is “what is the best implant?” Everyone wants to know what the best implant is, but the truth is that each implant offers its own unique benefits. At the Park Clinic, the Premier Surgeons are happy to offer every major manufacturer of breast implant brands, including the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, Allergan, Mentor, and Sientra. 

Silicone gel implants are popular among women because they have a more natural look and feel than unstructured saline implants. However, in the unlikely event of a rupture in a silicone implant, an MRI or ultrasound scan could be needed to detect it, so it is called a “silent rupture.” With unstructured saline implants, while they may not have the natural look and feel of silicone, the saline (a harmless solution of salt and water) can be easily and readily absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture and detected by looking at the breast. This is a characteristic that many women find comforting. 

The IDEAL IMPLANT encompasses the benefits of the silicone and the unstructured saline implants, while eliminating the compromises. It is unique in the sense that it has multiple shells within the structure of the implant that are filled only with saline. This structured implant allows women to achieve the safety of saline-filled implants, with the natural look and feel of silicone. “The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant is marrying the two options. We are seeing that it is a top choice of breast implant brands among women,” said Dr. Rebowe. 

Breast Implant Recovery

Every patient wants to know the recovery time of a breast augmentation. Breast augmentations are outpatient surgeries that usually take between one and two hours. Patients are most often released the same day, though some choose to stay overnight. Women are generally able to return to normal activity within two days following the procedure. Heavy lifting and strenuous activities should be avoided for a longer period of time. The Premier surgeons at the Park Clinic will give each patient specific instructions about their recovery. 

Why You Should Choose the Park Clinic for Your Breast Augmentation

Dr. Ryan Rebowe

“At the Park Clinic, it is our job to tell a woman what our honest recommendation is. We stay educated and trained in all of the technology of each type of implant and breast implant brands.

Finding the Best Breast Implants in Scottsdale with Dr. Sumer Daiza

When you decide you want to make a positive change to your image what is the first step you should take? For women all around the nation, finding an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon is key to getting the results they want. However, not every surgeon offers all the options available to women wanting a breast enhancement, tummy tuck, liposuction, or other cosmetic procedure. What’s worse, many doctors don’t take the time to get to know their patients and educate them on their options. Women in Scottsdale, Arizona, visit Dr. Sumer Daiza because she not only has the skill and experience needed to get exceptional results, she is invested in the long-term care and success of each patient, starting with patient education. From choosing the best breast implants to deciding the best time to undergo a tummy tuck, Dr. Daiza guides each patient in their journey toward aesthetic enhancement.

Dr. Daiza: Experience and Skill

Dr. Daiza is a Scottsdale native, and graduate of Arizona State University. She earned her medical degree from the University of Arizona, where she was in the top 10% of her class and elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. Dr. Daiza is a double board-certified plastic surgeon, with certifications in General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. For the past 18 years, Dr. Daiza has served the community in and around Scottsdale at her private practice, Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale. 

Your Aesthetic Journey at the Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale

Part of Dr. Daiza’s core philosophy of care is that each patient should receive high quality, safe, and natural looking results. The medical team at The Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale strives to create an environment that makes patients feel comfortable exploring their options, whether they are looking for the best breast implants for their body type or simply wanting a more effective skincare routine. With a wide variety of surgical and non-invasive procedures, patients can find a treatment that works for their body, and their peace of mind. 

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Scottsdale patients experience “boutique style” care with individualized treatment plans rather than “factory style” care that quickly shuffles patients in and out to maximize profits. This is one reason patients keep returning to Dr. Daiza for years after their initial procedure. Realself user AZmama1984 explains how her first experience with Dr. Daiza left her more confident to return in the future, 

“…Dr. Daiza and Sabrina were wonderful to work with and the results have blown me (and my husband!) away. My breasts look better now at 34 than when I got my first set of implants at 18. Definitely coming back to Dr. Daiza for a tummy tuck when my babies are a little more grown!”

Learn About the Best Breast Implant Options Available

Another factor which sets Dr. Daiza’s practice apart is the variety of breast implant options she offers. Breast implants are not one size fits all, and every woman must weigh the benefits and compromises of each implant type before their procedure. In the past, only two types of breast implants were available: unstructured saline and silicone gel. Where unstructured saline tends to ripple and feel unnatural, silicone gel provides stability and softness. However, women used to weigh the natural looking results of silicone gel with the risk of silent rupture. “Thanks to advancements in the field of implants,” says Dr. Daiza, “it works a bit differently now.”

The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant combines natural looking results with instant rupture detection. As Dr. Daiza explains, “It’s filled with saline, but it has multiple layers of silicone shells called baffles, which allows the saline to be distributed within the shells. So it feels and acts and behaves like a silicone gel implant.” Because the implant is filled with saline, there is instant rupture detection and the saline is naturally absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture.

Because of Dr. Daiza’s commitment to offer the best breast implants for every patient she became one of the first plastic surgeons in the area to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. Now, because of her extensive experience with the IDEAL IMPLANT, Dr. Daiza has been named an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon. IDEAL IMPLANT is proud to offer their breast implants through such a distinguished, skilled, and well-loved surgeon.

Visiting Dr. Daiza in Scottsdale

Are you ready to start your journey toward aesthetic enhancement, but not sure where to start? Dr. Daiza and her staff invite you to a consultation to discuss your goals, and discover which procedures will help you achieve them. In addition to breast augmentation, Dr. Daiza offers the following surgical procedures:

If you are looking for the best breast implants, but also want to take care of other issues such as abdominal separation and excess skin, Dr. Daiza can perform a combination procedure. The popular Mommy Makeover helps women to feel their best after pregnancy has taken a toll on their bodies. This procedure is tailored to fit each patient’s specific needs, but typically includes a combination of breast augmentation, breast lift, and tummy tuck. 

Not ready for surgery? Dr. Daiza offers non-invasive procedures for patients who want aesthetic enhancement but don’t want or need surgery. Treatments include injections like Botox and Dysport, dermal fillers, restorative skincare products, and Geneveve™ Vaginal Rejuvenation.

Breast Implant Shapes and Your Plastic Surgery Options in Mechanicsburg, PA

Plastic surgery provides women the opportunity to shed insecurities and live without worrying about how they look. But before you take the plunge and schedule your cosmetic procedure you must find a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon who offers the options you are looking for. Women in central Pennsylvania who are looking for options like different breast implant shapes can visit Dr. Richard de Ramón at de Ramón Plastic Surgery Institute. We recently sat down with Dr. de Ramón to learn more about the options he provides.

Tell us about yourself and your practice?

“I’ve been in practice for 20 years. I started in 2000 and we’re in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. I have always wanted to have a solo practice because it gives me more control and it gives me the opportunity to make sure that patients are taken care of the way that I want them to be taken care of. A lot of my practice is breast and it’s a combination of breast augmentation, breast lift, cosmetic breast, and then breast reductions and some breast reconstruction. 

“There’s a lot of things I enjoy about it. There’s immediate satisfaction because you see the results immediately of your work. It allows some expression of artistic abilities, but really the satisfaction that I get out of it is from seeing the patient’s response to it. It gives them a lot of confidence and it just changes how they see themselves.”

What can a new patient expect at their first consultation?

“When people call my office for a breast augmentation consult, they typically are transferred to my patient care coordinator. I have a specially-trained staff member who deals with all the cosmetic patients. That way there’s good continuity of care. There’s not multiple different folks in the office taking care of them. We typically set up the initial consults to take about 45 minutes to an hour.

“At that consultation, I will have the opportunity to find out what the motivation is and find out what they’re looking for. If it’s reasonable, if they’re a good candidate, if I can deliver what they’re looking for, I make sure that they have realistic expectations about what can be done. They’re screening me: am I the right surgeon for them? I’m screening them: are they really a good candidate for surgery? Then at that time after I examine them, I will talk to them about a lot of the decisions that women have to make when it comes to breast augmentation.”

Women have a lot of decisions to make about their breast augmentation such as which breast implant shape and size they want, and where the implant is placed. Do you present these options for your patient so they can make an educated choice?

“I actually have a little list on my phone of all the things that I like to talk about because I am the kind of person that always wants to know all the options before I make a decision. So I approach breast augmentation like that. We talk about the position of the implant. Is it going to be above the muscle or below the muscle? Are they a candidate for either? What are the pros and cons of those decisions? 

“We then go on and talk about the incisional options. We talk about some of the more common reasons for reoperation. I like patients to know the rates of these problems with the different implants. 

“In addition to those other items that I mentioned, I also like to talk about the implant warranties up front, and each company has their own warranty. They don’t have to know it that well, but they have to understand what the different options are, and then they get it in writing so they can refer to it. 

There are certainly some doctors out there who will examine a patient and they’ll just say, ‘Well, based on my examination, this is what I recommend.’ They do not really tell them any of the options. I don’t like that. I like them to make their own decision.”

You offer a wide variety of breast implant options. Can you describe the breast implant shapes and types you discuss during a consultation?

“We start that off by talking about the various types of implants that are available. I talk about unstructured saline implants, I talk about silicone gel implants, and then I talk about the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. I talk about the pros and cons of each of those. That leads into a very natural discussion about FDA recommendations for silicone gel, for monitoring with MRIs or ultrasound. It’s not mandatory, but it’s a recommendation. I like patients to see the implants, to feel the implants.

“For people under 22, they more frequently will do saline implants. So the structured IDEAL IMPLANT, I think, is a much better option than the unstructured saline implant . . . I lay it out for patients and they can choose what they think is best for them.

“[In terms of breast implant shapes] I’ll actually almost universally use round implants. I don’t really like the anatomic implants for augmentation, but I review them and I show them why I don’t like them. We also talk about smooth and textured implants and why textured implants even evolved.”

You recently became an IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeon. What drew you to start using this implant?

“What I like about the IDEAL IMPLANT is I really do think that it feels and acts much more like a silicone gel implant than the unstructured saline implant does. When patients feel it, it’s really a striking difference in how they feel. I’ve had many patients where, when I examine them, it’s really hard to tell what kind of implant they even have. So, what attracted me to the IDEAL IMPLANT was the feel, but then, technically speaking, the very low capsular contracture rate, and the very low deflation rate. I think those are both great  things. The warranty is part of the picture here too. I think they have a nice warranty.”

What do you have to say to women considering breast implants, but are unsure what breast implant shapes, sizes, or placements to choose?

“Overall, I think women want to have a lot of options. I’m excited that we have now a third breast implant option for women to explore and to choose. I’m excited to offer this as an option. Really, I’m here just to educate women about all their options and then to execute the procedure as best as it can be executed so they end up with a good result and can move on.”

The IDEAL IMPLANT® vs. Silicone Breast Implants

At the Barber Center for Plastic Surgery, you’ll be in the trained and skilled hands of a highly qualified board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Byron Barber. With one of the most reputable plastic surgery facilities along the east coast, Dr. Barber strives to provide the latest in surgical and non-surgical procedures designed to help men and women achieve their physical goals. Specializing in procedures for the face, body, and breast, Dr. Barber was recently recognized as an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, a new development in breast augmentation technology. These saline-filled implants have outperformed silicone breast implants time and time again with their unique design and beautiful features. 

The IDEAL IMPLANT: Designed for Peace of Mind

Currently, when a woman goes in for a breast augmentation, she can choose from three different types of implants available on the market today: silicone gel breast implants, unstructured saline implants, and the new structured IDEAL IMPLANT. 

When you look at these implants side-by-side, you’ll probably notice that the silicone gel implants and IDEAL IMPLANT tend to have a similar look and feel; both mimic breast tissue very well. However, there are some benefits and compromises associated with these implants that cannot be observed at first glance. For example, silicone gel implants may look and feel natural, but the sticky, silicone gel inside is not natural to your body. If the implant tears (known as a rupture) that gel can come into contact with your body tissues, leading to complications such as capsular contracture. 

The IDEAL IMPLANT is filled with a sterile saline solution which is just a mixture of salt and water. If an IDEAL IMPLANT ruptures, that solution will simply be absorbed into your body without any adverse side effects. In a 2017 Independent Survey, “Women’s Preferences in Breast Implants,” 91% of women reported that . . . they would prefer saline coming into contact with their tissue in case of rupture over silicone gel, including 73% of women who already had silicone breast implants. 

Along with the safety of saline, the IDEAL IMPLANT also allows you to detect a rupture just by looking in the mirror. This is not the case with silicone gel implants, where ruptures can only be detected with an MRI or an ultrasound. Current recommendations from the FDA state that women with silicone gel breast implants should get an MRI or ultrasound every two-to-three years to check for ruptures. These MRIs are almost never covered by insurance, since breast augmentation is considered a cosmetic surgery.

With both a lower rate of rupture and capsular contracture for primary breast augmentation at 8-years post-operatively when compared to silicone gel-filled implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT gives women the peace of mind they want while also delivering a beautiful shape and result. 

What About Textured Silicone Breast Implants?

You may already know that different breast implants come in varying shapes and sizes, but did you also know there’s a difference between textured and smooth implants? Textured implants tend to have a feel similar to Velcro, while smooth implants are smooth and fluid to the touch. In July 2019, Allergan Corporation voluntarily recalled all textured silicone gel implants due to the increasing evidence that this particular implant made by Allergan is associated with a rare form of cancer called Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. 

Dr. Barber has utilized very few Allergan implant products throughout his career and primarily uses other silicone gel brands. Most of these implants are smooth, not textured, implants. Dr. Barber says, “In addition to these well established brands, the Barber Center is excited to now offer a revolutionary new type of structured breast implant . . . the IDEAL IMPLANT.”  If you choose the IDEAL IMPLANT for your breast augmentation, you’ll notice that it is designed with a smooth surface.

What to Expect at Your Consultation

Dr. Barber says,“I run a very patient-centric office. The patient is always number one in my employees’ mind and in my mind.”

Dr. Barber believes you should be fully informed and educated before making any decisions regarding a cosmetic procedure. When you book a private consultation, Dr. Barber will go over all your options for breast augmentation (silicone breast implants, unstructured saline implants, and the new structured IDEAL IMPLANT) and listen attentively to your individual needs and goals. In order to picture your new breast size, Dr. Barber uses Vectra 3D Imaging technology, which projects a three dimensional simulation showing you what to expect from various implant sizes. When scheduling your procedure, you will receive the ultimate in confidentiality and scheduling flexibility with Dr. Barber’s state-of-the-art surgical facility onsite.

Dr. Barber’s Education and Background

With over 25 years of experience, Dr. Barber is known as one of the most distinguished plastic surgeons in the Greensboro area. A Magna Cum Laude graduate of Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Dr. Barber received his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. Dr. Barber served in the U.S. Navy, spending time at Bethesda Naval Hospital, Walter Reed Army Hospital, and two tours as a ship’s surgeon. He is also a veteran of Desert Storm. Dr. Barber completed his plastic surgery residency at Duke University Medical Center and began private practice in 1990, specializing in aesthetic surgery of the face, breasts and body. 

Dr. Barber has served as president of both the North Carolina Society of Plastic Surgery and the Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. He has been selected as one of “America’s Top Doctors” in the field of plastic surgery by Castle Connolly for the past 9 years. Consumers’ Research Council of America also recognized Dr. Barber as One of America’s Top Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Barber writes a monthly column for Guilford Women Magazine educating the readers in multiple subjects in plastic surgery.

Choose Dr. Barber for Your Cosmetic Surgery

Many women wanting silicone breast implants change their mind once they see all of their options. Whatever you choose, Dr. Barber wants you to feel confident in your personal decision. Patients appreciate Dr. Barber’s honesty and his caring bedside manner throughout their surgical journey. Here’s what one patient had to say:

“. . . I went from a 34B to a 32DD at Victoria Secret and it was the best decision I ever made (I’m 5’8”, BMI 20.4). I had IDEAL 320cc and would recommend IDEAL to anyone who is fit and wants to avoid capsular contracture as well . . . Overall, great experience, great results.”

Get the Best Type of Breast Implants with Dr. Gregg Anigian

It is a big decision to move forward with a breast augmentation. Many women go to multiple consultations before deciding which surgeon is the right choice for them. Dr. Gregg Anigian, MD, of the Dallas area is the number one choice for patients who desire the best type of breast implants, reconstructive surgery, or breast lifts. IDEAL IMPLANT® is proud to have Dr. Anigian as a Premier Surgeon. Premier Surgeons have extensive experience and knowledge in performing IDEAL IMPLANT breast augmentations. Only board-certified plastic surgeons have access to the IDEAL IMPLANT, however, when you choose a Premier Surgeon, you know you are in the best hands. 

About Dr. Gregg Anigian

Dr. Anigian is a Dallas native who is committed to patient excellence, care, safety and individual attention. He has been practicing plastic surgery, specifically breast augmentations, at the Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas since 1991. He has been featured on both local and national television shows as one of the nation’s leading surgeons. D Magazine has ranked Dr. Anigian as one of the area’s top doctors for the last eleven consecutive years. He is best known for giving patients the natural looking results they have always desired through breast surgery with the best type of breast implants. He is a devoted husband and father of three, an avid tennis player, and enjoys traveling. 

Education and Training

Dr. Anigian received his undergraduate training in chemistry at Texas A&M University. He pursued his dream of plastic surgery when he was accepted at Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. He then continued to a five-year residency in general plastic surgery at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. Following his residency, he completed a two year fellowship in plastic surgery from Wright State University. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, is a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and Texas Board of Plastic Surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. 

Feel Confident in Your Decision of IDEAL IMPLANTS 

Dr. Anigian is so well-versed in the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant that he co-authored a clinical article reviewing the long-term performance of the latest and most advanced structured implant technology. The article received the 2019 PRS Best Cosmetic Surgery Paper Award at Plastic Surgery The Meeting. What makes the IDEAL IMPLANT so special is its internal structure. It features a series of shells nested together and two separate chambers that control the movement of the saline inside, giving it a natural look and feel. It is filled only with saline, which can be safely absorbed by the body in case of a rupture. 

Silicone gel implants and unstructured saline implants do not have this unique and distinctive internal structure. One of the compromises of silicone gel implants is that if the implant ruptures, the silicone gel can leak into the body and is not easily detected without an expensive MRI or an ultrasound scan. However, silicone gel is generally believed to give women a more natural look and feel than unstructured saline implants.

With unstructured saline implants, the saline is harmlessly absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture, they have the tendency to ripple and wrinkle and do not provide women with a natural look or feel.

In 2006, Dr. Robert Hamas invented a new third type of implant, which eliminates the compromises of both silicone gel and unstructured saline, while enhancing the benefits of each. The IDEAL IMPLANT underwent nearly ten years of research involving 502 women, plastic surgeons, engineers, scientists, and consultants before being FDA approved in 2014. Dr. Anigian is one of the plastic surgeons from across the nation to conduct the original clinical trial of the  IDEAL IMPLANT. 

Planning Your Breast Surgery with Dr. Anigian

Prior to your consultation, reflect on the goals that you wish to achieve with a breast augmentation. Are you wanting the best type of breast implants? Fuller, more perky breasts? Or are you looking for reconstructive breast surgery? Dr. Anigian specializes in all of these breast procedures. During your consultation, Dr. Anigian will evaluate your health, explain surgical techniques, and help you determine which type of implant is best for you. Breast implant size is measured in cubic centimeters (cc), but additional factors should be considered such as texture, shape, profile, and diameter. 

Breast augmentation is an outpatient surgery, which means you will be released from the surgical center the same day as the surgery. Most women are able to return to work and normal activity within a few days. Heavy lifting, strenuous activities or exercise should be avoided for a few weeks. Dr. Anigian will provide you with specific instructions depending on your case. 

Why You Can Feel Confident Choosing Dr. Anigian

Dr. Anigian and his staff take pride in making certain that each patient feels confident in their choice for breast implants, knowledgeable in their options, and safe. Whether you are seeking a breast augmentation for reconstructive purposes, a breast lift, a more youthful shape, or just the best type of breast implants, Dr. Anigian and his team are there to guide you. Dr. Angigian has a 4.8 star rating out of 5 stars on RealSelf, has been in practice for 30 years, and has remarkable references.  

“I never dreamed that my results would be so awesome! I should have done it sooner! My breasts are perky and I can even go without a bra (never thought that was in my future). My breasts are symmetrical, even and perfectly natural. My stitches were beautiful and my skin is now healing with minimal scarring and they have been slowly disappearing.” – RealSelf Review

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

IMPORTANT NOTE: Below you may find untouched before and after photos of patients who have granted permission to their surgeon to show them anonymously. While we protect the identities of our patients, please be advised that by their nature, these photos contain sensitive content.

Have you ever wondered, “how much does breast augmentation cost?” Many women want to have a breast augmentation, but they hesitate because they don’t know the amount they will be expected to pay. When it comes to cosmetic surgery, it’s important to consider all the factors of your decision, not just the financial ones. Every patient deserves a plastic surgeon who combines years of experience to deliver exceptional results. After 30 years in practice, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald Schuster is known as talented, compassionate, and accomplished. At his private practice in Baltimore, Maryland, Dr. Schuster specializes in cosmetic surgery for the face, breast, and body. 

Dr. Schuster keeps up with the latest advancements in the plastic surgery industry to help his patients achieve their personal goals. Dr. Schuster has performed hundreds of breast augmentations and is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, a new breast implant technology for women.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

On RealSelf.com, the average cost of a breast augmentation is listed as $6,525. That figure can fluctuate based on several different factors. Your total price tag may be more or less depending on:

  • Your selected surgeon’s level of expertise
  • How involved or complex your procedure is
  • The implants you select
  • The city in which your surgeon practices
  • The type of anesthesia used and who administers it
  • Cost of recovery garments (sometimes lumped in with the surgical cost, sometimes not)
  • The time of year you choose to get your breast augmentation

Because cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, it is not covered by health insurance plans. Dr. Schuster and his staff have a variety of financing options that will allow you to work out a payment plan that you’re comfortable with. You should ask questions like, “Does the overall cost cover pre-and post-op visits? Will the cost include any pain management?” to make sure you’re not surprised by anything.

During your personal consultation, Dr. Schuster will discuss all of the ins and outs of breast augmentation, including what goes on during the surgery and what you can expect to pay. He will also look at your unique anatomy—the width of your natural breasts, how soft your skin is, the amount of fat present, and any asymmetries and any other chest wall irregularities to determine what size and type of implant will help you meet your physical goals.

The IDEAL IMPLANT: A New Choice for Your Breast Augmentation

When contemplating, “how much does breast augmentation cost?” you’ll also need to look at the different implant types available on the market today: unstructured saline, silicone gel, and the new IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants. While the IDEAL IMPLANT may have a slightly higher initial cost than some other implants, you also need to think about the longer-term implications of your investment. 

Right now, if you choose silicone gel breast implants, the FDA recommends you obtain an MRI or ultrasound scan every two to three years to check for ruptures because a rupture in a silicone gel implant cannot be detected by looking at the breast, so it is called a “silent rupture.” “The average cost of an MRI in the U.S. is $2,000.” If you’re paying around $6,500 for your surgery, then $2,000 every 2-3 years after that, you’re spending a lot more in the future than you may want to. 

The IDEAL IMPLANT looks and feels similar to a silicone gel implant, but you can detect a rupture just by a quick glance in the mirror. Dr. Schuster says, “With the new IDEAL IMPLANT, it behaves like a silicone gel implant, but when it does wear out the woman knows about it right away, so it gives her peace of mind. She knows what’s happening with the implant. She doesn’t have to worry about getting an MRI to find out about it.”

The IDEAL IMPLANT also has a lower rate of both rupture and capsular contracture when compared to silicone gel-filled implants, so you’re less likely to experience these issues in the first place. And, with only saline inside, a woman can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the saline can be safely absorbed into her body tissues.

Breast Augmentation Before and After Photos

In these photos you’ll see a 33-year-old mother of two who disliked the sagging, uneven appearance of her breasts. She chose the IDEAL IMPLANT for her breast augmentation filled to 345 cc on the right, and 270 cc on the left. She was able to increase her cup size from a 34C to greater than a D cup.

These photos were taken nine months after breast augmentation, and the IDEAL IMPLANT allowed this patient to achieve the rounder, fuller look she was hoping for.

About Dr. Schuster

Dr. Schuster attended Emory University for his undergraduate, and then went on to obtain his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine. After medical school, Dr. Schuster completed a five-year general surgery residency at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. Upon completion of his five-year residency, he went on to finish a three-year residency and fellowship program in plastic surgery at Washington University’s Barnes Hospital. During his time there, Dr. Schuster developed professional ties with several world-renowned leaders in the field of cosmetic surgery. His work with these figures has afforded him the ability to select and incorporate the most effective treatments in his practice. He serves as Chief of the Plastic Surgery Division at Northwest Hospital Center in Baltimore County, Maryland in addition to his practice. 

Dr. Schuster is an active member of several distinguished cosmetic surgery organizations including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Schuster continues to share the extensive knowledge of surgical techniques he’s developed as a cosmetic surgeon by teaching at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. He has been repeatedly recognized as a Top Doctor by Baltimore Magazine and has been inducted into the RealSelf Hall of Fame.

“I visited a couple surgeons for breast augmentation and felt comfortable with Dr. Schuster right away. . . . I was a 32A pre-surgery and decided to go with the IDEAL IMPLANT at 360 cc. I could not be happier with the results! My boobs look completely natural and still soft. I have not lost any sensation anywhere and the side effects were minimal compared to the result. The scar has faded a lot and it’s very hard to see. All my friends think my boobs look great now and a couple of them even said they want it done also. If you are looking for a great surgeon for breast augmentation, I’d highly suggest Dr. Schuster . . . I think that was the best decision I made all year.” –Realself Review from jane.elizabeth.chin
