Learn more about getting a breast augmentation from Dr. Ringler below.

Breast Surgery Before and After Pictures: Why They Matter

Before you choose a plastic surgeon for your breast surgery it is important to look at their before and after pictures to see the kinds of results they offer. Most surgeons provide these on their website, Realself profile, or during a consultation. Dr. Ringler’s surgical skill is demonstrated in the before and after pictures below. 

This 41 year old patient received the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant® filled to 375cc. The “after” picture was taken one year post-op. As you can see, Dr. Ringler’s patient has natural looking results and will enjoy them for years to come.

How Much is Breast Surgery? Think About the Future

There are many factors that weigh into how much your breast surgery will cost. The total cost of a primary breast augmentation will include items such as:

  • Anesthesiologist fees
  • Medical tests
  • Surgical facility fees
  • Prescription medications
  • Surgeon fees
  • Breast implant choice

Insurance companies typically do not cover the cost of a cosmetic breast augmentation.

When you’re planning your breast augmentation, it is important to remember that frugality isn’t the top priority. Surgeons with more experience are likely to charge proportionate to their expertise. A highly skilled surgeon is more likely to get you the results you want. 

Likewise, choosing a breast implant just because it is the cheapest option isn’t always a good choice. Remember, you could have these implants for the next 30 years or more, the money you spend on your primary augmentation is an investment in your future. If you choose a breast implant simply because it costs less, even though it feels unnatural to you, you may opt for reoperation, increasing your costs. 

This is why, when it comes to asking “how much is breast surgery,” you need to think about your future, not just your present. At your first consultation, Dr. Ringler will review what each choice means for your results, both for the present and for the future. As Dr. Ringler explains, “I think it’s really important, as a physician, to educate the patient. That’s part of the informed consent process. I think patients need to understand what their options are. It’s their body. They need to make the decision.” Meanwhile, his staff will prepare for you a comprehensive and individualized quote. If you’re curious about the cost of breast surgery, don’t rely on an online calculator or estimator, visit Dr. Ringler’s office for a consultation today.

Breast Implant Complications

While most women with breast implants do not encounter complications, they are important to know about before your surgery, and another reason you need to choose your breast implants carefully. In addition to reviewing the look and feel of each breast implant, Dr. Ringler will explain the associated risks, including rates of rupture and capsular contracture. Choosing an implant with low rates of these more common complications, like the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, will help you avoid reoperation in the future.

Factor in Warranties to Answer How Much is Breast Surgery

When asking about the total cost of your breast surgery, you should also consider breast implant warranties. As with primary augmentations, insurance companies typically do not cover reoperations after cosmetic breast augmentations. That means if your breast implant ruptures you will have to pay for the reoperation out of your own pocket. Most implants come with warranties to cover these types of complications, but they vary on the specifics. One of the most comprehensive breast implant warranties is available with the  IDEAL IMPLANT, which offers affordable and renewable coverage for the most common post-surgery complications. To learn more about IDEAL IMPLANT’s warranty, visit the IDEAL IMPLANT website or ask Dr. Ringler during your consultation.

Whether you are just curious about breast surgery, or you’re ready to schedule your augmentation, Dr. Ringler and his staff welcome you to make your first appointment at the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery. Before you visit for the first time here are a few ways you can prepare:

What You Need to Know About Ruptured Breast Implant Pictures

If you have researched breast augmentation for any amount of time, chances are you have run across ruptured breast implant pictures. While these pictures can be jarring, you may wonder “do I really need to worry about a rupture?” and “if my implant ruptures will it really look like that?” The truth is, a small portion of women who get breast implants do experience implant rupture. However, the breast implant you choose will have an impact on your level of risk. We spoke to Dr. Kent Hasen, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Naples, Florida, to learn how the latest breast implant technology is lowering women’s rupture risk and giving them great looking results. Read below to learn how you can choose the best breast implant for your body, and your peace of mind.

Different Implant Types

To understand ruptures you need to understand implant types. The FDA has approved three different types of breast implants for cosmetic enhancement: unstructured saline breast implants, silicone gel breast implants, and IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. Every type of breast implant is made with a solid silicone shell, then filled with either saline or silicone gel. 

  • Unstructured Saline Breast Implants: This implant type is made from one shell filled with sterile saline, the same fluid used in IV bags and naturally absorbed by the body if it ruptures. Ruptured breast implant pictures showing unstructured saline implants may resemble a deflated water balloon. As Dr. Hasen describes this implant, “it is very safe but feels kind of like an old-time water bed” and tends to ripple or wrinkle under the skin because of the lack of internal structure.   
  • Silicone Gel Breast Implants: The silicone gel that fills this type of implant is a thick, sticky substance that in some implants resembles honey or syrup, and in others is closer in firmness to a gummy bear. The silicone gel helps the implant to keep its shape and feel similar to natural breast tissue. If this implant ruptures the silicone gel must be removed completely as the body cannot absorb it like it does with saline.
  • IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant: The IDEAL IMPLANT is the newest breast implant technology, designed to give women the best of what unstructured saline and silicone gel implants have to offer. As Dr. Hasen explains, “the IDEAL IMPLANT is also filled with saline, however there are baffle shells inside. You can see the outer shell and then there’s two to four inner shells (depending on size) that allow for the fluid in it to move very slowly.” The controlled movement of fluid gives the IDEAL IMPLANT a natural feel, similar to natural breast tissue. The sterile saline gives women peace of mind that if their implant ruptures the saline will be naturally absorbed and the rupture can be detected immediately.

Ruptured Breast Implant Pictures

A breast implant rupture happens when the silicone shell of an implant forms a tear or hole, making a way for the substance inside, either saline or silicone gel, to leak into the surrounding tissue. An implant that is filled with saline, whether it is an unstructured or structured saline implant, will deflate after a rupture as the saline is naturally absorbed by the body, making rupture detection as easy as looking in a mirror. 

According to the FDA , some women with ruptured silicone gel breast implants experience symptoms such as, “a decrease in breast size, change in breast implant shape, hard lumps over the implant or chest area, an uneven appearance of the breasts, pain or tenderness, tingling, swelling, numbness, burning, or changes in sensation.” However, oftentimes women with silicone gel breast implants have a “silent rupture,” and the woman does not experience any rupture symptoms. The only way to detect a silent rupture is by visiting your doctor for an MRI or ultrasound scan.

No matter what type of breast implant you have, the FDA recommends removing ruptured implants. If you have a silicone gel implant your surgeon will also have to remove any silicone gel that has leaked into surrounding tissue or migrated past the scar tissue capsule.

Don’t Let Ruptured Breast Implant Pictures Scare You

Breast augmentation has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for years, because it gives women increased confidence and lasting results. If you’re worried about implant rupture rates you can see how different implant types compare with data from FDA Core Clinical Trials at the IDEAL IMPLANT’s Compare Page. Then, talk to a surgeon like Dr. Hasen to learn about the benefits and compromises of each implant type so you can make an educated choice for your body. 

Dr. Hasen is one of the exclusive board-certified plastic surgeons in the nation offering the latest breast implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. One reason he offers this newer option is the low risk rate. “The IDEAL IMPLANT . . . has been shown to be very safe,” explains Dr. Hasen. “It’s got a long history of not having few ruptures as well as a very low capsular contracture rate. So in patients that are looking for an alternative to silicone gel this is a great option.” In fact, IDEAL IMPLANT’s rupture risk over ten years for a primary augmentation is only 3.7%, compared to popular silicone gel implants which range from Sientra’s 8.7% to Mentor’s 24.2%.

Benefits of Under Muscle Implants and the IDEAL IMPLANT®

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.

Women who are looking for breast enhancement through implants often wonder about their implant options as well as how the implants will be placed and what their incision scars will look like. With board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Tehrani of Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, women are provided a variety of options as well as a say in where their incisions will be and how their implants are placed-whether over the muscle or under muscle implants. All of these decisions will be thoroughly discussed with Dr. Tehrani during your consultation. Together, you’ll be able to decide on the best plan for your particular body type and vision. Because Dr. Tehrani is experienced in all types of breast surgery, he is able to create amazing results for each patient based on their individual needs and desires. Learn more about what he can offer you-including anatomical breast implants and the latest in implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. 

Anatomical Under Muscle Implants 

Anatomical implants have a “teardrop shape” that is more contoured looking than round implants. These implants can be customized to what you want, with different fillings, profiles, and heights as well as your choice of over the muscle or under muscle implants. Implants placed under the muscle often lend a more natural look with the upper pole of the breast being less round and full than the bottom portion. Anatomical implants also have textured shells which are intended to help the implant adhere to the tissue where it is inserted and prevent the implant from turning and potentially changing the overall look. Since anatomical implants are not round, their placement requires experience and attention to detail as well as a knowledge of the specific type of pocket to create.

IDEAL IMPLANT

Whether you want anatomical or round implants, consider the benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT, the latest in breast implant technology. Surgeons and patients alike love this implant because it has a natural look and feel with a significantly lower risk of rupture than silicone gel implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT is designed to last a lifetime. However, in the rare case that it does rupture, women can tell just by looking in the mirror while the saline filling inside is harmlessly absorbed by the body. This allows them to safely seek implant replacement without the need for an MRI or ultrasound imaging. The under muscle implants shown in the before and after photos below, as well as those on Dr. Tehrani’s website will show you how the IDEAL IMPLANT combines the best of all breast implant features in one. 

“I was referred to Dr. Tehrani by a friend for breast augmentation. I am so pleased with my results. I am currently 1 year post op and could not be happier. The staff was extremely kind and caring and I really felt Dr. Tehrani listened to exactly what I wanted and took great care of me. I love the way my breasts look and feel and definitely recommend him to other patients looking for breast augmentation!”

Aside from some nerve pain while sleeping, the entire process was flawless and pretty easy. So happy I went with Dr. Tehrani. Jesse was also fantastic.

Why Choose Dr. Carlino for High Profile Breast Implants

Anybody who has contemplated plastic surgery can tell you that it’s not easy figuring out what you want and who you should trust as your plastic surgeon. Many patients are willing to travel across the country if they can be guaranteed confidence in the person they are about to trust with their body and their future. As you get to know Dr. Richard Carlino of Specialists in Plastic Surgery, you’ll soon realize that he is a top surgeon and an easy choice. Because of his expertise and experience in the field, you can have peace of mind knowing that he will ensure you get what you are looking for and what will look best for your body. He is able to perform a variety of procedures, offering everything from high profile breast implants to non-invasive cosmetic surgery. Once you know what he can offer, you’ll soon stop your search and get started on the new you.

Meet Dr. Richard Carlino

Dr. Richard Carlino, a board-certified plastic surgeon, has been practicing various types of plastic surgery, including breast augmentation surgery, for over 30 years. In this time he has seen many different women with all kinds of body styles and desires. This experience has given him the opportunity to learn various techniques and options for breast implants in order to cater to each individual patient’s desires. He understands the importance of providing women with all possible options-including unstructured saline implants, silicone gel implants, and high profile breast implants like the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. He listens to his patients’ goals, educates them on what’s available, and formulates a plan of action that will look best for their particular body type. 

In his own words, Dr. Carlino describes his philosophy for plastic surgery-

“Plastic Surgery is about change–sometimes it’s a change in a feature that a person doesn’t like, or perhaps it’s about body features that have changed with time; sometimes it’s about maintenance and looking as good as you feel. My goals are threefold:

  1. To offer my patients an extraordinary level of expertise in a very individual and personalized setting.
  2. To understand the aesthetic goals of my patients while helping to establish realistic expectations.
  3. Above all, to form a comfortable and trusting relationship allowing each patient to undergo his or her surgery with confidence.

[Plastic surgery] is about working with patients and defining the correct procedures to perform to get their desired results. It’s about the ability to understand and communicate realistic from unrealistic aesthetic goals. With every patient, I work to combine my in-depth plastic surgery training… and ability as a surgeon to provide each patient with extraordinary results.”

The Breast Augmentation Process

Whether you’re looking for high profile breast implants or some other type of breast surgery, the breast augmentation process is about the same. Initially, you’ll meet with Dr. Carlino for a consultation where you’ll discuss your options and how the entire process will go for about one hour. He’ll talk to you about operative time, recovery, potential risks, and different options for implants. Unlike other surgeons, Dr. Carlino doesn’t limit his implant options or vendors. With more implant options available as well as Vectra 3-D Imaging which lets you see a 3D image of your expected breast appearance post surgery, you are more likely to achieve your goals for your breast augmentation.

General and/or local anesthesia is combined with sedation to make you comfortable before your breast augmentation procedure. Small incisions are made in discreet locations agreed upon by you and Dr. Carlino based on your consultation and which type of breast implant you are receiving. The incisions’ size and location typically includes the breast crease, and in certain situations will be under the areola. A pocket is made behind or in front of the pectoral muscles and the implant is placed into the pocket and secured with sutures.

Even though you will notice an immediate difference in your breasts, swelling and bruising from surgery may initially obscure the changes, making it hard for you to see clear results for the first few weeks. This is a normal part of the healing process. Dr. Carlino will follow up with you soon after to check on you and how you are healing. 

Your Breast Implant Options

Every breast implant, including a high profile breast implant, has its advantages and disadvantages, which Dr. Carlino will explain to you thoroughly. Because you have so many options, Dr. Carlino is able to tailor your implants to your individual needs and desires.  The latest implant on the market, the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant has the look and feel of the silicone gel implant with no risk of silent rupture. Because the IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured implant filled with saline, a rupture can be detected right away just by looking in the mirror while the saline is harmlessly absorbed by the body. 

The ideal patient for the structured IDEAL IMPLANT is someone with a reasonable amount of breast tissue who wants a moderate to high profile breast implant and doesn’t want to worry about the safety risks of a silicone gel implant. Another benefit of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it is guaranteed for life with the IDEAL IMPLANT Premium Protection Plan. If it ruptures, it will be replaced free of charge.

Silicone Gel Implants vs. The IDEAL IMPLANT®

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.

Thinking about getting silicone gel implants for your breast augmentation? In New York City, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Rapaport specializes in cosmetic surgery procedures for the breast, body, and face. With over 27 years of experience, Dr. Rapaport has the knowledge and expertise to deliver beautiful, natural-looking results. All of the procedures conducted by Dr. Rapaport are performed on-site in his fully accredited office surgical suite on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York.

When it comes to breast augmentation, Dr. Rapaport has more experience with the endoscopic underarm technique than any other plastic surgeon in the New York area. He is also part of an exclusive group of surgeons who now offer IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants, the latest in breast implant technology. The IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel implants for primary augmentation over ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and of capsular contracture. Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has, too! Dr. Rapaport is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with the IDEAL IMPLANT. 

What You Need to Know About the IDEAL IMPLANT

The IDEAL IMPLANT is a saline-filled breast implant with a unique structure that controls the movement of the saline solution so it feels natural to the touch. It gives women a beautiful, youthful appearance and contours to the shape of a woman’s chest. There are a lot of key differences between the IDEAL IMPLANT and silicone gel implants that make it appealing to a lot of women:

  • The material inside of an IDEAL IMPLANT is saline, while gel implants contain sticky, silicone gel not natural to your body.
  • When comparing FDA Clinical Trial Data.  The IDEAL IMPLANT is less likely to rupture with only a 3.7% rate of rupture after ten years compared with leading silicone gel brands that have a rupture rate between 8.7 and 24.2%.
  • Clinical trail data also shows women with leading silicone gel brands experience capsular contracture 12.1-18.9% of the time, while patients with IDEAL IMPLANT have a low rate of capsular contracture at only 6.6%.
  • There is no need to worry about silent rupture with the IDEAL IMPLANT. You can detect a rupture just by looking in the mirror. Silicone gel implants require an expensive MRI or ultrasound scan to detect a rupture. In a recent independent survey, 98% of women surveyed said they would be concerned about silent rupture with silicone gel implants.
  • The IDEAL IMPLANT is inserted empty, and only filled once in position, so the incision needed is smaller than the incision necessary for silicone gel implants. This results in women with the IDEAL IMPLANT having smaller, less noticeable scars.

Dr. Rapaport says, “Based on my experience, I would say the IDEAL IMPLANT is an excellent option. Patients like the look and the feel. Above all they really like the peace of mind of knowing that they haven’t done anything they might regret down the road or that if there is a rupture, the process of replacing it is easier than with other implants that rupture.”

If you do have to replace an IDEAL IMPLANT, it is a simple procedure that can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. Old implant out, new implant in. Whereas with silicone gel implants, often sticky silicone gel has leaked out, and the surgeon has to spend time cleaning out the gel, removing scar tissue, and changing out the implant. 

In addition to these benefits, the structured IDEAL IMPLANT also doesn’t have the problems of unstructured saline implants. There are no visible ripples or obvious wrinkling as sometimes occurs with unstructured saline implants. That’s because the series of nested shells that make up the IDEAL IMPLANT give women a smooth, natural look.

A Video of an IDEAL IMPLANT Breast Augmentation 

In this video, you’ll see a 25-year-old woman, three months post-augmentation who chose the IDEAL IMPLANT for her procedure. Dr. Rapaport used the endoscopic, underarm approach to insert the implants. On her left side, the implant was filled to 300cc, and on the right the implant was filled to 275cc to improve the patient’s slight breast asymmetry.

One main reason this patient chose the IDEAL IMPLANT is because she didn’t want to have to worry about monitoring her breasts for silent rupture, or obtaining regular MRIs or ultrasounds. In the video you can see there is no visible scar on the breast and she was able to obtain a great result while also achieving peace of mind.

Silicone Gel Implants vs. IDEAL IMPLANT: Which is Right for Me?

When you go in for a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Rapaport, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your personal goals for cosmetic surgery, and ask any questions you may have about your chosen procedure. “I look at a breast augmentation consultation as an educational process,” says Dr. Rapaport. “With the necessity being that the patient learn about her options.” 

With a breast augmentation, you have the option of incision through the underarm, areola, or in the skin that connects underneath your breast to your chest. Dr. Rapaport performs most of his breast augmentations with underarm incisions using an endoscope. “Throughout my years of practice, it has been very satisfying to achieve a natural-appearing breast appearance without any scar on the breast,” says Dr. Rapaport. “It is very rewarding to see these patients both early after surgery and years after their operation, maintaining their results, and all without any breast scars.”

Each patient will be able to try on a variety of breast implant sizes and profiles and decide which size is best for her. Dr. Rapaport will clearly indicate if a patient’s request for size is not compatible with her anatomy. Dr. Rapaport places extreme importance on his patient’s preferences, and he will not push you or corner you into making your individual decision. 

Choose Dr. Rapaport for Your Procedure

Board-certified New York plastic surgeon David Rapaport, did his plastic surgery training at the New York University’s Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, which is widely regarded as the nation’s top plastic and cosmetic surgery residency program. After a one-year microsurgery fellowship, Dr. Rapaport moved to Florida. There, he developed a successful and respected practice as a cosmetic plastic surgeon. During his four years in Florida, he also did pioneering work in endoscopic and minimal incision breast and oncologic (melanoma) surgery. In 1997, he returned to New York and opened his private practice of cosmetic surgery in NYC. His endoscopic work has helped him gain popularity among women who don’t want scars on their breasts post surgery. 

“I was referred to Dr Rappaport by a girlfriend who had the most natural results. . . I knew from the moment I had the consultation that he was the ideal surgeon for me. Four months post op and the results exceeded my wildest dreams. I look (and feel) as good as I did pre kids if not better. An unbelievably natural and proportional (across my body)result. I highly recommend Dr Rappaport!”

Aristocrat Plastic Surgery

Dr. Tehrani and his staff at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery strive relentlessly for the highest level of patient satisfaction. If you have questions about finding the perfect breast implant cc, they will help you with your selection. Your personal aesthetic goals are attainable with the care and expertise at Dr. Tehrani’s surgical facilities. From the beautiful waiting room to the state-of-the-art technology and equipment used, patients know they are in the best possible hands throughout their surgical experience. Dr. Tehrani has been named by his peers to be one of the Top 10 Plastic Surgeons in New York by both Top10ofNewYork, and the America Top 10.

Advanced Technique in Breast Augmentation

Dr. Tehrani also specializes in transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA), in which implants are placed through a very small incision inside the rim of the navel. He is one of just a few New York City surgeons to successfully use the TUBA technique on a routine basis. Dr. Tehrani can even insert some types of breast implants through other existing scars, including those resulting from an appendectomy, gallbladder surgery, or C-section. Because the breast implant cc is filled after insertion into the breast, IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants can be used in patients who desire the TUBA surgical technique. Dr. Tehrani explains:   

“Patients who desire a breast enlargement procedure but do not want noticible scars can benefit from this type of implant. IDEAL IMPLANTS can be inserted under the armpit with an inconspicuous hidden scar. With no visible scarring, no one will know the patient underwent a breast augmentation procedure.” 

New York City’s Preferred IDEAL IMPLANT Surgeon

As one of the top plastic surgeons in New York, Dr. Tehrani is proud to offer the latest breast implant technology to his patients. Aristocrat Plastic Surgery is one of the exclusive places available to find the IDEAL IMPLANT. Dr. Tehrani is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon, meaning he has an increased level of experience with this implant technology. The IDEAL IMPLANT is a saline-filled breast implant with a unique structured design. Women who love the natural look and feel of silicone gel implants but also want peace of mind will find exactly what they’re looking for in the IDEAL IMPLANT. Whether you want a smaller breast implant cc size or a larger one, IDEAL IMPLANT is the only one to offer beauty without compromise.

IDEAL IMPLANT Advantages 

One major advantage of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it comes with zero risk for silent rupture. When a silicone gel breast implant leaks, there are no noticeable signs or symptoms. The best way for a woman to know whether her silicone gel implants are intact is to have an MRI or ultrasound scan. IDEAL IMPLANT patients never have to worry about the integrity of their breast implants. If a rupture were to occur, it would be immediately obvious and the saline could be harmlessly absorbed into the body. Surgery is still necessary to remove a ruptured IDEAL IMPLANT, but the process is much simpler than the removal of a silicone gel implant that has leaked into the breast. Silicone gel is a sticky substance, and requires a complex surgical procedure to ensure its complete removal from the body along with the surrounding scar capsule. 

No other breast implant compares to the IDEAL IMPLANT in terms of beauty and peace of mind. Dr. Tehrani’s patients who choose IDEAL IMPLANT are choosing technology that significantly outperforms other major breast implant brands. According to the latest data from 10 year FDA Core clinical trials (primary augmentation), IDEAL IMPLANT has lower rates of both rupture and capsular contracture than silicone gel implant implants. 

For example, one silicone gel implant has a 12.1% capsular contracture rate and a 24.2% rate of rupture over 10 years. At a 6.6% rate of capsular contracture and 3.7% rate of rupture over 10 years, IDEAL IMPLANT provides a much lower risk factor for women. Breast implant technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has too.         

Breast Implant cc Before and After Photos

Looking at before and after photos of other breast augmentation patients can help you visualize the end result you want. It can also help clearly communicate your goals to your doctor. Dr. Tehrani’s website features a gallery of patient before and after photos to help you make informed decisions. Below is a photo of one of Dr. Tehrani’s breast augmentation patients who chose IDEAL IMPLANT. This woman was wearing a B-cup before her surgery, and wanted to go one size up. Dr. Tehrani performed bilateral breast augmentation using 340cc IDEAL IMPLANTS.

Once you select a well-qualified plastic surgeon and an implant that offers both beauty and security, finding the right breast implant cc size will come naturally. Dr. Tehrani’s additional experience with IDEAL IMPLANT makes him an excellent choice for your New York City breast augmentation.

Dr. Newman Answer Questions About Structured, Silicone Gel, and Unstructured Saline Breast Implants

When you are planning your breast augmentation, finding a trustworthy, board-certified plastic surgeon should be at the top of your to-do list. You should find someone you feel comfortable with, who answers all your questions, offers the latest breast implant technology, and is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. For women in the Los Angeles area, Dr. Michael Newman is that surgeon. Dr. Newman combines his eye for aesthetics with careful surgical techniques to help women achieve their goals. He also believes that every woman should have access to all the options available for enhancement, and be educated about what each option entails. We spoke to Dr. Newman about why he offers silicone gel, unstructured saline breast implants, and the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, and how he helps patients choose the best option for their bodies and lifestyles.

Can you tell us about your experience performing breast augmentation and other cosmetic procedures?

“I’m a board certified plastic surgeon. I’ve got offices in Beverly Hills and Torrance, and I book locations in Los Angeles. I’m part of a four person plastic surgery group, and I’m also a clinical associate professor at UCLA where we work with some of the residents and teach them the principles about plastic surgery. In my practice, we really have a broad spectrum of care. Probably the most common thing that we do is breast augmentation, but we certainly do the full spectrum of other types of surgery as well. Some types of breast reconstruction, and then a variety of cosmetic surgery: liposuction, fat transfer, facial surgery, et cetera. Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures performed nationally every year, and we get a lot of people coming in asking about breast augmentation.”

Why do you offer IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, silicone gel, and unstructured saline breast implants?

“When it comes to implants, I think it’s important for patients to know about every implant that’s available. And so I think it’s almost a disservice to not offer an implant to patients. So I tell all of my colleagues that they should be able to at least speak about and offer every type of implant to every patient and help them make an informed decision as to which implant is the best for them. 

“We are fortunate in our group to be able to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT to patients. And we’re very excited to have that available, because it offers so many advantages. Those advantages include things like a very low capsular contracture rate, very low rupture rate, no silent rupture, and incredibly natural feel and look, and tremendous satisfaction for both patients and physicians.”

During a typical consultation do you show patients structured, silicone gel, and unstructured saline breast implants?

“When patients come in consulting about breast augmentation, we’ll lay all the implants out on the table, literally, so that they can feel every implant, we’ll show them different cohesivities for the different silicone gel implants, show them an unstructured saline breast implant, and then show them an IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. And, in addition, what we’ll do is, sometimes, place a little covering over the implants and kind of do a blind test and tell them, ‘Well, why don’t you feel each one of these, and we’ll mix them up a little bit, let us know which one feels the most natural to you.’

“And typically a lot of patients end up asking, ‘Well, what do most people do? I’m confused with all these choices, which one do most people select?’ or they’ll ask, ‘Well, which one would you recommend to your friend or your family member?’

“The most common choice in our practice is silicone gel. But then there is a subset of patients that decide that they want the safety of knowing if their implant is ruptured. And so, for those patients, we talk about a water-filled implant, and my favorite saline or water-filled implant is the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. So we definitely recommend that to patients if they’re asking about what I would prefer for my family member or my friend, but we also want to give them the choices so they don’t feel pressured in any way. They should be making the choice that’s best for them.”

Do you find patients who choose IDEAL IMPLANT over unstructured saline breast implants or silicone gel to be happy with their choice?

“Patients that get an IDEAL IMPLANT for breast augmentation are usually very happy with their results. They often come in asking about safety as a major concern, and they also are very in touch with their bodies. So patients that choose IDEAL IMPLANT are usually very athletic, very aware of their bodies and their health, often very physically active. And I’ve had all of them, really, without regret say that was the right implant for them.

“One of our office managers who was involved in quoting the whole patient interaction, saw all these happy patients and she wanted to get surgery. And she actually elected to get an IDEAL IMPLANT, because she saw how incredible the results were and how happy the patients were. She heard about how safe the implant is and how it’s such low risk. So I think there really can’t be a stronger endorsement than seeing one of your own employees choose that implant as the best implant for them.”

How the IDEAL IMPLANT® Significantly Outperforms Silicone Breast Implants

Breast augmentation continues to be a popular cosmetic surgery procedure, with just over 193,000 breast augmentations performed in 2020. While silicone breast implants and unstructured saline implants are still viable options, women can access the latest breast implant technology when they choose the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel for primary augmentation over ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture. Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has, too!

In Beachwood, Ohio, Dr. Steven Goldman is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience who specializes in body contouring and breast augmentation. Dr. Goldman was  recently recognized as an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with this advanced implant technology. He’s excited to be among a select group of board-certified plastic surgeons to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT to his patients.

Why Women Choose the IDEAL IMPLANT Over Silicone Breast Implants

The IDEAL IMPLANT is designed to give women a beautiful look and peace of mind. It is a structured implant composed of a series of nested shells that surround the saline, keeping it in place for less wrinkling and rippling. The edges of the implant have also been lowered for a more natural contouring to the chest wall. The IDEAL IMPLANT also allows your surgeon to make smaller incisions because they are not pre-filled. This unique design means women can achieve a natural look without noticeable scars.

There’s also no need to worry about a “silent rupture” when you pick the IDEAL IMPLANT. A quick glance in the mirror will tell you that your implants are intact. “Saline-filled implants are easier to follow for leaks long-term because saline-filled implants deflate, and a patient sees the deflation,” says Dr. Goldman. “Whereas silicone, if it leaks, may not actually look any different.”

In a 2017 Independent Survey, “Women’s Preferences in Breast Implants,” 98% of women reported they would be concerned about silent rupture with silicone gel implants. The FDA recommends that women who choose silicone breast implants obtain an MRI or ultrasound scan every 2-3 years after augmentation in order to detect any silent ruptures.

Women like the IDEAL IMPLANT because it has an extremely low rupture rate of only 3.7% over ten years, for primary augmentations. That’s compared to leading silicone gel implants, where 8.7 to 24.2% of patients experienced a rupture and had to have their implant replaced.

Another common breast implant complication is capsular contracture. Only 6.6% of women with the IDEAL IMPLANT experienced capsular contracture over ten years, for primary augmentations, compared to women with silicone gel implants who dealt with it far more often at rates of 12.1-18.9%. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, you’ll have increased peace of mind knowing your implants are less likely to rupture or develop capsular contracture within the first ten years.

Dr. Goldman’s patients appreciate his “Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation” process that allows them to get back to their normal lives as safely and quickly as possible.

“I highly recommend Dr. Goldman. Chose him for a breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier with both the results and recovery. I was walking the same day, actually walked several blocks that evening. I also only used the pain medication the first night, after that there I didn’t need anything for pain. I only missed two days of work. No bleeding, scars are barely visible. This surgery and the recovery period went so much better than I anticipated. Dr. Goldman and his entire staff are such a pleasure to work with, kind, patient and friendly. I’m five months out and my only regret is not having the surgery done sooner!” – Realself.com review from daum

How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last? Why the IDEAL IMPLANT® is a Great Long-Term Option

Last year, despite a worldwide pandemic, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that just over 193,000 breast augmentations were performed. Many women elect to have breast augmentation because it can restore lost volume after breastfeeding and pregnancy, or they just want to enhance what they already have. Before choosing to have this procedure, you may be asking questions like, “how long does breast augmentation last?” While breast implants may not be “lifetime devices”, the good news is that they last a lot longer than they used to. “. . . In many cases, breast implants can remain in good shape for 20 years or more.”

Women can take advantage of the latest breast implant technology when they choose the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. The IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel for primary augmentation over ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture. Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has, too!

Voted “The State’s Best Plastic Surgeon 6 Years in a Row”, Dr. Donen Davis in Columbia, South Carolina was recently recognized as an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with this new implant technology. He’s excited to be among a select group of board-certified plastic surgeons to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT® to his patients.

How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last with IDEAL IMPLANT?

The IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured implant, uniquely designed to give women the look and upper pole fullness they want. A series of nested shells surrounds the saline filling of the implant, keeping it from sloshing around and making the implant behave similarly to a silicone gel implant.

Only 3.7% percent of patients experienced a rupture over ten years with the IDEAL IMPLANT. With silicone gel implants, 8.7% to 24.2% of patients experienced a rupture and had to have their implant replaced.

You’ll also never need to worry about a “silent rupture” when you pick the IDEAL IMPLANT. A quick glance in the mirror will tell you that your implants are intact. The FDA recommends that patients who choose silicone gel-filled implants obtain an MRI or ultrasound scan at five to six years after augmentation, and every two to three years after that in order to detect any silent ruptures. This is an out-of-pocket cost, so many women don’t schedule these imaging appointments as routinely as they should.

About Capsular Contracture

Sometimes breast implants don’t last as long as they were designed to due to another issue called capsular contracture. This is where the “capsule” of scar tissue formed around the breast implant becomes unusually hard and starts to contract around the implant. This can cause the breast to look swollen and distorted and also cause pain in some cases. Only 6.6% of women with the IDEAL IMPLANT experienced capsular contracture over ten years, compared to women with silicone gel implants who dealt with it far more often at rates of 12.1-18.9%.

After going through breast augmentation surgery and several weeks of recovery, the last thing you want is a breast implant that’s going to cause you expensive problems down the road. Statistics prove that you can feel confident in your choice when you pick the IDEAL IMPLANT.

Benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT

The IDEAL IMPLANT is one of the best breast implant brands on the market because it is a structured breast implant comprised of a series of nested shells and filled with a saline solution. Dr. Claytor recommends this implant to his patients because it feels and looks natural but offers lasting peace of mind with the safety of saline and the features it provides. One of the safety benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it has a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture than other implants, like the silicone gel breast implants on the market. In the small chance that it does rupture, the saline inside the IDEAL IMPLANT is harmlessly absorbed by the body.

A recent study showed that the IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel implants for primary augmentation over ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and of capsular contracture. The study showed that the risk of implant rupture or deflation with IDEAL IMPLANT was 3.7% over ten years for primary augmentation, compared with  silicone gel implants at 8.7-24.2%. In addition, IDEAL IMPLANT has a 6.6% rate of capsular contracture, compared with silicone gel implants at 12.1-18.9%. The IDEAL IMPLANT allows women to instantly detect deflation just by looking in the mirror, while silicone gel implants require regular MRI or ultrasound scans to detect rupture.  Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has too.
