Dr. Ringler’s 35 years of experience in the art and science of cosmetic surgery will help you reach your breast augmentation goals. 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.

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!”

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!”

Finding the Perfect Breast Implant cc Size With Dr. Tehrani

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.

Once you decide to have breast augmentation, it opens the door to many other choices you will need to make. Options for the material, size, and even the placement of your breast implants can lead patients to feel unsure about which is the best fit for them. However, with a little research, you can be on your way to understanding how to make those important decisions. Finding the right surgeon is also crucial as you navigate through breast augmentation preparation. Dr. Kevin Tehrani is a renowned, board-certified plastic surgeon serving New York patients with unsurpassed care and expertise. From finding the perfect breast implant cc size to getting exceptional results, Dr. Tehrani is committed to the highest quality of patient care.  

When Art Meets Surgery

At his New York practice, Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kevin Tehrani’s patients enjoy unsurpassed care and results. Dr. Tehrani believes plastic surgery to be “the ultimate expression of art in surgery.” It is with this mindset that he has helped his patients achieve their aesthetic goals for over 15 years. Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Tehrani has extensive training and qualifications to provide top notch care to his patients. 

Dr. Tehrani earned his medical degree at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and was the Chief Resident in General Surgery during his residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. He served as Chief Resident yet again during his plastic and reconstructive surgery training at Kansas University Medical Center. Dr. Tehrani also served as Lieutenant Commander in Naval Reserves Medical Corps, and volunteers to help children with congenital and acquired defects in underdeveloped nations. 

In addition to serving clients at both his Manhattan and Long Island plastic surgery offices, Dr. Tehrani is Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. He is a member of several local and national societies, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Tehrani has presented both in the U.S. and abroad at major medical symposia.

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.

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.

Visualizing Natural Implants With Dr. Tehrani

What comes to mind when you think about your ideal breast augmentation results? Perhaps you want to look good in a swimsuit, or address asymmetry that makes bra shopping a nightmare. Maybe you want to reverse the clock by getting implants with a breast lift. Many women start with the goal of simply feeling more confident in their own skin, leading them to search for natural implants that will make them feel beautiful. A skilled plastic surgeon can help you reach your aesthetic goals and allow you to shed insecurities safely and effectively. Find out how you can get your ideal breast augmentation results with the help of renowned board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Tehrani.

Breast Augmentation Before and After

Before you schedule your consultation with Dr. Tehrani at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery it is helpful to look at before and after pictures and set realistic expectations. While every woman is different, looking at these pictures will give you a good idea of what is possible through breast augmentation. Below are the before and after pictures of a female patient who wanted to increase her breast size and address asymmetry. Using the latest breast implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, Dr. Tehrani was able to turn her vision into reality.

Visualizing Your Ideal Results

Looking at before and after pictures like the ones above will help you create aesthetic goals. You can visualize how implants will look once placed, discover why implant placement is important, and learn how to get the look of natural implants. Here are a few things to consider as you make aesthetic goals for yourself.

  • Your Ideal Size: As you look at before and after pictures you will notice fill volume is not equivalent to cup size. Two women with 350cc implants will have different results because of existing breast tissue, implant placement, and chest measurements. Instead of focusing on a specific fill volume, think about your ideal cup size and find pictures of women with similar measurements as you to show Dr. Tehrani.
  • Implant Placement: Is it better to place the implant above the muscle or below the muscle? While there are plenty of opinions thrown around online the truth is the best placement will be based on your specific body composition, lifestyle, and desired results. Dr. Tehrani will walk you through these options and explain the benefits and compromises of each so you can make an informed decision.
  • Implant Type: There are three types of breast implants, each with unique characteristics. Unstructured saline (essentially a water balloon), silicone gel, and IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants are all available at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery. At your consultation you will learn about factors to consider such as unstructured saline implant rippling, “silent rupture” in silicone gel implants, and how you can get a natural implant look with peace of mind using the IDEAL IMPLANT.
  • Surgical Incisions: Your surgical incision is an unavoidable part of getting a breast augmentation, but there are options for where your incision is placed. Under the breast crease, around the nipple, and under the arm are the most common incision sites. Dr. Tehrani is one of the few plastic surgeons in the nation to offer transumbilical breast augmentation, or TUBA. This technique places the incision at the navel, or through an existing scar such as one from a C-section, in order to hide the tell-tale breast augmentation incision. If you are interested in this technique, make a consultation today to learn more.
  • Combination Surgery: In order to achieve your aesthetic goals you may need to consider a combination surgery such as a breast augmentation with a lift, tummy tuck, or liposuction. These procedures are commonly combined in a mommy makeover. Dr. Tehrani will create an individualized treatment plan to help you reach all of your aesthetic goals in a safe and effective way.

Finding Options for Natural Implants and More

As you think about your aesthetic goals and search before and after pictures, keep in mind that every woman’s body is unique. For a successful surgical outcome you need a surgeon who recognizes this and offers a wide range of options to meet every woman’s needs. Unfortunately, many surgeons do not offer all the available options to their patients. Dr. Tehrani recognizes the need to make individualized treatment plans, and is dedicated to providing options like the IDEAL IMPLANT for a natural looking result.

Dr. Tehrani was one of the first board-certified plastic surgeons to begin offering the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, and was named an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon because of his extensive experience using the implant. The internal structure of the IDEAL IMPLANT gives women natural looking results by reducing the risk of rippling and providing stability. Because the implant is filled with saline, there is no need for repeated MRIs or ultrasounds to check for a silent rupture as with silicone gel implants, and the saline is naturally absorbed by the body if a rupture does occur. To discuss your implant and surgery options and find out if you are a good candidate for the IDEAL IMPLANT visit Dr. Tehrani today.

The Benefits of Getting Breast Implants with Dr. Richard Korentager

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed. Many women describe getting breast implants as a life-changing experience, including patients of Dr. Richard Korentager. He finds his patients not only report physical benefits, but emotional advantages as well.

A Positive Impact

Seeing the lives of his patients improve following surgery is why Dr. Korentager loves his work as a plastic surgeon. He states:

“I became fascinated by the field of plastic surgery as a medical student when I was exposed to the broad range of cases treated by plastic surgeons and found it to be a unique combination of science and artistry. My focus on reconstructive breast surgery, burn surgery and cosmetic surgery has allowed me to have a positive impact on the lives of my patients and develop long-term relationships with them.”

What Getting Breast Implants Changes

Dr. Korentager understands his patients seek out breast implants for a variety of reasons. He works hard to get to know each one of his patients to be able to formulate the best route to meet their individual needs. Some common causes for getting breast implants include:

  • To correct uneven breast size
  • To restore breast shape and size lost by breastfeeding or pregnancy
  • To enhance breast size after weight loss
  • To increase breast size when unhappy with natural development

The list doesn’t stop there though. Undergoing breast surgery results in much more than just a physical change. Women report:

  • Better self-confidence
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Healthier body image
  • Greater sense of femininity

Learning and Informing

Dr. Korentager is an advocate of educating his patients about their options when getting breast implants. With more than 30 years of experience, he enjoys sharing his vast knowledge with others too. He says:

“I initially entered private practice in Toronto but after moving to Kansas City I became an academic plastic surgeon at the University of Kansas. This allowed me to hone not only my plastic surgery skills but also to pursue my zeal for education. I have devoted my time to teaching residents and students in the schools of medicine, nursing and health professions. I have also become involved in health care simulation, physician wellness and coaching. My additional training in these areas has allowed me to expand my research to include not only clinical and basic science related to plastic surgery but also education and wellness.”

The Latest Advancements

Dr. Korentager also strives to remain up-to-date on the latest advancements in the plastic surgery industry. He explains:

“It is a privilege to be part of a plastic surgery department that advances the field of plastic surgery through research and education. Training the next generation of doctors and plastic surgeons allows me to always be current, challenged and optimistic for the future.”

As patients of Dr. Korentager, women getting breast implants have access to the most advanced and latest types available. Dr. Korentager is part of an exclusive group of board-certified plastic surgeons eligible to offer IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. Furthermore, he is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon, a position given to specific plastic surgeons with the most experience and knowledge about IDEAL IMPLANTS.

More About IDEAL IMPLANTS

How are IDEAL IMPLANTS different from silicone gel or unstructured saline breast implants? As the IDEAL IMPLANT website points out:

“In the past, women seeking breast implants were forced to choose between the peace of mind of saline or the more realistic look and natural feel of silicone gel. IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants are the next-generation technology that offers you the benefits of both, so women can feel beautiful and secure.”

Their unique design sets them apart from other kinds of breast implants. IDEAL IMPLANTS are made up of a series of implant shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. This advanced internal structure controls the movement of the saline solution, unlike unstructured saline implants.

Compared to silicone gel breast implants, IDEAL IMPLANTS also have a natural feel and youthful shape, but without the risk of silent rupture. Women with silicone gel implants are instructed to continually monitor their implants through expensive MRI scans or specialized ultrasounds due to the inherent risk of a “silent rupture”. This occurs when the sticky gel substance escapes from a damaged silicone gel implant and becomes trapped in the surrounding tissues of a woman’s body that requires surgery to remove.

Understanding Your Options

When getting breast implants, Dr. Korentager feels patient education is crucial. He wants women to understand their options and select the best type of breast implant that will help them achieve their goals. He takes the time necessary to address any concerns and answer any questions his patients have about breast implants and their long term upkeep. One patient describes her experience receiving IDEAL IMPLANTS with Dr. Korentager:

“I have the cookie cutter story! Two kids, breast fed each for 1 year. Pumping and nursing sucked me dry! Contemplated BA for a couple of years but didn’t feel comfortable with the idea of silicone (MRI check-ups, and just uncertainty of the material itself). I liked the idea of saline and had several friends with saline. But after two consultations I was advised that Celine probably wouldn’t provide me with very good results because of my lack of breast tissue . . . and because of how thin I am. So I did tons of research . . . and stumbled upon the IDEAL IMPLANT. There were only two doctors in my area that even had access to the IDEAL IMPLANTS . . . I researched the two doctors and made an appointment with the one that seemed to have the best reviews and overall experience. Fast forward with me . . . I decided to go with it . . . I can’t offer much of a review yet since I’m only 9 days out, but they look great so far! I went with 370cc which I’m hoping will take me to a full C cup once I’m all healed up.”

Dr. Tehrani Offers Women Desired Breast Augmentation Sizes

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.

The demand for breast augmentation procedures continues to steadily rise as more and more women realize they have options. Breast augmentation sizes are not one-size-fits-all and with safer, natural looking breast implant options, you no longer have to worry about what people will think or be overly concerned about potential risks. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Tehrani of Aristocrat Plastic Surgery experiences many requests for breast implants from his patients in Manhattan and Long Island. He will take the time in a one-on-one consultation with you to discuss your vision, lifestyle, and questions and concerns, including your many options for breast augmentation sizes. As part of an exclusive group of surgeons who now offer the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, Dr. Tehrani has the ability to provide you with even more options than other plastic surgeons. 

The IDEAL IMPLANT and Breast Augmentation Sizes

The IDEAL IMPLANT is the newest implant to approach the market of cosmetic surgery and is raising the bar for breast augmentation sizes. Patient satisfaction is high when it comes to this implant because it has a natural feel with a very low risk of rupture. 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 – 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. In a recent ten-year study, the IDEAL IMPLANT proved to have the lowest risk of rupture and capsular contracture rates among breast implant options for primary augmentation. This implant provides the priceless peace of mind that women want in New York and across the country. The breast augmentation size shown in the before and after photos below, as well as those on Dr. Tehrani’s website, will show you how this implant combines the best of all breast implant features in one. 

“Dr. Kevin Tehrani is extremely professional, he takes time to listen and time to explain. A first rate professional experience. Completely satisfied with the Dr. and all the support staff. Wonderful experience with Aristocrat Plastic Surgery. Kevin Tehrani was a wonderful surgeon, and the staff was always helpful and kind. They ensured I had a smooth prep, surgery, and follow-up. I am so glad I chose this clinic and would highly recommend it to anyone.” -Ingrida B., Google Review

Structured Implants, Silicone Implants, Size Charts, and More From Sound Plastic Surgery

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.

If you are considering a breast augmentation you are in good company. Breast augmentation is not only one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the Seattle area, it is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Almost 300,000 women every year decide to undergo a breast augmentation as a way to feel more confident in their bodies. It is important to remember that breast augmentation is a surgery and you need an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon performing it in order to get the results you want. Before you start thinking about details like structured versus silicone implants, size charts, or implant placement you need to find a plastic surgeon you trust. 

Sound Plastic Surgery: Premier Seattle Cosmetic Surgery

Breast augmentation, like most cosmetic procedures, is all about shedding anxieties you have about your body and boosting your self-esteem. In order to get the results you want you need a surgeon who listens to your goals and has the experience and skill to help you reach them. At Sound Plastic Surgery you will find two board-certified plastic surgeons who are dedicated to that end. Dr. Joshua Cooper and Dr. Scott Sattler make up the team of plastic surgeons at Sound Plastic Surgery. Both Dr. Cooper and Dr. Sattler are board-certified in plastic surgery and have the combined experience of several thousand plastic surgeries. 

In addition to being board-certified Dr. Cooper and Dr. Sattler are Fellows of the American College of Surgeons and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Their skills are also recognized by the Seattle community, who has voted them Top Doctors for many years. Patients love that their clinic is conveniently located in North East Seattle, and the surgeons have local hospital admitting and surgical privileges.

Structured Implants, Silicone Implants, Size Charts, And More

If you’re just getting started on your breast augmentation journey, you might not be aware of all the choices you have to make before surgery. In 2021 there are more choices than ever when it comes to things like breast implant type, incision placement, and implant size. This is great news for women. No two women are the same, and every breast augmentation should be catered to the patient’s specific needs. With more options every woman can get the results she wants without having to compromise. 

However, without an experienced plastic surgeon guiding you these choices can feel overwhelming. Fortunately, Dr. Cooper and Dr. Sattler are not only highly skilled surgeons, they are dedicated to providing safe and effective options, and educating each patient on the best choice for her lifestyle. Because of this commitment Sound Plastic Surgery is one of the exclusive clinics offering the latest breast implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. At your breast augmentation consultation your surgeon will review details such as the differences between a structured implant and silicone implant, size charts and what they mean, and how implant placement will affect you. 

Breast Implant Before and After Photos

There are several reasons it is important to look at breast implant before and after photos before you visit your surgeon for the first time. First, you need to know how skilled your surgeon is. Before and after photos will show you what you can expect from your surgeon including how natural the results will look. Below is the before and after picture of a 32-year-old breast augmentation patient of Dr. Sattler. She received the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant filled to 620 cc and placed via an infra-mammary incision in the dual-plane position.

As you can see from this patient’s before and after photos, Dr. Sattler’s surgical skill combined with the implant type and placement provide a natural looking result. 

Second, as you look through examples of women before and after their surgeries, you will notice that two women with similar implant and surgery details have very different looking results. Differences in body shape and existing breast tissue affect your overall results. This is one reason why a silicone implant size chart can be misleading. During your first breast augmentation consultation your surgeon will ask about your desired results, and you are encouraged to bring in pictures. If possible, find pictures of women with a similar body type to you. Your surgeon will discuss how you can achieve your aesthetic goals, and help you make the best choices for your body. You will also be able to “try on” different implants to see how they will fit to your unique frame. 

Reaching Your Aesthetic Goals at Sound Plastic Surgery

Part of Dr. Cooper and Dr. Sattler’s philosophy of patient care is making sure their patients have access to the best treatments options available. For women seeking breast augmentation Dr. Cooper and Dr. Sattler are proud to be among the top Seattle clinics offering the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. The IDEAL IMPLANT offers the best of what unstructured saline and silicone gel implants have by combining the peace of mind of only saline inside with a natural looking result. IDEAL IMPLANT also offers low rates of rupture and capsular contracture, giving women even more reason to love them. To learn more about this innovative new implant visit the IDEAL IMPLANT website. To discuss breast augmentation options offered at Sound Plastic Surgery, including IDEAL IMPLANT and silicone implants, size charts, implant placement, and more, schedule an appointment with Dr. Cooper or Dr. Sattler. 

If you’re looking for other plastic surgery procedures, such as an oxygen facial with a medical esthetician or a combination surgery like a Mommy Makeover, the staff at Sound Plastic Surgery is ready to help you with their extensive knowledge and dedication to patient care. As one recent patient explained in her Real Self review,

“I’ve been wanting my breast augmentation since I finished breastfeeding the last of my five kids. I searched for a long time before I decided on Sound Plastic Surgery and I am beyond delighted and overjoyed with my results. From my initial consultation to my aftercare and follow ups, I was cared for, listened to, and all my questions were answered thoroughly and thoughtfully. The surgery was a breeze, the recovery was fast, and my results are AMAZING. I couldn’t be happier with the entire experience and I highly recommend Dr. Sattler. He is respectful and kind, made me feel very comfortable and informed throughout the whole process. The patient care team is absolutely wonderful, Erin and Ana always responded quickly to my emails and phone calls, and friendly every time I went in for an appointment. I have never felt more at ease in any doctors office. I will without a doubt go back to Dr. Sattler for any future plastic surgery needs. A+ for Dr. Sattler and Sound Plastic Surgery!”

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.

“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
