Choosing the Right Breast Implant Brand for You

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

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

Breast Implant Consultations

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

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

Breast Implant Choices

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

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

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

Breast Implant Recovery

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