For your Orange County breast implants, before and after, pick a plastic surgeon with the expertise and skills to help you achieve the results you desire. Dr. Arian Mowlavi, also known as “Dr. Laguna,” is regarded as one of the top plastic surgeons in Orange County, California. With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Mowlavi specializes in liposuction, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and other cosmetic surgery procedures. Dr. Mowlavi is passionate about helping his patients look and feel their best using the latest technology. He is one of a select group of surgeons who offers his patients IDEAL IMPLANT® structured breast implants.
IDEAL IMPLANT: A Beautiful Look and a Natural Feel
For years, silicone gel implants and traditional saline implants have been standard options for breast augmentation patients. Though both of these implants perform well, their technology is outdated. The IDEAL IMPLANT comprises the best next-generation technology with superior benefits, so women can feel beautiful and secure with their breast implants before and after in Orange County. Filled with saline, the structure of the IDEAL IMPLANT is designed to hold the saline in place for a more natural look.
“I am often amazed at how nice the patient’s breasts look following saline implants even when augmented over 30 years ago! Unfortunately, traditional saline breast implants still have the disadvantage of feeling firmer (much like a water balloon) and creating lower breast pole rippling. . . Today, we have the luxury of using a new saline implant, called the IDEAL IMPLANT, which provides patients a saline implant option that feels more natural, like a silicone, and one which minimizes rippling. Specifically, the IDEAL IMPLANT utilizes a proprietary multi-laminar shell which softens the feel of the implant and which minimizes rippling.” – Dr. Arian Mowlavi
You should feel confident in your Orange County breast implants before and after surgery. Breast implant rupture and deflation can be reduced with the unique design of the IDEAL IMPLANT. Because the saline filler is contained in two separate chambers, if your implant leaks, it won’t completely deflate. You won’t have to rush to your plastic surgeon to get your implants fixed as soon as possible. You can take your time and have the implants replaced at your convenience.
Breast Implants Before and After in Orange County: Silent Rupture in Silicone Gel Implants
Originally created in the late 1960s, silicone gel implants are not the same as they used to be. They have undergone many changes in design and materials.
“Over the last 20 years, significant advances have been made to silicone gel implants. In fact, we are now implanting the 7th and 8th generation of silicone breast implants. The newest silicone implants have a slightly higher fill (96% fill versus the previous generation’s 85% fill) and more cross-linking of the silicone molecules, increasing the stiffness or “cohesiveness” of breast implants.” – American Society of Plastic Surgeons
Though silicone gel implants are thought of as feeling “more natural” when compared to traditional saline implants, there are some health concerns specifically associated with this particular type of implant. The main cause for concern is a silent breast implant rupture. The cohesive, sticky silicone gel that fills silicone breast implants means it’s impossible for women to detect a leak or rupture in their implants. When looking at Orange County breast implants before and after photos, you can’t tell if any of the silicone gel implants have a rupture with the naked eye. Women can have a silent rupture for months without developing any other symptoms, while silicone gel leaks into their body and makes contact with their natural tissue. The FDA recommends women obtain an MRI scan 3 years after surgery, and every 2 years after that to check for silent ruptures. These MRI scans are expensive and usually not covered by insurance.
The IDEAL IMPLANT: Rupture You Can Detect By Looking in the Mirror
Unlike silicone gel implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT carries zero risk of silent rupture. A woman can detect a leak in her implant just by a quick look in the mirror. Since the implants are filled with saline, you don’t have to stress about sticky silicone gel leaking into your body. The saline solution is harmlessly absorbed without any side effects. In under a half hour, and sometimes just using a local anesthetic, a plastic surgeon can take an IDEAL IMPLANT out and replace it with a new one using the same small incision originally made in the initial breast augmentation surgery. You don’t have to pay for any MRIs, and you don’t have to stress.
Orange County Breast Implants Before and After Photos
In these photos of breast implants before and after in Orange County, you’ll see a 37-year-old woman who had a breast augmentation from Dr. Mowlavi. She chose IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants filled to 405 ccs for a beautiful, natural look and peace of mind.
Additional Advantages to the IDEAL IMPLANT
Silicone gel implants also come with the risk of capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is the formation of a “capsule” of scar tissue around the breast implant. When the scar tissue becomes unusually hard, swollen, and starts to contract around the implant, women can experience pain and firmness.
“Research shows that about one in six breast augmentation patients experience some degree of capsular contracture, though not all cases present with obvious symptoms.” – American Society of Plastic Surgeons
Orange County breast implants before and after can develop capsular contracture, though the severity or “grade” will differ from patient to patient from 1 being the lowest to 4 being the most painful. In a recent 8 year study, the IDEAL IMPLANT was shown to have capsule contracture risk of grades 3 or 4 in only 6.6% of patients. This is a much lower risk compared to other implants on the market today.
Type of Implant # of Years Studied Capsule Contracture Risk
IDEAL IMPLANT 8 yr 6.6%
Allergan Gel 7 yr 16.2%
Mentor Gel 8 yr 10.9%
Sientra Gel 8 yr 11.2%
Women who want to have greater peace of mind choose the IDEAL IMPLANT for its natural look and its low risk of capsular contracture.
