by | Jan 28, 2021 | Plastic Surgeon Feature

If you are considering breast implants, finding a skilled and knowledgeable plastic surgeon should be a top priority. It is important to work with a doctor that knows how to help you achieve the best results possible catered to your individual needs and desires. Women undergo breast surgery for a wide variety of reasons. One woman may be getting breast implants for the first time. Another may want to replace her current implants with an entirely different type. Others might be dealing with a ruptured breast implant and need expert care. At Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery Specialists, Dr. Martin Fox specializes in breast augmentation surgery no matter the reason. With more than 25 years of experience, he is a sought-after plastic surgeon in Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and surrounding areas.

Breast Augmentation Surgery with Dr. Fox

Breast augmentation is a popular procedure among Dr. Fox’s patients. Breast implants are not only for those wanting fuller, firmer breasts. Breast surgery is a wonderful solution to correct uneven breast size, compensate for unwanted changes that occur from pregnancy or nursing, create a more proportional silhouette, or fix an implant complication. Because no two women are the same, Dr. Fox takes the time to get to know each one of his patients. You will receive a customized treatment plan designed specifically to address why you want a breast augmentation and what you hope to accomplish with breast implants. He listens to the concerns of his patients and makes sure to answer their questions. As you work together, you are guaranteed the highest quality patient care and personalized support.

The Importance of Patient Education 

Dr. Fox is passionate about plastic and cosmetic surgery. He wants a woman to discover greater confidence in her appearance, more self-esteem, and increased happiness. He strives to empower his patients to make the best choice for their own body and personal goals. This is why he finds patient education an important component of the consultation process. He understands that receiving breast implants is a big decision for many women, especially if they’ve encountered a complication such as a ruptured breast implant. During your consultation visit, Dr. Fox will explain the three types of breast implants – unstructured saline, silicone gel, or the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. While many women are aware of saline or silicone gel implants, Dr. Fox offers a new, technology-driven structured implant in addition to these choices.

A New Breast Implant Option

Dr. Fox strives to utilize the latest, most up-to-date products and procedures available to be able to provide the most advanced care to his patients. He is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons as well as the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Furthermore, Dr. Fox is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon and is part of an exclusive group of plastic surgeons eligible to use this new breast implant option.

IDEAL IMPLANTS are made up of a series of implant shells that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. In the event of a ruptured breast implant, a woman’s body can harmlessly absorb the sterile, saltwater solution. As described on the IDEAL IMPLANT website:

“When considering breast implants, women want a beautiful, natural, and safe result that doesn’t leave them wondering whether their implant has ruptured silently. The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant is the latest implant technology designed by a plastic surgeon to give women the best of both worlds—the beautiful look and natural feel they want, with the safety of only saline inside.”

With silicone gel implants, a rupture can go undetected for years, known as a “silent rupture.” This allows the sticky, gel substance to leak from the ruptured breast implant and become trapped in the surrounding tissues. A “silent rupture” typically requires an expensive MRI scan to detect and surgery to clean out the escaped gel. Comparatively, IDEAL IMPLANTS have no risk of “silent rupture” and do not require regular MRI scans.

A Ruptured Breast Implant Study

A recent study compared IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants to three brands of silicone gel implants. The study looked at rupture rates and capsular contracture rates of Allergan Gel, Mentor Gel, and Sientra Gel against IDEAL IMPLANTS. The study concluded that IDEAL IMPLANTS showed a significantly lower risk of major complications compared to these silicone gel implants, stating: “The risk of implant rupture or deflation with IDEAL IMPLANT at eight years after primary breast augmentation was only 2.1% in comparison to silicone gel implants from Allergan (7.4%), Mentor (13.6%), and Sientra (7.2%) based on MRI scans.”

RealSelf review by pageanthead

“I highly recommend Dr. Fox and would refer my friends and family to him. He is experienced and very down to earth, easy to talk to, and knew exactly what I wanted and made it a reality. I’m so happy with my results! I have spoken to Dr. Fox several times over the phone and that is very unusual for doctors to do that. He cares about his patients and wants to speak to them himself instead of going through someone else. His staff are friendly and helpful as well. Very satisfied and so glad I went through with having my breast augmentation with Dr. Fox!!!”
