Selecting the Right Plastic Surgeon for Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

by | Jan 22, 2021 | Plastic Surgeon Feature

What qualities do you want in a plastic surgeon? Are there certain merits or attributes you find important? Undergoing breast surgery is no small decision. It is natural to want the best of the best on your side. After all, your results depend on the skills, training, and precision of your plastic surgeon. In Washington State, Dr. David Stephens is a well-known plastic surgeon that specializes in breast augmentation surgery.

About Dr. David Stephens

With more than 23 years of experience, Dr. Stephens is passionate about helping men and women achieve their goals through plastic surgery. His research and innovations are known throughout the country, including his role in the introduction of endoscopic surgery on the breast and face. His work has led to several recognitions as well. Dr. Stephens has been voted multiple times as one of Seattle’s Top Plastic Surgeons by Seattle Magazine and King 5, one of the Top Western Washington Plastic Surgeons and Best Plastic Surgeon in 425 Magazine for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. He has also been noted as one of the top plastic surgeons in “Who’s Who” for physicians and surgeons nationwide.

Up-to-Date Products and Procedures

Advancements in technology have brought about new and improved changes in the plastic surgery industry, and Dr. Stephens is dedicated to providing the most advanced products and procedures available. With a commitment to creating the best experience possible for women seeking breast augmentation surgery, he offers a technology-driven breast implant option: IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. This unique type of breast implant combines the peace of mind that comes with saline-filled implants with the natural feel and realistic look women want from silicone gel implants. As an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon, Dr. Stephens is among an exclusive network of board-certified plastic surgeons eligible to offer this new implant choice.

The Difference with IDEAL IMPLANTS

Many women are familiar with saline or silicone gel implants, but do not like the idea of compromising beauty for security. IDEAL IMPLANTS fix that problem. Unstructured saline implants are known to behave like a water balloon and can ripple or wrinkle, but women love the peace of mind that comes with saline in their body. In the event of a saline implant rupture, a woman’s body harmlessly absorbs the sterile saltwater solution. If a silicone gel implant ruptures, the sticky gel substance can get into the body tissues and must be surgically cleaned out. Often referred to as a “silent rupture,” this type of complication can go undetected for years, usually requires an expensive MRI or ultrasound scan to detect, and requires surgery to clean out the silicone gel.

 The IDEAL IMPLANT is made up of a series of shells containing two separate chambers filled with saline. This unique internal structure controls the movement of the saline to eliminate sloshing, gives structural support to prevent collapse and wrinkling, and produces the natural feel and look women expect with silicone gel. Plus, an implant rupture is easily detected by simply looking in the mirror. No risk of “silent rupture” and no need for MRI scans.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Consultation

Dr. Stephens wants his patients to feel educated and informed about all these different breast implant options. He strives to empower women by giving them the support they need to make the right choice for their personal needs and desires. If you have questions or concerns, he takes the time to address those to guarantee you feel listened to and heard. He knows no two women are alike, which is why he takes a very individualized approach to breast augmentation surgery.

 Furthermore, Dr. Stephens uses an expansive array of resources and systems as a way to ensure his patients receive the breast size and shape that best aligns with their goals and expectations. As he describes

“In your consultation, we use the concept of dimensional breast analysis, which describes your breast size and shape as well as the relationship of your breast with your chest and body type. We review the concept of the ‘breast footprint,’ or the base width diameter, of the breast and how this relates to the ideal width of your implant to provide the desired and proportionate result. We review how the different profiles of the breast implants affect the augmented breast size and shape . . . Through the process of measurements, implant trial sizes, and the VECTRA® 3D imaging system, you will leave your consultation with confidence about your implant choice.”
