A Discussion With Dr. Kurley of Advanced Aesthetics Surgery and Laser Center

We spoke with Dr. James Kurley from Advanced Aesthetics Surgery and Laser Center about breast implants. Dr. James Kurley is a plastic surgeon in Champaign, Illinois, who has more than 20 years of experience in cosmetic surgery. His patients appreciate his precision, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail.

Why choose Advanced Aesthetics Surgery and Laser Center?

“You can trust in the experience of both myself and my staff. I’ve worked with my nurse and anesthetist for the past ten years I’ve been in practice, and they are high quality people. We have a fully-equipped, accredited operating room on site that allows us the ability to do your surgery in a private, quiet, yet safe environment. Our wonderful 3D imaging system can give you a better understanding as to what you might expect to achieve post-surgery.”

What procedures does your office focus on?

“The number one thing that I do in my office is breast augmentation, followed very closely by liposuction and tummy tuck. Facial cosmetic surgery is only a small part of my practice. I enjoy it, but my focus is on breast surgery and body contouring.”

What is Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation?

“I specialize in rapid recovery breast augmentation, which allows women to get back to work much more quickly after surgery. This is because of the methods we employ in the recovery process. Many women are able to drive themselves to their appointment the next day, lots of women are hitting tennis balls two, three days after surgery. I’ve even had four personal trainers teach kickboxing classes in the first week after surgery. So this procedure does not have to keep you down for weeks on end, and women can get back to work or get back to driving kids around and enjoying their day-to-day routine.”

How do you help women pick the right breast implant sizes for their body?

“I always give my patients a range and if they choose a volume that’s outside of that range, we have to talk a little bit more about that. I don’t want to exceed the base dimensions of the breast and then create problems that are extremely difficult to correct. Me and my staff will evaluate the breast, get some measurements of the height and the width of the breast in relation to the entire chest. And then we look at the charts and go by the charts in terms of what volume may fit their chest. And having high profile implants has made it somewhat easier to give a little bit better volume adjustment than we did when we only had moderate low profile implants.”

Can you tell us more about the 3D imaging system you use in your office?

“Our system allows us the ability to scan the patient’s torso. The scanning process is relayed to a computer system that then generates a 3D image and it allows us the ability to put in whichever implant we’re thinking about to give the person a better idea of what they can hope to accomplish. We can then take that image and, using Apple TV, relay the image to a false screen TV that we have oriented vertically. The individual can then stand in front of this like they’re standing in front of a mirror, look at their full dimensional torso and turn from side to side and see what they’re going to look like with the image of the implants superimposed over them.”

How do you help guide your patients to make a good implant choice?

“Well, in addition to having the 3D imaging, we give our patients quite a bit of time to go into our try on room where they can use the trial sizes of the range that we’ve suggested and see if it’s giving them the kind of look they’re trying to accomplish. Because a 32C is not the same as a 36C, is not the same as a 34C.”

There are many different breast implants that women can choose from, including silicone gel implants, traditional saline implants, and structured saline implants. What is the best option?

“Well I think that it really depends upon a number of factors. The amount of soft tissue coverage a woman has is the number one most important thing in terms of whether you’re going to get good results or not. If a woman has virtually no soft tissue coverage, she will need a very good saline implant in order to hide rippling and wrinkling that might occur within the shell of the implant.  If she comes in and has a very good soft tissue coverage, then I’m comfortable recommending either traditional saline, structured saline, or silicone gel. If they have virtually no soft tissue coverage, then we need to talk more aggressively about using gel and gel of a greater consistency.”

Many women are concerned about silent rupture. What can you tell us about that?

“A silicone gel implant can rupture and the individual can be completely unaware that it has happened. Some women just don’t want to deal with that uncertainty in their lives, and they’ll choose breast implants filled with saline over silicone gel for that reason alone. With silicone gel, if the implant does rupture, then it’s much more difficult to deal with, because you have to get the sticky gel substance out, and the associated scar capsule that has formed around the implant. Whereas if a saline implant leaks, all you have to do is slip out the old implant and put in the new implant, so the revisional surgery is much less complicated. I want my patients to be comfortable with whichever implant they choose.”

How long have you offered IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants and about how many of your patients have chosen this option?

“I had a patient who called mid-November and said ‘I want the IDEAL IMPLANT.’ And I said ‘Well, tell her I’ll look into it. I’m willing to explore it, and if she’s comfortable with it, we’ll give it a try.’ It was because someone called us specifically asking for IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants that we got involved in the first place. So I thank her for that. This means we have had access to the implants since December of last year, so we have about seven months experience. What I find interesting is that last month, out of the procedures I performed, about 50% of women chose structured saline IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants and 50% picked silicone gel-filled implants.”

Why do you like the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“I’ll be honest, these days if I’m going to put in a saline implant, it’s going to be the IDEAL IMPLANT, because it comes very close in approximation to the feel of silicone gel-filled implants. We were at an event just last week where we gave women the opportunity to feel the different implants. And the women were surprised that a structured saline implant could feel as close as it did to a silicone gel-filled implant. Plus, this implant doesn’t ripple and wrinkle like traditional saline implants do. So, I’m really pleased with the results. And more importantly, the patients who’ve had the implant placed are pleased with the results. My practice has always been about giving individuals choices and options. This implant takes the issue of silent rupture off the table, and still provides women with a very nice, relatively wrinkle free, natural feeling outcome. The IDEAL IMPLANT really gives women the best of both worlds.”

How satisfied are women who have chosen IDEAL IMPLANT for their breast augmentation?

“The women who we’ve placed the implants in have been happy in terms of the issue of feel, the non-issue of rippling and wrinkling, and they’re thrilled they don’t have to worry about silent rupture.”

Breast Augmentation Questions Answered By Dr. Placik

Dr. Otto Placik is a board-certified plastic surgeon with offices in Chicago and Arlington Heights, Illinois. Dr. Placik has performed hundreds of procedures over the years, with primary breast augmentation being one of the most popular. We sat down with Dr. Placik and asked him about his experience as a surgeon as well as his opinion about the newest implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant.

Picking a Breast Implant

Do your patients come in requesting certain types of implants?

“So many people have resources available to them online before they even come in. It’s not unusual for patients to come in saying, “I want silicone under the muscle through a crease incision with a lift,” or, “I want the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant and I see that you’re listed on the website and so I chose you because of that reason.”

What advice do you give women who are trying to decide what size implant they want?

“We try to devote a large amount of the consultation to sizing, but ultimately, it’s very important for them to go home and discuss this with family, to reconsider everything, and come back for a second consultation and to do a more formal sizing appointment. There’s a lot of information given and it’s not unusual that most of the patients will be in our office for two hours for the first visit, which can be exhausting. We want them to let everything percolate in, and think about it for a while. We don’t want anybody making a rush decision.

“One of the most common reasons we know for reoperations is the desire to go larger. Unfortunately, that’s true with patients who choose very small implants and patients who choose what would conventionally be considered very large implants. We have patients who choose implants that range 150[cc] come back and say, “I want to be larger and be 200[cc],” but we also have patients who have some of the largest implants available, which are around 800[cc], 850cc and say that they want to be larger. We try to guide them and let them know that size is one of the most important considerations for reoperations. We generally will encourage them to go larger, but we want to respect their goals and their aesthetic ideal. There are a lot of different options available for sizing and we sometimes want them to try the implants on, do the rice test, do a saline test and wear that size for a little while at home just to get comfortable with it.”

What factors contribute to breast implant cost?

“There are so many factors that go into that. I really want patients to feel comfortable with the prices that we charge before they come in. It’s very common for someone to say, “My breast sizes are even.” Then we measure them and they aren’t even. That means interventions have to be undertaken that will the increase the costs. It may necessitate sizers, different sized implants, or different style implants. It takes more time during surgery and there will, of course, be additional cost. Traditionally speaking, I will tell patients that the vast majority of breast augmentation will be in the $6-8,000 range, but it rarely is less than that. It can sometimes be higher than that depending on what needs to be done, which can include lifts or adjustments such as liposuction or fat transfer.

“There are people who do breast augmentations for less and I urge patients to be very cautious about those lower cost providers. Make sure that they’re board-certified, that they’re doing them in an accredited facility, that you’re being seen by the physician before surgery rather than the patient screen, and that you’re getting good quality implants. Unfortunately, people are using what we call “gray market implants” that are not warrantied. It’s also important to really feel comfortable with your surgeon and the person who’s going to be doing that procedure, and often times the lower cost providers will not allow you to meet the surgeons on the day of surgery.”

Why do you like the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant?

“What I like about the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is that patients who are reluctant to have silicone gel breast implants can have peace of mind. They can have an implant that provides an aesthetic result that’s comparable to silicone gel without having the anxiety of worrying about the maintenance of silicone gel or the potential risk of silent rupture. I can also give my patients reassurance about the long term complication rates, which are lower when compared to either saline or silicone gel.”

Are your patients satisfied after getting the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant?

“The patient satisfaction is high. These are patients who are interested in the procedure and have done their fair share of reading background studies and research. They’re educated and informed, and I think that gives them a lot of peace of mind in the recovery process, and long-term they feel much more comfortable.”

Breast Implant Surgery and Recovery

What do your patients need to know about scarring?

“Scarring is related to both the placement of the incision as well as a person’s own natural wound healing tendencies. I often times will tell patients that their scar is 50% my skill and 50% their response to my injury. When we go with the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant,  we can use a smaller incision. We can use an incision that is almost half the size of what would be required for a comparable sized silicone gel when we use the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant.”

What can you tell us about silent ruptures in silicone gel implants?

“They call silent ruptures ‘silent’ for a reason. The advantage of the silicone gel implants nowadays is it’s a more cohesive gel that sticks together. The disadvantage is when it ruptures, you don’t know that. MRI’s are not necessarily accurate, even though that’s the best non-invasive test we have. And, unfortunately, that test can be very expensive and not provide us with a 100% result. Then we don’t know about the silicone rupture until we go in during a surgery.

“It’s not unusual for me to have to go into somebody for reasons other than rupture, and then we find that coincidentally there was a silent rupture. When we have a silent rupture it changes the scope of the procedure as we go from what would be considered just capsulotomy to a capsulectomy, which is a much more extensive procedure and no one wants to be caught by surprise with it. When we’re talking about primary breast augmentation, these surgeries are not covered by insurance unless you have some very good insurance coverage.”

What should women know about the recovery process in order to get the best results?

“I think knowing about the process ahead of time makes the recovery a lot easier. There are things that we’ve learned over time that any good practitioner knows, which is what we call a rapid recovery process. I have meticulous inter-operative attention to detail, trying to minimize injury. Then, we involve the patient in the recovery process, meaning that we want them to get active and moving.

“In the past, we used to bind people up and not have them move their arms. We found through time that when we get them moving sooner, the recovery is much faster. I provide my patients with a lot of  instructional brochures beforehand and can have them watch this on YouTube as well. I also have an app where people can time their exercises throughout the day. I think getting them involved, having a plan, and knowing what to expect definitely help the recovery process.”

Considering Breast Augmentation? See Why Women are Choosing IDEAL IMPLANT

Women no longer have to sacrifice beauty for peace of mind when receiving a breast augmentation. Did you know there is an additional breast implant option besides saline or silicone gel? The new, innovative IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is now available. The IDEAL IMPLANT offers all the benefits without the compromises of both silicone gel and saline implants.

About the IDEAL IMPLANT

The IDEAL IMPLANT was designed to give women the opportunity to achieve the beautiful look and natural feel many desire from silicone gel implants, yet provide the confidence and security that comes with saline. Its advanced internal structure is comprised of a series of implant shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. It contains no silicone gel and is only made with time-tested and proven breast implant materials.

This technology-driven implant underwent ten years of development, testing, and refinement. In 2014, the IDEAL IMPLANT was approved by the FDA and Health Canada based on the results from a multi-center clinical trial of 502 women and the information provided in volumes of safety, manufacturing, and clinical data. They are manufactured in the USA at a FDA-inspected facility using advanced robotics to ensure greater product consistency and high quality standards.

The Benefits of a “Structured Implant”

No other breast implant is like the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. In the video above, Dr. Robert Hamas explains why he invented a “structured implant”:

“I had an idea that maybe I could make an implant that had only saline in it, but have the natural feel and look of a silicone gel implant. And what I developed with the IDEAL IMPLANT was the concept of a series of shells nested inside each other that support the outer shell. So the woman now can have the advantages of a silicone gel implant in terms of natural look and feel, but the advantages of a saline implant in that there’s only saline in her body in case it ever ruptures, and she has the peace of mind of every day being able to look in the mirror and know that her implant is intact.”

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Hamas sought out to create a breast implant that would provide the best of both worlds—one that would bring together the top features and positive characteristics from silicone gel and saline implants. For years, he cared for his patients through the aftermath of ruptured silicone gel implants or the dissatisfaction of unnatural feeling saline implants. Dr. Hamas knew women wanted and needed another option.

A Breast Augmentation with the IDEAL IMPLANT

The unique design of the IDEAL IMPLANT helps control the movement of the saline chambers to mitigate sloshing and eliminate what is known as the “water-hammer” effect. The internal structure also gives support to the upper pole of the implant so it does not collapse when upright. Other saline implants cannot accomplish this due to their lack of internal structure. Instead, they act like a water balloon and, when held upright, tend to wrinkle under the skin as the upper portion of the implant collapses. These saline implants ultimately do not replicate the realistic look or natural feel of breast tissue.

With a “structured implant,” women do not need to worry about wrinkling. The IDEAL IMPLANT is constructed to reduce wrinkling and rippling, and, in turn, provide the volume and projection women have come to expect from a silicone gel implant. To further create a genuine look, the outside edges of the IDEAL IMPLANT have been lowered to conform to the natural curve of a woman’s chest.

The IDEAL IMPLANT has adjustable volume as well. This allows plastic surgeons to better meet the physical goals of their patients. Before a breast augmentation procedure, women can discuss with their surgeon the implant size that would best fit the outcome they desire. This also means surgeons can use a smaller incision with the IDEAL IMPLANT compared to silicone gel implants. Because silicone gel implants are filled when manufactured, they can be damaged if inserted or forced through a small incision.

Avoiding the Risk of “Silent Rupture”

A “silent rupture” only occurs following a breast augmentation using silicone gel implants. Silicone gel implants can rupture at any time and begin to leak sticky silicone gel into the surrounding tissues of a woman’s body. If this happens, the implant and the leaked silicone gel must be surgically removed. The only way to detect this kind of rupture is by an MRI scan. A breast examination cannot conclude whether a silicone gel implant is intact. Because of this, the FDA recommends all women with silicone gel breast implants receive an MRI every two years to determine if there is a “silent rupture.”

There is no risk of a “silent rupture” with IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants. A woman can easily detect whether her implants are intact by simply looking in the mirror, meaning no expensive MRI scans are needed to discover a rupture. Plus, the innovative design of the IDEAL IMPLANT provides structural strength to the implant giving it a lower rupture rate compared to silicone gel implants. And if it does rupture, the saline is safely absorbed by the body. The peace of mind that comes with saline is why so many women trust the IDEAL IMPLANT.

Choosing a Plastic Surgeon

IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants are only available to an exclusive group of plastic surgeons. A plastic surgeon must be board-certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery to be able to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT. Our surgeons stay up-to-date on the latest implant technology in order to provide superior patient care and high quality work. They believe in educating women and allowing them to play a proactive role in the breast enhancement process. Women no longer need to settle for less. The IDEAL IMPLANT is now available through a select network of highly trained plastic surgeons throughout the U.S. and Canada.

No Compromise Needed

When receiving a breast enhancement with the IDEAL IMPLANT, you do not have to compromise beauty for peace of mind. It combines the natural look and feel of silicone gel with the safety and security of saline. The internal structure:

  • Reduces wrinkling and rippling common with saline implants
  • Supports the upper pole to prevent collapse when upright
  • Controls the movement of the saline to eliminate sloshing
  • Creates a youthful shape and projection
  • Allows for adjusting the volume
  • Requires a smaller incision than silicone gel implants
  • Conforms to the natural curve of a woman’s chest
  • Requires no MRI scan to detect implant rupture
  • Carries no risk of a “silent rupture”
  • Has a lower rupture rate

The IDEAL Way

Women need options. As the first “structured implant,” the IDEAL IMPLANT is an option that addresses the concerns and drawbacks many women have about silicone gel and saline breast implants. Women should play a proactive role in the breast augmentation process to be able to make an educated decision before moving forward with a breast enhancement.

When an Implant Ruptures

The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant has no risk of “silent rupture.” Ruptures with silicone gel implants are considered “silent” since an MRI is the only way to detect them. If a rupture occurs, the sticky silicone gel begins to leak into surrounding tissues of the body requiring surgery to remove. The FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants receive an MRI every two years. When it comes to saline implants, the body easily and safely absorbs the saline if an implant ruptures. Women can detect their IDEAL IMPLANT is intact at all times by simply looking in the mirror. No MRI is needed.

Want Breast Implants? Dr. Paul Leahy Offers the New IDEAL IMPLANT

Undergoing breast enhancement surgery, or receiving breast implants, is a big decision. There are a variety of factors to consider and it is important for women to be aware of all their options. Dr. Paul Leahy helps his patients understand the difference between saline implants, silicone gel implants, and the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants.

The Risk of Rupture

In the video above, Dr. Paul Leahy discusses the advantages of the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. He first explains what happens if a breast implant ruptures. When silicone gel implants leak, the sticky silicone gel gets stuck to the surrounding body tissue. This is known as a “silent rupture” since it can only be detected by an MRI. The FDA recommends that women with silicone gel implants receive an MRI every other year to determine whether their implants are intact. An MRI is not required to detect rupture in saline implants or the IDEAL IMPLANT. Rather, women can know their implants are intact by simply looking in the mirror. In case of rupture, the body easily and safely absorbs the saline.

The Internal Structure of the IDEAL IMPLANT

Breast implants come in all shapes and sizes. Dr. Paul Leahy further explains how IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants utilize a unique design to offer both the benefits of silicone gel and the safety of saline. The IDEAL IMPLANT is comprised of a series of shells that hold two separate chambers of saline. This advanced internal structure is designed to:

  • Help control the movement of the saline and eliminate sloshing, known as the “water-hammer” effect
  • Reduce wrinkling and rippling
  • Produce a youthful look with a realistic feel
  • Allow for a smaller incision scar than with silicone gel implants
  • Give support to the upper pole to prevent collapse when upright
  • Provide surgeons the ability to adjust volume based on patient preferences

Additionally in the video, you can learn more about the rate of “capsular contracture” that occurs with the IDEAL IMPLANT.

Breast Augmentation Surgery: What to Expect

How can you get the best results from your breast augmentation? Before going under the knife you should know what to expect before, during, and after surgery. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will answer any questions you have about the procedure, recovery, and your implants, such as what  maintenance is required for saline-filled implants vs silicone gel implants (often referred to as simply “silicone breast implants”). Read below for Dr. Scott Greenberg’s explanation of what to expect during your pre-surgery consultation.

Breast Augmentation Consultation With Dr. Scott Greenberg

You will be faced with several choices before your breast augmentation and it is important to make decisions based not only on how you will look, but also how much maintenance your choices require, and how your choices affect your peace of mind. For example, the FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants (“silicone breast implants”) get an MRI every few years to check for a “silent rupture.” This cost is typically not covered by insurance companies. Some women feel uncomfortable with the fact that their implant may have ruptured without their knowledge. Be sure to talk through these types of concerns with your surgeon before moving forward with the procedure.

Dr. Greenberg explains what to expect during your initial consultation:

“We will review the procedure in quite some detail. We’ll talk about the types of incisions, different types of implants that are available, as well as whether or not to put the implant above or below the muscle. We’ll also review the pre-operative process, as well as recovery and your expected downtime. Our discussion will be followed by a physical examination where I’ll make a recommendation as to the best technique to give you the best result possible.”

“Phenomenal” Results from Breast Surgery in Newport Beach

A Southern California woman named Meredith recently appeared on the television show The Doctors to discuss her experience with post-pregnancy breast surgery in Newport Beach, and why she is so happy with her choice o the IDEAL IMPLANT for her breast augmentation. Meredith, a mother of two, explains why she thinks women who are considering breast surgery, or a combination of procedures known as a “mommy makeover,” are great candidates for the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. The Doctors is a nationally-syndicated daytime talk show created by Dr. Phil McGraw that focuses on health and medical issues, as a team of medical professionals and guests discuss health-related topics and answer questions from viewers they may be too embarrassed to ask their own doctors.

A Natural Feel, Without the Risk of Silent Rupture

Meredith, like many women, was disappointed with the loss of volume in her breast tissue after breastfeeding her kids.  She wanted a return to her pre-pregnancy shape and her mother-in-law recommended IDEAL IMPLANT. Meredith wanted saline-filled implants, stating she was “being cautious . . . being a mom.” She understood that in case of a rupture, unlike silicone gel implants, the saline (a sterile salt water solution) would be safely absorbed into her body and she would know immediately by just looking in the mirror.

By contrast, silicone gel is not absorbed into the body but remains around the implant. Because of this, the rupture is a “silent rupture,” not detectable without expensive medical imaging, typically not covered by insurance. When a silicone gel implant ruptures, more extensive surgery is required to remove the silicone gel that is leaking into the surrounding tissue. While silicone gel implants tend to look more natural than traditional saline implants, the IDEAL IMPLANTS unique structured design controls the saline, resulting in a natural look and feel similar to silicone gel, but with the peace of mind of only saline inside.

When Meredith heard about IDEAL IMPLANT she found what she calls “the perfect solution.” Six years after getting IDEAL IMPLANT she says they’re “phenomenal” Watch the video for before and after images of Meredith and see for yourself why she’s so happy with her striking results.

Mountain View Breast Augmentation Cost Explained

Curious about Mountain View breast augmentation cost? Many doctors have a cost breakdown, but often this includes only upfront costs and does not mention long-term maintenance costs. Dr. Robert Lowen, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Mountain View, now offers the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant because he knows many patients have concerns about long-term maintenance, appearance, and peace of mind.

Maintenance Costs of Silicone Gel Implants

Silicone gel implants are a popular choice for many women around the country because they give women natural feeling results. Silicone gel, however, carries the risk of a “silent rupture.” If the implant ruptures, you can only tell through an MRI. The FDA recommends women get these expensive procedures every few years to detect a rupture. Insurance companies do not always pay for the MRIs, so women are left paying for this procedure out of pocket. Also, the rupture rate and capsular contracture rate of the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is lower over a seven-year period than the silicone gel implants. If you’re researching Mountain View breast augmentation cost, you need to factor in these frequent MRIs and the potential for ruptures and capsular contracture before you move forward with a silicone gel implant.

Peace of Mind, Low Maintenance

The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant gives women the natural feel and beautiful results of silicone-gel implants and the peace of mind of saline implants. Because of its internal structure, the IDEAL IMPLANT has stability and does not ripple easily like other saline-filled implants.
