Once you decide to have breast augmentation, it opens the door to many other choices you will need to make. Options for the material, size, and even the placement of your breast implants can lead patients to feel unsure about which is the best fit for them. However, with a little research, you can be on your way to understanding how to make those important decisions. Finding the right surgeon is also crucial as you navigate through breast augmentation preparation. Dr. Kevin Tehrani is a renowned, board-certified plastic surgeon serving New York patients with unsurpassed care and expertise. From finding the perfect breast implant cc size to getting exceptional results, Dr. Tehrani is committed to the highest quality of patient care.  

When Art Meets Surgery

At his New York practice, Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kevin Tehrani’s patients enjoy unsurpassed care and results. Dr. Tehrani believes plastic surgery to be “the ultimate expression of art in surgery.” It is with this mindset that he has helped his patients achieve their aesthetic goals for over 15 years. Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Dr. Tehrani has extensive training and qualifications to provide top notch care to his patients. 

Dr. Tehrani earned his medical degree at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and was the Chief Resident in General Surgery during his residency at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York. He served as Chief Resident yet again during his plastic and reconstructive surgery training at Kansas University Medical Center. Dr. Tehrani also served as Lieutenant Commander in Naval Reserves Medical Corps, and volunteers to help children with congenital and acquired defects in underdeveloped nations. 

In addition to serving clients at both his Manhattan and Long Island plastic surgery offices, Dr. Tehrani is Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. He is a member of several local and national societies, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Tehrani has presented both in the U.S. and abroad at major medical symposia.

Aristocrat Plastic Surgery

Dr. Tehrani and his staff at Aristocrat Plastic Surgery strive relentlessly for the highest level of patient satisfaction. If you have questions about finding the perfect breast implant cc, they will help you with your selection. Your personal aesthetic goals are attainable with the care and expertise at Dr. Tehrani’s surgical facilities. From the beautiful waiting room to the state-of-the-art technology and equipment used, patients know they are in the best possible hands throughout their surgical experience. Dr. Tehrani has been named by his peers to be one of the Top 10 Plastic Surgeons in New York by both Top10ofNewYork, and the America Top 10.

Advanced Technique in Breast Augmentation

Dr. Tehrani also specializes in transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA), in which implants are placed through a very small incision inside the rim of the navel. He is one of just a few New York City surgeons to successfully use the TUBA technique on a routine basis. Dr. Tehrani can even insert some types of breast implants through other existing scars, including those resulting from an appendectomy, gallbladder surgery, or C-section. Because the breast implant cc is filled after insertion into the breast, IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants can be used in patients who desire the TUBA surgical technique. Dr. Tehrani explains:   

“Patients who desire a breast enlargement procedure but do not want noticible scars can benefit from this type of implant. IDEAL IMPLANTS can be inserted under the armpit with an inconspicuous hidden scar. With no visible scarring, no one will know the patient underwent a breast augmentation procedure.” 

New York City’s Preferred IDEAL IMPLANT Surgeon

As one of the top plastic surgeons in New York, Dr. Tehrani is proud to offer the latest breast implant technology to his patients. Aristocrat Plastic Surgery is one of the exclusive places available to find the IDEAL IMPLANT. Dr. Tehrani is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon, meaning he has an increased level of experience with this implant technology. The IDEAL IMPLANT is a saline-filled breast implant with a unique structured design. Women who love the natural look and feel of silicone gel implants but also want peace of mind will find exactly what they’re looking for in the IDEAL IMPLANT. Whether you want a smaller breast implant cc size or a larger one, IDEAL IMPLANT is the only one to offer beauty without compromise.

IDEAL IMPLANT Advantages 

One major advantage of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it comes with zero risk for silent rupture. When a silicone gel breast implant leaks, there are no noticeable signs or symptoms. The best way for a woman to know whether her silicone gel implants are intact is to have an MRI or ultrasound scan. IDEAL IMPLANT patients never have to worry about the integrity of their breast implants. If a rupture were to occur, it would be immediately obvious and the saline could be harmlessly absorbed into the body. Surgery is still necessary to remove a ruptured IDEAL IMPLANT, but the process is much simpler than the removal of a silicone gel implant that has leaked into the breast. Silicone gel is a sticky substance, and requires a complex surgical procedure to ensure its complete removal from the body along with the surrounding scar capsule. 

No other breast implant compares to the IDEAL IMPLANT in terms of beauty and peace of mind. Dr. Tehrani’s patients who choose IDEAL IMPLANT are choosing technology that significantly outperforms other major breast implant brands. According to the latest data from 10 year FDA Core clinical trials (primary augmentation), IDEAL IMPLANT has lower rates of both rupture and capsular contracture than silicone gel implant implants. 

For example, one silicone gel implant has a 12.1% capsular contracture rate and a 24.2% rate of rupture over 10 years. At a 6.6% rate of capsular contracture and 3.7% rate of rupture over 10 years, IDEAL IMPLANT provides a much lower risk factor for women. Breast implant technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has too.         

Breast Implant cc Before and After Photos

Looking at before and after photos of other breast augmentation patients can help you visualize the end result you want. It can also help clearly communicate your goals to your doctor. Dr. Tehrani’s website features a gallery of patient before and after photos to help you make informed decisions. Below is a photo of one of Dr. Tehrani’s breast augmentation patients who chose IDEAL IMPLANT. This woman was wearing a B-cup before her surgery, and wanted to go one size up. Dr. Tehrani performed bilateral breast augmentation using 340cc IDEAL IMPLANTS.

Once you select a well-qualified plastic surgeon and an implant that offers both beauty and security, finding the right breast implant cc size will come naturally. Dr. Tehrani’s additional experience with IDEAL IMPLANT makes him an excellent choice for your New York City breast augmentation.

Dr. Newman Answer Questions About Structured, Silicone Gel, and Unstructured Saline Breast Implants

When you are planning your breast augmentation, finding a trustworthy, board-certified plastic surgeon should be at the top of your to-do list. You should find someone you feel comfortable with, who answers all your questions, offers the latest breast implant technology, and is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. For women in the Los Angeles area, Dr. Michael Newman is that surgeon. Dr. Newman combines his eye for aesthetics with careful surgical techniques to help women achieve their goals. He also believes that every woman should have access to all the options available for enhancement, and be educated about what each option entails. We spoke to Dr. Newman about why he offers silicone gel, unstructured saline breast implants, and the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, and how he helps patients choose the best option for their bodies and lifestyles.

Can you tell us about your experience performing breast augmentation and other cosmetic procedures?

“I’m a board certified plastic surgeon. I’ve got offices in Beverly Hills and Torrance, and I book locations in Los Angeles. I’m part of a four person plastic surgery group, and I’m also a clinical associate professor at UCLA where we work with some of the residents and teach them the principles about plastic surgery. In my practice, we really have a broad spectrum of care. Probably the most common thing that we do is breast augmentation, but we certainly do the full spectrum of other types of surgery as well. Some types of breast reconstruction, and then a variety of cosmetic surgery: liposuction, fat transfer, facial surgery, et cetera. Breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures performed nationally every year, and we get a lot of people coming in asking about breast augmentation.”

Why do you offer IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant, silicone gel, and unstructured saline breast implants?

“When it comes to implants, I think it’s important for patients to know about every implant that’s available. And so I think it’s almost a disservice to not offer an implant to patients. So I tell all of my colleagues that they should be able to at least speak about and offer every type of implant to every patient and help them make an informed decision as to which implant is the best for them. 

“We are fortunate in our group to be able to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT to patients. And we’re very excited to have that available, because it offers so many advantages. Those advantages include things like a very low capsular contracture rate, very low rupture rate, no silent rupture, and incredibly natural feel and look, and tremendous satisfaction for both patients and physicians.”

During a typical consultation do you show patients structured, silicone gel, and unstructured saline breast implants?

“When patients come in consulting about breast augmentation, we’ll lay all the implants out on the table, literally, so that they can feel every implant, we’ll show them different cohesivities for the different silicone gel implants, show them an unstructured saline breast implant, and then show them an IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. And, in addition, what we’ll do is, sometimes, place a little covering over the implants and kind of do a blind test and tell them, ‘Well, why don’t you feel each one of these, and we’ll mix them up a little bit, let us know which one feels the most natural to you.’

“And typically a lot of patients end up asking, ‘Well, what do most people do? I’m confused with all these choices, which one do most people select?’ or they’ll ask, ‘Well, which one would you recommend to your friend or your family member?’

“The most common choice in our practice is silicone gel. But then there is a subset of patients that decide that they want the safety of knowing if their implant is ruptured. And so, for those patients, we talk about a water-filled implant, and my favorite saline or water-filled implant is the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant. So we definitely recommend that to patients if they’re asking about what I would prefer for my family member or my friend, but we also want to give them the choices so they don’t feel pressured in any way. They should be making the choice that’s best for them.”

Do you find patients who choose IDEAL IMPLANT over unstructured saline breast implants or silicone gel to be happy with their choice?

“Patients that get an IDEAL IMPLANT for breast augmentation are usually very happy with their results. They often come in asking about safety as a major concern, and they also are very in touch with their bodies. So patients that choose IDEAL IMPLANT are usually very athletic, very aware of their bodies and their health, often very physically active. And I’ve had all of them, really, without regret say that was the right implant for them.

“One of our office managers who was involved in quoting the whole patient interaction, saw all these happy patients and she wanted to get surgery. And she actually elected to get an IDEAL IMPLANT, because she saw how incredible the results were and how happy the patients were. She heard about how safe the implant is and how it’s such low risk. So I think there really can’t be a stronger endorsement than seeing one of your own employees choose that implant as the best implant for them.”

How the IDEAL IMPLANT® Significantly Outperforms Silicone Breast Implants

Breast augmentation continues to be a popular cosmetic surgery procedure, with just over 193,000 breast augmentations performed in 2020. While silicone breast implants and unstructured saline implants are still viable options, women can access the latest breast implant technology when they choose the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. The IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel for primary augmentation over ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture. Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has, too!

In Beachwood, Ohio, Dr. Steven Goldman is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience who specializes in body contouring and breast augmentation. Dr. Goldman was  recently recognized as an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with this advanced implant technology. He’s excited to be among a select group of board-certified plastic surgeons to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT to his patients.

Why Women Choose the IDEAL IMPLANT Over Silicone Breast Implants

The IDEAL IMPLANT is designed to give women a beautiful look and peace of mind. It is a structured implant composed of a series of nested shells that surround the saline, keeping it in place for less wrinkling and rippling. The edges of the implant have also been lowered for a more natural contouring to the chest wall. The IDEAL IMPLANT also allows your surgeon to make smaller incisions because they are not pre-filled. This unique design means women can achieve a natural look without noticeable scars.

There’s also no need to worry about a “silent rupture” when you pick the IDEAL IMPLANT. A quick glance in the mirror will tell you that your implants are intact. “Saline-filled implants are easier to follow for leaks long-term because saline-filled implants deflate, and a patient sees the deflation,” says Dr. Goldman. “Whereas silicone, if it leaks, may not actually look any different.”

In a 2017 Independent Survey, “Women’s Preferences in Breast Implants,” 98% of women reported they would be concerned about silent rupture with silicone gel implants. The FDA recommends that women who choose silicone breast implants obtain an MRI or ultrasound scan every 2-3 years after augmentation in order to detect any silent ruptures.

Women like the IDEAL IMPLANT because it has an extremely low rupture rate of only 3.7% over ten years, for primary augmentations. That’s compared to leading silicone gel implants, where 8.7 to 24.2% of patients experienced a rupture and had to have their implant replaced.

Another common breast implant complication is capsular contracture. Only 6.6% of women with the IDEAL IMPLANT experienced capsular contracture over ten years, for primary augmentations, compared to women with silicone gel implants who dealt with it far more often at rates of 12.1-18.9%. With the IDEAL IMPLANT, you’ll have increased peace of mind knowing your implants are less likely to rupture or develop capsular contracture within the first ten years.

Dr. Goldman’s patients appreciate his “Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation” process that allows them to get back to their normal lives as safely and quickly as possible.

“I highly recommend Dr. Goldman. Chose him for a breast augmentation and couldn’t be happier with both the results and recovery. I was walking the same day, actually walked several blocks that evening. I also only used the pain medication the first night, after that there I didn’t need anything for pain. I only missed two days of work. No bleeding, scars are barely visible. This surgery and the recovery period went so much better than I anticipated. Dr. Goldman and his entire staff are such a pleasure to work with, kind, patient and friendly. I’m five months out and my only regret is not having the surgery done sooner!” – Realself.com review from daum

How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last? Why the IDEAL IMPLANT® is a Great Long-Term Option

Last year, despite a worldwide pandemic, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that just over 193,000 breast augmentations were performed. Many women elect to have breast augmentation because it can restore lost volume after breastfeeding and pregnancy, or they just want to enhance what they already have. Before choosing to have this procedure, you may be asking questions like, “how long does breast augmentation last?” While breast implants may not be “lifetime devices”, the good news is that they last a lot longer than they used to. “. . . In many cases, breast implants can remain in good shape for 20 years or more.”

Women can take advantage of the latest breast implant technology when they choose the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. The IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel for primary augmentation over ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture. Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has, too!

Voted “The State’s Best Plastic Surgeon 6 Years in a Row”, Dr. Donen Davis in Columbia, South Carolina was recently recognized as an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with this new implant technology. He’s excited to be among a select group of board-certified plastic surgeons to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT® to his patients.

How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last with IDEAL IMPLANT?

The IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured implant, uniquely designed to give women the look and upper pole fullness they want. A series of nested shells surrounds the saline filling of the implant, keeping it from sloshing around and making the implant behave similarly to a silicone gel implant.

Only 3.7% percent of patients experienced a rupture over ten years with the IDEAL IMPLANT. With silicone gel implants, 8.7% to 24.2% of patients experienced a rupture and had to have their implant replaced.

You’ll also never need to worry about a “silent rupture” when you pick the IDEAL IMPLANT. A quick glance in the mirror will tell you that your implants are intact. The FDA recommends that patients who choose silicone gel-filled implants obtain an MRI or ultrasound scan at five to six years after augmentation, and every two to three years after that in order to detect any silent ruptures. This is an out-of-pocket cost, so many women don’t schedule these imaging appointments as routinely as they should.

About Capsular Contracture

Sometimes breast implants don’t last as long as they were designed to due to another issue called capsular contracture. This is where the “capsule” of scar tissue formed around the breast implant becomes unusually hard and starts to contract around the implant. This can cause the breast to look swollen and distorted and also cause pain in some cases. Only 6.6% of women with the IDEAL IMPLANT experienced capsular contracture over ten years, compared to women with silicone gel implants who dealt with it far more often at rates of 12.1-18.9%.

After going through breast augmentation surgery and several weeks of recovery, the last thing you want is a breast implant that’s going to cause you expensive problems down the road. Statistics prove that you can feel confident in your choice when you pick the IDEAL IMPLANT.

Benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT

The IDEAL IMPLANT is one of the best breast implant brands on the market because it is a structured breast implant comprised of a series of nested shells and filled with a saline solution. Dr. Claytor recommends this implant to his patients because it feels and looks natural but offers lasting peace of mind with the safety of saline and the features it provides. One of the safety benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it has a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture than other implants, like the silicone gel breast implants on the market. In the small chance that it does rupture, the saline inside the IDEAL IMPLANT is harmlessly absorbed by the body.

A recent study showed that the IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel implants for primary augmentation over ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and of capsular contracture. The study showed that the risk of implant rupture or deflation with IDEAL IMPLANT was 3.7% over ten years for primary augmentation, compared with  silicone gel implants at 8.7-24.2%. In addition, IDEAL IMPLANT has a 6.6% rate of capsular contracture, compared with silicone gel implants at 12.1-18.9%. The IDEAL IMPLANT allows women to instantly detect deflation just by looking in the mirror, while silicone gel implants require regular MRI or ultrasound scans to detect rupture.  Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has too.

This Breast Implant Chart Outlines the Benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT®

It’s 2021, and your options for breast augmentation have changed along with everything else in the world. In the past, silicone gel implants and unstructured saline implants were the only options women had to achieve a fuller, youthful appearance. Now patients everywhere are requesting IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants for their unique structure and beautiful results. On this breast implant chart, you can look at how this new implant stacks up against the other current options out there. You’ll see that the IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel for primary augmentation at ten years with both a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture. Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has, too!

In Brea, California, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin has over 25 years of experience performing cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, and was even dubbed the “breast expert” by People magazine. Dr. Corbin was recently recognized as an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon due to his extensive expertise working with this new implant technology. He’s excited to be among a select group of board-certified plastic surgeons to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT to his patients.

The IDEAL IMPLANT: An IDEAL Option

On the IDEAL IMPLANT breast implant chart, you’ll see that the IDEAL IMPLANT had only a

3.7% rate of rupture over ten years after primary augmentation. That’s compared with silicone gel implants which range from 8.7-24.2%.

While silicone gel-filled implants may look good, they also come with a risk of silent rupture. A silent rupture is when a breast implant tears or breaks and you don’t know that it’s happened. The FDA recommends women who choose silicone gel-filled implants get an MRI or ultrasound scan at five-to-six years after receiving their implants and then every two-to-three years after that so they can check for silent ruptures. These imaging procedures are expensive (anywhere between $400-$1400) and so many women just can’t afford them and end up developing larger issues with their breast implants down the road.

The issue of silent rupture is nonexistent with the IDEAL IMPLANT, which gives many women increased peace of mind. Instead of going in for an MRI or ultrasound scan, all you have to do is look in the mirror to see if your IDEAL IMPLANT is intact or has ruptured. The IDEAL IMPLANT’s unique two-chamber design means that even if you do experience a rupture, the implant won’t deflate completely and you can get it replaced at a convenient time.

Another common breast implant complication is capsular contracture, where the “capsule” of scar tissue formed around the breast implant becomes unusually hard and starts to contract around the implant. This can cause the breast to look swollen and distorted and also cause pain in some cases. As you can see on the breast implant chart, the IDEAL IMPLANT has a low 6.6% rate of capsular contracture with primary augmentations, compared with silicone gel implants at 12.1-18.9%.

The way an IDEAL IMPLANT feels to the touch is also incredibly similar to the feel of a silicone gel-filled breast implant. Because the IDEAL IMPLANT is a saline-filled implant, many patients worry that the saline will slosh around like it tends to do with unstructured saline implants. But the series of shells that surround the saline filling give the IDEAL IMPLANT its structure, keeping the saline in place and resulting in an implant that feels natural, not like a water balloon.

Bottom line: The IDEAL IMPLANT allows you to achieve the natural look and feel that you can get with silicone gel breast implants, with the bonus of never having to worry about silent rupture. It’s a win-win situation.

Dr. Sattler Provides Perfectly Natural Breast Implants in 2021

The breast implants of 2021 are more natural looking than ever before. Women who go to Dr. Sattler at Sound Plastic Surgery in Seattle are confident that they are going to get breast implants that look and feel natural for their individual body and make them feel amazing. Now that he offers the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, there’s no longer as much of a patient concern about safety risks and Dr. Sattler has the ability to adjust volume for a more symmetrical look. The IDEAL IMPLANT has lower rates of rupture and capsular contracture when compared to other implant options, which is why surgeons, like Dr. Sattler, love to recommend it to their patients. Get to know more about him, why he loves being a plastic surgeon, and what to expect if you select him for your breast augmentation. 

Tell us a little bit about you and your practice.

“I’m Scott Saddler, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Seattle, Washington. I’ve been in practice for 13 years and, in conjunction with Joshua Cooper, another board-certified plastic surgeon, for seven years at our combined practice, which is called Sound Plastic Surgery. We are in Northeast Seattle, the heart of residential Seattle, a little bit north of the University of Washington. We operate at three different certified ambulatory surgery centers where we do all of our cosmetic breast surgery. Through the years, cosmetic breast surgery has been the number one thing that we do. We probably, between Josh and myself, do about five breast augmentations a week. I started using IDEAL IMPLANTS for the first time about two and a half years ago.”

Have you had any patients specifically ask for the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“I had a patient request the IDEAL IMPLANT specifically who had done way more research than I had. She just appeared in our clinic and wanted it and was motivated, so we placed them. I like to think I was one of the first people in Seattle to use the IDEAL IMPLANT. It fills the gap between patients that want an unstructured saline implant and patients that want the look and feel of a cohesive silicone gel implant. When patients want an IDEAL IMPLANT, they ask for it by name. So we’ve used several and patients look great. It is very difficult for me to differentiate between a patient that’s been augmented with silicone gel implants and the IDEAL IMPLANT. I have to reread my operative note if I see them a year or two down the line.”

Do you present the IDEAL IMPLANT as an option during a consultation?

“We do present it as an option now that we’ve used enough of them, and patients seem happy with them. Traditionally the discussion was either a single lumen, unstructured saline implant versus a smooth round silicone gel implant. Now, we do offer and recommend the use of a structured IDEAL IMPLANT. There’s a segment of patients that really feel motivated to use saline-filled implants, just based on their personal preference and the risk spectrum that they perceive that they’re exposed to when they’re undergoing augmentation.. I can tell you it’s been a long time since I placed a single lumen, unstructured saline implant. I just think the disadvantages are pretty substantial compared to the IDEAL multi-chambered implants.”

What does a typical breast implant consultation look like?

“It’s always part of my consultation to introduce the different types of implants. I like to give a brief history of implant use, at least since the early 2000s, because I think it puts a lot of the current choices in perspective. We pull out the smooth, round silicone gel implants and I always pull out a shape texture just to show people what we don’t use any more and explain a few of the things that I think are troublesome about those implants. We also have an IDEAL IMPLANT that’s prefilled that we bring out and patients can compare them to the smooth, round silicone gel implant.”

How does a typical breast augmentation procedure go? 

“Breast augmentations are one of the types of operations where there’s a variety of things that can be done incorrectly. Over the years we’ve sorted out what delivers good results for our patients. We use a, for lack of a better analogy, Toyota improvement model, where there’s certain steps that we’ll always do because we know that it really improves our outcomes. 

“The first thing I tell patients is that we always do this operation under general anesthesia. I feel the operation is accomplished efficiently in my hands in about 50 minutes under a general anesthetic. I always supplement that with local anesthesia so the patient wakes up comfortably. We always use a submuscular or dual plane position for any implant that we use because of the advantages or the lower risk of capsular contracture. 

“We use an inframammary incision that I can hide right in the fold beneath the breast which provides a natural shadow and crease. After a year, that scar is basically invisible-you really have to go looking for it to find it. We never use a periareolar incision, nor do we use the transaxillary incision. I think there’s some problems with those scar positions, especially when you compare capsular contracture data to incision placement. An inframammary scar has lower capsular contracture rate than the other techniques.

“We do preoperative implant sizing with our female staff members to have a patient sort out what volume they’re going to use. We know when we go to the OR what implant volume we’re using. We always use, intraoperatively, a triple antibiotic solution, which has been shown to reduce the rate of implant infection and capsular contracture, pretty substantially. We don’t use a surgical drain. In the case of silicone gel implants, we use a Keller funnel. In the case of an IDEAL IMPLANT, there’s no need to do that. So we make a plan and then we execute the plan and we finish the operation really efficiently. Patients go home the same day and we see them back within a week of their surgery.”

How does a breast lift or breast revision work? 

“For breast lift patients, we generally do a primary mastopexy augmentation which is a combined lift and augmentation. Same augmentation technique as mentioned above with a submuscular implant. The lift generally depends on how much ptosis or sagging the patient has, but it’s generally a superior pedicle vertical pillar technique, which I think provides some nice breast shaping. It eliminates lower pole sagging. Generally, we can get away with a lollipop type scar. Sometimes for patients with a lot of extra breast skin or breast tissue, we end up using a Wise pattern or an anchor pattern scar. So primary mastopexy augmentation is our go-to technique, single stage. I think we do a nice job getting good symmetry. I tend to recommend smaller implant volumes for breast lift patients.

“Placing an implant in the setting of a breast lift is really there just to impart some upper pole volume where patients don’t have it. We tend to stay away from large implants when we do a breast lift because of the tension on our breast lift wound closures. I make some pretty specific recommendations for implant volume for breast lift patients.”

Why did you choose to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“I like IDEAL IMPLANTS because there’s a little bit more precision in volume that I can add to the implant. There’s two chambers and we can modify the volume in the anterior chamber to give the breast a bit more volume compared to the opposite side. In the IDEAL IMPLANTS I’ve done, that’s been one advantage where I could get a little bit of a better volume match compared to someone that’s using equal sized silicone gel implants. I’ve had a few patients in the past where I’ve used differentially sized silicone gel implants, and I’m always a little leery of doing that because the diameters of the implants themselves are different and therefore, you’re imparting a new asymmetry onto the patient. You’re trying to get more symmetric, but you’re using an asymmetric implant. The IDEAL IMPLANT, to my knowledge, doesn’t really change a whole lot in diameter if you overfill them, which is a good thing.”

What type of patients usually request the IDEAL IMPLANT?

“The patients that choose IDEAL IMPLANT have approached us and specifically requested the IDEAL IMPLANT. I think the decision to use an IDEAL IMPLANT was made before they entered our office, probably because of online research and the patient’s perception that a saline-filled implant is safer than a silicone gel implant. Patients come in with that mindset and I think the IDEAL IMPLANT is a perfectly safe device. I’ve gotten some nice results with IDEAL IMPLANTS. I’m increasingly, whole-heartedly recommending that implant when patients want them, especially if they have a bit of asymmetry that otherwise might be tricky to try to correct with differentially sized implants. My recommendation to some patients is not to try to chase perfect breast symmetry in terms of volume, because sometimes that can create other issues. However, if their asymmetry is mild, I think it’s worth using an implant, like an IDEAL IMPLANT, where we can actually micro adjust the volumes.”

Why do patients select you over other plastic surgeons in their area?

“We have really good reviews because our patients really like us. I think we have an aesthetic in our practice that is really natural. In other words, most of the patients in our market, which is metropolitan Seattle, don’t want a really augmented look. I’ve never really spent a whole lot of time pushing implants that I know will make a patient look augmented. The majority of our patients want to look very natural. Most of our sizing techniques are designed to deliver that really natural result. We pay a lot of attention to breast measurements in order to get really reproducible and as symmetric as possible results. I think you really have to pay attention to breast dimensions and overall tissue dynamics.

“You won’t get predictable results if you don’t really pay close attention to those numbers. Both my partner and I are board-certified plastic surgeons. We believe that’s the pinnacle of cosmetic surgery expertise in the world, actually. We’d like to think that our patients seek us out based on that. We’re also both nice guys, we’re both family people, we’re pretty approachable, normal, not flashy people.

“I also think they choose us because we have a small clinic. Our employees have been working with us for over seven years now, there’s very little turnover. I think they feel at home in our clinic. I can’t think of a better analogy than that, but it’s a pretty relaxed environment.”

What do you like about being a plastic surgeon? 

“I really love it. It’s what I always dreamed of doing. I was a general surgeon for my first four years of medical practice. I trained at the University of Washington in general surgery. I then spent about five years in the Navy as a general surgeon taking care of mostly female dependents. I worked at the Naval hospital in Bremerton. I was doing a lot of breast surgery, which general surgeons do. I started working with some of the plastic surgeons at Madigan Army Medical Center, just south of Seattle here, down near Tacoma. I got to know a couple of those plastic surgeons and they said, ‘You act like a plastic surgeon. You should think about doing a plastic surgery fellowship.’ So that’s what I did when I got done with my Navy commitment.

“I did my plastics training at Oregon Health Sciences University down in Portland. Spent two years there, applied for my boards, took my boards, got my boards, and then moved back up to Seattle, started to practice. I think my training in general surgery led me into breast surgery. Doing a lot of breast surgery led me into plastic surgery, and that’s now mostly what I do. I really like delivering reliable, beautiful cosmetic results for patients. I love seeing patients happy. Nothing makes my day better than having a patient send us a note or give us a review that we did a great job and exceeded their expectations.

“At this point, the job is not as stressful as it used to be, because I think now we figured out what we’re good at, and we’re really good at cosmetic breast surgery. We deliver great results, but it took a while to arrive at that point in our career now, 12 years in. I feel confident when I walk into the operating room now. Today we did two breast augmentations and a lift. I know that patient’s going to end up happy. That’s a really great feeling at the end of the day, to know that you made that change in a patient’s life. It makes me sleep well at night.”

He is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon because of his dedication to his training, his patients, and much more.

Dr. Brown is known for taking the time to educate his patients on all of their options. He will explain to you the difference between gummy breast implants, unstructured saline implants, and the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, as well as the difference between various breast augmentation procedures and what may be right for you. You will leave your consultation with a confident and clear idea of what you want and why it is the right choice for you. Learn more about him and what he offers his patients-including the latest in breast implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT.

About Dr. Joseph Brown

Dr. Brown completed his undergraduate studies in biology at West Virginia University, where he graduated magna cum laude. He then attended Rutgers University New Jersey Medical School, where he graduated in the top ten percent of his medical school class. Throughout his undergraduate and medical school training, he was the recipient of more than ten scholarships and academic awards.

Dr. Brown completed a six-year integrated plastic surgery residency at Ohio State University, where he was trained by some of the most respected plastic surgeons in the world. There, he received extensive training in cutting edge techniques in aesthetic surgery of the face, neck, breast, body, and extremities. His experience with complex trauma, cancer, and breast reconstruction, as well as cleft lip and migraine surgery further enhances his ability to make decisions that aim to avoid complications and maximize safety for patients.  He had the privilege to serve as chief resident in his final two years, giving him the opportunity to further refine his judgment, surgical skill and aesthetic eye. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Having come from a family of teachers and construction workers, Dr. Brown believes in the importance of hard work, dedication, and communication.

Having seen both sides of the coin, Dr. Brown treats every patient as if they were his family.

I am beyond happy with my results! Dr. Brown is an incredible and extremely knowledgeable surgeon who truly takes the time to get to know you and what you want. I was so nervous about getting my surgery and Dr. Brown made me feel at ease and comfortable. Most importantly he understood exactly what I was asking for. From the moment I called I knew this was the right place because the staff are amazing as well. They are so caring and do a great job guiding you through every step of the journey. Overall I am extremely happy – I feel like a whole new me thanks to Dr. Brown and his incredible team.” – Google review from Amanda M. 

Breast Implant Options

Dr. Brown offers his patients a wide variety of breast augmentation procedures, as well as different types of implants, including the “gummy” breast implant which contains cohesive silicone gel, unstructured saline implants, and the structured  IDEAL IMPLANT. Each implant comes with a variety of textures, shapes, and sizes, as well as different methods of implant incision and placement to help you achieve the overall look and profile you’re looking for.

A typical consultation with Dr. Brown will involve a thorough history and physical examination to obtain breast and body measurements. This meeting will help determine the perfect size and style implants for you after a thorough discussion of your options. Dr. Brown and his staff will aid you in achieving your goals after setting realistic expectations safely. After you’ve discussed and decided how you’d like to move forward in your initial consultation, there will be a preoperative visit with Dr. Brown and his team. Here you will be given your necessary prescriptions and receive instructions on what to do the day before/the day of/the days after surgery. Dr. Brown will be directly involved in all aspects of your care throughout the process. He welcomes and addresses any questions or concerns you may have along the way.

Benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT

The IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured breast implant filled with a saline solution. Dr. Brown and his patients love this implant because it feels and looks natural but offers lasting peace of mind with the safety features it provides. One of the safety benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it has a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture than other implants, like the gummy breast implant or other silicone gel breast implants on the market. In the small chance that it does rupture, the saline inside the IDEAL IMPLANT is harmlessly absorbed by the body.

A recent study showed that the IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel implants for primary augmentation at ten years due to both a lower risk of rupture and of capsular contracture. The study showed that the risk of implant rupture or deflation with IDEAL IMPLANT was 3.7% over ten years for primary augmentation, compared with silicone gel implants at 8.7-24.2%. In addition, IDEAL IMPLANT has a 6.6% risk of capsular contracture, compared with silicone gel implants at 12.1-18.9%. The IDEAL IMPLANT allows women to instantly detect deflation just by looking in the mirror, while silicone gel or gummy breast implants require regular MRI or ultrasound scans to detect rupture.  Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has too.

The IDEAL IMPLANT is offered exclusively through a select network of board-certified plastic surgeons committed to addressing women’s concerns, educating them on all of their breast augmentation and implant options, and staying up to date on implant technologies. Dr. Brown is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon, which means he has more experience studying, working with, and implementing this implant than other surgeons. It also means that he can offer his patients this cutting edge technology with all of its benefits while other surgeons may not have access to it yet.

What Are High Profile Breast Implants? Learn More From Dr. Barry Silberg!

Breast implants are not one-size-fits-all. Breast augmentation surgery is a very customizable procedure that allows women to achieve a wide range of results. Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures. Plus, they have varying structural designs and are made with different kinds of internal fillers. These variables produce numerous levels of projection, often referred to as low, moderate, or high profile breast implants. As a patient of Dr. Barry Silberg, you will learn about all your options to ensure you make the best choice for your body type.

Committed to Education

Dr. Silberg works hard to educate his patients about the different kinds of breast implants and profiles. He strives for women to feel empowered and confident in their decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery, and this comes through education and knowing the available options. Dr. Silberg is also committed to remaining up-to-date on the latest advancements and innovations in the plastic surgery industry. As stated on his website:

“Dr. Silberg attends several plastic surgery meetings each year and makes presentations to other plastic surgeons on new developments in plastic surgery and medicine. He has published numerous articles and has presented his work as an invited guest professor and/or surgeon in Japan, Thailand, France, Mexico, Korea, and Brazil as well as at major medical meetings in the United States. He is the inventor of External Ultrasound Assist, used worldwide to make surgery less traumatic. His instrument, the Silberg Graft Passer, is widely used in soft tissue augmentation of the face, making procedures more accurate.”

A Skilled and Experienced Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Silberg is no stranger to plastic surgery. He has been in practice since 1979 and performed an array of cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive surgeries. He has served several terms as Chief of Plastic Surgery at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, and is currently a member of the Level II Trauma Team at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital. In this position, he performs major reconstructive surgery to those who have incurred serious and complex injuries to the body and face. Furthermore:

Dr. Silberg has performed thousands of cosmetic surgeries incorporating leading edge technologies and state-of-the-art techniques and he has been a lecturer and teacher for cosmetic surgeons worldwide, having taught throughout the U.S., France, South America, and Asia. Dr. Silberg has also volunteered with Rotoplast in the Philippines performing cleft lip surgery on dozens of children.

Offers Low, Moderate, and High Profile Breast Implants

Dr. Silberg understands every patient has unique goals and expectations. He takes time to listen to each one of his patients and learn about what they hope to accomplish from a breast augmentation. Whether you are interested in low or high profile breast implants, he offers three types of breast implants—silicone gel, unstructured saline, and IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants.

How IDEAL IMPLANTS Compare

There are significant differences between silicone gel, unstructured saline, and IDEAL IMPLANTS. For years, women have been forced to choose between the natural feel and realistic look expected with silicone gel implants, and the peace of mind and security that comes with a saline filler.

Silicone Gel Implants: Women with silicone gel implants can experience a “silent rupture”, in other words, a rupture that goes undetected. The sticky gel substance comes in contact with the surrounding tissues of a woman’s body without her knowledge, and must be surgically cleaned out when the damaged implant is removed. An MRI or ultrasound is often required to detect the rupture. In fact, it is recommended that all women with silicone gel implants pursue regular MRI scans or ultrasounds to detect silent rupture of their implants.

IDEAL IMPLANTS: Both unstructured saline implants and IDEAL IMPLANTS are filled only with a sterile saltwater solution. So if an IDEAL IMPLANT ruptures, a woman’s body can harmlessly absorb the escaped saltwater. No MRIs or ultrasounds are needed for long-term implant maintenance or to detect a rupture. A woman with IDEAL IMPLANTS can simply look in the mirror to determine if her implants are intact.

An IDEAL IMPLANT Preferred Surgeon

Dr. Silberg was recently named an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon for his extensive experience with IDEAL IMPLANTS. As a plastic surgeon that offers low and high profile breast implants, he wanted an additional implant option for his patients. IDEAL IMPLANTS utilize the latest implant technology to combine the best characteristics of both silicone gel and unstructured saline implants. IDEAL IMPLANTS have a series of implant shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. This advanced internal structure controls the movement of the saline to mitigate sloshing, reduce wrinkling, and support the implant edges to prevent collapse or damage. In fact, a study comparing IDEAL IMPLANTS and silicone gel implants found that IDEAL IMPLANTS have a lower rupture/deflation rate over ten years after primary breast augmentation.

A Trusted Plastic Surgeon

A Breast Augmentation with Dr. Sutton Graham and IDEAL IMPLANTS®

Are you looking to feel more confident, improve your self-esteem, and enhance your appearance? There are a variety of reasons why women pursue a breast augmentation. Perhaps you want to achieve better body proportions or correct breast asymmetry. Maybe you want to increase volume that was lost from pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss that left your breasts sagging and deflated. No matter the reason, Dr. Sutton Graham takes the time to listen to your story and learn why receiving breast implants is important to you. Performing breast procedures exclusively since 1998, Dr. Graham is ready to help you reach your goals.

About Dr. Sutton Graham

Dr. Graham is dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized treatment to each one of his patients. He founded the Aesthetic Center Greenville in 1990, and is board-certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Many of the surgical procedures he performs take place at his nationally accredited, on-site surgical center. As outlined on the Aesthetic Center website:

“Unlike a typical hospital or multi-specialty surgery center, our facilities are used only for surgery procedures. We do not have many different surgeons treating all types of unrelated procedures and diseases. Our accredited, on-site facilities are used only by surgeon Sutton Graham, M.D., and each member of our staff really understands the unique needs and concerns of cosmetic surgery patients. Our specialized facilities and expertise helps ensure the quality and safety of each surgical procedure. In addition, we have carefully designed a number of protocols to optimize the postoperative recovery of each patient.”

A Breast Augmentation with IDEAL IMPLANTS

Dr. Graham strives to offer the latest innovations and technological advancements in the plastic surgery industry. In fact, he is part of an exclusive network of board-certified plastic surgeons eligible to offer IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants to his patients. He was recently named an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon for his extensive experience and knowledge with this new type of breast implant. This is how he describes his work with IDEAL IMPLANTS:

“For years, patients have expressed their concerns over the potential effects of ruptured silicone gel implants. To address these worries, Aesthetic Center Greenville offers the innovative IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant . . .Patients at our Greenville, SC, practice can rest assured that they will receive personalized care from a highly skilled surgeon who has their best interests in mind … At Aesthetic Center Greenville, our patients’ safety is our number one priority, which is why we choose to offer the most advanced options available for your surgery needs.”

What is an IDEAL IMPLANT?

Many women are familiar with silicone gel implants or unstructured saline implants, but a new kind of breast implant is now available. IDEAL IMPLANTS are unlike any other type of breast implant used for a breast augmentation. Their advanced internal structure consists of a series of implant shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. The IDEAL IMPLANT website explains the benefits of this unique combination:

“Years of research and testing led to this innovative design, developed to better meet the needs of women wanting a natural look and feel without concerns relating to silicone gel … The unique internal structure controls movement of the saline for a more natural feel, while reducing folding and wrinkling, thought to be the main cause of implant rupture and deflation. On the outside, the edges have been lowered for a more natural contouring to the chest wall.”

IDEAL IMPLANTS Versus Silicone Gel Implants

Why worry about silicone gel breast implants? When a silicone gel implant ruptures, it is often referred to as a “silent rupture”. The sticky, gel substance leaks from the implant and comes in contact with the surrounding tissues of a woman’s body without her knowledge. Surgery is required to clean out the leaked gel and remove the damaged implant. An MRI or ultrasound scan is often required to detect a silent rupture. But with IDEAL IMPLANTS, a woman can look in the mirror to determine if her implants are intact. No MRIs or ultrasounds needed, and if a rupture occurs, the body safely absorbs the sterile saltwater solution. The IDEAL IMPLANT website says:

“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.”

What to Expect During a Consultation

Dr. Graham uses the consultation process to get to know each one of his patients and learn what they hope to accomplish from a breast augmentation. Patients are educated about their breast implant options and given the opportunity to see and feel the various types of breast implants in different sizes, filler types, and shape. Dr. Graham utilizes advanced 3-D imaging to assist patients in envisioning their potential results. Patients can also try on “breast sizers” as an additional tool in determining the right size breast implants. Every patient receives a customized treatment plan that outlines exact implant type, placement, and incision location.
