Dr. Eliopoulos specializes in breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks and body contouring procedures at her beautiful office in Chelmsford, MA.

Due to her extensive expertise working with IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants,  the latest technology in breast augmentation, Dr. Eliopoulos was recently recognized as an Ideal Implant Premier Surgeon. 

Educational Background

After completing her undergraduate degree at the College of the Holy Cross with a BA in Chemistry, Dr. Eliopoulos obtained her medical degree from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. She then went on to complete a five-year residency in General Surgery at the State University of New York Health Science Center in Syracuse, New York, followed by a two-year residency in Plastic Surgery at the Medical College of Georgia, and an Aesthetic and Breast Surgery Fellowship at the Charlotte Plastic Surgery Center in North Carolina. Dr. Eliopoulos explains why she chose to pursue a career in plastic surgery:

“Plastic surgery was the perfect and natural choice for me as I progressed through my surgical training. I have a true passion for this specialty, which allows me to combine my artistic talents with my fine attention to detail to help my patients achieve the most natural and aesthetic result from their surgery.”

Dr. Eliopoulos grew up in Chelmsford, MA and was excited to establish her own private practice in the area. In the year 2000, she founded the Center for Plastic Surgery Boston in order to provide excellent care and quality service to her patients and the surrounding community.

With certifications from the American Board of Plastic Surgery and American Board of Medical Specialties, Dr. Eliopoulos is exceptionally qualified to deliver stunning results to her patients. She is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, and a member of the Massachusetts Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Options for Breast Implants from Dr. Eliopoulos

Breast augmentation was the number one cosmetic surgical procedure in 2019, with just under 300,000 procedures performed. Women continue to elect to have this procedure for different reasons, such as a desire for a more full, shapely figure or to restore lost volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding. 

Currently there are three different types of implants on the market today. Women can choose silicone gel breast implants, unstructured saline breast implants, and the new structured breast implant: the IDEAL IMPLANT. Before you make any decisions, Dr. Eliopoulos will sit down with you and discuss the benefits and compromises of each of these types of implants, and discover with you which would best fit your needs and expectations. You’ll be able to physically touch the implants and do a side-by-side comparison of the different feels of each one. Dr. Eliopoulos will go over what you can expect before, during, and after a breast augmentation procedure and detail any risks involved in the surgery and the recovery process.

“Being a woman myself, I feel like I can especially understand what women’s goals and concerns are when they are trying to decide if breast augmentation is right for them and if they feel comfortable maintaining an implant. While I continue to offer silicone implants, as well as unstructured saline implants to my breast augmentation patients, I think that informed women considering breast augmentation will find the structured IDEAL IMPLANT to be a game changer!” – Dr. Eliopoulos

The Worry of Silent Rupture

Silicone gel breast implants are popular for their look and feel, but some women don’t like the fact that you cannot tell if the implant has ruptured without undergoing an expensive MRI. A rupture occurs silently and a woman may not find out about it until months or years later. The IDEAL IMPLANT carries a lower rate of both rupture and capsule contracture when compared to silicone gel breast implants. 

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. Silent rupture is a cause for worry because sticky silicone gel can escape from the implant and get into the body tissues, resulting in bigger health problems down the road. 

The IDEAL IMPLANT was created by a plastic surgeon with women’s concerns in mind. It is filled only with saline, so if there is a leak, the fluid leaking out will simply be absorbed by the body. The unique design of layers of nested shells holds the saline in place so it won’t slosh or jiggle like an unstructured saline implant might. So you’ll get the look and feel of silicone gel without the risk of silent rupture. Many women find that the IDEAL IMPLANT gives them peace of mind because if a rupture occurs in an IDEAL IMPLANT, you’ll notice it right away.

“There is no risk of silent rupture, you can simply look in the mirror and know your IDEAL IMPLANT is intact. No MRI scans are needed, and no need to consider prophylactic exchange as with silicone.” –Dr. Eliopoulos
