Getting a Breast Augmentation With Dr. Baxter
Dr. Baxter offers his patients a wide variety of breast augmentation procedures as well as different types of implants, including unstructured saline, silicone gel and the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. Each implant comes with a variety of textures, shapes, and sizes as well as different methods of implant placement to help you achieve the dream that you have in mind. During your consultation, you and Dr. Baxter will discuss and determine together the best implant placement, type and size based on your specific body, lifestyle, and vision.
He will take the time to answer all of your questions and make sure that you understand completely what the procedure will entail and how your results will look and feel. He will also discuss incision placement with you in order to reduce the appearance of scars. One of the benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it may allow for a smaller incision that is harder to detect after recovery than other types of breast implant incision scars. Before you move forward with any concrete decisions, Dr. Baxter will always make sure to educate you on all the breast augmentation options available to you.
Benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT
The IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured breast implant filled with a saline solution. Women and surgeons alike love this implant because it feels and looks natural but offers lasting peace of mind with the safety features it provides. One of the benefits of this implant is that it has a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture than other implants on the market. In the small chance that it does rupture, the saline inside the IDEAL IMPLANT is harmlessly absorbed by the body.
In fact, a recent study showed that the IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant has advantages over silicone gel implants for primary augmentation at eight years. The study showed that the cumulative risk of implant rupture or deflation with IDEAL IMPLANT was only 2.1% after primary breast augmentation in comparison to silicone gel implants with rates that range from 7.2% to 13.6% based on MRI scans. In addition, the IDEAL IMPLANT allows women to instantly detect deflation just by looking in the mirror, while silicone gel breast implants require regular MRI scans to detect rupture and can require extensive surgery to correct.
“Recent surveys have clearly shown that the majority of women have very real concerns about silicone gel in their bodies and the risk of silent rupture,” reports Dr. Vivian Ting, a board-certified Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon in California who presented the survey data at the ASPS Aesthetica Super Symposium last year. “Surgeons may underestimate this anxiety simply because they don’t share the concern, in great part because about 90% are male. A woman’s anxiety about what is in her body is a critical part of the full treatment picture.”
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. Baxter has been selected as 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.
