Your Breast Surgery Options with Dr. Rapaport

by | Nov 4, 2019 | Plastic Surgeon Feature, Testimonials - Surgeons

NYC board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Rapaport of Rapaport Plastic Surgery, loves being a plastic surgeon. He believes that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer to plastic surgery issues and treats each patient as an individual, creating a completely customized plan for them. When asked about his practice, he explained,

I think our practice stands out because we very much individualize our treatments. I’m very proud to be able to offer minimally invasive treatments that hide scars. I’m proud that I do virtually all my liposuction, and the vast majority of my facelifts, under IV sedation. I tell you to take a deep breath, roll over, and I beat the chances of airway problems or blood clot. I enjoy the act of surgery as well as the relationships with the patients that occur from the whole process. So I guess I’m a pretty happy guy.”

Known for his expertise in endoscopic breast surgeries, Dr. Rapaport is happy to now offer the latest in implant technology, the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant. He understands that women need more choices and less risks.

Breast Surgery Options

Women can choose from a variety of breast surgery options, thanks to talented surgeons like Dr. Rapaport, who are skilled in more than one method of breast implant surgery, as well as innovative implant options like the IDEAL IMPLANT, that allow women a larger variety of implant designs and breast implant sizes. When you go in for your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Rapaport, he will help you understand all of the options that are available for you and the trade-offs involved with each one. He will take into account your personal concerns and anatomy, and then be honest with you about all of the realistic options. This way, you and Dr. Rapaport can discuss and decide on what would be the best option for you. 

When you go in for a breast surgery, you have the option of incision through the underarm, areola, or in the skin that connects underneath your breast to your chest. Most patients prefer an underarm scar because it prevents obvious scars from forming on their breasts. Dr. Rapaport studied and pioneered endoscopic technology and now performs underarm incisions all the time. This means that rather than tearing the lower border of the muscle and risking the implant changing positions due to incomplete muscle division, the muscle is precisely divided under magnified endoscopic visualization, allowing for precise implant positioning. 

Breast Implant Options

Women can choose between unstructured saline, silicone gel, and now, structured implants and a variety of breast implant sizes. The IDEAL IMPLANT is considered a structured implant because of its unique design. It consists of a silicone shell (no silicone gel) filled with saline. There are two chambers that hold saline and the outer shells are baffled, meaning they consist of thin silicone sheets. This structured implant controls  the saline movement when you touch it, creating that natural feel that all women want. This implant is ideal for women who are worried about the safety of silicone gel, or would like the endoscopic approach to surgery so that they don’t have scars on their breasts. 

The IDEAL IMPLANT is the newest implant to approach the market of cosmetic surgery in NYC. Patient satisfaction is high when it comes to this implant because it has a natural feel with a very low risk of rupture. When inserted through the armpit, the implant can be adjusted to any breast implant size desired, also making sure that breasts are perfectly symmetrical. Another benefit to the IDEAL IMPLANT is that in a recent eight-year study, the IDEAL IMPLANT proved to have the lowest risk of rupture and capsular contracture rates compared to certain silicone gel implants. This implant provides the priceless peace of mind that women want.

“Based on my experience, I would say the IDEAL IMPLANT is an excellent option. Patients like the look and the feel. Above all they really like the peace of mind of knowing that they haven’t done anything they might regret down the road or that if there is a rupture, the process of replacing it is easier than with other implants that rupture.” – Dr. Rapaport
