10 Reasons Women Love The Ideal Breast Implant

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Sep 16, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Do you long to have larger, fuller breasts? Do you wish you looked sexier in bathing suits, bras and lingerie? If so, breast implants are a safe, highly successful way to get the breast size you’ve always wanted. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeonsbreast augmentation is the top cosmetic surgery performed today. Now, there's a new type of breast implant that gives you both bigger size and peace of mind.

Until now, if you wanted larger breasts, you only had two choices of implants:

  1. Silicone implants that would give you natural-looking results but you'd worry about silent rupture.

  2. Saline implants that would give you peace of mind but you'd worry about wrinkling and an unnatural feel.

Now there's a third choice: the structured Ideal implant

If You Currently Have Allergan BIOCELL Textured Breast Implants, You Can Get Them Replaced For Free

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Sep 9, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Earlier this year, textured breast implants made by the manufacturer Allergan were recalled in the United States and around the world because they have been linked to a rare form of cancer called breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. (The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has published a report discussing this type of lymphoma which you can read here.)

Allergan is now offering to replace their recalled BIOCELL textured breast implants with Allergan smooth implants at no charge.

Before, If You Wanted Larger Breasts, You Only Had Two Options. Until Now!

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Aug 26, 2020 6:00:00 AM

For many years, if you wanted larger, fuller breasts, you had two options: implants filled with silicone or implants filled with saline. Today, you have a third choice: the structured Ideal implant, which combines the natural look and feel of silicone gel with the safety and peace of mind of saline. Now you don’t have to choose between a beautiful, natural look and the confidence of knowing your implants will stay intact.

Now there are three types of breast implants

Concerned About The Allergan Breast Implant Recall? Here’s What You Should Know.

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Aug 19, 2020 6:00:00 AM

You may have read or heard in the news that the breast implant manufacturer Allergan has recalled its textured breast implants, here in the U.S. and around the world. A July 2019 statement from the FDA explains the recall:

To protect individuals from the increased risk of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), associated with Allergan BIOCELL textured breast implants, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requested that Allergan recall its BIOCELL textured breast implants and tissue expanders. Allergan agreed and is removing these products from the global market.

(FYI: BIA-ALCL is not breast cancer. It is a type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, which is cancer of the immune system.)

Ready To Say Goodbye To Your Flabby Tummy and Sagging Skin?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jul 29, 2020 6:00:00 AM

For a lot of women, after multiple pregnancies or extreme weight loss, their stomach muscles become soft, flabby and distended. In many cases, even a healthy diet and exercise do not fix the problem. One solution that I often suggest that is effective and has long-lasting results is a tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty.

A tummy tuck surgically tightens weak, separated abdominal muscles and removes excess skin and fat. The result? A flatter, tighter, more toned midsection. In addition, many of my patients experience improved posture and decreased back pain after having this procedure, due to the tightened muscles supporting their spine. To learn more about the range of body sculpting  procedures I offer, click here.

How does a tummy tuck “fix” sagging skin?

Requiring 1-2 hours in the operating room under general anesthesia, a typical tummy tuck removes several pounds of stomach fat and excess skin, and tightens weakened and/or separated abdominal muscles. It can also decrease stretch marks caused by pregnancy, and dramatically improve scars from previous surgeries, such as a Caesarean section, stomach stapling or an appendectomy.

What’s The Difference Between a Brazilian Butt Lift and Butt Implants?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jul 22, 2020 6:00:00 AM

A lifted, toned, full-sized “behind” is something that few women are born with but that many women wish they had. Maybe you feel this way too? With a Brazilian butt lift (also called butt augmentation), the size, shape and fullness of your butt can be carefully sculpted and enhanced, giving you the sexy, attractive butt you’ve always wanted.

Using liposuction, a Brazilian butt lift takes fat from areas where you have too much—such as the stomach, waist, back or thighs—and transplants it into the buttocks to create a fuller, sexier, more curvaceous shape. In addition to the Brazilian butt lift, I offer a wide range of other body sculpting procedures to help you achieve a more shapely body, which you can learn about here.

Silicone, Saline or Structured: How to Choose The Breast Implant That’s Right For You

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jul 15, 2020 6:00:00 AM

One of the joys of being a plastic surgeon is being able to give women the size and shape breasts they desire. For some, this means larger breasts (breast augmentation). For others, it means smaller breasts (breast reduction) or reconstructed ones following a mastectomy (breast reconstruction). For those who want bigger, fuller breasts, breast implants are a safe, highly successful way to achieve the breast size they’ve always wanted. As well as breast augmentation, I offer a complete range of breast procedures which you can learn about here.

Recent concerns about textured breast implants

There are two general types of breast implants: textured and smooth. In my plastic surgery practice, I only use smooth implants but some plastic surgeons, especially in Europe, have used textured implants that have recently been recalled in the United States and worldwide. To help patients better understand this issue, I’ve made a 2½-minute video explaining the details, which you can watch by clicking on the image below.
