Do Your Breast Implants Now Seem Too Large? Consider Smaller Ones

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Oct 21, 2020 6:00:00 AM

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 300,000 breast augmentations were performed in the U.S. in 2018, making it the most popular cosmetic surgery. In general, most women — including the majority of my patients — are pleased with the fuller, shapelier, sexier silhouette they can achieve with breast implants.

Thinking About Having Your Breast Implants Removed?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Oct 14, 2020 6:00:00 AM

For decades, women have wanted larger, fuller breasts and have chosen breast implants as a safe, effective way to get them. These days, however, that trend is reversing in many cases. Women’s lifestyles are changing, as well as what our current culture considers to be attractive and desirable.

Today, smaller breasts that look more natural and realistic are becoming more popular. For this reason, many women are choosing to have breast revision surgery, either to have their breast implants removed or to replace them with a smaller size. This is just one of several breast procedures I perform in my practice. To learn more, click here.

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.)

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.

For A Look That’s Uniquely You, Choose Natrelle®

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jun 17, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Aren’t you glad that you’re you? And that nobody else is exactly like you? That’s the thinking behind Natrelle gummy gel breast implants, the breast augmentation choice that gives you the most options for the look that’s right for you. 

All breast implants are not the same, from their size to what they’re filled with

The size of a breast implant is determined by several factors, says the Natrelle website. These include:

  • The height and width of the implant
  • Your side profile, or the distance the implant projects from your body
  • The volume or number of cc’s of silicone or saline within the implant
