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

Top 3 Reasons Women Have Breast Lift Surgery

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Mar 11, 2020 6:00:00 AM

One of the most satisfying aspects about being a plastic surgeon is being able to help patients feel better about themselves and their bodies. This is often achieved by body enhancing surgery, such as a Brazilian butt lift, Mommy Makeover, breast augmentation, tummy tuck or liposuction. Yet these days, the body shaping procedure that more and more of my patients are asking for is a breast lift. And they’re not alone. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1.

Like these patients, maybe this type of cosmetic surgery could benefit you too. Have your breasts begun to droop and sag? Do your nipples now point downward rather than straight ahead or upward? Do you long to once again have breasts that look youthful, uplifted and voluptuous? If so, a breast lift can be a very effective solution.

How Is A Breast Lift Different From Breast Augmentation?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Jan 8, 2020 6:00:00 AM

Have your breasts begun to droop and sag? Are they a lot lower than they used to be? Do you wish they were higher, fuller and younger-looking? Like many of my patients, you might want to consider a breast lift, a surgical procedure that significantly improves the appearance of your breasts. In addition, by lifting and re-positioning your breasts, a breast lift helps you look and feel more attractive and more feminine, both undressed and in clothing, and more self-confident about your body.
