Silicone Breast Implant Safety

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Silicone Breast Implant Safety Orange CountyBreast implants are essentially a type of medical device surgically implanted underneath the tissue of the breasts in order to enhance the size of the breasts or restore the breast back to its original size after pregnancy, weight loss or mastectomy. It is basically a kind of breast augmentation procedure.

Breast implants are usually available in the United States under two categories-silicone and saline breast implants. While the internal matter for both types of implants is different, their outer shell is made up of substance, i.e. silicone. The size, thickness of the shell and the shape of the implants varies.

Choosing the type of Breast Implant

While saline breast implants consist of sterile salt water, silicone implants have silicone gel filled in them. When saline implants are inserted, they are empty. They are only filled up once they have been placed under the breast tissue. These implants can be utilized by women who are 18 years of age and above for the purpose of a breast lift or breast augmentation. Women of different ages can also go for saline implants for breast reconstruction.

The common verdict among women is that silicone breast implants appear and give the feel of  natural breasts. Women of the age of 22 years and older can opt for silicone breast implants for breast augmentation. Again women of different ages can also use them for breast reconstruction.

Safety points in Silicone Breast Implant

With both kinds of breast implants, there is a risk of ruptures. These could be caused as a result of error in surgery, a slip or fall or in very rare cases, with pressure or force put on the breasts at the time of a mammogram. The impact of ruptures in case of silicone implanted breasts is different from saline-based breast implants.

The ruptures in silicone implants are not easily noticed. If there is a breakage of the implant, the liquid silicone remains in the body itself. At times, it can travel out and spread into the lymph nodes outside the breasts. However, research has not yet revealed any risk of disease related to such a rupture taking place.

As mentioned before, this leakage of silicone gel is not associated with any systemic disease or health issue such as breast cancer, rheumatoid arthritis or reproductive issues.

Nonetheless keeping in mind the non-existent risk, in a situation where there is a rupture of the silicone implant, your surgeon will most likely guide you to remove it along with any loose silicone.

Saline Breast Implant Safety

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Saline Breast Implant Safety Orange CountySaline breast implants basically contain sterile salt-water and have an outer shell or covering made up of silicone. While some saline breast implants come in the pre-filled variety, others are usually filled during the surgical procedure of breast augmentation. Saline breast implants are available in a variety of sizes. They have different kinds of shells as well-textured or smooth.

These breast implants are approved by the FDA and can be utilized for breast augmentation among women of 18 years of age and above. These saline breast implants are also used for breast reconstructions and revision operations among many women of different ages.

Implantation process

In most cases, saline implants are filled up once they have been placed under the breast tissue. So, a smaller incision is required for these implants as compared to silicone breast implants which are pre-filled.

In addition to this, adjustments can also be made to saline breast implants after surgery. Months after the breast augmentation procedure, a woman has the option to enhance or reduce the size of the saline breast implants. This can be done without the use of surgery. The cosmetic surgeon simply  puts in more liquid or takes out excess liquid from the implants using a syringe. But no changes can be made to the standard size of the silicone implants which come in the pre-filled implant variety.

Safety factor

With both kinds of breast implants (saline and silicone), there is an associated risk of ruptures. These ruptures could result from a error in surgery, a fall and maybe even some extra force put on the breast in a mammogram procedure (this situation is very rare).

As compared to silicone implant, ruptures in saline breast implants are very easy to detect. When there is a rupture in saline breast implants, deflation of the implant takes place resulting in a change in the shape and size of the breast.

The saline liquid which leaks out of the implant gets absorbed in the body, but does not have any health risks associated with it. However, your surgeon may recommend you to get the silicone shell removed and a new implant could be inserted immediately if desired by you.

Research shows no concrete link between saline breast implants and disease related to connective tissue, reproductive issues or breast cancer.

Breast Implant Safety

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

Breast Implant Safety    Orange CountyIn the United States, ‘saline’ and ‘silicone’ are the two common types of breast implants  available. In both types of implants, an outer shell made of silicone is used. So, the difference basically lies with regards to what is present inside the implants. While the inside of saline implants consists of sterile saltwater, the filling inside silicone implants is that of silicone gel.

History of Silicone Breast Implants

The concept of silicone breast implants first came into being in the year 1962. The concept of silicone breast implants gained  popularity during the 1980s. However this also brought into focus some of the risks associated with the cosmetic surgery. But studies  revealed that there was no concrete evidence that proved that silicone implants carried any risks for the patients.

In fact, after a thorough review research conducted in 2006, the FDA passed an approval to the sale of specific silicone breast implants which had earlier been restricted.

Safety of Breast Implants

Breast augmentation surgery is the process which makes use of breast implants or fat transfer to enhance the breast size among females or restore the size back to normal after pregnancy or drastic weight loss.

Careful studies of scientific nature conducted by different independent organizations such as Institute of Medicine reveal that there is no connection found between breast implant surgery and any systemic illnesses or autoimmune diseases.

Some important facts to understand with regards to breast implants include the following:

  • There is no guarantee that a breast implant surgery done once will last a lifetime. There might be a surgery required in the future for replacing either or both implants
  • The appearance of surgically treated breasts or breasts carrying implants may be impacted by factors such as weight reduction, pregnancy and menopause over a period of time
  • Breast augmentation surgery calls for routine check-ups of the health of your breasts and to examine the state of your breast implants

If you reside in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach or CA and are looking for an experienced cosmetic surgeon to guide you with the breast augmentation process, you could contact Dr. Farbod Esmailian, who is an experienced surgeon in the field of breast augmentation, reconstruction and revision surgery.

His USP lies in delivering beautiful, yet natural appearing results for patients making their surgery experience a very positive and encouraging one. He uses a unique breast implants procedure termed as ‘Gummy Bear Breast Implants’.

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

For the layman, this implant procedure is approved by the FDA and is utilized in the breast augmentation surgery. Several women today opt for this kind of implant because the  results are  natural as compared to the conventional types of breast implants used earlier, namely saline-based or silicone gel implants.

In addition to this, Gummy bear breast implants have a firmer appearance and are safer. Also, there is no leakage of implants in case of ruptures. Silicone gel implants consists of fluid (silicone) which would obviously tend to leak out if there was a rupture leading to embarrassing situations.

What is the Difference Between a Breast Lift vs Other Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Farbod Esmailian | Plastic Surgery

What is the Difference Between a Breast Lift vs Other Breast Augmentation Surgery? Orange CountyCommon breast procedures in cosmetic surgery include breast implants, breast lift, and breast reduction. In many cases, a new patient may not have a very clear idea about which procedure may be most appropriate for her. Patients may be particularly confused between breast augmentation and breast lift surgeries. Sometimes the patient may need a combination of both breast augmentation and lift.

All such possibilities must be evaluated and discussed during the pre-op consultation process. Dr. Farbod Esmailian ensures that his patients Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, and nearby communities get a clear idea of the differences between breast augmentation and breast lift. His goal during the initial consultation to help the patient make informed choices.

Assessing the Patient’s Aesthetic Goals

Some patients may show more keenness towards breast lift surgery alone. If the existing breast tissue is significant, it may be possible to achieve aesthetically superior outcomes with breast lift alone. However, substantial fullness in the upper aspect of the breasts may not be achieved with a breast lift. Therefore, the surgeon will ask the patient how important it may be for her to attain greater fullness in the upper portion of the breasts. If the patient is clear about her aesthetic need for greater upper breast fullness, a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift may be necessary.

In some cases, the patient may be looking only to increase the size of the breasts, but the skin laxity in the breast area may be very high. That could make the appearance of breast implants alone quite awkward and unappealing. In such a situation, the patient’s aesthetic needs may again be best served by a combination of breast augmentation and breast lift surgeries. A combined procedure also ensures restoration of the youthful position of the nipple-areola complex to the top of the breast mound.

Need for Breast Implants and Lift

Many women who suffer from loss of breast volume or drooping breasts will have questions about whether their condition can be corrected with implants alone or with a combined implants and lift procedure. Patients should know that implants alone will correct the breast appearance when:

  • Skin laxity that is causing the breasts to sag is only mild.
  • The nipples are fairly close to the center of the breast and are not pointing downwards.
  • The skin beneath the nipple and areola is visible when looking at the breasts straight on.
  • The patient is keen or at least agreeable to the notion of having her breasts at least a cup size larger.

Breast lift, whether with or without implants is necessary when:

  • Breasts are sagging heavily.
  • The nipples are pointing downwards.
  • There is no visible skin beneath the nipple or areola when looking straight on at the breasts.
  • The patient is not ready for larger sized breasts.

Dr. Esmailian will carefully evaluate the condition of breasts before recommending the appropriate procedure to his patients in Orange County, Newport Beach, Torrance, Los Alamitos, Long Beach, CA, or nearby locations.

  • Loss of breast tissue following a mastectomy
