Breast surgery is among the most commonly performed surgery in the United States and sometimes the results can be less than optimal. Capsular contracture, malposition of implants, widening of the areola, size issues, and poor scarring are just a few of the many problems that can occur. Dr.Ram is sensitive to these problems and understands that the emotional toll on the patient can be significant. As this is a special interest of his, he sees patients who have had surgery from all over the world.
One of Dr. Ram’s most common revision breast surgeries involves the exchange of saline implants for silicone implants. Memory Gel Silicone Breast Implants became fully FDA approved for use in cosmetic breast surgery in November 2006. Dr.Ram has been using these silicone implants and has been extraordinarily pleased with the results. Some of the advantages of the Memory Gel silicone implants over the saline implants include better shape, more natural feel and less rippling. Dr.Ram can answer your questions about the feasibility of changing from saline implants to silicone implants and help you determine whether or not this is an appropriate option for you.
