Plastic Surgeon in New York City Helps Patients Make Informed Decisions When Selecting Breast Implants

Dr. Stafford R. Broumand Authors Three Blogs to Assist His Breast Augmentation Patients in Selecting Implants That Complement Their Natural Body Type While Fulfilling Their Cosmetic Goals

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 27, 2013) - Dr. Stafford R. Broumand provides a wide array of implant materials, sizes, shapes, and surgical techniques to enhance the appearance of his patients' breasts. The New York plastic surgeon views breast augmentation as both a science and an art, and selecting breast implants that suit the patient's body type while aligning with her aesthetic desires is an integral component to his procedural process.

During the initial doctor-patient consultation, Dr. Broumand presents implant options based upon his patients' unique body characteristics. According to a recent blog post on his practice's website titled "Selecting the Right Breast Implants For Your Cosmetic Goals," Dr. Broumand notes that several factors are taken into account during this assessment, including:

  • Weight
  • Subcutaneous fat thickness
  • Breast width
  • Breast position
  • Breast symmetry
  • Cleavage
  • Skin quality

Once this initial assessment is complete, patients select their breast implants based upon their cosmetic goals and information presented by Dr. Broumand. The New York plastic surgeon's recent blog posts titled "Silicone Vs. Saline Breast Implants" and "Breast Implants: Sientra® Vs. Allergan Natrelle® 410" compare and contrast each implant and why women might choose one over the other.

In this blog series, Dr. Broumand offers advantages for each implant option at his practice. He highlights that "traditional silicone implants offer a more natural look and feel for patients," and they have also proven to be less prone to rippling. In contrast, he says saline implants can be a great alternative for patients wary of silicone as "they are composed of a saltwater-based solution that harmlessly exits the body in the event of a rupture." Furthermore, he notes that the smooth, round cohesive-gel breast implant manufactured by Sientra® is also an excellent option as clinical data suggests this implant has produced "less rupture rates, no instances of rotation, less capsular contractures, and no double capsules."

Ultimately, Dr. Broumand is quick to point out that there is no one singular solution for any particular breast augmentation procedure. He believes that it is his job to inform patients of the spectrum of options available so that they may make an informed decision about their surgery. Regardless of the implants his patients select, Dr. Broumand's goal in breast augmentation is always the same: to help his patients attain beautiful and natural-looking results.
