Use Breast Implants From Reputable Manufacturers

Another story which appeared in the news today about breast implants sounds shocking on the surface. Claims are that large implants rupture at a much higher rate. The article also references "Jordan Syndrome", where women who get implants continually want to go bigger and bigger, often leading to the use of much oversized and potentially dangerous or disfiguring breast implants.  See article:  http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2011/12/02/bursting-breast-implants-trebles-in-four-years_n_1125828.html?ref=uk-lifestyle

While this condition may exist, and rupture and other problems can be more prevalent in larger implants, in the United States, the leading manufacturers of saline and silicone breast implants provide implants in sizes that have proven to be safe. These are strictly regulated.  In addition, Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who specialize in Breast Augmentations receive training in the appropriate use and sizing of breast implants.

The very large sizes mentioned in the article (G-Cup, FF-Cup etc) are no longer used in this country.  We also have very strict manufacturing standards which must be met in making breast implants, and there have been many advances over the years to ensure safety. In our experience, most women select implants from 350cc up to 800cc, which can increase your breast size from one to a few bra cup sizes.  Most women don't want to look abnormal, clownish or "over-the-top".  Keeping in proportion to the rest of your body will almost always give the most pleasing result.

We recommend that if you are considering breast implants, go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is trained and experienced in Breast Augmentation, and who uses quality saline or silicone gel implants.  He or she will be able to advise you on the risks associated with the type and size implant you desire, and will have your health, safety and goals in mind when helping with this important decision.
