Do you detest the size or shape of your breasts? Fortunately, with advancements in technology, your breasts do not have to affect your self-confidence. While seeking an implant to achieve your body goals, it is crucial to have expert care for the best possible outcomes. For East Windsor breast implants, contact Matthew J. Lynch, MD, for a natural-looking reshape or resize.
What are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are silicone or saline devices that fit beneath your chest muscle or breast tissue to enhance your breast’s shape. Implants come in various sizes, shapes, and dimensions that are customized to meet your desires. They are used for both breast augmentation and breast reconstruction surgery.
Which Breast Implant is Ideal for Me?
Every type of breast implant has its merits. Dr. Lynch takes his time to discuss your individual needs and desired outcome before identifying which implant is best for you. He also assists you in making an informed choice according to your body type and the type of surgery you are having, such as:
· Rebalancing symmetry
After deciding your type of implant, Dr. Lynch tailors a treatment plan just for you. He applies cutting-edge surgical techniques and superior breast implants to bring out your desired aesthetic results.
Are Breast Implants Safe?
Innovations in breast implants ensure the materials are not only practical but also safe. Available implants at Matthew J. Lynch MD Plastic and reconstructive surgery such as ALLERGAN® and MENTOR® are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Saline Breast Implants
Saline implants comprise an outer shell made of durable silicone. The implants are filled with a sterile saline solution, saltwater, after the implants are surgically put in place.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone implants come prefilled with a form stabilized cohesive gel. This kind of implant is often lighter and has a more natural feel compared to a saline implant.
Other than giving you natural-looking, natural-feeling breasts, Dr. Lynch also addresses issues regarding incidents and risks of breast implant illness and breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)
What is Breast Implant Illness?
Breast implant illness refers to a full range of symptoms that can develop after a breast augmentation or breast reconstruction surgery with silicone implants. Such symptoms include:
· Joint pain
· Chronic fatigue
· Memory problems
· Gastrointestinal problems
· Sleep disturbance
· Breathing issues
These symptoms occur commonly due to an autoimmune or inflammatory response to the breast implant materials. Dr. Lynch closely reviews your symptoms, then designs a treatment plan that may, at times, involve the extraction of the breast implant.
What is BIA-ALCL?
BIA-ALCL is a unique type of cancer that attacks the immune system. It is not breast cancer but an inflammatory response that develops in the scar tissue surrounding your implant.
Upon prompt diagnosis, BIA-ALCL is effectively treatable. However, if left unmanaged, this cancer can spread to other areas of your body.
