Do All Breast Enlargements Look the Same?

August 14th, 2019

Dr. Bashioum on TV for breast enlargement

Do all breast enlargements or more commonly called “boob jobs” results look the same?

You would be surprised how many times I get this question in my office. The short answer is no. Each plastic surgeon has a particular aesthetic or individual style for how they do surgery, resulting in a specific “look” after surgery. My practice has been built on the natural appearance that I strive to give to my patients. While this is not every patient’s desire, the majority of my practice finds a natural result to be important. This television interview that I did with our patient Lisa, for a segment for Twin Cities Live is a good example:  https://youtu.be/daYnVquyWhA

How does a patient decide? An effective way to evaluate a surgeon’s typical results is to look at Before/After photos, usually provided as part of an initial consultation. Besides the video above, we also have several patient blogs, describing their personal experience with having a breast enlargement and have a 30-year cosmetic surgery practice history of performing this surgery as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Patient Happy with Saline Implants

July 12th, 2019

Saline implant replacement

Wendi writes about silicone implants replaced with saline:  “I am a 62 year old female and have come to Dr. Bashioum for my 2nd set of breast implants. My first set was done 25 years ago and were silicone implants and I was super happy with the results. After 25 years, they needed to be replaced and that this time I went with the saline implants and couldn’t be happier with the results once again. I definitely would recommend the saline implants over the silicone implants as they are softer and are more natural looking. The service I have received with Dr. Bashioum and his staff is definitely the best out there. All questions are answered in a manner that is easy to understand and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The patient care before and after the surgery was amazing and I have had absolutely no problems since my surgery. Many thanks once again for the wonderful experience.”

Dr. Bashioum replies: Dear Wendi, Thank you for sharing your experience in having your silicone breast implants replaced. As you noted, saline implants today are much improved from their first generation available many years ago. They also represent a safer choice in the event of breakage, in simply leaking saline, which is salt water. When presented with all the current information and guidelines, most of my patients do choose saline now. I am honored that you returned for your second surgery and you report being happy again with your results. It was our pleasure to provide you with the kind of experience that is our #1 goal. Thanks again for taking time to write on our Nipntuck Blog.
