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.

Bikini Weather: Is Lipo the answer?

June 7th, 2019

Wayzata Beach

Bikini weather has finally arrived this year in Minneapolis and beach ready body questions soon follow. I have noticed an increase in the interest for liposuction and breast enlargement, as Midwesterners anticipate finally shedding bulky winter clothing for skimpy beachwear. The body-conscience scramble to lose those winter pounds, toning up muscle.¬†Sometimes working out can only get you so far. When fullness on the hips and thighs just doesn’t seem to get better after hitting the gym, there are additional options. Liposuction can effectively remove localized fullness, but isn’t a weight-loss tool. The best results are achieved with patients that are within 10 pounds of their ideal weight.

Women who have had children and men who have lost over 75 pounds often have a belly issue. Stretched skin and muscle usually require a tummy tuck to smooth the abdomen. The scar is strategically placed so that it is covered by most swimsuits, but the surgery requires about a week of recovery before revealing new abs. Seasonally inspired, breast enlargement interest is actually on the rise. It remains the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. More than 300,000 women elected to have breast augmentations last year in the US, with liposuction coming in a close second.
