BECAUSE IT IS A WOMAN’S PEROGATIVE TO CHANGE HER MIND, A REVOLUTIONARY
BREAST IMPLANT ALLOWS HER TO DO JUST THAT
(press release from KMR
May 18 2005 - When a woman purchases a dress
in a department store, she may feel satisfied with the way the dress fits,
return home and notice it is too snug or just not flattering and return the
garment. In this day and age of adjustable cigarette lighters, car seats, hair
dryers, beds and the Victoria’s Secret “click” bra, shouldn’t women have the
option and flexibility to adjust and change the size of a breast implant? Board
Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ben Lee couldn’t agree more! Breast augmentation
is now one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the
United States. In 2003 alone, 280,401 women underwent this procedure. What is
the number one complaint associated with breast augmentation? The answer is
patient dissatisfaction with size!
Often, women seek breast augmentation and merely know that they want to be
“bigger” or “fuller.” Frequently a patient can overestimate the size she wants
to be or underestimate the “ideal cup size.” As Dr. Lee explains, “it is often
difficult for a patient to know exactly what she wants until she sees how a
fuller breast actually fits her proportions. Without the benefit of an
adjustable implant, patients often have to undergo multiple breast augmentations
until the doctor and patient feel it is an ideal aesthetic result. Repeated
surgery entails one or more post operative recovery periods which impedes a
patient’s personal and professional life.
Armed with this rational, Dr. Lee decided to afford his patients with the option
to change their implant size after surgery. Traditional saline implant surgery
involves creating a pocket, placing and filling the implant, and closing the
incision (all done with a patient lying flat and unconscious on the operating
table). The filling tube is left inserted in the implants and brought out
between the stitches of the closed incisions. The final determination of size is
not made until the first office visit, which is usually 2-3 days after surgery.
A small piece of gauze is placed over the incision, incorporating the filling
tube, hidden within the supportive bra. With the patient now awake, and in a
sitting position at the initial post-operative visit, the surgical dressing is
removed and saline is added or subtracted within seconds according to the
patient’s preference. The tube is then removed and the incisions are
self-sealed. As a result of this technique, patients can go up or down one full
The good news is that there is no pain associated with the removal of the
filling tube. As Dr. Lee explains, “the incision for the filling tube is only
1/8 of an inch in diameter with a self-healing incision.” While some plastic
surgeons do use a technique that enables a patient to change their breast size
up to six months, post-operatively, this necessitates leaving an uncomfortable
injection dome in the implant. Dr. Lee points out that, “With this method, a
small bump is created in the outer chest wall where the injection is made to add
or subtract fluid. The removal of the injection dome also requires a separate
surgery and additional incision.”
With his technique, not only can patients change the size of the implant without
pain or further surgery, but they can also choose the shape and position that
will provide the most ideal aesthetic result. Dr. Lee reports that, “reaction to
the adjustable implant has been uniformly positive. Most patients do
underestimate the size they want to be. This is especially true when women have
loss of breast volume following pregnancy.” For any woman who has ever felt
trepidation when considering breast augmentation, Dr. Ben Lee’s adjustable
filling tube gives them complete flexibility and control over their aesthetic
outcome—an attribute that is rare with any cosmetic procedure.
