Cost of breast implants in Fort Wayne, IN

It can be deeply frustrating when considering breast augmentation to compare apples to apples when looking at pricing.

Prices vary widely even in my own community. I guess the best way to approach this question is to tell you how I approach the major decisions I make in my own life.

I am personally wary of a price that is way too high or price that is way too low. Ultimately, it is most important to me to like the person that I am dealing with and have respect for that person.

As you look it plastic surgeons I would suggest to you that price be a secondary factor. Make sure that you trust and respect that person’s experience and credentials and don’t let a couple of $ either way make the decision.

When in doubt meet with a few surgeons to see which one hears you the best and gives you honest expectations. (Adam Tattelbaum, MD, Washington DC Plastic Surgeon)

How much for breast implants and lift

The cost of breast implants in our Fort Wayne location depends on the type of implants used. For silicone implants, the cost is $6600 while for saline it is $5900. These figures include the implants, the operating room, anesthesia, and everything associated with the procedure. As a note of caution, some surgeons quote figures that do not include all aspects of the procedure.

Echoing the comments of many of the other repsonders, cost should not be the only consideration in the selection of a surgeon. You should feel a comfort level with their approach and feel that you are both on the same wavelength. You should also look at their photos and get an idea of the type of results that are typical for each surgeon. And the surgeon should be board certified in plastic surgery.(Jeffrey Rockmore, MD, Albany Plastic Surgeon)

Breast Augmentation With Dr Alan L. Stephens

Breast implants in Fort Wayne, IN do not last forever. There is no absolute answer for how long they will last, but the implant shell deteriorates over time.

In general, 10 to 15 years is a reasonable average. With silicone gel implants, an increase in the firmness of the implant can be an early sign of leakage and a reason for replacement.

If your breast hurts and you’re having other problems, I would recommend replacement. (Thomas A. Mustoe, MD, FACS, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)

Unlike the oil in your car which must be changed every 3000 miles or so, your breast implants do not need routine replacement unless you are having a problem with them or want to change to a different size implant.

If you are not experiencing any problems with your implants, you do not need any additional surgery. (Brian Howard, MD, Alpharetta Plastic Surgeon)

Changes in implants should be evaluated

Breast implants do not “expire” in a set time frame. However, they do fatigue and can fail over time. When this happens you may notice a change in the way that your breast feels.

The breast may feel harder or appear smaller or differently shaped. If you experience these symptoms, or notice any other changes in your breast, you should see a board certified plastic surgeon to evaluate the changes and make a surgical plan for treatment if appropriate. (Emily A. Williams, MD, Spokane Plastic Surgeon)

How long do breast implants last?

The incidence of implant rupture is most commonly stated to be 1% per year. This is the number that most plastic surgeons learned during their residencies, but the accuracy of this number in regards to the latest implant technology is difficult to ascertain. The last article that I read indicated that a patient should expect their implant to last 12.5 years.

Does that mean that there is no risk of a rupture before 12.5 years? Absolutely not. It also does not mean that just because an implant has been in place for that long that is necessitates an implant exchange.

I tell my patients that if your implants are soft and symmetric, then leave them alone (regardless of how old they are). (William T. Stoeckel, MD, Raleigh-Durham Plastic Surgeon)

Timespan of breast implants

How long last breast implants after breast aug

A breast implant is never considered a lifetime device. Visit with a board certified plastic surgeon who is very familiar with breast implants- you need an exam and perhaps even an imaging study such as ultrasound or MRI to deterimine if your implant is intact. (Stefan Mark Szczerba, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)

How long do breast implants last?

I’m guessing that most implants will last about 20 years – but no one knows. Breast implants are long lasting but are not meant to “last a lifetime”. It of course depends on a lot of things, like how old you are when you get your implants, what type of implant and what style of implant. Implants have also been made differently through the decade. We believe that the present style of implant will be lasting longer. The information so far says that only about 1 in 10 implants wear out after 10 years. Keep in touch with your Plastic Surgeon for the most up to date information.

How long last breast implants question

If you are having changes in your breasts, as you have described, than you should return for an exam anyway. (Ronald Schuster, MD, Baltimore Plastic Surgeon)

How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

Fort Wayne, IN Implants have gone through several generations of development. The truth is that with the current generation of implants, we really don’t know how long they will last. The general feeling is that if you have no problems with your implants (they are soft, aesthetically pleasing, and haven’t ruptured), they don’t need to be replaced. Previous generations of implants suffered from higher rates of leaking/rupture and accordingly it was recommended that they be changed at set time parameters (e.g. 10 years). In your case, it sounds like there has been an acute change. You should see a plastic surgeon to assess your breast to ensure that you don’t have a collection or rupture or leak. (Asif Pirani, MD, FRCS(C), Toronto Plastic Surgeon)

3-D imaging very helpful for choosing breast implant size

Doctor Robert N. Severinac Breast Operation

This is a common problem that I encountered up until several months ago. I tried various methods that I feel were unreliable – test implants, rice packets, etc.

I have since added the Portrait 3-D three dimensional imaging system to my consultation which allows me to literally place various size implants and show a patient how they will look with out clothing.

I also can show patients why a lift is needed in some cases to give the breast a fuller perkier look. I have resorted to this measure on all my breast augmentation and Augmentation with lift patients.

Combining this with accurate patient measurements will give you the best overall result. You might want to try looking up Axis 3-D or Portrait 3-D on the web to find a doctor in your area who has the system. (Steven Schuster, MD, Boca Raton Plastic Surgeon)

Choose implant size by your proportions

Both silicone and saline breast implants come in a variety of widths, volumes and shapes. The most important consideration for anyone considering augmentation is the base width of their breast, taking into consideration the “normal” 2 – 3cm of cleavage distance and a desired slight projection of the breast past the line of the chest.

A breast implant with a width close to the width of the breast will give a proportional augmentation. Once the width is correct, different volumes and different projections can be considered.

Many websites will have before and after photos with the person’s height, weight, implant size, age and child bearing history.

Finding as close a match as possible to you will allow you to gauge approximately the results you can expect. Too large an implant will not only look out of proportion but will have predictable adverse effects on the chest skin over time.

It is also highly beneficial to visit your board certified plastic surgeon and try on different sizers to see if the choice you had in mind works for you. (Jeffrey M. Darrow, MD, Boston Plastic Surgeon)

Fort Wayne, IN Implant Sizing

I like to stay within the width of the patients base diameter for the breast. Having said that, you also want to stay in proportion to the rest of your body, in particular to your gluteal region.

What you can do is th rice test (which I describe on my website) or try out sizers at the doctors office. (Farbod Esmailian, MD, Orange County Plastic Surgeon)

Breast implant sizing is a personal decision

When deciding what cup size you would like to be following breast augmentation surgery in Fort Wayne, IN, several factors should be taken into account.

  1. The size you think you would like to be
  2. The actual diameter of your breast (measured in your plastic surgeons office)
  3. How you look with implant sizers placed in your bra at your consultation
  4. The amount of skin laxity or sagging your breasts have

The breast shapes and sizes

All of these things must be taken into account to give you the best possible look and fit. All to often, patients present with requests that will not fit them as an individual due to their breast anatomy. The rule of thumb is to have realistic expectations regarding the cup size you would like to achieve.

Make sure you and your board certified plastic surgeon have a thorough discussion and are on the same page with your wishes. This will optomize your results and increase your level of satisfaction with the surgery. (David A. Robinson, MD, Munster Plastic Surgeon)

Breast implant sizing at the time of consultation

Breast shapes and sizes pics

I agree with almost everything that has been posted. I think of all of the decisions a patient has to make regarding breast augmentation, size of the implant is most important. Here is what I do:

  1. listen to the patient – do they want to be conservative or aggressive with the degree of change.
  2. examine the patients taking into consideration all of the things that have been discussed but most importantly the diameter of the ideal implant for that patient.
  3. I have the patient try on sizers at the time of the consult. I give them a general range of implant sizes based on their goals. This gives the patient a tangible idea of the size of an implant and the change it would make. Generally, we choose an implant just a little larger (15 cc or so) than the size the patient considered “ideal”.
  4. For me the choice of profile does not need to be made by the patient. I simply choose the profile that is the appropriate diameter for the patient at the volume that they would prefer. This works very well in my practice and patients are generally quite happy with their size. (York Jay Yates, MD, Salt Lake City Plastic Surgeon)
