About Breast Implants
Breast augmentation is one of the most frequent cosmetic procedures performed, not only in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Mesa, but in the entire United States. With dramatic improvements in breast implant design and technology, more and more women are undergoing the breast enhancement procedure.
Dr. Flint strongly prefers silicone breast implants due to their natural look and feel. Current-generation silicone implants have exceptionally low shell failure rates. It is a common myth that breast implants have to be replaced every ten years. While breast implants are not lifetime devices, currently available performance data suggests that the vast majority of implants last longer than ten years.
More importantly, it was proven years ago that leaking implants do not result in a higher rate of disease processes in women. The new silicone gel implants have cohesive gel that is very thick, and so it does not ooze out into surrounding tissues if the shell breaks.
Dr. Flint performs hundreds of breast augmentations and is very informative in consultation. She encourages you to do your research about the procedure prior to surgery.
