Inspira Silicone Gel Allergan Pharmaceuticals

Dr. Linder has had the privilege to have consignment of the new Inspira silicone gel implants series by Allergan Pharmaceuticals.  He has been using these implants for over eight months.  Only a select group of plastic surgeons in the United States have the honor and privilege to use the new Allergan silicone Inspira gel series.  He prefers both the SRF, which has replaced the Style 20 gel implant and the SRX, which has replaced the Style 45 Allergan gel implant.  These implants are greatly preferred by Dr. Linder because they are more cohesive with more silicone gel within the implant, over 90% fill, and therefore visible rippling is significantly less.  He does not prefer to use the SRM in the majority of patients who have thin tissue because the moderate profile SRMs do still so visibility and rippling in some patients.  However, the SRF and SRX have great increase fill and are way superior over the previous Style 20 and 45 gel implants.

The following three patients above all underwent SRF silicone gel augmentation that is the natural appearance of the upper pole, soft breasts with excellent cleavage and no visible rippling.  The Allergan Pharmaceutical series of implants continues to improve over time, especially with the new Inspira gels.  These implants should be placed in the dual plane technique or subpectoral pocket.  Dr. Linder performs periareolar approach and patients have had excellent results and are very satisfied with the final appearance with these more cohesive gel implants.

Body Contouring of Thighs, Hips and Knees

The female patient presented was requesting to address her outer thighs, inner thighs, hips, and inner knees. During her consultation, she discussed the chafing and touching of her inner thighs and the fat deposits on the lateral thighs and the muffin top or hip area. All of these areas are difficult for many women to remove through diet and exercise and, therefore, elect for liposuction surgery.
To address the knees, a small stab incision was made in the medial knee area (inner knee), and a small fat pad was suctioned out smoothly and evenly without skin laxity. Along with the medial knees, we also sculpted the fat deposits of the body, medial and lateral thighs, and the hips concurrently.
After six weeks of wearing postoperative compressive garments, the patient is recovering well, and, as you can see, she is looking great.

Primary Breast Augmentation Pre-Op Marking

In this video, Dr. Linder explains how he marks the patient prior to primary breast augmentation surgery.
During the pre-op marking, Dr. Linder explains to the patient as he plans his approach to the procedure. His focus during this marking is to ensure symmetry in nipple height and position, breast size and shape, breast diameter, implant size selection, incision location, and other physical features which will affect the outcome of the breast augmentation.

Removal of Ruptured Breast Implant

I was presented a 49 year old female patient with with a ruptured implant of the left side. She stated that her primary augmentation was over 13 years ago and they had used Maghan 360cc.  During the consultation we discussed her goals and outlined the approach to achieve her breast revision and enhancement.

For both left and right  breast we selected 400cc silicone high profile saline implants.  As you can see from the 6 week post op photo the augmentation achieved a nice symmetrical balance. Also, to the far right she is wearing one of my Linder Bras during her recovery as recommended.

Unliateral Gynecomastia Procedure

Male Breast Reduction

I was presented a 22-year-old male that was complaining about enlargement and pain in his right breast area. During the consultation and examination, it was determined that he had a benign enlargement of the right breast resulting from a proliferation of the glandular component of the breast.

The surgery was scheduled, and the procedure was a unilateral gynecomastia performed with the patient under general anesthesia supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The photo to the right shows four weeks post-op, and the enlarged breast has been reduced to balance with his left breast.
