SRX & SRF Breast Implants

Breast implants

A few months back, my dear friend and colleague Dr. Robert Kotler came by my office and asked if I would discuss these new breast implants he has been hearing about by Allergan. During the video, I discuss the Natrelle INSPIRA® breast implants that I have been using for just about a year now.

The first implant I discuss is the SRX extra-full profile silicone implant, which has a smooth shell surface and provides patients with the fullest, roundest look. This silicone gel is excellent for women who do not have a lot of tissue because it reduces visible implant rippling and wrinkles.

The second implant I discuss is the SRF full-profile silicone implant designed to have increased durability with a smooth shell and full projection. This implant provides a significant amount of fullness in the upper pole of the breasts but has a slightly wider base than the SRX.

I truly enjoyed discussing this topic with Dr. Kotler, and I thought I would share his video from his YouTube channel.

Popular Plastic Surgery Procedure For Men

Early this month (March 8, 2017), FoxNews.com published a piece on “The 5 Most Popular Plastic Surgeries For Men” by Stephanie Bucklin, which was based on the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s statistics on the most popular plastic surgery procedures of 2016. One of the top procedures for men was male breast reduction (gynecomastia surgery).

In my Beverly Hills practice, I am presented often with men who are looking to restore a more naturally masculine appearance to their chest. Gynecomastia is a very common occurrence among men; however, there isn’t one single cause for this condition. There are several factors that have been studied that may cause gynecomastia, including a high level of estrogen, Klinefelter Syndrome (chromosomal abnormality), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland), aging (causes low levels of testosterone), and steroids, which can manipulate testosterone and estrogen levels.

The great news is we can treat this condition in a discreet and relatively painless manner. If you have gynecomastia, don’t let it keep you from feeling confident.

Explantation & Breast Reduction With Lift

Pre-Op & Post-Op (day one)

Pre-Op & Post-Op (day one)

The female patient presented was looking to have her breast implants removed and wanting to improve her breast appearance without placing new implants. During her examination, she expressed she was hoping to have a breast lift and reduction. After discussing her expectations, we agreed to perform an explantation (implant removal), mammoplasty (reduction), and mastopexy (breast lift).

The video below shows the pre-op marking where I go over the implant removal, breast reduction, and a full breast lift (mastopexy)  using a wise pattern anchor approach.

During her surgery, I removed the high placed breast implants and performed a breast reduction (removing some tissue and skin to reshape and reduce the size of the breast) and a lift to bring the breasts to a higher and more youthful position.

The post-op (day one) photo shows a drain placed to help decompress the space around the pedicle that was created as well as wearing a Linder Bra to provide support after surgery.  The patient is happy, and she has achieved a nice shape and symmetrical balance.

Breast Revision With Benelli Lift

breast revision and lift

The female patient presented is 32-years-old looking to remove her over 10-year implants and improve her breast appearance. During her examination, she expressed she was looking to have a lift as well as have an increase in volume. After discussing her expectation, we agreed to replace the old implants and perform a mastopexy (breast lift).

During her surgery, I removed the implants, replaced them with high profile saline 550cc, and overfilled to 640cc. I provided a supportive sling for the implant by maintaining the inframammary (under the breast) fold to preserve a natural breast shape. For the right breast, I performed a Benelli lift or donut mastopexy to raise the nipple slightly.

As you can see, the patient is only a few days post-op, but she has achieved nice volume and symmetrical balance.
