Are silicone implants really safe?

U.S. Food and Drug Administration re-approved silicone gel implants in 2006, after many years of intensive study. No link has ever been found between silicone and serious health conditions. In fact, silicone has many uses inside the body including in artificial joints. Read about silicone safety in some of the studies we’ve collected for you.

Why do I need breast augmentation along with my breast lift?

Some women who consult with Dr. Kaufman about a breast lift are surprised to hear him recommend breast implants. The fact is, many women who need a lift also need to add fullness to the upper portion of their breasts. This is often the case with women after pregnancy and breastfeeding, and significant weight loss.

Will I be able to breastfeed after I get implants?

Although there’s no guarantee, most women are able to breastfeed after breast enlargement surgery.

Is there any way to know if my nipple sensation will be affected?

If your surgical plan calls for incisions around the areolas, your nipple sensation may be affected temporarily. After recovery, most women find their sensation returns completely, although a small percentage notice a permanent change.
