Liz was a 98 Rock listener who called in when we were having a discussion about breast augmentation.
Her story was inspiring! She was a single mom of two who had recently graduated college and was starting a new profession. She was struggling with some self-confidence issues. We decided to help her do something to boost her self-esteem and continue on her path to success.
Check out where Liz is now and how she feels about her Breast Augmentation 7 years later!
In 1992 the FDA withdrew their clearance for silicone implants to be used for cosmetic augmentations over safety concerns if the implant were to rupture.
Silicone breast implants have since become the most closely studied medical device of any kind and have definitively been shown to be safe, even in the event of rupture.
The gel inside modern implants has the consistency comparable to gummy bears candy. In fact, "rupture" really should be called "shell cracking" because there is no spillage of gel or change in shape of the implant.
Fear of ending up too big or too small is a fear many prospective breast augmentation patients have. Crisalix is our 3-D software that allows us to show patients what they will look like with different size and shaped implants before the surgery.
