  • AR, Katy, TX

    "Dr. Feldman is a great surgeon and makes you feel very comfortable. I looked online for several surgeons and after visiting for my first consultation, Dr. Feldman and all the staff made me feel very comfortable, so I chose to have my Breast Augmentation at Bancroft Feldman Plastic Surgery. Overall, I would rate my final result as a 10, would recommend them to my friends, and will return to Dr. Feldman if I decide to have additional surgery.

    I would like to thank all the staff for their great service! All the staff is awesome, super informative, and helpful!"

  • Bras and the Right Bra after Breast Augmentation

    Patients who have breast augmentation look forward to purchasing bras to showcase their new breasts, but they may not realize how important choosing the right bra is. This is especially true in the beginning, post-surgery, but also over time to make sure both that both the comfort with and appearance of the implants are maintained.

    Immediately following surgery, Dr. Bancroft and Dr. Feldman provide their patients to with a surgical sports bra and specific instructions about wearing it following the procedure. This will help the breasts to heal and the breast implants to remain in the desired position. Patients should be sleeping on their backs for at least 12 weeks. Back sleeping is best for people with implants to prevent implant migration into their armpits. If, after the 12 week healing period, patients want to try sleeping in a side position, they should continue to wear the sports bra at night. We do not recommend stomach sleeping. This will cause the implants to move into the armpit region.

    VSX braAfter the period of healing is complete, patients should wear normal supportive bras during the day. They should get sized before purchasing a bra in order to ensure that its is the right size and has the support necessary for the implants, and the new heavier breasts. Underwire bras are acceptable as long at they fit the implant/breast and do not “dig in.” We do not recommend any one brand or style, as everyone’s chest and ribs are different. Any brand should do as long as you get a “pop” or “push up” from the bra. This demonstrates that the bra is supporting the weight of the implant, instead of the skin.

    Patients should not wear tight fitting or compressive sports bras without a defined cup or side support that just “smash” the breasts, either when sleeping or exercising. For people with natural breasts, this may work as the tighter the sports bra, the better it is, but for breasts that have implants, side and bottom support is essential. For someone with breast implants the goal of a sports bra is support pushing upwards and inwards to ensure the implants don’t move down or to the side over timeMore support or compression is not always better as an extremely tight or poorly fitting bra especially when worn during the critical post-operative healing period (12 weeks), may prevent the breast implants from settling correctly, or deform the breast shape which might require further surgery to correct.

    We recommend a sports bra withbuilt in cups, underwire or side panel that will contain and support the weight of the implant.  We find a sports bra similar to the VSX line at Victoria’s Secret that has a padded underwire to be very popular with our patients. We will provide your surgical bra with a front closure to make it easier to put on and off after surgery, but after 2 weeks you can switch to back closure if you prefer or they fit better.

    While an expertly performed surgery (Dr. Feldman performs 400+ breast augmentations a year within the greater Houston area) is essential to a good breast augmentation outcome, patient self-care after the procedure is as important. Following instructions carefully and choosing the right bra to wear for support are both crucial to maintaining beautiful breast implants.

    Breast Augmentation is an excellent way to both add volume to smaller breasts and, when combined with a lift, to restore a youthful appearance to breasts that have started to droop or sag. With a wide range of implant styles and sizes available at Bancroft Feldman Plastic Surgery, women have the choice of adding a subtle amount of volume to help fill out clothing or choosing a larger implant to dramatically change the shape of their figure. When combined with a lift, augmentation/mastopexy can help correct asymmetrical breasts or restore breasts that have fallen and deflated due to aging or pregnancy. Dr. Feldman is our breast expert and strives to achieve a natural, durable, breast shape and size individualized to each patient’s goals and body type.

    Unsure if you need a lift (mastopexy)? Read Dr. Feldman's RealSelf Post discussing this topic!

    Picking a surgeon for breast enhancement can be a difficult and challenging decision. Drs. Bancroft and Feldman feel the experience and results delivered at Bancroft Feldman Plastic Surgery to be reliable, predictable and pleasing. Read about what to expect at your breast augmentation consult here.

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G Results 
    This ultimately is the ONLY thing that matters. Pricing, implant brand, bra vs. no bra during recovery, proprietary or special techniques, location, year's experience and catchy marketing gimmicks mean nothing if you're disappointed in your end result. Do you want to read about a surgeon's philosophy or see their actual results? A picture is worth a thousand words.

    Before and After Photos of Actual Patients
    All photos on our before & afterand model galleries, are ACTUAL surgical patients of Bancroft Feldman Plastic Surgery. Be careful on competitors' sites as suddenly you're whisked away to a generic gallery of other surgeons photos. Why aren't they showing you their patients? They don't have many or aren't proud of their work! 

    Covering all the Angles
    Compare our before and after gallery. We show you every view/angle of every patient. Why do our competitors' only show 1 view? Why does patient A have a frontal and patient B have a side view? They're hiding their less than ideal results in those views. Now remember that's likely their best work, so what does an average result look like?

    Volume and Sub-specialization
    Dr. Feldman specializes only in breast enhancement. We operate on 500+ breast patients annually, and see even more consults. As a result Dr. Feldman can identify particular issues with your breasts the competition will miss, ignore or not know how to correct. If you don't identify a particular breast deformity, how can you assemble a treatment plan? Ask your surgeon how many breast augmentations they did last year, not how long they've been in practice. Practice makes perfect and gray hair doesn't guarantee a better result!

    Consultation with Dr. Feldman
    Dr. Feldman, your actual surgeon, will spend an hour with you at your consult. Don't make such an important decision based on pamphlets, videos or non-surgeon staff members! We encourage second opinions so you can compare our consult experience to our competitors'. Did you spend more than 5 minutes with the surgeon? Did you have an exam with a full set of measurements? Did they explain dimensional planning? Did they discuss your preoperative breast anatomy, any deformities present, and whether they will improve, stay the same or could get worse with augmentation?

    Dr. Feldman will make specific recommendations for your body and breasts based on: 1) dimensional planning 2) expressed goals 3) amount and quality of tissue to hide the implant.

    Only a board certified plastic surgeon specializing in augmentations (meaning they do 300+ a year) will have the expertise, knowledge and experience to understand and explain these subtle differences to you. Don’t trust your result to an office that gave you a video, pamphlet or patient coordinator rather than the surgeon to answer these important questions!

  • Breast Implant Placement: Above or Below the Muscle

    There are three planes used for breast implant placement to increase a woman’s breast size. These are: subglandular, subfascial, and submuscular. Within the anatomy of the chest are breast tissue/mammary glands, a layer of muscle called the pectoralis major muscle, and behind that another layer called the pectoralis minor muscle. Subglandular placement means that the implant is inserted directly behind the mammary gland and in front of both layers of muscle. Subfascial placement means that the implant is partially inserted under the fascia (the connective tissue) of the pectoral major muscle, but still above the muscle itself.Submuscular placement means that the implant is inserted under the pectoralis major muscle and above the pectoralis minor. Dual Plane means just that, as much as possible is placed under the pectoralis major muscle with some implant peeking out from the lower muscle edge under the breast tissue, as the muscle and breast borders are not always lined up.

    In general, the benefits of submuscular/dual plane breast implant placement are:

    1. Better superior (upper) coverage/hiding the implant in your cleavage where you will show them off the most

    2. Much lower rates of capsular contracture or scar tissue build up around the implant

    3. Most importantly, breast implants under the muscle do not interfere with your mammogram

    Therefore, Dr. Feldman firmly believes that submuscular/dual plane implant placement is the best choice for overall patient health and optimal breast aesthetics. Addtionaly, he does not believe there to be any lasting benefit of subglandular (or sub fascial) placement. If your breasts are entirely below the muscle he will recommend a mastopexy (lift), not subglandular placement, to take advantage of the benefits mentioned above regarding submuscular/dual plane implant placement.

    A submuscular implant looks better, feels softer for longer and doesn’t interfere with mammograms, giving you the best chance at early breast cancer detection and highest cure rate should it develop. However, it’s not always that simple. Many times the bottom edge of the pectoralis major muscle ends higher than your natural breast crease. If the placement of breast implants lies completely under the muscle it “rides high” and delivers a less than ideal aesthetic result, with your natural breast “falling off” the front of the implant. Therefore, to prevent that, Dr. Feldman frequently utilizes a dual plane implant placement. This means as much of the upper portion of the implant is under the muscle, for all the reasons listed above, but a small portion of the implant “peeks” out from under the muscle so the implant is nearly centered under the nipple. There are different degrees of dual plane release (I, II, III) but Dr. Feldman will do as little a release as possible to achieve an optimal aesthetic result, thereby leaving maximum muscle coverage.

    Just about the only downside to putting implants under the muscle is what's called an animation deformity. An animation deformity is an expectation, not complication, with submuscular or dual plane implant placement. Every woman, worldwide, with breast implants placed under the muscle, regardless of surgeon, has some widening and distortion of her cleavage when flexing/engaging her pectoralis muscle. This change in breast and cleavage appearance with muscle contraction is known as animation deformity. In fact, when a patient can't remember where her implants were placed, Dr. Feldman will have her flex her muscle and watch her cleavage as a diagnostic test! How noticable this change with flexion is depends on how strong the pectorlis muscle is and where the bottom of the muscle was located relative to the natural breast crease. Ultimately, some distortion of cleavage, a few percent of the time when you're flexing your muscle, is far better than a permanent "bolted on" uber fake look, with visible 360 degrees rippling 100% of the time. Therefore, an animation deformity is a worthy tradeoff for all the abvementioned benefits of submuscular implant placement.


    During your breast augmentation consultation Dr. Feldman will discuss breast implant placement options, and during the exam he will determine where your pectoralis major muscle ends compared to your breast fold to estimate the level of dual plane release required to optimize your breast appearance.

  • Breast Implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

    First, it’s important to clarify:

    • ALCL is not breast cancer.
    • It’s extremely rare, with a total of 359 cases ever reported in the 55 year history of breast implants, versus 692 women diagnosed every single day in the US alone with breast cancer.
    • ALCL seems to have a very strong link, if not exclusivity, to textured implant shells.
    • 99.9% of the implants placed by Dr. Feldman have smooth shells.
    • With proper diagnosis and timely treatment ALCL is a curable illness.

    “In 2011, the FDA identified a possible association between breast implants and the development of anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare type of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

    At that time (2011), the FDA knew of so few cases of this disease (approximately 30 cases in more than 10-20 million woman with breast implants) that it was not possible to determine what factors increased the risk. In a report summarizing the Agency's findings, we emphasized the need to gather additional information to better characterize ALCL in women with breast implants.

    Since 2011, we have strengthened our understanding of this condition and concur with the World Health Organization designation of breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) as a rare T-cell lymphoma that can develop following breast implants. The exact number of cases remains difficult to determine due to significant limitations in world-wide reporting and lack of global implant sales data. At this time, most data suggest that BIA-ALCL occurs more frequently following implantation of breast implants with textured surfaces (approximately 90%) rather than those with smooth surfaces (approximately 10%).”

    “As of February 1, 2017, the FDA has received a total of 359 medical device reports (MDRs) of BIA-ALCL, including nine deaths. There are 231 reports that included information on the implant surface. Of these, 203 were reported to be textured implants and 28 reported to be smooth implants. Most of the reports contained no information about the surface textures of any previous implants. In addition, 312 of the 359 reports included information on implant fill types. Of these, 186 reported implants filled with silicone gel and 126 reported implants filled with saline.

    It is important to note that details on breast implant surface and fill type are limited. While the MDR system is a valuable source of information, it may contain incomplete, inaccurate, untimely, unverified, or biased data. Over time, we may gather more information about a report and thus the numbers listed above may change.”

    “A significant body of medical literature has been published since our 2011 report, including additional case histories and comprehensive reviews of the natural history and long-term outcomes of the disease. Most of the cases in the literature reports describe a history of the use of textured implants. Several recent journal articles explore the risk factors for BIA-ALCL, including the methods used to create surface texture of the implant and the role of biofilm in causing disease, among others. All of the information to date suggests that women with breast implants have a very low but increased risk of developing ALCL compared to women who do not have breast implants. Most cases of breast implant-associated ALCL are treated by removal of the implant and the capsule surrounding the implant and some cases have been treated by chemotherapy and radiation.”

    In addition to the FDA, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) has also been involved. “The ASPS/PSF and FDA are collaborating to conduct research and develop a Breast Implant-Associated ALCL Registry, the PROFILE Registry, to increase the scientific data on ALCL in women with breast implants."

    The FDA database identified 359 cases of BIA-ALCL as of February 1, 2017. The FDA acknowledges “the MDR system is a valuable source of information, but it may contain incomplete, inaccurate, untimely, unverified, or biased data.” As such, the ASPS task force created the PROFILE database, which has identified 126 confirmed unique cases of BIA-ALCL as of the most recent report available, and a peer reviewed exhaustive literature review published in 2015 identified 173 cases.

    The strongest unifying theme, in both databases and literature is the extremely strong link, or even exclusivity, to textured implant shells. The FDA databank identified 28 cases BIA-ALCL with smooth implants in place at time of diagnosis; however, each and every one, previously had textured implants. That means every case of BIA-ALCL, with record of implant specifics, had textured implants at some point prior to diagnosis!

    The leading theory regarding development of ALCL is based on chronic irritation or inflammation in breast pocket, resulting from textured implant shell surface and low level implant “biofilm” infection. Both of these risk factors are currently, and always have been, specifically addressed and thereby mitigated by Dr. Feldman’s implant selection and techniques.

    The good news is that Dr. Feldman often recommended against, and rarely used textured implants. In fact, 99.9% of the implants placed by Dr. Feldman have smooth shells. This instantly reduces your risk of ALCL by at least 90%. In fact, no cases have been documented with smooth shell implants and no prior exposure to textured devices.

    If you have an Allergan Natrelle Saline 68LP, 68MP, 68HP, Natrelle Silicone Classic Style 10, 15, 20, 45, Allergan Natrelle Silicone Inspira SRL, SRLP, SRM, SRF, SRX, Allergan Natrelle Silicone Inspira Soft Touch SSL, SSLP, SSM, SSF, SSX or Allergan Natrelle Silicone Inspira Cohesive SCL, SCLP, SCM, SCF, or SCX  implants these all have smooth shells. This information was on the card you were given after surgery. If you’re a patient of Dr. Feldman and have lost or misplaced your card, call or email the office (info@bfprs.com) and we can send you a pdf scanned copy of your implant information. The overwhelming majority of implants placed by Dr. Feldman are Allergan 68MP, 68HP for saline, and Style 15 (moderate plus profile), 20 (high profile), SRM (moderate plus profile) and SRF (full profile) for silicone.

    Additionally, Dr. Feldman takes extensive precautions to prevent implant infections and contamination. He is uniquely qualified when it comes to understanding breast implant infections, as he published a landmark paper regarding the bacteriology of breast implant infections, in the world’s largest medical center, Houston’s very own Texas Medical center, documenting over 70% are resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). As a breast implant infection was previously known to be breast threatening complication and now may be linked to ALCL, impeccable sterile technique and infection avoidance is essential. In addition to very powerful, MRSA active oral and IV antibiotics, nearly all of Dr. Feldman’s implant surgeries are performed in our AAAASF surgery suite, thereby avoiding the contaminated hospital environment, and with the same OR team every time. Lastly, all silicone implants are placed with Keller funnel to further avoid contamination and skin contact. These exhaustive precautions have been successful in avoiding implant infections, and now will pay further dividends, potentially reducing the risk of ALCL even further, in addition to the smooth implant shell discussed above.

    Let’s put this all into perspective. Regardless of implants or no implants, 1 in 8 woman or 12.5% of woman develop breast cancer, but no one is in a panic, publishing headlines, about that. 359 cases of ALCL have been reported worldwide out of over 20 million women with implants in the 55 year history of breast implants. That’s 0.001795%. 252,710 women are expected to be diagnosed with breast cancer in US alone in 2017, that’s 692 women per day, or double the number ever diagnosed with ALCL.

    Recent literature indicates there is a 100% cure rate for those treated without a delay in diagnosis as was the case in the reported ALCL deaths. The key to successful treatment is proper identification of the symptoms, timely diagnosis and treatment. The condition usually presents as, spontaneous, unilateral swelling of the breast 3-14 years after augmentation. It may also present as a lump in the breast or axillary lymph nodes (armpit). Proper diagnosis may include ultrasound and/or MRI. If seroma fluid is present on imaging it should be sampled and sent for cytological laboratory analysis. Definitive treatment includes surgical removal of implant and surrounding capsule.

    If a patient currently has textured breast implants and has not experienced any sudden changes in the way her breasts looks or feels, the current consensus recommendation of the ASPS and FDA is that no treatment is needed, but rather to monitor for changes. Should any those occur they recommend quickly contacting a board certified plastic surgeon for evaluation.

  • BV, Houston TX

    “I absolutely love Bancroft Feldman surgery. I have received so many compliments from people, and they are always amazed at Dr. Feldman’s work. I’ve had several people ask me for his contact information so that they can schedule a consultation. Dr. Feldman asked me what my goals were and reassured me that he would do everything possible to meet my goals. Courtney and Jeannette were also very helpful throughout the process. They provided great support, were always smiling and friendly, and responded to emails in a very timely manner. Throughout my surgery, I felt like everyone involved truly cared about me.

    The price for breast augmentation was very reasonable, and I had read good reviews online. Furthermore, Dr. Feldman’s background provided me with confidence that he knew what he was doing, and the atmosphere of the office during my consultation was very warm and friendly. The staff is absolutely amazing . I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Feldman and the staff at Bancroft Feldman Surgery!”

  • CL, Pasadena, TX

    "I cannot believe that one year ago today Dr. Feldman changed my life!  I am so thankful that I found him to fix my breast issues that I didnt realize I had even though I knew something was wrong. If it wasn't for him and the results that he has given I never would be as confident as I am today.  This was the best decision I ever made. Thank you, thank you, thank you and a million times more! Can't be happier than I am today because of his work!"

  • CT, Pearland, TX

    "I want to thank Dr. Feldman and the rest of the staff for the excellent care you gave my wife before, during and after her breast augmentation surgery. I am a healthcare provider and the professionalism and excellence your staff displayed is among the highest I have seen.

    When my wife told me she wanted to undergo breast augmentation surgery a year ago, I was a little hesitant because of some of the horror stories you see on tv and having friends whose wives were unhappy with their breast enhancements.  After speaking with Dr. Feldman during my wife's initial consultation, I felt completely at ease. Dr. Feldman took the time to explain the procedure in detail and I was extremely confident he would do a superior job...and he did. Dr. Feldman was very thorough in his post-surgical instructions to assure the best possible results. I was also impressed with the ease of making appointments and the convenience of having the procedure done in the same office instead of some distant surgical site. The surgery was relatively short and my wife's recovery was much easier than we had anticipated.

    This was an incredibly positive experience for both of us.  My wife's breasts look perfect in every way, her confidence is sky high and we are both very pleased. I have already referred a couple of friends and would highly recommend Dr. Feldman as a plastic surgeon for anyone."

  • DH, Katy, TX

    "I am so pleased with the exceptional bedside manner of Dr. Feldman. I initially went to him for Botox and recently decided on getting a breast augmentation. I am so pleased with the work and skills that Dr. Feldman has offered me. I have already recommended most of my friends and family. The office is in a great location and the staff is incredible. If you are interested in the best breast out there, Dr. Feldman is the right choice."

  • DR, Gainesville, TX

    " Dr. Feldman and his staff are so awesome, my experience is one that I will share with friends. I have wanted this procedure for many many years and now I am so satisfied with the way my clothes fit and the overall appearance of my breasts. I like the fact that Dr. Feldman was very knowledgeable about the procedure. He was familiar with surgery on African American women. He was honest in what would be the most desirable look. He was very professional and was not focused on money, but on giving me the best results. His staff was very helpful and knowledgable especially Jeannette. Lastly, the before and after photos that Dr. Feldman has posted were far better than some I had seen in the DFW area. So I chose to drive 5 ½ hours to see the best."

     

     

  • ESJ, Houston, TX

    "I really am unbelievably pleased with my breast augmentation results. They look and FEEL so real already and its only been a month! Compared to others experiences with different doctors I don't think anyone comes close to how amazing this experience has been for me."

  • Estimated Breast Augmentation Revision Base Fee Schedule

    Every plastic surgeon has a few patients who will require breast implant revision surgery or have complications requiring additional medical care and/or surgery. As you have been or will be told, no surgeon can guarantee a result or promise zero complications. In cosmetic procedures there are certain problems that will happen statistically, no matter how good the care, or how careful the doctor and team. Examples of problems that may be encountered are bleeding, infection, capsular contracture or an unfavorable scar after a surgical procedure. It may be necessary to return to surgery, either on an emergency basis (as in the case with bleeding) or an elective basis (as in the case of scarring), perform additional diagnostic testing/procedures, admit the patient to the hospital and/or consult physicians from other specialties.

    The most frustrating part of Dr. Feldman's practice is when patients' fail to recognize the importance of following post-operative care instructions. Many of the complications encountered after breast augmentation are preventable, and directly attributable to not following activity restrictions, supportive bra use and/or massage after surgery. Compliance with our instructions, and restrictions, plays as large a role, or even larger, in your result as the surgery itself. We collectively call this "pride of ownership." Unfortuantely, actions have consequences, and many times overuse will lead to bleeding, bruising, hematoma, contracture, implant malposition or symmastia. Most of Dr. Feldman's patients over do it, most get away with it, but about 5% don't, meaning 5 out of every 100 surgeries require another operation in the first 6 months that could have been avoided by following instructions.

    Fixing suboptimal results is hard and will ultimately end up costing more money, for a less pleasing result. Breasts are "cousins not sisters or twins," and therefore the best possible outcome of primary augmentation is first cousins. Each additional surgery drops one level lower, meaning the best possible outcome of a revision surgery is second cousins, third surgery, third cousins, and by the 4th of 5th surgery, neighbors or strangers. This is why following our specific instructions to reduce the chance of needing more surgery is so important.  

    It is our policy, as a predetermined courtesy to our patients, not to charge a surgeon’s fee for complications or revisional surgery within 6 months from the original surgery date. We do, however, expect the patient to pay whatever other expenses, including, but not limited to, hospital, medication/pharmacy, consulting physician, anesthesia, laboratory, implant and radiology fees that arise as a result of treatment of a complication. If the breast augmentation revisional surgery occurs in our office facility within 6 months, the patient is responsible for the expense of the facility, anesthesia and implant, if applicable, outlined below.

    After 6 months, this revision fee schedule is NOTapplicable. Additionally, there is a $250 fee for in-office evaluation (starting 6 months after surgery) at which a new quote may be provided, for any requested procedures.

    Should any complication occur due to external factors, as determined solely by the surgeon/staff, including, but not limited to trauma, overuse, non-compliance with post-operative instructions/restrictions, failure to massage or wear supportive bras, missing or rescheduling follow-up appointments, pregnancy, weight loss/gain, smoking, illicit drug use, or new tattoos/piercings during healing, the below estimated base fee schedule is not applicable, and a new quote may be provided if revision surgery is offered. Revision surgery will not be offered, at any price, to patient's who demonstrate continued non-compliance.

    We hope that no complication arises and no revisional surgery is necessary in your case. However, no plastic surgeon can guarantee this to their patients. It is important for the patient undergoing an elective surgical procedure to understand this financial/revision policy and fee schedule.

    "I loved the staff at Bancroft Feldman. You guys made me feel welcomed and Jeannette was the best. Always friendly and wanting to help as much as she could. Dr. Feldman was respectful and very professional at his work. I ultimately selected you to do my Breast Augmentation because of the special you guys had for the summer and not needing to go to the hospital for surgery."

     

  • How quickly do I need to have a deflated saline implant replaced?

    Although there are no medical, health or safety risks to waiting, after a few weeks the pocket/capsule around the deflated implant begins contracting and scarring down. This creates a cosmetic issue. If you wait 3-6 months, for financial or logistical reasons, you now have to remove all the crinkled contracted scar tissue. When the same implant that deflated is repalced, the breasts no longer will look as good, or as symmetric, as they did prior to failure due to contracture of that pocket and necessary surgical capsulectomy. You now have apples on one side and bananas on the other.

    As such, after seeing some less than ideal, delayed, ruptured saline exchanges from other surgeons, in my practice, I require patients to either: 1) have a failed saline implant exchanged within 2 weeks of deflation, or if not possible, 2) require them to voluntarily deflate the other breast implant and wait a minimum 6-8 weeks, with both deflated, so upon replacement the same procedure is then performed on both sides to yield the best symmetry and result. It's all about one thing, the best possible result, as well as durability, not what's the cheapest. An unhappy patient no longer cares about price, and would ultimately spend more trying to improve symmetry.

    I explain this policy to any of my patients who select saline (less than 1%) before their primary augmentation and before seeing a failed device from another surgeon.

  • How to Choose the Right Breast Size

    When a woman decides to have breast augmentation, size of her breasts in the present and the future is a big part of her motivation. She has an idea in her mind of what she would like her improved breasts to look like. But is there a “right” sized breast for any one individual and how do you choose between a “B,” a “C,” or a “DD” implant? There are a number of factors that go into making that decision, but the volume of the implant itself is the least important of them.

     

    In order to be comfortable and look right your breast implant must be sized to fit your chest, you breast envelope, and your goals. We’ll explain what these mean. It's not as simple as just picking a cup size. Additionally, creating a "wish list" of photos of other breasts are not predictive of your results. What your breasts look like now is the single largest influence on your result!

     

    • Chest - The correct breast implant needs to match the patient’s overall figure. This is more difficult than it looks as there are a number of factors that affect breast appearance including height, ribcage and chest circumference, shoulder size, and current cup size.

    • Breast envelope - Both a woman’s breast base width and her soft tissue envelope will limit what is possible for her in terms of implant size.

    • Goals - There is no one right way for any woman’s breasts to look, whether that be natural or on the full side of natural. Women see themselves differently and they imagine their ideal selves differently as well. On physically identical women, the same implant might seem too large to one and too small to another. It can be disconcerting, at first, to try on and see how different implants can change their overall look, but a good plastic surgeon is there to guide the patient to explore the possibilities within the boundaries of what will work for her. It’s important that the surgeon take the time to listen to and fully understand what the patient wants to look like. Once this is clear, he can use his expertise and familiarity with various products to help her achieve that look.

     

    To begin this or any other process of plastic surgery, make sure to choose a qualifiedboard certified plastic surgeon who will do a full set of measurements, and size you in person. At Bancroft Feldman we make sure that both a thorough examination and listening to our patients’ personal goals are both a part of our free consultation process. We want you to look and feel your best after the surgery is complete, and that cannot happen without your input and thorough measuring.

     

  • I am constipated after my breast augmentation, is this normal? I tried a stool softener, or took a laxative and it didn't work.

    Constipation after surgery is common and results from anesthesia and pain medication coupled with dehydration. Depending how regular or backed up you were before surgery, how many pain pills you are taking (if you're taking 2 every 4 hours you will become EXTREMELY constipated) and how well you have rehydrated after surgery, will control how aggressive you will need to be with laxatives. We recommend Dulcolax, Miralax or Sennakot (Senna plus has laxative and softener). It will typically take 3-5 doses, so don't give up after a single dose. Dr. Feldman typically recommends a sports drink like Gatorade or PowerAde to help you rehydrate until you have crystal clear urine. Begin taking a single laxative dose on post-op day 2, with another 1-2 doses on post-op day 3, and if you haven't gone at that point, to take one dose every 2 hours on post-op day 4 until you go. Be careful what you wish for, as prescription laxatives are very potent and typically will result in diarrhea. If you haven't gone after 5 doses of over the counter laxative of choice, you may want to get a 2-pack of mineral oil enemas and bottle of magnesium citrate. Use a mineral oil enema first to lubricate, then drink the entire bottle of mag citrate and use second mineral oil enema 30-60 mins after mag citrate if you haven’t had a bowel movement. If you are persistent with laxatives, hydration and enemas, if needed, you will have a bowel movement. Once you've stopped taking your narcotic pain medication and clear your system, your bowels will return to normal movements.
