Textured implants (including shaped 'gummy bear') are silicone implants with a rough texture that sticks to tissue. The texturing prevents them from rotating in the implant pocket. Although the data is not yet conclusive, these implants have been implicated in certain rare health conditions.

IDEAL IMPLANT STRUCTURE (right)

 

                                                               


Dr Bartsich also performs BREAST REDUCTION, BREAST LIFT, and BREAST RECONSTRUCTION, all with state of the art techniques.

For breast reconstruction, Dr Bartsich uses the Aeroform tissue expander.  This amazing device allows patients to expand themselves at home in weeks instead of months of doctor visit. The expansion is gradual, comfortable, and produces better quality skin and therefore a better reconstructive result. 

Never Need a Bra Again!!

"My breast reduction technique involves rearranging existing tissue to create cleavage and narrow the breast, while providing an internal support structure. My breast lift technique does not remove any existing breast tissue if the patient is happy with her size. It replaces tissue at the cleavage line, lifts the nipple, and supports a more youthful shape. In both cases, most patients no longer need to wear a bra."
