Possible Health Concerns
SALINE SILICONE IDEAL IMPLANT
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.
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."
STATE OF THE ART RECONSTRUCTION
As a breast surgery specialist, I am proficient in both implant and autologous tissue breast reconstruction. I work closely with both general surgeons and oncologists to coordinate the optimal treatment plan for breast cancer patients based on their personal goals and reconstructive constraints. I proudly offers tissue expansion with the revolutionary AEROFORM air expander, that allows patients to self-expand at home in a fraction of the time and with better results in terms of skin quality. Ask me about all of the newest technologies, and how they complement each other to help your journey to feeling whole again.
