Are Silicone Breast Implants Safe?


Despite past debates regarding the safety of silicone breast implants, the FDA continues to stand by its approval with supporting evidence. As it turns out, the previous silicone implant restrictions prior to 2006 were based on unsubstantiated health concerns within the United States, and after many years of on-going research, today they are considered a safe breast implant option in countries around the world.

While silicone breast implants pose no inherent threat, it is still important for potential breast implant candidates to make a well informed decision regarding their surgery. Ft. Myers cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Mandraccia can help you decide if breast implants are right for you.

As with any type of surgery, there are always health risks to consider, which is why Dr. Mandraccia makes it his priority to provide you with top of the line care before, during and after your procedure. We will help you prepare for your surgery both physically and mentally, and after we perform the procedure, we will provide you with expert guidance to help you recover as quickly and safely as possible.

Still, it is important to understand that even after a successful procedure is performed and you have recovered, your implants may require more attention in the years to come. Some women can experience complications later on in life depending on their individual circumstances. These are all things that Dr. Mandraccia will discuss with you before your surgery.
