Breast Implant Safety


Breast implants are quite safe. However, as the patient you must realize there are some small risks regarding breast implants. They can rupture and require replacement. They can require different surgery over time and additional expenses over time. It is unlikely that they will ever harm you in any way as long as they were managed and cared for annularly by your physician your gynecologist or your plastic surgeon. It important however that you are informed. Dr. Jacobsen wants you to be completely informed.

The Mentor Corporation is an American Corporation that makes the majority of breast implants in this country. They are committed to safety and to patient’s satisfaction. Mentor understands some of the issues of safety that I have addressed in other parts of this website and they have specific materials that you can review that I have listed links to and added PDFs that you can download and repeat at your leisure.

Here are some of the safety issues associated with silicone gel implants and saline implants.

The following is a document written that is 60 pages long that has all the elements and descriptions of the implant device and information about sizes and shapes and a huge compendium of information that may be worth reviewing. Dr. Jacobsen can go over these things with you as well.

Dr. Jacobsen uses the Mentor implants because he feels they are well-made and very safe and consistent. The Mentor Corporation is very committed to ensuring that women are safe and are happy and care for these women and follow-up with their woman very carefully as well. They keep a compendium of records of all women that have these breast implants and follow-up on any complications or failures that may occur. Dr. Jacobsen is always been impressed with this company and has visited their factory in Dallas Texas that is involved in the manufacturing process and has spoken directly to the technicians and multiple scientists that have developed them and are continuing to improve them.

It’s important for you to understand all the elements of the breast device. Reading some of these materials will be very helpful to you.

Dr J and his staff look forward to understanding the details of your unique case, desires and aspirations, and to providing you with realistic, safe and attainable results that leave you looking beautiful, and truly feeling like yourself.

  • review rating 5  I'm having a hard time with this because, I can't say enough good things about this office! Dr. Jacobsen is an amazing surgeon. He is always available, for any questions or concern. His staff go way beyond any other office I have seen. They are more than helpful with insurance, appointments, or any issue or questions. The office is both beautiful, and comfy. Like I said can't say enough.

  • review rating 5  I couldn't be happier with my procedure. Dr. J has the most kind and relaxing manner and he is the ultimate professional. I had a fatty tumor on my forehead that he removed, as well as breast reconstruction. The breast reconstruction was overdue as I had breast cancer with multiple lumpectomies, biopsies and radiation. It left the tissue hard and my old implant like a rock. He was able to correct all of the problems and I'm much happier with my appearance. Although you may find it odd at first that you can't get anyone by phone their response time is amazing. I emailed the office on a Sunday afternoon that I had a problem and within ten minutes (no exaggeration) I had a text back that a prescription had been called in to my pharmacy. I've had procedures with other doctors around the Valley and never had an experience more pleasant, nor one which I was happier with the results.

  • review rating 5  I've had four visits with Dr. Jacobsen over the past 2.5 years, the first after the removal of 1/3 of my bottom lip from skin cancer, and the last for a biopsy of possible skin cancer on my nose. Each time, he has treated me with kindness and respect, and also had a level of confidence that made me feel relaxed with whatever he thought best for the particular problem. Thus far, the results have proven him correct. He has quickly become my go-to for any problem or condition that may create a cosmetic "issue". His office and staff make you feel welcomed and comfortable, and he promptly and generously responds to questions or concerns by email. One visit and you'll find these things out yourself.
