Silicone Breast Implants


Silicone gel breast implants are silicone-based gel that are quite thick and cohesive. This is contained by a silicone capsule or sheet that contains the gel within it. Silicone is a ubiquitous substance that is found in glass and found in sand on the beach. Silicone is very nonreactive. Silicone is utilized in all sorts of medical devices including intravenous catheters brain shots heart valves knee joints and a host of other devices. Silicone is used safely every day and hospitals for 100s of reasons and as a substance is found to be safe in all these devices. Silicone has not been under any scrutiny for any other medical device however it’s been under great scrutiny since the early 90s regarding breast implants. Silicone gel breast implants are the most studied medical device in the history of mankind. Millions and millions of women have been studied that have had breast implants. These have been found and have been approved by the Federal drug administration United States to be safe when monitored and the see her doctor regularly. The silicone itself is inert and does not cause disease. At one time it was thought that the silicone gel might lead to various immunologic diseases and various rheumatologic diseases and various inflammatory diseases all of which have not been associated after almost 20 years of study. There is a very rare lymphoma that has some very rare association with textured breast implants. This is called a breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma. The numbers of patients that have this lymphoma are very difficult to account for and the long-term studies have not been completed in its study, but it is extremely rare. It is important to be aware of this, but this is not a concern enough from the Federal drug administration to remove the implants from the widespread use for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes. Here are some findings regarding silicone breast implants from the Federal drug administration.

These tumors which are extremely reserved have been more associated with the textured implant then with a smooth implant. Dr. Jacobsen uses the smooth implant.

The silicone gel breast implants have been found over the last 20 years and the 100s of thousands of ladies that have been followed & typically reviewed over the last 20 years to be safe. The most important thing is to be examined by your family doctor your plastic surgeon or your gynecologist once a year to make sure your implants are safe soft and in good condition. If they are not this should be removed or replaced

The implants filled with silicone gel are very sophisticated in their feel. Therefore, they have an excellent feel for the patient. When they are implanted into the patient’s they give the patient a much more natural feel to the breast tissue and when you are hugging somebody, or somebody is touching you it feels much more like a breast than other implants like saline implants. This is the disadvantage of the silicone gel implants.

It should be kept in mind however that even the saline implants also have silicone as the capsule or the container for the implant. So, both the silicone gel implant and the saline implant both have silicone in them significantly.

There is very little silicone material that leaks or is diffusing away from the breast implant. Some studies suggest that there is less silicone coming from the breast implant then there are from daily consumer products containing silicone which are very common.

Almost all patient’s that have breast reconstruction receive silicone gel breast implants.

The Institute of medicine has reviewed the numerous studies of all the patient’s that have been involved in the breast implant study over multiple contents revealed that there is no conclusive evidence of silicone breast implants being responsible for any major diseases of the whole body or systemic diseases for women exposed to silicone daily in their lives.

  • review rating 5  Dr. Jacobsen surgically treated my husband for a serious and complicated wound infection. It took a lot of determination on Dr. J's part to get him through this ordeal. We would email photos on a regular basis and Dr. J would always personally reply and see him asap if needed. We would definitely recommend him to anyone.

  • review rating 5  My beloved Bernie received such wonderful care from Dr Jacobsen. He was seen the very next week for a growth he had on his ankle. Both Dr. Jacobsen and his staff were very professional, warm, kind and compassionate. What impressed me the most about Dr J was his ability to be fully present and listen deliberately to our concerns and then communicated in a language we could understand about what Bernie needed. Bernie was in surgery the next day. Dr J listened to Bernie’s concerns and honored his choices, even though they were different than what Dr J recommended. Although the cancer spread through his body in the next several months and Bernie died, Dr J and his staff were always compassionate and understanding. They took the time to listen and they were especially kind to me, Bernie's beloved wife.

  • review rating 5  Dr Jacobson is the most competent and engaging surgeon I've known. A paralyzed Veteran for 25 years, I developed pressure wounds the VA were incapable to treat, finally the VA gave up completely and drugged me and put me on palliative care,telling nurses I'd be dead by 2015. Dr Jacobson changed all that and gave me new life. He is simply the best. Cosmetically or otherwise,one cannot do better than Dr William Jacobson .

  • review rating 5  Dr. Jacobsen or Dr. J as he prefers to be called is the most awesome character to know; he and his professional family!! Kind, soft spoken, informative, well educated and his surgical skills like no other! He brought me hope when I felt none left, at 48 I had fallen after having open heart surgery, losing my sternum due to sepsis and for the past 2 years dealing with Dr.s with attitudes and complex issues and NO bedside manners. I needed a medically necessary breast reduction surgery my infectious disease Dr. overheard my last plastic surgeon at the time literally screaming at me and walked out so she referred me to Dr. J and I am ever so grateful!! With my surgery completed and the weight removed I have less pain and can move a bit more freely allowing me so much more freedom in my life again!! THANK YOU DR. J, Kimberly, Charley and Oliver..xoxo forever in my heart you'll be..there will never be enough words to show my gratitude to you all for you have done for me!! I look forward to our visit in 2 months..So Oliver call me...

  • review rating 5  Thanks Dr. Jacobsen and staff. Warming atmosphere friendly informative and caring doctor. This was my first visit and doctor took the time to explain and answer my questions. Nothing was rushed. Staff greeted me nicely with smiles and patience. It took me courage to show up since I’m nervous about having a surgery to begin with. They helped me feel welcomed and relaxed. Thank goodness their office portal was working so no double work to provide my medical information and resigning papers.

  • review rating 5  I had many complications with my body healing from surgery, and Dr. Jacobsen demonstrated patience, resourcefulness, vigilance, and compassion. Here are a few specific things he did to help with my healing: he had me email him twice a day with pictures of my incisions so he could monitor, provide feedback and directions, and adjust his care for me as needed; he was always quick to respond to my emails and questions; he met me in his office on a Saturday during a holiday weekend to care for me during an important time in my healing; he provided regular and specific directions to my husband as he cared for me at home with the complications. His compassion and reassuring nature were valued as I put my confidence in his expertise to help me through this difficult time. I appreciate him greatly and give him the highest rating with no hesitations. His staff were also extremely helpful. Don't be bothered about calling the office and leaving a message (when someone doesn't answer) or emailing the office; they are very quick to respond with a phone call or email and this is part of their daily business routines, which allows them to care for their patients in person AND to those reaching out to them for miscellaneous reasons. This was different at first for me but I quickly adjusted, understanding their reasons and seeing their quick responses to me. The staff also worked seamlessly with my insurance company, a medical equipment company who came to my home three times a week to monitor and help with the healing process, and with the needed paperwork for my employment. I was always treated with respect, sensitivity, compassion, and excellent care.
