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  This will be a long review but worth the read! I'm beyond impressed with the overall quality, cleanliness, prices, customer service and results. First impressions, their branding of their classy theme provided an elegance that I felt right at home. I felt like a king who was going to get the best treatment! Secondly, very clean... I mean this place was immaculate! You can tell these folks worked hard to build their business and put in the work to upkeep it! As a business owner myself I applaud the way they conduct their business and never loose their family values, that caring, compassionate, family oriented value that most businesses start off with but loose over time. I can tell that money is not their passion. Their customers results are, the smiles and cries one has when they see their results. I was terrified of anesthesia, and when I expressed my concerns about my PTSD the surgeon, anesthesiologist and staff all took the time to sit with me and listen to me then proceed with a break down of how well they were going to take care of me and make sure I have the best experience possible. In which I certainly did! And best part I didn't wake up out of it, scared, panicking or anything like that. I was a little tired of course, but I went live for my fans soon as I got in the car. I felt comfortable the entire time I was waiting and when my nerves were really high I was honest and told them. They put in the extra love to make sure I was ok. When I went back and they gave me whatever magical cocktail, I felt as my procedure was 4 seconds. I didn't wake up during surgery, didn't hear anything nor wake up in pain! Everything they could have possibly done right they absolutely did! I felt safe too. And when I had questions after they were great about responding and following up. The cleanliness was great, and they took all precautions during this time of COVID-19. I knew the day I met Dr. Jacobson during my consultation that he had to be my surgeon! I hope this review helps viewers make that final decision on choosing Dr. Jacobson as their surgeon and if anyone has questions you are more then welcome to ask and I will answer to the best of my abilities😊 Thank you Dr. Jacobson and your staff🙏🏽 my results are incredible! And I'm not even fully healed yet and I can't stop staring at my chest! It's a dream come true and it wouldn't have be possible without you and your staff. God bless!

  • review rating 5  Dr J is absolutely brilliant. His office and staff are out of this world and his demeanor is so friendly and up beat. He makes you feel like you are in the best possible hands... And you are! The Surgeon I met with before I saw Dr J told me I would need a general anesthetic for my surgery and likely a skin graft. I was terrified. Went to Dr J for a second opinion and he was totally nonchalant about what needed to be done. He did it a week later in his office with just some local freezing and it was amazing! No problems at all. I would never see another Dr for surgery. Dr J is truly above the rest! Even his peers give him awards. His office is full of them! Big hugs to him and his staff for turning this in a happy ending from a scary start.

The surgeon I met with before him had me in tears for days. The second I met Dr J I was put at ease and everything went so well. 🙏💕
