Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Roger J. Oldham is one of the Washington D.C. area’s most experienced cosmetic surgeons. Offering patients a wide variety of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Oldham has maintained a booming practice for more than 25 years. Among his most popular breast surgery procedures is breast implant surgery. Breast implant surgery (breast augmentation) is a procedure by which implants (of a variety of shapes and sizes) are used to supplement the natural size of the breasts.
Dr. Oldham performs breast implant surgery through an incision either under the breast or around the areola, through which the implant can be placed. Depending upon the size and shape of the implant, your breasts after surgery can be any size, and can feature a variety of shapes (round, teardrop, etc.). These choices are important to consider, as is your decision between saline and silicone implants. Recently re-approved by the FDA, silicone implants are safer than ever. The latest generation of implant production has implemented a substance that is similar to a soft gum drop so that even when ruptured, the implant maintains its shape. These implants are safer than ever.
When you meet with Dr. Oldham, you can discuss the choice of implants and with your choice, Dr. Oldham can show you pictures of patients before and after breast augmentation surgery with silicone or saline implants. Feel free to inquire about breast augmentation surgery when you call our Bethesda plastic surgery office.
