With extensive experience in breast surgery procedures like breast lift, breast reduction, and breast augmentation, Dr. Oldham is an ideal surgeon to choose for your breast implant surgery.
In recent years, breast implant surgery has been the topic of much conversation as the FDA re-approved silicone breast implants for use in surgery. In fact, just last month yet another report echoed the results of the decision made years ago. “Silicone implants are safer than ever,” says Bethesda plastic surgeon Dr. Roger J. Oldham. These days, the inside of a silicone implant resembles a gummy bear so that while the texture and shape feels natural and flexible, the actual substance within the implant cannot lost its shape. It is more like a solid than a liquid these days.
And the results of breast augmentation with saline and silicone implants are equally pleasing to patients as about 50% choose saline and 50% choose silicone for their breast augmentation procedure.
