Dr. Lloyd Landsman offers a number of breast enhancement procedures at his Suffolk County, Long Island practice, including:
Patients may choose from a complete line of silicone gel implants, as well as saline-filled implants. Both types of implants are available in three different dimensions: moderate profile PLUS, high profile, and moderate profile. Moderate profile PLUS, the most commonly used of the three, offers the ideal balance between projection and width, while high profile implants are used commonly in reoperative procedures, as well as in particular anatomical circumstances.

In November of 2006, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved silicone gel implants for use in all cosmetic breast procedures. Since then, acceptance of the use of silicone gel implants has steadily increased among both medical professionals and patients.
These implants were originally taken off the market, and only in the United States, to give the FDA a chance to investigate allegations that silicone gel implants could potentially cause auto-immune diseases. The FDA and the plastic surgery community spearheaded extensive investigations and clinical trials – many in which Dr. Landsman participated – eventually finding these allegations to be untrue. The use of silicone gel implants was concluded to be safe, and they returned to the market in 2006.
Silicone gel implants offer a number of advantages over saline implants, including:
Over 70 percent of primary breast augmentation patients coming to Dr. Landsman's Suffolk County, Long Island practice are opting for the silicone gel implants, while nearly 100 percent of patients who have already undergone breast enhancement with saline implants choose to change over to silicone gel. To further discuss the benefits and risks of silicone gel implants, contact Dr. Landsman today and schedule a private consultation.

A breast lift, also called mastopexy, can correct sagging breasts caused by weight gain followed by weight loss, pregnancy, or nursing. Women who feel self-conscious about drooping breasts, called breast ptosis, may desire firmer, shapelier breasts. A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola, the colored skin surrounding the nipple.
The breast lift procedure, which utilizes minimal incision techniques, is often combined with breast implants to obtain dramatic improvement in breast aesthetics; patients choosing to combine the breast lift procedure with implants can choose either silicone gel or saline implants. For women with overly large breasts that droop or sag, a breast lift can also be performed in conjunction with breast reduction via liposuction or direct incision. If you would like to discuss breast lift options, please contact our office in Suffolk County, Long Island, today.
