Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon Offers Newly-Approved Silicone Breast Implants

Share Article

Dr. Stewart Wang applauds the FDA's decision to open the market to safe silicone breast implants and is pleased to offer this option to women in the greater Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley areas.

With additional implant choices now available to them, it's a great time for women who are considering breast augmentation to seek consultation from a highly-trained and experienced plastic surgeon, according to Dr. Stewart Wang, a prominent L.A. area physician and diplomat of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Given the recent Food and Drug Administration approval of silicone implants, women who are undecided about proceeding with breast enhancement or who are dissatisfied with a past procedure may very well find this is the right time to move forward.

Saline implants have been the only option for most women in the United States for over ten years. With the FDA's decision to re-approve silicone breast implants in this country, Dr. Wang believes many of his patients will select silicone implants over saline.

"Silicone implants, particularly those constructed with the newer, semi-solid gel material, tend to feel more natural than saline devices," said Dr. Wang. Silicone implants also look more like natural breasts and generate none of the complaints of rippling or balloon-like appearance sometimes associated with saline implants. "Many women considering breast enhancement will be as excited as I am about the new silicone options," Dr. Wang said.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon who strives to keep up with the very latest developments in medicine, Dr. Wang was pleased to hear of this month's FDA decision. "I followed the FDA's research for more than a decade," he said, "and I applaud their decision to re-approve silicone devices. There was no credible evidence that silicone implants cause serious medical conditions."

Now that both saline and silicone implants are available, Dr. Wang encourages interested patients to seek the input of a skilled and experienced surgeon who can present all options and who will listen carefully. "Each patient has dreams and concerns to balance," he noted, "and no one solution can be right for everyone."

Dr. Stewart Wang, a USC-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon and diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, combines today's innovative treatments with time-tested, classic techniques to achieve the most successful results possible. Dr. Wang is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) as well as the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). From his main office in Alhambra, Southern California, he offers cosmetic surgery and medical spa services for Pasadena and East Los Angeles.
