Your Breast Implant and Plastic Surgery Options
More men and women across the country are choosing to receive plastic surgery than ever before. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) found that, “$16.7 billion was spent on cosmetic procedures in the U.S.” as part of their 2017 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report. The latest advancements in technology have made new products, procedures, and techniques available to plastic surgeons, and Dr. Steven Ringler is committed to offering the best plastic surgery options in the industry.
Meet Dr. Steven Ringler
If you are considering plastic surgery, is it vital to find a plastic surgeon that has the skills and expertise needed to help you reach your goals. Dr. Ringler is a board-certified plastic surgeon and IDEAL IMPLANT® Premier Surgeon. He states:
“My practice is totally dedicated to cosmetic or aesthetic surgery. I have been in plastic surgery for over 33 years. My practice is divided about a third facial cosmetic surgery, a third breast and cosmetic, and body contouring the remaining third. I see patients from our local community, but I also see patients from out of town. We have a beautiful facility, very private, with a great team of employees and staff to help patients make decisions about what’s best for them. My cosmetic practice patients are happy. They’re treated with respect. We’re good at listening and learning what patient’s goals and expectations are, and trying to meet those with procedures and treatments we have to offer.”
Plastic Surgery Options of Today
Plastic surgery options have changed over the years, including surgical and non-surgical procedures. A press release on the ASPS website, plasticsurgery.org, reads:
“According to the annual plastic surgery procedural statistics, there were 17.5 million surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States in 2017, a 2 percent increase over 2016. The statistics also reveal Americans are turning to new and innovative ways to shape their bodies, as minimally invasive cosmetic procedures have increased nearly 200% since 2000. Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures grew at a slightly higher rate than surgical procedures in 2017. While three of the top-five surgical procedures focused on the body, the top minimally invasive procedures focused on the face.”
With so many types of procedures available, Dr. Ringler makes patient education a top priority. He understands the unique nature of each body, so he takes the time to create customized treatment plans for all his patients. This allows him to better meet individual needs as well as set realistic expectations. He says:
“I think it’s really important, as a physician, to educate the patient. That’s part of the informed consent process. I think patients need to understand what their options are. It’s their body. They need to make the decision.”
Breast Augmentation Recovery with Dr. Ringler
No matter the procedure, Dr. Ringler is dedicated to helping his patients feel more confident, and gain the look they desire. Plasticsurgery.org further reported, “breast augmentation continues to be the top cosmetic surgical procedure and has been since 2006.” Women wanting breast augmentation now have three breast implant options – saline, silicone gel, and the new IDEAL IMPLANT. When choosing Dr. Ringler as your plastic surgeon, he will help you through every step of the surgery process, including breast augmentation recovery.
While many women are familiar with silicone gel or saline implants, the IDEAL IMPLANT is a choice that provides the best of both worlds. As a “structured implant”, it is comprised of a series of shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. This advanced internal structure creates the natural feel and realistic look women associate with silicone gel, yet gives the peace of mind and security that comes with saline.
There is a lot to consider before undergoing breast surgery. While a picture from a magazine may portray what you hope to look with breast implants, no two people can look alike. Everyone is different. Results vary from one person to the next. No plastic surgeon can guarantee the exact same look as seen in a picture of a friend, family member, or model following their breast augmentation recovery.
But what Dr. Ringler can guarantee is a careful evaluation of your body type. He focuses on understanding the outcome you want to achieve, then works hard to get you there. He uses a variety of tools to help his patients envision what they will look like with breast implants, including a combination of computer imaging, external sizers, and clinical photographs. To also create clear expectations, he assesses a woman’s breast shape, amount of breast tissue, body size, frame, and chest dimensions.
