Dr. Sofer uses the innovative Keller Funnel technique when using silicone implants. It's a safe, "no-touch" method of inserting implants, which helps prevent contamination. There are several reasons he prefers this technique for his patients, including:
Your safety and well-being are Dr. Sofer's priorities. He provides as much information as you need to feel comfortable at each stage of the journey.
Dr. Sofer uses implants to create the breast shape and size. You can choose different types with different materials, and each has benefits. Here's a closer look at the most popular breast implants in use today.
Saline implants feature a very safe, sterile saline solution. They're firm and uniform in shape, with a supple feel.
Silicone implants are popular because they feel most like natural breast tissue.
The IDEAL IMPLANT® combines the peace-of-mind of saline with the natural-looking results of silicone.
Gummy bear implants are the latest generation of shaped implants. They are a ground-breaking silicone gel that doesn’t leak if the implant ruptures.
Implants also vary by shape and size. You can get round or teardrop-shaped implants. Teardrop-shaped implants are a more natural-looking shape, while round implants are fuller for enhanced cleavage. Implants use a cubic centimeter or CC measurement system rather than a cup size.
Dr. Sofer offers the VECTRA® 3D imaging system, which simulates the effects of different implant shapes and sizes on your body. You can see what each size, shape, and type look like on your frame to make a better-informed choice.
Dr. Sofer provides honest guidance on what results you can expect from your breast augmentation procedure. In some cases, he may recommend combining surgeries to give you the best overall result. Many women have a breast lift, tummy tuck, or liposuction at the same time as breast augmentation to achieve their desired look.
