Breast Procedures & Breast Implant Illness (BII)

In the realm of breast implant health, medical experts are actively discussing Breast Implant Illness (BII). The FDA's investigation has revealed a significant correlation between textured implants and a concerning disorder called Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). This correlation leaves no doubt about the potential health implications.

While the medical community seeks to understand breast implant-related illnesses and the FDA conducts ongoing investigations, an increasing number of women worldwide report experiencing perplexing inflammatory symptoms they attribute to their implants.

The exact prevalence of breast implant illness remains uncertain. However, with over 400,000 women choosing breast implants annually in the United States alone and many sharing their personal stories, this is an issue that demands serious attention.

Consequently, Dr. Barr decided to stop performing breast augmentations in 2019. 

Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) — Removal of the Implants and the Capsule

A total capsulectomy involves the complete removal of the capsule that forms around breast implants and the implants.

Dr. Barr begins the procedure with an incision in the breast area, through which he carefully removes the entire capsule surrounding the implant. This meticulous approach ensures the full excision of all traces of the capsule, including any scar tissue or calcifications, and the implant itself.

We often recommend total capsulectomy for various reasons, including cases of breast implant illness (BII) or when a patient wishes to have their breast implants removed completely. Dr. Barr's expertise and attention to detail allow him to perform this procedure with precision, ensuring the best possible outcome for his patients.

If you are considering a total capsulectomy or have concerns related to breast implants, schedule a consultation with Dr. Fredric M. Barr at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery. During the consultation, he will evaluate your specific situation, discuss your goals and options, and provide personalized recommendations to address your needs effectively.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy) — Reshaping the Breasts

A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to lift and reshape the breasts to correct sagging or drooping caused by various factors, including pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and aging.

In cases that require a total capsulectomy, Dr. Barr removes the breast implants and the surrounding scar tissue (capsules) completely. Patients who have experienced complications or symptoms related to breast implants, such as those associated with Breast Implant Illness (BII)  can benefit from this thorough removal.

By combining his expertise in breast lift and total capsulectomy procedures, Dr. Barr provides patients with comprehensive care and optimal results. To determine the most suitable treatment plan for you, schedule a consultation with our patient counselor to discuss your individual circumstances, concerns, and goals.

Breast Reduction (Mammoplasty) — For a More Balanced, Comfortable, and Proportionate Appearance

Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery offers breast reduction procedures to help patients achieve their desired breast size and shape. Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess breast tissue and reshaping the breasts to achieve a more proportionate and balanced appearance.

During the breast reduction procedure, Dr. Barr makes incisions to access the breast tissue and remove the excess volume. The specific technique used may vary depending on the patient's individual needs and goals. Dr. Barr takes great care to strategically place incisions to minimize visible scarring.

After removing the excess tissue, he reshapes the remaining breast tissue and repositions the nipples and areolas to a more aesthetically pleasing position before closing the incisions with sutures.

Breast reduction surgery offers numerous benefits, including: 

  • Relief from physical discomfort caused by large breasts improved posture
  • Enhanced body proportions 
  • Increased self-confidence

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia) — Treating Enlargement of Breast Tissue in Men

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the enlargement of male breast tissue and can be caused by hormonal imbalances, genetics, obesity, or certain medications.

During the male breast reduction procedure, Dr. Barr makes small incisions around the areola or in the underarm area. Through these incisions, he removes excess glandular tissue and fat to reduce the size and improve the contour of the breasts. In some cases, he may also use liposuction to remove additional fatty tissue.

Dr. Barr considers each patient's specific needs and goals to create a customized treatment plan to achieve a more masculine, proportionate, and natural-looking chest.

During this meeting, Dr. Barr will determine how much fat he needs to remove with liposuction, based on your unique needs and goals.

Breast Procedures — Promoting Health and Positive Self-Image

At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we provide patients many options concerning breast procedures to help them achieve their desired health and aesthetic goals. Amid growing concerns and reports of debilitating symptoms from some of his patients about their breast implants, Dr. Barr listened and altered his practice. He stopped performing breast augmentation surgery in 2019.

Patients who choose to have their breast implants removed can consult with Dr. Barr and Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery about a total capsulectomy, which removes scar tissue around the implant and the implant itself. Unlike an en bloc capsulectomy, a total capsulectomy focuses solely on removing the scar capsule and implant, without removing any additional tissue. This procedure may be a suitable solution for women who believe their breast implants are causing symptoms. You can trust that Dr. Barr will fully remove the capsule during this procedure.

A breast lift, also called mastopexy, is a surgical solution to elevate and reshape the breasts, effectively addressing sagging or drooping caused by a range of factors such as pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process.

Our breast reduction procedures, also known as reduction mammoplasty, can help you remove excess breast tissue and reshape your breasts for a more balanced and proportionate look. Trust our skilled West Palm Beach plastic surgeons to give you the results you desire.

Gynecomastia, a condition where male breast tissue becomes enlarged, can be caused by various factors such as hormone imbalances, genetics, obesity, or certain medications. Dr. Barr performs a male breast reduction procedure to address this issue. With small incisions made around the areola or underarm area, he removes excess glandular tissue and fat, resulting in reduced breast size and improved contour. In certain cases, liposuction may also be used to remove additional fatty tissue.

Tummy Tuck Procedures — Customized Treatment for a Tighter Abdominal Appearance

During a tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Barr removes excess skin and fat from the abdominal area, and tightens the underlying muscles to create a firmer and more defined abdomen. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced:

  • Significant weight loss
  • Pregnancy
  • Aging

These conditions may have led to loose abdominal skin and weakened abdominal muscles.

Dr. Barr understands that each patient is unique. He takes the time to assess your individual needs and goals to develop a tailored treatment plan. By utilizing advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Barr strives to achieve naturally beautiful results that restore confidence and improve his patients’ quality of life.

Liposuction Procedures — Aesthetically Sculpting for a Healthy Look

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, or buttocks. This procedure can help sculpt and reshape these areas, resulting in a more contoured and proportionate figure.

With his expertise and extensive experience, Dr. Barr utilizes advanced liposuction techniques to sculpt and contour the body, providing patients with more proportionate and aesthetically pleasing results. The procedure involves making small incisions through which a thin cannula is inserted to suction out the unwanted fat cells.

During a consultation, Dr. Barr takes the time to understand each patient's unique goals and concerns, ensuring a personalized treatment plan. His commitment to listening, understanding, and compassion allows him to exceed patients' expectations and deliver natural-looking outcomes.

Arm Lift Procedures — Reinforcing Your Confidence With a Rejuvenated Appearance

An arm lift is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from the upper arms, resulting in a more contoured and youthful appearance. This procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals who have experienced significant weight loss or have noticed sagging skin and tissue in their arms due to aging.

During an arm lift, Dr. Barr makes incisions along the inside or back of the upper arm, strategically placing them to minimize visible scarring. He then removes the excess skin and fat, tightens the underlying tissues, and sutures the incisions for optimal results. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia, and the recovery period typically involves minimal discomfort and downtime.

Dr. Barr's expertise and attention to detail ensure that each arm lift procedure is tailored to the patient's specific needs and desired outcome. By utilizing advanced surgical techniques, he aims to achieve natural-looking results and help patients regain confidence in the appearance of their arms.

If you are considering an arm lift, schedule a consultation with Dr. Fredric Barr at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery. During the consultation, he will thoroughly assess your individual concerns and goals, providing personalized recommendations to help you attain the sculpted arms you desire.

Our Faqs

Q

If I am seeking to undergo a combination of procedures, will they be done together or consecutively? What is the timeline for multiple procedures?

A

The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.

However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.


Q

Will it be obvious that I “got work done” after my procedure?

A

While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

Dr. Frederic M. Barr is a board-certified Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience performing Plastic Surgery in South Florida. We enhance and refine your appearance according to your goals. Review our Gallery of Before & After Photos to see some examples of our work.


Q

What does Breast Explant Surgery entail, and will my breasts be “back to normal” after the surgery?

A

For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.

Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.


Q

Are injectables safe, and are some safer than others? What are the dangers, and how can I avoid them?

A

We only utilize injectables and safe procedures for our patients, though any procedure involves some degree of risk. Proper performance and the surgeon's skills and experience performing the procedure are vital factors affecting patients’ safety. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our surgeon is Board-Certified, with over 30 years of experience. We enforce a high standard to maintain safety for our clients and competitors. See our Injectable Procedures Overview for a list of injectable procedures and more information on each.


Q

What options do you have for Reconstructive Surgery?

A

We perform Breast Reconstruction After Cancer, Hand Reconstruction, Nose Cancer Reconstruction, and Cleft Lip Repair.


Q

Can I pursue financing options if my health insurance does not cover cosmetic or reconstructive surgeries?

A

We can address your specific procedure questions and a range of financing plans that include interest-free and long-term options during a consultation. Ask us about CareCredit, a healthcare credit card designed specifically for cosmetic or reconstructive procedures not covered by health insurance. The Alphaeon credit card is another option that offers flexible monthly payment options, and Prosper Healthcare Lending provides another means to pay. See our Plastic Surgery Financing Options page for more information.
