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.
