Dr. Sam Speron Discusses The Battle Between Saline, Silicone And New Generation Implants (amazon) (shopzilla)

Park Ridge, IL (PRWEB) August 11, 2013

Breast implant surgeries have escalated 40% since 2010 with nearly 300,000 women opting for breast augmentation. However, when it comes to choosing breast implants, women are often baffled on which implants will give them the more natural look that they desire.

Saline and silicone implants have been used by plastic surgeons since the 1960s. Silicone gel implants were introduced in 1968, however banned temporarily in the US in 1992. The FDA issued a suspension on silicone gel implants due to the concern of the product causing autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. From 1992 to 2006, saline implants were the only choice available to women seeking breast augmentation in the United States. During that time, silicone gel implants still remained the choice of implant for women in South America, Europe and Canada. The FDA finally lifted the suspension on silicone gel implants in 2006 after substantial evidence was presented that silicone gel implants did not cause any diseases. It was confirmed that a womans risk of developing auto-immune diseases was the same whether a patient had silicone gel implants or no implants.

Saline breast implants are filled with sterilized saltwater solution similar to the fluid that makes up most of the human body. The implant is inserted without fluid and will then be filled to a predetermined size. Silicone gel implants come pre-filled with silicone gel inside a silicone outer shell. Saline implants are more susceptible to rippling, and many patients find them to be a less-natural feeling alternative to silicone.

In addition, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved a new-generation MemoryShape Breast Implant manufactured by Mentor, a unit of New Brunswick-based Johnson & Johnson. The silicone gel in the MemoryShape Breast Implant will contain additional cross-linking compared to the silicone gel used in the companys previously approved implants. Cross-linking refers to the bonds that link one silicone chain to another which will result in a silicone gel that is firmer.

“The Mentor MemoryShape gives a more natural tear drop shaped appearance in which the upper portion of the breast drops down to a fuller lower portion of the breast forming a breast that looks and feels natural.” noted Dr. Sam Speron, board certified breast plastic surgeon and consumer advocate.

Mentor will still be required conduct a series of approved studies to evaluate long-term safety and effectiveness conclusions and the risks of rare disease. Mentor will be tracking approximately 2,500 women who will receive the MemoryShape Breast Implants and will be followed until they have completed their 10 year assessments for long-term device performance.

A patient should keep in mind that any type of implant can exhibit rippling of the overlying skin. Both silicone and saline implants can give you a natural look, especially if the implants are positioned under the chest muscles. Silicone gel breast implants on the other hand have a reputation for providing a more natural feel. Both silicone and saline are considered to be exceptional and safe choices. The choices between implants are primarily determined with the patients personal goals and preferences.

My opinion is in favor of either saline or silicone implants. I mainly want to achieve constructing natural-appearing results and I believe you can accomplish these results with either silicone or saline, notes Dr. Sam Speron. I tell my patients that silicone implants are a bit riskier as they have a higher contracture rate and need for MRIs but the choice is entirely theirs. At this time, about 80% of my breast augmentation patients chose silicone. added Dr. Sam Speron

Whatever a patients motives are for considering breast augmentation, it is important that the patient chooses an experienced plastic surgeon who can guide the patient in choosing the best implants as well as keeping the aesthetic goals in mind achieving the finest and utmost natural results.

Dr. Speron is the founder and medical director of Dr. Speron Plastic Surgery. He is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

    New Relumins Skin Whitening Line Offers New and Safer Solutions to Battle Melasma (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Asbury Park, NJ (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

    There is new hope for the millions of women who are affected by melasma. Melasma is a common skin pigmentation condition, sometimes referred to as the Mask of Pregnancy. It affects 45-50 million women worldwide at a very emotional stage of their life. Pregnant women experience increased estrogen, progesterone, and melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) levels during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy which can trigger melasma outbreaks. Melasma is a very common patchy brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration. It typically appears on the upper cheeks, upper lip, forehead, and chin of women between 20-50 years of age.

    Now, Relumins Labs, a New Jersey based skin care company specializing in natural solutions for difficult skin problems has launched a new line of topical and oral products designed to safely lighten melasma and improve the appearance of even severely hyperpigmented areas. The products feature pharmaceutical grade natural ingredients for general skin rejuvenation and brightening such as Glutathione, Kojic acid, Arbutin and Licorice which have been found to be powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents used to battle hyperpigmentation.

    The management of melasma is challenging and sometimes requires a long-term treatment plan. Melasma used to be treated with harsh chemical peels, dangerous Hydroquinone and invasive various lasers or intense pulse light sources. Products or treatments like these can irritate or damage the skin and may cause an increase in melanin production and accelerate melasma symptoms. Recently the search for safer alternatives has given rise to the development of many newer agents, several of them from natural sources. People who are affected by melasma no longer have to seek dangerous treatments which sometimes can amplify the discoloration.

    Before, I found the Relumins website, I was spending thousands of dollars consulting with various dermatologists, and trying painful chemical peels. It was emotionally draining! After I found Relumins, I immediately found successful natural solutions for my condition. I know my melasma will never go away completely, but now I feel confident knowing it is under control, says Monqiue, who has been fighting melasma since her teens.

    When treating Melasma, discontinuation of oral pills especially contraceptives and avoidance of scented cosmetics is highly advised. It is important for anyone to take preventive measures, including avoiding sun exposure and application of extra sunblock to avoid stimulating pigment production which can lead to a melsama breakout.

    For millions of women, these natural alternatives allow them to live their lives without a mask. Although there is no cure, having at home alternatives gives women a sense of normal compared to the helplessness previous treatments have offered.

    Relumins products can be found at various fine retail outlets, including Amazon, Ebay, and Flawless Beauty and Skin by Sweet Suzzy.
