Each breast implant type has its own safety profile with unique physical characteristics that affect the chance of rupture or other complications. Studies show that the Sientra® Silimed® line of cohesive gel breast implants, now offered by Dr. Chaffoo, may have a lowered risk of complications. Ask Dr. Chaffoo about these newly available implants.

You can go a long way toward preventing complications by following Dr. Chaffoo's recovery instructions, which may include:
Enjoy the opportunity to rest, sleep, and relax as much as you need.
