Undergoing plastic surgery to improve our body or facial aesthetics always gives us a bit of insecurity because there are many myths that spread from mouth to mouth and create false concepts. For this, the important thing is that you ask all the questions you have to the doctor with whom you decide to operate.

We talked about it with the renowned plastic surgeon in the city of Miami, Dr. Alexander Zuriarrain (Dr. Z), who in addition to having excellent testimonials from patients pleased with his work, has received countless recognitions from different associations that bring together the best plastic surgeons in the United States.

I mention Dr.Z's qualifications because it is very important that we know who we put our health into. First of all we must know that we are in the hands of a certified doctor. Dr Z. is recognized by the Board Certified Surgeon, the Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery, and the Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. EYE, this is very important.


Dr. Z. clarified the most common doubts. But if you have any other questions that you would like to ask him, you can access and he will gladly answer you.

Are silicone implants prohibited?

Silicone implants are not prohibited in any way. They are a fantastic way to improve the appearance of women. They are the best method of filling the void that occurs in the breast with age, weight loss, and pregnancy.

Are silicone implants dangerous because if they break they can cause death?

They are extremely safe. The new generation of silicone implants has been extensively studied and does not pose any risk to the patient. They have been used for many years without complications and can never cause death in the patient. In the event the implant breaks, it is simply removed and replaced. It is a very easy and fairly quick procedure with very little discomfort for the patient.

Should any implant be removed every 10 years?

No implant is designed to last the entire life of the patient. Nothing in life is eternal and breast implants should always be considered for removal starting 10 years after surgery. Surgery to do the implant change can be done under local anesthesia and is very easy, fast and safe.

Even if they are saline, if the implant material is silicone, is it dangerous?

Saline and silicone implants are very safe and are not related to any autoimmune disease. Neither type of prosthesis is dangerous.

Are the best implants made of porous, not smooth material?

The best implants that exist today are smooth and silicone implants. The smooth implant tends to create less encapsulation. Also smooth implants do not stick in any position and maintain a much more natural appearance for the patient.

Should implants be placed behind the muscle to make them more natural?

Silicone implants can be placed in front of or behind the pectoral muscle. The place where the implant is placed has to do with the anatomical characteristics of each patient. Each woman is unique and deserves to discuss her plastic surgeon in detail in terms of obtaining the best aesthetic result. For women who do not have enough natural breast to cover the implant they look more natural by placing the implant behind the muscle. For those with a more natural breast and a thicker layer to cover the implant, it can be placed over the muscle. Either position can give a natural result. Much depends on the size of the implant.

For glutes are saline better?

For the buttocks, the use of saline implants is not recommended. If at all silicone implants can be used. In my experience , the best results are in patients who have liposuction with transfer of their fat to the buttock. The transfer of fat to the buttock results in a much more natural appearance.

How many types of FDA approved implants are available on the market?

There are several types of implants on the market approved by the FDA for use in cosmetic surgery. The implants used for cosmetic surgery are made of silicone and saline. The American companies that offer the implants are Mentor, Allergan and Sientra.

Which one do you personally recommend?

I recommend silicone implants that are round and smooth. The most important thing is to take specific measurements of the anatomy of the breast in order to choose the implant that corresponds to the patient. Implants should be chosen after consulting with the patient and obtaining the dimensions of her breast, so surgery can be performed to give the patient a more accurate result.

What should we consider to decide which one to use?

We must consider the height of the patient, the width of her breast, the distance from the neck to the nipple and the distance from the nipple to the crease of the bust. Using these measures and recognizing that each woman has her own aesthetic, you can choose the best implant for her.
