Hesitation | Dr. Robert Rehnke

If you're hesitant to get breast implants because of worries about the safety of silicone-gel implants, other solutions are available. Talk to Dr. Robert Rehnke about your options.

You went to Bungalowfest earlier this month with friends. As always happens with your friends, the conversation was far reaching and covered topics from the bungalows themselves to breast enlargement. Specifically, one of your friends mentioned that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is proposing new warnings and disclosures about the possible risks and side effects of silicone-gel breast implants.

According to a story from Today about the FDA proposal, the Food and Drug Administration is suggesting manufacturers add a warning label highlighted by a box to the information given to women before they undergo the procedure. The agency is also proposing that patients complete a check list of the risks to make sure they understand all possible side effects of the procedure.

You hadn't heard the news but it made you stop and think. You've been thinking about getting implants and had just about decided to go ahead and find a plastic surgeon to perform the breast enlargement surgery. But now you're hesitating even more.

Hesitation and caution are good when it comes to any optional surgery. So is knowledge. And one piece of that is discovering that you don't have to use silicone-gel implants to get perkier, or larger breasts. Surgeons can take fat tissue from another part of your body to use instead. 

Of course, that also has its pros and cons. But it's an option you should explore.

The best way to discover what's best for you is to ask an expert like Dr. Robert Rehnke.
