Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Implants?
During a consultation, Dr. Yee will discuss your concerns and cosmetic goals with you, and conduct a thorough examination. It is important that you have realistic expectations of what the surgery can do for you, as well as present your health history and factors that could affect your care, like any current medications you are taking.
Breast implants may be recommended to:
- Increase the size of small or disproportionate breasts
- Add volume to breasts that have become flat due to weight loss or breastfeeding
- Correct or improve symmetry between breasts
Dr. Yee is committed to patient safety and will analyze a number of criteria to determine whether breast enhancement surgery is right for you. Although she recognizes the benefits breast implants can offer certain teen patients, she will never compromise the health or safety of a younger patient.
Personalized Care for Optimal Results
At the practice of Dr. Yee, we are committed to helping our patients look and feel their very best. Dr. Yee combines advanced surgical techniques with an artistic eye to detail for subtle, natural-looking results.
Depending on your unique aesthetic goals, body type, and concerns, Dr. Yee will work closely with you to personalize your surgery for the best possible results. Dr. Yee offers both silicone and saline implants, and will help you choose which type is right for you. Saline implants are typically cheaper, and are filled with a safe, saline solution after they are inserted. Silicone implants are pre-filled with a gel, and although they are typically more expensive, many patients prefer silicone implants for their natural look and feel. In addition to choosing between saline and silicone implants, a range of implant sizes and shapes are available, each offering unique benefits to the patient.
Breast Implant Exchange & Removal
Although they are designed to be long-lasting, breast implants do not last forever. A patient may choose to have their implants removed for a range of reasons. Regardless of your unique situation, Dr. Yee offers breast implant exchange, as well as removal, and can provide treatment and counseling for related issues, like capsular contracture.

Breast implants can easily be combined with a number of additional cosmetic procedures, like a breast lift or a comprehensive mommy makeover. Schedule a consultation at our practice today to learn more about improving your figure and boosting your confidence with breast implants.
A Word About ALCL as it Relates to Breast Implants
Recently, the FDA has found that women, who have opted to have breast implants, have a very low but increasing risk of developing a very rare form of lymphoma cancer.
Identified in 1985, Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL) was found to be more common in young people, specifically males. As science has progressed we have begun to learn more about the associated risks.
In the beginning of February of 2017 the FDA has received 359 reports of breast implant associated ALCL. Of the 231 reports that contained information on the implant surface, 87% of these cases are reported to be surfaced implants. It is important to remember that when considering the total amount of breast augmentations (300,000 annually or 10 million overall) the instances of ALCL is extremely rare and ultimately, having breast implants, is still considered to be safe by the FDA. However, because of it’s seriousness you should speak with your surgeon and understand the risk factors.
