Vacation breast implants?

Vacation breast implants?

Before making any significant investment, it is always wise to do research.

However, when it comes to investing in a body transformation, no matter how much research is done, you cannot get an exact replication of the look or feel for the results of a surgery.

Dr. Norman Rowe, a board certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan, New York is looking to change that.

Dr. Rowe is currently working on a breast augmentation procedure that would allow a person to receive breast implants for a period of two to three weeks. The kicker is: these implants would come with no surgery involved. This procedure would allow for a patient to get a realistic sample of the look and feel of breast implants prior to committing and having the full surgery.

Having already invented a procedure that creates 24-hour breast implants, Dr. Rowe thought women might like to have implants that could last for a wedding or vacation.

For the 24-hour implants, Dr. Rowe injects a saline solution into a breast that then is absorbed into the body and allows for the breast to deflate back to normal size. The cost of this procedure is between $2,500 and $3,500 and only takes about 20 minutes to complete.  There is no current cost or procedure time for the longer lasting implants, but Dr. Rowe did say, in a statement, that it would likely depend on demand and cost less than $2,500.

“While the 24-hour breast implant procedure seems harmless, there is always a risk with any surgical procedure such as infection or inadvertent bleeding,” says Dr. Niki Christopoulos, a board certified plastic surgeon with Advocate Medical Group in Oak Lawn and Chicago. “The breasts that last two to three weeks appear to be a mixture of saline solution with an additive that is not yet revealed.

“I would be cautious with any experimental procedure until we have more information. On the surface, injecting a salt solution does not appear harmful; however, it will likely alter and distort the architecture of the breast, and could stretch the skin to some degree.”

The ability to test body transformations at a minimally invasive basis might be here sooner than we realize. After using this idea for breast implants, Dr. Rowe hopes to try to use it for calf and pectoral implants, but for now, it will be used with just breasts.

With this innovation, patients can do their research and try it on for (cup) size.
