The world of plastic surgery has been transformed in recent years. While safety issues used to be a major concern, today’s state-of-the-art procedures are safer and simpler than ever before.
If you’ve been reading about breast augmentation surgery, you have probably read about possible complications. While these complications are still possible, they are rare. Dr Turner is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards and creating the safest possible environment.
One of the biggest concerns related to breast implants is Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. While this is a serious condition, it is preventable. Here’s what you need to know about safety and breast implants.
When we talk about safety concerns, breast implant associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (brALCL) is a hot topic. This rare tumour has been studied in recent years and has been linked to breast implants. While ALCL is a major concern, it is very rare and the risk of developing ALCL can be reduced in the operating room.
To minimise the risk of this tumour occurring in our breast augmentation patients, Dr Turner takes every possible precaution. At the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery, the 14-Point Plan and Keller Funnel are used in every breast augmentation to ensure the safest procedures each and every time.
The 14-Point Plan and Keller Funnel eliminate bacterial contamination. By ensuring that every safety precaution is taken, the odds of being affected by Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma are incredibly low.
The 14-point plan was developed in 2013. It was created by the world’s leading plastic surgeons as a way to eliminate bacteria at every point. This plan established a series of steps that have been proven to reduce complications during breast implant surgery.
The highly successful 14-point plan was immediately adopted across the world because of its remarkable results. By following these 14 steps to target bacteria, the risk of breast implant complications has been slashed. For you this means predictable, long-lasting results and fewer complications.
Every breast augmentation at the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery is done with a Keller Funnel. This no-touch technique means that breast implants can be inserted in the safest and least invasive manner possible. This method is able to eliminate unnecessary bacterial contamination risks by ensuring that the breast implants doesn’t touch your breast skin or Dr Turner’s gloves. Beyond reducing the risk of Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma, the Keller Funnel also allow for smaller incision scar, few complications, and a faster recovery time.
Dr Turned is dedicated to using the 14 Point Plan with a Keller Funnel for all breast augmentation surgeries to ensure a safe produce with the fewest risks possible. At the Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery, we now use the latest nano-textured breast implants (Motiva) as well to give the safest procedure possible.
