I agree with Dr. Chris. It's great if the patients can provide us with information on their previous breast implant surgery. Most breast implant companies would have provided a card which has the information or you can always check in with your surgeon for the details. This will hel...

Thank you for your question. If the capsule is soft and not calcified it can be left alone. Having said that, I do find that there is a slightly higher risk of seroma if the capsule is left intact compared to removing it. Some patients prefer to remove all of the capsule. This...

May I commend you on a good first step forward to consider and understand the risks associated with your surgery. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved and patients have to be counselled about these potential complications. The most common complications fr...

This Singapore Plastic Surgeon Discusses The Link Of Textured Breast Implants To Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

This Singapore Plastic Surgeon Discusses The Link Of Textured Breast Implants To Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL)

Breast implants are prosthetics that are used to alter the shape, size, and contour of a person’s breasts. They are commonly used for breast reconstruction in women after breast cancer surgery or for correction of deformities from birth. They are also used to augment the natural appearance of breasts in women seeking cosmetic enhancements. Getting breast implants is increasingly common and patients have been seeing positive results. However, recent developments have led to a correlation between breast implants and BIA-ALCL (Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma).

There has been an increased incidence of BIA-ALCL reported mainly in America, Europe, and Australia over the years and Singapore has seen it’s first case recently. What is this condition and how does it affect patients who have been diagnosed or who are at risk of being exposed? Here are facts and concerns surrounding BIA-ALCL and the relation to other potential issues regarding breast implants.

Fat Transfer Versus Breast Implants: A Singaporean Plastic Surgeon Discusses

Dr Colin Tham is a plastic surgeon who answered a question from a DoctorxDentist reader about fat transfer versus breast implants. Here are some key takeaways.

The minimal invasive injection of breast fillers was an attractive alternative to permanent breast implants for many women. This is performed under local anaesthesia, and patients do not require hospitalisation or have long recovery times. However, there have been many breast filler...

Many patients do travel overseas for surgery. In general, I wouldn't advise it if there are capable surgeons in your own country. I do understand that Singapore is quite expensive for many cosmetic procedures. Part of the reason it is expensive is for patients' safety. Invasiv...
