    The Past, Present, and Future of Breast Implants

    The Past, Present, and Future of Breast Implants

    When it comes to breast implants, plastic surgeon Dr. John Smoot has seen it all. In practice since 1988, he studied with Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Cronin, the inventor of the breast implant.

    The earliest silicone implants had problems with rupture, and were connected to autoimmune diseases. When banned in 1992, surgeons specializing in breast surgery, including Dr. Smoot, pivoted to saline implants.

    After hundreds of clinical trials and research studies, silicone implants returned to the market in 2006. Today’s silicone implants are much different, especially when it comes to safety and removing them without complications.

    Hear Dr. Smoot’s perspective on what’s happening in the field of breast augmentation today, why the increasing popularity in implant removal and his opinions on the effectiveness of using fat to add volume instead of implants.
