Boca Raton Based Plastic Surgeon Introduces Revolutionary New Adjustable Breast Implant to Europe and Asia
Date:6/25/2008

BOCA RATON, Fla., June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Hilton Becker M.D., F.A.C.S., F.R.C.S. of Boca Raton, Florida, who has been working on creating breast implants for the last 20 years, has created his most effective implant yet -- the Spectra Adjustable Gel Implant which is 90 percent silicone and can adjust in both shape and size after it has been implanted.

"The biggest problem with patients is that they are disappointed with the shape and size of the breast after surgery," said Dr. Becker. With this new implant you can, for the first time, "change volume and projection" postoperatively for several months using a silicone gel implant.

Since the implant is not FDA approved in the U.S., but is approved in Europe and Asia, it will be introduced there first through seminars and training.

The tour begins in Dusseldorf, Germany, where Dr. Becker and his wife, Janet Cohen R.N.F.A., will be performing bilateral reconstruction surgery on two women who have had mastectomies, in front of a live audience of plastic surgeons, at the 7th Dusseldorf Breast Cancer Conference.

Then they go to Aarhus, Denmark to the Scandinavian Association of Plastic Surgeons lecture, where Dr. Becker will do a seminar on breast reconstruction and correction of congenital anomalies of the breast. Janet Cohen will do a post-op care seminar for nurses.

Finally, they stop in Bangkok, where Dr. Becker will lecture at the Bangkok Paragon. "Asia is perfect for this procedure," said Dr. Becker, "Asian women often have smaller breasts. This procedure allows us to stretch the skin," a process that, in addition to the cosmetic applications, is essential for reconstruction.

After a mastectomy, he explained, the skin is taut and circulation poor, this implant allows surgeons to place the implant in, stretching the skin gradually postoperatively. The implant is also useful in treating sagging breasts where instead of having a two-stage procedure, this new implant allows the procedure to be performed in one procedure with less risk of complications. Fluid is added through a port when healing has taken place and is removed six months to a year later, when desired size and shape is achieved.

Dr. Becker and his wife operate in their own full-service plastic surgery clinic, located at 670 Glades Road in Boca Raton. For more information, call 561.394.6656 or visit http://www.BeckerMD.com.
