Dr. Rothfield Discusses Silicone Breast Implant Re-Approval
Dr. Robert Rothfield recently discussed the four-year anniversary of the FDA’s re-approval of silicone breast implants. After conducting a wide range of studies concerning the safety of silicone breast implants, the FDA lifted the 14-year moratorium, stating that the implants were safe for breast augmentation patients age 22 and older, and breast reconstruction patients of any age. Dr. Rothfield says the implants used today are extremely different from those used in 1992 thanks to continuing technological advancements.
At Weston Plastic Surgery in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Dr. Rothfield says he is interested in the continuing research surrounding breast augmentation in Ft. Lauderdale, and silicone implants specifically because he served as an investigator for both FDA studies concerning their use. With great confidence, Dr. Rothfield says as the fourth anniversary of the re-approval approaches, he looks forward to further support and verification regarding the safe, effective use of silicone breast implants.
