Dr. Kris Reddy FACS: Expert of Breast Implants in West Palm Beach
Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, board certified plastic surgeon and West Palm Beach Breast Implants expert, is a member of the prestigious American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Reddy also has the rare double honor of being a Fellow of American and International College of Surgeons, the only board certified plastic surgeon in Palm Beach County, Florida to hold both of these honors.
Prior to coming into the office to consult with Dr. Reddy, patients are frequently confused/overwhelmed by the number of options involving breast implants.
Choosing the "right" West Palm Beach breast implants is a combination of art and science. The size should fit your objectives, your breast dimensions, your lifestyle, and your lifestage. The end result should be a natural look in which your enhanced breasts beautifully integrate with your frame and existing breast tissue. Dr. Reddy and you will determine together the implant size for your goals and the implant "profile" (which determines how far your breasts project from your body) to create attractive cleavage and a beautiful look.
During a free, private consultation, Dr. Reddy can explore a patient's goals/expectations and her lifestyle/lifestage to work with her to develop a surgical plan that best meets her vision.
Saline Breast Implants Vs. Silicone Breast Implants
Generally, the first decision Dr. Reddy and the patient need to make together is whether to opt for Saline Breast Implants or Silicone Gel Breast Implants.
The advantage of silicone gel breast implants is primarily aesthetic: they look and feel so soft and natural that they typically cannot be distinguished from breasts without implants provided they do not develop a capsular contracture. They also have a lower rate of rippling and wrinkling. Also, because silicone is lighter than saline, the risk of downward displacement due to gravity is lower.
There are advantages of saline breast implants. They are less expensive (by about $1000- $1500) and frequently require a shorter scar.
Silcone gel implants frequently require a longer scar as they are pre-filled by the manufacturer, so they must be able to fit through the incision. In general, larger implants require longer scars. The length of the scar may be shortened with the use of a keller funnel, but this does add a nominal extra cost.
The risk of capsular contracture is slightly less with saline breast implants. However, this risk has been reduced since the breast implant companies are now including capsular contracture as part of their warranties for patients having primary breast augmentations.
This is because silicone implants might incur a late capsular contracture due to implant rupture whereas saline implants do not generally form capsular contractures in response to rupture or deflation. Finally, silicone gel implants might rupture “silently”, such that there is no outward evidence that a rupture has occurred. Physical exam by Dr. Reddy will identify about 30% of ruptures, whereas MRI will identify about 90% of ruptures, so women with silicone gel breast implants may consider MRI scans.
High Profile Breast Implants vs. Moderate Profile Breast Implants vs. Moderate Plus Profile Breast Implantsilicone gel implants have a natural upper pole slope when placed in the dual plane technique. High profile implants in general, in my opinion, give women a tapered, less matronly and a more thin appearance in the upper chest region. They are fuller and have more projection.
High profile silicone gels are useful in patients who have multiple capsulectomies, where visibility and rippling become a problem along the medial cleavage area. Although it may not completely remove the visibility and rippling, it may reduce it significantly versus textured implants as well as saline implants. The majority of the implants used in your practice are high profile saline and silicone implants because 1) again, they leave women with a more tapered appearance; 2) less visibility and rippling; and 3) more enhanced AP projection.
High profile implants come in both silicone gel and saline breast implants through Allergan and Mentor Corporation. The high profile implants have increased anterior/posterior projection and have a reduced lateral width or diameter. These implants, both saline and silicone, have reduced rippling and visibility due to a rounder shape to the breast implant.
The high profile silicone gel implants have a natural upper pole slope when placed in the dual plane technique. High profile implants are fuller and have more projection.

Moderate plus profile implants are a compromise between the moderate profile (the widest and flattest implants, the least projection) and the high profile saline or silicone implants (the most projection and least in diameter or width). The moderate plus saline and silicone implants have a mid range of anterior/posterior projection and are not quite as wide as the more flattened moderate profile implant.Moderate plus profile implants are useful in patients who do not want too much upper pole fullness; however, do not want to have too much lateral width as well. These implants are excellent in the cohesive gels (also known as "gummy bears" breast implants) as well. The biggest advantage of moderate plus profile implants is not too much projection, especially useful for patients who are somewhat narrow along the thoracic cavity and those who do want a slightly less upper pole fullness that would found on the high profile saline and silicone gels.
Moderate profile implants. Moderate profile saline and silicone implants are the most commonly requested breast implants. They have the least projection but tend to look more natural on most women.
Breast Implant Companies
Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, West Palm Beach board certified plastic surgeon, utilizes the breast implants from the three companies that are approved by the FDA for use in the United States.
Natrelle (part of the Allergan company) manufacture both saline implants and silicone-filled implants. They are most commonly requested breast implants for breast augmentation which includes both primary breast augmentation to increase breast size, as well as revision surgery to correct or improve the result of a primary breast augmentation surgery.
Mentor is also another excellent source for silicone gel and saline breast implants. Mentor has sizing and profiles that are distinct from Natrelle so Dr. Reddy has the ability to better satisfy a patient's goals/epectations driven by personal preference, anatomy, and health.
Sientra specializes in cohesive gel implants (also known as gummy bear breast implants). There 5th generation implants are especially beneficial for patients who seek upper pole fullness. Note: the new Natrelle Inspira breast implants are also benefical for women seeking upper pole fullness.
Incision & Breast Implant Placement
When determining where to place the breast augmentation incision, Dr. Reddy considers your desires and the implant type being used. He typically places the incisions either around the areola or under the breast, because these locations result in minimal scarring for most patients. Silicone implants usually require larger incisions than saline implants.
The implants can be placed either between the breast tissue and the chest muscle (subglandular) or below breast tissue and the chest muscle (subpectoral placement). The most common placement is subpectoral because this positioning allows for more complete coverage of the breast implants leading to generally more natural feel/look of the implants in the long-term. This position will also decrease the potential for rippling and/or palpability of the implants (which may increase with time, weight loss, and/or post-pregnancy changes).
The submuscular positioning also tends to interfere with mammography less so than in the sub glandular position. The incidence of breast implant encapsulation (capsular contraction) is also decreased with implants placed in the sub muscular position.

Frequently Asked Questions: Breast Augmentation in West Palm Beach
Question: How Many Times Will I Meet with Dr. Reddy prior to my breast augmentation surgery?
Answer: Most of our patients like to come in 2 - 3 times prior to breast augmentation surgery. We offer free, private consultations, and will work with patients until they feel comfortable and can provide informed consent to the procedure. There is no time limit for any of the consultations, and no time limit for the overall consultation process.
Question: Will breast augmentation prevent my breasts from sagging?
Answer: Although the implants and capsule will provide the breasts natural support, your breasts are still susceptible to the factors that lead breasts to relax including gravity stretching the skin, the skin losing elasticity, and breast tissue often decreasing with weight changes and pregnancy.
Question: Can I breastfeed after surgery?
Answer: Most women can breastfeed successfully after breast augmentation, but you will not know for sure until you actually try. During surgery, I can minimize impact to the milk ducts by placing the implants below the chest muscle and keeping incisions away from the nipples. Before your surgery, it's important to inform me of your future desire to breast feed.
Question: Can I combine other plastic surgery procedures with my breast augmentation?
Answer: Yes. Many women in West Palm Beach interested in breast augmentation choose a "mommy makeover" to restore a more youthful, pre-pregnancy shape. This customized set of procedures commonly includes breast lift, tummy tuck, liposuction, and butt lift.
