Breast Implant Health: The importance of ultrasounds.

One of the most common questions surrounding breast augmentation is, “What is the maintenance for breast implants?” Dr. Diederich and our team of Patient Care Coordinators are here to help you feel more comfortable during your consultation. In this blog, we will discuss the importance of breast implant ultrasounds and the services we offer.

At MidAmerica Plastic Surgery, your care is our top priority. One of our core values is to outperform the patient experience. To provide you with the best experience possible, we now offer breast implant ultrasounds with the Clarius HG3 Portable Ultrasound Machine. 

When it comes to breast implant health, early detection and monitoring are crucial.  Breast implant ultrasounds are a non-invasive way to check for complications such as implant rupture or leakage. The Clarius HD3 Portable Ultrasound Machine is a cutting-edge device that has redefined the field of medical imaging. Its portability, ease of use, and high-definition imaging capabilities make it a valuable tool at MidAmerica Plastic Surgery. 

The Clarius HD3 boasts high-resolution imaging capabilities, providing clear and detailed images. This is crucial when assessing the integrity of breast implants. By using the Clarius HD3, our patient care coordinators and Dr. Diederich can accurately visualize the implant and surrounding breast tissue, making it easier to detect any issues. Over time, breast implants may undergo changes due to natural wear and tear or other factors. Regular ultrasounds can help track these changes and ensure that the implants remain in good condition.

We recommend that all breast augmentation patients receive a breast ultrasound every two years. Even if you didn’t receive your breast augmentation at MidAmerica, our team would be happy to perform your screenings! 

By facilitating early detection and monitoring of breast implant complications, the Clarius HD3 contributes to the overall health and well-being of our patients with breast implants. As medical technology continues to evolve, we can expect even more innovative solutions to enhance patient care and safety.
