Because Dr. Lowenstein is the only plastic surgeon in the region to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant, Dr. Lowenstein now provides the most implant choices available to Santa Barbara women seeking breast enlargement. With different advantages to each implant, Dr. Lowenstein can now provide the most individualized breast enhancement to his Central Coast patients. While many patients prefer the convenience associated with saline implants, others prefer the look and feel of silicone gel. The firmer feel of the “gummy bear” shaped implants may offer advantages to some women, while the IDEAL IMPLANT can provide a more natural gel-like feel without the maintenance associated with silicone gel. Paramount to Dr. Lowenstein’s priorities is safety, and all of the implant choices we offer are FDA cleared and considered safe after extensive clinical research.
