The PIAC team meets with Dr Anoop Rastogi

On Monday the 4th July 2011 PIAC had the pleasure of hosting Dr Anoop Rastogi, one of Australia’s leading plastic surgeons, for a seminar on Polyurethane breast augmentations.

Dr Anoop has been practicing plastic surgery for the past 16 years and his extreme wealth of knowledge particularly in the use of polyurethane implants made for an empowering afternoon for the PIAC surgeons and staff. The key focus of the seminar was the use of the polyurethane implant and its benefits in breast augmentation surgery. Polyurethane implants are a polyurethane foam coating on the implant shell, which reduces the incidences of capsular contracture, by causing an inflammatory reaction that impeded the formation of a capsule of fibrous collagen tissue around the breast implant. (the collagen tissue wraps itself around individually packed pockets of the implants causing the implant to hold in its originally placed position). Dr Anoop had conducted a study where he performed 600 breast surgeries using the polyurethane implants and the percentage of surgeries that resulted in capsular contracture was below 1%.

Dr Anoop shared his experiences with the polyurethane implants and included some of his techniques used to perform the ‘perfect’ breast augmentation. PIAC took away a great deal of information from this seminar and look forward to growing our practice to new heights.

PIAC and Phuket International Hospital thank Dr Anoop for his time and a thoroughly enjoyed afternoon by all.
