We believe that the best patient is a well-informed patient, so your initial visit will be full of details, such as procedure steps, possible risks, and typical breast augmentation costs.

Dr. McGuire is a clinical investigators for Allergan’s Style 410 highly cohesive (gummy bear) implant. In 2001, she was one if the first surgeons in the area to be invited to participate in this study. Dr. McGuire’s experiences with the Style 410 were presented in a paper at the International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons in Melbourne, Australia in February of 2008.

Dr. McGuire is one of eight plastic surgeons chosen to be a consultant for the curriculum committee for Allergan to teach other physicians how to use the Style 410 implant. She spent time in Stockholm, Sweden in June 2006 with Dr. Charles Randquist, considered an international expert in the use of the Style 410 implant. She also has extensive experience with other options for breast implants including silicone gel and saline implants.

Dr. McGuire uses dimensional planning, using the patient’s anatomy to determine the best option for each patient. The Style 410 implant is not always the best choice for breast augmentation and her depth of experience with all types of implants, including the Style 410, can help a patient decide which implant is best for their body.
