The Aesthetic Society and The Aesthetic Foundation have launched the American Registry for Breast Implant Surveillance (ARISE) through their Aesthetic One app, partnering with a U.S. FDA-recognized platform to transform breast implant registries. ARISE enables implant registration with manufacturers and contributes data to the registry, currently comprising over 45,000 registered implants, making it one of the nation’s most extensive breast implant registries.

“ARISE represents a leap forward in patient safety, outcomes research, and overall quality improvement in breast implant procedures,” says Caroline Glicksman, MD, president of The Aesthetic Foundation. “By leveraging the Aesthetic One app, ARISE collects unbiased, validated data that will be reported to regulatory bodies and utilized to collaborate with other international breast implant registries.”

David Sieber, treasurer of The Aesthetic Foundation, also spoke out about ARISE, adding: “By seamlessly integrating Aesthetic One with the ARISE registry, we are not only enhancing efficiency but also elevating the standard of care for our patients.”

Aesthetic One’s interface streamlines data collection with dropdown menus and a built-in scanner, allowing quick implant registration and data entry by surgeons and staff in under two minutes. Since its 2021 launch, over 700 physicians have adopted Aesthetic One, aiding in the growth of the ARISE registry. Through ARISE, The Aesthetic Society leads initiatives focused on:

  • Patient safety: Monitoring and tracking the safety and performance of breast implants over time for early detection of potential issues or complications.
  • Outcome research: Facilitating comprehensive research on the outcomes of breast implant surgeries, including long-term effects, complications, and patient satisfaction.
  • Quality improvement: Providing data for surgeons, regulatory authorities, and manufacturers to identify trends, assess implant effectiveness, and improve the quality and safety of procedures.
  • Regulatory compliance: Meeting regulatory standards by establishing registries to ensure approved implants meet safety and efficacy criteria.
  • Surveillance of trends: Monitoring trends in breast implant utilization, aiding healthcare professionals, researchers, and policymakers.
  • Evidence-based decision-making: Using registry data to make evidence-based decisions regarding implant selection, surgical techniques, and postoperative care for improved patient outcomes.
