With breast augmentation surgery, two main types of implant materials are generally used. Saline and silicone breast implants offer different feels and sensations for patients; therefore, it is important to understand the difference when deciding which type is right for you.
SALINE BREAST IMPLANTS
- Implant is filled with saline solution at the time of surgery.
- Surgeon determines the final fill volume of the shell during surgery.
- Patients can sometimes see and feel the edge of a saline implant.
SILICONE GEL IMPLANTS
- Gel implants come in a variety of predetermined sizes and shapes.
- Shape and size feel more natural and akin to natural breast tissue.
- Have not been shown to be linked to autoimmune diseases, as noted by the FDA in 2006.
FOR THE LOOK YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED
The first step in the process is coming to our office for a consultation, where our plastic surgeon will walk through the options available to you and give you an exam. Depending on your physique and body type, our surgeon will recommend a particular type of implant and the optimal size. This initial medical evaluation also helps to determine if your body is healthy enough for the surgery. The surgery lasts about 2 hours and can be performed as an outpatient procedure. As a rule, general anesthesia is used during breast augmentation surgery. Depending on the type of implant utilized, the saline or silicone implant will go above or below your chest muscle. Most surgeons in the United States prefer the submuscular area for breast enhancement surgery.
