What are my Breast Implant Options?
Breast augmentation surgery allows women to achieve her ideal breasts. There are many personalized options a woman has while planning her breast surgery with Dr. Sasson.
Dr. Sasson will consider the following key features when helping you decide which implants will best suit your body type:
- Shape (round or anatomically shaped implants)
- Cup size (implant size)
- Projection (bust profile)
- Desired texture (smooth or textured)
- Filled material (silicone or saline)
What is the difference between Saline and Silicone Breast Implants?
Breast implants vary in size, shape and in the materials from which they’re made. Saline Implants (which are approved by the FDA for women 18 years or above) have a shell made of silicone, which is filled with saline solution. The benefits of saline implants are cost and incision size. Saline implants cost significantly less than their silicone counterparts and the incision size during surgery is a bit smaller.
Silicone gel, or gummy bear implants (FDA-approved for women 22 years or older), are filled with a cohesive gel that is known for its close resemblance to natural breast tissue. Women who choose silicone implants may want to achieve a more natural look and feel. Silicone breast implants also come in different shapes and profiles, including the recently FDA approved, natural-looking anatomical shaped implant.
Combine Augmentation with Abdominoplasty for a Mommy Makeover
Many women combine their breast augmentation or breast lift with an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedure so they can enjoy the simultaneous benefits of a flat belly and perkier breasts. This combination is often referred to as a “Mommy Makeover,” because of its popularity with women who have had children. You certainly don’t need to be a mother to enjoy the benefits of these combined procedures, though. Any woman who has experienced weight fluctuations, watched her body change over time, and become increasingly dissatisfied with her appearance can benefit from this particularly helpful combination of procedures.
