For many women, achieving a more beautiful bustline is a top priority for increased confidence in their bodies. However, the perfect bust doesn’t always mean the same thing for every woman! While some women are looking for a more voluminous appearance, other women may desire a smaller or firmer look and feel. To help patients achieve their ideal image, Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery offers patients two types of breast augmentation options to deliver desired results in the Charlotte area.
Breast augmentation procedures in Charlotte are personalized to satisfy each woman’s specific needs. Both saline and silicone implants at Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery are FDA-approved for breast augmentation, but offer some variety in the results they deliver, giving patients the freedom to choose the fit that is best for them.
Saline implants require a smaller incision than other options, helping women enjoy the benefits of the procedure without worrying about noticeable side effects. Because the implant is filled with salt water, in the rare case of a rupture, the body would absorb the saline and the patient would safely be able to replace the implant without worrying about negative consequences. However, saline implants are not ideal for all patients. Saline implants may not feel as natural as their silicone counterparts, and also may be more visible on women with less body fat than a gel alternative would be.
Another option for patients is a silicone gel implant. Silicone implants feel very natural, and are very resistant to damage. Because the silicone gel is so malleable, patients have a lot of flexibility in determining size and shape, giving them more freedom to pick the perfect breast for their ideal appearance.
Prior to selecting which breast implant is best for you, the staff at Criswell & Criswell encourages patients to feel both types of implants side by side to determine which suits their needs most. With two FDA-approved options, patients have all the flexibility they need to unveil a more beautiful bust line.
