Both saline and silicone breast implants are available, and each type has different qualities. Saline implants are filled after placement, which involves a smaller incision, and silicone implants have an extremely natural feel. We can discuss your choices and the various shapes and sizes of each, and the procedures necessary to place them, so you can come to an informed decision.
Breast Implant Options
As the years pass, your breasts can begin to sag, whether through pregnancy and breastfeeding or the loss of skin and tissue elasticity. A breast lift can restore your breasts to a higher, more youthful location by removing excess skin and tissue, and in some cases, reduce the size of an overlarge areola. Breast implants may be added to bring a firmer, rounder, plumper look.
Modern breast augmentation procedures produce far superior results. The size, shape, and “feel” of the breast implants, whether silicone or saline, is now more natural than ever. If you are ready to get the breast size and shape that you want, there is no better time. This procedure can add volume and correct misshapen breasts. Also if you feel your breasts look saggy and deflated, and want a more youthful, plump appeal, we can help.
If you are struggling with the problems of overlarge breasts, a breast reduction can bring you relief. Many factors can leave large breasts looking saggy and unappealing. Breast reduction surgery can relieve the back pain, allow you to wear standard clothing sizes and bras, and create a more balanced look to your overall body contour.
If you have had breast implants in the past and are unhappy with their size and shape, or are running into issues with capsular contracture (when the area around the implant has hardened and tightened), breast revision surgery can help. If you have older implants, replacing them may be necessary.
Your DNA may have given you very large nipples, or your nipples may have increased in size after breastfeeding. Nipple reduction surgery corrects these aesthetic issues, creating a more pleasing size, shape and placement.
After undergoing breast reconstruction surgery, one hopes that they will no longer run in problems in the future. Unfortunately, this is not always the case because every patient is living with unique issues, and only a complete evaluation will reveal the procedure that will be necessary for a revision.
