Breast Implants – What Are Your Options?
When considering breast augmentation surgery, we will discuss your implant options. There are two different implants to choose from and each has their own advantages. Saline is a very safe option because if it ever leaks, it’s simply salt water and a non-urgent replacement can be done. Saline has a firmer feel as compared to gel and they feel more natural because the gel simulates fat. If a gel implant leaks, it can stick to tissues surrounding the implant and can be cause for surgical intervention. All implants are either placed above the muscle (pectoralis major) or below. When making the placement choice, we consider the shape of the patient and the desired size outcome. This surgery is performed in the operating room under general anesthesia, takes about an hour to perform and is done on an outpatient basis.
