Understanding Breast Implants
The breasts can help define a woman’s femininity, and when thinking about breast augmentation, you should consider what type of breast implant can help you achieve the look you want. Your implant choice affects the way you look and feel following your surgery; therefore, it is important to make an informed decision.
Saline implants: Saline implants have a silicone shell and are filled with salt water. During the surgery they are placed into the breast empty and then filled once they are in place.
Silicone implants: Silicone implants also have a silicone shell but are filled with silicone gel. These implants provide natural-looking and -feeling results.
Implants are usually inserted under the muscle to give a more natural look, but Dr. Breitbart will recommend the best approach based on your specific case.
Adding a Breast Lift to Your Augmentation
Breast lift surgery is aa procedure that involves repositioning the nipple and areola, lifting the breasts, and eliminating sagging skin. Combining breast lift with your augmentation can help you get the most out of your surgery for patients that have sagginess, or ptosis, of their breasts. Breast augmentation with breast lift would address both increasing breast volume, as well as tightening and lifting the breast.
