Many of our breast augmentation patients have questions about implants. Which implant is the best choice for their bodies? What’s the difference between saline and silicone implants? Today, we’ll answer some common questions about implants. Don’t see your questions on this list? Come in for a consultation with triple board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sajjadian, as he is widely considered one of the top surgeons in California.
What’s the Difference Between Saline and Silicone Breast Implants?
Saline and silicone implants both have unique advantages. Saline implants feature a silicone outer shell, which is filled with a sterile saline solution. Dr. Sajjadian often places the shell into the breast unfilled and then fills the implant once it is in place. This can allow for a smaller incision. Leaks are rare, but easier to spot in a saline implant. This is because the solution leaks out and is absorbed by the body, causing the breast to deflate. Saline implants can be a more economical choice.
Silicone implants feature an outer silicone shell filled with a silicone gel solution. These implants look and feel very natural, even out of the breast. They are often the best choice for women with minimal natural breast tissue.
We’ll help you with the saline vs. silicone decision. We want you to love how your breasts look and feel!
What Size Implant Is Right for Me?
Before your consultation, it may be useful to spend some time considering your ideal breasts. What do your dream breasts look like? Think about your goals for surgery. Are you looking to increase breast size or simply restore lost volume after pregnancy? Dr. Sajjadian will help you choose the right implant size after examining your body and discussing your desires. As a highly skilled triple board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sajjadian has established a reputation as one of the best breast surgeons in the area.
Does Implant Placement Really Matter?
Implants are placed either over or under the pectoral muscle. Both placements have advantages, but one choice may be preferable for a specific patient. Placement does matter, but you don’t have to make the decision alone. Dr. Sajjadian is well known for his stunning, natural looking breast augmentation results. He will work with you on the placement decision in order to achieve this.
How Long Will My Implants Last?
Implants are designed to be long-lasting, but they may not last forever. They typically last for many years, but they are replaceable if a problem does occur. Dr. Sajjadian will explain how to maintain your implants. Don’t worry—it’s easy!
