Saline versus Silicone Breast Enhancement
After you have made the decision to undergo breast augmentation, the next step is to determine which type of implant is best suited to your needs and goals. There are two types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Both have shells made of silicone rubber material; the primary difference between the two types of implants is how they are filled and what they are filled with. During your initial consultation with Dr. Vitolo, we can discuss your aesthetic goals with you and recommend the course of action that will best meet your needs.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline implants offer a number of appealing benefits, among them versatility. Saline implants are inserted and then filled with a saltwater solution through a valve, allowing for volume adjustments during and after surgery. Using Dr. Vitolo’s unique scar less techniques, saline implants are also easily inserted into the body through minimal incisions, making the healing period more comfortable and allowing for more discrete scars. Saline implants continue to be a popular choice for breast augmentation as they are effective and safe.
Silicone Breast Implants
After 14 years of being unavailable in the United States, silicone breast implants were re-introduced onto the market in 2006. While the insertion of silicone breast implants typically requires larger incisions than saline implants, the satisfaction rates are high. One risk to consider with silicone implants is that leakage detection is more difficult than with saline implants. Now, the new “Gummy Bear” silicone-shaped implants are available. If you are interested in silicone breast implants, we would be happy to discuss the benefits and risks with you in person.
