The Two Types of Breast Implants
The breast augmentation procedure is designed to enhance the size of your breasts so that they complement the proportions of your body better and have a more attractive appearance. In order to provide the desired size increase, breast implants that have been sized to your specifications are inserted into the breasts.
You have two options for your breast implants: silicone-gel-filled implants and saline-filled implants. Both the saline and silicone fillings for the breast implants are cased in a soft shell made from silicone.
Saline implants are filled with a mixture of sodium chloride and water and can provide beautiful results. The silicone implants are made from a cohesive silicone gel that accurately mimics the look and feel of real breasts.
You will have full control over which implants you will receive for your procedure, and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Heistein can provide you with valuable information you need to make a properly informed decision. Contact us to schedule a consultation for your breast augmentation.
