Saline Breast Implants are an excellent choice for patients who are ready to have Breast Augmentation along with their Breast Lift Surgery, but unsure if they want gel breast implants. The breast implants are filled once they have been placed in the breast pocket. There are several choices for your breast augmentation incision site and the doctor may recommend one based on your body type. The incisions will gradually fade with time.
Saline implants are filled with salt water. If the Breast Implant shell ruptures, the saline will be absorbed by your body. Breast implant failure rates vary from each manufacturer, but a yearly average rate is less than 1%.
Silicone gel breast implants are now available to patients who are 22 years old or older. Gel breast implants offer a lot of benefits and may be recommended by your physician. This is a personal decision and the physicians at the Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery will work with you to help you select the best breast implant for you. Benefits of gel breast implants include:
- Breast Gel Implants can look and feel more natural
- Breast Gel Implants have a less chance of wrinkling over saline implants
- Breast Gel Implants are an excellent choice for patients who are very thin or smaller in frame
