What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation, better known as breast implants, is the enhancement of the projection and shape of the breasts using implants. Breast implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes and the implants can be filled with either silicone or saline. You can decide how enhanced your breasts are and whether to have the breast augmentation done using silicone or saline.
One of the most common complaints we hear from women who come to the Plastic Surgery Institute is that their breasts don’t match the proportions of their body. Filling out that strapless dress or bikini may be hard to do if their cleavage is not the right proportion to their bodies. It’s why women seek out Miami breast implants, so they can have more cleavage in order to boost their self-confidence, esteem, and to feel sexier. Having a breast augmentation procedure done is one of the best options for achieving the projection, size, or shape of the breasts you truly desire.
Should I choose Saline or Silicone for my Miami Breast Implants?
There is a lot to take into consideration when having breast augmentation done, and one of the most common questions we receive is, ‘saline or silicone?’ In order to help our patients make the right choice, we’ve decided to provide some information on each. This will help you to better decide what the best option is for you when it comes to your breast implants, and whether you feel it’s a good fit for you.
First off, saline is simply salt water. The breast implant is filled with saline, but is under filled. This is so the implant looks real, because if the implant was filled completely it would not appear to be real. Many women choose to go with saline implant since the incision made is much smaller than the one you would need for a silicone implant.
One of the downsides to saline implants is that the implant can show pleats in the implant shell. Visually, this looks like wrinkles or ripples, especially on people who are very thin. The breast implant also feels like a baggie full of water rather than natural breast tissue. While visually these are hard to see, for the individual receiving the implant, they may not like the feel of the saline breast implant.
Silicone on the other hand is a breast implant filled with a viscous silicone gel. The implant is not filled completely for the same reasons the saline implant is not completely filled. Unlike the saline shell though, the silicone shell undulates and is supported with the thick gel. In thin individuals, there is little to no visual wrinkling and rippling of the breast implant. The implant also feels more like normal breast tissue too.
Another reason why some people may decide to go with a silicone breast implant versus a saline one is because the saline implant can deflate over time. Saline implants usually see a 3-5% rate of deflation depending on who the manufacturer is for the implant. Deflation does not cause any pain, and is not dangerous. The saline is being absorbed and this is what causes the deflation. In most cases, the manufacturer has a warranty on the implant, and simply provides a new one. They may also provide the funds to have the implant replaced as well since the operation is so simple.
