If you're interested in breast implants, you may be wondering how realistic they will feel and look after your procedure. You can choose between saline or silicone breast implants, both of which will offer a natural look and feel.
Both saline and silicone implants are approved by the FDA and each have some pros and some cons. Saline implants are more prone to rupture than silicone and can, occasionally, have a rippling effect because their interior is a fluid and not a gel. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are filled with a silicone gel and are less-likely to rupture. But they have a higher chance of causing capsules which can result in hardening. While both saline and silicone implants will have a natural look and feel, silicone will usually feel more natural than saline. But there are other considerations to be taken once an examination of the breasts has been completed.
Breast implants can be placed over or under your muscle and there are several different incision options. It will be best to discuss your options once you schedule a consultation with our New York plastic surgeon, Dr George Lefkovits. Dr. Lefkovits is a Board Certified plastic surgeon that has been performing breast augmentation surgeries for decades. He has the skills and expertise to determine the best type of implant, incision, and placement so you have optimal results.
