SALINE VS. SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS
Once you’ve made the decision to have breast augmentation surgery in Chevy Chase, there are still a few other choices that must be made, such as implant material. Breast implants come in either silicone or saline and both options offer positive benefits for patients.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline implants are a great option for patients seeking minimal scarring and a natural, teardrop breast appearance. These implants are made of a silicone outer shell that is filled with saline solution during the procedure, which means it is possible to place these implants with smaller incisions. Patients over 18 can have saline breast implants inserted.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone breast implants are the most popular option in Chevy Chase and beyond. Providing natural-looking and feeling results, silicone breast implants are made of a silicone rubber outer layer that is filled with cohesive silicone gel. These implants come in both round and shaped options, and can be customized to provide many different looks. Chevy Chase breast augmentation patients over 22 can choose silicone breast implants.
POTENTIAL BREAST AUGMENTATION COMPLICATIONS
Breast augmentation surgery is a safe and effective option for enlarging the breasts, and has some of the highest patient satisfaction ratings. Though complications are rare, some of our Chevy Chase breast augmentation patients are concerned with “capsular contracture.” This condition can alter the shape of the breast implant or cause unnatural firmness.
Our board certified plastic surgeons use special techniques and practices to prevent capsular contracture. Should it occur, we are able to quickly remedy the situation and ensure our patients in Chevy Chase are happy with their breast augmentation results.
HOW LONG DO BREAST IMPLANTS LAST?
While breast implants are not meant to last forever, there is no standard timeline for when replacements will be required. It is likely that you will need to have your implants replaced at some point in your lifetime, but when that occurs will be dependent on your anatomy, age, and implants.
