SALINE VS. SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS
For patients interested in breast augmentation in Washington DC, there are many options to consider, including which type of breast implant you want. There are two main types of breast implant: saline and silicone.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline implants are made of a outer silicone rubber shell that is filled with saline solution during surgery. Saline implants require slightly smaller incisions because they are filled after insertion, making them a popular option for Washington DC breast augmentation patients who want minimally visible scars. If a breast implant rupture should occur, saline will be safely absorbed into the body. Saline implants provide long-lasting, natural-looking results and are available to patients over 18.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone gel implants are becoming a popular choice among patients looking for natural-looking and feelings results. Silicone implants are composed of an outer layer of silicone rubber and filled with cohesive silicone gel that closely resembles the look and feel of natural breast tissue. Washington DC breast augmentation patients seeking silicone breast implants must be at least 22 years old.
COMBINING BREAST AUGMENTATION WITH OTHER PROCEDURES
Many of our Washington DC breast augmentation patients benefit from combining procedures for enhanced results. If you’ve had children, recently lost weight, or are concerned over the tolls aging has taken on your breasts, a combined breast lift with augmentation may provide the best results.
For mothers hoping to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies, a “mommy makeover“may be a great option. This is a personalized set of procedures that may include breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and/or liposuction, among other procedures.
BREAST IMPLANT SIZE AND PLACEMENT
The size and placement of your implants can greatly impact your breast augmentation results. Implants may be place behind the breast gland (over the muscle) or behind the pectoralis muscle (under the muscle). During your Washington DC plastic surgery consultation, our board certified plastic surgeons will recommend placement and incision options based on your unique anatomy and desired outcome.
