Best breast implants pictures

Breast implants come in saline and silicone. The benefits of saline implants are that they are just filled with salt water – so, if they rupture, your body just absorbs the saline.

Additionally, their size can be modified in the operating room by putting in more saline.

This is useful if one breast is bigger than the other. By adjusting the size of the implant on the operating room table, your surgeon can attempt to give you the best symmetry.

Another benefit of saline implants is that they cost about half as much as the silicone implants (implant cost – not total surgery cost).

The benefit of silicone is, in my opinion, a more natural feel and shape to the breast.

You should ask your surgeon if you can feel a saline and a silicone implant in their office so you can appreciate the difference.

In general, the cost of the silicone implant is twice that of the saline implant (again for the implants, not the total surgery cost). Depending on the size of the implant you are having, the incision for the silicone implant may have to be slight longer than that for a saline implant.

Which implant is best?

There is no right or wrong answer. That is the nice part of having both saline and silicone gel implants. You can decided along with your surgeon which one suits your specific situation the best. Salin is less expensive, requires a smaller incision, and if it does break it just deflates and no special testing is needed to diagnose its rupture.

However, it does not feel as soft as silicone and does have more rippling and once it does deflate the obvious asymmetry requires a more speedy replacement. Silicone gel implants cost more, require a larger incision and if they do break you need an MRI to evaluate whether or not it has ruptured which is an additional cost.

However, it does feel much softer and significantly less rippling and if it does break there is no deflation and you don’t have an asymmetry. They both have positives and negatives that is best discussed during a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. (Bahram Ghaderi, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)

We utilize both Saline and Gel implants in our practice. Approximately 60% of women now chose Gel implants for their augmentation. Since the gel implants were release by the FDA approximately 2 years ago, many surgeons and women have been convinced of their superiority. The gels have a more natural feel, with less chance of feeling ripples over time.

They are more expensive and can add $900 to the cost of surgery. For the last 15 years, we mainly used saline implants. Over 300,000 women had augmentation each year and were very happy with their implants. You can view the gallery of best breast implants pictures and be convinced of this.

It is an individual choice between you and your doctor. Be aware that the gels need to be evaluated by your surgeon for years. The FDA recommends an MRI within 3-5 years of surgery to evaluate for a leak. Overall, both implants are quite safe and will provide you years of an improved shape and look. (David A.
