Breast augmentation with lift surgery uses different types of breast implants, depending upon your desired results. The two most commonly used types of breast implants are saline and silicone.
Saline implants are filled with a salt-water solution, which is sterilized. The main benefit of saline breast implants is the smaller incision required to insert them, smaller than the incision silicone implants require. The saline solution is completely harmless.
Silicone implants’ main benefit is their highly natural look and feel. Silicone implants tend to feel more like the real thing than saline implants. However, they generally require a larger incision than saline implants.
Please contact Dr. Pablo Prichard for more information. Choosing the right implant is a highly personalized decision, one which should be made using proper education, a doctor’s individualized recommendation and of course, your own aesthetic goals.
