Different types of breast augmentation
Breast implants are placed either over or under the muscle. Many factors will determine which placement is best for you including body type and existing breast tissue and desired results.
Both saline and silicone implants can be inserted through a variety of incisions. While being experienced in all methods of the breast augmentation procedure, our doctors are specialists in the Endoscopic Axillary Technique. This procedure leaves no scars on the breasts and ensures the quickest recovery possible. They are also certified to perform The Keller Funnel “No Touch Technique” Breast Augmentation which allows for the placement of silicone gel implants with minimal force and without having to touch the actual implant.
Saline vs. Silicone Breast Implants
The major difference between saline and silicone implants is what they are filled with. Saline implants consist of an empty shell that is filled with sterile saline (salt water) solution at the time of surgery. Silicone implants also have a silicone shell but are filled with a cohesive, silicone gel. Most surgeons and patients agree that silicone implants look and feel more natural, while saline implants are firmer and less natural.
