Breasts are an important part of your body as a woman. If you’re displeased with their size or shape, you may be a good candidate for breast implants. Breast implants can restore breast volume you may have lost after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss.

Saline vs. Silicone Implants

There are two types of implants that may be used during breast augmentation: saline and silicone. Saline implants feature a sterile saltwater filling and silicone shell.  Dr. Stile inserts these implants empty and fills them once they placed. If saline implants rupture, the sterile salt will naturally absorb into your body.

Silicone breast implants are more popular than their silicone alternatives because they offer a natural appearance with less firmness and heaviness. They are pre-filled with a cohesive silicone gel that’s similar to natural breast tissue and pricier than saline implants.

The Longevity of Breast Implants

Thanks to technology and medical breakthroughs, breast implants have dramatically improved in quality. Although they don’t come with an expiration date, they do not last forever. Fortunately, however, both saline and silicone implants can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. You are welcome to remove them sooner due to a cosmetic concern or complication.


Good Candidates for Breast Augmentation

If you hope to change your breast size or shape, correct breast asymmetry, or reconstruct your breasts after mastectomy, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation. You may also benefit from it if you’d like to restore lost volume in your breasts from pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Dr. Stile can inform you of whether you’re a good candidate for this procedure during a private consultation. 

Breast augmentation surgery can improve the size and shape of your breasts and help you feel more confident in your own skin. It can also take years off your figure and allow her to wear clothing in clothing that you may have not felt comfortable wearing in the past.
