Your breasts are a central and important feature of your body, so it is only natural that you want them to look their best. If you have aged or had children, your breasts may not be as firm or symmetrical as they can be. Noted Naples, FL plastic surgeon Dr. Paul M. Gardner is an expert in many of the most requested breast enhancements including breast augmentation, breast implant revision, and breast reduction. Dr. Leopoldo M. Baccaro specializes in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, and graduated from the distinguished residency program at Houston Methodist Hospital originally founded by Dr. Thomas Biggs and Dr. Thomas Cronin, collaborators in the creation of the first silicone gel breast implant. Our surgical team at Naples Plastic Surgery understands that imperfect breasts can produce a poor self-image and inhibit confidence, so they offer their specialized expertise in the latest surgical techniques to enhance your breasts.
Ok–you’ve decided you’re going to have a breast augmentation. Now, you have to ask this very important question of your surgeon–and it’s something you’ve probably already done some research on–is what kind of implant are you going to use?
There are basically two types of implants. There’s saline and silicone. What we’re referring to specifically is what makes up the implant and what’s on the inside of the shell. Saline is saltwater. It’s a very safe natural material, if it leaks, it gets absorbed by the body so a lot of people like that as part of the safety factor of having an augmentation. With saline implants, it doesn’t quite feel as natural as silicone implants do because it is saltwater which has a different texture of density compared to breast tissue, but it is a very popular implant.
Silicone implants have silicone gel. Silicone gel has a much more natural feel to it. It feels like breast tissue so when the implant is inside and you feel the breast, it actually feels real. It’s hard to tell that the implants are even in there. This is really good for patients that don’t have a lot of breast tissue covering the implant. If they just have a little bit of skin, just a little bit of breast tissue, silicone’s definitely the preferred implant because it feels more natural.
