Look How it Benefits You
One of the most important parts of planning and preparing for breast augmentation is choosing the right type of implants. Silicone and saline breast implants are currently the most popular options for breast enhancement. Understanding your goals and expectations for this procedure will help you choose the right implant type for you. There are some impressive advantages that you stand to gain by opting for saline-filled implants.
The breasts can be a very large part of a woman’s physical identity. Women with full, uplifted and attractive breasts often have far more confidence than do women with small, sagging or deflated breasts. Breast augmentation makes it possible to alter the shape, size and positioning of the breasts for a more appealing look overall. While both silicone and saline breast implants can provide a range of benefits to this end, saline implants are considered the more natural of these two options in many cases. That’s because these simple gel inserts are filled with a natural saline solution that can be easily and safely absorbed by the body should a patient’s implants ever rupture or leak.
Saline breast implants provide an increased ability to create the specific level of volume and breast shape you want and need for creating a well-balanced and appealing physique. This is especially important for patients who are looking to correct problems with asymmetrical or uneven breasts. These implants are inserted into the body as empty shells. Once in place, our surgeon can then add the appropriate level of volume by gradually adding the saline solution. While you’ll be able to pre-determine the general size of your implants, the ability to make minor adjustments after insertion will make it easier to optimally tailor your results according to your goals and expectations.
Rapid Detection of Leaks
Given that saline is absorbed by the body, leak detection with saline breast implants is considerably easier and often immediate. Being able to identify and address problems like these in a timely fashion will ultimately limit the impact that they have. For those worried about the potential long-term effects of breast enhancement, opting for saline breast implants can provide greater security and peace of mind.
