Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the difference between Saline and Silicone Gel Breast Implants?
- Implants are silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel (approved by the FDA, November, 2006). There are two primary types of fillers used in breast implants: saline filled and silicone gel filled implants. Saline implants have a silicone shell filled with sterile saline (salt water) liquid. Silicone gel implants have a silicone shell filled with a viscous silicone gel. Saline implants are firmer than silicone gel implants. Silicone gel implants better resemble the texture and feel of natural breast tissue. Both implant types are very safe, and each offers its own specific advantages.
An advantage of saline breast implants is that, if ruptured, the saline (salt solution) is absorbed by the body. A disadvantage is that saline breast implants are firmer than silicone gel implants and natural breast tissue, and are subject to fourteen times the amount of rippling and wrinkling as a silicone gel implant. Also, saline implants have a valve used to fill them during surgery (they arrive deflated from the manufacturer), which is another potential point of failure (leakage) not found in silicone gel implants, which arrive pre-filled from the manufacturer. This is especially important for very thin women who have little breast tissue to cover the implant, or for women who have a breast injury or need breast reconstruction.
Silicone gel-filled implants may provide a more natural feel. In November 2006, after fifteen years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved silicone breast implants for breast augmentation surgery.
- Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation and mastopexy?
- If you have sagging breasts and loss of fullness in the top portion of your breasts, you are likely a candidate for the breast augmentation. Depending on the degree of sagging, and whether the sagging involves the breast tissue alone or breast tissue and the nipples, you may be a candidate for a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure, either in concert with, or without, a breast augmentation procedure.
- Can I breastfeed after the breast augmentation and mastopexy operation?
- You will most likely be able to breastfeed after the breast lift with implants procedure, but it may depend on the kind of surgery you had and the type of incisions required.
- How long will the results of breast reduction surgery last?
- After breast reduction surgery, breasts will remain smaller than they would be if the procedure had never been performed. Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your breast size should remain fairly constant. However, the effects of aging and gravity may cause breasts to sag over time. If, after a period of years, you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may choose to undergo a breast lift procedure to restore their more youthful contour.
- Am I a candidate for Liposuction?
- The ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who is in good overall health, is not overweight but has one or more problem areas with unresponsive fat deposits. It is also important for patients to have realistic expectations, and remember that liposuction cannot be used as a means to obtain weight reduction. It is instead used to remove localized areas of stubborn fat after the patient has attempted other natural weight loss and exercise methods.
