Customizing your procedure begins with selecting the type of breast implant...

Breast Implant Materials 

Dr. Robles offers two primary types of breast implants:
Breast implant in gloved hand

​Saline Breast Implants

Saline implants have a silicone shell, which is filled with a saline solution. After Dr. Robles has positioned the implants inside your breasts, he will fill them with a sterile saltwater solution. Since saline implants are filled after placement, they typically require a smaller incision and your breast size can be adjusted afterward to an extent. While saline implants generally look less lifelike than their silicone alternative, some patients prefer their rounder aesthetic. Saline implants also tend to be the more affordable option.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone implants consist of a silicone shell, pre-filled with a silicone gel. While silicone cannot be processed by the body, studies have shown silicone implants are just as safe as their saline counterparts. The density of the silicone gel prevents the material from leaking or migrating in the event of a rupture. Many women prefer silicone breast implants because they look and feel more like natural tissue. We also offer gummy bear implants, a special kind of silicone implant, that produce particularly natural-feeling breasts. 

Customizing Implant Size and More for Your Body 

During your consultation at our Phoenix practice, we create digital previews of your potential results and have you try on implant sizers to help you select from your options. Aside from choosing between saline and silicone breast implants, you will also customize the profile, shape, texture, and size.

Profile

The breast implant profile refers to how far the implant projects from the chest wall. Breast implants come in a range of profiles including moderate, moderate plus, high, and ultra-high.

Shape

You can also customize the shape of your breast implants. Round implants offer a fuller overall shape and more dramatic cleavage. Tear-drop implants produce a more natural slope and curvature of the breasts. We may also recommend a breast lift to correct sagging of the natural tissue.

Texture

Patients can also choose between smooth or textured implants. Smooth implants often feel more like natural breast tissue, where textured implants may have a lower chance of capsular contracture, where the tissue around the implant tightens and hardens.

At Robles Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. 

Preview Your Results

You and Dr. Robles will review all of your options so you can make an informed decision about your implants. To ensure your satisfaction, you will try on sizers and look at digital previews of your results before you undergo surgery.

Procedure Timeline 

After you and Dr. Robles decide on the materials and specifications for your breast implants, we will schedule a date for your surgery. Here is what patients can generally expect on the day of their procedure...

Sedation

We first administer general anesthesia to ensure you don't experience pain throughout the breast augmentation. Dr. Robles uses a special type that minimizes nausea and dizziness after the procedure. Once you are sedated, Dr. Robles can begin the operation.

Incisions

You will decide between a few discreet locations to make the implant incision. The most common, an inframammary incision, is made in the natural crease under the breast mound. We can also make a periareolar incision, around the areola, or a transaxillary incision, made under the armpit.

Implant Placement

Depending on your body and type of implants, the plastic surgeon will perform a submuscular or subglandular placement. Submuscular implants, which account for 90 percent of our cases, are inserted under the pectoral muscle while subglandular placement positions the implants above the muscle.

Sutures

The incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue. Dr. Robles may also seal the area with surgical tape or skin adhesive before bandaging the area. Breast augmentation is typically an outpatient procedure meaning you can return home after the operation to recover.

Breast Implant Risks

Dr. Robles will give you detailed post-operative instructions following your breast augmentation surgery. While recovery will be very similar for patients who have received saline and silicone implants, it is important to be aware of potential side effects and risks posed by the different materials.

Rupture

In the event of a rupture, the silicone and saline implants will react differently. A saline implant is likely to deflate and be immediately noticeable. With silicone, however, the material may stay in the breast pocket leaving the patient unaware of the complication. If you decide on silicone gel, be prepared to undergo regular exams in the future to check for rupture and gel migration.

Capsular Contracture

Silicone gel implants are more often associated with capsular contracture. This is a condition where the scar tissue that develops around the breast implant tightens, causing pain or changes in the appearance of the breast.

Maintenance

Both types of implants will require some maintenance. Saline implants will usually need replacement every 10 to 15 years. Silicone implants tend to last longer and need replacement after two decades. It is important to note that neither type of implant will prevent sagging. The natural aging process or weight fluctuation can cause this concern but a breast lift can restore a more youthful appearance.
