Breast Implant Materials
Dr. Robles offers two primary types of breast implants:
- 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 salt water solution. Since saline implants are filled after placement, they typically require a smaller incision.
- Silicone breast implants: These implants have a silicone shell, and they are pre-filled with a silicone gel. In the past, there was concern that these implants posed unnecessary health risks. However, experts have since determined that silicone implants are just as safe as saline implants. Many women prefer silicone implants because they look and feel more like natural breast tissue. These implants contain a more cohesive silicone gel material that is less likely to leak or migrate in the event of an implant rupture. Gummy bear implants are a special type of silicone implant that offer a particularly natural-feeling result.
Breast Implant Sizes and Shapes
Aside from choosing the implant material, you will also need to select the implant profile, shape, texture, and size. 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 Plus
- Ultra High
Breast implants are also available in round and tear-drop shapes. Round implants offer a fuller overall shape, while tear-drop implants maintain the natural curvature of the breasts. Patients can also choose between smooth or textured implants, smooth implants often feel more like natural breast tissue. Finally, with Dr Robles' help you will decide on the the size and type of your breast implants.
