Implant Type

During your surgical consultation, one of the decisions made is the type of implant used for your surgery. There are two main types of breast implants: saline implants and silicone implants. From there, the texture of the implant is decided. The main choices are a smooth implant or a textured implant.

Saline implants are made with a sterile saline filling and are FDA approved for people 18 years and older. If something punctures the implant, your body absorbs the saline and naturally disposes of it.

On the other hand, silicone implants are made of a silicone gel and are FDA approved for people 22 years and older. If the implant is punctured, the gel holds it into place, meaning it may not be obvious there’s a puncture. To counteract this, you’ll have regular visits with your plastic surgeon.

Implant Placement

Additionally, during your consultation, you’ll go over the placement of the breast implant. Implants can go under your pectoral muscle or above the pectoral muscle. Most of the time, the type of implant you choose determines the implant placement.

Combination Surgery

Finally, you’ll want to decide if you’re having breast implant surgery as it is or as a combination with a breast lift. Breast implants will only add volume to your breasts but won’t improve the placement of your breasts. If you want more youthful looking breasts, a combination of breast implants and a lift will work.

Are Breast Implants Safe?

When it comes to plastic surgery, breast implants are a safe procedure to get. However, like with all surgeries, there is always a risk of side effects and things that can happen following surgery. That’s why it’s so crucial to always follow all post-operative instructions once you’ve had your surgery.

In some cases, breast implants can affect your health. Read more about it from the American Society of Plastic Surgery, of which Dr. Martin is a member.
