Customizing Your Breast Augmentation

Breast Implants Scottsdale

Breast Implants ScottsdaleBoth silicone and saline breast implants are available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and textures. Dr. Steven Wiener believes it is extremely important that his patients fully understand all of their options so that they can make confident decisions regarding their breast implants before undergoing breast augmentation at his Scottsdale, Arizona office. If you are interested in enhancing your bust line, Dr. Wiener would be glad to explain the various breast implant options that are available to you. Please contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation.

Breast Implant Sizes

Breast implants are available in a wide range of sizes, from small (125cc) to very large (1,200cc). Women seeking a perkier, more youthful breast contour generally select more conservative implant sizes. On the other hand, women who desire more voluptuous breasts achieve their goal with larger implants.

Breast Implant Shapes

Breast implants can be either round or teardrop-shaped. Round breast implants provide the greatest amount of lift and cleavage enhancement. Many women, however, prefer the more natural appearance created by teardrop-shaped implants. Breast implants can shift after placement, and although a round implant would not affect the breast shape in the event of slippage, a teardrop-shaped implant could cause distortion under these circumstances. Your body type, existing breast tissue, and the contour you wish to achieve are all factors to consider when determining the shape of your breast implant. Contact our Scottsdale, Arizona office today to learn more.

Breast Implant Textures

Patients can select implants with either a smooth surface or a textured surface similar to sandpaper. Textured implants are more resistant to shifting, but are also more prone to leakage and rippling. Textured implants also generally cost more than smooth-surface implants, and can have a shorter lifespan. Dr. Wiener can help you determine which kind of implant will help you get the most satisfaction from your breast augmentation procedure.

Silicone versus Saline

Implants may be filled with either saline solution or silicone gel. Saline implants are available to patients 18 and over. Some women believe these implants tend to feel less natural than silicone implants. However, in the event of a ruptured implant, the leaking saline is simply absorbed into the body without posing any health risks. If this occurs, the implant shell is removed and usually replaced at the same time.

Many women find that silicone implants, which are available to patients aged 22 and older, feel more natural. However, in the event of rupture, leakage is less noticeable, and breast pain can occur as a result. To detect any signs of rupture, the Food and Drug Administration recommends that women who have had silicone breast implants for at least three years undergo MRI scans every two years.
