Silicone vs. Saline
The two primary substances in use today for filling breast implants are silicone and saline. Each option possesses a variety of benefits and drawbacks, but understanding the basic features of each can help you in choosing the right implant for your breast augmentation.
Silicone Implants are filled with a soft, cohesive, elastic gel. Filled prior to surgery, silicone implants typically require a slightly large incision during surgery, as compared to implants filled during the procedure. Many women report that silicone implants possess a much more ‘natural’ feel, and silicone is the popular choice among Dr. Tim’s patients.
Saline Implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. Although many women report that saline implants possess a less natural feel and appearance, they can be filled at the time of surgery, thereby reducing the size of the incision. The body will naturally absorb the saline solution in the case of a puncture or rupture.
Breast Implant Size and Shape
Commonly, women in Sydney choose breast implants to enhance curves and create a balanced figure. For some women, this means going significantly larger, while for others, only a slight increase is desirable. Whatever your choice of implant size, Dr. Tim will work with you to be sure that your results look natural and work with your body proportions.
Breast implants come in two shapes: round and anatomical. Round implants can give you more upper breast fullness, and possess a natural appearance. Anatomical implants mimic a teardrop shape, and commonly possess a textured shell. The textured shell helps the implant adhere to the breast tissue, potentially limiting the risk of shifting. Again, Dr. Tim will guide you through the selection process, drawing from his experience to help you achieve your goals.
These are just some of the many options you have when considering breast augmentation. Dr. Tim assists patients in every step of the procedure process, and encourages women contemplating breast augmentation to come in to his office for personalised help during a consultation.
