Natural Looking Breast Implants in New York: Saline or Silicone?

You have finally made the leap and decided to have breast augmentation. You want to have a nice, natural youthful look. One of the first choices you have to make is saline or silicone?


Saline Implants


Saline implants are made by a shell of silicone with sterile saline solution inside. The advantage is that the incision can be very small, as the shell is inserted empty and then filled after placement. They may be placed endoscopically through a naval incision to reduce the scar. This is a minimally invasive enhancement technique. However, with this technique, the implant cannot be placed under the muscle tissue of the chest. In the event, that the implant ruptures, the body naturally absorbs the saline solution. The downside is that the implant deflates and you appear lopsided.


Silicone Implants


Silicone implants are a silicone shell filled with medical-grade silicone gel. Most people who get them believe that they have a more natural look and feel than saline. The newest option is the Gummy Bear implant, named after the little gelatine candies. They are named this, because the gel is more firm than saline and has a more natural feel. The rupture rate on them is extremely low, but if it should happen, the gel stays in place, but will have to be removed and replaced. Their great advantages over any other implants far outweigh the remote possibility of failure. The Gummy Bear implants have been a huge success and Dr. Fiorillo is an expert in how they are placed. He has been a leader in the surgical procedure, appointed by their manufacturer to train other surgeons in proper placement.
