There are a variety of implant types and shapes to choose from, as well as breast augmentation techniques. A reputable surgeon will spend time explaining the potential benefits and possible risks of your surgery and implant type. For some patients, fat transfer breast augmentation may be an alternate option. A breast lift may also be performed along with your breast augmentation in Las Vegas if sagging breasts due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss are a concern.
Breast Augmentation: Increase Size, Improve Shape
Breast augmentation employs the use of implants to achieve the breast size and shape you desire. There are several different implant types from which to choose:
Our Las Vegas breast augmentation using saline implants are surgically placed in the breast tissue, and then filled with sterile salt water to the size agreed upon by the doctor and patient. Because the silicone implant shell is implanted and placed prior to filling, they may require less invasive surgical incisions. Selecting saline implants may minimize the risk of scarring.
In the unlikely event of a rupture, the saline should not cause any health issues, but the implant will need to be replaced as it will deflate. Saline implants usually have a circular shape to improve protrusion of the bust.
Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel made to mimic the feel of natural breast tissue. The circular shape allows the breast augmentation to increase the size and protrusion of the breasts. Some patients feel that the look and feel of silicone implants create a more natural result.
Teardrop or anatomic implants
Anatomic implants are made of silicone, and are teardrop shaped instead of circular. Some women feel that this shape more naturally mimics their natural breast shape while providing the increase in size they desire. These are a silicone implants and vary from the traditional style only in their shape.
