Silicone implants most closely replicate the feeling and appearance of natural breast tissue, and are the preferred option for most women. Since the FDA’s renewed approval of silicone gel breast implants in 2006, their popularity has continued to rise. The latest version of these implants, approved after a decade of research and clinical trials, is made of a cohesive silicone gel that represents a significant improvement. It holds its shape even when punctured or torn, decreasing the risk of silicone leakage or migration. It is possible to replace saline implants with silicone. Silicone implants are approved by the FDA for use in patients over the age of 22.
Made of a silicone outer shell, saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution that is easily absorbed by the body should an implant rupture occur. Saline breast implants are filled after placement, making it possible for your surgeon to make a smaller incision and reduce visible scarring. Saline breast implants are approved by the FDA for use in women over 18.
At your initial consultation, your Long Island Plastic Surgical Group surgeon will discuss with you in detail the benefits of each type of breast implant to help you determine which is best suited to your needs. At this time, you will also have the ability to “preview” your post-surgery results with our Vectra 3D imaging technology. A digital image of the breasts is combined with medical data to present a picture of what you may look like after breast augmentation. The image can be adjusted with a variety of breast implant sizes and shapes to reflect how different proportions may look on you. Although no technology can claim to predict the future with 100 percent accuracy, the Vectra system can give you a general idea of the potential results.
