What type of implant should I choose?

woman breast with drops close up Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX is a plastic surgeon who is available to help women in looking and feeling their best. This sometimes means adding breast implants to increase chest size. Women with smaller breasts may find themselves feeling self-conscious and less feminine than those with larger breasts. Breast implants are used during a surgical procedure known as “breast augmentation” to add volume and size to the breasts.

What type of breast implant should I choose?

If you’re considering breast implants, you may be wondering which type is right for you. There are two primary types of implants, including saline and silicone. Both have their own pros and cons, so it’s important to do your research before making a decision.

  • Saline. Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. They are less expensive than silicone implants, but they can sometimes look and feel less natural. In addition, if the implant ruptures, the salt water can leak, though this is not as serious of a concern.
  • Silicone. Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. They tend to look and feel more natural when compared to saline implants, but they’re also more expensive. In addition, if the implant ruptures, the gel can leak into your body. These are some factors to take into consideration when making a choice for your breast implant.

Both types of implants are available at the practice of Dr. Thomas Wiener, and with his help, you can make an educated decision regarding the type of implant best suited for your unique needs. He can also assist with choosing the right size of implant to help you reach your goals, ensuring that the size of your breasts after augmentation matches your body frame, shape, and size for natural results.
