Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States. It is a procedure that helps to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. There are two main types of breast implants used for breast augmentation: silicone and saline. Dr. Marcos Gonazlez offers silicone breast augmentation to patients in El Paso, TX and surrounding areas.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. This procedure can be done to improve the balance of breast size, restore breast volume and shape, and/or improve symmetry. During the procedure, breast implants are inserted either above or beneath the pectoral muscle in the chest. The implants can be filled with either saline or silicone, with both types having their own unique advantages.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone breast implants are made of a silicone shell filled with silicone gel. This type of implant is often preferred by women because it provides a more natural look and feel. Silicone breast implants also tend to look and feel more natural as they move with the body.
The silicone gel used in these implants is safe and has been studied extensively. The FDA has determined that silicone implants are safe for use when used for breast augmentation.
How Long Do Silicone Breast Implants Last?
Silicone breast implants are made to last for many years, but their exact lifespan depends on a variety of factors. Generally speaking, silicone implants can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years. However, some women have reported that their implants have lasted much longer.
The lifespan of silicone implants also depends on the quality of the implant itself. Quality implants are made with higher-grade materials that are less likely to break down over time, which means they can last longer. Additionally, the way that you take care of your body and implants can affect the longevity of the implants.
It’s important to note that silicone implants will need to be replaced at some point. Over time, the implant may become misshapen or rupture. If this happens, you may need to have the implant replaced to restore the shape and size of your breasts.
Are Silicone Breast Implants Right For Me?
If you’re considering breast augmentation, it’s important to understand the pros and cons of each type of implant. Silicone implants are a popular choice for many women because they offer a more natural look and feel. However, it’s important to weigh the risks and benefits of both saline and silicone implants before making a decision.
It’s also important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of breast augmentation surgery. Your doctor can help you determine if silicone breast implants are right for you based on your body type, lifestyle, and desired results. Silicone implants are generally safe and long-lasting, and they can provide a more natural look and feel than saline implants. However, it’s important to talk to your doctor to ensure that silicone implants are right for you and your unique needs.
