If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or position of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for a breast augmentation. Many women experience changes and sagging in their breasts as they age or as a result of weight loss or childbirth. Candidates for a Breast Augmentation procedure are over 18 or 22, depending on the type of implants they desire and have realistic expectations for their results.
SALINE IMPLANTSSaline implants typically require the smallest incision under the breast, near the armpit, or through the navel. Saline implants are filled with saline (salt water) after insertion. These type of implants are usually less expensive than silicone and can sometimes ripple, deflate, or leak, requiring immediate attention.SILICONE IMPLANTS Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel and offer a more natural look and feel than saline implants. They are generally less likely to ripple than saline filled implants. Should a rupture occur, the gel will not leak into the body and is typically not noticeable.Dr. Nima can discuss with patients their desired outcome to determine which procedure is best for them.
