In Georgia, plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Crispin gives each breast reconstruction patient the personalized care that they deserve. When you meet with Dr. Crispin, you will discuss how each breast implant option can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
When you choose breast implants for your breast reconstruction, you have many options for type, size, shape, and placement. First you will need to choose your breast implant type. Depending on the look and feel you want, you can select silicone or saline breast implants.
Silicone implants are the most popular choice. They look and feel more like natural breast tissue. They have little chance of rippling under your skin. Silicone implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Saline breast implants are filled with a saltwater solution after placement. This makes them more adjustable and allows for better sizing during surgery. Saline implants, however, do not look or feel as natural as silicone implants.
Selecting your implants and making your other breast reconstruction decisions is a very personal choice. Although your breasts will never look and feel exactly like they did prior to cancer removal, you can gain a sense of restoration and femininity with your new implants.
