Augmentation mammoplasty can make your chest fuller and bigger, fill out uneven areas, enhance aesthetics, as well as be instrumental for reconstructive surgery. There are a few options to choose from when selecting the right implant for you and your lifestyle. Our Nashville, TN, plastic surgeon explains more here. 

Silicone vs. Saline Implants

The two basic augmentation implant fillings are saline and silicone. Saline implants are silicone shells filled with a saline solution (sterile salt water). Silicone implants are silicone shells filled with silicone gel. The differences in these implants are in the way they feel and function in the breast. Silicone is commonly chosen because it feels more like a real breast. This choice depends on your aesthetic goals and the size of the implant you desire.

Smooth vs. Textured Implant Shells

Another difference is in the shell itself: smooth vs. textured. This choice will depend on your preferences, as well as your specific anatomy and lifestyle. Some patients who get smooth-surface implants find that they feel softer and closer to the real thing. However, they can shift out of place easier, especially if you are an active person. A textured capsule grips more and has less of a tendency to shift. Our surgeon will help determine which choice fits best with your goals. 

Risks & Maintenance

Implants do carry some risks, such as pain, scarring, and rupture of the implant. If you notice any side effects after your procedure, contact our surgeon with your concerns. After your successful procedure, your implants will require some maintenance over the years as the area of augmentation changes. Additionally, imaging tests may be recommended every few years to ensure that they haven’t ruptured.

Overall, implants can boost your confidence and could be a great choice for your body goals. Our experienced, caring esthetic surgeon can guide you as you start this journey.
