Breast Augmentation Raleigh North Carolina: Natural Looking Results from Breast Augentation Surgery with Saline or Silicone Implants Silicone Gel Implants are now available. Raleigh Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Law compares Silicone Implants to saline Implants for natural looking breast enhancement surgery.

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) July 14, 2008 -- looking results from breast augmentation surgery with saline or silicone implants silicone gel implants are now available. Raleigh Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Law compares silicone implants to saline implants for natural looking breast enhancement surgery.

"The return of silicone gel breast implants raises an important question for prospective breast augmentation patients: are silicone gel implants better than saline implants? The answer, in my opinion," says Dr. Michael Law, "will be different for each patient, and will depend on the patient's personal feelings and opinions about a host of issues related to silicone gel implants, including implant cost, the monitoring required to detect silicone gel implant rupture, the incisions required, and the potential need to replace the implants (as in buy a new pair) if a re-operation is required for capsular contracture or other issues. Additional factors that will impact a patient's choice of implant include the pre-operative breast size and the desired post-operative breast volume and whether or not a patient will be getting a breast lift."

Dr. Law has a conservative philosophy about plastic surgery and believes that great plastic surgery looks natural. As silicone gel implants are pre-filled, they require a larger incision for implant insertion, which of course varies with the size of the implant that is used. Saline implants are filled after insertion, and can therefore be rolled into a long, narrow shape for insertion through a smaller incision. A patient with a small areolar diameter may not be a good candidate for silicone gel implant insertion through a peri-areolar incision, while essentially any patient may have a saline implant inserted through that approach.

Most surgeons agree that silicone gel breast implants, in general, tend to feel more natural than saline breast implants. However, the degree to which this difference is significant varies a great deal with regard to two issues: the amount of breast tissue that exists prior to augmentation, and the size of the implant that is used. The more natural feel of a silicone gel implant will be much more important to patients who are slender and fit in an A cup bra preoperatively, as they have less subcutaneous soft tissue to conceal the implant. The difference will be less noticeable to a patient who is more full-figured and has wears a B cup bra.

"Smaller saline implants, in my opinion, better simulate natural breast tissue than larger implants. If the goal of breast augmentation surgery is to produce a natural-appearing breast profile, and by 'natural-appearing' I mean that it matches the rest of a woman's figure and does not look like surgery, I think that most patients are best served by an implant smaller than 350cc in volume," says Dr. Michael Law. "Saline or silicone implants in a somewhat smaller size range, in my experience, tend to produce results that not only look natural but also feel natural."
