Breast Augmentation in Beverly Hills with Saline Breast Implants

ImplantsAt Rodeo Drive Plastic Surgery, we perform breast augmentation with saline implants on most patients. Saline implants have the advantages of a shorter scar than silicone implants, fewer problems in the unlikely event of implant rupture or leakage, and some people feel they have a lower rate of capsular contracture. Saline implants are government approved by the FDA. During your consultation at our Los Angeles plastic surgery center, your plastic surgeon will be able to answer your questions and provide more information about saline breast implants.

Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, surface textures, and sizes. Depending on the desired shape you wish to achieve, you and your plastic surgeon may choose a round or contoured breast implant shape. Generally, the larger you want your cup size, the larger the breast implant the plastic surgeon will consider (measured in cubic centimeters, or cc’s). All currently available saline breast implants have a self sealing (diaphragm) valve that is used for filling the device. Depending on the style, the filling valve may be located on the front (anterior) or the back (posterior) of the breast implant.

You should be aware that contoured breast implants that are placed submuscularly (under your chest muscle) may assume a round shape after implantation. Your plastic surgeon will also evaluate your existing tissue to determine if you have enough to cover the breast implant. If you desire a breast implant size too large for your tissue, your plastic surgeon may warn you that breast implant edges may be apparent or visible post-operatively. You may even risk surgical complications. Also, excessively large breast implants may speed up the effects of gravity and result in earlier droop or sag.
