Breast augmentation is one of the leading cosmetic surgeries performed in the nation. However, many options are available for the type of breast augmentation one undergoes. With all of these choices, it can be challenging to determine which type of procedure is best for you. Although the type of implants and surgery varies depending on a patient’s needs and physical makeup, one kind of breast augmentation is requested above the others.
The most requested breast augmentation procedure is silicone breast implants. Due to the implant’s gel interior, they look and feel more natural than saline implants. Additionally, implants have a more extensive size variety than breast augmentation through fat transfer. Silicone implants tend to have better longevity than saline. However, a new type of implant is quickly becoming popular among patients. Gummy bear implants are silicone implants with a dense silicone interior that look more natural and have less risk of leakage or rupture due to the consistency of the implant.
Depending on your needs and circumstances, the right procedure can vary. Dr. Goldschmidt can help patients find the best breast augmentation option during a consultation.
