Breast Augmentation in NJ: Which Breast Implant Type to Choose

Breast Augmentation With Implants

You’ve made an important decision on the journey to a more beautiful you when choosing to have a breast augmentation in NJ. Now you’re facing the next, and perhaps the most critical decision; what breast implant is the right one for me?
In the past, options concerning composition and shape have been limited. Now, candidates have a more extensive menu from which to choose.

Below are three popular types. NJ breast augmentation surgeons have delivered excellent outcomes using all three implant styles we’re going to discuss. As you read, keep in mind your individual needs and expected results. Ultimately, your plastic surgeon will help you to make an informed and educated decision.

Saline Breast Implants: While considered the most popular among breast augmentation patients, this type is known to be the most affordable and often preferred for young women. They are composed of a flexible silicone shell and filled with sterile salt water. They are FDA approved for surgical candidates who are 18+. To ensure a realistic-looking effect with this implant style, optimal tissue coverage is ideal. While saline breast implants are designed for long-lasting enhancement, the candidate should be aware that over time, there is potential for leakage. A perceived benefit of this implant in the case of rupture is that saline is absorbed and naturally eliminated by the body.

Silicone cohesive gel Implants: Even before placed inside the breast, NJ breast augmentation patients find silicone implants to feel the most realistic. In general, they are one of the most sought-after modern implant choices. Because their cohesive gel composition is more viscous than saline, they hold a natural breast shape and feel, as well as resisting rippling. Their contents are designed to stay together in the rare event of a rupture. However ongoing breast exams and monitoring will be advised.

Gummy Bear Implants: This term and type of implant gained considerable recognition and popularity in the last decade. This style derives its name from its contents- a densely cohesive silicone filling. Its texture is similar to that of a gummy bear, hence the nickname. The unique, “teardrop shape” means it shares an anatomical likeness to an actual breast; the top is thinner and the bottom, fuller. The firmness of anatomical implants helps them to hold their shape, and their surface is textured to further secure them once in the body.

While any of the styles mentioned above can offer excellent results, one of the most significant factors to consider is the experience and expertise of the specialist who will be performing your procedure. We highly recommend that you seek out a board-certified surgeon who has a proven track record for producing satisfying results.
