BREAST IMPLANT TYPES AND SIZES
Breast implants lead the field of cosmetic surgery procedures with nearly 300000 performed in 2019. Breast augmentation is also the most commonly performed procedure by Dr. Gorin for the last 16 years.
Dr. Gorin is always happy to answer your breast implant questions! He personalizes each patients surgical approach so that results are tailored to the individual anatomy.
SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS
Silicone gel implants have a long history. Though the FDA shut down silicone implant sales in 1992 due to safety concerns over ruptured implants. However, further research led the agency to re-approve the use of these implants in 2006. Dr. Gorin uses silicone breast implants over saline due to their softness and overall natural appearing results.
COST, FEEL AND SIZE OF SILICONE IMPLANTS
Most report that silicone implants have a more natural shape, feel and look compared to saline implants. The size and shape can be adjusted to patients, meaning a wide variety is available.
Each patient is unique, so specific questions about how silicone or saline will affect the results should be asked during pre-operative consultation.
SALINE BREAST IMPLANTS
Saline implants often have more evidence of ‘rippling’ and often feel less natural than silicone implants which is why Dr. Gorin prefers silicone far more than saline.
Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
