There are two implant types to consider for any Atlanta breast augmentation procedure:

Silicone Gel Breast Implants – Atlanta, Georgia

Silicone gel implants have a more natural feel. The newest generation of silicone gel implants has a thicker shell and a more cohesive gel, making this generation of implants the safest yet. The risk of rupture is now as low as 1% in the first 6 years. Silicone gel implants are:

  • FDA approved
  • Filled with silicone gel to a set volume
  • Designed to have a uniform shape and offer the feel of natural breast tissue
  • Available with different projection options to suit every body type
  • Generally more expensive than saline-filled implants

Saline-Filled Breast Implants – Atlanta, Georgia

Saline-filled implants require a smaller incision and are less expensive. The risk of deflation is 3% in the first 3 years and 10% in the first 10 years. Deflation poses no medical risk since they are filled with saline fluid, the same saline fluid that is used in an IV. Deflation is easily detected and does not require an expensive MRI for diagnosis. Saline-filled implants are:

  • FDA approved
  • Filled with a saltwater solution by the surgeon to achieve just the right size
  • Saline, similar to natural body fluids, offers a firmer feel than silicone
  • Available with different projection options to suit every body type
  • Generally less expensive than silicone gel implants

Both implant types come with a manufacturer’s warranty for rupture or deflation. If an implant ruptures or deflates within the first ten years, the manufacturer will replace the implant for free and contribute money towards the cost of exchanging the implant. After ten years, the manufacturer will replace the implant for free.

If you are concerned about the safety of breast implants, rest assured: Breast implants are now the most-studied medical device in human history.
