Every so often, women visit our Sacramento plastic surgery practice for the first time to learn more about breast augmentation — from new mothers who would like to improve the appearance of their sagging breasts following childbirth to ladies who have felt that their breasts are too small and have wished for a long time for a much fuller figure.

If you’ve been contemplating on having breast augmentation for a while now, you should know that you need to make a couple of decisions — from implant type to implant size to planning for your recovery. Here at our practice, Dr. Semlacher and the rest of the team will help you come up with an informed decision concerning your breast augmentation procedure.

Choosing Between Saline and Silicone Implants

During your personal consultation with Dr. Semlacher, he will ask you about your cosmetic goals and preferences. Furthermore, options will be discussed in detail. One of the things that you need to carefully consider is implant type — saline vs. silicone.

It should be noted that both implants are safe and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for breast augmentation and reconstruction following mastectomy (removal of one or both breasts to prevent or stop the spread of cancer cells). Also, both implants are actually made of an outer silicone shell and the difference lies in the filling. In addition both implants can significantly improve the size and shape of your breasts and have their own share of pros and cons. This is where we will help you weight such advantages and disadvantages in accordance to your surgery goals, preferences, body proportion, and lifestyle.

Our next post will take a look on the detailed differences between the two!
