Choosing the Right Implant in Kansas City

No more sagging, small breasts. You have decided to have breast augmentation to improve your breasts’ appearance and your body contour. After careful consideration, you have chosen to use implants. But now you need to decide on which implant to use. Who knew there were so many choices?

The board-certified plastic surgeons at Associated Plastic Surgeons know that every woman is different. They will discuss your options for treatment and help you with choosing the right implant in Kansas City.

Breast Implant Options

There are two main types of implants available. Of course, each comes in a variety of sizes. Each also has its pros and cons. Before you try to pick out your implant you need to be clear as to what your goals are. Consider writing down words that you want to use when describing your breasts.

Saline Implants

Saline implants have a silicone shell, but the inside is filled with saline. Saline implants are an option for women who want less silicone in their implants and like the idea of using salt water instead. Saline implants will deflate if they leak because your body will absorb the saline. They might also ripple more.

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants start with a silicone outer shell and are then filled with a thick silicone gel. The texture and feel of the implant are quite life-like. The outer surface of these implants is smooth.

The newest generation of silicone implants are sometimes called the Gummy Bear. It is a silicone implant but has major improvements over the traditional one. The silicone gel inside the implant has been upgraded so that it will retain its shape better. This new gel is also much less likely to ooze out any hole in the outer shell if you experience a leak, tear, or rupture.

The size of your implant will depend on your aesthetic goals and whether there are any other procedures being done. A breast lift, done at the same time as the implant, can decrease the size of the implant you will require. Our skilled Kansas City plastic surgeons know how to balance everything out, so they will help you decide the exact size of implant you need.
