Breast Augmentation – Types of Implants – Pennsylvania Philadelphia

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries. Choosing to undergo breast augmentation is an exciting prospect with a lot of possibilities, but it is important to educate yourself about the procedure as much as possible in order to realistically gauge your expectations.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Ryan Hoffman and explain your goals and expectations. Depending on your specific needs and your body type, you will generally have a choice between two major types of implants—saline or silicone. Saline implants are easier to implant, as they are filled after insertion, where silicone implants are said to hold their shape more naturally and don’t pose a much of a risk of rupturing. Discuss your options with the doctor and be honest about your goals.
