Are silicone implants dangerous?
Once deemed as unsafe, silicone breast implants were reintroduced to the market with the approval of the FDA in November of 2006. Since then, silicone implants have grown in popularity and remain supported by the FDA as a safe and effective device when used as intended.
What do breast implants feel like? Will they feel real?
The way your implants feel will depend on the type of material your breast implant is composed of. Typically, silicone gel implants most closely mimic the look and feel of real breast tissue while saline will feel a bit different from silicone implants and natural breast tissue. If you want your breast augmentation to produce the most realistic feel possible, silicone is the preferred choice. During your complimentary consultation with our Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeons, you will be given the opportunity to feel the difference between silicone and saline implants.
Is it too late to have breast implants for this swimsuit season?
It is definitely not too late to show off your new look this summer. Two to three weeks after breast augmentation surgery, most patients are able to reveal their new,improved look. Please note, however, that complete healing will continue for weeks to follow.
Will others be able to tell I have had breast augmentation surgery?
The look of your new breasts will be dependent upon multiple factors such as type of implant , placement/location of implant and surgical technique. If you are going for a subtle effect, our surgeons will probably recommend using silicone implants placed under the muscle. Our cosmetic surgeons will never force you to go larger in size than you feel comfortable. For the most part, we can make your breast implants as noticeable or as subtle as you prefer.
Will I have Scars?
Wherever an incision is made, a scar will form. However we include post-op laser treatments in your procedure costs. Upon completion of laser scar treatments, most patients can no longer see any signs of the incision site.
