Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS uses FDA approved saline filled breast implants or silicone breast implants when performing breast augmentation plastic surgery. The NYC Breast Implants Plastic Surgeon will personally discuss with you which type of breast implant – silicone breast implants or saline breast implants – would be right for you (during your free breast augmentation plastic surgery consultation).
During your complimentary breast implants consultation with the NYC plastic surgeon you will discuss the placement of your breast implants (above or below the muscle), type of breast implants (saline or silicone), breast implants size, and breast implants shapes. You will be able to see and hold the varying shapes and sizes. The NYC Plastic Surgeon will also show you digital images of how you will look with varying shape and size breast implants.
Your breast augmentation with breast implants plastic surgery will be performed at the Board Certified Plastic Surgeon’s fully accredited NYC outpatient surgical facility; under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation or under general anesthesia.
Once your NYC Breast Augmentation plastic surgeon, Dr. Senderoff MD, FACS, completes your breast implant surgery, you will be fitted with a support bra and a light dressing. You may be prescribed pain killers to take after your breast implants surgery. You can expect to be back on your feet a few days following surgery and but your will not be able to jump right back into your full routine such as heavy exercise for a few weeks. Breast implants plastic surgery is often combined with a “breast lift”. Breast lift surgery if performed when you have visually “sagging” breasts.
TYPES OF BREAST IMPLANTS: SILICONE VS SALINE
Breast implants come in two categories: saline breast implants or silicone breast implants. Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, most commonly either round or contoured. You can discuss which breast implant is best for you during your complimentary consultation with the NYC Plastic Surgeon. The surface of the breast implant can vary as well, being either smooth or textured. While those breast implants with a textured surface were designed to reduce the risk of capsular contracture, there is little evidence to prove that this is true. Breast implants come in a variety of sizes as well. For many of the Plastic Surgeon’s breast implants candidates, the size of the breast implant, and thus the desired size of their breasts, can be the most difficult aspect of breast augmentation selection. Please note that patients must have sufficient tissue in order to accommodate a larger breast implant, otherwise the breast implant may be more “obvious” following the plastic surgery (for example the edges of the breast implants may more easily seen and felt through the skin). Additionally, breast implants that are too large for the amount of tissue may increase the risk of varying surgical complications. Excessively large breast implants may cause the breasts to prematurely droop or sag.
There are two basic types of breast implants that are used by the NYC Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgeon and these include the following:
Saline-filled breast implants are breast implants which are inserted and filled, typically through a valve, with a saline or salt-water solution (similar to the fluid which comprises most of the human body). Depending on the manufacturer the location of the valve can either be at the front or the back of the breast implant. There are also saline-filled adjustable breast implants which are relatively new to the market and allow the plastic surgeon, through an additional small connector tube, to adjust the size of the breast following surgery through a simple injection. Saline fluid can either be added or drained to increase or decrease the size of the breast, possibly for up to several months following surgery. Saline-filled adjustable implants are not offered by all surgeons and require an additional incision, and thus an additional scar.
Saline implants may have a lower rate of capsular contracture than silicone implants. If you are uncertain about the type of breast implants you want, it is best to discuss your concerns with the the Manhattan Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas Senderoff, MD, FACS.
Silicone Gel-Filled Implants. Silicone breast implants are made of silicone gel and encased in a rubber shell. In November 2006, the FDA approved silicone breast implants for use by Plastic Surgeons in the United States. Silicone breast implants had been suspected of causing systemic health problems; however, multiple studies and expert-review panels have shown that these claims were untrue. Silicone breast implants have been safely used by plastic surgeons in Europe for years, and now American patients since 2006 are taking advantage of the natural look and feel of silicone breast implants. At his NYC Plastic Surgery practice, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Douglas Senderoff offers breast augmentation surgery with both silicone breast implants and saline breast implants.
The NYC Breast Augmentation / Breast Implants Plastic Surgeon will discuss the goal of your proposed breast enlargement surgery, and go over the entire procedure with you. The following information will help you understand the operation.
Revision of Breast Implants: Because of the NYC Plastic Surgeon’s years of experience, he often corrects problems that have been associated with breast enlargement with breast implants in the past – this is called “breast implants revision surgery“.
