Breast Lift and Breast Implants
When you research breast implants, you run into a variety of different procedures, such as a breast lift, and different kinds of implants. It can all be a very confusing.
So What’s the Difference?
Implants change the volume of your breasts. They are inserted through an incision and placed under your breast tissue or muscle. In the past, implants came in two types: saline-filled and silicone gel-filled. Women feel saline is safer because its contents (salt water) can be safely absorbed into the body in case of rupture, which can be detected by looking in a mirror. However, silicone gel has a more natural look and feel than the traditional saline implant. But they rupture frequently, require costly MRIs to detect the rupture, and your body won’t absorb silicone gel, so it has to be removed from body tissues.
The New York Group for Plastic Surgery is one of the only places to receive the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant which women are saying is the best of both worlds. It has an internal structure filled with only saline, which gives you both a natural look and feel, and the peace of mind of only saline inside.
A breast lift is a procedure to change the shape of your breasts. During this process, excess skin is removed, and breast tissue is reshaped to restore firmness and raise the breasts. You might choose this if your breasts sag or your nipples point downward. Lifts and implants are frequently done together.
