Breast Augmentation Surgery: What to Expect

How can you get the best results from your breast augmentation? Before going under the knife you should know what to expect before, during, and after surgery. Your board-certified plastic surgeon will answer any questions you have about the procedure, recovery, and your implants, such as what  maintenance is required for saline-filled implants vs silicone gel implants (often referred to as simply “silicone breast implants”). Read below for Dr. Scott Greenberg’s explanation of what to expect during your pre-surgery consultation.

Breast Augmentation Consultation With Dr. Scott Greenberg

You will be faced with several choices before your breast augmentation and it is important to make decisions based not only on how you will look, but also how much maintenance your choices require, and how your choices affect your peace of mind. For example, the FDA recommends women with silicone gel implants (“silicone breast implants”) get an MRI every few years to check for a “silent rupture.” This cost is typically not covered by insurance companies. Some women feel uncomfortable with the fact that their implant may have ruptured without their knowledge. Be sure to talk through these types of concerns with your surgeon before moving forward with the procedure.

Dr. Greenberg explains what to expect during your initial consultation:

“We will review the procedure in quite some detail. We’ll talk about the types of incisions, different types of implants that are available, as well as whether or not to put the implant above or below the muscle. We’ll also review the pre-operative process, as well as recovery and your expected downtime. Our discussion will be followed by a physical examination where I’ll make a recommendation as to the best technique to give you the best result possible.”

How “Gummy Bear” Breast Implants Compare to IDEAL IMPLANT

If you’re researching breast implant types, you may be wondering how the different types compare. When you visit a plastic surgeon you will most likely face the choice between saline implants, silicone gel implants, and the IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants. Be aware that when women refer to “silicone breast implants” they are referring to silicone gel implants, or “gummy bear” breast implants, which are filled with silicone gel. All implants have a silicone shell, but what the breast implant is filled with–silicone gel or saline–will determine what comes into contact with your breast tissue in case of a rupture.

The Downside of “Gummy Bear” Breast Implants or Silicone Breast Implants

Women typically pick silicone gel breast implants because they have a more natural feel and do not ripple like saline implants. But often women who have these implants are not aware of the downsides to them. These include:

  • Silent Ruptures: When a silicone-gel breast implant ruptures it is not possible to tell there is a leak without an MRI scan. This is why it is called a “silent rupture.” The silicone-gel may start leaking into surrounding breast tissue and need to be removed.
  • Repeated MRIs: To detect a silent rupture the FDA recommends women with “gummy bear” breast implants get an MRI every two years for life. These MRIs are expensive and typically not covered by insurance companies.
  • Price Difference: While prices and insurance coverage may vary, you should factor in the cost of an MRI every two years.

The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant

The IDEAL IMPLANT combines what women love about saline implants and silicone breast implants. This new technology gives women the peace of mind that a rupture will be immediately evident by just looking at the breast, and the saline inside is safely absorbed by the body. The internal structure ensures the implant keeps its beautiful, natural shape and does not ripple. After years of choosing between the beauty of silicone gel breast implants and peace of mind of saline breast implants, women can now have the best of both worlds.
