“I talked to several women who had implants. It came down to one lady who showed me her ‘scars.’ She had to point them out to me because they were almost invisible. She spoke highly of Dr. Park and I was sold. Everyone in the office is super nice and professional.. made me very comfortable. Now a year later . . . I am still so happy I chose Dr. Park for my lift and implants. I love the shape and how natural they feel and look. I will definitely see Dr. Park for any future procedures!” — Review from RealSelf
How to Choose Which Implant Type is Best for You
If you are researching breast implants, allow us to dive into a summary of the different types of implants offered and the benefits and compromises of each:
- Silicone Gel: These implants come in a shell that is filled with silicone gel. It mimics the feel and look of fatty tissue, providing a natural look and feel.
- “Gummy Bear” Breast Implants: This type of implant is made up of a highly cohesive silicone gel. Nicknamed the “gummy bear” implant because it is firm and holds its shape, similar to that of an actual gummy bear that you eat.
- IDEAL IMPLANT: This type of breast implant provides a youthful shape to the breast that conforms to the natural curve of an individual’s chest wall. IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured breast implant and is FDA approved. The saline that sits between two chambers, gives the breast a natural look and feel, while reducing the chance of folding and wrinkling. A benefit in choosing the IDEAL IMPLANT for many patients is that in the unlikely event of a rupture, a woman can notice immediately by looking in the mirror that the implant has ruptured. It does not require an MRI, like a silicone gel implant may require. Dr. Park is pleased to offer the IDEAL IMPLANT and the promising and successful results that it produces for his patients.
