Breast Implants — Augmentation Options Houston
When it comes to women seeking to enhance their breasts, everyone has their own unique set of goals and preferences. Dr. Michael Ciaravino is a board-certified plastic surgeon who listens to his patients and understands how to give them exactly what they want and need in a breast augmentation.
When considering materials for various breast implants, it’s critical to know there are two main types of prosthesis that are FDA approved: silicone and saline.
Saline-filled breast implants are composed of sterile salt water, which can be altered by varying the amount of saline that goes into it. The shape and firmness of the breast will be affected to various degrees depending on how much saline is injected. Saline implants are generally considered the safer option and are available to women over the age of 18.
Silicone-filled breast implants consist of an elastic gel. The gel reportedly mimics natural breast tissue more realistically and is only available to women over the age of 22.
