Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are gel-filled shells that provide a natural look and feel. The natural-appearing outcome is one of the biggest advantages in selecting silicone breast implants. They have a lower rate of rippling, which, therefore, can be placed above the muscle without fear of losing aesthetics. A silicone implant is also lighter in weight.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with a saline or sterile saltwater solution, which can be placed empty and filled during the procedure. The size of a saline implant can be altered or customized easier. Also, in the case of a rupture, a saline breast implant will immediately deflate and be absorbed by the body without harm. Additionally, some women choose saline implants because they are commonly cheaper than silicone.

Fat Transfer

A fat transfer is a procedure where a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Sabbagh, uses liposuction techniques to remove and purify your unwanted fat to add volume to your breasts. Commonly, fat is removed from the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. Also called natural breast augmentation, this procedure is beneficial for those who want to slim or contour one area of their body, while still enhancing the size of their breasts. With this procedure, you’ll see maybe a one to two cup size increase. Still can’t decide which breast enhancement option is right for you? Contact the Straith Clinic in Bingham Farms, MI, to schedule your complimentary consultation with Dr. William Sabbagh.
