Silicone Breast Implants
MemoryGel® and Sientra gel implants are filled with silicone gel. This gel closely resembles the look and feel of real fat, so your results will look and feel optimally natural. The gel also does not wrinkle and ripple like saline implants sometimes do. Silicone implants are pre-filled by the manufacturer to the exact volume Dr. Basner requests.
Mentor MemoryShape Breast Implants: These innovative breast implants feature a highly cohesive silicone gel, and a tapered shape and textured surface.The textured shell ensures the implant stays in a secure position, and the highly cohesive gel maintains the natural teardrop shape of the implant and feels like natural breast tissue. These implants offer you yet another choice as you customize your breast augmentation to the results you want.
Saline Breast Implants
Like silicone implants, saline implants have an outer shell made of silicone, but they are filled with saline fluid, which is a sterile salt-water solution. Saline implants have a valve through which they are filled with the fluid, so precise adjustments in volume can be made. If a saline implant tears or ruptures, the fluid is absorbed harmlessly by your body.
Choosing a Type of Breast Implant
During your cosmetic consultation with Dr. Basner, he will describe the pros and cons of each type of breast implant, incision location, size and placement, and he will provide a recommendation for which one he thinks will best meet your expectations. Ultimately he wants you to feel empowered to choose which type you prefer.
In addition to possessing outstanding credentials, Dr. Basner provides compassionate and personable care to each of his patients. Dr. Basner strives to always be available to his patients, and he is committed to providing you with the one-on-one time you deserve to learn about him, our practice, and your surgical options for enhancing your breasts.
