Silikon 1000 in the breasts

  Silokon 1000 is an ideal dermal filler, and can be used everywhere for this purposes. It can be used in the breasts as noted by Dr. Burnett, but I don't think it has a place in breast augmentation.

Silikon 1000 Use In Areas Off The Face

+1

When used properly for the appropriate indications by an expert, experienced injector, Silikon 1000 is a safe and effective filler.  We use it for aging lines, acne scars, surgical scars, aging hands, the non-surgical rhinoplasty and lip augmentation.  We only use it in the breasts if there is a superficial scar that needs to be filled/corrected. We do not recommend its use for breast augmentation as that would require inappropriate amounts and inappropriate injection techniques. The proper injection technique is the serial puncture, microdroplet injection technique.  Hope this helps!
