BA and Implant Safety

Thank you for your questions. Both types are safe, but there are some key differences between the two that can be discussed with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. It is best to see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can in person examine you, take key measurements and go over with you your specific aesthetic goals. In your meeting should be a review and discussion about incision location, implant placement, implant size, type and shape, and recovery period. It is best to see and feel in person the different sizes, shapes and textures of the various implants during a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best of luck.

What kind of impants for professional wrestling?

Thank you for your question. Both saline and silicone Gel breast implants have been widely studied  and have been found to be safe, as well as durable. 

In my practice, the type (saline versus silicone gel) of breast implant utilized is individualized mainly depending on the patient's starting anatomy and goals.  The type of implant used may determine the final outcome, especially if the patient does not have significant covering breast or adipose tissue. For example, some surgeons feel that silicone implants have a more natural look and feel than saline implants because silicone gel has a texture that is similar to breast tissue. In other words, if a patient has very low body fat and/or very little breast tissue, the silicone gel implants may provide a more "natural" result.

In regards to discussing breast size, communication with your surgeon is critical in achieving the results you wish. I find that this is best done with the use of pictures as opposed to trying to predeterming specific implant size or profile.

Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering breast augmentation surgery ( regarding breast implant size/profile selection) is:

1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. ***Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work.

2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals. 

In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. For example, I have found that the use of words such as “natural” or "C or D cup" etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful.

Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on him who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. Again, the use of computer imaging has been very helpful during the communication process, in our practice.

3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your plastic surgeon to use his/her years of experience/judgment to choose the breast implant size/profile that will best meet your goals. Again, in my practice, this decision is usually made during surgery, after the use of temporary intraoperative sizers.

I hope this (and the attached link, dedicated to breast augmentation surgery concerns) helps. Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.

Which breast implant?

Thanks for this interesting question. All breast implants in the USA are safe, effective and FDA approved so you have lots of choices. The lowest rupture rate with breast implants reported occurs with form stable breast implants - MemoryShape. Breast implants are more likely to rupture with saline and silicone round is in between. I suggest you have a long discussion with your plastic surgeon about your job and the potential for trauma to your breast implants. Best, Dr. ALDO
