What are the Different Breast Implants?
Our patients have a very important decision to make before getting a breast augmentation. To get the most natural-looking result from breast augmentation Boston plastic surgeon Dr. Russo will help choose the type of implant to be used for your needs. There are two types of breast implants for breast augmentation, saline, and silicone breast implants.
Saline breast implants use sterile salt water. This is filled to fit the desired size, shape, and firmness of our patients. In cases when a saline implant leaks, the saline solution will be absorbed by the body and naturally expelled. Silicone breast implants, on the other hand, uses an elastic gel. When used for breast augmentation, it mimics the same feel and movement of a natural breast.
What Should Patients Expect After a Breast Augmentation?
Our patients who have undergone breast augmentation are usually well enough to return to work a week after the procedure, but we advise that they take things slow and regulate their activities. By this time, it is normal for our patients to feel slight discomfort and tightness in the chest area. Patients are provided with oral medication to help manage the pain. Breast augmentation patients will be asked by our Boston team to wear special garments to help stabilize the new breasts.
