When patients elect to have breast augmentation surgery, they have additional choices to make. Aside from choosing and communicating the size and shape of their desired breasts, patients must also choose the type of implant. Patients have two choices: silicone or saline. Aside from a period during which the FDA was holding studies to confirm the safety of silicone implants, the silicone material in implants have been found to be entirely safe. In fact, the latest generation of silicone implants contains a special substance which does not leak under any circumstance. Rather, like a gumdrop, the material is malleable and natural-feeling. Saline implants are available in round and teardrop shapes, allowing Dr. Oldham to not only augment the breast size, but also enhance the shape of the breast according to your desire. In the end, your desired results will serve as a guide to help you and Dr. Oldham discuss which implants are right for your unique case.
