Saline breast implants are composed of a silicone outer shell containing a saline (salt-water) solution. They are highly effective options for breast augmentation procedures including patients who need a revisional breast surgery as well as women who are younger than 22 years of age. Saline implants can help you achieve fuller breasts with a natural appearance. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and remain a very popular option with patients considering breast enhancement to add volume to the breasts.
There are advantages and disadvantages to each type of breast implant, and the best choice for one patient may not be the best choice for another. Every patient is unique, and that’s why Dr. Mills’ breast augmentation procedures are custom-tailored to each individual’s particular body type and their ultimate goals.
At your initial consultation, Dr. Mills will speak with you in detail about all types, sizes, and shapes of breast implants. At this meeting, you and Dr. Mills will decide which type of breast implant will best meet your needs.
Dr. Dan Mills was part of a small group of plastic surgeons chosen to participate in clinical trials of cohesive gel (gummy bear) breast implants, which have recently been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. These types of implants, known as Natrelle® 410 Cohesive Gel Implants, have been available in Europe for many years, and have achieved great success. With the new FDA approval, they are now readily available in the United States. Dr. Mills will talk with you about all of your options during your initial consultation, and determine if the 410 Cohesive gel implant is right for your needs.
