Saline Implants

At Gartner Plastic Surgery we offer a range of advanced breast augmentation options, including the trusted and versatile choice of saline implants. If you are considering enhancing your breasts with a safe and customizable solution, saline implants may be the ideal option for you. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the benefits, considerations, and frequently asked questions about saline implants, empowering you to make an informed decision on your breast augmentation journey.

Saline implants NJ are a type of breast implant filled with a sterile saline solution. These implants consist of a silicone outer shell that is inserted into the breast pocket and then filled with the saline solution to achieve the desired size and shape. Saline implants have been used for many years and are a popular choice for women seeking breast augmentation.

What is the Difference Between a Saline Implant and Silicone Implant?

Saline and silicone implants are the two main types of breast implants used in breast augmentation. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and tend to have a firmer feel compared to silicone implants. They are known for their rapid deflation and easy detection in the event of a rupture. 

On the other hand, silicone implants are filled with a cohesive silicone gel that closely resembles natural breast tissue. They provide a soft and natural feel, often resulting in a more natural-looking appearance. Silicone implants retain their shape even if ruptured, and detection may require medical imaging. 

The choice between saline and silicone implants depends on individual preferences, desired aesthetics, and factors discussed with Dr. Gartner.

Things To Consider with Saline Implants

  • Potential for Rippling: Saline implants have a slightly higher risk of visible rippling compared to silicone implants, especially for women with thin breast tissue. However, the placement of the implant beneath the chest muscle or using a suitable size and profile can help minimize this risk. Dr. Gartner will carefully evaluate your unique characteristics and recommend the best approach to minimize potential rippling.
  • Feel and Consistency: While saline implants NJ can provide a natural look and feel, they may feel slightly firmer than silicone implants. This difference in consistency is due to the fluid nature of the saline solution. However, many women find that the difference is subtle and not noticeable in everyday life.
  • Monitoring and Follow-up: Regular monitoring and follow-up appointments are essential to ensure the ongoing health and well-being of your saline implants. Dr. Gartner will provide you with specific instructions on how to care for your implants and when to schedule follow-up visits. These appointments will allow Dr. Gartner to assess the condition of your implants, address any concerns, and ensure their long-term success.

The Benefits of Saline Implants

  • Customizable Volume: One of the significant advantages of saline implants NJ is their customizable volume. During the surgery, Dr. Gartner can adjust the volume of the saline solution to achieve the desired size and symmetry. This flexibility allows for precise customization to meet your unique aesthetic goals and body proportions.
  • Natural Look and Feel: While silicone implants are known for their natural feel, saline implants can also provide a natural look and feel when properly placed. The saline solution mimics the fluidity of natural breast tissue, resulting in a softer and more natural appearance.
  • Safety: Saline implants are considered safe and have a long history of use in breast augmentation surgeries. In the unlikely event of a rupture, the saline solution is harmlessly absorbed by the body. This makes it easy to detect a rupture as the implant deflates, providing immediate visual confirmation and allowing for prompt medical attention.
  • Surgical Incision Options: Saline implants can be inserted through various incision options, including periareolar (around the areola), inframammary (in the breast crease), and transaxillary (in the armpit). Dr. Gartner will discuss these options with you during your consultation and recommend the most suitable incision based on your anatomy and desired outcome.
  • Lower Cost: Saline implants tend to be more cost-effective compared to silicone implants. This affordability can make them an appealing option for those who have budget considerations or prioritize cost-conscious choices without compromising on safety and aesthetics.

FAQ’s About Saline Implants

Here are some common questions about saline implants:

Are Saline Implants Safe?

Yes, saline implants are considered safe and have a long history of use in breast augmentation surgeries. They are FDA-approved and have undergone rigorous testing to ensure their safety and effectiveness. Dr. Gartner will explain the safety measures in place and address any concerns you may have during your consultation.

Can Saline Implants Rupture?

While saline implants can rupture, it is relatively easy to detect as the saline solution is harmlessly absorbed by the body. Ruptures are rare but may occur due to trauma or other factors. If a rupture occurs, the affected implant deflates, and you will notice a change in breast size. Prompt medical attention is necessary to address a ruptured implant.

Can I Breastfeed with Saline Implants?

Yes, saline implants should not interfere with your ability to breastfeed. The implants are placed beneath the breast tissue or behind the chest muscle, minimizing any potential impact on milk production or delivery. However, it’s important to discuss your plans for breastfeeding with Dr. Gartner during your consultation.
