Breast Implants Q & A

Why do women seek breast implants?

Women pursue breast enhancement for various reasons. Some want larger breasts while others want to achieve a look that's proportionate to the rest of their body. Breast implants are also often part of this practice’s popular “mommy makeover” packages.

Common reasons for breast implants include a desire to restore size and fullness lost due to:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight loss

Some women seek breast implants to correct asymmetry or restore breast volume after a mastectomy or other surgical procedure. Many women turn to Dr. Brauman to remove or reposition breast implants that were not correctly placed by a different surgeon.

What types of breast implants are available?

You have numerous options available for breast augmentation. Dr. Brauman works with you to determine your aesthetic goals and choose the best implant style for your needs.

These are some of the currently available options.

Saline implants

Saline implants are filled with a saline solution and covered in an elastomer silicone outer shell. Dr. Brauman can fill the implants with varying amounts of saline to create a customized outcome.

Silicone implants

Silicone implants are filled with Silicone gel. They are soft and designed to feel natural, similar to the consistency of breast tissue.

Gummy bear implants

Gummy bear implants are form-stable implants they are designed to hold their shape. The silicone gel is cohesive – thicker than the silicone gel in silicone implants to create a firmer breast.

Textured implants

Textured implants have been shown to reduce the occurrence of capsular contracture which is manifested as the hardening of the breast implant.

Additional implant options are round implants and smooth implants. Every option has a set of advantages and disadvantages that Dr. Brauman explains to you.

What is the recovery process like after breast implants?

In the hours and days after your surgery, you may need painkillers to remain comfortable, and you may notice swelling. At home, it’s important to follow Dr. Brauman’s post-op advice on how to care for your incisions.

Expect to wear a specific type of bra to support your breasts as you heal. Most women return to normal activities within a few days and can perform strenuous tasks in approximately six weeks.
