This is a great product because it so closely mimics actual breast tissue. It is difficult to discern through touch or sight that they are actually implants.
Atlanta, GA (Vocus) September 2, 2009 -
Until 2006, patients didn’t have a choice when it came to breast implants. Because of an FDA ban from the market, saline was the only approved device while further testing was conducted on silicone. Once the approval came through and the concerns involving silicone were laid to rest, it was returned to the market.
For breast implants in Atlanta, The Swan Center offers the most reliable products in saline and silicone breast implants. “There were many misconceptions about silicone breast implants and after years of research, they have been deemed safe for use again. In fact, there have been some great advancements in silicone and saline implant products that we use here at The Swan Center.”
While many patients can choose either/or and the decision comes down to personal preference, some patients are limited because of their body type, placement and amount of existing breast tissue available. Through a consultation with Dr. Bauer, he will evaluate the body and determine what the best approach is based on these factors as well as the desired results.
“When it comes to personal preference, my patients have to consider several factors such as size, the incision site and feel,” says Dr. Bauer. Saline implants tend to feel firmer and the incision site is smaller because the implant is empty when inserted. On the other hand, silicone holds it shape better and is pre-filled which means the incision site will be a little larger.
The latest advancements in silicone breast implants in Atlanta are available at The Swan Center. Dr. Bauer is dedicated to providing the best results and the newest MemoryGel technology is doing just that when it comes to silicone. “This is a great product because it so closely mimics actual breast tissue. It is difficult to discern through touch or sight that they are actually implants.”
