Prominent New York City Plastic Surgeon Says Women Prefer New Silicone Gel Breast Implants

Share Article

FDA-approved silicone gel breast implants offer patients benefits of safety, longevity and satisfaction, making them the implant of choice for many women undergoing breast augmentation in New York City.

Since their FDA-approval, silicone implants have provided higher satisfaction rates among patients.

New York City Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael Fiorillo offers patients breast augmentation with safe, natural-looking results through the use of silicone gel and saline-filled implants. While both types offer their own advantages, women across the country seem to prefer the aesthetic appeal of silicone implants.

Although banned from use in 1992 because of potential health concerns, silicone implants were once again approved for use in breast augmentation procedures in 2006, and offer many women a much-desired alternative to saline implants. Throughout their periods of FDA-approval, silicone implants have remained the most popular implant choice for women seeking breast augmentation.

Silicone breast implants produce breasts that look and feel more natural than saline implants, as they tend to retain shape better and are less likely to wrinkle or ripple, resulting in a deformed appearance. They also have a softer feel than saline implants, while still maintaining a sturdy exterior that provides long-term results. Silicone breast implants are especially effective for thinner women or those who do not have sufficient breast tissue to cover the implant edges.

Dr. Fiorillo, who performs breast augmentation in New York City, has noticed the growing popularity among his own patients as well. “Over the past few years, silicone breast implants have certainly become the implant of choice for many of my patients,” said Dr. Fiorillo. “Since their FDA-approval, silicone implants have provided higher satisfaction rates among patients.”

The best implant material for each individual patient depends on their goals for treatment as well as current breast tissue, and can be determined by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Fiorillo. In addition to implant type, patients can also customize their breast augmentation procedure by selecting the size, shape and placement of the implant.
