Question:

Hi. I’m 29 and interested in breast implants. Can you explain what the various options are that are available to me?

Answer:

You have many choices for this surgery. First, do you want silicone or saline implants? I prefer silicone implants because they give a softer more natural feel and appearance. Saline implants should be changed every ten years since they have a tendency to leak after this period of time. After three years, saline implants tend to ripple when a person leans forward.
The implants can be placed under the breast tissue or under the muscles of the chest wall. I prefer under the breast tissue. This method gives a more natural contour to the breast and natural cleavage. Implants that are placed under the pectoralis muscle have a tendency to sit farther apart and distort the cleavage plane. They have a tendency to sit higher and lateral to the normal breast placement. The breast are firmer and may move with arm movement.
