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