Picking the Right Implant

Planning your breast augmentation procedure is an exciting time.  There are some decisions need to be made when getting a breast augmentation. This is an individualized procedure in order to give each women their ideal breast look. Dr. Timothy Janiga works hard to help his patients make the right choices for their goals. One of the main decisions, and arguably the most important, is choosing the correct implant type. There are a variety of breast implants offered by our team. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages depending on your lifestyle and goals. Learn more about these implant types and get started making the right decision for you.

Saline Implants

Saline implants are an excellent option for women with naturally small breasts who want to increase their size. These implants are made of a solid silicone shell and filled with sterile saline water. They can be filled in the operating room to your desired size. Since they can be filled later, saline implants can use a smaller incision during the breast augmentation procedure. These implants are said to feel less natural than silicone implants. However, there is no worry if they rupture as the body absorbs the saline water.

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants provide a natural shape and feel for women who undergo breast augmentation. These implants are made and filled with a silicone gel. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes to help women get their ideal look. Unlike saline implants, silicone implants come pre-filled, so they require a slightly larger incision during surgery to place the implants. Newer silicone implants are cohesive silicone and they stay intact if the outer shell is ruptured.  They are commonly called Gummy Bear or INSPIRA.

Gummy Bear Implants

Gummy bear implants are the newest developments in breast implants. They are stable and retain their shape better than other implant types. Gummy bear implants come in either a round or a teardrop shape. They are made from silicone and come pre-filled for the surgery. The strong structure of these implants reduces the chance of rupture.

INSPIRA Breast Implants

Natrelle INSPIRA is a collection of implants that are round and filled with cohesive silicone gel. Each implant has its shape and feel. Meaning that patients can select a customized fit with the exact projections and fit they desire. These implants are versatile and a preferred option for patients.

Vectra Imaging

Vectra is an imaging software best utilized for rhinoplasty and breast augmentation.  When you come in for a breast augmentation consult, a photo will be taken with this special 3-D camera software and you will be able to see your own body “trying on” the different types and projections of breast implants.  This software will help you and Dr. Janiga make sure that you are completely satisfied with the implants, size and type that you have chosen prior to your surgery.
