What are Silicone Breast Implants?

Designed to provide a natural and uniform shape and feel for women seeking breast augmentation, silicone implants are filled with a soft, silicone gel and are available in variety of shapes and sizes. Unlike saline implants, silicone implants are all pre-filled. Breast augmentation can also restore breast size and shape after pregnancy, breastfeeding, massive weight loss or from the natural aging process.

The Procedure

A breast augmentation with silicone implants is performed by Dr. Timothy Janiga in an outpatient surgery center using general anesthesia. As with saline implants, the surgery usually involves an incision under the crease of the breast, around the bottom of the areola, or in the armpit. Dr. Janiga then places the silicone implant under the muscle or breast gland.

This procedure takes one hour with another one to two hours of recovery time before going home.

"My family and I have seen Dr. Jennifer Janiga many times. She is knowledgeable, caring and honest. Dr. Tim Janiga has cared for me several times and I feel very confident in his skills. They both seem like they are genuinely interested in their patients. They are both very nice people and fine physicians." - PP
