Saline or Silicone?
When you seek to undergo breast augmentation at Bellavita Center, you will be able to choose between saline and silicone implants. Saline implants consist of a silicone rubber shell that is inflated with sterile saline (a solution of salt and distilled water) to the desired size. Silicone implants are filled with a particular amount of silicone gel, which is a silicon-based compound. Saline and silicone implants have different specific benefits. Silicone implants may have a more natural feel, but saline implants are often able to be inserted with a smaller incision and therefore may result in less scarring. To discuss whether saline or silicone may be a better option for you, call our offices to set up your initial consultation.

Dr. Hsu can talk to you about your particular needs in order to determine the best route of placement as well as whether you should aim for placement below or under the pectoralis muscles in order to achieve the desired result.
