Breast augmentation surgery can help create a more voluptuous bust line while improving your body image and self-confidence. The breast implant procedure enlarges small breasts and restores volume that can be lost due to aging, weight loss or childbearing by inserting breast implants.
One of the most important decisions you’ll make during your consultation at the Robert Zubowski MD Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, in Paramus, NJ, is choosing the type of breast implant for your mammoplasty procedure. We offer two main types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Both types of breast implants are available in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Silicone breast implants, more commonly known as gummy bear implants, are the latest innovation routinely performed at our Bergen County, New Jersey center. Gummy bear implants get its nickname from the candy because they resemble them in density and consistency. Silicone implants were first approved by the FDA in 2006 and have since become a popular choice among those of our patients who seek breast augmentation. Apart from its favorable feel and look, gummy bear implants are durable and less prone to rupture than saline. The gel implant is made with a solidified silicone gel that feels like your natural breast tissue; the gel-based filling will hold shape better in the case of a tear. However, they often require a larger incision, and you may have to undergo occasional MRI screenings to check for ruptures. Saline breast implants are less expensive, can be inserted with a smaller incision, and in the case of a rupture, its salt water content will harmlessly absorb into your body.
When it comes to the shape of your breast implants, the two most regularly used are the anatomical or “tear drop” breast implants that are fuller at the bottom, and the rounded or “Victoria’s Secret” look that creates more of a push-up effect on top. You’ll also need to consider the surface of your breast implants. Smooth breast implants feel soft and more natural, while textured implants are firmer to the touch, and are sometimes visible under the skin.
The fees for breast augmentation varies, depending upon the work you wish to have done, the type of implant silicone vs. saline, the kind of anesthesia chosen, and surgery center fees. Once you’ve had your in- person consultation with Dr. Zubowski, our Patient Coordinator, Dana Van Gray, will be able to give you a detailed quote.
