Breast implant options in Dallas, TX.

Question:

Does anyone use saline breast implants anymore? Why is silicone so popular?

Dr. Kenkel Answers:

Saline breast implants are still an option for our patients seeking breast augmentation in Dallas and Frisco, TX, but most of our patients today prefer silicone gel implants for a number of reasons.

  • Most patients feel they are a softer and a more natural feel compared to the saline alternative.
  • There is less visibility and palpability of gel implants through the skin compared to the saline alternative.
  • Their safety has been confirmed with countless peer-reviewed studies published in our journals.

The FDA approved silicone for use in breast augmentation back in 2006 and confirmed their safety.  In 2017, we have more choices than ever for breast augmentation include options for shape, surface, projection and filler. While we do not use saline implants very often, it is nice to have that choice for our patients who are more comfortable with that option.
