What are the different types of Breast Implants?
Breast Implant surgery is the most commonly undertaken breast enhancement procedure and was reported as being one of the top five most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in the United States in 2020. Breast Implant Surgery consists of creating an incision into the breasts where an implant can be inserted to enhance the size of the breast. Depending on the type of implant used, the implant may then be filled with saline, before the incisions are closed with stitches. Breast implants are extremely customizable as there are four key aspects for patients to consider when choosing their implants including:
The content of breast implants is either saline or silicone and the most suitable type will depend on your needs as well as your age, as the FDA does not allow anyone under 21 to have silicone implants. There are various benefits to both materials and these can be explained during your consultation. Additionally, the shape and position of the breast implants can be chosen so that the implant has the ideal projection and shape that each patient desires.
The Aesthetic Society explains that the recommended type of implant tends to be dependent on each patient’s breast anatomy, body type, desired size, and skin elasticity. To gain additional information on Breast Implants, you can view our blog on Breast Implants Explained.
Although many patients may be confident in the type of implant they desire, it is still important to contact a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon for a consultation so that you can discuss your options and gain expert advice and information on the benefits of each implant type and the associated risks.
Should I have a Breast Lift and Augmentation?
In addition to Breast Augmentation surgery, many South Shore Breast Augmentation patients wish to undergo a Breast Lift at the same time. A simultaneous procedure can give patients a fuller, lifted, and more youthful breast contour. Patients may also consider a Breast Lift if they are hoping to:
- Correct uneven or downward pointing nipples
- Reduce large areolas
- Restore the position and shape of their breasts post weight-loss or pregnancy.
If you are considering Breast Augmentation in South Shore or a Breast Augmentation with Lift you should book a consultation with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon that specializes in breast procedures.
What is the price of a Breast Augmentation in South Shore, ma?
The total cost of a Breast Augmentation procedure in South Shore, Massachusetts will significantly vary depending on the expertise of the surgeon, what is included in the procedure cost, and which type of breast implants are used. Saline implants are typically cheaper than silicone or gummy bear implants and round-shaped implants also tend to be cheaper than tear-dropped-shaped implants. Therefore, the specific cost of each patient’s surgery will vary as the procedure can be highly customized. This means that the exact price of surgery can only be provided after your consultation.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the total cost of a Breast Augmentation procedure can range from $6,000 to $12,000. Breast Augmentation procedures are not generally financed by insurance companies unless the procedure is undertaken due to an illness or disease affecting your breasts. In most cases, breast implants are desired for aesthetic reasons and so insurance companies will be unlikely to assist in the payment of the procedure.

What if I want to remove my Breast Implants?
Due to the fact breast implants do not last forever they will need to be removed at some point in a patient’s lifetime. In many cases, patients will need their breast implants to be removed or replaced around ten years after they have had them inserted. However, this is not the case for all patients as some women suffer from various issues with their implants meaning they need to be removed sooner than this.
For example, one of the main medical reasons patients require their implants to be removed is because they are suffering from capsular contracture. This is where the capsule that forms around the implants contracts and squeezes the implant. If you believe you may be suffering, you may want to consider a variety of Capsular Contracture treatments. However, other patients may experience a leak or rupture in one or both implants that require them to need replacing. If saline implants rupture it is obvious for patients as the saline is safely absorbed by the body and causes the breast to deflate in size. If silicone implants rupture the silicone stays in the breast, outside of the implant, meaning that the rupture is less obvious to patients. This is why regular screenings should be undertaken by patients with silicone breast implants so they can find out if they need their implants replacing.
Finally, some patients wish to have their implants removed and replaced because they want to change the type or size of implant they had inserted. It is reported that 41% of Breast Revision surgeries are performed on patients who regretted their initial choice of implant. This is why it is important to undertake research, spend time considering your aims and meet with a Board-Certified Surgeon who has extensive breast augmentation expertise and can best advise you on the type of implant most suitable.
