When deciding to undergo breast implant surgery in San Antonio, it is important to understand the different types of implants and procedure techniques available. The two main types of breast implants are saline and silicone, with silicone being the more natural feeling breast. Similar breast shapes can be created with either type of implant and there is no significant difference in the complication risk for either type of implant. Aside from the type of implant, there are diameters and projections, as well as risks from which to choose that must be individualized for each patient's anatomy, and we can provide special breast implant sizers to help determine what size implant looks and feels best.

About Silicone Implants

Silicone implants consist of a silicone rubber shell that is filled with a predetermined measurement of silicone gel and includes a patch that covers the entry port of the implant. The silicone implants are available in a variety of shapes, profiles, volumes, textures, thicknesses, and a selection of shell lumens from which to choose. Because silicone gel has a texture that is similar to breast tissue, many surgeons feel that silicone implants have a more natural look and feel than saline implants.

In the event of a silicone implant rupture, the breast often looks and feels the same because the silicone gel may leak into surrounding areas of the breast without a visible difference. Replacing a ruptured silicone gel implant is more difficult than repairing a saline implant and silicone implants also have a higher rate of capsular contracture and higher deflation rate. The newest silicone implants are made of a cohesive gel that greatly reduces the risks associated with silicone rupture, however, they are not yet available in the United States.

After a recent comprehensive evaluation of reports that silicone breast implants were responsible for connective tissue diseases, the Association of Silicone Breast Implants and the Institute of Medicine concluded that there is 'no definitive evidence linking breast implants to cancer, neurological diseases, neurological problems or other systemic diseases.' Therefore, after this announcement, silicone implants have become popular once again.

Saline Implants

Saline implants are also made of a silicone rubber shell, but it is inflated to the desired size with sterile saline. Saline filled implants are available in fixed volume and adjustable volume implants, with most saline implants having a valve that is sealable by the surgeon. A fixed volume implant is filled with the entire volume of saline at the time of implantation and an adjustable volume implant is filled intra-operatively and has the potential for further postoperative adjustment. If a saline implants ruptures, it deflates and the results are almost immediately visible, whereas silicone implant ruptures are harder to detect.

Adjustable Breast Implants have been used for many years in post-cancer patients receiving implants for breast reconstruction surgery, although the same adjustment to the size of a saline implant fill or saline reduction is routine, there are decisions to make regarding what is best for the individual patient.
