Service Description

Saline vs. Silicone: There are advantages to both types of implants. Saline implants are filled after the shell has been inserted, so they can be placed through a smaller incision. In the (unlikely) case of an implant rupture or leak, the body will immediately and safely absorb the saltwater filling. Silicone implants come pre-filled by the manufacturer, so they require a larger incision for placement. They are also made of a cohesive gel-like material that largely retains its shape in the case of an implant leak or rupture (making it difficult to notice that a problem has occurred). However, many women prefer the natural look and feel that silicone implants provide.

Round vs. Teardrop: Implants come in round or teardrop shapes. Round implants have equal projection on the top and bottom, whereas teardrop implants have a gentle slope that is closer to the shape of a natural breast.

Incision Pattern: Implants can be placed through an incision around the nipple, in the crease of the breast or through the armpit. Dr. Landon will suggest the incision pattern based on several factors, including the type of implant being used.

We currently use Natrelle Gummy Bear Implants for most augmentation surgeries.
