As with all consultations, he addresses all questions and concerns regarding any plastic surgery procedure, including covering the differences between saline and silicone breast implants.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants are FDA-approved for use in women over the age of 18. Saline implants are constructed with a silicone outer shell, and filled with a saltwater solution that can be easily absorbed by the body in the case of a rupture. Saline implants are filled after placement, which makes is possible for Dr. Sukkar to make a smaller incision, resulting in less visible scarring.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone breast implants are approved by the FDA for use in women who are over the age of 22. Composed of a silicone outer shell and filled with a thick, silicone gel, silicone breast implants are known for their natural appearance and feel. The risk of rippling is lower than with saline implants, and silicone is typically considered more advantageous for women who are exceptionally thin or who are undergoing breast reconstruction.
