Silicone Breast Implants Miami
Breast augmentation has become a popular procedure in the United States. This is why in The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved silicone gel-filled breast implants manufactured by Sientra Inc. They recommended silicone breast implants for cosmetic reasons to women over 22 years. The reason for this age is to ensure that the breast tissue is completely formed. These implants are also approved on breast reconstruction for women of any age.
Silicone gel implants in Miami are characterized by increased binding between molecules composing the gel, which is much more dense and viscous. Silicone implants contain a gel-like substance. The shapes are generally round, oval or contoured. The surface of the implants has traditionally been smooth to the touch, but there is now the option to have some sort of texture. Thus two types of benefits, both long term and short term, are achieved.
When the implants are aged and having pores or they are bluntly broken, silicone remains inside the implant or leaks in small amounts. The silicone, however, generally remains trapped in the surrounding tissue. The FDA recommends routine MRI scans every three years in order to detect any silent ruptures.
Advantages of Silicone Breast Implants Miami
The most advantageous breast implant in the United States is the high profile silicone, also called ‘gummy bear’. In Florida, gel implants are made with medical grade silicone. These implants are subjected to very thorough testing in order to establish their safety and effectiveness.
The cohesive gel-filled silicone implants have the great advantage of reducing rippling, given the strength of its internal structure. Their design within the breast is also kept intact. Cohesive silicone gel allows for the natural feel of the breast and also keeps normal body temperature, making it the most suitable filler today.
Silicone breast implants Miami will not interfere with breastfeeding, mammography, ultrasound, biopsies, etc.
Silicone Implants Risks
The percentage of complications of silicone gel implants Miami is minimal, but some things may occur including:
- Capsular contracture and the scar tissue forming around the implant may compress the implant. Consequently, the breast may feel a bit hard at first.
- Some women may experience some pain and infection in the breasts
- Difficulties could arise during insertion but only if the procedure is done by inexperienced surgeons.
- Temporary change in breast and nipple sensation.
- The patient will need a medical follow-up when the implant reaches the end of its life, between ten and twenty-five years.
Differences between Silicone Gel Implants Miami and Saline Implants Miami
The main difference between the two lies in silicone implants having a shell that has been previously filled with cohesive silicone gel, making it more unlikely for the implants to have rippling or wrinkling in them and any other problems related to the filling. Saline implants, on the other hand, have a silicone shell, but they are filled with a sterile saline solution instead during breast augmentation surgery.
As for texture, saline implants were categorized as firmer, while silicone are more like natural breast tissue since they are more viscous and dense mimicking natural fat. As for the location of the prosthesis, saline implants are placed beneath the muscle in order to prevent any waves or wrinkles that may appear. Silicone gel implants can also be positioned in any of the usual locations: under the breast and the breast muscle.
