Your bust plays an important role in your sense of femininity, and you deserve one that shows off the curves and contours you’d prefer to see in the mirror each day. A breast augmentation in Maryland with Dr. Guy Cappuccino is an excellent way to achieve a bust that leaves you with a curvy and alluring silhouette.
What are the different types of Implants?
The choice of implant filler, implant size, shape, and other features will be determined based on your breast anatomy, body type, and your desired increase in size. Your lifestyle, goals, and personal preferences, will also be determining factors. Dr. Cappuccino offers a choice between silicone and saline implants. During your preoperative consultation, Dr. Cappuccino will talk you through the features of each implant type, and help you make the choice that suits you best.
Breast implants are medical devices with a solid silicone, rubber shell which can be filled with either saline solution (sterile salt water) or elastic silicone gel. Both saline and silicone gel breast implants are approved by the U.S. FDA, meaning they have been rigorously researched and tested, and reviewed by an independent panel of physicians for safety.
Patients should wait until their breasts are fully developed to consider augmentation. Saline implants are FDA approved for augmentation in women 18 years of age and older. Silicone implants are FDA approved for augmentation in women age 22 and older. Saline or silicone implants may be recommended at a younger age if used for reconstruction purposes.
