Last year, more women opted for silicone gel breast implants over saline implants to enhance the size, shape and fullness of their breasts. According to the latest statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, silicone breast implants were used in 72 percent of breast augmentations in 2013, while saline breast implants were used in 28 percent of the procedures.
For some women, there are a number of advantages to choosing silicone breast implants, such as:
- Minimal incision and no-touch method with the Keller Funnel technology used by Dr. Gonyon.
- Natural breast shape, appearance and feel.
- Decreased likelihood of implant rippling.
Of course, some women prefer saline breast implants. Dr. Gonyon will help you choose which implant is the right fit for your expectations and desired results.
Not only did more women opt for silicone breast implants, but the number of total breast augmentations performed also rose in 2012, by 1 percent. With innovative materials such as silicone breast implants, women can get more natural, beautiful breast augmentation results than ever before.
