With A Warm, Caring Staff and Stunningly Natural Results,
Our Approach to Surgery is Anything but Plastic
Among the many choices you’ll make during your breast implant surgery process, finding the right implant choice can be overwhelming. That’s because there are more implants available than ever before. Whatever your goals for breast augmentation, we can help you find the right implant for you. During a private consultation at our Cary office, Dr. Brian Coan can discuss the pros and cons of each implant type so that you get the results you want with the implant that suits you best. At CARE Plastic Surgery, we’re proud to offer an extensive collection of the following implant types.
Cohesive silicone gel implants, sometimes called gummy bear implants, are among the newest types of implants available. These implants are more cohesive than traditional silicone implants and are form stable, meaning that they hold their shape and don’t deflate if they are cut into (like a gummy bear). Unlike traditional silicone or saline implants, these options come in two different shapes.
These three options from Natrelle offer three different levels of cohesiveness (or gumminess) for a customized level of feel and stability. The Inspira Responsive implant is similar in feel to a traditional silicone implant, while the SoftTouch offers gummier feel and results. The Cohesive implant offers the cohesiveness of the original 410 anatomical implants but with a full, round shape. If you’re looking for fuller results in the upper pole of the breast, round gummy bear implants are an excellent option.
Traditional silicone implants are filled with a liquid-like silicone gel that feels soft and similar to natural breast tissue. This implant type is tried and true, and is the favorite option for women looking for superior feel and look. In some cases, silicone implants can require a larger incision for placement than saline implants. Silicone gel implants can also require monitoring for silent ruptures.
Saline breast implants are made up of a strong silicone shell that is filled with a saline solution, or sterile salt water. These can offer superior safety since the saline can be easily absorbed by the body if ruptured. They can also be placed with a smaller incision since they can be filled after placement for exact fullness and size. In many cases, they are less expensive than silicone options.
Now more than ever, there’s an implant that suits you and your augmentation goals best. During a consultation with Dr. Coan, you can discuss your preferences and concerns about breast implants and select the right option for you. Dr. Coan has extensive experience with both traditional implants and gummy bear implants and can plan the right augmentation with your preferred choice.
