What is saline breast augmentation?

top 200 drugs 2012 brand generic viagra In this procedure, sterile salt water is used to enlarge breast size. The procedure for saline breast implants is to surgically insert a shell that is empty. Once the shell is in place, it is filled with saline (salt water). This surgical “boob job” procedure can only be performed by a certified plastic surgeon.

Who is a candidate for saline breast augmentation? Healthy women who are at least 18 years of age with small breasts are candidates for saline breast augmentation. Patients with breast size differences can have this corrected through different implant fill volumes. Also, saline breast implants do not prevent breast sagging. If there is loose skin and sagging, a lift may be indicated as well. Visit Dr. Yang’s breast lift page and breast augmentation with lift page to learn more about receiving breast enlargement along with breast lifts.

Which is better, silicone breast augmentation or saline breast augmentation?

How is the cosmetic plastic surgery performed? What are the risks? The procedure is performed in a fully licensed outpatient plastic surgery center. General anesthesia is used. A saline-filled (saltwater-filled) implant is placed behind the pectoralis muscle. The incision is placed in the breast fold.
