Saline and silicone breast implants last longer than ever thanks to advanced techniques and materials available to plastic surgeons today.

Does breast implant shape make a difference in the final appearance of your breast augmentation procedure? Yes, but perhaps not as much as the skill of the plastic surgeon you choose to work with. According to a recent study published in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery®, the official online journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast implant shape may not play as large a role in final results as once thought.

No bouncing for at the bare minimum for at least six weeks. We will tell you no lifting anything over 10 pounds for at least 4-6 weeks and no chest exercises (push ups, chest flys, etc.) for at least three months.

What is the difference in breast implant brands?
Breast implants today are made extremely safe and very durable. Competing brands offer mostly the same choices in actual materials used, shaped implants and projection. Most breast implants are filled with either saline fluid or have some sort of cohesive gel fill. Others are highly cohesive and/ or shaped.
