Many women in Las Vegas researching breast implants commonly ask this question. You basically get to choose from two main types: those that are filled with saline and those filled with silicone gel. Most patients choose silicone, as it gives you even more options; silicone gel or the popularly named gummy bear breast implants. You can read more or contact us to schedule your consult.
Breast Implants can be placed under or on top of the muscle, the benefits of either position in debatable. Most plastic surgeon’s in Las Vegas would agree the submuscular position is better. When the implants are under the muscle, more of the your natural tissue covers the implants. Please call our office at 702.838.3755, so we can better explain the benefits in detail with you.
You have a few choices when it comes to the incision point. Breast implants can be placed thru your armpit, through the colored part of the areola (periareolar) or in the crease underneath the breast, called the inframammary incision. Each incision site has advantages and disadvantages.
Many surgeons place the implants through only one incision site, however I’ve performed hundreds of breast augmentations, and give you the choice of which of three incision sites is to your liking. I invite you to read more about incision sites so you’re better prepared for our consultation.
