Saline breast implants are normally filled with a sterile salt-water solution, which is similar to salt-water solutions used for intravenous administration. Next, the outer shells of the implants are made of a rubber-like material known as silicone elastomer. Saline breast implants have existed for many years. Currently, only women, who are over the age of 18, are eligible for saline filled breast implants. The good thing about saline breast implants is that millions of women have had successful breast augmentation procedures with them.

Understanding The Procedure

Before any surgery is performed, you and your doctor will review before and after pictures of other patients, clarify expectations, and agree about the desired final result. Saline breast implant surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, and can be done under general or local anesthesia.

During the surgical process, the incision is normally made around the areola, along the fold line under the breast, or through the armpit. These are the most effective techniques to create the inconspicuous scars. Next, the implant is either placed under the chest muscle or a place between the breast tissue and underlying chest muscle. Once the implant is successfully placed, it will be filled with the saline solution. Saline breast implants are placed while empty.

Sutures used for the procedure can be removed within ten days time. After that, you can resume all your routines, including vigorous exercise, driving, etc. The scars that are initially red will fade to their final appearance within one or two years.

I had one of the BEST experiences and am here to let women know, do not pick the first surgeon you find online. I met Dr. Newman after doing plenty of research on him. I had breast augmentation 11 years ago. I feel that I am more than qualified to write this review, being that I have been through it in the past. There is so much negligence out there, it is truly hard to trust anyone. I am one of those people. My first surgeon was not terrible, however, Dr. Newman was so outstanding, I had to write a review. He takes pride in state of the art equipment, as well as his amazing high qualified staff and over qualified anesthesiologists. One of his main concerns is safety. He made that very clear from our first meeting. Even though what he told me was all true, I was skeptical because of prior, negative experiences. Many doctors will tell you what you want to hear.Read More I am so tired of being lied to and hope at least one person will read this review and know, I am honestly doing this because of how many times I have been mislead. The quality of work done by Dr. Newman and his staff was top notch. My recovery was one day. I had very little pain and was lifting my son after 2. I still can't believe what little recovery I had. This was also something he told me about prior. The outcome was better than expected and I am so happy with my result. Dr. Newman is not the cheapest. I can honestly say, "you get what you pay for!" All of his advancements that result in a higher price are all those specifications you hope for in a surgeon and his practice. I am not getting paid to write this, I truly just wanted to share an honestly great experience and hope I can steer at least one person in the right direction! 5 stars all around!!! Going to write a review on a few different sites. Heard about this one from a friend.

What Are The Benefits Of Saline Breast Implants?

  • Saline breast implants safe and natural
  • Flexible volume; you can create the specific breast shape and volume you need and want
  • Saline breast implants offer greater peace of mind in the long run
  • Feels slightly firmer than their gel-filled counterparts
  • Requires a slightly smaller incision

Does Breast Size Correlate With The Number Of CC’s In A Breast Implant?

No, it usually does not. It depends upon the breast size you plan to begin with. With that, the final cup size does not directly correlate with the implant size. The main goal is to make the implants proportionate to the patient’s breast size and shape, the amount of breast tissue she has, and her chest wall diameter. It is imperative that you do not over-augment your breasts as there is risk of causing distortion and making them look too large for your body and chest wall.

Should I Worry About Major Sensory Changes Like Loss Of Nipple Sensation?

It is not uncommon for you to experience some sensory changes after receiving your saline breast implants. However, there is nothing to worry about as original sensation does return. The average waiting time is about three to six months. Do not be alarmed as it is acceptable to have some nipple sensation loss from any breast augmentation procedure. The ratio of sensory loss is approximately ratio of sensory loss from 5-10%.
