Breast Implant Candidates
Breast implants are a great option for patients who desire breast augmentation to restore or enhance their breast volume. Often, patients seek augmentation because they have always been smaller-breasted and desire more volume. Other patients come in seeking breast augmentation because they have lost volume in the breasts over time, sometimes due to weight loss or pregnancy. In general, patients should be in good overall health to avoid any surgical or post-surgical complications.

There are two types of breast implants you may choose from: silicone or saline. Silicone implants are regularly used for cosmetic surgeries because they are safe and stable. Silicone breast implants are made from a thick, cohesive, silicone gel encased in a thin silicone shell. These implants offer a more natural look and feel, and are less likely to ripple. Saline breast implants are thin silicone shells that are filled with a sterile saline solution, and can allow for smaller incisions because they can be filled after they are placed.
Implants come in both round and teardrop shapes. Round implants can increase fullness of the top of the breast and limit complications from implant rotation. Teardrop implants are fuller at the bottom, providing a more natural breast shape. However, implants in this shape can potentially rotate, which could require surgical correction.
Patients can choose implants that come in a range of profiles. A low-profile implant will have a wider base, spreading across more of the chest. A high-profile implant will have a smaller base width but more projection for a given volume. Dr. Eliopoulos tends to prefer a mid-range implant for a more natural enhancement without overstretching the skin pocket. Dr. Eliopoulos can help you decide the right options to achieve your desired silhouette.
There are two textures to choose from for implants: smooth and textured. A smooth implant typically will tend to move more freely in the breast pocket. Textured implants will allow the body to adhere more to the implant surface, helping to stabilize the implant. For this reason, texture is beneficial for patients choosing teardrop shaped implants.
The Ideal Implant
For many years, patients were forced to make a choice between conventional saline and silicone implants when they wanted a breast augmentation. But now Dr. Eliopoulos is proud to offer the Ideal Implant,® which was designed by a plastic surgeon to give women the best of both worlds. With a series of implant shells nested together, this is a saline-filled implant that performs with the more natural look and feel of silicone implants. Silicone gel implants tend to have a softer, more natural feel than traditional saline implants, with better maintenance of upper breast fullness, with less chance of palpability or visible wrinkling compared to saline. The Ideal Implant replicates these properties, with the added benefit that they do not have the problem of silent rupture. For more information on whether the Ideal Implant is right for you, just ask Dr. Eliopoulos! She will be happy to answer your questions.

"I had done years of researching implants, safety, and doctors but never felt comfortable enough to go through with surgery. A recent acquaintance informed me of Dr. Eliopoulos and couldn't say enough great things about her. After meeting Dr. Eliopoulos that comfortable feeling I was searching for was found. Her presence was soothing and she was extremely detailed on what my expectations would be. She exceeded my expectations both pre- and post-surgery." LJ, Age: 41, Dental Hygienist, NH

Risks and Benefits of Breast Implants
Breast augmentation is an extremely common and very safe procedure. However, any surgery carries potential risks. It is important to remember that implants are man-made devices. While they are extremely durable, and technology has continued to improve over the years, they are not guaranteed to last forever.
It is important for patients to understand that most likely they will require future breast procedures to maintain the implant. For example, an implant may develop a leak or rupture over time and, if so, can be replaced with surgery. Routine monitoring of your breasts, including breast exam and routine mammograms when age appropriate, along with possible MRI screening of silicone implants is recommended.
At the time of your consultation, Dr. Eliopoulos at the Center for Plastic Surgery, will spend a significant amount of time discussing with you the possible risks and benefits of breast implants. For many patients, the benefits of breast implants are worth the potential risks.
Implants can improve symmetry, restore your natural curves, improve the shape of the breasts, and increase the volume of your bust. Many patients feel significantly more confident following breast implant surgery.
