What Should Your Expectations Be?
Breast implant surgery is a very common plastic surgery option for women looking to enhance their breast appearance, size, shape and feel.
According to a study published in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 98% of women who have had a breast augmentation surgery say that the results met or even exceeded their expectations.
When you have scheduled a consultation with your CAPS surgeon what they specifically recommend for your body regarding the size, shape and implant style. After all, we are here to help guide you to make the best choice.
What type of implants does CAPS use?
The two main types of implants we offer at our practice are Mentor Silicone and Mentor Saline.
Currently Mentor produces, and we offer, two different types of silicone gel implants; MemoryShape and MemoryGel.
Mentor MemoryShape Breast Implants are one of the latest innovations in the breast enhancement industry. Because they mimic the natural teardrop shape of the human breast, these particular implants provide very natural looking results. They tend to be a popular choice among women who want a more natural look as opposed to the very round implants.
MentorShape implants are filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel that is protected by a textured shell. The textured shell is what helps keep the implant in its proper place once inserted during surgery. The nice thing about MemoryShape implants is that they come in a wide variety of profiles which allows our surgeons to match the right profile for the differing body types and builds of our patients.
Mentor MemoryGel breast implants are one the most studied medical devices in the world as well as being Mentor’s most popular line of implants. The MemoryGel implants are available in four different profiles (all round in shape). These implants are chosen by millions of women worldwide for their classic round, perky shape and their natural give that closely resembles that of actual breast tissue.
Mentor’s saline Implants have been on the market longer and offer a firmer feel than their gel filled counterparts. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution, much like the salty solution that fills our bodies. These implants are inserted without fluid and then filled to your predetermined desired volume after they are properly placed during surgery. Our saline implants offer the most options as far as profile; they come in either a smooth or textured shell, and are available in a round, teardrop, or post-op adjustable shape.
