Breast Augmentation in Wichita, KS
If you’re considering breast augmentation surgery, one or your first questions is likely “how much does it cost?” While there’s a significant price variation from surgeon to surgeon, and region to region, working with Wichita Plastic Surgeon Dr. Stacy L. Peterson offers a predictable experience. Here’s what you need to know:
Which Surgery Option is Right for You?
There are two primary types of breast augmentation surgery: saline augmentation and silicone augmentation. Determining which is right for you is the first step to gaining a clear picture of the procedure’s cost. Here are the benefits and drawbacks of each:
Silicone augmentation involves the addition of implants that are filled with thick silicone gel.
Designed to mimic the look and feel of the natural female breast, silicone implants are used widely by women ages 22 and over, and are popular in breast reconstruction surgery.
Silicone breast implants are currently the most popular option for patients, as they last longer, don’t weigh quite as much as saline implants, and are less prone to rippling.
Saline augmentation utilizes breast implants filled with a sterile saline solution or salt water.
These implants are inserted into the breast tissue while they’re empty and filled to the desired level once they’re in place.
Like silicone implants, saline implants utilize a silicone outer shell, which helps them look and feel more natural.
Which is Best for You?
Today, both saline and silicone implants are a fine option for most women. The one you eventually select will come down to your personal preference and your desired look.
This is particularly the case since both implant types have the potential for similar risks, including scarring, hematoma, wrinkling, and leakage or rupture.
If you have any questions about the benefits and drawbacks of each option, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Dr. Stacy L. Peterson.
