About Breast Implants
We offer two types of breast implants, both consisting of an outer silicone shell. Placed inside the breasts, these soft pouches add size, volume and shape to the bust line. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water after the empty shell is placed in the breast. These implants can be independently sized and shaped to correct asymmetrical breasts, and can be inserted through the lower crease, nipple or armpit.
Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel, a thick fluid with a consistency similar to human fat. They come in a variety of sizes to suit individual patients, and are usually inserted through the lower crease of the breast. Silicone implants are typically more expensive than saline implants, but many patients prefer them, believing they provide a more natural look and feel.
Are You a Candidate for Breast Implants?
Breast implants can be a life-enhancing cosmetic option for women who want to:
- Increase the size of breasts that are small, or that seem out of proportion with the rest of the body
- Add shape, volume and cleavage to breasts after weight loss or breastfeeding
- Improve the symmetry of breasts that are disproportionate in size or shape
During your consultation, Dr. Foster will discuss your cosmetic goals and conduct an examination. It is important to accurately present your health history and any factors that could affect your care, such as current medications you are taking. Women undergoing surgery to place breast implants should be in good health, and should not be pregnant or breast-feeding.
An Expert Surgeon
Dr. Foster's cosmetic surgery patients benefit from his advanced surgical techniques and artistic eye. He will work closely with you to personalize your procedure, determining which implant type — saline vs. silicone — is right for you, as well as the best method of placement for your implants. Dr. Foster will also help you determine which type, shape and size of implant is best for you, taking into account your body type and personal goals and concerns. He wants you to feel as comfortable as possible during your breast augmentation procedure, and to provide the beautiful, natural-looking results you deserve.
Breast Implant Exchange and Removal
If a past breast augmentation procedure is causing you problems, or you are unhappy with the results, Dr. Foster can help. Improperly placed implants can make breasts look and feel unnatural. In other cases, capsular contracture can occur. Capsular contracture involves scar tissue tightening around the implant, causing discomfort and distortion of the implant shape. Dr. Foster can replace your implants to provide the bust line size and shape you desire. With years of experience in breast augmentation and implants, Dr. Foster can help you decide the best way to proceed if your implants are ruptured or causing pain and aesthetic problems.
