Silicone Implants

Dr. Q offers her patients a choice of either saline or silicone in breast implant surgery, and each have their advantages.

Silicone gel-filled implants:

  • Generally look and feel more like natural breast tissue and, in many cases, are considered superior.
    Silicone breast implants were removed from the market by the FDA in 1992 and until 2006, saline-filled implants became the alternative to silicone.
  • Silicone implants were re-approved by the FDA for use in 2006 and are now available to women throughout the United States.
  • Come in a variety of shell surface finishes, sizes, thicknesses and shapes.
  • Currently, the FDA approves silicone gel breast implants manufactured by Mentor Corporation and Allergan for women aged 22 and over who seek breast augmentation or breast reconstructive surgery.

    A second type of silicone gel implants are still awaiting approval and are under clinical trials. These implants, often referred to as “gummy bear implants” have proven fairly popular in Europe, but have several disadvantages, mainly, their static shape, which renders them with an unnatural feel. Additionally, should the implant shift or rotate, surgery to reposition the implant is required.
