What Are The Advantages of Saline Breast Implants?

Modern breast implants are well-designed, well-manufactured and fundamentally safe. Houton-area women who are considering a breast augmentation can have confidence in the integrity of their implants, whether they opt for silicone or saline breast implants.

The two types of implants both offer distinct advantages. Saline implants are available to women who are 18 years of age are older, while you must be at least 22 to receive silicone breast implants.

Saline breast implants require a smaller scar than silicone because they are filled with saline solution after being placed in the breast pocket. This reduces recovery time as well.

Saline implants also offer certain safety advantages. First, they have a lower risk of capsular contracture than silicone implants. Second, in the event of implant rupture, the saline solution in these implants will be safely absorbed into your body. The rupture will also be evident, allowing for a quicker solution; silicone implants tend to leak slowly and inconspicuously.

Fortunately, both silicone and saline implants are safe. Your choice will be determined by your specific goals and priorities. Dr. Michael Eisemann will give you expert advice and guidance.

If you’re a resident of the Houston, Texas area and you’re considering breast implants, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation. We also help patients from across the country and around the world.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
