WEBVTT 00:00:07.080 --> 00:00:11.760 One of the more common procedures that we perform is breast augmentation. 00:00:12.120 --> 00:00:15.360 There's a lot of different varieties of implants out there that are available, 00:00:15.440 --> 00:00:19.040 different sizes, shapes, silicone, saline. 00:00:19.200 --> 00:00:22.600 Patients often come in and are confused about what the difference 00:00:22.680 --> 00:00:26.240 between the two are, what the benefits of them are. 00:00:26.720 --> 00:00:29.040 Saline implants are still a good choice. 00:00:29.120 --> 00:00:31.520 They're not going to feel as natural as a gel implant. 00:00:31.720 --> 00:00:33.520 They also tend to have more rippling. 00:00:33.760 --> 00:00:36.720 A nice thing about that is if you do have a deflation, 00:00:36.800 --> 00:00:38.440 the body is going to absorb that fluid. 00:00:38.760 --> 00:00:40.200 You shouldn't have any problem. 00:00:40.360 --> 00:00:43.760 Most of the time, patients do choose silicone implants 00:00:43.840 --> 00:00:46.160 over the saline implants, at least in my practice. 00:00:46.240 --> 00:00:48.200 When they come in for their consultation, 00:00:48.880 --> 00:00:50.920 we're going to go over all these different options 00:00:51.000 --> 00:00:52.040 with the patient. 00:00:52.320 --> 00:00:55.283 They're also going to have the opportunity to try on the different implants 00:00:55.360 --> 00:00:58.160 to make sure the size and the shape is what they're wanting. 00:00:58.480 --> 00:00:59.880 We'll also give them some guidance 00:00:59.960 --> 00:01:02.600 about what's going to look best on their particular frame. 00:01:02.680 --> 00:01:05.760 Most of the time, if somebody needs a breast lift, 00:01:05.840 --> 00:01:07.880 we will do that at a separate procedure 00:01:07.960 --> 00:01:11.520 and then come back in and do the breast implant at a later date. 00:01:11.960 --> 00:01:16.360 The reason for that is you have a lot more choices of the size of the implant 00:01:16.440 --> 00:01:18.920 that you can put in if you stage a procedure. 00:01:19.280 --> 00:01:21.200 Most of the time, you get a much better result 00:01:21.280 --> 00:01:22.600 if you stage a procedure. 00:01:23.040 --> 00:01:24.360 Having said that, there are times 00:01:24.440 --> 00:01:29.240 that I will do a breast implant along with a breast lift at the same time, 00:01:29.480 --> 00:01:34.640 but that's on a case-by-case basis, and we evaluate every patient in-person 00:01:34.880 --> 00:01:36.920 and help make that determination.
