Breast Implant Surgery for New Tampa Patients – Implant Type and Placement Options
If you are considering breast implant surgery and live in New Tampa or any of the surrounding communities, you can visit one of Florida’s leading breast augmentation surgeons at the Bayside Center for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. John Roach, has performed countless breast implant surgeries for patients from throughout the Tampa Bay area, and is well-known for both his superior surgical skill and his dedication to outstanding patient care. Dr. Roach always takes the time to get to know his patients and educate them on the options available for their breast augmentation surgery.
When you visit Dr. Roach for your breast augmentation consultation, one of the first things he will explain is the different types of implants that are available for your surgery. Dr. Roach typically uses breast implants that have a silicone shell. Silicone shell implants are available with either a saline solution filling or a gel filling. The newest version of the silicone gel implants feature a unique, cohesive gel filling that is similar in texture to the inside of a gummy bear. These implants are commonly referred to as “gummy bear implants” and are known to provide a more natural look and feel to augmented breasts, and are the most popular option among Dr. Roach’s patients.
Dr. Roach will also discuss the options for implant placement in relation to the pectoral muscle. Your implants can be placed beneath your pectoral muscle, on top of the muscle, or so that the implant lies partially above and partially below the muscle. This last placement option is called dual-plane breast augmentation, and may provide a more natural appearance.
