2. Size

Patients sometimes become anxious when it comes to choosing the size of their implant for augmentation. The majority of patients who seek a breast augmentation want their results to look as natural as possible. Dr. Tal Roudner helps his patients achieve the results they desire by determining which breast size will look the most natural with their body shape.

3. Silicone

A breast augmentation using silicone implants offer patients a natural feeling breast that is lighter and softer than can be achieved using saline breast implants. Additionally, silicone has a lower rate of rippling than saline does. Silicone breast implants for augmentation are more expensive than saline implants.

4. Saline

Some patients choose saline over silicone for their breast augmentation because it is less expensive and requires a slightly smaller incisions. The required follow up with MRI studies for silicone breast implants is not necessary with saline breast implants.

5. Surgical Incision

The majority of patients who have a breast augmentation want to keep their augmentation surgery private. This brings concerns as to the size and location of the surgical incisions on the breasts that are necessary to accomplish an augmentation.

Innovative surgical techniques like the Keller Funnel technique have allowed Dr. Roudner to significantly reduce the appearance of scars his patients experience following a breast augmentation procedure.

Additionally, standard breast incisions Dr. Roudner uses allow for minimal visibility of breast augmentation scars. These incisions include the peri-areolar (around the areola) and inframammry (breast fold) techniques.
