Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
Today, women considering breast augmentation have more options than ever when it comes to choosing breast implants. Saline, silicone, and form-stable or cohesive silicone gel implants (sometimes called gummy bear implants) are all available fill materials.
Many women feel that the form-stable silicone gel implants have a more natural-feeling consistency, and hold their shape in a more natural way. When sliced in half, rather than migrate outside the implant shell, the silicone gel remains in place, in a stable form.
This patient, in her 40s, was interested in rejuvenating the appearance of her smaller B-cup breasts. After discussing her breast implant options with San Jose plastic surgeon Dr. Vincent Lepore and trying a number of styles and sizes of implants, she chose a high-profile cohesive silicone gel implant. She is very pleased with her results and the natural look and feel of her breasts.
