Large Breast Implants And The Options Available
Breast implants will enhance the size, contour and lift of a woman’s breast. There are different breast implant methods available requiring thought, consideration and research before deciding on the procedure. Be sure to consult a highly qualified surgeon before making a definitive decision about getting large breast implants.
In 1992, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) placed a moratorium on silicone breast implants for health reasons. Until the moratorium was lifted by the FDA in November 2006, saline implants were almost exclusively used. Clinical trials are being conducted on cohesive silicone gel implants to determine their safety and effectiveness and have not been approved by the FDA. Saline implants are available in round and tear drop shape to accommodate the body contour desired. Saline implants larger than C are usually a special order and will need to be ordered before the surgery is scheduled. Saline implants are filled during surgery. Prefilled saline implants are under review by the FDA. Saline is safe because it is essentially saltwater. In case of rupture, the body can absorb saline.
Silicone implants are made up of a silicone shell with silicone gel, and the gel is inserted during surgery. Silicone has a more natural feel to them as it closely resembles natural breast tissue, making them very desirable. The silicone has a less rippling effect than saline, leaving the breasts to look natural.
Cohesive silicone gel transplants are still being tested by the FDA but when approved, may become the most popular of the implants. The advantage of cohesive silicone gel is the safety factor involved. These implants have a strong and durable shell that is comprised of several layers to prevent “gel bleed” if the implant is ruptured. The filler is a thick consistency, similar to a gummy bear making it easier for this type of implant to hold their shape.
Large breast implants can be very costly, and most are not covered by insurance for simply cosmetic purposes. In addition to the implant fee, there is a fee for the surgeon and anesthesiologist and sometimes a facility fee. The total cost can range between $5,000 and $10,000. A silicone breast implant will run approximately $4,500, with an additional fee for large breast implants. A saline breast implant will run approximately $3,500, with an additional fee for large breast implants. Large to extra large breast implants are usually anything over a D cup. The silicone and saline breast implant is subject to a separate fee for the surgeon and anesthesiologist.Large Breast Implants And The Options Available,
