Breast Implant Types

Serving Knoxville, Sevierville, Knox County & Nearby Areas of Tennessee

The type of breast implant you choose for your breast augmentation procedure will directly affect the final aesthetic results. Working closely with you and listening to your desires, board-certified Knoxville plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto will help you determine what type of implant will best suit your unique needs and enhance your profile.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants come pre-filled to the exact specifications determined by you and Dr. Kleto. Silicone implants are the most common type of breast implant, but they are not available to women under the age of 22, per the Food and Drug Administration.

Dr. Kleto prefers silicone implants for reasons including:

  • Silicone implants look and feel more like natural breast tissue
  • Silicone implants provide fuller cleavage
  • Silicone implants will not ripple or wrinkle

Dr. Kleto will be happy to discuss the benefits of silicone implants with you during your initial consultation.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution after they have been placed. While saline implants do not look or feel as natural as silicone implants, they do offer the distinct advantage of reducing the size of your breast implant incisions. However, saline implants may ripple or wrinkle depending on the volume of breast tissue covering the implant.

Dr. Kleto has found submuscular breast implant placement can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but may still recommend silicone implants to further guard against this aesthetic imperfection.

No two bodies are the same. Knoxville breast surgeon, Dr. Kleto is a caring and gentle plastic surgeon who will listen carefully to all of your concerns prior to suggesting the type of implant that will best meet your needs. Working with you on an individual basis, Dr. Kleto will help you choose an implant that is sized and shaped to ideally enhance your frame, and restore appeal and beauty to your upper body.
