What You Need to Know About the Many Options of Breast Augmentation


Still among the most popular cosmetic procedures, breast augmentations accounted for 300,000 of plastic surgeries in the United States alone in 2018. These days, you have more options than just the traditional silicone type. 


At DiGeronimo MD Advanced Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ernest and our team are here to provide you with a wealth of options for all of your plastic surgery needs. We’re proud to provide you options so that you can fully customize your breast augmentation.

What a breast augmentation is 

There are a couple of different reasons for getting a breast augmentation, including:



During your operation, we place implants under your breast, beneath your natural tissues. The procedure, including how they’re placed and how long the operation will take, depends on the specific implants that you opt for. 

Your many options for breast implants

You can customize every aspect of your implants. To start off, you can choose between saline and silicone-filled implants. Silicone implants are still the most popular choice because of their moldability, but saline implants are a better option for those who don’t want surgical scars to show. 

Saline implants

Saline implants can be inserted into your breasts while they’re still empty and then filled up with saline through a syringe. So, your implant scars can be moved away from your breast area -- into your armpits, for example. 

Silicone implants

With silicone, you do have more options for shape and size. With the latest in silicone technology, you can opt for gummy bear implants, which are expertly contoured to give your breasts that desired teardrop shape. Although round implants can still create full breasts with a natural look to them, gummy bear implants are more desirable for those who want to create a certain subtle look. 

HSC silicone implants

You can also opt for high-strength cohesive implants, or HSC silicone implants. HSC implants have one of the strongest silicone gels used in implants. It allows you to rest assured that your implants are strong and durable while still maintaining a soft and natural appearance and feel. HSC gel is the latest in enhancements to implant technology.


Choosing the right implants for you.

At our office, we strive to make plastic surgery fully customizable so that you can get the exact look that you want.
