A First Look Into Breast Implant Options

What brand is right for you? What type of implant is right for you? These are all questions that Dr. Ozan Sozer will help you to decide. Here is a brief overview of the types of information you will cover with your physician.

  • You will be looking at both Silicone and Saline implant options.
  • A silicone gel-filled breast implant is a sac (implant shell) of silicone elastomer (rubber) filled with silicone gel.
  • It is surgically implanted either under your breast tissue or under your chest muscle.
