What are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are a flexible shell filled with a fluid or gel. These shells are placed into the chest through a cosmetic procedure and add volume and shape to the female breast for a long period of time. Implants will not only enhance your chest, but they will also improve your overall appearance and body contours. At our office, we offer two types of breast implants for our clients. These implants come in different shapes and sizes so that each of our patients can have personalized treatment.
Made up of a silicone shell, these implants are filled with a soft silicone gel. Silicone implants are often praised for feeling more like natural breast tissue.
Saline implants also consist of a silicone shell. However, saline implants are filled with a saline, or saltwater, solution.
Dr. Fedele and you will determine which implant type is best for you. You will work together to choose your best implant size that reflects your ideal aesthetic and also naturally improves your frame. During your personal consultation with Dr. Fedele, you will have the opportunity to look through implant sizers and try them on.
Viewing your options will allow you to narrow down your options and choose your perfect size. We find that it is a big help to have ladies look through and try on implant sizers. It allows them to mentally visualize how they will look and how their dream is becoming a reality! Looking through the various implants will also give you a good idea of what shape implant you want. We provide our patients with two shape options.
Round implants provide consistent shape all over the breasts. Many women choose round shaped implants because they not only improve the shape of the breasts, they improve the cleavage of the chest as well. Round implants come in smooth and textured surfaces. Smooth and textured surfaces can enhance the breast feel and improve the enhancement naturally. Round implants also come in three different profile shapes. Our patients will choose between low, medium and high profiles to determine how much breast projection is ideal for them.
These implants are thicker at the bottom and thin on top. They are shaped similarly to teardrops and will provide the breasts with a thicker base. Teardrop implants are more anatomically correct and can help your chest appear more natural. Teardrop implants only come in textured surfaces but will enhance the way the breasts feel. Teardrop implants are ideal for women who desire higher breast projection.
All of this information will be gone over in great detail in your consultation. You will also have the opportunity to look through your options and try on any implants that interest you!
There are so many benefits to breast implants! The primary advantages are that the implants will give you long-lasting, impressive results that you will notice immediately following surgery.

Estimating Breast Implant Size
Here are some helpful instructions for estimating the size of breast implants after surgery. Click here to view.
Breast enlargement accomplished with implants is often completed in about an hour. The surgery is on an outpatient basis and is performed with general anesthesia. The surgery itself will require meticulous work and an eye for detail.
Incisions will be placed discreetly, either under the breast or around the areola. Some procedures can be performed with only an incision in the armpit. A transaxillary procedure is performed with an endoscope and will not create any scarring along with the breasts. However, this procedure can only be completed with certain patients based on their desired aesthetic. Some women opt for their implants to be brought to their chest from an incision along with their naval. This procedure is completed endoscopically and can only be performed with saline implants. Dr. Fedele and you will have decided which incision method is right for you during your consultation.
After the incision is made, an area will be created for the implant to be placed within so it remains securely attached to the chest wall.
Implants are either placed above or below the pectoral muscle. Implants placed below the muscle interfere less with mammograms. When placed below the muscle, they will project your natural breast tissue. Implants placed on top of the pectoral muscle will be felt along with the breast tissue. Only women who have enough breast tissue to sufficiently cover the implant will be able to receive placement above the muscle.
Dr. Fedele will provide his expert opinion to help you achieve your best outcome!
Once the implant is placed, incisions will be closed and drains may be needed to reduce any excess fluid collection. Bandages will be applied and you will likely stay in a recovery room for about two hours after which someone will need to drive you home.
Your chest will be swollen and sensitive after surgery and for about four days after. During this time, pain medication can be used to control discomfort. We encourage patients to get up and start moving around when they feel able to. Brief walks will improve circulation and help bring down swelling.
You will need to sleep on your back for a few weeks. Placing pillows on either side of you or sleeping sitting up will help you remain on your back.
Most patients return to work after a week and exercising after a month.
Following surgery, you will notice an improvement in the size of your breasts. As swelling decreases, you will notice the improved shape, cleavage, and projection of the breasts. Breast implant surgery is a long-lasting treatment. With a healthy lifestyle and consistent weight, you will be able to enjoy your results for years!
