Saline implants are a silicone balloon filled with IV fluid-saline. Silicone implants are silicone balloons filled with silicone gel.
Silicone implants are softer, more natural, with less chance of seeing ripples. There is minimal danger with each, but if silicone leaks it should be removed. The only way to diagnose a leak is with an mri. ...Read more
Nothing: This is controversial and varies based on the type of implant and how the augmentation was done. If the architecture of the nipple was disrupted there is the possibility that no milk production would happen. However if the nipple was not disrupted there should be no problems with breast feeding. ...Read more
Minimal: At this point in time we do not think silicone causes systemic illnesses. It can cause local problems at the site, which is why one should never have it injected. The newer silicone implants are safer, but difficult to tell if they are leaking. The only way to diagnose leaking silicone implants now is with an mri. ...Read more

Emerging option: And an increasingly popular technique with a variety of different possible approaches used by different practitioners with risks like any other surgery related to the donor sites and variability in fat graft survival and concerns with alteration in residual breast tissues and potential interference with imaging. For a full reconstruction, it is not uncommon for multiple sessions to be used in order to achieve satisfactory volume. The picture to the right shows one of my patients who experienced pain with her implant reconstruction and underwent one stage fat transfer. Go to http://www. Fattransferbreastaug. Com. ...Read more
No: We've been looking at inert foreign materials for over a century and the cancer risk seems near-zero except for a few older orthopedic implants that may have presented some small extra risk. To cause cancer, something needs to be able to either mutate dna or cause preposterously increased cell turnover. ...Read more
implant palpability: In my breast augmentation consultation I always discuss the issue of implant palpability (that is being able to feel the implant.) all implants regardless of size will be palpable upon careful inspection. Generally the implants blend with the natural tissue and it is neither uncomfortable nor obvious, however patients must be aware that if they search for the implant they will find it. ...Read more

In which butt augmentation is it easier to fix deformity if it was to happen, with silicon or fat transfer implants?
Fat for sure: Aside from hardly ever having seen a deformity after fat transfer in the last eight years of performing this procedure, I can tell you any adjustment to it is simple, quick, easy and relatively pain free. Butt implants simply get removed if they leave deformity. The best is your own tissue, in the right hands (surgeon). Doctorjohnwalker. Squarespace. Com. ...Read more

Here are some...: I have never heard of the way to "dekeratinize" the skin of glans penis in my 46-year traditional urological study and practice although a lot of talk and hype on silicon patch has been going around for quite some time. In fact, skin keratinization is the normal protective response to physical stimulation over time, which occurs in palms and soles. Before proceeding with such, check out why you... ...Read more
