Breast Implants & Enlargement

From Dr. William Palin

Breast implants and breast enlargement are very popular procedures that cosmetic surgeons perform. Even though these procedures are performed so routinely, they need to be done by a surgeon who takes into account the aesthetics involved and who has the requisite skill to perform these surgeries with consistently good results.

Breast implants come in two main types. There are saline breast implants, which are filled with salt water. There are also silicone breast implants. The latter type has been the subject of some very bad information that has been put out in the press.


There is no established connection between silicone breast implants and any type of disease. This is simply a fact. The FDA, since 2006, has allowed any woman who wants to get silicone breast implants to do so. Silicone breast implants have a more natural feel to them than saline breast plants and some cosmetic surgeons prefer to use these for that reason. The choice, however, is ultimately up to the woman.


In the vast majority of cases, a woman undergoing a breast enlargement is going to want breasts that are larger than the one she has but that are still suitable for her frame. This is something that Dr. Palin can help with. In the case of saline filled breast implants, the amount of augmentation can actually be adjusted after they are inserted. This cannot be done with silicone implants.

Dr. Palin uses the safest techniques and the safest materials to carry out these procedures. Breast augmentation can help someone to achieve a level of self-esteem that they may have never realized before. If you have been considering breast augmentation, consult with Dr. Palin to get the facts about this surgery and the materials used in it and you’ll find that it is a very safe and routine procedure these days.
