Benefits of Removing and Replacing Saline to Gel
denver, Boulder, and lone tree, colorado
Since their FDA approval in 2006, high cohesive silicone gel implants have gained much popularity with women who come to Dr. Broadway for breast augmentation. Many other women who come to the Broadway Center for Plastic Surgery have saline implants they received years ago. These women want to know the benefits of their saline implants and replacing them with silicone gel implants.
While this program made it look like only a select few people were dissatisfied with several areas of their bodies, the truth is thousands of people feel this way every day. For these people, a loss of self-confidence, feeling unsexy and unappealing, and desperately wishing there was one simple solution to correct all of their cosmetic problems has sparked a revolution in cosmetic surgery. At the Broadway Center for Plastic Surgery in Denver, Colorado, we understand that your suffering may be caused by a range of cosmetic issues, and are pleased to offer a wide array of procedures that can help you look and feel your absolute best.
Benefits of High Cohesive Silicone Gel Implants
Saline implants have, in some women, resulted in visible and unattractive rippling and wrinkles of the skin on the breasts. More commonly, one can also feel ripples of the implant. While this happens more often to very thin women or women with very little breast tissue than to women with more breast tissue coverage for the implant, it is, non-the-less disheartening. Women have breast augmentation to improve their image and self-esteem, so any defect in her once-shapely breasts is counter-productive.
The high cohesive silicone gel implants are a safe and more aesthetic alternative to saline implants. Not only do gel implants look more natural, they feel more like natural breasts and are less likely to ripple.
Dr. Broadway and Dr. Cisco prefer to implant only gel implants in order to decrease the incidence of the ripple and wrinkle issue. Silicone gel implants, available in different shapes and profiles, allow our surgeons to better address your breast implant performance concerns and while offering cosmetic results closer to your ideal.

Making the Decision to Replace Your Implants
Ultimately, the benefits of silicone gel implants compared to saline implants depend on the personal characteristics of each woman’s body type. These will be discussed during your personal consultation and evaluation so that you know which choice will give you the best results as determined by your goals.
If it has been many years since your original implant surgery, now might be the right time to consider replacing them with silicone gel. If your implants are more recent but you are not satisfied with the way they look or feel, you might find that replacing them gives you better results.
