How do I choose between Silicone Gel Implants versus Saline Implants and what size Implants should I pick?

When you come for your breast augmentation consultation, you will be meeting with both Dr. Dean Kane and his wife Lauri Kane. Lauri is the patient educator and will explain the differences between the two types of implants, silicone gel and saline implants. Lauri has 25 years of experience educating women about the entire breast augmentation surgery and specifically in helping each woman select just the right implant for their body.

This Maryland woman had a breast augmentation with Mentor Saline Implants 375cc. Placement of the implants was through the areolas and under the muscle or submuscular.

Lauri spends tremendous amount of time learning what each woman is trying to achieve with her breasts, going through pictures of breast augmented women to gain a full understanding of their perceptions of their desired breast size. In Dr. Kane’s Baltimore Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we have all the styles, shapes and sizes of every implant so that women can touch and feel and “try on” the implant to see what looks right for the patient’s body.

Lauri has been guiding women to select the perfect style, shape and size for over 25 years. Women really appreciate another woman’s input and guidance in selecting their breast implant size. The patients of Dr. Kane’s Practice feel extremely appreciative of having a strong involvement in deciding about their own implants and having Lauri’s expertise in helping them make their decision.

About Breast Enhancement Surgery in Baltimore, Maryland

When Dr. Dean Kane performs breast enhancement surgery with Silicone or Saline Breast Implants, he generally places the implants under the muscle of the woman’s breast. Dr. Kane also makes his incision within the edge of the brown areola so the scars stay beautifully well-hidden and almost unperceivable. By placing the silicone or saline implants under the muscle rather than over the muscle, Dr. Kane needs to make a special pocket so the implant will fit within the woman’s breast. Dr. Kane feels the under the muscle approach gives women the best appearance for a breast augmentation because the top of the implant is strategically hidden by the muscle and therefore the top edge is never seen. The breasts have a smooth look to them rather than seeing an actual edge of the implants. 

After pregnancy and breast feeding, this Baltimore woman desired a Traditional Breast Lift with Augmentation using Mentor High Profile 400cc Silicone Gel Implants.

Breast Augmentation Scar Placement

Whenever possible, Dr. Kane chooses to make surgical incisions along the bottom edge of the patient’s brown portion of the areolas, where post-surgical scars will be nearly invisible. Other possibilities include under the breast along the crease and in the armpit.  The Maryland plastic surgeon places the silicone or saline implants under the chest muscle to create a pleasing, natural slope to the chest wall. Once the implants are in place, the incisions are stitched closed with small sutures. The outer most layer is closed with special medical grade skin glue so that you will never need to have any stitches removed. When the scar is placed in this lower rim of the brown part of the nipple, the scars are hardly ever seen.

Where does Dr. Dean Kane perform his Baltimore Breast Augmentations?

For Dr. Kane’s Baltimore breast enhancement surgeries, he performs his surgeries in his private fully accredited operating room in the comfort of his beautiful Center for Cosmetic Surgery. Dr. Kane uses twilight to deep sedation anesthesia to put his patients into an extremely comfortable sleep. Patients are completely breathing on their own throughout surgery and wake up without any pain or nausea. The average procedure takes two hours.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

In regard to breast implant recovery, because Dr. Kane most often places the implants under the muscle there is generally more discomfort and therefore the recovery time is usually 2 weeks. The muscle where the pocket has been created to accommodate the implant becomes very sore. But to reduce this pain, Dr. Kane injects pain relieving medication into the chest muscles during surgery to minimize discomfort for 24 hours following breast augmentation. Most patients wake up from sedation feeling pretty good and do well their first night after surgery.

Dr. Kane believes in giving women medication that relaxes the muscle so women have less pain. He has a set way of providing medication for the women so it minimizes the pain, yet needing less narcotic or strong medication that can cause upset stomachs, nausea and vomiting. Breast implant patients typically experience breast sensitivity, soreness and swelling for several days. Sometimes, temporary changes occur in nipple sensation.

 Most women feel much better within 3 nights after surgery. They wake up feeling so much better and often feel they can go to work if it is a sitting type job within 6-7 days of breast augmentation surgery. If women have an active type of job or are mothers needing to lift children then Dr. Kane recommends 2 weeks to be able to go back to an active routine. Lifting should always be kept to less than 10 pounds for at least 2-3 weeks. Within a week to ten days, most women feel they can resume many of their normal activities, enjoying a more curvaceous,sexy bust line and a natural, sculpted look.
