Dr. Shaun Parson is the go-to breast implant surgeon in Scottsdale because of his extensive training in both plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Should I Get Saline Or Silicone Implants?

There are two main types of implants to select from: saline and silicone. Both are FDA approved and considered safe. What type of implant to choose is a personal decision and dependent on your aesthetic goals. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and do not have to be pre-filled prior to implantation. This makes it easier to go up or down in size to achieve your desired breast volume. Silicone implants are made of a cohesive gel which mimics the look and feel of natural breasts. Silicone implants come prefilled so typically a larger incision is needed to allow for insertion. Which implant largely depends on your body type and the quality of your breast skin.

What Is The Difference Between Submuscular and Subglandular Placement?

Submuscular placement refers to when the implants are placed beneath the tissue and the pectoral muscle. This placement usually reduces the risk of capsular contracture (when scar tissue hardens around the implant.) Submuscular is more common and is ideal for women who have naturally small breasts as the muscle provides coverage and support to the implant. Subglandular is when the implants are placed over the muscle. This is a common placement for women who are athletic and partake in heavy lifting. It prevents the breast implant from being flattened when the pectoralis muscle contracts. This decision is another one that is highly individual and made under the expertise of Dr. Parson.
