Dr. Robert Brueck of Associates in Cosmetic Surgery presents how he advises women who are considering enhancing their appearance. There are more and more "exchanges" where a woman will come in and choose to change out her implants from saline to silicone. Saline is the proven standard and has been used for many, many years. Silicone, which is newer, provides more of the attributes that a woman will prefer, "It’s a far superior product. It’s softer, it’s far more natural. It’s more forgiving and women by and large love silicone." said Dr. Brueck. The only attribute that saline has over silicone as a material is that if there were an irregularity between the implants, the saline implant can be inflated where silicone cannot. Breast augmentation has now overtaken liposuction as the #1 cosmetic procedure in America. One of the reasons is the 95%+ satisfaction rate. Dr. Brueck also advises, "In 32 years of doing breast augmentations, and again I’ve done hundreds, I’ve never had one patient come in and regret having it done."
