Dr. Mohan offers saline and silicone implants for breast augmentation (breast enlargement and breast reduction). Silicone implants can be round or anatomic in shape.

Saline Breast Implants

Breast Implants DallasSaline implants are approved for use by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) for patients above the age of 18. These implants consist of a saline solution placed inside of an implant with a silicone shell (outer layer).



Benefits of saline implants are as follows:

  • Less expensive than silicone implants
  • Have a smaller breast implant incision
  • Rupture of an implant is easily detectable


Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are approved for use in breast augmentation (enlargement) by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) for patients above the age of 22. These implants are placed much more often than saline implants. The newest generation implants have a highly cohesive silicone gel placed inside of an implant with a silicone shell (outer layer).

Benefits of silicone implants are as follows:

  • The surgical outcome is more natural in terms of look and feel
  • Lower risk of complications related to rippling

What Are Gummy Bear Breast Implants?

These are silicone implants with silicone gel inside that is highly cohesive. To put it more simply, the gel keeps its form, similar to the inside of a gummy bear. If you were to cut the implant in half, you would not notice any silicone gel leaking out. These implants are believed to have a more natural feel and more fullness superiorly.

Round Implants

Round refers to the shape of the implant and most breast implants placed for breast augmentation or enlargement are round. The round shape provides more fullness and volume in the upper part of the breast. All of the major implant manufacturers (Mentor®, Allergan, and Sientra®) make round implants and Dr. Mohan provides all three options.

Anatomic (Shaped)

These natural-looking breast implants have a more natural shape which is why they are called anatomic. The implants are more expensive and more commonly used in breast reconstruction. These implants are also used with women who have very little breast tissue and desire a natural looking breast with more shape and volume.

Smooth vs. Textured Implants

Breast Implant FAQ

What is the best age to get breast implants?

The most common age range for women to undergo breast implant surgery is typically in their 20s and 30s. During this period, women often enjoy optimal health, possess a heightened awareness of their body aesthetics, and demonstrate the mental maturity necessary for considering breast implants.

Should 30 year old breast implants be replaced?

On average, modern implants are crafted to endure over a decade, with the risk of rupture escalating by one percent annually. Consequently, the longer your implants age, the higher the likelihood of rupture or other potential complications. However, it’s noteworthy that in numerous instances, breast implants can maintain their integrity and remain in good condition for 20 years or even longer.

What happens if you never replace breast implants?

Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Raj, who is certified by the board, clarifies that although breast implants have a substantial lifespan, they should not be regarded as lifelong medical devices. Instances of rupture or leakage can occur, and saline implants, in particular, may experience deflation.

Are bigger implants more expensive?

Nevertheless, the size of an implant does not influence its cost. Manufacturers apply a fixed rate for a set of breast implants, irrespective of size. Consequently, a pair of C cup implants will incur the same cost as a pair of D cups, and this pricing consistency holds true for both saline and silicone implants.

Is 35 too old for breast implants?

Any woman desiring breast augmentation is qualified for the procedure, regardless of age.

How long do breast implants last?

It is a commonly held belief that implants need to be changed every so often. The honest answer is it really depends. Some patients can live with the same set of implants for 20 or 30 years. Other women may need to change the implants sooner than that. The important thing to remember is that implants aren’t permanent. As the implants get older, they may weaken or rupture but there is no way to predict if or when this will happen.
