Types of Breast Implants
Breast augmentation and asymmetry correction typically require breast implants to change a patient’s natural shape, size, and volume. However, there are several options for breast implants that offer different benefits and drawbacks. The first thing to consider is the implant material, which is either silicone or saline. Specifically, silicone implants contain a gel material, while saline implants contain fluid.
With silicone breast implants, the gel material looks and feels more like natural breast tissue, which some patients may prefer for their final results. Alternatively, saline implants are more individualized to patients. Despite the differences, neither type of breast implant lasts forever and they will eventually need to be replaced at some point in a woman’s lifetime, which will depend on how the body responds to them.
Dr. Ditesheim has used the current generation of silicone implants for more than 15 years and his goal is to enhance or restore breast volume for natural beauty, rather than to simply make the breasts bigger. This is achieved by using a wide range of different sizes, shapes, fills, and projections, which is why silicone tends to be preferable over saline.
If it’s larger breasts you desire, breast augmentation can help you get just the look you’re looking for. Dr. Ditesheim will help you choose the right breast implants to achieve a natural-looking increase in breast size that enhances your natural proportions. His experience and expertise helps people feel at ease and confident they’ll get a naturally beautiful result from their breast surgery Charlotte.
Breast Implant Options
There’s plenty of chatter about what type of breast implant is best, but the answer is, whatever gives you the results you desire. Each implant type has its advantages and unique characteristics. What it boils down to is the specific look and feel you’d be happiest with.
Pregnancy, weight loss, or aging can result in stretched, sagging breasts. A breast lift cosmetic surgery can restore a more youthful, attractive breast shape while helping you look and feel better in clothing and make bras more comfortable.
Breast Lift with Implants

This popular post-pregnancy or post-weight loss aesthetic surgery can restore a breast contour you’ll love, and boost confidence too!
Having breasts that are too large for your body can result in back, neck, or shoulder pain, limit your clothing choices or even keep you from fully enjoying an active lifestyle. Whether you’re suffering from these symptoms or you just wish you had smaller breasts, Dr. Ditesheim can help you reduce to a size that better fits your body and your lifestyle with this potentially life-changing surgical procedure. His approach is distinguishable from others in the surgical field because it focuses on eliminating discomfort, minimizes scarring, and allows a patient to determine which size feels right for her, rather than arbitrarily reducing them to the smallest size in order to satisfy insurance requirements. This makes him the best choice for breast surgery patients in Charlotte.
Lollipop Breast Reduction
A lollipop breast reduction is an advanced technique that results in less noticeable scarring while lifting, reducing, and reshaping the breasts. This relieves symptoms like neck, back, or shoulder pain and offers a shorter recovery period compared to other breast reduction techniques. It also serves to reshape and reduce the breasts so that they are proportional to the patient’s body.
