Breast Implants Jacksonville Fl



Dr. Duffy breast implants jacksonville flDr. Duffy uses saline and memory gel implants, as well as the recently approved “gummy bear” silicone implants. There are pros and cons to each of the types of implants. The type of implant that is selected can play an important role in the final outcome.


For example, saline implants are not pre-filled, so they can be placed through a slightly smaller incision; also, by the nature of their filling, the body will immediately absorb the saltwater solution in the unlikely case that the implant leaks or ruptures.


On the other hand, silicone implants are pre-filled by the manufacturer, and thus require a slightly larger surgical incision for placement. In addition, because the silicone gel is fairly cohesive, it can be difficult to detect a leak and rupture. However, Dr. Duffy does not feel that this is a factor as silicone has been universally established to be safe. Many women find that silicone implants more closely mimic the look and feel of natural breasts when compared to saline implants. In fact, nearly nine out of 10 of Dr. Duffy’s breast augmentation patients select silicone implants because they create a more natural feel as well as a more natural-looking result.


Silicone implants come in round and teardrop shapes. Teardrop implants, also known as anatomically-shaped implants, mimic the sloped curve of a natural breast. Round implants add fuller projection on the upper portion of the breast, a look that many of Dr. Duffy’s patients prefer.

Breast implants jacksonville flWhen it comes to breast augmentation, size truly does matter. Depending on your body’s size and structure – and, of course, your own goals and reasons for having breast enhancement – the size of the implant can have a significant impact on your overall satisfaction with the procedure. Choosing the right implant size can also eliminate the need for additional surgery to “swap” implants for a different size in the future. Size is a personal taste and Dr. Duffy let’s the patient choose when it comes to breast implant size.
