“I only wish I had come to him sooner!!! Dr. Delgado and his medical team have established the paradigm for how to practice medicine. From consultation through all procedural and follow up visits I was made to feel welcome, cared for, and valued.”

Breast Reduction with Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone or normal saline breast implants are sometimes used in breast reductions. This is not a common procedure but occasionally has an application. Some women desire a very youthful appearance of their breast which includes superior fullness. Breast reduction surgery attempts to create this and some techniques work better than others, like the short scar breast reduction. Over time, the breast tissue settles with gravity downward and creates more bottom fullness and less upper fullness. For women who desire the upper fullness, this can be accomplished with a silicone breast implant.

Dr. Delgado’s website (http://www.sanfranciscocosmetic-surgery.com) discusses the pros and cons of silicone breast implants.

Other circumstances for the use of silicone breast implants may include: the woman who has had over-resection of the breast tissue and desires to be larger; the woman who has had a breast reduction and over time, or if additional weight is lost, resulting in an overall decrease in breast volume, may desire an increase in volume and fullness to the surrounding skin envelope.
