Your Consultation

Your Initial Consultation

Our experienced plastic surgery team wants you to be fully educated about all aspects of the breast surgery. During your initial consultation, our plastic surgeons will meet with you to talk about your goals and answer any questions you may have. They will also tell you what you can expect before, during, and after treatment. Please feel free to bring in pictures of looks that you do or do not like to help us understand your aesthetic tastes. We will also conduct a 3-D image simulation that can give you an idea of the potential results of breast augmentation. The image can be modified with different implant sizes so that you can see a number of potential outcomes. Once you have been examined by our surgeon and you have explored some of the possibilities, they will talk more with you about which option may be the best for your needs.

Options for Breast Implants in Portland, OR

Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, textures, and shapes, including round and teardrop-shaped implants. You can also choose from a number of different profile ranges from low to moderate to high depending on which offers the best amount of forward projection for your goals. There are only two major types of breast implants: silicone and saline. The best options for your needs will depend on which breast implants are ideal for your unique body type and which implants can ultimately meet your goals with natural-looking results. Keep in mind that when you add volume to the breasts, it is as much about enhancing the proportions of your breasts as it is about making them larger. The best choices of breast implants are often those that not only add fullness to the breasts but also serve as a beautiful complement to the overall proportions of your figure.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are made of a silicone outer shell and filled with a silicone gel. These implants are known to be less prone to rippling, and many women choose them for breast augmentation because they often yield results that look and feel very natural. Women with thin body frames can often benefit from silicone breast implants. These implants are approved by the FDA for breast augmentation procedures in women who are at least 22 years of age, and for breast reconstruction procedures for patients of any age.

Silicone and saline breast implants can be positioned in one of two ways for breast augmentation at the Portland-based Waldorf Center for Plastic Surgery.

Patients considering breast Implant at Portland's Waldorf Center have two options for breast implant placement: subglandular (above the muscle) and submuscular (below the muscle). A subglandular placement refers to when the implant is placed between the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle. Submuscular placement is when the implant is placed beneath both the breast and muscle tissue. Your plastic surgeon will work with you to determine the ideal placement for you. An inframammary incision, which is made directly below the breast in the bottom crease between the breast and the chest wall, will be used for breast augmentation.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are composed of a silicone outer shell encasing a saline (salt-water) solution. Saline implants are the most common type of implant in use, and they have helped millions of women across the globe enhance the size of their breasts with natural-looking results. The FDA has approved the use of saline breast implants for breast augmentation procedures in patients at least 18 years old.

In addition to standard saline implants, IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Saline Breast Implants are also available from The Waldorf Center. These advanced breast implant devices bridge the gap between saline and silicone implants, offering the best of both worlds and natural-looking results.

Breast Implant Exchange

It's not uncommon for women to want to upgrade their implants at some point. Breast implant exchange procedures can do just that. While advances in breast implants have made it possible for long-lasting and natural-looking results, the fact is that implants do not last forever, and it is necessary to have them changed out from time to time. Plus, there are other reasons women decide to exchange their implants, including:

  • To upgrade from saline to silicone or vice-versa
  • To increase or decrease breast size
  • To further enhance shape and projection of the breasts
  • To correct any complications or address dissatisfaction from a previous breast augmentation

Breast implant exchange procedures are often less complex and time-consuming than the original breast augmentation procedure. The same incisions can typically be utilized for implantation, leading to no additional scarring in other areas. Dr. Waldorf or Dr. Streu will talk with you about your goals and go over all of your options with you at the initial consultation.
