Common Questions About Breast Implants

What are my breast implant options?

There are 2 types of fill material available for breast implants for Chicago area women: saline and silicone. You'll also have options for the size, shape, and shell texture of your breast implants. Although Dr. Rios will offer his medical opinion and advice, you are ultimately the one who will choose your implants.

What is the recovery process like?

Dr. Rios employs a unique rapid recovery process for breast augmentation surgery that allows for less downtime and minimal discomfort. The protocol Dr. Rios employs involves no wraps or massage, but rather easy exercises and over-the-counter pain medication such as ibuprofen or Tylenol. Most women find they are able to go out the night of their surgery and can return to work in a couple days.

Are implants safe?

The FDA has approved the use of both saline and silicone gel breast implants. Although these are some of the most tested medical devices in history, all surgery carries some risk and in rare cases an implant may rupture. If saline implants rupture, the body harmlessly absorbs the saline solution. Silicone gel implants hold their shape even if torn or punctured. Regular breast screenings are important for women with silicone gel implants to detect "silent rupture."
