Breast Augmentation Publications

One-Stage Correction of Tuberous Breast Deformity Using Saline Implants: Without the Need for Radial Scoring or Lowering the Inframammary Fold
The American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery
Published April 13, 2019 DOI: 10.1177/0748806819841466. Click here to read the abstract.
Saline implants, which are inserted empty and then filled, can expand and correct a constricted tuberous breast. Silicone implants, which are pre-filled, cannot. Complex, invasive techniques are needed to correct the deformity when silicone implants are used. Dr. Eisenberg reports that breast augmentation with saline implants alone is less complicated approach that produces equally satisfactory aesthetic results.
