Types of Breast Implants

At Salzman Cosmetic Surgery and Spa, we offer many types of breast implants, all specifically chosen based on your expected results.

This implant is highly customizable with three different modifications, with a silicone-like gel that is not as stiff. Additionally, it mimics the natural breast feel you may desire.
  • Textured Implants – Textured implants have a rough shell characteristic, which may be more resistant to capsular contractures or the hardening of scar tissue around the implant.
  • Smooth Implants – Unlike textured implants, smooth implant shells are just that: smooth. These may feel more comfortable than the textured shells and cause fewer
