Types of Breast Implants

Dr. Lettieri has had great experience in the area of cosmetic and reconstructive breast implant surgery. His research in the area has been presented at several regional and national meetings and been published in major medical journals. This interest has involved participation in virtually all available breast implant programs which has allowed for his patients to have many choices in their selection of breast implants for cosmetic and reconstructive needs.

Silicone Implants

 

Dr. Lettieri is able to offer several types of silicone gel breast implants including:

 

  1. Anatomic Cohesive Gel devices: Dr. Lettieri is fortunate to have been among the first few surgeons in the country to use these devices.  He has been an evaluator for both the Allergan Inamed style 410 cohesive gel device and the Mentor CPG contour profile device.  These implants are very versatile being available for patients seeking first time breast augmentation or reconstruction, or revision of previous breast implant surgery.  Among breast reconstruction patients these implants have a tremendous benefit because of the natural shape, soft feel and excellent durability.

  2. Round Silicone Gel-filled implants are now widely available for both breast augmentation and reconstruction patients.

Saline Implants

 

Saline filled breast implants also serve a very important role in breast implant surgery in his practice. He is able to offer this to all of his cosmetic patients who prefer not to have Silicone implants.

 

Dr. Lettieri feels that it is very important for him to personally review the options available to each breast implant patient so that the type of implant, shape, and size can be customized to there unique needs.
