Abstract
Patients' options in the United States are currently limited to saline fill ed breast implants for primary augmentation. The amount of fill volume plac ed into a saline implant directly impacts patient outcome in many ways, inc luding the aesthetics and palpation characteristics of the breast, risk of postoperative complications such as visible wrinkling or rippling, risks of implant shell collapse or folding that impact implant shell life, and the necessity of reoperations during a patient's lifetime.
