Dr. Aldo Guerra discussing breast implants in Scottsdale, Arizona
Year after year, Guerra Plastic Surgery Center in Scottsdale, Arizona has performed hundreds of breast augmentations with each having it’s own unique experience and personal result. Our extensive before and after photo gallery demonstrates how Dr. Aldo’s extraordinary work continuously exceeds patients’ expectations. Specializing in breast augmentation is not only important for developing an extensive photo gallery, but new patients learn and become educated about the many different kinds of breast augmentation results. All women have different height, shape, and breast anatomy We understand how important it is for you to see the different types of breast implants to choose from, like saline, and the different shapes.
The vast majority of our patients choose silicone breast implants in Arizona, but some of our patients prefer to have saline breast implants. Saline breast implants have some advantages over silicone which primarily involve flexible fill. The ability to fill the breast implant to the specific requirements and establish symmetry is critically important for some patients. In other words, while silicone breast implants have been designed for a fixed volume 25 cc apart, saline breast implants can be filled by 1 cc increments until a more ideal symmetry is established. For better symmetry, saline might serve some patients better. I also highly recommend saline breast implants in cases where the patient desires an extremely perky feel and fake appearance.

Saline breast implants are designed slightly different than silicone breast implants. Depending on the manufacturer, most saline breast implants have a slightly thicker outer shell. This is a contributing factor in how firm they feel. Saline is medical grade salt water solution. One important characteristic of water is that it is not compressible and therefore will feel firmer under pressure.

Mentor®’s Volume Sizing System (VSS) consists of 18 uniquely shaped volume sizers that have been shown to provide a realistic preview of breast size. There’s no way to predict the exact cup that a certain implant size can create for a patient, but this sizing system has been tested against other popular methods and found to provide the most accuracy.
Using this system, we are able to simulate 24 different sizing volumes, ranging from 150 to 775 cc. The soft volume sizers fit easily into a bra and while you are in the office, a realistic representation of your new cup can be simulated. With saline breast implants, you can add in 1 cc increments and have a lot more size options than what the VSS can show you. We recommend patients bring shirts or tops you normally wear and try the sizers several times before having breast augmentation surgery. Patients have a much easier time deciding on the most appropriate implant size with this system. In one study, 83% percent of breast surgeons indicated the volume sizing system had a high positive impact on their patients while reducing the need to operate again for size issues. It’s simply the most accurate way to size a breast cup.

Dr Aldo Guerra did my Breast Augmentation, and I am so happy with my results! I was very nervous about having surgery, and had consultations with 5 different plastic surgeons. Dr Aldo Guerra and his staff spent the most time with me and answered all my questions. They also had way more before & after pictures than any other surgeon. The day of the surgery, Dr Aldo Guerra saw me before the surgery, reviewed the surgery plan & made me feel very comfortable. He & his staff saw me several times after my surgery to make sure I was healing properly. I went from a small B cup to a small D, just as planned! I am so happy with my results, and I am so grateful for Dr Aldo Guerra and his team! If you are considering breast augmentation, I highly recommend Dr Aldo Guerra!
Saline and silicone breast implants are both FDA-approved and effectively and safely enlarge a woman’s breast. In our office, we believe in patient education, and we respect a patient’s right to choose freely from the different breast implant options available. Some plastic surgeons do not apply this same philosophy in their practice and limit their patient’s choices.
Dr. Aldo offers both saline and silicone breast implants.
