Breast Implant Options in Reading PA
All the options you need for the look you want
One of the most important (and fun!) decisions you will make before breast augmentation is which breast implants you will get.
Choose from Silicone Gel, Saline, or IDEAL Implants
You have a variety of implant choices to help you get what you want out of breast augmentation. Depending on your goals and body shape, any of these implants can look very natural and create a beautiful new breast profile. While saline implants were the only FDA approved choice available for years, today the majority of our patients choose silicone gel. The newest generation of gummy silicone gel implants are extremely durable, offer a soft, natural feel, and are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and filling thicknesses. To read about each option, choose from the following:

Natrelle® Silicone Gel Implants
Silicone gel implants feel remarkably similar to natural breast tissue. We use Allergan’s Natrelle® breast implants because of their excellent reputation for safety, quality, and patient satisfaction. These are round implants, available in a variety of sizes, profiles, and fullness levels. Advantages of silicone gel implants include:
- They can look and feel very natural
- They have less chance of visible rippling, particularly in thinner patients
- They are designed to move within the breast pocket without affecting breast shape
Berks Plastic Surgery is Pleased to Offer the Complete Natrelle® Silicone Collection
Featuring highly cohesive gummy bear implants, soft touch, and responsive gel implants, the Natrelle collection offers over 700 breast implant options to help you achieve beautiful, natural-looking results.
Natrelle INSPIRA® Soft Touch Gummy Implants
Allergan’s Natrelle INSPIRA implants offer a smooth, round silicone gel implant option. With a higher fill ratio than other available implant styles, INSPIRA smooth round implants provide additional breast shaping options and reduced risk of rippling and implant visibility—they’re really the best of both worlds between silicone gel and gummy bear implants. INSPIRA implants come in responsive, Soft Touch, or cohesive gel, depending on the desired results of the patient.
The newest gummy bear implant from Natrelle, the INSPIRA Soft Touch is a medium firmness gel implant that offers patients a natural look. Helping to better meet the needs of each and every patient’s unique goals, Soft Touch provides an additional option for breast augmentation, revision, and reconstruction patients.
Because silicone gel implants come pre-filled to a specified amount, the incision required will be a little larger than that required for saline. Their round shape tends to create a fuller upper pole to the breast as well, making these an excellent option for a youthful but natural-looking and feeling breast.
While silicone gel implants do cost more than saline, many patients feel the very natural characteristics of silicone gel are worth the extra cost. How much extra? At Berks Plastic Surgery, cost of breast augmentation with silicone implants starts at about $7,475 whereas the cost with saline starts at about $7,000.
“I went from an A cup to D cup with the newer Silicone GEL implants. I am so much more happier with them. I know it is expensive, but it is definitely worth it and his office works with different payment options to help as well. I just love how I look! Thank you Dr. Reedy and your staff for everything you have done!”*

Saline implants are made from a strong silicone rubber outer shell that is filled to a specified amount to achieve your desired breast size increase. Saline implants offer a few advantages for certain patients:
- Because they are filled after being placed, they require smaller incisions than silicone
- They can be adjusted to a very precise volume to achieve excellent breast symmetry
- Saline implants are less expensive, but just as safe as silicone
Saline implants do have a firmer feel than silicone as well as an increased chance of visible rippling, particularly in patients with thinner skin. Because of these qualities, we usually find that silicone offers the most natural look and feel, and that saline works best for patients with more existing breast tissue to cover the implant.
IDEAL Implant®: NEW at Berks Plastic Surgery
The Natural Look & Feel of Silicone in a Saline-Filled Implant
Our goal at Berks Plastic Surgery is to help you achieve the look you’ll love with confidence. We understand that not every patient wants a silicone filled implant—but almost every patient does want the natural look and feel that silicone gel implants are famous for. If this describes you, the IDEAL Implant may be the perfect option for your breast augmentation.
IDEAL Implants are structured saline implants, containing a series of nested shells and two separate chambers of saline, which are distributed more evenly throughout the implant. This design offers a soft, natural look and feel on par with silicone gel, while also dramatically reducing visible rippling and wrinkling.
Additionally, IDEAL Implants can be placed using a smaller incision than most silicone implants, and do not require routine MRI to monitor for rupture. In clinical trials, IDEAL Implants had some of the lowest rates of capsular contracture and rupture of all implant options. IDEAL Implants come in a wide range of sizes and profiles, allowing our plastic surgeons to accommodate a variety of body types and goals.
