What Breast Implant Options Are Available In Wichita Kansas?

Breast implants advancements in technology,  equipment, and improved materials have significantly improved augmentation. Our cosmetic plastic surgery practice in Wichita Kansas specializes in breast augmentation and we use these advancements.

The good news is that today’s breast implants have a more natural overall look, feel, and contour.

All breast implants have a shell made out of a polymer called silicone. Every implant is chosen specifically for the individual. During your complimentary consultation in Wichita, we will customize your desired outcomes based on your body proportions.


These implants are filled with silicone gel. Most patients (~97 %) in our Kansas practice opt for silicone gel implants. The major reason for patients choosing silicone implants is that they feel and look more natural.


These implants are filled with saline a sterile, saltwater solution. Saline is a liquid like water and, as such, the “feel” of it will be similar to a thin envelope filled with water. The result is usually a firmer, rounder appearance. The liquid-filled envelope can also cause visible wrinkling or ripples on the surface of the skin which may also be felt. The silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel so wrinkles and ripples are a lot less noticeable.

Silicone Gel

  • Silicone gel matrix
  • Softer, more natural feel
  • Less wrinkling and rippling
  • Rupture usually requires an ultrasound or MRI to diagnosis


  • Saline-filled silicone shell
  • Firmer
  • Wrinkling and rippling are more common
  • Deflation visible, saline absorbed

Silicone gel and saline breast implants have their advantages and disadvantages. We use both in our practice and can customize the type and size of the implant to help fit different types of outcomes.

What are the most important factors for patients’ considering breast implants?

Here is a list of factors that patients consider most important before having breast augmentation surgery.

  1. Natural-looking results
  2. Natural feeling results
  3. Surgery safety
  4. Costs
  5. Time and Ease of Recovery
  6. Implant safety

Let’s review this list as it pertains to our practice in Wichita Kansas

  1. Our practice is well known for natural-looking results. We will spend time in the consultation and exam to obtain results that fit your proportions.
  2. We use silicone gel implants which feel more natural. We place the breast implants under the pectoralis muscle which places more tissue over the implant and this, in turn, gives a more natural feel. This location is known to allow the radiologist to obtain better mammogram tests.
  3. We perform breast implant procedures at modern high-tech surgery centers. Most surgeries are performed at Andover Surgery Center, a brand-new center built-in 2019, attached to Kansas Medical Center hospital in Andover Kansas. Plastic Surgery Wichita KS
  4. The total price for silicone or saline breast augmentation is only $5250. This includes breast implants, surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, and surgery center fees, unlike many ads on the internet that are too good to be true or only give you one fee and make it look as if that is the total cost.
  5. We are known for performing gentle procedures which makes for easier and quicker recovery. Most patient with office jobs is back to work after an extended weekend. Everyone is different and has different jobs and we will discuss your questions on recovery at the initial consultation.   

The silicone and saline implants that we use are manufactured by Allergan and Sientra and both companies’ implants are FDA approved.

Natural Looking Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgeries in Wichita. It is an excellent way to achieve a more youthful feminine body shape in a single surgery.
Many women considering breast augmentation in Kansas have concerns about how they’ll look and feel after breast implant surgery. It’s common before surgery to have concerns about looking oversized, wide, short or unnatural.
A new study has shown that a ratio of upper breast to lower breast volume of 45:55 achieves the most natural and attractive breast regardless of size. The implant technology today combined with modern surgical techniques allows for an augmentation result that looks and feels natural.

Natural Implant Results

A more natural, subtle look is now a common choice among patients. Women who lead active lifestyles don’t want breasts that will interfere with running, lifting weights, or participating in other sports. Many women ask for a B or C cup, preferring to go up only 1 or 2 sizes. Long distance runners often ask to go from a small A cup to a perky full A cup. As an athlete or active woman, you need to ensure your implants will not interfere with your lifestyle because choosing implants to increase to a size which does not fit your body may do more harm than good.
A natural size choice can help prevent medical issues ( sagging of implants downward and laterally into the armpit). A natural size that fits your body can help maintain a fuller and perkier result long term. Breast augmentation is not a “one size fits all” procedure and should always be adjusted to best match the patient.
There are multiple breast implant options that women can decide between and customize.

These options include :

Size: Patients can opt for a smaller implant that pairs well with their existing breast tissue.
Shape: A moderate shape mimics the shape of natural breasts.
Material: New silicone gel implants are made of thick silicone gel that has a smoother feel than the older saline and saline implants. New silicone gel implants have reduced palpability and visibility through the overlying breast tissue or skin.
Location: Placing the implant underneath the chest muscle can add gentle volume and hide the appearance and feel of the implant. This placement is best for mammograms. Many women choose under the muscle because the breast is more natural to the touch because the tissue under the skin is natural. Over the muscle may be a better choice in some women whose activities develop chest muscles such as in body building. In this case animation problems may develop when the muscles compress the implant.

At your consultation with Dr Rieger, a board-certified plastic surgeon, we can find the best combination of surgery details to create a natural-looking, attractive breast augmentation result. During your private visit in Wichita Kansas simply mention your lifestyle and long-term goals so we can help guide you in selecting your breast implants.
