Types of Breast Implants
Our commitment to safety is shown through our actions. We do not use breast implants that contain silicone gel. Instead, we place saline implants and the IDEAL IMPLANT®, both of which have a strong safety profile.
Dr. Graham often recommends saline-filled implants at our Greenville, SC, practice. Saline implants are made of a silicone shell filled with sterile saltwater. In the event of a leakage, the saline is naturally absorbed by the body. When breast implants contain silicone gel, the material stays in place; the only way to know if the implant has ruptured is for the patient to undergo an MRI.
The IDEAL IMPLANT
This breast implant combines the natural feel of silicone implants with the safety of saline implants. The implant is filled with saline, which can be naturally absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture. However, the outer shell more closely mimics the feel of natural breast tissue and silicone implants due to its unique design.
A series of implant shells are nested together so two separate chambers hold the saline. This simple yet innovative internal structure helps control movement of the saline. It also supports the implant edges to reduce folding and wrinkling. In addition, the edges are lower, better fitting the natural curve of the chest wall.
The IDEAL IMPLANT allows women to have the best of both worlds with their implants: they enjoy a natural look and feel, and they have the ability to simply look in the mirror and know the implant is intact.

5-Star Google Reviews "Best Decision Ever!"
Best decision ever! I am 6 months post op. Dr. Graham and his staff are really amazing. I had a "Mommy Makeover" and really could not be happier. Babs prepares you so well before surgery, she answered every question before I could ask. There was little to no pain post op, other than lower back aches. I had one drain, definitively the worst part of the whole experience. But they were great about taking it out as soon as my numbers were good... If you are considering any surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Graham and his staff.View on Google
Could I be happier??? I don’t think so!!! My BR was a journey I had considered for awhile. Met with a couple of plastic surgeons but my heart told me to go with Dr Graham, and let’s just say...I scored a 10 on that decision. Babs, his surgical nurse is amazing, as is the entire staff. As for the surgery, I am 4 weeks out and it has been nothing short of amazing. Dr. Graham is the only physician I found that doesn’t use drain tubes and in my opinion, this is brilliant!! Why do any of them still go this route???? Please, if you’re considering ANY plastic surgery, please go no further than Dr. Sutton Graham...Worth every penny!!!View on Google

Factors to Consider Before Breast Augmentation
Your Overall Health
As with any surgical procedure, you should be in good overall health before undergoing breast augmentation. You should provide a complete medical history so Dr. Graham can evaluate your risk for complications.
PregnancyIf you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should wait a few months. This is recommended because both pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect the shape and size of your breasts.
Feelings About Your Breasts
If you are unhappy with your breasts and the lack of natural breast tissue, this procedure can help. However, you should only undergo breast augmentation to please yourself, not someone else.
ExpectationsYou should have realistic expectations about the possibilities and limitations of breast augmentation. Dr. Graham will help educate you about the procedure beforehand to help you make your decision.
Breast augmentation cannot address significant sagging or the breast tissue and skin. If you are concerned about sagging, Dr. Graham can also perform a breast lift to address the issue.
What to Expect During Breast Augmentation Surgery
The breast augmentation procedure is performed in about one hour at our Greenville, SC, surgery center.
After Receiving Breast Implants
After the breast augmentation procedure at our Greenville, SC, surgery center, you’ll be able to return home to begin the recovery process.
How Can I Manage Pain?
Our surgeon uses special techniques during surgery to minimize post-operative discomfort and speed your recovery. Medication will help manage any post-operative pain. As you recover, you will be able to taper off prescription pain medications and use Tylenol.
When Can I Start Moving Around?
You should have full range of motion in your arms and shoulders right away, and you will be able to walk around the first day after surgery. However, you'll need to avoid strenuous activity for several weeks.
When Can I Return to Normal Activities?
You can drive a car within days of your breast augmentation procedure and return to light work in about one week. Exercise should be avoided for about six weeks, or until you are cleared by our surgeon.
What Type of Bra Should I Wear?
We’ll give you a soft bra to wear for a few weeks after surgery. Avoid wearing a bra with an underwire for a couple of months.
Will I Have Follow-Up Appointments?
Several follow-up office visits are typical, and we’ll be happy to see you for extra appointments if you have questions.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Breast implants may need to be replaced over time. Results are long lasting, but breasts may change with age and gravity. In most cases, results last at least 10 years.
