SARASOTA, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- Dr. Jeff Scott and Dr. John Leikensohn offer two types of breast implants at their Sarasota plastic surgery practice. They feel the decision between silicone or saline implants is an individual choice for each patient, depending on her goals and personal circumstances.

Dr. Scott and Dr. Leikensohn, each a Sarasota plastic surgeon, believe patient education about breast augmentation is essential to a successful surgery and achieving results that meet the individual goals of each unique patient.
