Which Breast Implants Should You Get?

Monday, December 15th, 2014


Breast ImplantOne of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, breast augmentation can get you as close to perfect breasts as is possible without photoshop. Changing the size and shape of the breast, this surgery can help you feel more balanced or more like yourself, especially after a drastic chance, such as pregnancy, drastic weight loss, an accident, or cancer. Every woman has different goals and different issue for breast augmentation. Whether you’re looking for reconstruction or something purely aesthetic, talk to your doctor about breast implants.

The Three Main Types of Implant Devices:

  1. Saline solution
  2. Silicone gel
  3. Composite filler

Silicone implants as well as saline implants both have a silicone outer shell, but they are completely different in nature.

  • Saline Breast Implants

Saline implants fill the breast sterile with salt water or saline solution. The silicone outer shell is filled with this biological saline, that is perfectly harmless. If the outer shell is ruptured, the saline solution will be absorbed into your body without posing any health risk (although if it does leak, you will need additional surgery to remove the silicon casing).

Saline implants are available for use in women above 18 years of age. They are perfectly safe and provide you with breasts that are full and round.

  • Silicone Breast implants

If you opt for silicone implants, the breast is filled with silicone gel. Because it is a thick and sticky fluid, it gives your breasts a more natural look than saline solution implants do. With these implants, your breasts will look bold and perky. You will feel more alive, especially because your breasts will feel more natural.

Silicone implant is available for use in women 22 and older. As with saline implants, they are safe.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

While each woman has her own reason for breast augmentation, there are many possible benefits of the surgery, such as:

  • Improved self-esteem and a higher level of confidence.
  • Regained feeling of youth.
  • Satisfying look to your body.
  • Corrected shape and size after breast feeding or weight loss.
  • A natural and full look.
