Breast augmentation is a procedure that can help enhance the overall shape, size, and contour of your breasts. This procedure is performed using implants and gives you plenty of options. The customization of this procedure gives you control over how your results will look.
If you are considering breast augmentation, knowing and understanding your options for implants will make the process much easier. It will also allow you to get the look and feel you want from your procedure.
What Are My Implant Options for Breast Augmentation?
Saline implants are made of silicone shells and filled with a sterile saltwater solution in the operating room. With saline implants, the patient can customize the volume they want, which helps with asymmetrical breasts.
These implants cost less than silicone implants and can be inserted through remote incision sites like the underarms and belly button.
Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel, the most researched implantable device. They are known to be the option that feels the most like natural breast tissue.
Silicone implants are also less prone to wrinkling and are known to last longer than other implant options.
Gummy Bear Implants
Gummy bear implants are a lesser-known option. These implants keep their form even when their shell is stripped away. Since these implants hold their form, one volume of an implant can come in multiple dimensions.
These implants tend to be firmer than the other two options because of the form-holding material that they consist of.
