What are breast implants?
Breast implants are medical prosthetics used to change the size and shape of a woman’s breast. Implants are positioned behind the breast tissue during a breast enhancement surgery, to enlarge the appearance of the breast.
A subtle change or a drastic difference can be achieved through breast implants. Many women opt breast implants to enhance the appearance of breasts by a breast augmentation surgery.
What are the types of breast implants available?
Breast implants provide the perfect shape and size of breasts many women wish for. Developments in science and technology have introduced numerous options in breast implants. Women can choose from the many options available to achieve desired shape and sizes of their breasts with the help of a skilled plastic surgeon.
There are a variety of breast implants, which are used in breast augmentation procedures:
Saline Implants: Saline Implants consist of sterile salt water which gives the breasts a desired shape and size. The amount of saline substance present in the silicone shell determines the size, shape and firmness of the breast implant.
Silicone Gel Implants: Silicone Gel Implants are filled with the silicone gel which feels and looks more natural like a breast.
Gummy Bear Breast Implants: In gummy bear breast implants, the consistency of the silicone gel present inside the implant is normally thicker as compared to the silicone gel implants. Gummy bear implants tend to be more tapered towards the bottom and has more projection in the lower part of the implant.
Round Breast Implants: These type of implants make the breasts aesthetically fuller compared to stable breast implants.
Smooth Breast Implants: Smooth breast implants have a thinner shell, these implants feel softer and move freely within the constructed breast pocket. This gives the breast a natural movement. Smooth breast implants also last longer.
Textured Breast Implants: Textured implants are made of a textured shell which is much firmer and stiffer than smooth breast implants. Textured implants are also used to replace implants after capsular contractions. Capsular contractions are breast augmentation complications. These complications develop when internal scar tissue forms a tight or compressing capsule around the breast implant. The result of the contractions is that the implants become hard and stiff.
Soya Bean Oil filled Breast Implant: This type of implant contains soya bean based oil lipid which is used as the filler material in the implant. Shells of these breast implants are same as the silicone shell which is used in other types of breast implants.
