Breast augmentation is one of the most sought after plastic surgery procedures in the world. It can help women all over achieve their ideal breast size and appearance, making them feel more confident and secure in their bodies.
What Are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are artificial additions inserted into the breasts to make them appear fuller, firmer, bigger, and more attractive. There are two types of implants available to women who undergo the procedure, saline and silicone implants.
Saline implants are silicone shells that are filled with sterile saline water. Saline implants are filled prior to being inserted into a woman’s breasts during surgery. The amount of saline water used to fill the implant depends on the goals of the patient.
Silicone gel implants are also silicone shells that are filled with a silicone gel. These implants feel more natural than their saline counterpart, but they have a higher chance rupturing and leaking.
Both kinds of implants come in a variety of sizes and textures, each with their own pros and cons, so it is up to you to decide on which type of implant to utilize. Your surgeon will explain the benefits of each and help you make a decision based on your needs and goals.
