Every woman has a certain image of how her breasts should look, but often medical conditions or underdevelopment can prevent them from achieving this image, and that’s where breast implants come in.
Breast implants can differ in many ways, including material, shape, and size.
Patients can choose from a variety of breast implant options at Vilafortuny:
Both saline and silicone gel implants are currently available for use in the United States.
Silicone and saline breast implants are the two most popular options for breast augmentation.
The Benefits of Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone gel, an all-natural substance, fills the hollow interior of a solid silicone rubber. Due to the pre-filled nature of silicone breast implants, a more extensive incision on the breast may be necessary for augmentation surgery.
Most patients opt for silicone breast implants because they have a more natural look and feel. But if the silicone ruptures, it won’t be noticeable immediately. To combat this, experts recommend an annual MRI scan for the first three years following the surgery to check for silent ruptures.”
An empty silicone shell is filled with a sterile saltwater solution during surgery, allowing for a more minimal incision in the breast than is necessary with silicone implants. Should a leak occur, the sterile saltwater is completely safe and can be absorbed by the body on its own.
These implants use a more concentrated silicone gel than is used for normal silicone implants. As a result, the gel is more solid and less likely to leak in the event of a break. However, a bigger cut must be made in the skin in order to accommodate them. The implants placed in gummy bears are less likely to rupture, according to research.
Round and teardrop are the two most popular implant shapes. Women typically choose round implants because they provide the most lift, cleavage, and fullness at the breast’s upper pole. Since the implant is identical on both sides, it is less likely to rotate inside your breast. It’s cheaper than the teardrop implant.
The teardrop implant has a fuller bottom and a sloped top, just like a real teardrop. This implant is square in shape and is made from a much more rigid silicone than that used in round implants. The teardrop shape is preferred by women who prefer a more subtle appearance.
There is a wide range of sizes available for breast implants:
It is advised that you take the following into account when deciding on the size of your breast implants:
Medium-sized breast implants are the most practical choice if you’re slim and have naturally small, pert breasts. Large breast implants are not only unattractive and potentially painful to the back, but they can also put unnecessary strain on the back muscles. Women who already have a strong, muscular frame can wear larger breast implants without experiencing any discomfort in their backs.
Mammaries expand during pregnancy and return to their normal size after delivery. Postponing your breast augmentation procedure until after your pregnancy is over will save you from having to go through the process twice.
