Are you looking to make a real change to your body and the way you look? Or perhaps you’re about to undergo breast augmentation for the very first time.
Whatever reason you have for wanting a change, one thing is for sure. There are a vast number of options when looking at breast implants.
But with so much choice, how do you decide which is best for you? Take a look at the most common types of breast implants to help you decide which is the right one for you. Read on!
Smooth Breast Implants
It is the most popular type of implant, and for a good reason. They provide a natural look and feel and are less likely to ripple or leak than their textured counterparts.
However, they may require more frequent touch-ups or replacements over time, as the smooth surface can degrade.
Textured Breast Implants
Textured breast implants are less popular, but may be a better option for some women. They are less likely to ripple or move around inside the breast and can provide a more stable result.
However, they may be more likely to leak or cause infection, and may not look or feel as natural as smooth implants.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants are a type of breast implant that consists of a silicone shell filled with sterile saline (salt water). They are available in a variety of sizes and shapes and can be used to achieve a variety of aesthetic results.
It is less likely to cause rippling or wrinkling of the skin than silicone implants and is considered to have a lower risk of causing capsular contracture (scar tissue around the implant that can squeeze and distort the implant). They are also less expensive than silicone implants.
However, it is not as natural-looking or feeling as silicone implants and may require more frequent revision surgery than silicone implants.
Silicone Breast Implants
In order to achieve the look they desire, some women opt to have silicone breast implants inserted. This involves a cosmetic surgeon making an incision in the breast and then inserting an implant filled with silicone gel.
It gives a more natural feel and looks than other breast implant types. Recovery from this type of surgery is usually fairly quick, with most women only requiring a few days to get back to their normal routine.
Cohesive Gel Breast Implants
Cohesive gel breast implants are breast implants that are made of a gel that is said to be more cohesive, or “sticky,” than the traditional silicone gel that is used in most breast implants.
The main advantage of cohesive gel implants is that they are less likely to leak or rupture than silicone gel implants. This can give women peace of mind knowing that their implants are less likely to cause problems down the road.
Also, it tends to have a more natural feel than silicone gel implants, which can be an advantage for some women.
