What are the types of breast implants?

    Over the time,  there were invented different types of breast implants, created from different materials, different models, different sizes and different aspects. The breast implants are divided into two categories according to their content: saline implants and silicone gel implants.

About Saline Breast Implants :

    These breast prostheses involving the saline implant, are actually composed of a base material with a history behind, that was used to create a silicone casing , to inject the serum. These silicone coatings were used to create prosthetics for those who would undergo a surgery.
A similar type of surgery was, for example, suitable for women who had gone through a mastectomy operation after detection or for prevention of breast cancer. These situations involved the surgically placing of a “pocket” of silicone and a procedure that lasted several months to inject the serum into it.
As it is evident , nowadays, in the case of breast augmentation surgeries with implants, the effective silicone prosthesis is already made, it is in your plastic surgeon hands , and the entire procedure described above should no longer be followed. This prosthesis that the doctor has , only must to be filled with saline serum.

    The disadvantage of such a breast implant is that when you touch does not seem natural, and in case of the prosthesis cracks, the fluid can leak out of it, getting to empty the implant and of course, lessening the bust on this occasion. In this situation you do not have to worry because the elapsed saline serum will cause no harm to the body and your health is not in danger.

About Silicone Breast Implants ;

    Between these two types of breast implants surgeries, this procedure the most recent and the most famous.
What is the difference between silicone gel implants and saline implants? The main difference between the two types of implants and the fact that silicone implants are more advantageous is that the silicone gel is not liquid, and the touch feels much more natural, because it is elastic. Besides this advantage, another would be that if a crack happen in the implant, the silicone gel will not leak from it, nor will change its shape or pattern. The silicone breast implant is most used at international level between the two types of implant.

How many types of forms can have silicone breast implants?

A. Round breast Implant. This type of implant can with be with low profile or high profile.

    The round implant (low profile) has a round shape and a soft content (but there is also another one with a high cohesive type of content that is currently promoted as being more resistant over time and more attractive as shape). From a visual standpoint, it seemed to be settled mainly in the lower part of the breast and less in the top. This type of breast implant is suitable for women who want a natural implant, much softer and more full.

    The round implant (high profile) is obviously more settled on the top of the breast, having placed more silicon content in that part.

B. The anatomical breast implant. This type of implant has a shape of heart and it is the one that looks the most natural because it resembles with the natural breast, being the most recently appeared in the world of plastic surgery breast augmentation. This implant allows for multiple choices and it matches from person to person. The construction of this type of implant resembles with the natural breast, it is narrow at the top and wider at the bottom and if we have a look at its profile it looks like it would be filled mainly in the bottom of the breast.
