Breast augmentation increases the size and enhances the shape of a woman’s breasts through the use of saline or silicone prosthetic implants.
The breast augmentation procedure is used to enlarge breasts that are naturally small or to restore and improve the appearance and fullness of breasts that have become smaller or sag after pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss or aging.
The Ideal implant is the newest implant that combines the safety of saline with the more natural feel of silicone. The implant has multiple shells (think of Russian nesting dolls), nestled within the outer thicker shell. This allows the saline to be distributed amongst different compartments, creating a baffle effect- like a waterbed. So instead of one bag of saline there are multiple compartments, which create a more natural feel to the implant. This is called a structured implant, due to the compartments, but maintains the safety of saline.
Like saline implants, silicone implants are also made with an elastomer silicone shell, but they are filled with a silicone gel. The latest generation of silicone implants are filled with a thicker gel, modeled to look and feel like a natural breast. These implants are soft to the touch and, over time, they maintain their teardrop shape very well for a natural appearance. Like saline implants, these implants are also usually placed under the chest muscle. Various shapes and sizes of silicone implants are available, giving patients the best possible fit and contour.
Saline implants are made with an elastomer silicone shell filled with a sterile saline solution. They are usually placed under the pectoral muscle. Saline implants can be either round or more teardrop shaped.
