Types of Breast Augmentation Options
Let’s explore various breast augmentation implants that may help you enhance your figure and learn about their unique benefits to help you make an informed decision.
Saline implants are filled with sterile saline (saltwater) solution, which closely resembles the natural fluids found in the body. These implants are inserted into the breast pocket while empty, then filled with the saline solution after placement. This allows for a smaller incision and greater customization of implant size.
Saline implants are a popular choice for women who prefer a firmer feel to their augmented breasts. However, there is a higher risk of visible rippling and they may not feel as natural as other implant types
Silicone implants are pre-filled with a cohesive silicone gel that closely resembles the feel of natural breast tissue. These implants come in various shapes, sizes, and textures to provide a customized fit for each patient. Due to their more natural feel, silicone implants are often preferred by women who desire a softer and more natural-looking result.
Silicone implants are also known as ”gummy bear” implants due to their thick, cohesive gel filling that maintains its shape. However, they do require a larger incision than saline implants, and they are more expensive.
Mastopexy: Breast Lift
While not an implant, a breast lift (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure that can be combined with breast augmentation to achieve optimal results. A breast lift raises and reshapes sagging or drooping breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. This procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with breast augmentation to enhance the overall appearance and contour of the breasts.
Fat Transfer “Natural” Breast Augmentation
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses your own body fat to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. Fat is harvested from another area of your body (such as the abdomen or thighs) through liposuction, then purified and injected into the breasts. This procedure is an excellent option for women who desire a more natural-looking augmentation with minimal scarring and a shorter recovery time.
