A complete guide to choosing the right implant

Choosing the right breast implant and understanding the procedure of breast augmentations can be a pretty complex and tricky subject for most women who wish to undergo this process. However, a little guidance and technical assistance can help you to make an informed decision about your body.

How to choose between silicone, saline or gummy bear implants?

Most of the people fail to acknowledge the difference between silicon, saline and gummy bear implants, which leads to incorrect selection and subsequently, undesirable results.

Therefore, we’ve discussed each implant with precise details so that you can make the right choice:

Silicone breast implant

Silicone breast implants are a common choice for women because their feel, look and texture resembles a natural breast’s. These implants feel natural because they are filled with silicone gel, which is a thick, sticky fluid that imitates the feel of natural human fat.

These implants are feasible for women of all ages for reconstruction of the breast. But they should only be used by women of age 22 and older for the purpose of breast augmentation.

Saline breast implants

Saline breast implants give an artificial feel to the body because they are implanted when they are empty and are filled with sterile saline solution later on.

For the purpose of breast reconstruction, these implants can be used by women of all ages. But they should only be used by women of age 18 or more for breast augmentation.

Gummy bear implants

Gummy bear implants are the right choice for patients who wish to maintain the shape of their breast for a long period of time. These implants are also called ‘cohesive gel implants’.

Folds and rippling of the breast can also be prevented quite easily by using gummy bear implants because they stay firm, have a distinctive shape and the filling is not likely to shift or move around.

Different shapes of breast implants

Breast implants are usually available in two shapes

  1. Tear-drop shaped implants
  2. Round implants

Tear drop shaped implants

These implants imitate the outline of a natural breast by being thinner at the top and then getting to a thicker projection point near the base of the implant.

Round breast implants

As the name suggests, these implants are circular and have the tendency of shifting slightly after implantation. But the shape of the breast is not distorted by the shifting.

Most plastic surgeons prefer and recommend round breast implants over tear-drop shaped implants.

Size of the breast implants

The most important decision while undergoing a breast augmentation surgery is to choose the right size of the implant and to find one which compliments your body. For this purpose, it is recommended to opt for a surgeon who uses MENTOR, which is a volume sizing system for in-person visualization of different implant sizes and their effect on your body.

The existing breast tissues should also be examined to make sure they will be able to accommodate the implant of the desired size. The size of the breast implant is usually measured in cubic centimeters.

Once the right implant has been selected for your body, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to witness the beauty of an ideal breast augmentation.
