The Different Implants
There are four main types of Bröstförstoring (Breast augmentation): silicone, saline, cohesive gel, and memory foam. All have their advantages and disadvantages.
Silicone implants are the most common form of breast implant. They are made of medical-grade silicone that is soft when palpitated but firm enough to stay in place when inserted into the body. This type is often preferred because unlike saline or gel implants, it does not contain any water which may cause an infection.
Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water instead of silicone or gel. They are generally less expensive than other implants but can cause rippling or wrinkling in the skin overlying the implant site if not properly placed under the muscle. Cohesive gel implants are also generally less expensive than other types and offer many of the same benefits as silicone implants without requiring a surgical procedure to remove them afterward.
Memory foam offers some advantages over other types by being able to mold itself to fit your unique shape more closely than other types while remaining stable inside your body.
Important ConsiderationsWhen Choosing A Breast Implant
When you’ve decided to have breast implants, it’s important to consider what type of implant is best for you. Will you be happy with larger and firmer breasts? Do you want something that will look natural? Or do you want a breast implant that will give your breasts a more natural feel and shape? All of these considerations should factor into the implant that will work best for you.
The first thing to think about when selecting an implant is the desired size and shape of the breasts. There are implants available in various shapes and sizes including round, teardrop, or anatomically shaped.
The patient’s desired size also plays a big role in choosing an implant as different sizes come with different price ranges. Some patients might need a higher-priced implant because they need a larger size or because they have already undergone Bröstförstoring (Breast augmentation) surgery before and want to maintain symmetry.
It’s also important for patients to consider whether they want silicone or saline implants as both have their strengths and weaknesses. Silicone implants are softer than saline so they will feel more natural but there is some concern as to whether silicone can affect fertility or cause other long-term health
Your Final Decision
Implants that contain silicone gel, like the NatrelleMemoryShape and Cohesive implants, are often used in breast augmentation. Silicone implants contain a silicone-based filler that is placed inside the breast implant to provide more volume for those who desire fuller breasts. Silicone gel implants can be used to correct asymmetry as well as to increase breast size.
The main advantage of silicone gel implants is that they can be filled with saline or silicone during surgery to allow the surgeon to customize the implant. This means they can be adjusted during surgery if needed and they can also be replaced if needed without replacing the entire implant.
The disadvantages of silicone gel implants are that they have a higher risk of rupturing than other types of breast implants due to leaking or rupture, although this risk decreases over time after the first three months. Other disadvantages include possible infection because of exposed filler material and adverse cosmetic changes because of exposed filler material, such as distortion over time or rippling in the implant surface.
