Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the U.S. In Manhattan plastic surgery practices, expert surgeons help women meet their goals with breast implant surgery. There are various types of implants and choosing the right option can greatly enhance a woman’s overall appearance and self-confidence.
Popular Breast Implant Types
Women may consider this procedure for a number of reasons: to enhance a small bust line, to reshape breasts that have lost volume and firmness due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, aging, breastfeeding, or to correct asymmetry. Implants are inserted by making incisions inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring.
Saline Implants: Saline-filled implants are inserted in the breast pocket through small surgical incisions. The implants are filled with a sterile saline solution after they are placed. The amount of saline filled will affect the shape, firmness and feel of the breast. In the case of a rupture, the saline solution will be absorbed by the body.
Silicone Gel Implants: As they come prefilled with silicone gel, these implants require a slightly larger incision to place. As gel feels and moves much like natural breast tissue, the outcome is more natural looking with this option.
Gummy Bear Implants: This is a relatively newer advancement in breast implant technology. Fifth generation silicone breast implants are more stable and match the shape of the natural breast. Made of high-strength silicone gel, they offer more fullness to the bottom of the breast. Benefits include increased longevity, less scar tissue, best possible proportions, and less risk of capsular contracture.
IDEAL Implant: This saline implant comes with a unique design that features multiple silicone shells within an outer shell. Its internal structure is designed to control the movement of the saline solution. The benefits of choosing this implant include reduced folding and wrinkling and minimal chances of rupture and deflation. Women can choose from a variety of sizes to meet their goals.
