If you’re contemplating getting a breast augmentation surgery, you may have a lot of questions. One of the things that may cross your mind is what kind of breast implant would be the best implant for you. The smart thing to do will be to consult with a cosmetic surgeon but it also is smart to do your own research about any potential procedure so you have the right questions to ask an expert. When it comes to breast implants, there are different types of implants, including the silicone implant.
Silicone breast implant
A silicone breast implant comes from manufacturers who have perfected the art of creating natural-looking implants. The implants are pre-filled with a jelly-like silicone substance that feels exactly like human fat. The surgeon makes small incisions at the base of the nipple or the inframammary fold then inserts the silicone implant. Though filled with silicone gel, the gel will remain in the implant shell. Even if the gel escapes, it will leak in the breast implant pockets so patients don’t have to worry about silicone gel leaking into their body.
Silicone implants are considered the most natural-looking breast implant. It also is the most popular breast implant. Other breast enlargement procedures such as a breast fat transfer surgery or a saline breast implant requires some breast fat. A silicone breast implant is perfect for patients with little to no natural breast tissue.
How Long Do Breast Implants Last?
Similar to saline breast implants, silicone implants can last 10 to 20 years. However, patients are required to have checkups including an ultrasound or MRI screening to assess the condition of their implants. This ensures the health of the patient. Silicone implants are FDA approved and a silicone implant surgery can be performed on patients who are 22 years old or younger. They are ideal for patients who want an implant that is natural looking, does not require breast fat, can last years, and prioritizes the patient’s health with checkups.
