Breast Augmentation

Nowadays, breasts are a symbol of femininity and play a very important role in female sensuality.

You may also express with your Body the Beauty of your True Identity… a pretty shape plus volume and firmness. You may obtain all of this with breast implants that will allow you to show that part of your body with more self-confidence.

Types of Implants

A Breast Implant is a sort of silicone synthetic rubber bag or envelope, which may be filled with:

Cohesive silicone gel: 
These implants have a durable and resistant silicone shell, composed of several layers to avoid “gel loss”, which may occur with standard silicone implants. Besides, the filling gel has a thick and cohesive consistency, which does not migrate if the implant breaks.

Its consistency is much more similar to the mammary tissue, than that of saline implants. Silicone gel breast implants also have “shape memory”, which means that they return to their original shape, reducing the possibilities of shell folding or undulating, which are the frequent causes of implant rupture.

A disadvantage of these implants is that they need a longer incision to insert them. Normally, the insertion is performed through an infra-mammary incision under the breast or through an incision in the areola. On the other hand, these implants are more expensive than saline breast implants and, in turn, the cost of breast augmentation surgery may also be higher.

Saline Solution: 
Safety is a great advantage of saline breast implants. If it leaks or breaks, the human body could easily absorb the saline solution, which basically salted water. Besides, in the case of a saline implant, the rupture is almost immediately evident, as the implant deflates quickly.

Saline implants are much less expensive than silicone implants, which may be an important point when calculating breast augmentation cost and accessibility.

A disadvantage of saline implants is that, since they are water-filled, they tend to undulate more than silicone gel implants. This is particularly important in the case of thin women with less mammary tissue to cover the implants.

Saline breast implants also imply risk of capsular contracture. Capsular contracture is a possible complication of breast implants, where scar tissue forms around the implants and presses them. As a consequence of this, breasts become very hard.
