Breast Implants - Which Type, Shape and Size Is for You

Every year millions of women around the world undergo breast augmentation through implants to increase the size of naturally small breasts. Most women also opt for breast implants to restore the shape or volume of breasts lost due to pregnancy, breast feeding and aging. Some women are also using these silicone shell prosthesis for regaining their assets after a mastectomy or lumpectomy.

Whatever the reason may be behind your decision to undergo breast implant surgery, one question will run through your mind and that is “which type, shape or size will suit you the most”. Well this is a technical question and you can never sort it out alone, without seeking help from a board-certified experienced cosmetic plastic surgeon. However, before you make an appointment with a plastic surgeon it is important that you know your options. In this article we will discuss different types, shapes and sizes of breast implants used for Breast Augmentation or reconstruction.


Types of Breast Implants:

There are two types of Breast implants used for breast enlargement and reconstruction: Silicone Breast Implants and Saline Breast Implants. While the outer covering of both types of implants is a rubbery silicone shell, the difference is fluid filled in them. The former are filled with silicone gel, whereas saline implants are filled with a sterile saline (Salt and water) solution. Furthermore, silicone implants come prefilled while saline implants are filled after being inserted. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages but the former are considered more natural as they look and feel nearer to breast tissues.


Breast Implant Shapes:

Breast implants are available in two distinct shapes, round and teardrop. Round implants are circular in shape and can be slightly shifted after Breast surgery, without disfiguring the breast contour. Teardrop implants, on the other hand, are thinner at the top and wider at the bottom, similar to the shape of a natural breast.


Breast Implant Size:

Breast Implant size is measured in cubic centimeters. The larger the implant size the higher will be its volume in cubic centimeters. Choosing the right size implant is the most important decision that a woman undergoing breast implant surgery has to make. It is pertinent to mention here that the implant sizes have nothing to do with traditional cup sizes. You just tell your desired cup size to the surgeon and he will help you decide which implant size will be right for you.
