3 Different Types of Breast Implants to Choose From

Just like with anything nowadays it seems like there is an option to choose from around every corner. From buying an apple to picking out what kinds of breast implants are right for you, it can sometimes seem overwhelming to make these decisions. However, as one of the most important decisions that you will make to your body, choosing the right breast implant will help to ensure that you get the best results possible. Read on to learn more about the three most common types of breast implants to choose from.

Breast ImplantsSaline
Saline breast implants are made up of sale, or salt water, and can give women a fairly natural look, feel, and appearance. And one of the best parts about saline implants is that if they were to burst or rupture at any point, the saline solution is easily and safely absorbed into your body, so it won’t cause any sort of health issues.

Silicone
Another common type of breast implant is silicone implants. Although they took a hiatus from the plastic surgery world in the 1990’s due to safety issues, silicone implants are now safer than ever. Filled with a silicone substance, these implants give women a natural feel. If ruptured, it often times takes patients a few days to notice a rupture due to how slowly silicone leaks into the body. Just like saline, however, saline is completely safe and dissolvable by the human body.

Gummy Bear Implants
These types of implants are fairly new to the plastic surgery market and offer patients the most natural looking and feeling breasts yet. Made from a high strength silicone gel, gummy bear implants hold their shape and form better than both saline or silicone implants.
