Who is a good candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery is perfect for women who want to enhance the size and volume of their breasts, address asymmetry between the breasts, and restore breast volume after pregnancy and lactation.
You may be a candidate for breast implants if you are healthy and over the age of 18. If you are pregnant or a new mother, you should not have a breast enlargement procedure until after you are no longer breastfeeding.
What are the different types of Breast Implants?
Breast implants are silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. Both silicone breast implants and saline implants are safe, and each offers its own advantages.
Saline implants are firmer in comparison to silicone implants. The saline solution can also be safely absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture. Because saline implants are inserted in the breast while empty and then filled once in place, a smaller incision is required.
Most women, on the other hand, prefer silicone implants over saline implants. This is because they have a more natural appearance and feel. Silicone implants are known for their soft silicone gel, and they are filled with silicone gel before they are put in the breast pocket.
Gummy bear implants are a newer type of silicone implant and are quite popular because of the advantages they offer over traditional silicone implants. They are also known as form-stable implants. When gummy bear implants experience a rupture, they maintain their shape quite well, and there is no leaking of the material, because they are filled with a denser gel.
