Key Features To Consider:
When you sit down to outline your goals for breast implants, a good place to start is by considering the characteristics of the implants themselves. What’s going to best fit with your body and make the ideal solution for you? The key features can divided into four categories:
- Size (both cup size and overall bust)
- Shape (round or teardrop implants)
- Profile (how they look)
- Texture (how they feel)
All of the features above are determined at least in part by what the implants are made of, which, in the United States, comes down to one central question: Saline or silicone? Both types of implants are approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and deciding which type is right for you will go a long way in helping you determine the other implant features you desire. Let’s take a look at both types.
Saline Or Silicone? Advantages Of Each:
Saline implants are approved by the FDA for women of age 18 or older. “Saline” refers to the sterile salt water that the implants are filled with. The outside shells are made from silicone rubber. What are the advantages of saline implants?
- Lower cost
- Smaller surgical incisions than are necessary with silicone
With silicone implants, a silicone rubber shell is filled with cohesive gel. The FDA has approved this type of implant for women 22 years or older. What are the advantages of silicone gel implants?
- Lighter weight than saline
- Results are less visible beneath the skin, and look natural
- Results feel natural, too
Silicone implants are available in a range of not only sizes but shapes as well (including "teardrop" implants and "gummy" implants) whereas saline implants are generally restricted to the traditional “round” implant shape.
