How Do I Decide Which Type of Breast Implant Is Right for Me?
Choosing breast implants can be difficult, as there are many variations. The definitive breast implant can be subjective as it is based on individual preferences and each women’s goal and expectations. Following are some factors that you might want to look at before having a Breast Implant:
Silicone or Saline?
Silicone breast implants consist of a silicone shell that is filled with saline at the time of surgery. Saline implants require a smaller incision than silicon, whereas silicone implants feel more natural than saline implants. Silicone implants have a solid silicone shell and silicone gel filling. The density and thickness of a silicone-filled gel feel more similar to a breast tissue than saline.
Your Body Shape
When choosing your breast implant profile, your existing breast is a key factor, and to achieve a proportionate, natural appearance, you need to ensure that the implant is marginally smaller or equal to your existing breast width. Many women who choose breast implantation also need a breast lift to correct deflated breast and sagging breasts.
Lighter-built women who have very large breasts might suffer from hip pain and may choose implant reduction to reduce their discomfort.
Smooth or Textured
Implant shell can be textured or smooth. While textured implants have a thicker shell that compensates their rough surface, it has a rippling effect and has a harder feel to it. Smooth implants, on the other hand, have a more aesthetic and natural feel to them.
