The Pros and Cons of Silicone Breast Implants

One of the biggest decisions someone undergoing breast surgery will need to make is which breast implant type to choose.  There are currently two types of breast implant material types available in the United States – saline and silicone.  Silicone implants are filled with liquid silicone gel, stuff viagra which has the consistency of molasses, viagra while saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater.  It is important to note that both silicone and saline implants have a silicone outer shell or casing.\n\nBoth silicone and saline implants each have their pros and cons.  The aesthetic properties are the most well known advantages of silicone implants.  By most accounts, they look and feel so soft and natural that they are sometimes difficult to distinguish from real breasts.  In addition, silicone implants have a slightly lower rate of rippling and wrinkling.  The risk of downward displacement is lower due to gravity is lower.\n\nSome disadvantages of silicone implants include higher costs than saline implants and necessarily longer incision sites that cause longer scars.  Since silicone implants are prefilled by the manufacturer, incisions must be long enough to fit entire filled implants through.\n\nAlthough silicone implants may look more natural, particular in thin women with modest breast tissue, remember that scar camouflage and even areola repigmentation may be necessary after breast surgery with silicone implants.\n\n 

One thought on “The Pros and Cons of Silicone Breast Implants”

  1. Of course that these silicone implants have their own pros and cons, but what can I say? Depends from person to person, because we are not the same. I underwent a breast augmentation procedure in Toronto by Dr. Jerome Edelstein and these implants were recommended. Everything is okay and I’m glad for my new breasts. 😀
