Saline Breast Implants & Silicone Breast Implants

There are many reasons why you might be considering breast implants, and you need to know the facts. Your cosmetic surgeon can help you make the right choice in breast implants.

Why women consider breast implants

Breast implants may be a necessary choice because of breast cancer. They may also be considered for cosmetic reasons because:

  • Breasts may be undersized in relation to body size
  • Breasts may be unequal in size or not symmetrical in shape
  • Weight loss may have caused breast sagging
  • Breast shape may need to be enhanced after pregnancy and breast feeding

What breast implants can do for you

A woman’s breasts are important to her overall appearance. Having breast implants can:

  • Boost your self-esteem
  • Build your self-confidence
  • Enhance your sex life
  • Make you look more attractive
  • Make your clothes fit better

Important factors to consider when you are thinking about breast implants

When you are consulting with your surgeon, there are some considerations, including:

  • The size of implant you want
  • The type of incision which is best for you
  • Whether a round or contoured implant is best for you
  • Whether a smooth or textured implant is best for you
  • Whether a silicone or saline implant is best for you

Advantages of saline or silicone implants

There are some important similarities and differences in implants. Consider:

  • Both implant types are considered safe
  • Both implant types can last 10 to 20 years or more
  • Silicone implants may feel more like a natural breast
  • Saline implants provide an extra layer of safety because if the implant ruptures, the saline is absorbed back into your body

What you need to do after breast implant surgery

After your surgery, remember to:

  • Avoid movement for the first couple of days
  • Avoid lifting heavy objects for at least two weeks
  • Avoid raising your arms above your head for at least two weeks
  • Avoid strenuous activity for at least the first six weeks
