Making the decision to get a breast implant procedure takes a great deal of consideration. You are about to allow a plastic surgeon to physically alter your body in a way that is designed to be permanent. You want to do some real soul searching to be sure that this is what you want. You also want to consider the fact that you are going to require downtime as you recover from your procedure. If you are certain that this change is what you want, you still have more decisions to make. In addition to the size of your implants, you want to consider your options for the different kinds of breast implants that are available to you. Make an informed decision before you move forward with the procedure.
Saline or Silicone Implants: Which is Best?
You have two basic types of implants that you can choose from as you continue your journey toward a fuller bust. You can opt for saline, in which you have a shell that is made from silicone and is filled with a saline solution. If you choose silicone, your shell made from silicone can be filled with a gel that is also made from silicone. Regardless of which type of implant you choose, you have flexibility in size. Silicone implants tend to have a firmness that feels more like they are authentic when compared to saline. Either type of implant may leak.
If you have decided you would like implants, you also want to consider the shape. For example, you could go with round implants or shaped implants. If you have asymmetrical breasts, getting just one breast implant is oftentimes an ideal way to ensure that your breasts finally have the same shape and proportions.
