Edelstein Cosmetic - Just as there are many reasons for women to want breast augmentation surgery, there are a number of different implants that provide a variety of results. Manufacturers continue to develop new products that offer a better appearance and reduce the risk of complications. The differences between implants include the material they are made from, the shape and the texture. Although the best course of action is to discuss your individual needs and goals with a qualified cosmetic surgeon highly experienced in performing breast augmentation, Dr. Kunaal Jindal provides several guidelines regarding different types of implants. • Saline breast implants are a silicone shell filled with sterile saline solution. This type of implant comes with a higher risk of developing folds or wrinkles that show through the skin. In the event of a rupture, the breast will look deflated but the saline will simply be reabsorbed by the body since it is essentially the same fluid used in IV solutions. • Silicone Cohesive Gel implants have the same silicone shell but the internal contents are firmer and cohesive. What this means is that even in the event of a rupture, the implant will hold its shape. Silicone implants provide a more natural look and feel and are less likely to have a wrinkled, rippled appearance. • Round implants have an equal distribution of volume around the central point of maximum projection. • Shaped or Anatomic Implants are more natural looking with a lowered point of maximum projection with a greater concentration of volume in the lower part of the breast.
