Are you interested in undergoing a breast augmentation – but not sure which type of implant is right for you?
It’s understandable. After all, there are multiple types of implants out there, all of which seem to promise the same results. One type of implant you keep seeing in your research is the silicone implant, which claims to hold its shape better than other implants.
It leaves you wondering: “What are the benefits of silicone implants?”
The Benefits of Silicone Implants
Silicone implants have plenty of benefits; perhaps the biggest benefit is that they’re much tougher than saline implants, meaning you don’t have to worry that your implants will pop due to injury or age. While silicone implants can leak, this happens less often than with saline implants, making it a much more durable option for patients.
Another benefit to silicone implants is that they have much less risk for complications, like rippling. This post-op complication can affect the appearance of your breasts, making it much more obvious that you had work done. Silicone implants tend to stay firmly in place, which greatly reduces the risk for obvious rippling.
Are Silicone Implants Right for Me?
One of the best ways to determine if silicone implants are right for you is to have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. During your breast augmentation consultation, your plastic surgeon will work with you to understand your desired goals, the size implants you want, and your lifestyle. With that information, your plastic surgeon may recommend silicone implants or could recommend another type of implant altogether.
