Types of breasts implants
The type of implants that will be used for your surgery will depend on your body type and desired results. There are two types of breast implants:
- Saline-filled implants: This type of implant has an outer shell filled with sterile salt water.
- Silicone gel-filled implants: The outer shell of this breast implant has silicone plastic gel.
How the surgery is performed
Your surgeon will administer general anaesthesia during the procedure. Once it has taken effect, your surgeon will make a cut in your breast area. The incision technique will depend on the type of implant and your desired results. The cut can be made along your areola, under your breast, or in your armpit. After the cut is made, your surgeon will insert the implant into your breast pocket. Depending on your body type, the implant can be inserted under your chest muscle or behind the breast tissue. Once the breast implants are properly secured, your surgeon will close the incisions. A gauze or dressing will be applied over your surgical wounds to prevent infection and injury.
