You may be curious about the differences between different types of breast implants. You will most likely be offered the option of silicone gel or saline implants when you visit a surgeon. When women refer to “silicone” breast implants, they mean silicone gel breast implants. Every implant has a silicone shell. However, the material used to fill it-silicone gel or saline-will affect what gets into your breast tissue if there is a rupture.
Ideal Implant VS Gummy Bear
Gummy Bear Breast Implants
Implants for gummy bears are made from either form-stable or cohesive silicone.
Pro: They give a natural appearance to women with little breast tissue. These implants are also famous for breast reconstruction.
Con: This material feels more firm and natural than traditional implants. This is usually most evident at the breast’s bottom.
Gummy bear implants have been gaining a lot of attention in recent years. Dr. Newman believes that traditional silicone implants are a better choice in many cases.
IDEAL IMPLANTS have an outer silicone shell that contains multiple smaller chambers filled with saline.
Pro: IDEAL IMPLANTS combines silicone implants’ natural feel and safety with the convenience of saline. Multiple nested shells reduce rippling, and the saline filling can be absorbed harmlessly in rare cases of rupture.
Con: These implants are more expensive. Although they are not budget-friendly options for women, many women find the results worthwhile.
The Journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons published a study that found IDEAL IMPLANTS has a high level of patient satisfaction and a low risk of complications like rupture or capsular contracture.
The downside to silicone breast implants or “Gummy Bears” breast implants
Women prefer silicone gel breast implants because they feel more natural and don’t ripple like saline. These implants can be dangerous for women, so it is essential to know the risks. These include:
- Silent Ruptures: Without an MRI scan, it is impossible to determine if silicone-gel breast implants have sprung. Silent ruptures are called “silent” because the silicone gel can leak into the surrounding tissue. This will need to be repaired. This can happen repeatedly.
- MRIs: The FDA recommends that women with “gummy bears” breast implants undergo an MRI every two years to detect a silent leak. These MRIs can be costly and are not usually covered by insurance.
- Price Difference: Although prices and insurance coverage can vary, it is important to consider the cost of an MRI every two years.
Structured Breast Implant
Most women love silicone breast implants and saline implants. The new technology assures women that a rupture can be seen by simply looking at their breasts. Additionally, the body can safely absorb the saline. The implant’s internal structure is designed to keep its natural form and not ripple. Women can now choose between the beauty and security of silicone gel breast implants or the comfort of saline breast implants. This is a massive change after years of having to make difficult choices.
How do you choose the right breast implant size?
Cup Size and Implant Size are not the same.
Although some recommendations on how large an implant should be to achieve a particular cup size, implants are not the same as bra cups. You can expect to increase one or two cups for every 150-200 cubic centimeters. It depends on the bra you are wearing and your body measurements. Brands may vary in cup sizes. A 36C brand might have a 34D brand.
Implants are most commonly found in the 300cc-400cc range, but implants are available from 100cc-800cc in the US.
Take your frame into account.
Women want implants that look natural. A size that is right for you is key to natural-looking implants. A smaller implant can give a shorter woman a more natural appearance than one larger for a woman of greater height.
You can avoid back and shoulder pain caused by breasts that are too big.
Take into consideration your lifestyle.
It would help if you also include your lifestyle. Consider how active you are. It’s possible to keep running, playing sports, and exercising with larger breast implants. However, it may not be as straightforward or as comfortable.
Your style should be taken into consideration. Your tops, swimsuits, and dresses will be affected by augmentation. Smaller implants might be the best option if you don’t like wearing a bra or prefer to wear tops and dresses that are difficult to fit. You might choose larger implants if you want tops and dresses that require more breasts.
Consider how comfortable you feel about people taking notice of your new figure. Smaller breast size is best if you want to hide the fact that you had breast augmentation. You can go a little bigger if you are comfortable with people noting your more prominent breasts.
The Future is in Your Eyes
Breast implants can last 10-20 years before needing replacement. Consider your life in five, ten, or twenty years when deciding the size of your breast implants.
