Which kind of breast implant is right for you?

Doctor showing silicone implant for breast augmentation to patientHave you been considering breast augmentation? It is a procedure that can do wonders for your figure and your self-confidence. You no doubt have many questions, and one place to start is getting information on the different kinds of implants you have to choose from.


A benefit of saline implants, which are filled with sterile salt water, is that they feel very natural. Another benefit is that if there is a leak in the implant, the saline will be harmlessly absorbed by the body, although the implant will collapse.


Silicone implants also feel very natural, and they come in a wide variety of sizes. If a silicone implant leaks, its design will ensure that it will not collapse; however, after the surgery, you will need to visit your doctor regularly to make sure that the implant is still in good condition.

Ideal implants

Ideal breast implants are a fairly new addition to a patient’s breast augmentation choices. They have many benefits: they look and feel natural and they are made in such a way that they do not wrinkle and won’t collapse. They are also very safe. They have been shown to have a lower rupture rate than other types of implants, and there is no need to check with your doctor to make sure that your implants are intact – you can check for yourself by looking in the mirror. If the implant does rupture, the saline inside will be safely absorbed by the body. Patient satisfaction with Ideal has also been very high.
