Types of breast implants

we present breast implant for breast surgeries

In esthetic surgery, breast implants are used fom 2 main reasons: they are used in breast enlargement procedures and in their correction or shaping (mastopexy, breast asymmetries).

First mention regarding breast implants are from documents made by German doctors in 1865. The improvement of implants belongs to 2 American surgeons.

In 1961 Frank Gerwo and Thomas Cronin in cooperation with one consortium, created known today silicone implants, and a year after they performed first procedure for placing these implants into a patient. Over time, implants have been successfully improved and have become safer and safer.

We have 2 basic shapes of breast implants:

  • Round implants - the most simple type of breast implants. As their name indicates, they are of round shape, therefore in a cross-section they have regular shape,
  • Anatomical implants - they are properly contoured, which causes that they perfectly fit to the shape of the breast and they successfully mask the upper edge of the implant.

A lot of information was written about the risk of breast implants. According to various hypotheses, the implants have become a cause of an increased risk in some diseases. Scientific research confirms instead, that using breast implants is fully safe and has no influence on patient's health. Any possible postoperative complications cannot be connected to the performed surgery.

Which type of implants is the best for me?

The patient should not decide by herself about the type of implants she wants to have placed. The surgeon, during medical consultation, decides about the most proper implants that will be used for the surgery.

Types of breast implants:
  • Silicone implants (filled with silicone gel),
  • Smooth implants,
  • Textured implants.

The most common ones (almost 90% of procedures) are impants filled with silicone gel, due to the fact that they are the most natural looking ones, and their consistency is similar to patient's own tissues.

Nowadays, there are many different companies which produce breast implants. The most popular ones are: Sebbin, Mentor, Mcghan, Euro Silicone, ADV, Rofil, Silmet.
It cannot be determined which of these brands is the best one and definitely outperforms others with its quality and functionality. There are, however, some institutions that control the quality in companies dealing with production and distribution of breast implants. Many producers give a lifetime warranty on materials used for implants production in order to guarantee our patients a full satisfaction and safety.
