Breast Implants: Most Popular Breast Implants


What Are The Most Popular Breast Implants?

In today’s world, there are so many types of plastic surgery available that it’s hard to determine which are the most popular breast implants.  What’s more is that which implants are most popular are not necessarily the best for each individual woman’s situation.  However, in most cases the popular breast implants are popular for good reasons: they are reliable, effective, and look great and natural.  Here we will list some of the most popular breast implants so that you can know what kinds are available for breast augmentation surgery.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are probably the most popular breast implants today.  Silicone implants had previously been banned by the Food and Drug Administration in the early 1990s due to an association with health complications and problems.  However, in recent years these implants have been reapproved.  Mentor MemoryGel, Allergan Natrelle, and Sientra silicone gel breast implants are the silicone implants currently approved by the FDA as safe to use.  Mentor implants are highly popular silicone implants in the world of plastic surgery breast augmentation today.

The reason silicone breast implants are so popular is because they are able to mimic the look, feel, and texture of the natural breast in a very effective way.  With silicone implants, your breasts look natural and feel natural due to the semisolid nature of the silicone gel in the implants.  The texture is also smooth enough to imitate the smooth texture of the natural breast.  Though they need to be checked regularly after surgery to make sure that no rupturing has occurred, the benefit of silicone is that they will not instantly deflate if a rupture does happen.  Thus, the woman is not caught in an uncomfortable situation where one of her breasts is suddenly drastically smaller than it previously was. 

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are also popular breast implants.  Saline implants do not pose the same health risks as silicone implants because the filler is essentially a salt water composition.  Thus, in the event of a rupture when the liquid leaks into the woman’s body, the liquid will not harm her body.  Saline implants are also popular implants because they are generally more affordable than silicone gel filled implants.  However, they do create a firmer, tight appearance because the liquid fills up the implant completely.  They can also create a rippled appearance on the breast.  Because this appearance can look unnatural, it is better to use saline implants for minor correction or minor breast augmentation.  Saline implants will look more natural when not a significant amount of correcting needs to be done. 

Gummy Bear Implants

Recently popular and only very recently approved by the FDA in the United States, gummy bear implants are silicone implants that are more solid than standard silicone gel filled implants.  This does not mean that they pose the same problem as saline implants in creating an unnatural firm look to the breast.  Rather, gummy bear implants create a natural appearance without posing the risks connected to silicone gel implants.  These implants use a high quality, high strength filler that stays firm when cut in half.  Thus, if a rupture occurs, no potentially dangerous materials are leaked into the body.

Who Makes Popular Breast Implants?

These popular breast implants can be found in facilities throughout the nation.  Mentor is a highly popular manufacturer of silicone breast implants, and doctors nationwide use Mentor implants.  Gummy bear implants are made primarily by Dr. Grant Stevens and Dr. Michelle Spring at Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina Del Ray, California or Beverly Hills, California.  Saline implants can be granted by plastic surgeons at many facilities across the United States.  Research the plastic surgery centers in your area to see what they offer and you will be able to find someone providing the perfect implants for you.

Popular Breast Implants

Although the most popular breast implants may be popular for a reason, consider your motivation for surgery.  If you are seeking significant breast augmentation, let that be a factor in whether you choose silicone over saline.  Motivation for receiving breast augmentation surgery is an important factor in determining which of the most popular breast implants is the right kind for you.
