Breast Implants

Every woman desires to have a perfect pair of breasts that she can flaunt. But some women are not blessed in the bosom department. However, it is now possible to achieve an ideal pair of breasts by undergoing breast augmentation. Whether your goal is a subtle change or a more dramatic difference, there is a breast implant that’s right for your body shape. It adds up to the beauty and charm of your personality.

Breast implants have various types that range from saline, silicone, mentor, tear-drop to a round shape. One over the other can be chosen depending on a couple of factors; your current breast size, the look you are going for, whether you want to breastfeed in the future or not, and sustainability. Breast implants are categorized based on the shape and material used. 

Breast Implants Shape

If you consider breast implant surgery Dubai, you need to think hard about the kind of implants you are looking for.  The shape is an important aspect to consider while choosing an implant. The individual anatomy, including body type, sternum width, chest-wall contour, and existing breast tissues, influences the decision. Here are the two most popular shapes of implants;

  • Round 
  • Tear-drop

Round Breast Implants

The round-shaped implant is the traditional kind and is an overwhelming choice for aspiring breast augmentation candidates worldwide. They help you achieve soft, round, and nicely proportioned breasts. Round implants are available in a wide range of diameters and projection degrees, making them an ideal choice for any woman’s breast and body type. They make your breasts look fuller, rounder and give you perfect cleavage.

Tear-Shaped Implant

Teardrop-shaped breast implants Dubai became widely available after 2003 and are also known as form-stable or gummy-bear implants. Tear-shaped implants look way more natural than the traditional round ones. They provide more volume at the bottom and less at the top (to match a woman’s breast). Hence, they are perfect for those looking for subtle breast enhancement.

Breast Implants Texture

The texture of breast Implants determines how they will look on the outside. There are two main kinds;

  • Textured
  • Smooth

Here is a brief overview and the difference between the two types of breast implants in Dubai.

Smooth Breast Implants

Such types of implants have an outer rubber shell that is made up of silicone. They are incredibly smooth, shiny, and slippery. They are not attached to the surrounding body tissues and are freely movable within the implant’s sack.

Textured Breast Implants

Textured implants also have an outer silicone rubber shell, but they have a rough, pebbly, and irregular surface. They attach themselves well to the tissue capsule and do not move around like the smooth implants.

Breast Implants by Material

There are two kinds of implants based on the material;

  • Saline
  • Silicone

There have been many debates regarding which one is better than the other, but the truth is they both work exceptionally well depending on the results you are looking for.

Saline Breast Implant

Saline Breast Implant

Saline breast implants are inserted into your chest when they are empty. Afterward, they are filled with sterile saltwater. They are suitable for younger ladies but can be used for any age bracket as well.

Silicone Breast Implant

Silicone Breast Implant

Silicone implants are pre-filled with a silicone gel. The gel used is a thick and sticky fluid that closely mimics the feel of human fat. Most women feel that silicone breast implants look and feel a bit more natural than saline ones. Therefore, silicone implants are considered the best breast implants in Dubai.

Mentor Breast Implant

Mentor Breast Implants

The structure of Mentor breast implants consists of successive cross-linked layers of silicone elastomer. The shell used in them also provides a disruptive surface for the collagen interface. A highly cohesive gel is used, which is perfect for shape retention.

Pectoral Implants

Contrary to popular belief, some men also opt for breast implants, mainly pectoral implants. These implants won’t result in man boobs, but they will allow men to have chest muscles that cannot be achieved via exercise.

Motiva Breast Implants

Motiva Breast Implant is a revolutionary and dynamic system that has transformed how round breast implants are perceived. It takes into account the individual aesthetic objectives of the patient instead of taking a cookie-cutter approach for every patient.

Implant Replacement FAQs

Are breast implants safe now?

Yes, both saline and silicone breast implants are safe for breast procedures like breast augmentation and reconstruction as the FDA has approved them.

Do breast implants sag over time?

Yes, it depends on the breast implant sizing. If the breast implant is too large in size, it will sag over time. Overly large breasts stretch the skin that holds them causing breast implants to lose shape. Gravity also plays a role by pulling the implants down when excessive weight is placed on the tissues.

Is breast implant painful?

Yes, since breast augmentation through breast implants is a surgical procedure, you should expect some pain after the procedure. You will not feel any pain during the surgery because it is performed under anesthesia. However, you should expect pain and tenderness for two to three weeks around the incision sites after the surgery. Your surgeon will prescribe you some medications for pain management.

What is the most common breast implant size?

The most common breast implant size ranges from 350 to 500 cc. These implants look like small to large C cups.

Which type of breast implant feels the most natural and safer?

Among all the options available nowadays, silicone breast implants feel the most natural and safer. They are made up of highly viscous gel that is very soft and mimics the natural breast tissues. Therefore, silicone breasts provide more natural-looking results than saline implants.

How much do breast implants cost in 2021?

The breast implants cost depends on the type of implant being used, the location of the clinic, and the surgeon. Your surgeon will choose the best-suited breast implant for you according to your requirements. Typically, the average starting price of breast implant surgery is AED 27000. However, it is not fixed and varies from one person to another depending on the factors mentioned above.

If you get breast implants, can you breastfeed?

The majority of the women with breast implants can breastfeed because implants do not interfere with the breast duct or mammary glands. However, it depends on the original condition of your breasts before getting the surgery and the type of incisions made.

Can you get breast implants while pregnant?

No, you cannot get breast implants while pregnant because it is not safe for the baby. You should first deliver the baby, wait for at least six months for nursing the baby, and then opt for breast implants.
