Types of Breast Implants

Every woman desires to have a perfect pair of breasts that she can flaunt. It adds to the beauty and charm of a woman’s personality. Who doesn’t want that curvaceous look? We all do. Right? But sometimes, we are not really blessed in the bosom department. Guess what? You can 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.

There are various types of breast implants 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 into two types; shape and material used. 

Types of Breast Implants Shapes

If you are considering a boob job, you need to think hard about what kind of implants are you looking for.  The shape is an important aspect, probably more than the type used. The individual anatomy; including body type, sternum width, chest-wall contour, and existing breast tissue influences the decision. Here are the two most popular kinds 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 which make 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 became widely available after the year 2003. These implants are also known by the name of form-stable or gummy-bear implants. They provide more volume at the bottom and less volume at the top (to match the natural shape of a woman’s breast). Tear-shaped implants look way more natural than the traditional round ones. Hence, they are perfect for those looking for subtle breast enhancement.

Breast Implants by 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.

Smooth Breast Implants

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

Textured Breast Implants

These implants also have an outer silicone rubber shell but it has a rough, pebbly and irregular surface. They attach themselves really 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 a lot of debates regarding which one is better than the other but the truth is they both work extremely 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 salt water. They are best suited 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, 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.

Mentor Breast Implants

Mentor Breast ImplantThe 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 the popular belief, some men also want to opt for breast implants known by the name of pectoral implants. Hence, they go for pectoral implants. Now, these implants won’t result in man boobs but they will allow men to have the chest muscles that they are unable to achieve via exercise.
