What types of breast implants are available?

Saline breast implants

Saline breast implants, filled with sterile salt water, will collapse if their shell leaks. In such cases, the body will naturally absorb and expel the saline. These implants offer consistent shape, firmness, and feel.

Structured saline breast implants

Structured implants, filled with sterile salt water, feature an inner framework designed to provide a more natural feel.

Silicone breast implants

Silicone breast implants contain silicone gel, which closely mimics the feel of natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may stay within the shell or escape into the implant pocket, but the implant will not collapse. Regular check-ups with your plastic surgeon are recommended to ensure the implants are functioning properly. Ultrasound or MRI screenings can help evaluate their condition.

Gummy bear breast implants

Form-stable implants, often called gummy bear breast implants, retain their shape even if the shell is broken. The silicone gel inside these implants is thicker than that in traditional silicone gel implants, making them firmer as well. Shaped gummy bear implants have a fuller projection at the bottom and taper towards the top. If a shaped implant rotates, it can create an unusual breast appearance that may need a corrective procedure. Inserting gummy bear implants requires a slightly longer skin incision.


Textured breast implants

Texturally enhanced breast implants reduce the likelihood of movement and repositioning by forming scar tissue that adheres to the implant. There is some benefit to texturing in lowering the possibility of a taut scar capsule.
