Breast Augmentation Surgery — Breast Implant Types
Breast augmentation surgery is a popular procedure that enlarges the breasts by surgically inserting silicone-shell prosthetics filled with either silicone gel or a salt-water solution known as saline.
In 2014, most of the 286,000 breast implant procedures performed in the United States were silicone-based. This preference is largely because silicone provides a more natural look and feel to the breasts.
The best candidates for breast augmentation surgery are women who are looking to enhance the size and/or shape of their breasts to balance out their proportions. If you’re physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you should do just fine moving forward with the enhancement.
