Breast Augmentation – What type of implants should I have?
Breast Augmentation Dubai | 1 August 2018
The outer layer, or shell, of all implants is made of silicone. Some implants have an additional polyurethane coating. The shell can be filled with either silicone gel or saline. Implants have been used for breast augmentation since the 1960’s and, when made to appropriate specifications, the evidence suggests they are safe to use. I will inform you exactly which type and manufacturer of implant that will be used and why. I only use tried and tested implants made by reputable manufacturers. Most patients will be offered silicone gel filled implants. They tend to feel the most natural, can readily be made teardrop-shaped and are durable. Saline filled implants tend to feel less natural, folds and ripples may be more visible and they have a risk of deflation. All other filler materials have been withdrawn for use. The two most important decisions to make about your implants are their size and shape.
