It is a surgical procedure also known as Augmentation Mammoplasty, which helps to improve the shape and size of the bust through cohesive silicone gel breast implants.
They are medical devices to improve the shape of the breast. There are several types of implants: those of saline (water and salt) and those of silicone, the implants vary in size, shape, and texture. In the evaluation appointment with your cosmetic surgeon about your breast surgery, it is important to talk about which implant will best suit the patient, be it: round or anatomical.
Round implants: they tend to reflect a more voluminous neckline, do not lose their shape, help prevent capsular contracture (hardening of the breast), in addition to a maximum duration of 20 years, and to be compatible with breastfeeding.
Anatomical implants: these are drop-shaped implants, they provide a shape very similar to that of a natural breast, the surgeon has to determine if you are a candidate for this type of implant.
