When it comes to any sort of cosmetic procedure be it fillers, a rhinoplasty and particularly a breast augmentation, there is a veil of shame around it, which shouldn’t be given a lot of mind since people will always find a reason to shame you. So, if you feel like you really need a breast augmentation, then you should book a consultation and then go with it. Regardless of whether you are getting your augmentation done because of a mastectomy or purely aesthetic reasons, it is just as valid.
Now with breast augmentations, the most popular and obvious choice people go for are silicone implants. There are a number of qualified cosmetic surgeons like Dr Peter Randle that can do a great job with them. However, if you still have doubts, you can keep on reading below to learn more about silicone implants.
Silicone implants consists of silicone filled pads that are inserted inside your breasts. Now silicone is considered as a soft filler, making it a lot more comfortable, easier to move around with and easy to adjust to as well. We understand that there are different kinds of breast shapes, which is why there are different types of silicone pads made like the contoured shaped, the tear shaped and so on, so they can adjust to any breast type. Another interesting thing about silicone implants is that they now come in a textured surface variety as well, this prevents any chances of tissue shrinkage or of the implant moving around.
The only thing you need to be vary about with silicone implants is that in case of a rupture, you need to act fast since the fluid will leak around your breast tissue which can potentially cause damage, however they are generally very long lasting.
