Silicone and Saline Implants

December 21st, 2018 by alissa

Dr Kara was invited to visit an implant manufacturing facility in Europe. As a gift, they made Dr. Kara implants with his business card in them!

There are two major types of breasts implants used in breast augmentation:

Silicone Implants: This type of implant is filled with silicone gel. The implant is pre-filled with the gel and then surgically placed inside the breasts. Some surgeons believe that silicone implants give your breasts a more natural appearance and feel because they resemble breast tissue better. Because of the gel’s viscosity you rippling is less of an issue when compared to saline implants. However, ruptures are more difficult to detect because the silicone tends to stay together and doesn’t migrate as much.

Saline Implants: A saline solution is used to fill this type of implant, and this done during the surgery. After the implant shell is placed in the body, a specific amount of saline is injected into the shells to achieve the desired size. Saline implants typically require a smaller incision than silicone implants. Ruptures in saline implants are easily detectable. When a saline implant ruptures, the saline leaks out of it and into the body, where it is easily and harmlessly absorbed by the body. You can detect the rupture by seeing the size/shape change in the affected breast.

But how about if you could combine the natural look and feel of silicone with the easy detection of a rupture in saline?

The latest in implant technology is the Ideal Implant. The Ideal Implant combines the benefits of both!
