All about Breast Implants in Australia

Every woman wants to have great boobs. However, due to weight loss, pregnancy and breastfeeding, aging and hereditary genes, not everyone’s boobs look great. Boobs tend to lose their volume and fullness due to these factors and more. A boob job is therefore required to improve how they look. 

Breast Augmentation VS Breast lift

Breast augmentation involves surgically placing breast implants to improve symmetry, increase the fullness of the breasts or restore lost breast fullness.

Breast lift also known as mastopexy involves raising the breasts by removing excess skin and supporting the new breast contour by tightening the surrounding tissue.

A breast lift is ideal for severely sagging breasts. A breast augmentation can’t rectify breast droopiness.

Types of Breast Implants

Saline Implants

Just as the name suggests, these implants contain sterile salt water. 

 Advantages

  • They are relatively cheaper compared to other types of breast implants.
  • If they rupture and start leaking, the saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.

Disadvantages

  • They are more likely to ripple when the woman moves around.
  • Since they are like water balloons, they are more likely to rapture.

Saline implants are FDA approved for women over the age of 18:

Silicone Breast implants

They are filled with silicone gel.

Advantages

  • They have a more natural feel to them compared to saline implants.
  • They are less likely to ripple because they have more consistency compared to the saline implants.
  • They are more resilient hence less likely to rapture.

Disadvantages

  • They need regular monitoring to ensure that they haven’t raptured. 
  • If they rapture, it may not be immediately noticed by the woman who has them and may eventually lead to breast pain.
  • They are more expensive compared to saline implants.

Silicone implants are FDA approved for women over the age of 22:

Gummy bear implants

They contain thicker silicone gel compared to the silicone implants.

Advantages

  • They have more projection at the bottom.
  • They are more firm compared to the saline and silicone implants
  • They are less likely to break 

Disadvantages

  • They require a longer incision on the skin to place them hence more scarring
  • Round breast implants
  • They are round all over

Advantages

  • They make the breasts appear fulle

Disadvantages

  • They offer a less natural projection and perkiness

Smooth implants:

Advantage

  • They can freely move within the breast pocket making them look and feel more natural

Disadvantage

  • Since they can freely move, rippling can be noticed
