Options for Breast Augmentation - Silicon V/S Saline Breast Implants


A woman's breasts play an important role in her overall personality; they are a symbol of femininity. Breast augmentation is an ideal cosmetic surgery procedure for all those women who are not satisfied with the shape, size, and/or volume of their breasts. However, breast augmentation surgery is not as simple as it sounds; there are a number of decisions that you will have to make once you have made up your mind about undergoing breast augmentation Thailand surgery.

Let us have a look at some of the major decisions that you will have to make at some stage in your breast augmentation Thailand surgery procedure:

  • Silicone V/S Saline Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants contain silicone gel and are considered ideal for women with less soft tissue coverage. Most of the women undergoing breast augmentation surgery prefer using the silicone breast implants as they look and feel more natural than the saline breast implants.

Saline breast implants, on the other hand, are filled with saline solution. The saline breast implants are first inserted in the breast and then filled with the required amount of saline water. Therefore, they require smaller incisions.

  • Round V/S Teardrop Breast Implants

Whether you prefer saline breast implants or silicone breast implants, you have the option of choosing their shape. Round shaped breast implants are preferred over the teardrop shape as they conform to the natural anatomy of the breasts. They make the breasts appear fuller and create an even projection. Whereas teardrop shaped breast implants create more fullness in the lower breasts and resemble the teardrop contour of a natural breast.

  • Over The Muscle V/S Under The Muscle Placement Of Breast Implants

When it comes to placing these implants inside your breasts, the breast augmentation Thailand surgeon has two options:

  • place them behind the breast gland
  • place them behind the pectoralis muscle under the breast

The placement of these implants depends directly on the amount of natural breast tissues you have, your desired results, and the type of your body.

  • Inframammary V/S Periareolar Incision

After looking at your natural anatomy, the condition of your breasts, your personal preferences, and other implant options you have selected, your breast augmentation Thailand surgeon will be in a better position to decide where to make the incision.
