Common terms used in breast implants

Gummy-bear breast implant or form-stable-unlike the traditional silicone implant, this implant has a thicker silicone gel which retains its shape from manufacture. The name gummy is gotten from the fact that this implant can be cut into two and it will not leak.

Saline breast implant –this implant is made of a silicone gel which is filled with air prior to insertion. When it is well placed the air is expelled and replaced with salt water or saline. The saline is similar to natural body fluid, making it easy for the body to absorb the fluid if the silicone shell ruptures. Saline implants can be seen or felt through the skin and they are more prone to leak.

Silicone breast implant- is a silicone shell filled with cohesive silicone gel. They feel more natural than the saline implants and they are softer.

Smooth breast implant- is an implant whose shell has not been textured.

Texture breast implant- is an implant whose outer shell is textured to prevent displacement.

Implant profile- is used to figure the width of the implant to the chest. This means that the implant has to achieve optimal cleavage and width; this works best if you consult the surgeon.

Breast implant shape- is usually round, but behind the muscles it is anatomic or teardrop shaped. The implant shape is important to give you a smooth feel and a natural look like a real breast.

Breast implant sizing- is made by the use of technology so that the right size of the implant is chosen. The use of Vectra 3D cameras helps a patient see how they will look after the implant and they get to choose a suitable and desirable size.
