Types of Implants
There are three main types of implants that you can choose from: saline, silicone, and gummy bear implants. All of these implants are FDA approved and will help to deliver great results, however, not all implants may give you the results that you are seeking.
- Saline: Saline implants are composed of a salt water ingredient and have been considered to be the safest implant on the market for decades. Because the body naturally absorbs saline, if your implant were to burst after several years, you wouldn’t run into any sort of health problems or risks. Saline implants are notorious for being a little firmer in texture and won’t move around a lot—so, if you live a more active lifestyle, a saline implant might be ideal for you.
- Silicone: In the early 90’s silicone implants were taken off of the plastic surgery market, as they were deemed unsafe because they were bursting in people’s bodies and the silicone wasn’t able to be absorbed. However, the new technology in silicone implants makes them equally as safe as saline. One of the best things about silicone implants is that patients say they tend to feel a bit more natural than their saline counterparts.
- Gummy Bear: As the newest type of implant on the market and one that is gaining steady popularity, gummy bear implants are tear dropped implants that are composed of a silicone like material. Because of both their shape and their texture, gummy bear implants are primarily popular because they look and feel more natural.
