What is Breast Augmentation and what is the role of Implants?

Breast augmentation surgery helps make you feel more feminine by enhancing the size of breasts by placing breast implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. It is a vital part of mammoplasty and brings back self-confidence, especially for those who had several pregnancies and were suffering from small or loose breasts. It is the most demanded surgery in Bangalore, India, and sought by almost every woman because many of them are desired to spend their daytime on the sunny beaches and want to look their best in a bikini. Many women just want to enhance the size of their breasts and the reason may be, either personal or professional.

Breast Implants are Key Factor: What & When?

Breast augmentation surgery is performed by placing the breast implants and it enhances your feminine profile. The implants are either silicone or saline that is chosen after the primary assessment done at the accredited plastic cosmetic surgery center.

A breast implant is a prosthesis used to change the shape, size, and contour of the breasts, inserted under the breast tissue, either for breast reconstructive jobs or augmentation mammoplasty. When it is used in reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy, to correct the congenital defects and deformities of the chest wall, it is known as a breast reconstruction procedure where it restores the natural-looking breast appearance. On the other hand, when implants are used in the breast augmentation procedure in order to improve the shape and size of breasts appearance cosmetically; this procedure is called breast enhancement or breast augmentation surgery. 

What are the types of Breast Implants?

There are two basic types of breast implants, i.e., Silicone and Saline gel implants. Both silicone and saline gel implants are approved by FDA (Food & Drug Administration). Both silicone and saline gel implants are used in the augmentation/surgery, but what implant will be suitable or perfectly match your desired expectations are only decided once you are evaluated by the certified plastic surgeon.

Silicone Gel Implants: Silicone gel implants due to their significance of giving the most natural feel and touch considered very first when we talk about breast augmentation/breast reconstruction surgery. Silicone gel implants are silicone shells filled with a plastic gel (silicone) that gives a more natural feeling like real breasts.

Saline Gel Implants: Saline-filled implants are silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline). Saline-filled implants are pre-filled or filled during the breast implantation procedure/surgery.

The role of Breast implants in Breast Augmentation/Reconstruction Surgery:

1.     Breast implants are synthetic parts that are surgically inserted to support the breast augmentation procedure.

2.     Breast implant is a prosthesis that is inserted into the breast to enhance the size of breasts.

3.     Breast implants have a significant role in offering you the desired breast shape, size, and contour, including the convenience of choosing implant shape and size-matched to your aesthetic expectation.

4.     You will feel more feminine as it restores volumes and makes your breasts voluptuous.

5.     Implants help in the symmetrical proportion of the breasts and even out asymmetrical ones in order to restore a proportionate figure.

6.     It restores volume to sagging breasts and offers you a more youthful appearance.

Top 5 Facts to Check about Silicone vs. Saline Breasts Implants

1.     Silicone and Saline Implants in the context of Safety:

Both silicone and saline implants are generally considered safe and it is a must to receive the surgery only from the accredited cosmetic center/clinic and with the board-certified plastic cosmetic surgeon. Some believe that saline is safer because ruptures can be identified immediately as most of the saltwater will be reabsorbed into the body and one can take precautionary measures. Most of us are also confused about silicone implants and their link to autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. But, it is not correct because both saline and silicone gel implants have silicone shells, so if you are affected by autoimmune disorders, it is good to check it beforehand.

2.     Silicone and saline Implants when it ruptures:

Both saline and silicone implants can rupture or cause attention to look over time. The saline ruptures can be identified immediately due to the absorbent nature of saltwater into the body as the breasts will look and feel deflated. Saline is sterile and will be reabsorbed and at this point in time, you need a revision visit to your cosmetic center in order to get a new implant. On the other hand, it is difficult to identify the silicone ruptures as the silicone can get trapped in the fibrous capsule that forms around the implant after the breast implant procedure. You’ll just experience a slight change in your breast size or feel the hardness. Again, you need to have surgery to remove ruptured implants and new implants are inserted if you wish to do so.

3.     Silicone and Saline Implants in the view of Cost:

Cost matter is quite considerable but one should aware of this fact that every plastic cosmetic surgery is a creamy cost option and wise too as it transforms your physical profile/appearance. Asking just a cost and making a decision based on the cost factor has no relevance because it is something that enhances your profile that is always a welcoming decision. As a matter of fact, silicone implants are costlier than saline gel implants and you also have to consider the cost of follow-ups MRIs, which are recommended every few years to make sure implants, are not leaking into the body.

4.     Implants in the context of Outcome:

First of all, neither saline nor silicone gives you a permanent result as implants can rupture over time. And you need another surgery to insert a new implant. But, it is, of course, a long-time solution as breast implants can last up to 15 years before rupture. Usually, breasts implant are removed or replaced within 8 to 10 years, either because of rupture or replacement can be done for an aesthetic reason. Thus, it is the right decision to have the breast implantation done if you are looking for a long time breast enhancement option.

5.     What should You expect at your first consultation:

Everything will be cleared during primary assessment and you’ll have an opportunity to try on different implant sizes to help with your decision. Your plastic surgeon will talk about your aesthetic expectation and the desired size and how you would like your new bust to look. Breast asymmetry and ideal breast profile will also be discussed if you’re struggling with uneven breast shapes and different implant size is suggestible accordingly.


On the whole, we can say that breast augmentation surgery is decided by the implants and choosing a particular one is wholly and solely a customized decision. Always look for a reputable, board-certified plastic surgeon that can help you to achieve the desired aesthetic goal and also clear your doubts about which type of implants will be the right match for your profile.
