Breast Implants – Deciding Factors

.tags There might be more to life than your looks, but we do rely a lot on our looks to live our lives. For so many women, not having an adequate bosom might be something that actually deters their lives. These women might suffer from self-esteem issues related to how they view themselves in the mirror. For these women, cosmetic surgery might be the key to find something they’ve never had before. For these women, breast implants might actually make all the difference.

Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, so that you can add the right amount of enhancement. Because they add to what you already have naturally, you won’t find them in cup sizes. It makes no sense to have a D cup size enhancement when you would be adding it to an A or B cup size to get to the D cup. The implants themselves are measured in cubic centimeters. This is the amount of fluid that is found inside each one. Add that to the size you already have and you will get the desired cup size.

The most common size of breast implant is around 150ccs. It is just enough to give most women that boost up to the next cup size. While you can get larger ones, if you must, going a single cup size smaller may look more natural and better all the way around. Of course if you just have to go all out, then your doctor can point you in the right direction for sizes.

Size isn’t the only thing you have to consider during breast implant surgery. You will also need to decide what type of fluid you want. They come in two types, silicone or saline. The saline models are safer to use in case of rupture. The saline will naturally be absorbed into the blood stream and you don’t have to worry about poisoning. That being said, they are known to not feel as natural as silicone. If the feel of the model is important then saline might not be the right choice.

Silicone breast implants are probably the most popular. They are said to have a more natural feel to them and many people can’t tell that they are enhanced, if the procedure is done correctly. The do run a risk though, since silicone is toxic. Should one of these burst or tear then you should see your doctor immediately.
