Breast Augmentation – Implant Types – Huntersville
Last year, breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty, was one of them most popular types of cosmetic plastic surgery with more than a quarter million surgeries performed. With the continuing popularity, there are more and more types of breast implant for women to choose.
Overall, there are two general types, saline and silicone implants. Both are FDA-approved and come with their own unique range of benefits. Silicone and saline breast implants both come in many shapes and sizes. Some are wider with less projection, some offer a higher breast profile and some offer textured shells.
