Breast Implants - Breast Augmentation
Breast implants are prostheses used to change the size and shape of a woman's breasts (also known as breast augmentation, breast enlargement, mammoplasty enlargement, augmentation mammoplasty or commonly by the slang "boob job"). This procedure could be performed due to cosmetic choices, to reconstruct the breast after a mastectomy or to correct congenital chest wall deformities.
Two common types of breast implants exist one being a saline-filled implant and the other a silicone-gel-filled implant. Saline implants are created using a silicone elastomer shell that is filled with a sterile saline solution. Silicone gel implants, on the other hand, are created using a silicone shell filled with silicone gel.
