Breast Augmentation in Maryland (MD) – Implant Types

A breast implant is a prosthesis used to alter the size and shape of a woman's breasts for cosmetic reasons (such as mentioned above).
There are two main types of breast implants (both of the are avaliable in Maryland area): saline-filled and silicone-gel-filled implants. Saline implants were first manufactured in France in 1964 and have a silicone elastomeric shell filled with sterile saline (Salt Water) liquid. Since the implants are empty when they are surgically inserted, the scar is smaller than is necessary for silicone gel breast implants.
Good to excellent results may be achieved, but as compared to silicone gel implants, they are more likely to cause cosmetic problems such as rippling, wrinkling, and to be noticeable to the unarmed eye or the touch.

Silicone gel implants, on the other hand have a silicone shell filled with a viscous silicone gel.
The first silicone implant was developed in 1961 and since than they are generally described in term of 5 generations of manufacturing techniques.

Depending on the level of activity required, patients are generally able to resume normal activity in approximately one week's time. Women who have their implants placed underneath the muscle (submuscular placement) will generally have a longer recovery time and experience slightly more pain due to the muscle being cut during surgery. Exercise and strenuous physical activity will often need to be avoided for up to six weeks.
