One of the main factors that makes a procedure like a breast augmentation stand out is that it utilizes implants to provide results. Some may be curious about what the implant is made of, why it is needed, and if there are any risks associated with implants.
The implant is made of a special silicone casing that has been filled with either silicone gel or a saline solution. The implant provides the added volume and projection patients are looking for in their breasts. They can be made larger or smaller, depending on your aesthetic goals. The implants have a very low rupture rate. If there are any leaks or ruptures, both the saline and silicone options will do no major harm to the body.
