One of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed each year is the augmentation mammaplasty, more commonly known as breast augmentation. Breast augmentation is a procedure that enhances the size, shape and feel of the breasts, typically through the implantation of prosthetic breast implants.
Breast implants used for augmentation mammaplasty are highly customizable in their size, shape and texture. The two major types of implants, saline and silicone, each have their own set of characteristics. For example, some prefer the look and feel of silicone implants, which are also less likely to leak if ruptures. Saline implants can be inserted empty, which may be preferable because that allows the surgical incision to be smaller.
