In the United States the two major companies that manufacture breast implants are McGahan and Mentor. Both companies offer a variety of different breast implants:

  • Oval Shaped with smooth surface
  • Round shaped with a smooth or textured breast implants siltex surface
  • Expandable adjustable breast implants

The expansion-augmentation of the breast is a technique for enlargement of the female breast that boasts several unique advantages over the standard augmentation method. These breast implants were designed by Dr. Hilton Becker originally as a reconstructive device.

There has been so much controversy in the last two decades pertaining to the silicone filled breast implants, that this section could turn intro an extremely long and tedious read. What is valid is the alarm it awoke in even the most skeptical person. Now that the Internet era is in full swing, more and more anti-breast implants sites are popping up.

Silicone sensitivity may be a problem with some patients, just as one may be sensitive to latex, nut oils or eucalyptus. However, there are far too many happy women with NO complaints whatsoever with implants in, for over two decades. According to the USFDA (Food and Drug Administration), there is no conclusive evidence regarding illnesses and silicone.
There are two types of silicone breast implants:

1) Silicone gel breast implants
2) Cohesive gel breast implants

Silicone-filled breast implants
There has been so much controversy in the last two decades pertaining to the silicone filled breast implants, that this section could turn intro an extremely long and tedious read. What is valid is the alarm it awoke in even the most skeptical person. Now that the Internet era is in full swing, more and more anti-breast implants sites are popping up.

Anatomic Breast Implants

There are plastic surgeons that believe that these breast implants give a more natural look because they are shaped in the form of a tear, imitating the natural breast.

Textured

These breast implants were developed to reduced the chance of capsular contracture and promote tissue adherence.

They were developed to reduce the chance of capsular contracture(the hardening of the breast), and promote tissue adherence, which may help maintain proper implant positioning. 

Because they are shaped in the form of a tear, they are commonly referred to as teardrop breast implants. However, studies have shown they are same as the round breast implants. The anatomic breast implants might be a better choice for a patient who has completely flat breasts or that has no breast shape at all. However, because the anatomic breast implants are textured, they might have a firmer feel, but at the same time might have a higher chance of rippling.
Rippling is the effect that is sometimes noticeable, where the skin seems to be actually rippling as a direct consequence of the breast implants, due to various reasons. It might be because of the tightness of the chest, because of the shape of the breast implants, or just because some patients are more prone than others to develop rippling. Again, this subject would be better discussed once the patient is undergoing the initial consultation with a Plastic Surgeon.
