Every woman in the world has considered if she needs breast implants or not at least once.

This plastic surgery has and fans and enemies. Depending on whom you ask, people will tell you different things about breast implants. According to the specialists, though, this surgery can alter the size and the shape of your breasts. Sometimes this surgery is needed due to health issues like cancer but more often it is a cosmetic improvement. There are two possible ways of inserting the implant in your breast. The first one is when the implant is positioned behind the chest muscle. The second one is when breast implants are planted between breast tissue and chest muscle. There are two types of breast implants in Singapore — saline breast enlargements and silicone breast enlargements. Choosing the exact position of your implants and the material is up to you and your surgeon. Have in mind that if your surgeon has not enough experience you should be extremely careful. Dr. Samuel Ho recommends before choosing a surgeon for your breast enlargement surgery in Singapore to research as much as possible.

Saline breast enlargements

They are made of silicone shells full with salt water (saline), of course, the salt water is sterile. The consistency of the liquid improves the shape of the breast. This is not recommendable for young girls under 18 years old, because their breasts can grow more. How big the implant will be, depends on the volume of the saline inside the shell. If the implant starts to leak, our body will absorb the salty water. This kind of implants is really easy to recognize if it is ruptured or not. If it leaks, the form of the breast will be changed.

Structured Breast implants

This is saline breast implants with the structure inside them. This is needed in order to improve the shape of the implant. It works as a structure of a building — shell is supported by walls.

Both types are popular because they are really easy to be situated in the body of the patient. A small incision is made by the surgeon, and the shell is inserted. After that, the shell is filled with the saline with injection.

Silicone breast enlargements

Silicone ones are filled not with saline but with silicone gel. Silicone gel feels more natural on touching, according to Dr. Samuel Ho. Silicone implants leak differently. If something happened and the integrity is disrupted then the gel could stay in the implant or to leak in the breast. If you choose silicone gel implants you should visit regularly your surgeon in order to check for leaks and ruptures. The Minimal age which is allowed to improve your breasts with silicone gel enlargements is 22 years.

Breast enlargement cost in Singapore is different or the different types of implants.

Silicone breast enlargements are more expensive, but they have lower chance to ripple. There is another main difference between the implants. Dr. Samuel Ho explains that silicone implants need a bigger incision to be made because they have to be placed at once — not like saline, where the shell is placed first and then filled. However, patients who have good skin and abilities to recover fast will not have troubles with the bigger scar. The only way to detect if the silicone implant is ruptured is MRI because breast doesn’t alter their shape.

Breast enlargement surgery in Singapore is a popular choice but every patient should be extremely careful choosing the right surgeon. This surgery is provided while the patient is under general anesthesia and there is a recovery time so complications should be avoided as much as possible.
