What’s Inside Your Breast Implant?

What’s Inside Your Breast Implant?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), of the 1.7 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2015, breast augmentation was among the top 5. I would think it’s closer to the number one spot, but that’s just my opinion.

 

It doesn’t matter whether you’re planning for breast reconstruction or you’re considering augmentation, I think you’ll find this video helpful.

“Traditionally, most breast implants had a silicone shell filled with liquid silicone. Newer, shaped implants have a silicone shell with cohesive gel silicone inside. The benefit of the shaped silicone is that these implants do not leak like traditional implants. Here we are cutting an implant in half to show you what is inside. Nothing leaks out!” Dr. Leif Rogers, MD, FACS

 

 

While I was planning for breast reconstruction I couldn’t get any doctor to show me the inside of an implant. In fact, in most cases, doctors didn’t even have the right sample for me to see or touch before making a selection.
