In Australia implants used in Breast Augmentation can be made of either silicone gel or saline (a salt and water mixture). Most plastic surgeons in Australia prefer to use silicone gel breast implants.
Other than considering if you want silicone or saline you need to consider the shape, texture, size, feel and placement of the breast implant:
Common misconceptions include that breast implants cause cancer and that you can’t breastfeed with breast implants. There is no evidence to suggest that implants cause cancer or interfere with breastfeeding. Women who have implants need to inform the radiologist when having a breast cancer screen. Radiologist have been trained to detect cancer in a mammogram in patients with breast implants.
Breast implants can last for up to 25 years however they may need to be changed sooner as the surrounding breast tissue decreases and sags with age. At this point a larger implant may be required and a breast lift performed at the same time. Breast Implants do cause the breast to sag earlier than would otherwise occur.
Overall, with an experienced plastic surgeon and the right shape, feel, texture, placement and size breast implant; you can expect a very natural looking result.
