Melbourne Plastic Surgeon Prof. Mark Ashton discusses the different types of breast implants for a breast augmentation procedure.

Although being one of the most common cosmetic surgery operations performed worldwide, breast augmentation is not straightforward and there are many pitfalls for the unwary.

There has been a radical change in the type of devices used for breast augmentation in the last four years. Whereas in the late 1990 and early 2000’s the most common type of breast implant used was a saline implant. This has now rapidly been replaced by a cohesive silicone gel implant.

Basically the decisions that you need to make in choosing a device are:

  1. Saline or Gel filled implant.
  2. Round or tear drop / anatomical shaped implant
  3. Textured or smooth implant.
