Silicone miami breast implants remain the most popular form of breast implant chosen by most women who decide to undergo breast augmentation surgery. Generally chosen for their more natural appearance and feel, silicone miami breast implants have been approved by the FDA for use as miami breast implants for women meeting certain guidelines.
Silicone miami breast implants have gone through a lot of changes since their first uses. The first generation of silicone miami breast implants had thick shells, while the second generation used thinner shells. After the mid-1980s and many concerns over rupture rates of these new thinner-shelled miami breast implants, silicone implant manufacturers started working on researching ways to have shells that are slighting thicker but still maintain a natural, soft, smooth appearance.
These third generation silicone miami breast implants are commonly referred to as cohesive gel miami breast implants and range in size and shape. A woman can discuss her options with her plastic surgeon and determine which profile is best (for example, moderate profile, mid-range profile, etc.). A moderate profile silicone implant will have a more natural appearance, whereas a mid-range to high profile silicone implant will stand out more.
Silicone miami breast implants also range in surface texture, from smooth to textured or rough surfaces. Textured miami breast implants have been shown to reduce a common post-surgery complication called capsular contracture, which is when the tissue around the implant hardens when healing. were originally designed to reduce capsular contracture (firmness and hardening of the tissue which heals around the implant). The textured surface allows the silicone implant to attach more firmly to the surrounding area. A smoother surfaced silicone implant has a tendency to move around inside of the pocket that was created for the implant.
Many people worry about be the safety of silicone, and the result of a possible rupture of the silicone implant. Silicone has been researched in many studies, and is used as a base material for many medical devices and prosthetics that are placed inside of the body. In fact, silicone is probably the most studied implantable material in medical science. There have been over 35 well-conducted and well-documented studies throughout the world, and there has never been a link with silicone as an implantable material and disease. In fact, some studies have shown that silicone miami breast implants have actually reduced the incidence rate of breast cancer, and women who have silicone miami breast implants tend to have a lower rate of breast cancer than other women in the general population. Even if the silicone implant ruptures, there is no solid medical evidence that shows that the ruptured implant is harmful to the woman’s body.
