There are two common types of breast implants: implants filled with silicone and implants filled with saline. Previously, saline was more popular because of initial restrictions of silicone and remains such today because during the procedure, a smaller cut is necessary to plant the implant. This is because silicone implants require that they be filled with the substance before being placed into the breasts, which will require a larger cut. Saline implants are able to be inserted through a smaller incision and can be filled up after they are securely placed within the breast tissue. Every person has heard of breast implants before, just as everyone has claimed that such and such celebrity has them. Breast augmentation with breast implants has become an increasingly popular medical procedure that women all over America look to receive. Because of the increasing popularity of the procedure, it is currently the most often performed cosmetic surgical procedure in all of America. This fact remains true even with the decreasing amount due to the troubling state of the economy. Breast augmentation with the use of breast implants can create an entirely new or rejuvenated body contour that a woman has been wanting.
