What is bilateral breast augmentation
A plastic surgery procedure that uses implants to augment the breasts is called as bilateral breast augmentation or BBA. The implants are either made of silicone gel or saline solution. This procedure targets both breasts.
In terms of size, models, contents and type of material used, interested people have a wild array of implants to choose from. However, you must keep in mind that there is no perfect implant. No matter what you choose, each material will behave differently in relation to your body, its viability, qualities and diverse defects.
However, here are the two main types of implants that most surgeons and patients prefer to consider:
- Saline solution implants
Saline implants are highly recommended for patients who need a breast reconstruction surgery. It is considered safer as your surgeon will insert the empty capsule first before the solution can be injected. Though saline solution implants do not appear very natural, the main advantage is that it has no negative effect on the body.
- Silicone implants
This type of implant is considered as the most popular now in the market. Because the silicone gel is not liquid, it looks and feels more natural. Most plastic surgeons also prefer the silicone breast implants for bilateral breast augmentations.
