Breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) is a procedure that lasts approximately 80 minutes and consists of increasing the size and improving the shape of the breasts by inserting breast implants (prostheses).
There are saline and silicone implants. What’s the difference?
- Saline implants are inserted empty, then filled with sterile saline once they are in place.
- Silicone implants are inserted already filled with silicone gel, a thick fluid that mimics the feel of human fat.
Your plastic surgeon, depending on several factors such as your breasts’ anatomy, your complexion, age, and height, will be able to recommend the most suitable type of implant for you to have the best results.

Breast implant change
How often are breast implants changed?
There is no fixed or estimated time for changing breast implants, it depends on the type of implant, the interaction of each organism, and how it is transformed. After breast implants are placed, it is advisable to control the evolution of your surgery through doctor’s appointments and annual complementary tests.
Some reasons why a breast implant should be changed:
- Rupture or deterioration of the breast implant.
- Capsular contracture of the prosthesis
- Breast sagging due to significant weight changes.
- Doubts about the previously placed implant.
