Breast Augmentation vs. “Boob Implants”: Is There a Difference?

Although the terms “breast augmentation,” “boob job,” and “breast implants” are often used interchangeably by patients, breast augmentation doesn’t necessarily always involve implants. The umbrella term “breast augmentation” includes any procedures that increase the size of the breasts. There are different types of procedures used for this purpose, including the insertion of breast implants. Some patients choose to have fat transfer breast augmentation, which involves transferring your own fat from another area of the body to the breasts for so-called “boob augmentation.”

What Are “Boob” Implants Made Of?

If you are hoping for the look of a natural breast enhancement, “boob implants”—referred to medically as breast implants—can help you achieve your goals. So-called “boob implants” are artificial devices or prosthesis that are surgically inserted into the breasts to improve volume and fullness for breast augmentation procedures. They are made up of soft silicone shells that contain either silicone (a type of gel) or saline (sterile salt water). Silicone implants are made with a medical-grade, viscous material that looks and feels firm but natural. Some types of “boob implants” are pre-filled, while others are filled during the breast augmentation procedure. Silicone and saline implants are available in different sizes and textures. We use a variety of techniques to ensure that your results look and feel as natural as possible, such as using small implants if necessary so that you won’t appear as if you have fake breasts.

How Strong and Resilient Are “Boob Implants?”

“Boob implants” are very long-lasting, sturdy devices. Modern implants are designed to be highly resilient and resistant to deflating, ruptures, or leakage, so it’s unlikely that you will need to undergo breast revision surgery to have them replaced for many years. However, they aren’t expected to last forever. It is important to have your implants monitored with high-definition ultrasound imaging, starting five to six years after they are placed.

What Are the Benefits of “Boob Implants?”

There are numerous reasons why people choose to make their breasts larger with what they call “boob implants.” Breast implants can be a way of restoring the breasts to their previous size after they have lost volume due to weight fluctuations or aging. They can also be a way of correcting asymmetry of the breasts, restoring them after a mastectomy, or simply boosting your confidence and self-esteem.

Which Other Cosmetic Surgery Treatments Are Available?

In addition to breast augmentation with “boob implants,” Parkins Plastic Surgery also offers other treatments for enhancing the appearance of the breasts including breast lift surgery to elevate them and sculpt a perkier, more lifted appearance as well as breast reduction surgery for those who want to reduce their breast size.
