Types of breast implants

Just as there are different types of breasts, there are also different types of implants. We offer only top-quality breast implants. The most trusted implants on the market are silicone-filled implants from Laboratoires Arion and Motiva.

At Wellness Kliniek Genk, the surgeons almost always recommend the silicone breast implants because, firstly, they give a beautiful shape and, secondly, they are extremely safe. Below is an overview of the types of implants on the market.

Silicone breast implants

Modern cohesive silicone implants are extremely safe. The inside is a firm, silicone gel encased in a soft but firm pouch. It cannot leak into the body in case of any tears and there is no increased risk of breast cancer. The silicone implants give a very attractive shape. They feel soft, almost like natural breast tissue.

Hydrogel breast implants 

Hydrogel breast implants are also known as water gel implants. These implants consist of 3.7% carboxymethylcellulose and 96.3% physiological serum (water) and are 100% biodegradable. Should a leak occur, your body will naturally excrete the harmless liquid. These prostheses allow your breasts to be x-rayed. 

Saline breast implants

These breast implants are filled with a special saline solution (physiological serum) after insertion. This solution is also completely harmless and is naturally removed by the body in case of any leaks.
The treating surgeon will discuss the quality and type of implant with you during an initial, no-obligation consultation. Then you can also ask all your questions.

Different models or shapes of implants

Not only can you choose the type of implant, but also various models such as round or drop-shaped. Depending on the result you wish to achieve, together we will look at which form is the most suitable for you.

Drop-shaped implants are more often used in reconstructive breast enlargements after breast cancer, for instance. Round implants are mainly used in ethical breast enlargements. These implants fill up the top of the breast more. However, the result is also strongly dependent on the current shape and volume of the breasts.

The profile of breast implants

The different profiles also play an important role. These may be extra high, high, medium or low. The profile is the distance between the implant and the breast wall. We determine this distance of the implants on the basis of the desired result. Want more fullness at the top of the breast or at the sides? Looking for a moderate or striking cleavage? Based on the answers to these questions, we will choose a particular profile together.

The volume of the implants

A frequently asked question is "how many cc go in each cup size?". To determine the size of the implant, we need to know the difference between your current and desired cup size. We also take into account the shape and size of your breasts, your build and the type of implants. The volume is different for everyone and we will measure you accurately to determine the volume or number of cc.

It is helpful if you bring along pictures of what you would like. During the first consultation, you will also receive fitting forms. This way, you can see which implants give which result. There are implants from 125 cc to more than 1500 cc. Depending on the amount of cc, your breasts will be one or more cup sizes larger. 95% of our patients are extremely satisfied with breast implants under 500 cc.
