Forms of implantation:
Depending on desired shape of breast, you can choose a circular or peripheral implant with your doctor. Enclosed implants have a tear shape and may provide patients with a more natural appearance of breast.
Surfaces of breast can be either smooth or soft. Smooth surface transplants have a soft layer and less skin sensation. Implants with textured surfaces are called Siltex.
