In 2013, there were roughly 290,000 breast implant procedures nationwide, making it the most common cosmetic surgical procedure in the industry. Breast implant popularity has risen over the years as the safety and effectiveness of the procedure has climbed to new heights.
When deciding on which type of breast implant to go with, there are a variety of options regarding size, shape, and composition. When it comes to the composition of the prosthetics utilized in 2013, most of the patients went with a silicone breast implant. Both silicone and saline options inherently come with their own benefits and drawbacks.
