What types/brands of breast implants are used for breast augmentation?

The Plastic Surgery Department at Bumrungrad International uses Mentor® saline and silicone-based breast implants. The decision whether to use saline or silicone-based implants is up to each individual patient and can be discussed in detail with your plastic surgeon.

In December, 2006, the FDA approved the return of silicone breast implants to US markets, after finding no evidence that silicone implants were responsible for any serious diseases. Saline breast implants have up to 4% risk of leaking within the first four years after surgery. For more information about breast implants please visit www.mentorcorp.com
