Are Adjustable Implants For Real? featured image

There’s buzz about adjustable breast implants that implies they are a hot new invention. Here’s the story: Saline implants that are filled at the time of surgery, and a silicone implant with a saline core (called a Becker) have been available for many years. The amount of fluid placed in the implant can allow for slight variations in implant size (usually no more than 50ccs or about ¼ cup of fluid) to help achieve symmetry between the breasts, or for minor size adjustments. But these are not like an adjustable waistband. You cannot keep changing sizes, or keep filling them until you get the bra size you want. And there are limits: If overfilled, the implants can become too firm, can create a distorted shape and may be more likely to rupture as pressure from the inside out is not what it was designed to be.
