Silicone breast implants

Silicones are a family of chemical compounds and made of silicon, a natural element found in sand, rock and quartz, which becomes silicone when mixed with oxygen, hydrogen and carbon. Silicone breast implants can be filled with a firm, jelly-like silicone or a softer fluid silicone. The firm silicone keeps its shape even if the implant tears inside the body and reduces the risk of the silicone entering the bloodstream. One advantage of the silicone breast implant lies in the fact that soft silicone is less likely to wrinkle and feels more natural.
