Breast implants are devices containing either saline or silicone components to fit your breasts and help rebuild your breasts.
Silicone breast implants
These breast implants contain silicone gel that feels like human fat. You may go for a silicone breast implant if you want a natural look and the feel of the natural breast tissues.
Saline breast implants
These breast implants have a filling of sterile saltwater. Your doctor inserts it empty and fills them once they are in your breasts. They are available for you if you want breast reconstruction.

Breast implants may hinder breastfeeding
You may be able to breastfeed after successful implantation, but in some cases, you may not.
