What is Silicone?

So what exactly is silicone?

Silicone is a compound made from silicon, a natural chemical element, and comprises man-made molecules (known as polymers). Because it is bio-compatible (i.e. accepted by the body without adverse reaction), it is used in many medical devices such as heart valves and artificial joints. Silicone is also widely used in numerous skin and hair products such as lip gloss, suntan creams and deodorants, in processed food and food packaging, most baby foods and many medicines.

Consequently, every day:

  • We absorb silicone into our body through our skin
  • We ingest silicone in our food
  • We feed silicone to our children
  • We may even inject silicone directly into our blood stream

Over the past 30 to 40 years, innumerable scientific assessments and studies have demonstrated that silicone can be regarded as safe.

Cohesive Silicone

Cohesive silicone implants have a very long history of reliability, with literally hundreds of thousands of women world-wide having had them in place for many years with no problems whatsoever. In addition, implants in cohesive silicone are widely considered to be the most natural feeling implant.

Solid Cohesive Silicone Gel

In this silicone implant, the gel is of an almost solid consistency. It is only available with a textured silicone shell. The extra firmness allows the implant to be manufactured with a ‘tear-drop’ shape and this implant type is often associated with producing a much firmer consistency or feel.
