Silicone implants come prefilled and the volume
cannot be changed. The fill amounts vary depending on the implant style
and manufacturer. Hopefully this is helpful to you. Best of luck!
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well.. I have to say that silicone implants are most of the times prefilled by the manufacturer..Depending on the size, they can go to 25cc's more.. Surgeons cannot fill again the implants after they have passed from the manufacturer ... Hugs!
come in many shapes and sizes. As an example, Allergan mid range
silicone implant style 15 comes in sizes that include 304 cc, 339
cc, 371 cc, etc. Mentor has four different profiles that all have
different sizing increments as well. I would advise you to look up your
implant manufacturer to get an idea of the size options available for the
particular style you have.
Implants are prefilled from the manufacturer. Increments other than 25cc are possible depending on the size and profile. We cannot fill the implants to a larger or smaller size after they are manufactured.
The implant company provides a card to give the patient so that they have all the information about the implants on them. Best to ask your surgeon.
Silicone implants are always prefilled. That being said, different brands/manufacturers make different increments. For instance, Mentor brand come in 25cc increments only. You should have received a card with the serial numbers and fill volume on there. Your surgeon should also have a copy of this information in your chart. If you are unhappy with the current size, they would have to be replaced.
Once a silicone breast implant is inserted the only way to change its volume is to change the implant itself. That requires to undergo another surgery. You should have the card of the implants with the implant information for future refrence.
Did not your chosen surgeon offer you an implant card postop for your records ?????? There you would see the size, shape, style of silicone implant inserted......
Yes, they are prefilled and this cannot be changed. The size of implants in the 200-300 range can vary by 20 cc depending on the manufacturer.
Silicone implants come in set sizes ie 25 cc increments.Unlike saline implants,silicone implants can not be changed.That is an advantage of saline implants in that you can add saline to it to increase it's size.
