What Are B Lite Implants?
Added on 21st December 2020
B-Lite implants are a new form of implants that have a silicone shell. Whilst this is a traditional silicone shell, what makes it different is that underneath the silicone shell are microspheres of silicone granules with air within them.
What are B-Lite implant differences compared to traditional silicone implants?
Because of how the B-Lite implants are created, due to the air pockets that are within them makes them 30% lighter compared to traditional implants. This means that the body can experience less of the implants stretching the skin and dropping to change its shape.
With less silicone also used in the B-Lite implants, it means that there is less chance of silicone rupture or leak occurring as there isn’t as much silicone for the breasts to deal with.
Are B-Lite silicone implants safe?
Whilst new technologies that are introduced within plastic surgery come with less safety data, as they are brand new technologies, B-Lite implants do have CE marking which is a European standard for safety regulations. This is the same for all implants within the UK unless they have been FDA approved in the United States of America.
