There are many types of breast implants available - silicone gel-filled ones used most often fall under this classification due to their natural look and ability not to produce any significant protrusion on top. The type chosen will depend largely upon several factors like how large they want each implant (volume), whether there's cavity left behind by removed tissue which needs filling up again etc.
The surgery usually takes 2 to 3 hours to complete. Stitches are used to close the incisions, which may also be taped for greater support. A bandage may also be applied to help with healing.

Most discomfort can be controlled by doctor-prescribed pain medication, although some women may require an external bra until their surgical bandages are removed in about two weeks time. You will likely experience a burning sensation at the nipples for about two weeks after which it should subside as bruising fades away or goes away completely depending on how fast you heal from this procedure; however stitch removal takes longer than healing does.
