B-Lite is the world’s first & only lightweight breast implants.
MICROSPHERES ARE THE MAGIC INGREDIENT!

By permanently bonding tiny hollow spheres in the standard medical grade silicone gel, we can make implants up to 30% lighter.

Microspheres are the magic ingredient!
THE EFFECT OF WEIGHT

The tissues composing the breast naturally lose their elasticity over time, making them increasingly susceptible to the relentless force of gravity. More weight results in more stretch. 

The reduction in weight will directly reduce the stress on your breasts, potentially improving your comfort especially when doing sports and leisure activities.

Anatomical Implants
Implants that are shaped like a teardrop, simulating the breast shape. All anatomical implants are textured.
Augmentation Mammoplasty
Enlargement of the breast.
Autologous Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction with tissue from the patient’s body.
Axilla; Axillary Approach
Armpit; accessing the implant position via an incision in the armpit, along the chest wall.
Baker Grade
A method for grading capsular contracture:  • Baker Grade I - Breast is soft and natural in appearance. • Baker Grade II - Breast is slightly firm, but looks normal. • Baker Grade III - Breast is more firm than normal and looks abnormal (change in shape). • Baker Grade IV - Breast is hard, with obvious distortion, and is painful. Baker Grades III and IV are the most severe, often resulting in the need for additional surgery (reoperation) because of possible abnormal appearance and/or pain. In some cases, Capsular contracture Baker Grade II may also result in the need for additional surgery. 
Base Size
The diameter of the implant measured at its base when placed on a flat surface.
Borosilicate
A type of glass compound composed of silica and boron trioxide that is known for its outstanding mechanical strength, high chemical resistance and low thermal expansion. In its pure form it is highly biocompatible and inert when implanted in the body.
Breast Augmentation
A surgical procedure to increase breast size.
Breast Implant Projection
A measure (in cm) of how far forward the implant will project from the chest wall.
Capsular Contracture
A tightening of the tissue capsule surrounding an implant, resulting in firmness or hardening of the breast and squeezing of the implant if severe. Capsular contracture is a risk for implant rupture. Capsular contracture is classified by Baker Grades. See Baker Grade.
Cohesive Gel
Silicone gel that has a high level of crosslinking and tends to adhere to itself as a mass.
Expander
A device progressively filled with sterile saline solution to expand and stretch the tissue covering the expander and prepare the area for an implant.
Explantation
The removal of breast implants.
Fat Injection
When fat tissue is removed from parts of the body - usually the thighs, belly, or buttocks - by liposuction. The tissue is then processed into liquid and injected into the breast area, typically to enhance the results of a breast augmentation.
Inframammary Approach
Accessing the future implant position via an incision in the fold below the breast.
Inframammary Fold
The crease at the base of the breast.
Mammaplasty
Plastic surgery of the breast.
Mammography
Radiographic examination of the breast.
Mastectomy
Surgical removal of the breast for the treatment or prevention of breast cancer. Also called “Ablatio Mammae”.
Mastopexy
Breast-lift surgery to lift sagging breasts.
Microspheres
Microscopic beads with perfect sphericity, tight tolerances and controlled particle size distributions. Used in a variety of industries, including biomedical, life sciences, microscopy, automotive, high-tech equipment and specialty applications.
Periareolar Approach
Accessing the implant position via an incision around a portion of the outer boundary of the areola.
Primary Breast Augmentation
The first time a breast implant is placed for the purpose of breast augmentation.
Profile
Defines attributes related to the projection of an implant. E.g. low, medium, high, or extra-high projection.
Reconstruction
Recreation of lost or deformed tissues.
Revision Augmentation
Refers to the surgical attempt to correct or improve a primary augmentation. It refers to the surgical replacement of existing breast implants.
Round Implants
Round shaped implants that look like a hemisphere.
Saline
A solution that is made up of water and a small amount of salt.
Silicone Gel
A gel made from polymerized Silicone used as a filling in breast implants.
Smooth Breast Implants
Breast implants that have a shell surface which is generally smooth.
Subglandular Positioning/Placement
Placement of a breast implant in front of the chest muscle and behind the breast gland.
Submuscular Positioning/Placement
See Subpectoral Positioning/Placement.
Subpectoral Positioning/Placement
Placement of a breast implant wholly or partially underneath the Pectoralis major muscle and behind the breast gland.
Textured Breast Implants
Breast implants that have a shell surface containing irregularly arranged concavities.
Unilateral
Pertaining to one side.
Wrinkling
Term used to describe visible folds or wrinkles in the breast.
