Cohesive Gel

Cohesive Gel, the most popular breast implants
used throughout the world, was approved by the FDA in 2006.

크기에 따른 분류 사진

Breast implants have various sizes from small(50-100cc) to large(700-800cc).
The size of implants can be determined by a few factors, such as width
of the chest, height, weight, the current size, and individual preference.
However, 200-300cc implants are chosen among Korean women in general.
