The Anatomy of an Implant
Today on Breast Implants USA we will be discussing the anatomy of a breast implant. The main components of breast implants include the shell, which is the outside layer, and is also known as the envelope or lumen. There is the filler, which is inserted into the shell of the breast. And the material that covers the hole where the filler is inserted is called the patch. Usually the shell is made of a single layer known as a "single lumen", however some implants have a double layer with a shell within a shell, then referred to as a double lumen.
