B-Lite® - the world’s first and only lightweight implants

Choosing to have breast augmentation is a major decision and you will have questions. 

What implants are right for me?

How will my breasts look and feel? 

With B-Lite® Lightweight implants we believe we have made answering these questions a little easier. 

Less weight = Less stretch

What are B-Lite® lightweight implants?

B-Lite® is the first true innovation in breast implant technology in over 30 years. A unique combination of clinically proven materials that reduce the weight of a breast implant without reducing the volume or size.

The lightness is possible by using patented technology combining high purity microspheres bonded seamlessly with the latest generation highly cohesive medical grade silicone gel.

The B-Lite® lightweight implants were invented by Dr. Jacky Govrin-Yehudain, having witnessed the effects of gravity on breast tissue in thousands of women.

 

Benefits of the B-Lite® implants for you

  • Less weight = less stretch of the breast tissue over time so less sagging  
  • Patients report reduced post-operative pain5
  • Patients report a faster return to normal activities5 
  • Less weight means greater daily comfort
  • The implants are designed to provide better diagnostic images (e.g. in mammography)

Lightness you can feel

Frequently Asked Questions

The B-Lite® implants are available in a variety of different surfaces, sizes and projections so your surgeon may choose, with you, the appropriate implant for your body to achieve the look you desire.

Chosen by leading surgeons, serving satisfied patients around the world.

Increased weight equals increased gravitational pull, which increases stress and strain on the breast and surrounding tissue. This can ultimately lead to sagging, as well as cause back and neck pain. Breast movement during activity exacerbates the effect of weight which can cause discomfort and increase the stress and strain on the breast tissue. Less weight equals less strain. It’s that simple.

 

The B-Lite® gel is created by permanently bonding tiny hollow spheres within the standard implantable-grade silicone gel, which makes the implants significantly lighter. Microspheres are widely used in a range of applications. They are biocompatible and can be found in medical devices and cosmetics.(1) The microspheres are integrated within the cohesive gel and their bonding to the gel remains intact even in the unlikely case of the implant rupturing. The B-Lite® gel incorporates technology used in space technology, offering significantly less weight. Microspheres are biocompatible and used in many kinds of medical applications e.g. in urology, oncology, gastroenterology, orthopedics and more(1).

 

B-Lite® implants were developed by a multidisciplinary team of physicians, scientists and engineers, then extensively tested over the course of 10 years before being offered to patients.

 

All materials used in the production of the CE marked B-Lite® implants are well documented, safe, inert, biocompatible, and have a long history of use in medicine.(1) B-Lite® implants employ the clinically proven POLYTECH shell, used in hundreds of thousands of procedures.

The B-Lite® microspheres are small microscopic balls that are very strong yet extremely light. The microspheres are biocompatible and very stable.

 

Yes. Microspheres are already widely used in a range of applications. They are biocompatible and can be found in medical devices and cosmetics. Microspheres are common in urology, oncology, gastroenterology, orthopedics and more.(1) The microspheres are integrated within the cohesive gel and their bonding to the gel remains intact even in the unlikely case of the implant rupturing. Crush strength tests demonstrated that the borosilicate microspheres in B-Lite® can withstand pressures of over 200 psi (>13 atm), far beyond the pressure ranges women are predicted to be exposed to following implantation, including during flight and recreational diving.

 

It is the reflection of light on the microspheres within the gel.
