Often the first decision our breast augmentation patients ask about is implant size. It's important to understand that implant size and bra cup size are not the same thing. Our surgeons take into account physical attributes including the amount of breast tissue you have, and the natural placement and width of your breasts, in addition to your desired breast size, when recommending breast implant size. They strive to provide results that look naturally beautiful.
Breast implants have a solid silicone shell that may be filled with either saline solution (sterile saltwater) or elastic silicone gel. Silicone implants feel more like natural breast tissue and are very popular for women who want their breasts to feel very natural. Saline implants are popular among women who are concerned about implant rupture since saline can be harmlessly absorbed by the body. Both implant types are FDA-approved for safety and each has advantages and tradeoffs. The cost of breast augmentation is also affected by your choice of implant material.
Your surgeon will help you understand other choices for your breast implants that can further personalize your final breast augmentation results. These choices include:
- Shape can be round or contoured (also called teardrop or anatomical). Round implants provide more fullness at the upper part of the breast than contoured implants.
- Profile specifies how far the implant projects from the chest. Options such as moderate, moderate plus, or high profile allow your surgeon match your desired breast size with your individual body frame.
- Texture describes the outside covering of the implant, which is either smooth or textured. Teardrop implants are textured to help keep them oriented properly. Round implants are available with smooth and textured coverings.
