Breast Implants 101: Learning the Basics img 1

If you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, you may consider enlarging them through breast augmentation.

Implants are chosen to fit your personal preference. Before you make your decision on how to proceed, there are some breast implant basics you should know.

Silicone vs. Saline Implants

Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. They are offered in various sizes but are uniformly round. Silicone implants use a jelly-like substance made from a semi-solid silicone gel, which resembles the look and feel of natural breast tissue. Silicone implants are available in different shapes to add to the natural appearance. Whether you choose saline or silicone implants, with our new techniques, both implants are placed with a small incision.

In today’s society, it is important to feel good about the way you look. Often, breast enlargement restores that sense of personal confidence and femininity.

How to Select the Best Breast Implant

Some of the basics you’ll need to consider when contemplating breast augmentation include the lift you wish to achieve, breast implant shape and whether to opt for saline or silicone implants. Your cosmetic surgeon will explore your options during consultation. The final appearance of your breast implants will be influenced by your natural anatomy, the volume of the implant you choose and the decision you make about high, moderate or low-profile projection.
