When it comes to breast augmentation with implants, there are many options to choose from when determining the type, size and shape of implant. Once you decide you want to enhance the size of your breasts with implants, you have multiple choices to make regarding your augmentation. Here are some of the factors to consider when contemplating breast augmentation and which breast implants to choose.

Saline or Silicone Implants?

All breast implants come in a silicone shell, but there are variations of saline and silicone-filled implants. Saline implants are popular for those who worry about leaks or want a more economical option than silicone or other blended options. Saline implants do feel less natural, but they are very safe and can be filled after they are inserted into the breast tissue.

Silicone-filled implants have a more natural look and feel. They can be a better choice than saline for those with very little natural breast tissue. However, it is recommended that patients with silicone implants receive an MRI every three years to ensure the implants have not ruptured.

What Size Is Right for You?

There is not a one-size-fits-all in breast size. It depends on your frame and personal preferences. At Eden Plastic Surgery Institute, Dr. Ali Charafeddine will help you explore the different sizes to determine which will be ideal to create the silhouette and curves you desire. You can “try on” different sizes to get an idea on how your new breasts will fit your figure.

Choosing Your Breast Shape

Breast implants come in round and teardrop shapes, as well as different sizes. The shape of the implant can impact the size and the projection of your new breasts.
Round implants offer more pronounced projection of the breasts. They are also better for those who want to improve the volume at the top of the breasts for more enticing cleavage.

Teardrop implants have a more natural shape, which is preferred by many individuals. The teardrop shape can be beneficial for those who naturally have very small breasts or have a thin frame – the results will look more natural than round implants.

Breast augmentation can help you achieve the curves you desire to feel confident in your body’s appearance. Dr. Ali Charafeddine is a breast augmentation specialist that can help you find the perfect size and shape of implants to achieve your ideal breasts.
