There are a lot of ways to customize your breast enhancement procedure to suit your body and your individual taste. For breast augmentation results that align with your personal goals,* take time to research your options. Once you decide on the perfect time to have breast augmentation and find the right plastic surgeon, there are still some important choices to make.
Selecting a Size that Suits You
While some women prefer very large implants, many request breast augmentation results that will look more natural. Depending on your unique dimensions, the amount of breast tissue you already have and your aesthetic preferences, the right size for you could be quite different from what’s right for someone else.
Finding the Right Shape
Once upon a time, there was only the round implant. Today, you can select teardrop shaped implants that more closely resemble the shape of natural breasts. The right shape for you depends on whether you like more fullness at the top of your breasts or whether the more realistic contours of a teardrop shaped implant are more aesthetically pleasing to you.
The shape of your implant will play just as important a role as size in determining how your breast augmentation results will look.*
Deciding between Silicone and Saline
Another choice that will affect your breast augmentation results is whether you’ll have saline or silicone implants. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and generally feel more firm than silicone implants. Silicone implants are filled with a gel that feels very similar to human fat, meaning that silicone implants often look and feels more like natural breasts than saline implants.*
