Breast Implant Sizing: Bigger isn’t always better. When choosing the size of your breast implants, consider:
- Your height, weight, chest, and breast dimensions
- The amount of breast tissue already present
- Skin elasticity
- Desired cup size
- Your lifestyle and physical activity
Breast Implant Placement: There are two breast implant placement options to choose from:
- Sub-glandular placement (over the chest muscle), which allows for a larger implant, creates more lift and more defined cleavage and offers a shorter recovery time.
- Sub-muscular placement (under the chest muscle), which offers petite women with minimal natural breast tissue better coverage of the implant. It creates a more natural look and feel, less unnatural motion, less interference with mammograms, and a reduced risk of capsular contracture and rippling. The sub-muscular placement also provides more support and reduces the likelihood of sagging.
Incision Placement: There are three incision options to choose from:
Saline vs. Silicone: Both saline and silicone breast implants can achieve excellent results that will dramatically improve your appearance.
- Saline breast implants consist of a silicone shell filled with a sterile saline solution and are approved by the FDA for use with women over the age of 18. The saline solution is safely absorbed by your body in the event of a rupture. Saline breast implants are filled by your surgeon, providing greater control over size and symmetry.
- Silicone breast implants offer a more natural look and feel and are most often recommended by our surgeons.
