What Can Breast Augmentation Address?

  • Small breasts

Breast implants can be used to increase breast size and improve breast shape.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?

Women of all ages can benefit from breast augmentation surgery with implants. In addition to creating a shapelier physique with more attractive and feminine curves, breast augmentation can help increase breast symmetry and balance body proportions. Women love expanding their wardrobe and often feel more confident with their figures following breast enhancement surgery.

Breast augmentation is commonly combined with breast lift surgery to address sagging along with volume loss or performed as a part of a more comprehensive Mommy Makeover.

What Are Your Breast Implant Options?

Saline Implants

Saline implants consist of a silicone shell with a saltwater solution. These implants are available in a wide variety of sizes and profiles.

Saline implants offer a range of benefits that silicone implants do not. Because these implants are inserted empty and filled once they are in the breast pocket, they require a much smaller incision that tends to heal quicker. Additionally, should the implant develop a tear (rupture), the saline solution is safely and harmlessly absorbed by the body.

However, due to the thin consistency of the solution, saline implants must be filled full to maintain shape. Because of this, saline implants tend to appear rounder and firmer and are often more conspicuous / less natural-looking than silicone implants. They are also more likely to develop visible rippling and folds.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone implants consist of cohesive or highly cohesive silicone gel encased in a silicone shell. Because of the thick consistency, these implants look and feel much like your natural breast tissue, giving these a more natural-looking result compared to saline implants.

Silicone implants are available in various sizes, shapes, and profiles. Cohesive gel implants are often round in shape, while highly cohesive gel implants (also known as “gummy bear” implants) are round.

Because silicone implants are pre-filled, they require a longer incision than saline implants.

Implant Profile

Implant profile describes the correlation between the implant base and how much it projects. Profiles run from low to high.

Low profile implants have a wide base but do not project far from the chest. These implants are ideal for women with wider chest walls. High profile implants have a smaller base diameter but project further off the chest. These implants tend to work best for petite women with narrower chest walls.

Your implant choice can affect how your breasts look and feel after surgery. Implant type plays an important role in achieving breasts that have a natural appearance, but implant size is just as vital. The VECTRA® XT is a 3D imaging system that simulates your possible results. By analyzing patient anatomy and measurements, this system allows you to see what you could look like with various-sized implants.

Imaging technology is a crucial part of your initial consultation because it provides a glimpse at your post-surgery body. This realistic image allows you to choose an implant size that will give you the look that you desire.

Patients can return to light physical activity. Swelling will continue to resolve over the coming weeks gradually. Many women comment on how their implants sit high on their chest and are firmer than desired. This is temporary. Implants will soften and “drop” as they continue to heal.
