If you think that breast augmentation is a one-size-fits-all procedure, think again. From implant material and size to your unique anatomy, there are a number of factors that contribute to your final breast augmentation results. Let’s explore some of the ways you can select breast implants that are perfect for you.
Your Body and Your Appearance Goals
Your physical build and personal anatomy will play an important role in determining which implant size and profile type will best help you to meet your goals. Women with a narrow build, for example, may benefit from a different breast implant profile and size than those who have a broader chest and shoulders.
Implant profile type also influences your final appearance. A moderate implant can offer subtle breast augmentation results while a high profile can deliver a fuller, rounder effect.
Saline or Silicone Implants
You may know that breast implants are available in either saline or silicone, but do you know the specific benefits of each type? Saline implants are inserted into the breast pocket while empty, and then are filled with a sterile saltwater solution, which means smaller incisions. Some women prefer saline breast implants because they have no risk of silent rupture.
Silicone gel implants are prefilled with silicone, a material that closely mimics the texture and appearance of human tissue. Silicone implants are a popular choice for women who want a natural-looking result.

Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon is integral to your overall results. You should be able to work closely with your plastic surgeon to discuss your goals. An experienced plastic surgeon will be able to evaluate your physical dimensions, understand the outcome you’d like, and work to make your breast augmentation dream a reality.
