Breast Enlargment Information

What Type of Breast Implant is Right for You?
With all of the different types of breast implants on the market today how do you know which one is right for you? It is easy to do some research and decide what you think is the best choice for your body, based on what you have read.

Not All Breast Implants are the Same
Women sometimes take a look at their friend's bigger breasts and think 'Wow, those look great! I want exactly what she has... larger breasts!' Unfortunately, what is right for someone else may not be right for you. Since each person is unique, it is important to find out what type of breast implant is right for you. The only way to know is to get the recommendation of a certified breast augmentation doctor.

There are 3 main types of implants
They are used by breast augmentation surgeons' nation wide. They come in different profiles, shapes and filling. Regardless of which type of implant chosen, they all have the same goal... to make your breasts larger! 

  • A) The Smooth, Round Implant. 
    This implant has been the most popular implant for over 20 years! It gives a full rounded look and adds greater dimension to the breast. Currently, 88% of the cosmetic surgeons in the country use the smooth round implants,' according to A Mentor Corporation representative. 
  • B) The Smooth, Round Moderate Plus Profile Implant.
    This implant has the full, rounded look of the Moderate Profile implant but comes with a slightly higher profile.
  • C) The Smooth, Round High Profile Breast Implant.
    This implant offers a patient with more projection than the other smooth, round implants and is also a better fit for women with a narrower chest.

Silicone gel breast implant, or a saline filled implant.
The most commonly used material to fill an implant is saline, which is a sterile salt water solution that is normally found in the body. Many breast augmentation plastic surgeons use these safe, saline-filled implants when doing breast augmentation because of their high reliability and safety rating.

Another consideration for patients is where the incision will be for inserting the breast implants.
There are several ways to insert implants, but most often the incision is placed underneath the breast, in the natural crease of the breast. Other incision options include around the areolar complex (the pigmented part of the breast) and the armpit.

During a consultation your surgeon will take accurate measurements of your breasts and listen to what you want. From that data you will get a recommendation that will help you to find out how you can get bigger breasts!
