When it comes to selecting the right breast implants for an enhancement, many women may find themselves overwhelmed. With the different types, shapes, sizes, and profiles available, the possibilities seem endless. Our goal at Florida Plastic Surgery Group is to simplify the plastic surgery process and help you fully understand what each option entails before you make any commitments. Below you will find a brief description of the implant options we offer at our practice to help you get a better idea of how each one can affect your appearance.
Type: Saline and silicone implants offer different benefits for the right candidates. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water and require smaller incisions to insert. Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel that has a soft, natural look and feel.
Shape: The best implant shape for an individual will depend upon their body. We offer round implants as well as teardrop-shaped implants, which have a sloped appearance that mimics the natural contour of the breast.
Profile: The implant profile indicates how far the implants are projected from the body in relation to how wide they are. In other words, implants with a higher profile would be rounder, while a lower profile would have more surface area on the chest.
Size: Implants are measured in cubic centimeters, also referred to as “cc’s”. This is one of the most important aspects of selecting the right implant for your needs. During your consultation, our doctors will have you visualize different sizes on your body with a special bra.
Ultimately, the various details about your breast augmentation will depend upon your natural body structure and what you hope to achieve through surgery. If you have any questions, or are ready to schedule your consultation with one of our experienced doctors, please contact our practice today!
