Choosing the right type

  • Textured – Textured implants are usually made from silicone and are becoming increasingly popular in the US. Textured implants come with the benefit that they hold their shape well, don’t move around as much as smooth implants, and don’t require patients to massage their breasts following surgery.
  • Smooth – Smooth implants can be made from saline or silicone. They move around freely, which is preferable for some women and come in a wide range of sizes
  • Saline – Saline is one of the two main fillings used in breast implants, the other being silicone. Saline implants are very popular in the US and come with some unique benefits, including that they’re cheaper, move around more freely and can be used in women as young as 18.
  • Silicone – Silicone implants are the major alternative to saline. They are very cohesive, meaning they keep their shape very well. They also have a very natural feel to them and come in shaped forms, including teardrop implants.
  • Round – Round implants are by far the most popular in the U.S. They provide a very youthful and aesthetically pleasing look to the breasts. Round implants are also less prone to rippling when compared to shaped implants.
  • Teardrop – Teardrop silicone implants have been available in the U.S. since 2012 and have become a popular choice with patients who desire a natural look and feel and are great for adding emphasis to certain areas of the breasts.

Each type of implant has pros and cons. Lets connect and choose a implant that suits your dreams and goals. The best results start with great communication!
