How big of a breast implant would be ideal for me?

For many women, the choice of implant size is the starting point when thinking about breast augmentation. Despite your best efforts, there are currently no universal standards for determining the appropriate bra cup size. Therefore, the most important factor to consider when choosing implant size is the implant’s width. The implant’s diameter increases as it expands. The strain on your natural breast tissue from an oversized implant could be problematic. Too little implant volume can have unfavorable results, such as splayed breasts.

Are teardrop or spherical shapes preferable, and why?

The look of increased fullness in the upper breast with round implants is the most popular among North American women. We stock a wide selection of round implants in a range of profiles, and we also offer the choice of extra filling for more volume.

Teardrop implants, also known as contoured implants, mimic the shape of a woman’s natural breasts very closely, with more volume concentrated at the base of each implant. Implants in the shape of a teardrop are popular, and patients can choose from a few different options, including those made by Mentor and those filled with silicone under the brand name NATRELLE® 410.

How many distinct varieties of breast implants are there?

Silicone-Gel Breast Implants.

Silicone gel implants are more natural feeling and more form-retaining than saline implants because of their cohesive silicone gel core. A rupture of this kind can only be detected through mammography or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as the implant will not deflate. Silicone implants are more likely to cause capsular contracture than saline implants, but this complication can be mitigated with appropriate surface texturing.

Breast implants made of saltwater

Silicone forms the outer shell of saline implants, which are filled with sterile salt water. Saline implants are less expensive and require smaller incisions than their silicone counterparts. In the event of a saline implant leak or rupture, it will deflate rapidly. These implants also tend to tear more easily.
