Your Breast Augmentation Options

If you are dissatisfied with the current size or shape or your breast might want to explore your breast augmentation options. Depending on your body type, and augmentation goals, there are several different options to consider.

Silicone implants are a popular breast augmentation option. They feel very similar to natural breast tissue, and if an implant membrane develops a leak it will not deflate. However, you will need to periodically have an MRI or ultrasound performed to monitor the integrity of the implant.

Saline implants have been approved by the FDA. They are filled with a sterile saline solution that also feels very similar to natural breast tissue. If a membrane leaks or rupture the implant will deflate. However, the fluid will be safely absorbed by your body.

Implants also come in different shapes and textures. A form-stable implant is made from shaped silicone gel. Round implants are shaped to provide a higher profile appearance. Smooth implants feel soft, and also move a little inside the implant pocket in a natural way.

If you are only interested in slight modification in breast size, you might want to talk to your cosmetic surgeon about a fat transfer breast augmentation procedure. This can be done in conjunction with a liposuction procedure. The surgery takes fat from another part of your body and implants it into the breast pocket without the use of an artificial implant.
