Common Breast Augmentation Options

There are many different reasons why a woman might be interested in having her breast shape altered or augmented. In some cases, it is simply a matter of wanting a larger or fuller bust. In other cases, it might be related to changes in the breasts after significant weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Your personal augmentation goals, and body type will heavily influence the breast augmentation options that we recommend for you.

Silicone implants feel very similar to natural breast tissue, which makes them a common and popular option, 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. The sterile saline solution they are filled with, also feels very similar to natural breast tissue. If a membrane leaks or ruptures the implant will deflate. However, the fluid will be safely absorbed by your body.

Breast lift procedures have become even more popular than breast implants in recent years. This type of procedure involves removing skin and possibly small amounts of breast tissue to tighten the breast and lift it for a more youthful appearance.
