How Do I Choose the Right Breast Implants?
The latest advances in breast implants, such as the Natrelle INSPIRA™ silicone-gel-filled implant, make it possible to achieve a result that can look and feel very natural. Of course, choosing the right implant type for your body type, anatomic needs, lifestyle preferences, and cosmetic goals is an important part of the process. Dr. Charles Perry, our experienced plastic surgeon, understands the differences between each option and will suggest the implant model that can help ensure the optimal outcome. The final decision is always up to you, and developing a broad awareness of the benefits of each breast implant can assist you in your determination.
Breast implants are either filled with silicone or saline. Silicone has a softer texture that typically offers a result that’s more natural in appearance. Saline, however, is comprised of a biocompatible substance. Additionally, both saline and silicone implants are available in round or shaped forms. Round implants offer a fuller appearance at the top, which may suit your goals if you desire more “cleavage.” Shaped implants, on the other hand, are designed to mimic the curves of the natural breast (teardrop).
As you can imagine, the number of options available to you is considerable. Dr. Perry and our skilled medical team can provide professional guidance based on years of experience.
