Patient Information About Breast Implant Options in the Dallas Area By Kenneth Smart Jr. on September 25, 2013

Breast Augmentation / Implants - Size, Shape, ProfileIf you want to enhance your curves and look your very best, there are plenty of options to consider. You may be surprised which surgeries are most beneficial to you and your needs, which is why having a consultation with a plastic surgeon is so crucial. One particularly good option to consider is breast augmentation surgery. By altering the size of the breasts, a great deal can be accomplished.

There are many different concerns that go into breast augmentation surgery, and you may be surprised to find out how many different considerations need to be made during the breast augmentation procedure. Let's look a the issue of breast implants themselves and what choices there are regarding breast implants.

About Breast Implants

Breast implants are silicone shells that contain a filler used to simulate breast tissue. Today, there are three kinds of breast implants used:

  • Saline breast implants - These breast implants are filled with saline solution
  • Silicone breast implants - These breast implants are filled with silicone gel
  • Cohesive gel breast implants (gummy bear implants) - These breast implants contain layers of silicone that are stable and hold shape even if the implant breaks

Breast Implant Size

One of the most important considerations about breast implants is their size. Bigger is not always better, of course, since there are choices to make regarding breast implants apart from size. In fact, a minor boost in size may be all that's needed to complement your other curves and enhance your overall appearance. Your cosmetic surgeon will work with you to determine how to best meet your aesthetic goals.

Breast Implant Shape

Another important concern for breast augmentation patients is the shape of the breast implants. Breast implants come in either round or teardrop shapes. The round breast implant are like partially smashed spheres while the teardrop-shaped breast implants simulate the natural slope of a breast. The ideal option for the patient will be determined by body type and other factors.

Breast Implant Profile

Another important consideration for breast implants is their profile, which refers to how much forward projection/prominence they provide. There are generally three profiles: low profile, medium profile, and high profile. The higher the profile, the more projection of the implants. The ideal profile will depend on the amount of cleavage the patient hopes to achieve and the patient's body type.

Making the Right Decision for Your Needs

As you can see, there are plenty of options to consider when it comes to getting breast implants. There are additional concerns to keep in mind as well, such as those pertaining to incision sites and breast implant placement. During your consultation, you will be able to learn more about all of these matters in much greater detail so that you can make a well-informed decision about your overall appearance.
