Breast Augmentation: Choosing the Right Implants

Breast augmentation breast augmentation procedure can be exciting for many individuals seeking to transform their appearance. Depending on your specific needs, several options exist for your ideal breast implant type, shape, size, and profile.

Types of Implants

In general, breast implants are encased in a silicone shell. However, they are filled with either silicone or saline, both of which have been proven safe for use. Choosing the best type of implant for your breast augmentation procedure simply depends on your personal preference and your surgeon’s medical recommendation.


Silicone breast implants are often popular among individuals seeking breast augmentation with a more natural feel. These implants are crafted from a silicone gel with a texture that feels like biological breast tissue. Silicone breast implants have an excellent ability to maintain their shape over time, which prevents wrinkling and rippling.


In contrast to silicone implants, saline breast implants tend to have a fuller, firmer feel and a more rounded appearance. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution, which may either be pre-filled or filled during the operation, allowing you more control over the precise volume of your breasts. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, saline implants can also appear very natural.

Choosing Your Implant Shape

While several other breast implant shapes may exist, they are all designed from two main shapes: round and teardrop. Each of these shapes has its advantages, and both shapes can mold seamlessly with your natural chest.


Round breast implants provide a symmetrical, consistent appearance throughout and are ideal for individuals looking for a significant enhancement to the shape of their breasts. Round implants create a fuller cleavage as more volume is added to the fuller and upper portion of the breasts.


Teardrop-shaped breast implants mimic the appearance of naturally sloping breasts, making them ideal for individuals going for a more subtle look with their breast augmentation procedure.
