A lot of women define their breast augmentation goals according to their desired cup sizes. What you really want from this surgery, however, are breast implants that look and feel good in relation to the rest of your body. You also want to choose an implant type that supports your lifestyle and offers incredibly realistic results. Following are a few factors to consider as you review your options and search for the best implant type for you.

Saline Implants

Saline implants tend to be highly preferred among women who are concerned about the possibility of ruptures or leaks. These implants are filled with a natural saline solution that can be easily absorbed by the body should a leak or rupture ever occur. More importantly, these gel pouches are inserted into the body while they’re empty. This allows Dr. Bootstaylor to establish a fill level perfect for creating a balanced and beautiful look that complements your entire physique. Saline implants are often ideal when treating women with asymmetrical breasts in which one breast is significantly larger than the other.

Silicone Implants

Saline breast implants tend to retain an upright, perky look for a long time, and as such, many women who are seeking a more youthful appearance in this area find that they’re perfectly in line with their aesthetic goals. Silicone implants, however, have a softer texture that better mimics the appearance and feel of natural body fat and breast tissue. It’s also important to note that while silicone implants frequently require a more involved procedure than do saline options, innovations in how breast augmentation is performed have greatly minimized the likelihood of scarring.

Should I Get Breast Implants?

If you are unsatisfied with the size, shape or symmetry of your breasts, are in generally good health and have realistic expectations, you will likely make a good candidate for breast augmentation. Dr. Bootstaylor understands that this is a highly personal and important decision, which is why she will stay with you every step of the way to ensure you understand the procedure and have chosen the best breast implants for your situation.
