There are two types of breast implants to choose from and it really just depends on your preference.

  • Silicone – Silicone breast implants are just as they sound, made of silicone gel. These implants flow within its shell a little differently than saline but still offers a natural and vivacious look. One big difference is that patients must be over the age of 22 to be offered the option of silicone implants for a breast augmentation as stated by the FDA.
  • Saline – Saline is sterile saltwater and these implants are available to anyone over the age of 18. This procedure is slightly different though, with saline implants the empty shell is inserted into the breast and then once in, it is filled to the desired size with saline fluid. These implants are more likely to be felt or seen when under very thin skin.

However, when it comes to size that’s a different story. Size depends on what look you’re going for, your body size, shape, breast fullness, and what will be ideal for your health as well.

Breast Lift Procedure Overview

Over time your breasts can begin to sag, lose volume, and look less youthful than they once did. This can be due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, and aging. While it is entirely normal for the appearance of your breasts to change over time, you may feel less than confident in your appearance.

If you’re looking to improve the appearance of your breast volume, remove excess skin, and regain your youthful breasts, a breast lift might be right for you.

What happens during the breast lift procedure

In this procedure, incisions are made to sagging breasts in order to lift the breast and improve the overall contour. After the incisions are made, the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped, the nipple and areola are repositioned, and any excess breast skin is removed.

There are four ways the procedure can be performed. Depending on the extent of the breast lift you need, your doctor will choose one of the following options:

  • Anchor: 3 basic incisions, one around the areola, one vertical to the breast crease, and one horizontal along the breast crease
  • Lollipop: 2 basic incisions, one around the areola and one vertical to the breast crease
  • Periareolar: 1 incision around the areola
  • Crescent: 1 along the top half of the areola

  2. You can combine the procedure with others– Many of our patients choose to combine their breast implant procedure with other procedures such as a breast lift or tummy tuck. Combining procedures can also mean that your recovery time is combined and you can reach your overall goals quicker.
  3. Scarring can be minimal and practically invisible– Each patient heals differently, but our doctors are extremely conscious about incision placement so your scarring is minimal, and for some patients completely unnoticeable once fully recovered.
  4. There are other options to enlarge your breasts without implants– Some patients aren’t sure that they want to commit to getting implants, in that case, a fat-grafting breast augmentation might be right for you. In this procedure, we can remove fat from other areas of your body and place it in your breast to enlarge it using your own fat.
