Which Type of Breast Augmentation is Right for You?
Consider the following factors, then speak with a Bellevue cosmetic surgeon at A-To-Zen Regenerative Medicine to learn more:
- Silicone Implants – Silicone implants are typically filled with a saline fluid (salt water) or a silicone gel. If the implant ruptures, your body will simply absorb the fluid, making them very safe. Compared to fat transplants, breast implants generally achieve a fuller look.
- Fat Transplant – Also known as “natural breast augmentation,” fat transplants are another safe and effective way to enhance the natural shape of your breast. In many cases, this type of breast augmentation entails a shorter recovery time.
Breast Implant Shapes
There are two basic shapes when it comes to breast implants – round and teardrop shape:
- Round Implants – These are the most common implant shapes used in breast augmentation procedures because they provide a great amount of lift and cleavage. For some women who prefer a more natural look, the shape is too pronounced and round; however, there are three shape profiles to choose from within the round implant family. Since round implants are symmetrical in shape, they do not pose any risk of rotation.
- Teardrop implants – This shape of the implant is contoured and, like the name suggests, looks like a teardrop. Teardrop implants provide a more sloping, natural look to the breast. Fullness is more pronounced near the base of the implant, creating a more natural voluminous look. These implants need a textured surface when they are implanted so that they do not rotate, otherwise creating a distorted look later on.
