Why Consider getting a breast augmentation?
Common concerns why women may consider breast augmentation include:
- You feel your breasts are too small or disproportionate to the rest of your body.
- Your breasts are asymmetrical, or one breast is noticeably smaller than the other.
- Aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss have caused your breasts to become smaller or less firm.
- You wish to fill out your clothing better.
- Naturally small breasts have taken a toll on your femininity or self-esteem.

Your breast augmentation options:
Breast Implants – Breast implants are devices made of a soft silicone outer shell. These shells are filled with an FDA-approved silicone or saline substance and placed within your breasts under your existing breast tissue. They enhance your breasts’ natural size, shape, profile, and projection from your chest wall. Implant options also vary based on their shape (round or anatomical), texture (smooth or textured), and overall size, providing an infinite number of possibilities.
Autologous Fat Transfer – Breast augmentation through fat transfer removes viable fat cells from a region of your body with excess fat tissues (such as the thighs, abdomen, or hips) and injects the purified fat tissues into your breasts. The fat tissues are gently extracted from the body using liposuction, processed and purified, and finally injected strategically into the breasts. While this method can only increase your breasts by one full cup size, it has the benefit of being completely natural. The surviving fat will last indefinitely.
Choosing what kind of Breast Implant is for you
Breast implants come in various shapes and sizes, each with a unique set of advantages and drawbacks. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend the ideal type of breast implant for your unique needs. However, you should have a brief understanding of their differences to make an educated decision.
The section below will describe the various types of breast implants to choose from.
Types of Breast Implants
- Saline Breast Implants — Breast implants filled with sterile saltwater. If the implant ruptures, the saline is simply absorbed by the water and expelled without any harm.
- Structured Saline Breast Implants — Saline breast implants with an internal structure that makes them more natural and realistic.
- Silicone Breast Implants — Breast implants filled with silicone gel. It resembles the natural feel and texture of actual breasts, but there’s a small risk of the gel escaping into the breast implant pocket in the unlikely event of a rupture.
- Gummy Bear Breast Implants — Form-stable silicone breast implants that maintain their shape even when the implant shell breaks. It has a tapered top that resembles the natural structure of the breasts, making them look even more realistic.
- Round Breast Implants — Rounded breast implants that are evenly shaped on all sides. There’s no risk of external projection if they rotate out of place.
