Many women are unhappy with the size of their breasts alone, while others do not like the shape or fullness of their breasts. Each woman has a variety of different personal reasons why they are interested in having breast augmentation surgery. Whatever the reason may be, these issues can be addressed and the proper individual procedure for you can be discussed. Customizing your procedure and knowing the different options you have is essential in obtaining your ultimate desired results.

Breast Implant Types

Saline and silicone are the 2 most popular types of implants that physicians use today.
Which type is right for your breast augmentation, will depend on different procedural decisions.

Placement of Breast Implant

Anatomical body considerations must be made in deciding not only the size of your implant, but also the placement of your implant. Breast implants can be placed either above or below the muscles in your chest. Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, as well as the implant type you choose, will help to determine the placement of the breast implant.

Breast Implant Incision Type

In addition to the size, type of implant and placement of breast implant, incision placement is another decision to be made. Most physicians can make incisions around the nipples (periareolar), underneath the breast (inframammary), or in the armpit (transaxillary). Each incision option offers specific benefits and no single option should be considered right for every woman.
