MemoryShape® silicone breast implant.
There are several important considerations when it comes to choosing between your breast implant options for breast-augmentation surgery. Breast implants vary in terms of type, material, and shape, and the choice you make will determine your results.
Breast implants have a silicone shell on the outside with a choice between two different fills. Both types of implants are designed with different shapes, amounts of forward breast projection, and implant widths according to your preference.
The first option is either MemoryShape® or MemoryGel® silicone breast implants. These are filled with a cohesive silicone gel material that offers the most natural look and feel to the breast.
The second option, saline breast implants, is filled with saline, a medical-grade salt solution. They give patients perkier and rounder-looking breasts.
Patients for Life
“My breasts were very small in volume and I wanted to be able to fill out a bathing suit and bra. It is difficult to determine the size you desire to be, but the office staff does let you try on the different implants in a thin stretchy bra. The surgery went great, I love the silicone, I love the look and feel of them.”
Top Reasons for Choosing to Have Breast Augmentation:
1 Breasts that the patient wishes were fuller or perkier with a better shape.
2 Loss of breast volume after pregnancy.
3 Lack of cleavage.
4 Asymmetry of the breasts.

Which Breast Implants Are Right for You?
The best way to find out which implants are right for you is to do research in advance. The more you learn about your breast implant options, the easier it will be to make the choices that will deliver your desired results.
When deciding on breast implant size, it is best to aim for a size that is proportional to your overall frame. This leads to a more natural appearance and helps to avoid issues like chronic back pain.
A number of factors will come into play when considering size. You will need to take into account factors such as weight, height, hip width, and shoulder width.
During a consultation at our office, we can provide sizers to help you decide on the right breast implant size for you. Sizers are soft implants you can place inside your bra to help you better gauge the final look you can achieve. They come in a number of different sizes.
