Choosing the best possible shape and size for breast implants is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when considering breast augmentation. During the initial consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Scott at The Plastic Surgery Center, patients who are looking to add volume and fullness to the breasts are shown a number of different options when it comes to the type, shape, and size of breast implants. Dr. Scott believes that patients who are well-educated about the procedure itself and the potential results from various implant options are typically the most satisfied with the outcome, which is why the consultation is a terrific way to help you become familiar with the many available choices and how each one can benefit your needs and goals.
One of the things to remember about breast implants is that “bigger” does not always translate into “better.” The best results come from implants that take into consideration both your individual body proportions and your desired goals. Dr. Scott will talk with you about your goals and advise you on the breast implant size that can help you attain the most natural-looking results. He will also present a variety of options to you so you can visualize the size differences.

In terms of shape, breast implants typically come in round and “teardrop” varieties. Round implants are often useful for patients who are looking to enhance fullness in the upper breast areas. “Teardrop” breast implants, also known as anatomically shaped implants, can also be beneficial for a select group of patients.
The decision to use silicone or saline implants is based upon personal preference. Eighty – five to ninety percent of women are choosing silicone implants over saline due to their more natural shape and feel.
Dr. Scott tries to make the decision-making process as easy as possible by giving you the tools you need to achieve your goals with results that look beautiful and natural.
