Implant Types

Today’s women are more successful than ever in achieving their educational, career, and personal goals. However, when women are unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts, it can affect every facet of their lives. That is why so many women choose to take control of their appearance and undergo the breast augmentation procedure to increase their overall confidence.

Breast augmentation patients play an integral role in deciding how their enhanced breasts will look and feel; women can select the type of implant, size of the implants, placement of implants, and incisional approach employed during surgery. Dallas plastic surgeon Paul Pin is committed to educating each patient about her options so the breast augmentation is as personalized as possible.

Why Women Choose Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are FDA approved for women who are at least 22 years of age. Since they were approved for use in 2006, the popularity of silicone implants has steadily increased. The benefits of silicone breast implants include:

Why Women Prefer Saline Breast Implants

Saline implants have been the standard in breast augmentation for decades, and many patients choose to have saline implants placed due to the material’s safety record and success rate. The benefits of saline breast implants include:

Breast Implant Shapes

Breast implant manufacturers fabricate round and shaped implants for use during breast augmentation surgery. Round implants are used in the majority of breast augmentation surgeries, and are capable of producing good volume, projection, and cleavage. However, some patients feel that round implants do not look as natural as teardrop implants, which more closely resemble the sloping shape of the breasts.

Breast Implant Surface

Breast implants also come in two surface types: smooth and textured. Surgeons use smooth implants during most augmentation procedures; smooth implants move around in the pocket with each body movement. Textured implants have a rough outer surface and are less likely to move around in the chest, keeping the implant in the same place.
