Featured Image

There are several factors to consider when choosing which type of breast implant, as well as which size breast implant, may be most suitable for your breast augmentation surgery. Of course, your personal preferences will play a major role in your decision, but our Scottsdale, AZ board-certified plastic surgeons at Forma Plastic Surgery can also help you select an appropriate size and type for your breast implant based on your body type and other variables. Here, you'll learn more about the process of choosing breast implants, which begins with a thorough consultation and assessment that allows our surgeons to better understand your goals and provides you with an opportunity to learn more about the breast implant options available to you.

What should I know about choosing breast implants?

Choosing breast implants is a highly personalized decision that involves understanding the various options available and how they align with your aesthetic goals and lifestyle. Key factors include the type of implant material (saline vs. silicone), implant shape (round vs. anatomical/teardrop), and the profile or projection of the implant. During your consultation, our surgeons will discuss these factors in detail, as well as considerations such as implant placement (above or below the muscle) and incision location. It's essential to have realistic expectations and a clear understanding of the potential outcomes and risks associated with breast augmentation surgery.

How do you know what size breast implants to get?

Selecting the right size of breast implants involves several considerations, including:

  • Your body frame and chest width
  • The amount of natural breast tissue you have
  • Your desired breast size and shape
  • Your lifestyle and physical activity level
  • Skin elasticity and overall health
  • Recommendations from your plastic surgeon based on their expertise and experience

Our surgeons also use a variety of techniques and sizers to help you visualize potential results and make an informed decision about the best possible implant size for your body and goals.

What are the different shapes of breast implants available?

Breast implants come in two primary shapes: round and anatomical (also known as teardrop). Round implants are symmetrical and can provide a fuller, more lifted appearance, especially at the top of the breasts. Anatomical implants are designed to mimic the natural slope of the breast, offering a more natural look with a gently sloping upper portion and fuller lower portion. Each shape has its benefits, and the choice largely depends on the desired aesthetic outcome and the natural anatomy of your breasts. Your surgeon will help you decide which shape suits your goals.
