Choosing the Right Size and Type of Breast Implants for Your Body

More than 360,000 breast augmentations were performed in 2021. If you’re looking to get this popular cosmetic enhancement, an important question to ask is: How do I choose the right size and type of implant?

At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, we want you to be completely satisfied with your breast augmentation so that you achieve the shapeliness and volume you desire. Here’s what we suggest when selecting the size and type of implant for your procedure. 

Consider your body and your goals

When you come to Lansdowne Aesthetic Center for breast augmentation, we’ll ask about your medical history and your aesthetic goals. Every person is unique, and what may work for one might not be suitable for another. 

Cosmetic surgeon, Yaqub Baraki, M.D, takes into account your body shape, proportions, and lifestyle when helping you envision your ultimate outcome. We are dedicated to helping you achieve results that help you achieve a shapelier body that inspires confidence.

Determine the right size

Consider more than just a specific cup size when choosing the right size of breast implants. Factors such as your body frame, shoulder width, and existing breast tissue all play a role in determining the ideal size for you. 

During your consultation with Dr. Baraki, he carefully assesses these aspects and works with you to understand your expectations. We want to ensure that your chosen size enhances your overall physique.

Consider your lifestyle

Your lifestyle can significantly impact the type and size of breast implants that will best suit you. If you lead an active life, with frequent exercise and movement, a moderate implant size might be more appropriate to maintain comfort and flexibility. 

However, if you live a more sedentary lifestyle, you may be more comfortable in choosing a larger size. Communicate openly with our team about your daily activities, so we can tailor our recommendations to complement your lifestyle.

Educate yourself on the implant types

The type of breast implant is another critical decision you face after you’ve made the decision to get breast augmentation. There are two primary types of implant: saline and silicone. 

Saline implants consist of sterile salt water, providing a firmer feel and greater projection, while silicone implants offer a more natural look and feel. Silicone most closely resembles natural breast tissue. 

During your consultation, Dr. Baraki discusses the benefits and considerations of each type. He’ll talk to you about the differences in implants when it comes to incision placement; silicone implants typically require a slightly larger incision compared to saline implants. 

He’ll also share the health effects of each and the potential concerns in the rare case of a rupture. Saline is naturally absorbed by the body, while silicone may leak to other areas of the body. Silicone leaking from breast implants has no known health risks, but some people do have unpleasant symptoms that correlate with silicone breast implant rupture. 

Visualize your outcome

During your consultation with Dr. Baraki, you will try different sizes of implants so that you can see different size and type options, make decisions confidently, and ensure that your expectations align with the achievable results.

Ultimately, choosing the right size and type of breast implant requires scientific knowledge and artistic vision. At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, we offer both.

Call today, or use this website to schedule your consultation to determine the best size and type of breast implant for you. We’re ready to help you feel more confident in a shapely, womanly body.
