Breast ImplantsQuestion: What are the different types of implants available and which are the most natural looking?

Answer: There are two types of implants: Saline Implants and Silicone. Both implants are available in a number of variations to best fit what your looking for.

Saline and Silicone Implants alterations:

  • Width: Figure out exactly what width correlates to desired cleavage
  • Volume: Pin-point which cup size would suite you
  • Projection: How much will stick out from your chest

Deciding which implant would be the most natural looking depends on your body type. The characteristics of your chest muscles and ribs, along with breasts, height and weight are key factors for determining which implant/size would best pass for “natural”.

The key is that you spend enough time with your plastic surgeon discussing options and figuring out exactly what you want. It is common for people to find they are unhappy with the size of the implants with in the first 2 years which often leads to additional “revision” surgery. So to avoid revisions and with so many options available the most important step in the process is discussing what is best for you with your surgeon.
