Choices You Have to Make When It Comes to Breast Augmentation


If you’re considering getting breast augmentation surgery there are lots of options available. You have to know what they are and which ones will be the best picks for you to increase the chance of getting the results you want.

Here are a few of the most vital points that your surgeon should discuss with you:

Filling Type

There are five basic types of implants based on its filling. These are the following:


Silicone implants have been around for decades already. It’s possibly the most popular type out there, thanks to its easy availability and its texture that’s not too different from natural breast tissues. It uses silicone gel to achieve its size and feel.

FDA-approved for people aged 22 and older, silicone implants are also preferred by lots of patients because it doesn’t collapse in case of leakage. This means that it won’t get out of shape even if they get punctured. On the flip side, detecting leaks can be a challenge, which can be harmful to your health. This is why regular check-ups are required for those who choose to have this filling.


Deemed as a more natural alternative to silicone, saline-filled implants contain sterile saline water. They offer fuller appearance with high projection but can look very natural in the right person. Leakages are very easy to detect, too, because they will deflate. You also don’t have to worry about the filling getting into your system because its absorption won’t cause health risks.

Structured Saline

Addressing the structural issues that some people have with saline-filled implants is the structured saline option. They feel more natural so you don’t have to have the right profile just to enjoy the benefits of a saline implant.

Gummy Bear

Also known as form stable or highly cohesive silicone gel implants, gummy bear implants are gaining a lot of traction as of late. They can maintain their shape even after the implant shell breaks so they can promise not to drastically alter your breasts look if it leaks.

Fat Transfer

Those who aren’t fond of inserting foreign materials into their bodies can also opt to have fat from other body parts moved to their breasts. This comes with the bonus of sculpting other body parts, so it can also promise a nice overhaul of your body shape.

Implant Shape

Breasts aren’t always just flat so you can’t expect implants to look like buns that will make them bigger. These things also commonly come in two shapes to help achieve your desired look:


These are the traditional implants that are designed to make breasts look fuller. They can offer higher projection, thanks to their shape. As they also don’t rotate, they won’t cause your breasts to become misshapen or look unnatural.


Designed to provide a more natural look, teardrop implants can follow the contour of your body. This makes them better options for some who want to achieve a natural looking rack. However, it’s firmer than rounded implants, so if you also want a natural feel to your knockers, you should also keep this in mind.


Choosing the right size for you is also essential when considering breast augmentation. While your options will be pretty limited, as you can’t really go all out on your first procedure, you can still decide whether to take things slow or go for something really noticeable right away.

Incision Type

You might also need to think about the type of incision your surgeon will use to insert your breast implants. There are four general types available, all of which have their own pros and cons.

Implant Placement

Deciding where to place the implant is a vital decision you have to make. This can affect the final look of your rack and determine how long your recovery is. There are three options for implant placement so make sure to get to know all of them better before making a decision.

These are just a few of the basic things you need to decide on if you’re going through a breast augmentation procedure. Make sure to understand each point and weigh your options well so you can make the right decision.
