How Do I Know What Breast Implant Type Is Right for My Body Type?

Thousand Oaks Breast Implants

There are many women in the Calabasas area who are interested in getting a breast augmentation. Whether you want that coveted hourglass figure, or you’re looking to correct asymmetrical breasts, Dr. Costanzo can help you achieve your desired look through a breast augmentation. But many women don’t know what type of implants are available and choosing the right type for your body is important to the overall results you will receive. The size of a woman’s frame and how they want them to look and feel are most important. What looks good on one woman, won’t necessarily look good on another, which is why you need to be completely honest with yourself and Dr. Costanzo during your breast augmentation consultation. This is the only way to ensure you receive the results you want. Keep reading to learn about the different types of breast implants and how each one provides different results.

Types of Breast Implants

Saline Breast Implants – Saline breast implants are, you guessed it, filled with saline solution, which is sterile salt water. After the implant has been placed in the breast pocket, Dr. Costanzo then fills it to the desired size through a disposable tube attached to a self-closing valve on the implant. Saline implants are a good choice for Calabasas women who need to micro adjust their implants due to asymmetrical breast shape, or for women who have a slightly larger frame and larger natural breasts.

Silicone Breast Implants – Silicone breast implants are the most popular choice for women in Calabasas because the silicone gel inside the implant feels and looks more like natural breasts. Though silicone implants were once considered a health concern, the newer silicone implants on the market today have been tested many times over and are FDA approved. Silicone breast implants come pre-filled in a wide variety of sizes and are a good solution for almost any body type.

Breast Implant Shapes

Round Breast Implants – Round breast implants are a popular choice for women in Calabasas because they provide a fuller look and an even contour for the breasts. Round breast implants have a variety of profiles to choose from, which helps you achieve your desired level of projection for your breast augmentation.

Shaped Breast Implants – Sometimes referred to as gummy bear breast implants, these implants are made from a silicone gel that is thicker than traditional round silicone breast implants, which means they are also firmer than their counterparts. Gummy bear implants are teardrop shaped, meaning they are fuller at the bottom than the top and are used by Dr. Costanzo mainly in reconstructive breast surgery.
