Breast augmentation can add volume to the breasts for more youthful and sensual contours, helping women attain a new confidence in their appearance. One of the first decisions you’ll make after you’ve chosen to receive a breast augmentation or a breast lift with augmentation is the type of implants that are best for your goals. Board-certified plastic surgeon Tiffany McCormack, MD offers a number of different types, shapes, and sizes of implants, and can even show you how they may ultimately look with state-of-the-art Portrait 3D imaging. Options available at our practice can give you the best possible results that look both natural and beautiful.
There are only two major types of breast implants – saline and silicone; however, each type of implant come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Everything depends on your own individual goals, and what may be best for your unique body type. Adding volume to the breasts is as much about improving the proportions of your breasts as it is about making them larger. At your initial consultation, Dr. McCormack will show you an array of breast implant options – silicone and saline varieties; round and tear-drop shaped implants; and a range of sizes. Plus, she can input your medical data and the breast implant options you are considering into the VECTRA breast imaging computer system that will create a 3D digital model of the potential results. This image can be modified based on your choices. While no technology can claim a 100% accuracy rate in predicting the future, this imaging program can give you a general idea of the potential results.
Breast implants also come in different profile ranges: low, moderate, and high. High profile breast implants typically offer the most forward projection, and are often beneficial for women with a narrower chest. Dr. McCormack will talk with you about all of your options, take your specific measurements, and answer all of your questions so that you make the best choice for your needs.
Both silicone and saline breast implants have advantages and disadvantages over the other. During your initial consultation, Dr. McCormack will discuss the differences in further detail and help you decide which option may be the best for your goals.
