What Type of Breast Implants Should I Choose

Breast implants are highly customizable. Dr. Nouri will help you choose the best implant type for your anatomy and aesthetic goals.

Saline Breast Implants

  • FDA-approved for women 18 years and older
  • Silicone shell filled with a sterile saltwater solution after insertion
  • Size can be adjusted during surgery
  • If a rupture occurs, the body will safely absorb the saline

Silicone Breast Implants

  • FDA-approved for women 22 years and older
  • Silicone shell pre-filled with a viscous silicone gel
  • Lower rate of rupture than saline implants
  • Feel soft and similar to natural breast tissue

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

  • FDA-approved for women 22 years and older
  • Made of highly cohesive silicone, similar to the texture of a gummy bear
  • Retain their shape if a rupture occurs
  • Feel soft to the touch, similar to natural breast tissue

What Implant Shapes Are Available?

In addition to implant material, breast implant shape can be customized to align with your aesthetic goals.

Round Breast Implants

  • Give rounded fullness to the upper and lower parts of the breasts
  • Do not have complications if they rotate

Teardrop-shaped (Anatomical) Breast Implants

  • Mimic the natural contour of breasts
  • Can create asymmetry if they rotate

What Are My Breast Augmentation Incision Location Options?

The location of breast augmentation incisions depends on the size and shape of the implant. Your surgeon will also take into account your preferences in terms of scarring.

Inframammary Incision

With an inframammary approach, your surgeon makes an incision near the crease just under the breast. This location offers a better field of vision for the surgeon and is ideal for larger implants. The inframammary incision typically allows the resulting scar to be hidden in the natural crease of the breast or by a bra or swimsuit top.

Periareolar Incision

A periareolar incision is placed around the lower edge of the areola (the darker-colored skin surrounding the nipple). This location is ideal for those wanting no scar on the breast because the resulting scar is hidden in the pigmentation of the areola.

What Are My Breast Implant Placement Options?

Subglandular Placement

  • Placed above (over) the pectoral muscle but beneath the breast tissue
  • Can accommodate larger implants
  • Great option for athletic women or female bodybuilders
  • Greater potential for visible rippling

Submuscular Placement

  • Placed below (under) the pectoral muscle
  • Can look more natural
  • Great option for women with insufficient breast tissue
  • Do not interfere with mammograms
  • Flexing the muscle may shift the implant

Dual Plane Placement

  • Upper portion of the implant is placed under the muscle
  • Lower portion of the implant sits directly beneath the breast tissue
  • Can offer a slight lift without the need for a separate breast lift

How Is a Breast Augmentation Performed?

Breast augmentation is performed with the patient under general anesthesia to ensure their comfort throughout the procedure. Depending on the breast augmentation techniques agreed upon during your consultation, Dr. Nouri will make the incisions around the areolas or under the breasts in the natural crease and place the implants either above or below the pectoral muscle. Dr. Nouri will then close the incisions with dissolvable sutures. Breast augmentation typically takes two hours.


What Can I Expect During My Breast Augmentation Recovery?

Directly after surgery, you will have surgical dressings around your breasts and chest. You will likely wear a compression garment to aid with swelling and keep you comfortable. You will likely experience some discomfort, but this will be easily managed with prescription or over-the-counter medication. Swelling typically subsides after a few weeks, but it may take several months to fully resolve.

During the first few days after your breast augmentation, you will need to get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activity, including bending or lifting. Most patients can return to work in one week and resume their regular exercise routine after six weeks. Dr. Nouri will provide detailed postoperative care instructions to guide you through the different recovery stages.

When Will I See My Breast Augmentation Results?

Your breasts will be noticeably larger right away, but it will take a few weeks to several months for all the swelling to subside and the implants to settle. The Incision lines can take several months to a couple of years to fade.

For the best results, be sure to follow all your surgeon’s preoperative and postoperative instructions and keep all follow-up appointments and annual examinations.
