Body contouring offers many different ways you can reinvent your shape, including breast enlargement, a surgical method for enhancing breast size and creating a more voluptuous figure. If you are considering this procedure, Dr. Aycock would like to help you understand the differences between your implant options before you make a final decision.

The type of breast implants you choose will affect the final result in both appearance and feel. Viewing a variety of breast enlargement before and after photos can help you see how saline an silicone differ from an aesthetic standpoint. Rest assured that Dr. Aycock will thoroughly review your choices and explain the benefits in detail, while also recommending which implants will help you meet your appearance goals.

Saline or Silicone?

Saline and silicone are the two most prevalent types of implant materials available today. Both options come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and textures, and both are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the body. Various profile options (low, moderate, moderate plus, and high profile) affect the implant’s projection and determine how high the implant protrudes from the ribcage. When you visit us for your breast augmentation consultation, we’ll show you the various implants and further explain the advantages of each.

Your New Implants

Your ideal implants should be chosen based on several factors, including the volume of your natural breast tissue, your desired final appearance, your skin elasticity, and your frame size. Dr. Aycock will show you results of breast augmentation procedures using various volumes and help you get an idea for the affects of the different styles and textures. Special “sizer” bras can also be worn to help you envision the various implants’ final appearance.
