Breast augmentation provides a long-lasting solution and helps many women feel more confident about their bodies. However, with so many breast implant options available, it can be hard to choose. When picking the right implants for your individual needs, here are three things you should consider.

1. Think About More Than Size

If you want a breast augmentation, you’ve probably already thought about your ideal size. But choosing how large you want your implants to be is just the tip of the iceberg. You’ll also need to pick between saline, silicone – all of which are different and have their own specific benefits. 

The projection of your implants is also important. High-profile implants project further from the chest wall, making the top of your breasts rounder and fuller. Moderate-profile implants have a broader base that looks natural on many body types. Low-profile implants offer a subtle enhancement and work well for slim women with smaller natural breasts.

2. Factor in Your Lifestyle

Breast implants shouldn’t just fit your figure – they should also fit your lifestyle. For example, very large implants might not be the best pick if you love high-intensity exercise. However, if you want dramatic cleavage that looks great in your favorite clothing style, the size and shape of your implants should reflect that. On the other hand, smaller moderate-profile implants might be a better fit if you prefer a subtle augmentation.

3. Consult With a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

It can be hard to picture what implants will look like on your body. Patients often wonder if the size or shape they want will truly suit them. That’s where an experienced surgeon comes in. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ronald Schuster has worked with patients of all body types with varied cosmetic goals. While you might have an idea of the size or shape you want, Dr. Schuster can clarify what different implants will look like on your frame. That doesn’t mean talking you into or out of a specific type of breast implant but rather providing the information you need to make a choice that meets your desired results.
