Which Breast Implant Should I Choose?

The Importance of Consultations with Your Plastic Surgeon

There was over 300,000 breast augmentation surgeries performed in 2013, making it one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed. With more options available, prospective patients can get overwhelmed when deciding on the shape and size of their breast implant. The truth of the matter is that women do not have to decide on a desired implant before a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. Continue reading this blog to find out more information on the options available for breast enlargement.

Deciding on whether to have breast augmentation (also known as augmentation mammoplasty) is a big decision; however, it’s only after a thorough consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Brian Peterson that a patient can properly decide on which implant is best suited for them. During a consultation, Dr. Peterson converses with prospective patients at length about lifestyle and the type of breast they desire to have and then recommends the best implant.

It’s all about shapes, sizes and feel! One of the primary outcomes a patient wants with breast augmentation surgery is in regard to the breast profile, which is how far the breast projects off the chest. Round implants are the most widely used silicone implant for augmentation mammoplasty and offer different profiles from low to high. A lot of prospective patients have been asking about the recently approved tear-drop shaped implant, also known as the “gummy bear” implant. The shape of the teardrop implant is designed to match the shape of a natural breast, where it projects at the bottom more than the top. That is not to say that other silicone and saline implants do not achieve the same effect and shape of a natural breast. The various subtle differences among breast implants assure that the style of breast a patient desires is achievable. Currently Dr. Brian Peterson uses teardrop implants in cases of breast reconstruction.  

As we’ve mentioned, there are a lot of options for breast implants that cover a range of shapes, sizes and feel. Although the Peterson Clinic in Kelowna advises patients on researching as much as they can on augmentation mammoplasty, they do not have to make any decisions on the type of implant before their consultation that decision is made with the guidance of board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Brian Peterson.
