Breast implants come in a variety of shapes, sizes and textures. Available shapes include round and tear-shaped in both smooth and textured exteriors. Whether real or augmented, no two pairs of breasts are the same, so obviously sizes vary greatly. Sizes also vary based on what they’re filled with, the level of projection and aesthetic profile preferences. Once a patient has decided on the size, shape and texture of their implants, choosing the filler is the next step.
Surgical options for enlarging and enhancing breast size varies. Patients electing to have breast augmentation surgery should be well informed regarding the different procedures and methods available to them. It is imperative that an extensive consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon occurs prior to making any decisions to have elective surgery.
Breast augmentation is surgical procedure used for enhancing and/or enlarging small or asymmetrical breasts. Otherwise known as mammoplasty, breast augmentation seems to be, by far, the most popular plastic/cosmetic surgical procedure in the country – with seemingly countless women electing to have it performed in North America each year.
