A guide for deciding what kind of breast implants are right for you
Jun 28th 2021
Every woman desires fuller and beautiful breasts. However, most women are born with small breasts or lose the volume of the breast after pregnancy. If you’re also looking for the right way to get the perfect breast size and shape, breast augmentation might help you!
Breast augmentation surgery is an extremely personal choice. Thus, the whole procedure is unique and customized to the individual.
The procedure starts by discussing your expectations and desires from breast augmentation surgery with a board-certified plastic surgeon. You will also need to select the breast implants as per the look you want.
Choosing the right implants will make you feel confident in your body. However, you should understand that the breast size and shape are going to be different for every woman.
Factors to consider while choosing the breast implants:
When you are choosing your implants, you and your plastic surgeon should consider:
The natural body shape and frame size
Your breast size should balance out with the rest of your body and give you the shape you want. For instance, if you want an hourglass shape, your breasts should be in proportion to your hips and larger than your waist.
Your hip and waist measurements should be considered when deciding the perfect size of breast implant for you.
Your height also plays a major role. If you are petite, you are going to want much smaller implants than a woman who is nearly 6 feet tall. Large implants can make you look top-heavy—and even hurt your back.
If you are taller and you don’t choose a large enough implant size, you may not notice much difference in your proportions and overall body shape.
Your height also affects whether you should choose high profile, moderate profile, or low profile implants. Profile refers to how far out the implant projects and how wide the base of the implant is.
A high-profile implant project out far, but has a small base, which might be good for a short-height woman. A low-profile implant doesn’t stick out far but has a wide base, which is good for a taller woman with wider shoulders. However, moderate implants look more natural.
The size of the breast implants depends solely on the body shape and frame size. Thus, you should decide your expectations after measuring and analyzing everything. However, your plastic surgeon will answer all your questions.

The impact on your sense of fashion and lifestyle
Your new breasts will change the way your tops and dresses fit. Thus, you’ll need to consider what you like to wear and how you want it to look.
If you want to reveal the cleavage in V-neck shirts, you’ll want larger implants. If your fit and flare dresses tend to bag in the top, larger breasts can fill the gaps and help the dress hang better.
The change in the size and shape of your breasts will be followed by a change in the clothes in your wardrobe. Thus, make the choice optimally.
Along with it, breast implants also affect your lifestyle. If you have an immensely active lifestyle or do high-impact exercise, larger implants can make your routine uncomfortable.
The amount of natural breast tissue
If your natural breasts are small in size, you may not have much breast tissue. Thus, implants that are too large won’t be properly covered. When you choose larger implants but have small natural tissue, the edges of the implants will be visible beneath your skin.
When you consult your surgeon, he/she will let you know about the amount of natural breast tissue. This will help you in deciding the size of the breast implants.
Material of the implants
If you’re considering breast augmentation, you might wonder to choose between – Silicone implants and Saline implants.
Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and they look & feel completely natural. These implants feel like natural breast tissue.

On the other hand, saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater and they are less expletive. However, these implants may ripple over time.
The choice is completely up to you and your board-certified surgeon will be able to help you.
