Breast Implant Options

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


One of the exciting things about breast augmentation is how many options you have to customize the procedure so you can get the results you desire. Breast implants alone come with many different options, so you can select the best breast implants for you.
Breast Implant Size
Breast implants come in many sizes in quite small intervals, so it’s possible to get breast implants that help you achieve the exact breast size you desire after surgery. You can even use breast implants to make unevenly sized breasts more equal.
Selecting the right size of breast implants is a very personal decision and should be made in close consultation with your plastic surgeon, who will help you understand how different size implants may affect your results and also your risk of complications and the longevity of your results.
Saline or Silicone Gel Breast Implants
Breast implants can be made with either saline solution or silicone gel inside the sturdy silicone shell. At Grossman Plastic Surgery, we recommend silicone gel breast implants because they look and feel more natural, are more durable, and maintain their shape if they rupture. We have helped many women achieve great results with saline breast implants.
One disadvantage of silicone gel breast implants is that they have a slightly higher cost. We will talk to you about the decision and help you understand your options, but the decision is ultimately yours.
Breast Implant Shape
Breast implants can be either round or anatomic in shape. Anatomic breast implants have a tear-drop shape, and they can help give a good shape, but they are prone to rotation, which can result in a very unnatural look. In general, we prefer round breast implants that, like your natural breast tissue, are shaped by gravity.
Round breast implants also come in different profiles. A high-profile breast implant will give more forward projection with less volume than a low-profile breast implant. This can help you achieve the look you desire by customizing the shape of your results.
