Dr. Brown spends time with each of his breast augmentation patients to discuss his expert opinion when it comes to which implants will be best. But, as with all surgeries, it helps to have an idea that you can discuss with your plastic surgeon.

There’s a few different choices you’ll have to make when it comes to your implants.

Choose Your Breast Implants: Style

  • Round Implants – Can make breasts appear fuller, more projected.
  • Teardrop Implants – Resemble a more natural shaped breast.

Choose Your Breast Implants: Type

  • Saline – Filled with sterile salt water.
  • Silicone – Filled with silicone gel.
  • Gummy Bear – Shaped implant, filled with silicone, thicker than traditional silicone. Holds its shape if ruptured.
