Women undergoing breast augmentation surgery have a multitude of choices today. After choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your procedure, selecting the right implants is the one of the most important decisions impacting your results. There are many factors to consider in choosing breast implants. For success, select the appropriate implants for your frame.

What are your options in choosing breast implants?

Today, you have more options than whether to go with saline or silicone implants. Not only are new types of implants available, but you also have choices as to:

  • Implant shape
  • Implant size
  • Implant profile (projection)
  • Implant texture (smooth or textured)

Why choose Dr. Darren Smith?

Dr. Smith is a board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon in New York City with a level of training that sets him apart from other surgeons in the area. He has completed a fellowship in aesthetic surgery and a fellowship in craniofacial surgery.

His background has given him the experience to assess patients from a unique perspective, resulting in exceptional outcomes. He can help you choose the right breast implants and tailor a surgical plan to suit your needs.

Dr. Smith and his team provide the highest level of service and an outstanding patient experience, including a comfortable, friendly environment, advanced safety protocols, personalized aftercare, and exceptional results.

What implant shape is best for you?

Round is the traditional breast implant shape. In some cases, not as much fullness is needed in the upper pole (top) of the breast as in the lower pole (bottom). In these instances, the option to choose a teardrop shape implant (“anatomical” implant) which more closely mimics a natural breast shape is available. Round implants generally look fuller at the top than anatomical implants, but this is also dependent upon your surgeon’s technique.

How to choose the right implant size

Size is an important factor in choosing breast implants, and bigger is not always better. Implants that are too large for your body could look unnatural and even cause complications that may have to be surgically corrected. Implants are measured in cubic centimeters (“cc’s”). Dr. Smith will work with you to determine the ideal size for your anatomy and the look you are hoping to achieve. If your breasts are asymmetrical, he may recommend two different implant sizes.
