When it comes to breast implants, size matters. In fact, it is one of the most common reasons women with breast implants choose additional surgery: Their original selection was simply too large or too small.
Going too large can lead to back pain and ill-fitting clothes. Similarly, a conservative change may not create the look you were hoping to achieve.
One size does not fit all
The right cosmetic surgeon can make all the difference. By taking time to get to know you and your unique needs, he/she can help you decide what size breast implant will work best with your current figure.
At UMass Memorial, our staff can help you find the perfect bust size, even if you are not sure what you want. During your initial consultation, you will be able to discuss your needs with an experienced cosmetic surgeon and ask questions about the procedure and recovery. In some cases, you may be able to wear a temporary “implant” inside your bra to test your new size before committing to surgery.
Gel or saline? It is your choice
Your cosmetic surgeon will also help you choose gel or saline implants. While silicone implants have a more natural look and feel, some people feel more comfortable with saline. Both types of implants are safe and FDA approved.
