When it comes to breast implants, bigger isn’t always better. Although you will likely want to go larger than your natural breast, don’t go so big that they look overwhelming. In fact, patients who have too large of breasts often suffer from things like back pain. When choosing the size that is right for you and your body, try to find a celebrity who has your similar body type and see what kinds of breasts they have- -this will help you visualize the size that you want.
It used to be that there were only two types of breast implants: saline and silicone. However, there are now three popular types: saline, silicone, and gummy bear implants.
- Saline: Saline implants have been popular for years and are made of a salt water or saline solution. One of the things to consider with saline implants is that they are more firm.
- Silicone: Silicone implants are known to be a bit softer and more natural feeling than saline implants.
- Gummy Bear Implants: Made of a type of silicone, gummy bear implants are popular because of their realistic texture and shape.
The last consideration you will want to make when choosing breast implants is the shape of the implant. For instance, do you want them to be round or tear-drop? Round implants tend to look a bit more artificial whereas tear-drop ones look more natural.
