Your breasts define your figure and are a beautiful feminine feature. However, not everyone is blessed with the breasts they want. Many women have smaller or uneven breasts, and choose to undergo a custom augmentation.
Modern breast implant surgery, performed with the latest techniques, can help you enjoy the figure you have always wanted, enhanced with plump, beautiful, natural-looking breasts.

Silicone or Saline? What Type of Implant is Right for You?
There are several options when it comes to choosing breast implants. We take the time during our consultations to listen to your personal aesthetic goals to personalize the process. You have two general choices: silicone or saline. Silicone implants more closely mimic the weight of natural breast tissue, while saline implants require a shorter incision.
Silicone gel has been used in breast implants for over 50 years and is used to manufacture 4th and 5th generation implants, available in a cohesive or highly cohesive gel. The current generation of implants also allows for customizing the cohesiveness of the gel, which can change the appearance and feel, reflecting your personal preference.
The Advantages of Silicone Implants
Advantages to silicone implants are a more natural feel and less risk of rippling. They are available in a vast range of sizes, widths, and levels of projection.
Saline (saltwater) is natural, in that our bodies are mostly water. If an implant ruptures, the saline is absorbed into the body safely. Saline implants require a shorter incision, as they are filled after placement. These implants are usually best for women with a larger quantity of natural breast tissue.
What are the disadvantages of saline implants?
Saline implants have a higher risk of rippling, a condition in which the folds on the implant shell become visible under the skin surface. Saline implants also have a slightly less natural feel when compared to silicone.
Generally, most women choose silicone implants as they look and feel more natural in weight, softness, and bounce.
Breast Augmentation with Natural Fat Transfer
You also have the option to subtly increase the size of your breasts with natural fat transfer. This procedure has the advantage of being entirely natural and increasing your breast volume by about one cup size.
Your First Consultation
We will spend considerable time in your initial consultation, as well as in your preoperative visits, to help you choose the perfect size, shape, and projection, and filler material. We will help to determine the best implant based on your personal goals, along with measurements, images, and the ability to “try on” different breast implants to find the ideal size and shape. We are very experienced in breast augmentation and offer advice and guidance to ensure you choose implants that bring you confidence in all the years ahead.
