Breast Implant Types

Dr. Gartside offers both silicone and saline breast implants. The type right for you will depend on things such as implant placement and your ultimate aesthetic desires. Things to keep in mind about your Virginia breast implant options include:

  • Saline implants can be filled after they are placed allowing Dr. Gartside to fine-tune sizing. Filling post-placement also allows for a smaller incision
  • Silicone implants tend to look and feel more natural and are less likely to suffer cosmetic defects such as rippling and wrinkling

There are, of course, benefits and potential drawbacks to both types of breast implants. Dr. Gartside will help you choose which type is best suited to meet your needs during your initial consultation.

Breast Implant Size

The size of your breast implants should complement your entire frame. Breast implant size will be based on your specific aesthetic desires, but to ensure natural-looking and complimentary results, Dr. Gartside will also need to consider things such as:

  • The circumference of your chest
  • The size and protrusion of your ribcage
  • The width of your collar bones
  • The dimensions of your waist and hips

During the planning phase of your Virginia breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Gartside will use various types of technology to help you envision what different sized implants will look like on your body.
