Silicone breast implants are filled with a silicone gel that resembles the feel of natural breast tissue. Silicone breast implants are FDA approved for women 22 and older
The majority of patients (90 to 95 percent) choose silicone implants, as they have a reduced rupture rate compared to saline implants and are generally considered a better long-term investment.
Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and are FDA approved for women 18 and older. These tend to provide a perkier look, are most cost-effective, and are easier to troubleshoot in rare cases of implant deflation.

Round implants are spherical and provide a full appearance with enhanced projection. These implants are beneficial because breast shape will be maintained even if the implants rotate within the breast pocket.
Smooth implants have an outer implant shell with a sleek texture. Smooth texture is ideal for round implants because it allows the implants to move within the breast pocket without distortion.
Implant profile determines the projection of the implant from the chest and is based on the size of the implant width and base.
High profile implants have a narrow base to provide the most projection and achieve full, round breasts.
Moderate profile implants have a wider base with less projection than high profile implants but still provide a more rounded breast shape.
Moderate Plus Profile
Breast implants with a moderate plus profile provide more fullness toward the bottom and sides of the breast for a natural appearance.
