How Do I Choose the Right Size? 

Breast implants are measured in cubic centimeters rather than cup sizes. Cubic centimeters provide a more precise measurement of the volume of the implant. Your surgeon can help you choose a size that will give you attractive results.

What Types of Implants Are Available?

All implants have a silicone outer shell, but the fill material options are Saline, Silicone, and Form-stable silicone or 'Gummy Bear' implants.

What are the Available Styles?

A breast implants profile refers to the amount it projects from the chest wall. Available profiles include low, moderate, moderate plus, high, and ultra high.

Where Will My Implants Be Placed?

Subglandular placement positions the implant directly behind the breast tissue on top of the chest muscle. Submuscular placement positions the implant behind the chest muscle.

Where are the Incisions Located?

Your Surgeon will conceal your incisions by strategically placing them in 1 of 3 Locations. In the fold beneath the breast, around the outer edge of the areola, or in the armpit.
