This FAQ answers many of the questions new patients have about the options available for breast implants in Denver.
Are Some Implants Better Than Others?
There is no implant we offer that is “better” than another. There are advantages and disadvantages to every option. A lot of what is “best” depends on you. Some patients can achieve better results with cohesive gel implants. Other patients may benefit from saline implants. Our team will discuss with you all the options available, your desires, and which will best suit you.
What Implant Size Do You Suggest?
Many aspects of your surgery can only be fully addressed during a consultation. The implant size that will best fit your body depends on your body type, frame, and the type of surgery. Ultimately, the goal will be to provide you with a beautiful, natural aesthetic. Our team will give their professional recommendation, but you will make the final choice.
Are Smooth Or Textured Implants Best?
Whether a smooth or textured implant is best depends on the type of implant. Saline implants often are smooth, while cohesive implants are available in smooth or textured. In the case of cohesive gel implants, the choice of smooth or textured depends on several factors, like whether the implant will be placed above or below the pectoralis muscle. Our team will give you their expert opinion on what would be best in your unique situation.
Should I Choose A Round Or Anatomical Implant?
Your options of implant shape are sometimes opened or restricted by your implant choice. For example, saline implants are virtually exclusively round. In contrast, cohesive implants are available in both a round or teardrop shape.
The goal is almost always to provide you with a natural aesthetic. How that is achieved varies from patient to patient. In general, a teardrop or anatomic implant provides the most natural looking breast when an implant is placed above the muscle.
However, some patients prefer the “fuller” look of a round implant. That said, when an implant is placed under the muscle, the two options produce very similar results. For that reason, in the latter scenario, our team may suggest round implants.
Which Implant Placement, Prepectoral Or Subpectoral Is Best?
Implant placement is one of the most important decisions you will make. Factors that determine what placement will work best for you include your:
- body type
- breast shape
- desired result
Patients who are very thin and/or have very little natural breast tissue often achieve better results when the implant is behind the muscle. That allows it to look natural and less visible. Patients with sufficient breast tissue or droopier breasts may have more natural results when the implant is above the muscle.
