Oakland County Breast Implant Surgeon:
How to Choose the Right Breast Implants
Choosing the right breast implant for your body and your lifestyle is a very personal decision. Dr. Ali has helped thousands of women make the choice, and achieve the look and feel they desire. He will take the time to consult with you and discuss your body type, your frame, your lifestyle and your end-goal – so you achieve results you will love.
In this article we discuss some factors you will need to consider when choosing your implants, so that you achieve the results you have always dreamed of.
Choosing the right type of breast implant:
There are two types of breast implants: silicon filled and saline filled. They each have different characteristics and advantages. Silicone breast implants are generally considered to feel more like “natural” breast tissue, especially in someone who is slender or very small-breasted. However, saline implants may have some advantages with regard to cost and a smaller incision size.
Additionally, breast implants can be “smooth” making them softer. Or they can be slightly textured, which makes them firmer and less likely to move around within the breast pocket.

Choosing the right size breast implant:
In life, bigger is sometimes better – but that is not always true when it comes to selecting natural and comfortable breast implants.
Your individual taste, your body frame, your weight, and the “look” you’re going for all play into choosing the “right” size breast implant.
Bra cups are sized A, B, C, etc. – but breast implants are measured in cubic centimeters, or cc’s. Cubic centimeters indicate the “volume” or “capacity” of a breast implant. One cubic centimeter equals a milliliter of liquid.
Both saline and silicone breast implants range in size from 120cc to 850cc. When comparing sizes, a difference in volume of 60cc’s is about two ounces. So a 460cc implant holds about 2 more ounces of saline or silicone than a 400cc implant.
Dr. Ali is Oakland County’s top breast augmentation surgeon. He will take exact measurements of your chest and breasts to recommend the proper proportions for your frame. He will also evaluate whether you have enough tissue to cover the size of the breast implants you want.
Projection and profiles in choosing breast implants:
Keep in mind that larger breasts don’t necessarily mean more cleavage. The natural space between your breasts affects cleavage, as well as the size of the breast. In other words, the wider the space between your breasts, the less of an impact implants will have on your cleavage.
In addition to selecting the size of implant, Dr. Ali will discuss the projection or profile of the implant – which is how far it protrudes from your chest. Profile types may be high, moderate or low, and should be matched to the width of a woman’s chest for the best “fit” for her frame.
High profile implants have more volume in a narrower width, which is often best for women with a narrow ribcage. A lower profile may be better for a more broadly built woman. Dr. Ali will discuss this with you to help you achieve the best aesthetic result.
Other people’s opinions, and the right size breast implant
The final decision in selecting a breast implant size should always be YOUR decision, made in conjunction with your surgeon’s recommendations regarding what will “work” and be healthy for you.
But sometimes the opinions of others whom you love and trust can be helpful. A sister or best friend can help you determine what looks natural for your size on your frame. And if you have a partner, their opinion may be important to you. In many cases we find that a woman my think her partner wants her to go “really big” – when in fact some open communication reveals that the partner is happier with a more natural look.
