Deciding on the Best Type of Breast Implants

Ready to take the leap and get breast implants? Congratulations on making this life changing decision! But the choices you have to make are far from over. Next up — which type of breast implants is right for you? Here are some things to consider.

How many types of breast implants are there?

Most people have heard of both silicone and saline implants, but that isn’t the only way that they differ. 

  • Shape: Both silicone and saline breast implants come in different shapes. They might be perfectly round or shaped like teardrops. Which shape is right for you depends on the final results you want and your current breast features.
  • Firmness: Silicone breast implants are traditionally firmer, sometimes unrealistically, than saline implants. But some silicone implants are softer to the touch than others. Gummy bear implants are very soft to the touch, but firm enough to retain their shape.

You have some additional options when it comes to both saline and silicone implants- implant profile or projection and of course, you’ll also need to consider size. There are several manufacturers of breast implants, and they have different sizing scales and availability. 

Depending on your desired results, your doctor may suggest a particular implant simply because it is the best profile and size to achieve your final results.

If you really want to make the right decision when it comes to choosing your implant, contact us today to schedule an appointment for a consultation. Dr. Mosiello will develop an individualized plan to help you achieve your goals!

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
