Breast Implant Brands & Types at Feel Beautiful in San Diego
The decision to get breast implants is exhilarating. However, there are many choices to make before you can slip into a bikini and show off your new curves at the beach. While you may have already decided on a size, you’ll need to choose a brand of breast implants and a shape that will give you the specific look you desire.
Types of Breast Implant Shapes
There are two main types of breast implant shapes to choose from: Round and Teardrop. Round breast implants are the most common and come in a range of projections, ranging from low to high.
1. Round breast implants are full at the top, making them a popular choice for women looking to correct sagging.
2. Teardrop breast implants are fuller at the bottom than at the top, giving the breasts a natural shape. Women who want a very natural look and feel typically choose teardrop breast implants over round implants. Fullness isn’t lost, it’s simply concentrated at the bottom of the breasts.
When you come to Feel Beautiful for your breast implant consultation, you’ll get a chance to look over some before-and-after photos to get an idea of how each breast implant shape looks on different body types. From there, we’ll guide you through the options that each brand has to offer.
Best Brands for Breast Implants
At Feel Beautiful, Dr. Steve Laverson only uses FDA-approved breast implants for patient safety and optimal results. Currently, there are three brands of breast implants available for breast augmentation, breast lift with augmentation, and breast augmentation revision. All three brands offer safe, durable, high-quality breast implants, and the similarities between them are much greater than their differences. Let’s take a look at your options.
1. Allergan Natrelle®
Allergan is one of the world’s largest breast implant manufacturers. The brand offers silicone gel implants with with both smooth and textured surfaces for capsular ingrowth and implant immobilization. Allergan Natrelle® provides a full range of breast implants in 5 profiles ranging from low to extra-full projection. Dr. Laverson will use these profiles to customize your look based on your body structure and goals.
The Natrelle® collection offers three different types of gummy gels, which refers to the consistency of the silicone gel inside the implants. The gummier the breast implant, the more it holds its shape in your hand. At your consultation, you will be able to feel and compare the different types of Natrelle INSPIRA® gummy implants and talk to Dr. Laverson about which implant may be best for you. Natrelle® also offers saline breast implants in a variety of shapes that offer low, moderate, and high fullness.
