3 Simple Steps to Choosing the Right Breast Implants

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Canada. If you are considering this cosmetic surgery, here’s how to determine the type of breast implants that are right for you. 

Amongst female patients, breast augmentation is one of the most highly requested cosmetic surgeries, both in Canada and worldwide. When performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, this procedure is a very safe and effective way to: 

  • Restore lost volume to breasts that have become less full due to weight loss, age, or pregnancy
  • Correct breast asymmetry 
  • Increase breast size
  • Improve the proportions of your body

Top 3 Tips For Choosing The Right Breast Implants 

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that uses silicone or saline implants to help patients achieve the breast size they’ve always wanted. For the safest and most natural results, you must work closely with an experienced plastic surgeon who can help you choose the correct type and size of breast implant for your body and needs. 

Some factors that will be taken into consideration include: 

  • Your lifestyle and physical activity
  • Body shape and size
  • Existing breast size and shape
  • Amount of ptosis of existing breasts

One on One Consultation to Choose Your Breast Implants

During a consultation, your plastic surgeon will measure your chest and breast size, as well as your height and weight, to help you decide which breast implant will fit your existing proportions and give you natural and beautiful results. 

Choosing The Right Breast Implants: What You Need to Think About 

Apart from carefully selecting your plastic surgeon, choosing the right type of breast implant is one of the most important decisions you’ll make regarding your breast augmentation.

1. Size

While breast augmentation is for patients who want bigger breasts, you must select a size that matches your figure. Think about: 

  • Body type: If you are a lean person with small breasts, you want to avoid very large-sized implants because this may lead to implant rippling.
  • Body shape: Women with a strong build can easily carry large-sized breasts. However, some lean women may suffer from back pain if their implants are too big. Your plastic surgeon can help determine what size is appropriate for your body shape.

Future Pregnancy 

Remember, during pregnancy, the breasts may expand a few sizes. Therefore, the desired implant size may be chosen more easily after you have no plans for another pregnancy.

​2. Material

The choice between silicone and saline is inevitably one of the decisions you will have to make when getting breast implants. Both have their pros/cons and the choice will depend on your individual needs and goals.


3. Profile

The profile of a breast implant refers to the distance an implant will project forward from your chest wall. A low profile implant is very flat, while a higher profile implant will protrude forward and create a more prominent breast.

To help determine which profile is right for you, your plastic surgeon will consider:

  • The existing size and shape of your body and breasts
  • Your breast width
  • Your aesthetic goals and the look that you desire
