Surgical Spotlight | Breast Augmentation with Textured Breast Implant

Breast shape and density vary greatly from woman to woman. It is for this reason that selecting the ideal breast implant be handled with great care. Dr. Salomon takes necessary time explaining to his patients the benefits of each type of implant in order to assist them in selecting the best implant for their needs.

Breasts attain a more gently sloping contour with teardrop breast implants. With shaped or teardrop implants, the main area of projection is under the nipple with less volume on the upper area of the breast. These implants are the ideal choice for women who want more naturally shaped teardrop breasts, those with low amounts of breast tissue or who have experienced a mild degree of sagging.

Often referred to as a contoured, shaped or anatomical breast implant, teardrop implants are made from silicone and feature a solid texture as opposed to the fluid-like texture of a saline implant. All major brands just as Sientra, Mentor, and Allergan manufacture anatomical implants and Dr. Salomon utilizes all three brands to provide the best selection to his patients. While this type of implant has gained increased popularity in Europe, very few surgeons in the US have been able to master the use. Dr. Jhonny Salomon has been utilizing textured, teardrop implants for many years and confidently recommends it to patients seeking a more natural outcome.
