Breast Implants Options
If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, one of the factors you must consider is the implant itself. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to find information on the implants themselves, and while you may be interested in one particular product, your doctor may only work with certain manufacturers. In most cases, we are used to asking for a product by name, why should we be limited in our options in this case based on decisions made by our doctors?
Unfortunately, for those seeking breast augmentation information, there are very few resources. Some of the largest websites dedicated to plastic surgery have assembled data from the one or two largest manufacturers, but finding a website that examines all your options is nearly impossible.
This section is dedicated to rectifying that situation by compiling data from all major manufacturers on their breast implant product lines. We include information on:
- Sizes available
- Fill types available
- Textured and smooth implants available
- Shaped (anamorphic) implants available
We provide this information as part of our dedication to helping cosmetic surgery patients practice informed consent in seeking breast augmentation surgery. In particular, anamorphic implants come in many different shapes from the different manufacturers, each of which is suited to aiding a particular type of breast achieve optimal shape during breast augmentation.
Although your doctor may have particular reasons for working with the manufacturers they have chosen, you should call your doctor's attention to any particular implant in which you are interested.
Here is a list of breast implant manufacturers:
Note: not all of these manufacturers have products currently approved by the FDA for breast augmentation surgery in the United States.
