Breast Implant Types

The most common type of implant used for breast augmentation are either saline or silicone. They both have their disadvantages and advantages. Both breast implant types can still provide the enhancement you are looking for.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone implants are filled with a thick silicone gel that will resemble fat. This material will allow the implant to match the shape of the breast to provide a natural look and texture to the breasts. They come in several sizes and shapes and are available in either round or teardrop.

A concern that patients will have with silicone implants is in the event that they rupture. If a silicone breast implant ruptures, the silicone material cannot be absorbed by the body. Thus, the implant will have to be removed immediately.

Most women will choose silicone breast implants due to the more natural look and feel compared to other implants. They are less likely to ripple or wrinkle. Silicone implants will cost more but will provide you with a better result.

Gummy bear Implants

Gummy bear implants are a type of silicone breast implant. The silicone gel is a little bit more cohesive and thicker than normal silicone implants. They have a teardrop shape that mimics the natural shape of the breast. They are less likely to leak or rupture than traditional silicone implants..

One disadvantage is that they require a larger incision which means patients will have a larger scar. They are also more expensive than traditional silicone implants. 


Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution that adds fullness. Most women do not prefer saline breast implants for their breast augmentation, they still are an option should the patient desire saline implants. It’s important to understand that saline breast implants do not offer as natural of a look as other breast implants that are available. Dr. Neavin will explain all options during your consultation; however, he recommends Silicone (or Gummy Bear) implants if you desire a more natural aesthetic.

How to choose the size of your implant

Everyone has different cosmetic goals, but implant size is an important factor during the breast augmentation process. Ultimately, the cup sizes the patient chooses will determine how happy they are with the result. During your consultation, Dr. Neavin will discuss your options and provide his recommendation on which size will give you the most natural result possible. In many cases, he may recommend that you go with a smaller implant than you had initially wanted.

Measurements will be taken when you come to your consultation. This will provide you with an idea of which implant size will look best based on your current body measurements and shape. Dr. Neavin will also show you different implant sizes and allow you to try them on to give you an idea of the procedure outcome.

Breast implant size is of course a personal decision. Each should be based on your individual goals and body type.

Implant Placement & Incisions

  • Subglandular Placement: The implant is placed in the breast pocket between the natural breast tissue and chest muscle. This option provides a natural look and feel to the breast, especially for women who have a good amount of natural breast tissue
  • Subpectoral Placement: Implant is placed beneath the pectoral muscle, located between the breast tissue and chest wall.. This option is good for women that have thinner natural breast tissue. 
  • Submuscular Placement: Implant is placed beneath the chest muscle (pectoralis major muscle). It provides a natural-looking result, reduces the risk of capsular contracture and implant rippling. However, this has the longest recovery time.
  • Inframammary incision: This incision is made in the breast crease located directly under the breast where the breast meets the chest well. The scar with this incision is usually concealed and provides access for the surgeon to create the implant pocket.
  • Periareolar incision: The incision is made at the edge of areola, near the pigmented area that surrounds the nipple. This incision also creates a concealed scar as it blends well with the pigment of the skin. 
  • Transaxillary incision: This incision option is preferred by patients who do not want any visible scar. However, it is done through the armpit and is not recommended.
  • Transumbilical incision: Also known as “TUBA,” this incision placement is made at the belly button and the implant is inserted through a tunnel created beneath the skin and muscle. This option is only suitable for saline implants. 


Patient should get plenty of rest post-surgery to ensure proper healing. Recovery time after surgery usually takes 1-2 weeks before you can return to work. During this time, you should avoid any strenuous activity or heavy lifting. Patients can return to normal activities can usually after 4-6 weeks. 

During your recovery, a surgical garment (surgical bra) should be work at all times to reduce swelling and improve blood flow to the area. This will aid in recovering quicker. 

Risks and Complications

When it comes down to it. a breast augmentation is a surgical procedure and just like all other plastic surgery procedures there are risks and potential complications that patients should be made aware of. Common risks include infection and scarring. Dr. Neavin will go over these in detail during your consultation and he will also provide the best protocol to make sure these are avoided.

One complication that surgeons try to avoid at all costs is capsular contractor. This is when the body’s response to a foreign object, in this case a breast implant causes scar tissue to form around the breast implant. This will cause the skin around the implant to tighten and compress against the implant. Thus, this will lead the breast to harden distort the breast shape as well as cause pain. The only way to fix this would be to have revision surgery. Now of course there are different grades of capsular contractor and minor cases can be monitored and treated. However severe cases will require surgical intervention.

Capsular contracture is said to occur in about 15% of breast augmentation procedures. To this day, the cause of capsular contracture is not fully understood, but it’s stated to be related to a combination of factors including bacterial contamination, bleeding, and the surface texture of the implant.

There are different grades of capsular contracture on a scale from Grade 1 to Grade 4. The mild cases only require to keep observation of the issue, so it will not require any additional surgery to remove the scar tissue or replace the implant as with higher grades.

To reduce the risk of capsular contracture, Dr. Neavin will take specific steps during the breast augmentation procedure, such as placing the implant under the muscle. One of the best ways to also reduce risk is to simply be meticulous about following post-operative instructions and attend all follow-up appointments. with their surgeon.

While capsular contracture is a risk, with proper management and treatment, most cases can be effectively addressed and treated.
