What Are My Implant Choices?

There are several different factors you need to decide on for your implants when you choose breast augmentation. Recent advances in the science of breast implants enable Dr. Herbstman to offer you a wide range of choices, helping him to customize your breast enhancement so that your results look and feel just as you envision.

The factors you’ll need to consider include:

  • Size
  • Material
  • Shape
  • Texture
  • Profile

You can read more about each of these factors below, and we encourage you to bring your questions to your consultation. Dr. Herbstman has experience with different options within each category, and he makes your goals and safety his top priorities when working with you to find the single best option. He offers implants from major U.S. manufacturers including Allergan® and MENTOR®.

Which Implants Are Right for You?


Size

You may already have a good idea of the size you’d like your breasts to be after your procedure. It’s important to keep in mind that one size of implants might look different on different patients, depending on their existing breast tissue and chest proportions. We measure implant sizes in cubic centimeters, or cc, rather than bra cup sizes, which are inconsistent between manufacturers.

Dr. Herbstman talks with you about the size you’d like to achieve, and he encourages you to bring in photos of others as “goal pictures.” As part of the preoperative planning, New Jersey patients will try on implant sizers in our office, which fit into a bra to simulate how different options may look. Dr. Herbstman takes measurements and recommends a size that will meet your expectations.
