San Jose, CA—Choosing the right breast implant is a much more involved process than simply selecting the desired volume, reveal San Jose plastic surgeons Jerome H. Liu, MD and Tom S. Liu, MD. Today there is a wide array of types of implant that can alter the size, of course, but also the shape and profile of the breasts. At their plastic surgery practice in San Jose, they  only offer implants that are approved by the FDA and are considered the best performing implants on the market. They recommend that patients considering breast augmentation should choose a board-certified plastic surgeon who will fully customize their treatment plan, including utilizing the most appropriate breast implant for their desired outcome.

In addition to size, Dr. Jerome Liu says that patients should consider whether they prefer saline or silicone, smooth or textured, and shaped or round breast implants. He admits that many women who come to him for breast enlargement feel overwhelmed by the selection.

Choosing the right breast implant, he says, will depend on many factors, including the individual’s body type, age, preference for incision type, and inclination for natural looking results. While the surgeon can make recommendations based on all these qualities and other anatomical factors, the choice ultimately will be up to the woman.

Patient education, Dr. Jerome Liu and Dr. Tom Liu emphasize, will be an important part of achieving a successful outcome that the woman loves. Therefore, the San Jose plastic surgeons say they seek to provide a helpful resource about the potential benefits of each type of implant, including breast augmentation before and after photos. Open and honest communication, customized treatment plans, and the best quality implants available help to elevate the patient experience beyond the standard expectation, they conclude.
