Find the Right Breast Implants for Your Body
When you choose to enhance your breasts, your desired look is more than simply a matter of size. The volume of your breast implants – along with their shape, proportion and feel – will define your final result with breast augmentation. That’s why Hedden Plastic Surgery offers a large number of breast implant combinations to help you find the perfect solution.
Breast Augmentation is one of the most common and uncomplicated plastic surgery procedures.

We place a premium on open communication with each patient and helping you select the right breast implants.
Implant choices – saline or silicone?
Women who have breast augmentation can choose saline-filled or silicone gel-filled breast implants. Both of these safe and beautiful options are FDA approved, tested and durable.
Saline breast implants consist of a silicone rubber shell filled with a sterile saltwater solution. Saline implants are inserted through a relatively small incision. Silicone breast implants are prefilled with a silicone gel that is soft to the touch but maintains its general shape. Silicone implants usually require larger incisions but may feel more natural.
Both saline and silicone breast implants come with surfaces that are either smooth or textured, an option that you may wish to discuss with your surgeon.
Breast implants – round or teardrop?
You can achieve a teardrop or round shaped result based on a number of different factors, including your body type and your appearance goals.
A teardrop shaped result has a gradual, sloping profile from the top of your chest to your nipple. Women who desire a teardrop shaped result often want breast implants to restore the youthful appearance of their breasts.
A round shaped result has a more obvious profile with a more prominent look, a higher ridge atop the chest, steeper cleavage and an extended side profile. Women who want a round shaped result often place emphasis on a larger cup size.
