What is the Best Brand of Breast Implants?
Many women choose breast implants to create a fuller or more voluptuous appearance. Though some think that a brand name automatically makes one implant superior to another, this is not the case. Implant type and size are much more important factors to consider.
Anyone interested in breast implants should meet with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon prior to surgery. A professional like Dr. Phillip Dauwe can explain your options and discuss your goals.

Breast implant type
Saline and silicone gel implants are the most common types of devices available today. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater after placement, while silicone implants are pre-filled with a cohesive but pliable gel material.
There are benefits and drawbacks to both implants. Saline tends to be less expensive than silicone. They also offer more precise results since they are filled after insertion. However, some women feel saline implants are not as natural-looking as silicone.
Saline and silicone gel implants are considered safe and effective for use in cosmetic surgery. Rest assured, you are in good hands with Dr. Dauwe, regardless of implant type.
Breast implant size
Another critical factor to consider before undergoing plastic surgery in Dallas is breast implant size. Implants are generally measured in cubic centimeters (CCs). Dr. Dauwe can perform an assessment before recommending a specific size.
In general, you should choose an implant that provides some fullness without being too large or disproportionate to your frame. While we can achieve dramatic results that appear stunning, very large implants could cause complications like sagging or back pain in the future. Dr. Dauwe does provide revision surgery when necessary.
What about breast implant brands?
There are many different brands of breast implants available on the market. However, keep in mind that brand name does not necessarily equate to quality or safety. Products from all breast implant manufacturers must meet rigorous FDA standards before they can be sold in the United States.
That said, some brands may offer specific features that appeal to you. Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery can review all our options during a consultation.
Other considerations for breast surgery
In addition to implant type and size, there are other factors to keep in mind when choosing breast implants. These include:
- Implant placement: Breast implants are generally placed above or below the muscle during augmentation surgery.
- Incision location: Breast implants can be inserted through incisions in the crease beneath the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit.
- Fat transfer procedure: Women who are uninterested in breast implants may benefit from a fat transfer. This involves removing excess fat from another area of the body (such as the abdomen or thighs) and injecting it into the breasts to create natural-looking enhancement.
