VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: I'm often asked, "What is the best breast implant?"
There really is no definitive answer to that question, because there is now a great variety of breast implants, both round in shape, smooth and rough surfaced, saline filled, and silicone gel filled.
The best implant is really the best implant for a given patient given her body, build, and her unique situation. For example, if a patient has a fair amount of breast tissue and desires for the most natural, soft breast augmentation, she may choose a smooth, round implant. That implant has more mobility than a rough surface implant and feels softer.
However, it may show more wrinkling in a very thin individual than a shaped or textured implant that has a thicker gel. Textured, shaped implants by definition have a more solid gel so that they hold their shape. By virtue of that more solid gel, they are somewhat firmer than some of the round smooth options for example.
So the ideal implant for a given individual really should be determined after lengthy discussion between patient and surgeon regarding the wide variety of options that currently exist.
