Like many women, you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts and you’re ready for enhancement. One of the first things you’ll need to decide is the kind of implant you’d like to have. There is no right or wrong answer for every woman. Some women may instantly know which type is right for them while others might need a little extra guidance to determine what will look best on their body.
Dr. Lawton is a board-certified surgeon who routinely performs breast enhancement procedures of all types. Dr. Lawton understands there are many reasons one type of implant may appeal to some over another which is why she offers both saline and silicone implants at her Newport Beach office. To start the decision-making process and find out what’s right for you, Dr. Lawton may take the following into consideration.
#1: Your Body Type
No two women are exactly the same. Your current breast anatomy can play a significant role in which type of implant will look the best. Conversely, what looks good on one woman’s frame might look completely different on yours. Dr. Lawton will show you several examples of before and after photos with women of similar builds to help you have a better idea of what to expect.
#2: Your Aesthetic Preferences
Every woman has specific goals in mind. Some women may find the fuller, rounded appearance of saline implants more aesthetically pleasing. Meanwhile, other women prefer the more natural contours of teardrop-shaped silicone implants. Dr. Lawton works closely with each woman individually to ensure an optimal outcome according to her aesthetic preferences.

#3: Implant Placement
Again, your body type may affect where your implant will be placed. Women that have significant breast tissue might undergo a sub-muscular augmentation. In these cases, either saline or silicone implants may be used. However, women who have the implant placed above the muscle may want to consider silicone implants to prevent a rippled appearance down the line.
#4: Your Concerns
If you’d solely like to enhance the size and shape of your breasts, either implant can help you achieve your goals. Women that would also like to address sagging breasts may prefer a rounded implant for a more lifted appearance. Some women find silcone implants to be more natural-looking and offer a perkier appearance after pregnancy or age-related volume loss.
What’s Right for You?
Ultimately, it’s up to you. There is no one-size-fits-all implant for every woman. Breast augmentation is a highly-customizable procedure designed to improve your self-image. Dr. Lawton sees many women for breast enhancement and knows the ins and outs of each implant type. She’ll be able to help guide you towards what’s right for you at the time of your initial consultation.
Dr. Lawton is a wonderful surgeon. I received a breast augmentation from her with Allergans new shaped 410 implants and I LOVE my results. They look very natural and there was barely any downtime. I was back to work four days later and no one could even tell. The staff is great but mostly I loved the time Dr. Lawton spent with me. I felt that as a woman she truly understood what I wanted. I would definitely refer her to friends and family.
