Your Implant Choices

You have many choices in breast implants. Dr. Nima will review the pros and cons of each option, and help you select the implants that best align with your goals.


Saline implants are filled with saline (saltwater) after insertion. These implants are usually less expensive than silicone and can sometimes ripple, deflate or leak, requiring immediate attention. Saline implants typically require the smallest incision under the breast, near the armpit or through the navel.

Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel and offer amore natural look and feel than saline implants. They are generally less likely to ripple than saline-filled implants. Should a rupture occur, the gel will not leak into the body and is typically not noticeable.


Implants come in a wide range of sizes. The size that is right for you depends on your body frame, the amount of natural breast tissue you have and the breast size you hope to achieve.


Implants are available in round and teardrop shapes. Round implants offer equal projection on the top and bottom. Teardrop implants have as lightly tapered shape, with greater projection on the bottom.

Breast Augmentation Procedure Details

Traditional breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis with anesthesia.

Dr. Nima will begin by creating incisions in the pre-determined location: around your areola, within your breast crease or near your armpit. (Rarely, he places saline implants through an incision around the navel.) Through the incisions, Dr. Nima will insert the implants above or below your chest muscle.

After Dr. Nima has properly positioned the implants, he will close the incisions with sutures and bandage your breasts. A compression garment may be placed around your chest, and you will be permitted to go home shortly after your procedure.

Breast Augmentation Recovery and Results

Plan for a few days of downtime, during which you must refrain from strenuous physical activity and heavy lifting. You will need to wear your compression garment for several weeks to help support your healing tissues. Dr. Nima and our team will provide complete instructions to care for your breasts and incisions, and we will meet with you for follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery progress. Dr. Nima will also clear you to resume work, exercise and socializing whenever appropriate.

You will notice an immediate improvement in your breast fullness and size after surgery. As your post-operative swelling resolves and your incisions heal, you can begin to enjoy your results. Dr. Nima will advise when you can switch back to normal bras with underwire.
