The brand of implant is less important than the plastic surgeon performing your procedure.

Women with very limited breast tissue can have a beautiful result from breast augmentation. Some plastic surgeons have a special interest in performing breast augmentation on athletes and others with limited breast tissue who seek a natural looking result with small implants.

Small implants can look unnatural. A beautiful, natural result depends upon the placement and position of the implants. Consider looking for a plastic surgeon with a photo gallery just for athletes or small breasted women.

Fortunately in San Antonio there are several ASPS member surgeons. Use the Find-a-Surgeon tool to locate board certifiedplastic surgeons in your area. Placement of a breast implant or even fat transfer may be options.

I wouldn't focus on brands of implants. Rather, focus on choosing the right Plastic Surgeon for you. Look for surgeons who use a variety of implants and will sit down and figure out your goals and desires. Then, ask your surgeon which brand or type of implant they would recommend for you.

Hope that helps.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. All of the three major implant companies supply physicians with products that can achieve patients' goals, but the manner in which they are placed is critical to the outcome. Seek out a series of surgeons for consultation who can discuss the best treatment options, and with whom you can establish a good relationship with moving forward. Hope this helps.

The three main breast implant companies in the US are Allergan, Mentor, and Sientra. All make great breast implant products that are FDA approved. The rest is all about choosing the right board certified plastic surgeon for you. He or she can discuss the different implant options (saline vs silicone, etc...), the best surgical approach (areola, breast fold, armpit), and best implant location (in front or behind the muscle). Have some fun with the process :)
