Breast implants: Breast implants come in a variety if sizes. They can even be custom ordered to be larger than the usual available sizes. There are silicone and saline implants. The implants can be low, moderate, or high in profile- which determines the amount of projection. There are now anatomical cohesive gel implants that are also available to the general public.

All shapes and sizes: There are many different sizes of breast implants. There are 3 different projections. Low, moderate and moderate plus. The more projection, the narrower it will be.

Many shapes & sizes.: Breast implants vary in size, projection and shape. The primary determinant of size is the volume. Breast implant volumes range from 125 cc's to 850 cc's. They come in low, medium and high profile, and can be round or tear-drop shaped.

Wide variety: There is a wide variety of sizes. There is also a choice of low, moderate, high, and full projections. There are shaped implants as well. There is a choice of silicone or saline as well. Best to talk to a board certified plastic surgeon. Bring photos that you like. Together you will make a plan that is best for you.

Plastic surgeon: Talk with your plastic surgeon. Obviously, your expectations were not met. There may be reasons why he/she used the implant size that you are unhappy with. There may be a possibility of reoperation with larger implants if you are really bothered by this.

Yes: The short answer is yes. However, if you go smaller in size, there may be excess skin that would need to be addressed. This may involve additional incisions. It's best to discuss this with a board certified plastic surgeon.

Breasts after baby: The appearance of a breast which has been augmented with an implant will change over time, irrespective of whether you have a baby. Time stretches the skin, weight changes also alter the way the breast hangs, and so forth. Pregnancy is an extreme change of skin, weight and volume of the tissues surrounding the implant. However, some women have little change, and some change a lot.

How different does saline feel vs silicone breast implants?

Varies: In general, silicone implants look, act and feel more natural. However, it depends on the size of the breast implant and how much native breast tissue a woman has as to how much of the implant you feel. For example, a woman with an a cup preoperatively who gets a larger implant, the feel is mostly determined by the implant. If you have larger native breasts and smaller implants, it matters less.
