Before & After


Breast implants is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the United States. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that around 290,000 breast implants are performed every year. The procedure increases the size and shape of the breasts, providing a boost in confidence and an enhanced silhouette.


Women choose breast implants for various reasons, such as to improve their appearance, restore breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, improve asymmetry, or correct congenital defects. One of the most important decisions to make when considering breast implants is choosing the right type of implant.

Round implants are the most popular shape of breast implant and come in a variety of additional specifications such as size and projection, or how far they extend from the chest wall. High-profile round breast implants offer a range of options for patients who want more significant projection.


Implant size, or volume, is measured in cubic centimeters (cc). Although this doesn’t directly convert to a cup size, there’s roughly a cup to a cup-and-a-half size increase with every 150-200 cc increase.

Low-profile implants have a wider base and less projection, making them ideal for patients who desire a subtle enhancement.



Moderate-profile implants have a narrower base and slightly more projection, creating a natural-looking result. 


High-profile implants have the narrowest base and the most projection, providing maximum volume and fullness.

It is important for patients to understand that changing the breast implant profile will not provide a significant “lift” to the breast tissue. Dr. Sofer recommends a breast lift procedure for patients who wish to restore the position of their breasts on the chest wall after pregnancy or weight loss.



A sterile saline solution is used to fill saline breast implants. Saline implants offer consistent shape, desired firmness, and a soft feel. They are also filled after insertion, so smaller incisions can be used. Saline implants are the only breast implants that are FDA-recommended for women aged 18 to 21.


In contrast to saline implants, silicone implants are filled with silicone gel, which has a more natural breast tissue feel. These implants are approved by the FDA for breast augmentation in women 22 and older. Should you choose silicone, MRI screenings, and ultrasounds can be used to assess the breast implant condition.


A newer—and very popular—type of breast implant, the gummy bear implant, is referred to as “form-stable” because its highly cohesive gel holds its shape, even when cut. There is no risk of the gel leaking or migrating if the implant shell ruptures. It is designed to be safer and more natural-looking than earlier implant types.


Ultimately, the type of breast implant that is best for you will depend on your individual goals and anatomy. During your consultation with Dr. Sofer, he will work with you to determine the best option for achieving the results you desire.


Ideal candidates for breast implants are women who:

  • Desire to increase their breast size

  • Have lost breast volume due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging

  • Want to improve breast shape or symmetry

  • Are realistic about what a breast augmentation can achieve


During your consultation with Dr. Sofer, he will discuss various breast implant profiles, shapes, and materials with you. Each option has its unique characteristics and advantages depending on your individual needs and desired outcome. Dr. Sofer will evaluate your body frame, breast anatomy, and personal preferences before recommending the ideal breast implant for you.

Following your breast augmentation procedure, you will be given specific instructions to follow during your recovery period. Dr. Sofer will provide you with medication to help manage any discomfort or pain that you may experience. The use of a supportive bra is recommended to promote optimal healing and ensure proper alignment of the implants.


Swelling, sensitivity, and bruising are common in the first few days following the surgery. It is important to avoid any strenuous physical activity for at least six weeks after your procedure, as it can interfere with the healing process. You should also avoid lifting heavy objects or reaching for items above your head during this time.

Dr. Sofer will schedule several follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and ensure that you are healing properly.

Most patients can return to work within a week, but it is important to listen to your body and take the necessary time off to rest and recover fully.



Extra high-profile breast implants provide the most projection out of all the available implant profiles. They have a narrow base and a significant amount of projection, making them ideal for patients who desire a more dramatic look. However, it’s important to note that not all patients are good candidates for extra high-profile implants, as they can appear unnatural on certain body types.


It is possible to change your breast implant size after surgery, but it will require another surgical procedure. If you’re unhappy with the size of your current implants, you can discuss your options for revision surgery during a consultation with a breast augmentation specialist.


Breast implants are not considered lifetime devices and will require replacement at some point. The lifespan of your breast implants will depend on several factors, including the type of implant and how well they are cared for. On average, most patients can expect their breast implants to last between 10-15 years before requiring replacement.
