Breast Implant Features:

size, shape, profile & surface

Breast implants have several variable features designed to suit different body types and appearance choices. During a consultation, Dr. Shah can recommend the best feature options to reveal a perfect fit for you.


Breast implants are not measured in cup size but rather by volume measured in cubic centimeters referred to as cc’s. The larger the implant, the higher the volume of cc’s will be referenced. Breast implant sizes do not correspond with traditional bra cup sizes.


The more common breast implant shapes are round and teardrop. Other shapes are available, like contoured implants, for women looking for a gently sloping breast silhouette.


The profile indicates the level of forward projection from the chest wall; in other words, the distance the implant will project from your body. Whereas, a higher profile breast implant creates a more prominent silhouette than a lower profile breast implant.

Surface Texture

Breast implant shells are offered with either a smooth or textured surface dependent on the shape and the best option for you.  

Breast Implant Types:

Saline vs. Silicone

Breast implants are made from a silicone rubber shell filled with either a saline solution or a silicone gel. Both implant options can offer rewarding cosmetic results in the properly suited patients. There are many differences between saline and silicone implants. Both implant types are FDA approved and available in projection and surface options. Dr. Shah will establish the best option for your challenges and goals.

Saline breast implants

  • Filled with a sterile saltwater solution resembling the fluid that makes up most of the human body.
  • Saline implants are inserted without fluid. Once placed, the implant is filled to the predetermined size. When the fill-tube is removed, the implant will automatically seal itself with a revolutionary self-sealing valve.
  • Slightly firmer feel than gel-filled implants
  • Flexible volume allowing adjustment during the procedure
