What Implants Can Do for You
Breast implants offer many benefits, such as:
Flat breasts may make you feel less feminine, but breast implants add volume to round out your chest and give you voluptuous curves.
People with a pear shape may desire a more balanced hourglass silhouette. Silicone gel or saline implants can help you achieve the proportions and figure you desire.
More Clothing Options
Many patients feel as though their bustline keeps them from filling out shirts in a way that looks flattering. Breast augmentation can allow you to wear V-necks, low-cut blouses, and more with confidence.
When your clothes fit you well and you love what you see when you look in the mirror, you can navigate the world with more confidence. You may feel better about yourself when posing in photos, going on dates, and spending time with your friends.
A Sense of Normalcy
If you've undergone a mastectomy for the treatment of breast cancer or other reasons, you may miss your bustline. Implants can be part of your breast reconstruction plan to restore your figure. We hope that if you need it, breast reconstruction can successfully return the sense of normalcy that you desire.

We Prioritize the Patient Experience Trish Tells Her Story
Exploring Candidacy for Breast Implants
Dr. Yee is committed to patient safety and will analyze a number of criteria to determine whether breast enhancement surgery is right for you. She will review your health history and any medication you are taking to ensure it's safe for you to undergo plastic surgery.
Dr. Yee will conduct a thorough examination and inquire about how you wish to alter your breasts. Breast implants may be recommended to increase the size of small or disproportionate breasts, add volume to breasts that have become flat due to weight loss or breastfeeding, or improve symmetry between breasts.
It is important that patients have realistic expectations of what surgery can accomplish. After inquiring about your goals, our plastic surgeon will be able to determine if breast augmentation will help you achieve them.
Types of Breast Implants
Silicone breast implants are pre-filled with silicone gel, and although they are typically more expensive, many patients prefer silicone implants for their natural look and feel. Silicone breast implants sit higher in the chest and are typically undetectable to the touch.
If silicone breast implants break, it can take some time for them to deflate. Silicone gel cannot be absorbed by the body, so rupture may cause symptoms like pain and changes in breast shape. Implants should be removed (or removed and replaced) as soon as possible.
Gummy Bear Implants
Our Little Rock, AR, office offers Natrelle® 410 gummy bear implants. These are teardrop-shaped implants made up of a highly cohesive gel. Due to their shape and composition, these implants feel like natural breast tissue and provide a natural contour as they mimic the droop that occurs in the bottom half of breasts.
Gummy bear implants are less likely to rupture than silicone and saline implants, and often retain their shape if their shell is broken. Because of this, periodic screenings are often recommended to detect any problems.
Saline implants are typically less expensive than silicone gel implants and are filled with a safe saline solution after they are inserted, so they require smaller incisions. They have a natural shape and are soft to the touch, but may feel firmer than silicone breast implants.
If saline implants break or leak, you will be aware of the rupture within a few minutes or hours because it doesn't take long for the implant to deflate. The saline solution can be safely absorbed by the body and the shell can be removed. We may be able to remove the shell and replace your implant in the same procedure.

Other Procedures That Can Incorporate Implants
Breast implants aren't just for breast augmentation. They can be used in other cosmetic procedures, including:
While breast implants can improve symmetry, balance your proportions, and add volume, they won't do anything to address sagging. If time, gravity, or breastfeeding has resulted in sagging breasts, Dr. Yee can remove excess breast tissue, resulting in a perkier appearance. Combining a breast lift with implants can give your lifted breasts enhanced shape and volume.
Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding result in changes that may make you miss how your body looked before becoming a parent. Breast implants can be incorporated into this comprehensive procedure, which often includes tummy tuck, breast lift, liposuction, and more to help reverse the effects of childbirth on your body. We recommend this procedure after you are finished having children.
Your Safety Is Our Top Priority
Textured breast implants are associated with anaplastic large cell lymphoma. Though the chances of developing this cancer are extremely rare, Dr. Yee has never used textured implants because she prioritizes patient safety. The FDA considers breast augmentation to be safe, and we go above and beyond to make it even safer.
