Know Your Different Implant Options.

During your consultation, the type of filler (implant or fat transfer) will be selected based on your body size and build, and the results which you hope to attain. Today, the most common modern implants are saline or silicone gel, both widely selected by patients and approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), though other options include gummy bear implants and fat grafting (a fat transfer).

Determining the best implant option for you is a very personal, tailored decision. You should consider the texture, the feel, the size, and the material, along with your desired final outcome. Dr. Vinyard always has samples of the silicone and saline implants for you to feel and touch as you determine which you prefer. Throughout your lifetime, your breasts and the desires for your appearance may continue to change. It’s possible that the way you desire to look in your 20’s will differ from your 40’s. If you choose to adjust, reduce, or enhance your breast augmentation, that is always possible.

Note: Patients must be at least 18 years old to receive saline implants, and at least 22 years old to receive silicone implants.


Size is determined by the number of CCs of saline, silicone, or fat being utilized within the implants. To determine the ideal implantation size for you, Dr. Vinyard will measure the original breast tissue which you have alongside understanding the size breasts you hope to achieve through the surgery.

Breast implant profile refers to the projection: what is visible from the side view of the breasts. There are options from low to extra high profiles.

Is Fat Transfer For You?

If you are choosing to have a fat transfer in addition to your breast augmentation, the process requires an additional surgery. The fat is first removed from a predetermined location with ample tissue to collect. Most often, fat is removed from the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, or flanks. The choice of two surgeries will require extra careful care after the procedures are completed to ensure that your body recovers properly and thoroughly.

Overwhelmed With Choices?

All of these options can sound overwhelming at first, but don’t worry, selecting the appropriate implant is easy once you meet with Dr. Vinyard and clearly discuss your goals and preferences. The VIPS team will guide you through every step of the process, ensuring that you’re 110% satisfied with every choice and step of the decision to undergo breast augmentation.

Are You A Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

If you are thinking about having a breast augmentation, it is critical that you do it for yourself and nobody else. Choosing to enlarge your breasts will impact your life in a very personal, intimate, and constant way. This is not a decision you should ever feel pressured into by a spouse, significant other, or friend.

However, if you are unhappy with the breasts you see in the mirror each morning, if you have spent years wishing your chest was larger or comparing yourself to others, if you are convinced that your self-confidence would be significantly higher if you were to have larger breasts – breast augmentation may be just right for you!

Ideal candidates must be healthy, have fully developed breasts, and meet the 18-22 age minimum, as required by law. Additionally, if your breasts have been affected by pregnancy, nursing, aging, weight gain, or weight loss, this procedure can rejuvenate your breasts, increase their volume, and perk up the projection as seen from a side view.

Here’s What To Expect…

During Your VIPS Consultation.

When it comes to breast augmentation surgeries, Dr. Vinyard invests a significant amount of time in the consultation (1 – 1.5 hours) in order to ensure your complete satisfaction with the final results. You will be able to compare your current breast size with multiple other breast sizes to find the perfect size, shape, profile, and texture for you.

Dr. Vinyard will spend time with you, one-on-one, discussing the differences between the various types of breast implants and helping you evaluate the ideal option for your body. There are a lot of myths and false information about breast implants. Dr. Vinyard will explain the science and facts about breast implants to you.

During The Augmentation Surgery.

Breast augmentation typically requires 1 – 2 hours to perform as an outpatient surgery. Once you’re under a general anesthesia, the surgical incisions will be made… During the procedure, an incision is created and the implant is slipped into its proper position. There are multiple methods that may be chosen for implant placement: submuscular placement (under the pec muscles) and submammary/subglandular placement (over the pec muscles).

The exact placement of the implant is based on the overall type and size of the implant, in addition to the expert opinion of Dr. Vinyard. The implant will be moved in through the incision and surgically deposited into the pocket which was created, fitting it into its final position. Afterwards, the incision is closed with either sutures or surgical adhesives.
