Choosing a breast implant is less like shopping for a car and more like shopping for the perfect pair of shoes.Breast Aug

Those pointy-toe stiletto heels that look great on your best friend might give you blisters the size of Massachusetts and the knee-high boots you adore might come up to your mother-in-law’s thighs.

The point is, whether you know people who have had breast augmentation or not, you are NOT shopping for your friend’s breasts, your sister’s breasts, or your neighbor’s breasts.

The implants you are choosing have to be the best option for YOU.

A leading name in Phoenix breast augmentation, Dr. Rochlin, knows how personal this decision is. She wants to provide you with the best options for you and your breasts, so she uses the best products available.

Dr. Rochlin uses Mentor implants, which are made in America.

Apart from being patriotic, this is important because of the rigorous testing and safety regulations that medical devices, like implants, are subject to in the United States. Mentor implants are FDA approved, which means they have been deemed as safe to use as any other surgical device in any other discipline.

Beyond that, Mentor offers more than one kind of implant. Many surgeons offer either silicone or saline implants, depending on their preference. Dr. Rochlin offers both, so she can accommodate YOUR preference. Again, this decision is all about you.

If you’re looking to shop around for breast implants in Phoenix, she can tell you all about your options and what each material means for you. She knows that you are not shopping for your mother, or your cousin, or your surgeon’s choice of implants. You are shopping for the results that fit your desires and lifestyle.

Breast Implant Shapes and Sizes

Mentor also offers two different shapes for their implants. Round implants tend to have a more dramatic appearance, but they run the risk of really looking “fake” on the wrong person. If you’re looking for a more natural contour, Mentor makes teardrop shaped implants that mimic the shape of a breast. These two different profiles come in smooth or textured surfaces, which help reduce the risk of complications from the surgery itself.

If you feel like you stumbled into the Emporium of Breasts, Phoenix cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Semone Rochlin can help you sift through the information and figure out how to get what you want from your breast augmentation.

Size, shape and texture are important decisions you have to make together with your doctor. There are so many different components to consider and terms like “250cc” and “Ultra-High Profile” might be confusing if you are trying to do all the research on your own.

For example, the size of an implant doesn’t necessarily correspond with a standard cup size. There are many different ways to get a “DD” cup out of a breast augmentation, and you may or may not have a frame that will support that kind of a change. Only your surgeon can tell you what your options are, and a surgeon with multiple options gives you more choices.

Are you Ready?

Would you rather shop for the perfect pair of shoes at a garage sale or a shoe store? A store, of course. So don’t limit yourself to a small sampling of implant options when you can have the wide selection of shapes, sizes, and materials that we offer.
