Breast Implant Options

When it comes to choosing breast implants, our patients from Louisville and Lexington, KY, and Floyds Knobs, IN, have a range of options. Plastic surgeons Dr. M. Bradley Calobrace and Dr. Juan Quintero understand that each patient is a unique individual with her own anatomy, cosmetic goals, and lifestyle. That’s why they don’t limit their patients to a single implant product line but instead offer a variety of the latest FDA-approved breast implants—some only available to select board-certified plastic surgeons—from a range of manufacturers.

If you’re interested in breast augmentation, visit us to learn more about all of your breast implant options and how Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Quintero can improve your look. Request a consultation online or call us at (502) 899-9979.

How Do I Choose My Breast Implants?

Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Quintero offer a variety of breast implant options to give each patient highly personalized, natural-looking results. During your consultation, they will review the following choices with you:

  • Size: Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Quintero will recommend a breast implant size (which may differ for each breast) by accounting for your cosmetic goals, existing breast tissue, body proportions, and lifestyle.
  • Fill MaterialSilicone vs. Saline: Each type offers its own advantages. Saline is natural and affordable, and the volume is adjustable. Silicone looks and feels more like natural breast tissue.
  • Shape—Round vs. Teardrop: Round implants add overall fullness to the breast including the cleavage area. Teardrop implants follow a natural breast shape with more fullness at the bottom and less at the top.
  • SurfaceSmooth vs. Textured: Smooth implants move around easily and naturally within the breast. A textured implant surface helps teardrop implants stay properly oriented inside the breast with the thinner end at the top and fuller end at the bottom.
  • ProfileLow, Moderate, or High: Implant profiles define how far the implant (and therefore the breast) projects from the chest wall. High profile implants project the farthest, have a narrow base, and are well-suited for small-framed patients. Low profile implants project the least and have a wider base that fits patients with broader chests. Moderate profile implants are neither extreme, making them a good fit for the majority of patients.

At CaloAesthetics® Plastic Surgery Center, breast augmentation patients have these options available in several product lines that include implants not readily available elsewhere.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

We provide our breast augmentation patients with post-operative care instructions to ensure they care for their implants to achieve the best results possible. If you have undergone breast augmentation with smooth breast implants, we have provided a timeline of recovery, written post-operative instructions to follow, and a video illustrating how to perform a breast massage after breast augmentation with smooth implants to reduce scar tissue and improve results.

Smooth Breast Implant Post-Operative Care Instructions

Smooth Breast Implant Recovery Timeline


  • FDA–approved for ages 18 and older
  • Outside edges contour toward the chest for a natural look
  • Leaks or ruptures are immediately obvious
  • Does not contain silicone gel
  • Requires a smaller incision than with silicone implants
  • Results look and feel more natural than saline implants

We are one of the few practices in Kentucky to offer this innovative saline implant option.

Sientra® Breast Implants

Choosing Sientra implants means choosing some of the most scientifically advanced products in the world of cosmetic enhancement. Like other 5th generation gel implants, often called “gummy bears,” Sientra implants are filled with a form-stable, high-strength silicone gel. These implants retain their shape even if they are compressed, cut, or torn. Many breast augmentation patients also prefer the material because it feels and looks more like real breast tissue and creates results that seem very natural.

Sientra’s textured round and shaped implants feature True Texture®, a unique texturing method that keeps the implants in place once they are inserted. Additionally, research has shown these implants carry a significantly reduced risk of capsular contracture1, an unusual complication in which an excess of hard scar tissue forms around an implant. These innovative implants even come with a one-of-a-kind guarantee protecting patients against capsular contracture.

Are Breast Implants Safe?

Very rarely, textured implants have been associated with the development of BIA ALCL (Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma). The benefits of texture must be weighed against this very rare development to determine the implant for each patient. Smooth implants have NO association with BIA ALCL.

Often Asked

How do I know what size implants to choose?

You will not be alone when it comes to choosing your breast implants at our Kentucky center. Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Quintero know that size is one of the most important decisions to make. During your consultation, you will be able to try on implant sizers, which are silicone forms of varying sizes that can be placed in a stretchy bra. This will give you and Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Quintero a good idea of the size you’d like to be. He can also use the VECTRA® 3-D imaging system to create a 3-D simulation of possible results using a digital image of your own body.

Are silicone implants safe?

Yes. Actually silicone implants were never proven to be unsafe. In 2006 (and updated again in 2011),2 the FDA re-approved the use of a new generation of silicone implants — which contained a thicker, more cohesive silicone gel — for women age 22 and older after finding no evidence linking these implants to increased health risks. Since then, implant technology has continued to advance with those that have stronger, more elastic outer coverings and a very natural-feeling silicone filling.

I have saline implants right now. Can I have them switched out for silicone implants?

Yes. While there’s no need to replace implants on a particular timeline, many women want the new, more natural feel of today’s silicone implants. Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Quintero often perform elective implant exchange for women who want to upgrade their implants for a different shape, size, or fill material.

Will I need to buy new bras to fit my implants?

Wearing a bra specially designed for breast implants can give your breasts needed support and help your results last for as long as possible.
