While you recover from breast augmentation, your chest area may feel sore for a few days. As swelling resolves over the following month, you should begin to notice the final look and feel of your breasts.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto approaches each patient's care with personalization and attention to detail while prioritizing natural results. Dr. Kleto can present your breast augmentation options, and pinpoint the options yielding the most natural result. The way your breasts feel will be influenced by:

For the most part, silicone breast implants tend to have the most natural feel. Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel, which has a consistency and texture similar to human fat. For this reason, many women prefer silicone implants for breast augmentation.

Saline breast implants tend to feel less natural. The saline fluid used to fill these implants does not feel like human fat. Saline implants can be placed behind the chest muscles so they are covered with the breast tissue, creating a more natural-looking and natural-feeling breast.
