Which Breast Implant Is Best for You?


Year after year, breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Women of all ages choose to enhance their breasts with the addition of an implant. Having performed countless breast augmentations at our Chapel Hill practice, UNC Aesthetic & Laser Center’s team of skilled plastic surgeons can tell you that each breast augmentation we perform is as unique as the patient herself.

UNC Aesthetic & Laser Center is proud to feature an extensive array of breast implants manufactured by Natrelle® at our Chapel Hill center. Understanding that each woman has distinct goals that she hopes to achieve through her breast augmentation, Mentor offers a variety of shapes, projections, and sizes. With Natrelle, we are able to offer our patients a wide spectrum of breast implants for women to choose from—ultimately helping each of our patients to achieve their desired look. 

What Implant Is Right for You?

Every woman wants to achieve a specific look when it comes to her breast augmentation. While some hope to achieve larger and more-pronounced breasts, others hope to achieve a more natural and balanced bust line. Natrelle has three types of implants to choose from depending on what look a woman is going for:

  • Natrelle Classic Round Gel Breast Implant provides a classic fullness to a woman’s chest
  • Natrelle Inspira® Round Gel Breast Implant allows women to achieve a fuller, rounder, and more dramatic shape
  • Shaped Fullness: Natrelle 410 Highly Cohesive Anatomical Shaped Silicone-Filled Breast Implants features a teardrop-shape to closely mimic the natural tapering of a woman’s breast

What implant you choose depends on what you hope to achieve through your breast augmentation.

No Two Women Are the Same

No two women have the exact same frame, breast shape, or breast size. With the most breast implant options, Natrelle breast implants can produce a look that is as unique as the women herself. For example, Natrelle’s Inspira breast implant offers five different projection styles, the implant can be either smooth or macrotextured, and is available in over 300 volumes. The number of options ensures that each of our patients is able to find the implant that is exactly the right them.

Naturally Soft Implants

While women may have different desires when it comes to the look of their bust line, most women agree that they want their breasts to feel as natural as possible. More than ever before, a natural feeling augmented breast is possible because the gummy-like consistency of gel implants (giving them the nickname gummy bear implants) closely mirrors the feel of natural breast tissue.
