Breast Implants

Saline or silicone implants for women of all shapes and sizes in Nashville & Memphis

What is Breast Augmentation?

A breast augmentation (mammoplasty) is a cosmetic surgery that involves the placement of implants to improve both volume and shape of your breasts. Breast implants can give you the larger, fuller and perkier breasts you have always wanted. You have a choice of silicone or saline implants. Breast implant removal and breast implant exchange surgeries are specialized versions of a breast augmentation.

Breast augmentations with implants are available at NuBody Concepts in Nashville and Memphis at our fully-equipped plastic surgery centers. Our board-certified plastic surgeons, each with over 20 years of experience, have placed breast implants for women of all sizes, shapes, and forms. Whether you are looking for breast implants or another breast procedure, we encourage you to meet with our plastic surgeon to discuss your options. Simply select a date from our Nashville or Memphis calendar to self-schedule your consultation!

Each patient is unique. What your treatment will look like is determined by you and the plastic surgeon who you will meet with in a personal consultation.

The cost of breast implants varies by plastic surgeon and type of implant. Silicone implants are more expensive than saline implants. It is important to compare total cost, as some surgeons may charge extra fess for facility use and anesthesia in addition to their quoted price. Learn more>>

It is important to consider all factors when deciding on the size of breast implants, such as your lifestyle, the desired shape of the implants, and the plastic surgeon’s experience with many different body types. Learn more>>

At NuBody Concepts we offer both choices. While silicone implants are more common, we do offer saline implants as an alternative. Some of our patients select saline implants because they are a more affordable option and can be inserted through a smaller incision around the areola/nipple. Silicone implants are generally considered to have a nicer shape and feel. Learn more>>

Gummy bear implants, also known as highly-cohesive gel implants, are a newer type of silicone implant that has a denser texture that allows the implant to retain its shape over longer time periods. They are a great option for breast reconstruction where lost tissue must be replaced, but can feel too firm for breast augmentation patients. Learn more>>

Highly-cohesive (aka “gummy bear”) breast implants are often teardrop shaped to better mimic the natural slope of the breast. While this may be a desirable feature, they also need a textured vs smooth surface, which has some advantages but also disadvantages. Learn more>>

No. Breast implants only require IV sedation and local anesthesia. This has the benefit of a faster recovery, lower cost of the procedure, and less of the risks associated with general anesthesia. Visit our Breast Implants page for more information.

Since we don’t use general anesthesia for your breast surgery, your recovery time is reduced from 2 weeks to approximately 3-5 days. However, we advise patients to abstain from strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for a minimum of 2 weeks.
