Breast Implants

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

Enhance Volume and Shape With Implants

A breast augmentation 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, saline, rounded, or gummy-bear 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

Yes. Both saline and silicone implants are FDA-approved. All our implants are manufactured in the United States. To learn more about our implants, visit our supplier websites for Mentor and Sientra.

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. To learn more about the differences, read Breast Implants: Saline or Silicone?

Gummy bear implants, also called highly-cohesive implants, are a newer type of silicone implant that has a denser texture that allows the implant to retain its shape over much longer time periods. Gummy bear implants are a great option if you want a more natural look that focuses more on the shape of your breast and not simply size.

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.
