We have many different methods of breast augmentation that we offer our clients. Each patient receives a customized plan to ensure that you look and feel your best. We want you to be happy and satisfied with your results.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed across the United States. This procedure improves symmetry, gives a balanced figure, and boosts both confidence and self-image. Our doctors and the Modern MedSpa team in South Jordan, Utah understand that each client is different and deserves a custom, personalized experience.


Types of Breast Augmentations

At Modern MedSpa, you have options when it comes to your implant style. Our staff is highly experienced, and will ensure that you receive the ideal implant for both your body and your budget. We offer four different types of breast implants, including: saline, silicone, teardrop, and gummy. Our doctors also offers Natural Breast Augmentation which uses a highly sophisticated fat transfer method to move unwanted fat from one area of the body to provide shapelier or larger appearance to the breasts.

To help you learn about the different types of breast augmentation, we’ve put together a quick guide below that addresses the benefits and risks involved with each augmentation surgery. Read on to learn more about the types of breast augmentation surgery you can consider through Modern MedSpa:

Natural Breast Augmentation

Natural breast augmentation, also known as fat transfer breast augmentation, is an innovative approach to enlarging your breasts using your body’s own fat stores. This is part of a larger trend that focuses on helping women augment their bodies while also maintaining a natural-looking silhouette. This means that no one will know you’re augmented — unless you want to tell them!

A natural look is achieved by combining art and science. The experienced team at Modern MedSpa will assess your body’s frame and work with you to envision how you want your augmentation to look. Then, we’ll create a plan for how to get you there.

Most breast enlargement procedures that take the natural approach rely on liposuction to remove fat from other areas on your body. Your fat is then put into place using a sub-muscular implant that creates a moderate, form-fitting lift for your breasts. This helps you keep your body in the proper proportion, and allows you to achieve a beautifully holistic end result.

While this is a more in-depth and sophisticated surgery, most women who opt for natural breast implants see long-lasting results like:

  • Natural feeling and moving breasts
  • Mid-level breasts that aren’t too high or low
  • Higher volume on the bottom part of the breast
  • A mild sloping breast that helps the nipples project

If you’ve been searching for a highly-qualified team to complete a natural breast augmentation in Utah, we invite you to get in touch with Our doctors and the team at Modern MedSpa.

Teardrop (Gummy) Breast Augmentation

Teardrop breast augmentations (also called gummy augmentations or anatomic implants) are custom-designed to mirror the natural appearance of a woman’s breast, meaning the volume of the breast will sit lower. This creates an asymmetric look that is thinner at the top of the chest and fuller near the base of the implant.

This type of implant gets the “gummy” name from the semi-solid gel that’s used to make them. Since the feel is similar to the popular gummy bear candy, the name has stuck. Don’t worry though — your implant won’t be made of gummy bears!

Instead, the implant will be made from a material that creates a firm, stable, and natural feeling silicone that provides a natural look that’s still soft to touch. These features make them popular as a reconstructive option following a mastectomy, but that’s not the only reason teardrop implants are preferred. Many women that want implants above their muscles or who have minimal natural breast tissue also favor this style of implant.

For many patients, teardrop implants provide the ideal breast shape and feel. And since this model of implant is incredibly popular, you have a wide variety of brands, shapes, and sizes to choose from. Our doctors and the Modern MedSpa team will work closely with you to ensure that your final breast augmentation results look and feel how you want them to.

Silicone Breast Augmentation

Silicone breast augmentations have been around for decades, and remain a popular choice for patients who want a breast enlargement procedure. This style of implant provides a significant amount of lift without compromising how the final results feel. They also allow a great deal of flexibility in the shape and size of your augmented breasts.

Thanks to the long-lasting and stable formulation of the silicone gel in the implant, this type of augmentation is ideal for anyone who likes to spend much of their time in the outdoors. They’re stable at temperature extremes, and are able to withstand moisture, sunlight, and aging.

The only downside to silicone gel breast implants is the risk of rupture — which can cause pain in the tissue surrounding the implant. You’ll also quickly notice a change in the shape of your breast. Many breast augmentation specialists recommend regular checkups to ensure that the implants haven’t ruptured silently as well. That said, this option is still widely used and completely approved by the FDA.

If you’re considering silicone breast augmentation, Our doctors would be more than happy to discuss all of your options and help you decide if it’s the right option for you.

Saline Breast Augmentation

The final popular breast enlargement option that’s popular in the United States is a saline breast augmentation. This uses a saline (or sterile salt water) solution to fill the implant in order to create a natural-feeling and silhouette-pleasing breast. The only stipulation is that you must be over the age of 18.

Saline implants are also popular because they can be filled to the exact specifications of the patient. If you want a natural teardrop shape or full, round breasts, both can be achieved with the help of the Modern MedSpa team.

There are a few considerations to be aware of with saline implants though. In some instances, saline breast augmentations can create an effect called “rippling” — which is where the folds of the implant can be seen below your skin. This is due to saline’s consistency (similar to water), and typically happens when you’re moving around. A technique called “baffling” is used to prevent this to a small degree.

Another benefit of saline breast implants is that if they rupture, there’s very little risk to your body or health. The saline can be absorbed by your body, unlike silicone options. You’ll likely be able to tell the implant has ruptured within a few hours due to deflation, and you’ll need to have the implant replaced.

What are the risks of breast augmentation?

As with any surgery or cosmetic procedure, breast augmentation does come with certain risks. Implant displacement, deflation (saline), rupture (silicone, gummy, teardrop), and capsular contracture are all a possibility, although they are rare. More serious complications are also infrequent but can include poor reactions to anesthesia or pain medicines, infection, or excessive bleeding. At Modern MedSpa, we take every precaution to ensure that our patients receive the best care available and experience a positive outcome.

How long will my recovery be after my breast augmentation?

Typically, patients are able to return to normal activities within 7-10 days of their breast augmentation, and rarely need more than one week off work. If you have small children or have a job that requires heavy lifting, we recommend that you have extra help on hand for the first week after surgery. After that time, you may slowly introduce more strenuous activities as any soreness or discomfort decreases.

When can I start to exercise again after breast augmentation?

After your initial 7-10 days of recovery, you may start walking briskly and slowly work your way up to more demanding aerobic activity. We recommend waiting at least two weeks before any type of lifting or high impact activities. A good rule of thumb would be: if it is painful or causes discomfort concerning your implants, stop and let yourself recover for a few more days before trying again.

How much pain should I expect after my breast augmentation?

During your breast augmentation you will feel little to no pain. Once you enter the recovery area any pain that you experience can be easily treated with medications. The greatest discomfort will last between 24 and 48 hours after your procedure. Our doctors will prescribe a pain management remedy to ensure maximum comfort during that time. After the first few days of recovery, any pain and discomfort will begin to fade and you will have less need for medications.

How often will I need to replace my implants?

Fortunately, breast implants are not like cars. You do not need to replace them after a certain number of years (miles). As long as you are not experiencing any difficulty with your implants, such as implant rupture or capsular contracture, you should never need to replace them. Be sure to ask Our doctors about any specific warranty that may come with the implants you choose.

How will I know what size of implants I need?

During your free 45-minute consultation with Our doctors, you will “try on” a variety of different implant sizes. At this time he will be able to predict with incredible accuracy how you will look after your breast augmentation. This is often described as the “fun” part of the appointment, as you can see yourself with many different options.

Will I be under anesthesia for my breast augmentation?

When you meet with Our doctors you will discuss your options for anesthesia options based on your specific needs and comfort preferences. You will have several choices and you may rest assured that every method of anesthetic comes with maximum comfort and pain management. We want you to have the best experience possible and be comfortable, confident, and completely at ease during your breast augmentation.

What are the different types of implants?

At Modern MedSpa, we offer four different types of implants: saline, silicone, teardrop, and gummy. Each type of implant comes in a large variety of sizes and profiles to ensure that each client receives a perfectly custom fit. You can discuss the benefits of each variety of implant and which will best suit you with Our doctors in detail.

Will my breast and nipple sensitivity be affected by my implants?

Sensitivity after surgery varies greatly from person to person. It may increase, decrease, or stay the same. Generally, any decreased sensation you experience in your breasts or nipples will return to normal within 6-12 months after surgery. In extremely rare cases, some sensitivity may not completely return. Most patients regain all normal sensation within the 6-12 month time frame.

Am I a candidate for breast augmentation surgery in Utah?

Women with smaller breasts, breasts that are unequal in size or shape, breasts that are sagging due to age, or breasts that are smaller or sagging after pregnancy and breast feeding may all benefit from a breast augmentation. Some patients who have excessive sagging skin due to great weight loss or any of the reasons listed above may be candidates for a breast lift in addition to a breast augmentation. If you are a candidate for a breast lift procedure, Our doctors will discuss that with you during your consultation.
