What Are Breast Implants And How Do They Work?

The Basics

Breast implants consist of a silicone shell filled with a silicone or saline material. We typically place them behind the pectoral muscles at our Tampa plastic surgery office, but if there is a contraindication, we can place them in front of the muscles. 

The Purpose

Nursing, genetics, and weight loss can all affect how a patient's breasts may look. Whether you're dealing with changes in your body or you simply want to address an insecurity you've always had, breast augmentation can refine your breast size and create a fuller shape.

The Techniques

Choosing a surgeon who can customize treatment methods makes all the difference. For example, Dr. Brown offers cosmetic techniques to create lifelike roundness at the top of the breasts, as well as multiple types of incision patterns.

Consider Silicone Materials For Safer, More Lifelike Breast Implant Results

While we do offer both saline implants and silicone implants at our Tampa, FL, practice, Dr. Brown prefers to place breast implants made from silicone gel, like gummy bear implants.

That's because, unlike saline implants, silicone implants look and feel more like natural breast tissue. Silicone gel is also safer because in the event of a rupture, it will stay in place instead of leaking.

Beyond Breast Implants: We Offer a Wide Array of Breast Augmentation Surgeries

Breast Asymmetry Correction

In some cases, such as due to genetics or after breastfeeding, patients may have a breast that is obviously larger than the other. This custom surgery can create a more even bustline, so you can comfortably wear all types of clothes and feel confident in your appearance.

​Nipple Surgery

Like our breasts, the size and shape of a person's nipples can vary greatly. With nipple surgery, Dr. Brown can add the finishing touch to your final results or simply just address an imperfection on its own.

​Breast Implant Revision

Are you unhappy with past plastic surgery results? Or do you need to replace an old set of silicone or saline breast implants? It's common for patients to need to switch out older implants each decade. No matter your goal, our Tampa team can assist.

Hear From  A Real Breast Augmentation Patient

"After a lot of research, I went to see Dr. Brown for my first breast augmentation surgery. After I met him I knew right away I wanted to have my surgery done by him. He is attentive, compassionate, beyond nice and caring, and above all, great at what he does. The consultation lasted about 1h30, he took the time to answer all my questions and to really understand the results I wanted. I’m a little over 6 weeks out of surgery and I’m very happy with my results! I will definitely be a patient again in the future. Ana Sofia Garcia

Our Techniques Set Us Apart

When you visit our board-certified surgeon, you'll benefit from his rigorous techniques.


Dr. Brown uses auto-augmentation during procedures like breast lifts. It allows him to keep the nipple in place as he raises the breast tissue. As a result, patients can achieve fuller-looking breasts — no implant required.

Incision Types

He can make three kinds of incisions: transaxillary incisions, which will be concealed in your underarm, keeping your breasts scar-free; periareolar incisions, which curve around the nipple for discreet scarring; and inframammary incisions, which are easily hidden on your breast's underside.

Keller Funnel

Dr. Brown prefers the Keller Funnel no-touch method for breast augmentation. He uses a special tool to insert the implant, decreasing the possibility of contamination. Lastly, the surgical process is easier on your body, which allows for improved healing and reduced scarring.

What Makes a Patient A Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Brown won't go forward with breast augmentation surgery unless it is safe for you. As he screens his Tampa, FL, patients, he will ensure that they:

Are in Good Health

Our board-certified plastic surgeon carefully reviews medications and health histories to ensure that his patients are healthy enough for surgery. That can include physicals and examinations. He'll also check that you do not smoke or are willing to quit for a period before and after the procedure.

​Understand the Risks and Process

Breast augmentation is a surgery, and Dr. Brown takes the weight of that very seriously. He will work to educate you, so you understand what to expect, how to take care of yourself before and after, and what kinds of results will be possible.

Are Committed to the Results

Typically, you will need to replace older breast implants every decade or so, though durable modern implants may be able to last longer. Dr. Brown will explain the depth of commitment necessary, so that you are well-informed before making any decision.

Curious About  Our Breast Augmentation Results?

One of the most important questions patients have is: what will I look like after surgery? While we don't use preview software, as it can be misleading, we do have a gallery with real past results. Take a look at procedures like breast lifts and breast implants to see what you may be able to expect.

I am so happy I went with Dr. Brown for my breast lift with reduction. From the first consultation he was attentive and all about hearing what you want and finding the best way to achieve it. He was more excited about the results before the surgery even happened which made me feel more comfortable with the procedure from start to finish. I absolutely love my results. I probably won't have more procedures but if I did I would travel to ensure that Dr. Brown is my doctor!!!

Can Breast Implants Address Sagging?

Though breast implants can make your breasts look fuller, the surgery will not address concerns like drooping. If you want perkier, higher breasts, then you may want to consider combining your implants with a breast lift.
