Many times, someone may feel unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts and want to change them. Breast implants are a type of medical prosthesis inserted into the breast to enlarge it, reshape, or create a breast, such as after a mastectomy. At Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center, board-certified surgeons work collaboratively with patients, guiding them in their aesthetic journey and ensuring that the results meet their personal goals. We take this same approach in helping women explore their options with breast implants.
The team at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center offers a full range of sizes, shapes, and types of breast implants for your augmentation surgery. Note that most implants last at least 10 years before you need to replace them, and might be covered by a warranty. Your options for implant types include the following:
By far and large, silicone implants are the most popular types. More than 90% of our Temecula patients — and patients nationally — choose silicone breast implants. Because they are silicone-filled with soft silicone gel, this style looks, feels, and moves more naturally than saline breast implants, which means that patients enjoy a better final result.
This particular implant is highly customizable. It is deflated when first inserted and positioned on your chest. Once in place, it is inflated, or filled with saltwater to the desired size.
This type of implant is a combination of the above two. It comes with an inner silicone form that is then surrounded by saline.
This is also a silicone implant, but it is filled with a harder variety of silicone which resists leaks and is meant to last longer than the other kinds of implants.
Breast implants offer a wide array of possibilities for patients. It might be that you are simply unhappy with the size of your breast and want a bigger size. Some women have asymmetrical breasts and want an implant to make them the same size. Others are unhappy with their shape and want new contours.
And some women have had to undergo a mastectomy due to breast cancer and want to rebuild their breasts. The choice of whether to have breast surgery is yours and yours alone. Renuance surgeons spend extensive time with patients discussing what they want to accomplish with the procedure and the reasons for their decision. Our approach helps women have positive experiences and excellent outcomes. You can also see what you will look like with the VECTRA system, which creates a 3D digital image of your body to see how different sizes and shapes of breast implants look on you. If you are interested in breast implants, the surgeons at Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center can help you make the best choice for your cosmetic goals.
Our Temecula breast implant patients find they are extremely happy after treatment with our practice. Breast implants finally let them look the way that they desired.
Some women were fine with their appearance before surgery, but choosing to have an augmentation has allowed them to have the body they really want. The physical change makes them feel more confident and attractive. Across the spectrum of ages that we see, women reported a better sex life, being more self-assured at work or at school, and overall higher quality of life. They are highly satisfied with their results. This is in part due to the collaborative and supportive care our doctors provide.
Your Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center surgeon will not just help you decide on the best size for you based on your unique figure, but also the type of shape that you’re looking for. There are two main shapes of breast implants available.
These kinds of implants are tapered on top and fuller at the bottom, which mimics the shape of a natural breast. To reduce the risk of sliding out of place and creating a lopsided look, the teardrop implants feature a textured underside that helps them adhere to the underlying tissue. However, textured implants slightly raise your risk for anaplastic large-cell lymphoma, a rare form of cancer.
As the name implies, these implants are shaped to be perfectly symmetrical in a spherical shape.

Below, we share some of the most common questions Temecula patients ask about breast implants. Reviewing this information can make it easier for you to decide about surgery, choose the breast implants that are right for your needs, and maintain an attractive and natural-looking appearance.
Breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime, however, there is no automatic requirement for replacement. Many women have the notion that they need to replace their implants a decade after surgery, however, that is not true. After 10 years, one in five women will choose to have a revision but this is often due to a desire to change the size, lift the breast, or other personal reasons. It is important to follow up with your surgeon as often as recommended and sooner if you have any concerns about your implants. Today most patients with implants that are intact and in a good position are choosing to keep them longer than ever before.
If you would like to know more about getting breast implants, you will need to book a consultation with the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center to establish your eligibility and give the doctors the opportunity to create a customized look just for you. Ideal candidates are not nursing, not experiencing breast growth, and in generally good health.

Because implants are placed after an incision is made, there will be a resulting scar. However, your Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center plastic surgeon works to hide any scars by placing the incision in locations that minimize their visibility, including the breast crease, the underarm, or around the areola. Scars also fade over time.
Gravity is at work all of the time, and it can have an outsized effect on women who have large breasts or breast implants. The tissue of the breasts can age over the years, diminishing the results that you’ve achieved through surgery.
We recommend that our Temecula patients use support garments to reduce the effects of gravity and time on their bodies. Many women wear a bra during the day, but they may also want to explore options like the Breast Whisperer, a support garment developed by Renuance’s Dr. Brian Eichenberg. He designed this specialty bra to be comfortable enough for both daytime and nighttime wear, helping women maintain the aesthetic improvement that they have achieved with our practice.
Renuance has invested in the VECTRA® 3D imaging system, an advanced tool that we can use to create a digital model of your body. During your consultation, your surgeon can tailor the model using different sizes and shapes of breast implants, allowing you to get an idea of how you’ll look after surgery.
Once you decide on the breast implants you think you want, you will be able to try out different sizer implants beneath your clothes. This is a great way to see how your figure will change and how you’ll look when you have larger breasts.
Costs will vary depending on the type, size, and shape of the implant you decide to get. If breast implants are needed for medical reasons, they may be covered by your insurance. However, if the breast implants are elective, insurance providers will not usually cover the costs. There are payment and financing options available through the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center.
When you wake up from sedation, you will immediately notice the increased weight on your chest. This is usually accompanied by soreness, aching, and/or tightness in your breasts. It may seem as if you’ve pulled a muscle. This is also a normal reaction to adding the implant and stretching your skin to accommodate it.
You will feel some discomfort for a few days after your surgery as your body adjusts to the implants. Most patients can manage this with over-the-counter pain relievers, but if you need something stronger, your doctor can prescribe stronger pain medication for you.
