Spokane is Washington State’s second-largest city, and one of the fastest-growing regions in the state. With more people, there is more demand for quality medical care, including plastic surgery procedures like breast augmentation. With only a handful of area plastic surgeons, many choose to come to Seattle for the best breast augmentation Washington State has to offer with Dr. Javad Sajan. The best breast augmentation Spokane residents have access to is at Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery.
As one of the leading plastic surgeries in the United States, breast augmentation involves the placement of breast implants to increase the size and enhance the shape of the natural breasts. Most commonly this is done through the placement of implants into the breasts or below the chest muscle.
People may choose to get breast implants for a variety of reasons. For example, a woman may have two very asymmetrical breasts; or perhaps, they lost breast volume after having children. Others may seek breast implants as part of a gender transition or for purely personal reasons. No matter the reason, Dr. Sajan works to customize breast augmentation for each patient individually.

Breast augmentation—like any major procedure—comes with risks. For most, the risks are relatively small, and any that do occur are temporary and minor. However, it is important to understand and know the risks, especially any increased risks you may have, before surgery.
The risks of Spokane breast augmentation may include:
- Fluid collection
- Prolonged or severe side effects
- Capsular contracture
- Implant rupture
- Breast implant illness
Major complications are rare. Dr. Sajan will evaluate the patient’s medical history and current health to determine if they have any increased risks. Several risk factors can be lowered with proper management and preparation.
Silicone vs. Saline Breast Implants
The first choice patients have to make when choosing breast implants is the type they want. Breast implants come in two basic types: saline and silicone. Each option comes with benefits and drawbacks based on individual goals and anatomy.
Saline breast implants contain a silicone shell that Dr. Sajan inserts and then fills with sterile saline during surgery. While many believe these implants look and feel less natural than silicone breast implants, they are a great choice in some situations. Patients who may benefit from saline implants include:
- Patients under 22
- Women with a substantial amount of existing breast tissue
- Those who want a specific or overly large implant size
- Patients with major concerns about implant rupture
Saline implants do have a good safety record. However, they are more likely to be visible beneath the skin—known as rippling or wrinkling—and have an increased risk of rupture. Though, in the unlikely event of a rupture and leakage, the saline poses no major health risk. Saline implants are still placed today, but have lost popularity in favor of silicone implants.
Silicone breast implants are the more popular breast implant type because they are generally believed to look and feel more natural. Modern silicone breast implants are safer than past generations and often come with a lifetime warranty (depending on the manufacturer). Nearly anyone can get amazing looking results from silicone breast implants. They are especially recommended for:
- Petite or thin patients with little natural breast tissue
- Patients with breast shape abnormalities
- Breast reconstruction
- Patients who value the most natural look and feel possible
Silicone implants come in two further subtypes: round and gummy bear. Round implants are round in shape and among the softest feeling implants available. They can help provide more fullness to the upper part of the breast and make the breasts rounder overall. Gummy bear implants contain a firmer, more cohesive silicone gel filling. This means that it is less likely to rupture and if it does, the silicone gel is less likely to leak.
All silicone implants now contain cohesive gel. However, gummy bear breast implants contain an extra cohesive type that feels firmer and is shaped more like a natural breast. Anatomically shaped gummy bear breast implants offer high projection while maintaining the natural breast shape with more fullness near the bottom and middle of the breast.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Are The Realest Looking Breast Implants?
The realest looking breast implants tend to vary based on the patient’s existing anatomy. Though, most people believe that silicone breast implants look and feel the most natural. For some, the firmer gummy bear implant may look more natural. For others, the round, soft silicone breast implant may appear the most life-like.
Dr. Sajan will discuss goals with the patient and examine their anatomy to determine the best possible implant type. Additionally, patients get the chance to feel and try on sizers at their consultation.
What Is A Good Size For Breast Implants?
The average size chosen for breast implants tends to range between 350cc and 450cc. This will vary by location and office. Different breast implant sizes will look different from existing breast sizes. For example, a 350cc implant on a woman with A-cup breasts is going to create a different size than those same implants in a woman with C-cup breasts.
Therefore, choosing a size is not as straightforward as having the number size correlate with a cup size. For this reason, patients are encouraged to try on sizers in the office which will help them get a feel for the size of their breasts following breast implant surgery. Also, Dr. Sajan can make a recommendation based on the patient’s body type, frame, and goals.
Do Breast Implants Feel Heavy?
Generally, no, breast implants do not feel heavy. The one exception is if breast implants are too large for a patient’s frame. This can cause problems and make the implant feel heavy. Dr. Sajan takes measurements during a consultation to determine a viable size range for each patient.
