As much as interest in breast augmentation has sustained over the years, there still tends to be a period of hesitation that prevents women from seeing the reflection they’d like when they look in the mirror. Not only has breast augmentation been around for a long time, but this procedure has also been improved significantly in recent years thanks to new surgical techniques and revisions to breast implant models. Considering these points, you may question what’s stopping you from having the body you want. We might have an idea: you may be held back by a slight fear that your breasts will look fake if you enhance them. We want to discuss this.
There is no denying that we’ve seen some pretty horrible boob-jobs over the years. Most people can point out at least one celebrity who could be a poster-child for what not to do. Well, things have changed. We’ve come through that period during which most breast enhancements altered a woman’s organic figure a little too much. Now more than ever, it’s possible to obtain the shape this is perfect for your frame. Here are some suggestions to help you do just that.
- Choose the right implant-size for your body. There are two ways to look at this. One is to observe your overall frame. Taller and wider body-types may be well-complemented by larger implants, or those with a higher profile. This is just one aspect of implant-to-body, though. Another very important aspect is what youwant your shape to be. Many women today are choosing smaller implants, and are very happy with their results.
- Choose your implant type carefully. Implants are either saline or silicone. However, there are other options that your surgeon will help you choose, such as teardrop or round shapes and form-stable implant types, which tend to look and feel more natural than saline.
- Choose implant placement carefully. When possible, it may be preferred to have implants situated within a pocket of tissue beneath the pectoral muscle. In this situation, there may be a lower risk of capsular contracture and rippling.
- Consider a breast lift in addition to breast augmentation. When natural breast tissue has deflated, and extra tissue and skin are covering the breasts as a result, augmentation may not be enough to achieve an optimal result. A lift can ensure proper height and shape for natural-looking results.
