Many women who want larger breasts decide not to get breast implants because they don’t want everyone to know they’ve had work done or simply because they don’t like how implants can make breasts look fake and unnatural. However, there are natural looking breast implants available, that are designed to discreetly improve the size and shape of your breasts.
Natural Looking Breast Implants: Factors that Matter
Ideally, when you get breast implants, there should be no giveaway that will tip people off to the fact that you have had your breasts done. There are several factors that can affect the outcome of your surgery and how natural your breasts will look.
Placement of the implants will play a major role when it comes to natural looking breast implants. Typically, if a woman wants their breasts to look natural, the implant will be placed underneath the breast tissue. Fake looking breast implants are pretty popular, and most women aren’t aware that some women will intentionally choose this look. To get the fake Hollywood style breast implants a surgeon will place the breast implant over the breast tissue.
Another important factor to consider before you get implants is the size. This is something you need to take time to consider. Nothing would be worse than getting your implants, going through surgery and the healing process only to discover that your breasts are too small or way too big. Not surprisingly, this is a common mistake many women make. So speak with your surgeon during your consultation and get their advice on what size would be right for your frame. This is especially important if you want your breasts to appear natural. Most women will only go up one to two cup sizes. The smaller the size of implants you choose, the easier they’ll be to conceal. If you have very small breasts, this means that you have a limited amount of breast tissue available to cover the implant. Smaller breast implants are also associated with the lower risk for complications after surgery. Complications can include severe swelling, bruising and deformity. Uneven looking areolas or changes in how the nipples are placed can occur with larger implants, especially if you have breasts that are asymmetrical. So it’s important that you decide on a moderately sized implant in order to ensure that your breasts end up looking natural and normal.
The width of the breast implants can also be critical when it comes to achieving the natural look. This doesn’t just involve choosing implants that mesh well with the width of your chest. You also need to have enough breast tissue to cover the breast implant all the way across. If you don’t have enough breast tissue then there may be a noticeable ridge along the side of the breast. Or the implant can be visible when you move certain ways.
Breast Augmentation Consultation
A consultation for breast augmentation is usually free of charge. Before you make an appointment it cannot be stressed enough how important it is to learn as much about a surgeon as possible.
During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will go over what you can expect before, during and after the procedure. They will assess your breasts and make recommendations on how you can achieve the natural look. They may also recommend a breast lift, breast reduction or areola reduction, in order to ensure that they implants look great after the healing process.
