Augmented Look Vs. Natural Look in Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation in Glastonbury, CTWe all know there are two different types of looks that come with a breast augmentation. While some patients wish to enhance their natural features and keep their augmentation subtle, others still wish to achieve the popular augmented look from the 1990s and early 2000s. Today, we wanted to share with you how to achieve your desired look, whether it’s more a subtle change or a more vintage look.

The Natural Look

Natural-looking breast augmentations have flooded the market in recent years. This type of breast augmentation aims to maintain as much of the natural look and feel of the breast as possible while adding enough volume to enhance the patient’s natural features. The biggest appeal to a natural-looking breast augmentation is that no one will know you have implants unless you want them to know.

How to Get the Natural Look

When considering a natural-looking breast augmentation, we encourage you to consider the following:

  • Sub-muscular placement of the breast implants
  • Choosing a moderate-sized breast implant for a subtle, yet noticeable enhancement
  • Limiting the width of the breast implant to heighten a natural appearance
  • Choosing a silicone implant versus a saline implant
  • Nipples sitting on the point on the breast with the most projection

The Augmented Look

When we talk about the augmented look, what we refer to is the type of breast augmentation that was most popular in the days of Baywatch and Showgirls. This type of breast augmentation is often characterized by proportionately large breasts with prominent cleavage and a dramatic contoured effect. People we most often think of when we think of the augmented look include Pamela Anderson and Anna Nicole Smith.

How to Get the Augmented Look

To get a more traditional augmented look form your breast augmentation, we encourage you to consider the following:

  • Sub-glandular placement of the breast implants
  • Choosing large implants that are slightly disproportionate to your body
  • Creating prominent cleavage without the use of a bra
  • Choosing high-profile implants for a more lifted position on the chest
