When it comes to breast augmentation, our patients are always concerned about how their chest is going to look post-op. In an age where natural looks best, we want to ensure our patients that their breasts will look exactly how they desire when they take the right precautions. Today, we wanted to share with you our tips to getting the most natural-looking results from your breast augmentation, so you can live your best life with breasts you love.
Bigger Isn’t Always Better
When we think of most things, we typically think “bigger is always better.” This phrase does not necessarily work with breast implants. Choosing the right breast implants for you involves choosing the right breast implants for your natural frame and lifestyle. This means that a more active and petite woman who wishes to have natural-looking augmented breasts should gravitate towards smaller, more modest breast implants that will enhance her natural features rather than bombard them.
Consider Where Your Implant is Placed
Believe it or not, the area in which your breast implant is placed in your body can make all the difference in their appearance. While an over-the-muscle approach was most common back in the ‘90s and early 2000s, modern techniques allow doctors to place the breast implant under-the-muscle for a more natural-looking appearance. Not only does this enhance the natural look and feel of the breast, but it also prevents visible scarring, drooping and stretching from occurring following surgery.
The Type of Implant Makes a Difference
Unfortunately, not all breast implants are created equal. While saline breast implants are more budget friendly and can be used for younger patients, we always recommend those who seek a more natural look to consider silicone breast implants. These implants have a more natural-feeling texture to them and don’t ripple under the skin the way saline implants tend to.
Choose Your Surgeon Wisely
The most important piece of advice we can give you to get a more natural-looking breast augmentation is to do your research when choosing your plastic surgeon. We highly recommend choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic breast augmentation and breast enhancement, like Dr. Harold Beam. With more than 20 years of extensive training and experience, Dr. Beam can guarantee natural-looking results that enhance your body’s natural features.
