Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular plastic surgeries, which millions of women undergoing the procedure each year. Whether you simply want a more balanced figure or are looking to recover your appearance after pregnancy, breast augmentation can give your breasts the rounded, full look you desire. Over the last few decades, breast augmentation has come a long way, giving you more options than ever for beautiful, natural-looking breasts.
When it comes to the breast implant itself, you can choose from different implant shapes, sizes, and materials to find the fit and feel that’s right for you.
Most implants are made from either silicone or saline. Because silicone is stronger, it is the more popular choice. Though it is a strong material, it is soft and supple like a natural breast. This stronger material also helps prevent leaks, which used to be common in the past. This means your implants last longer, so you are less likely to need a revision surgery.
You can also now choose teardrop shaped implants, which offer a more natural shape. If you prefer a perkier look, round implants provide the shape you desire.
While in the past, large breast implants were more popular, smaller implants, such as B and C cups are becoming more and more common. This growing trend for a more natural appearance may be related to the growing popularity of “mommy makeovers” which help when recover their body’s appearance after pregnancy.
New Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Techniques
If you don’t want to add much volume, you can even choose to skip implants altogether and use fat from other areas of your body. During fat transfer breast augmentation, your plastic surgeon uses liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as your abdomen or thighs. The fat is then injected into your breasts for natural looking and feeling volume.
New surgical techniques allow for breast augmentation scars to be hidden in the fold beneath the breast, in the armpit, or even in the belly button. The procedure is now virtually scarless, allowing for even better results.
