The goal of breast augmentation has always been to increase the size of your bust with breast implants, but the desired results have changed. The “supersized” breast implant popular in the 90s and early 2000s is no longer the look of choice. Most women interested in breast augmentation want natural-looking breast implants that complement their body shape, not overpower it. Dr. Chacon can help you determine the ideal breast implant shape, size and material for your breasts and body shape.
A Feminine Boost Over Dramatic Contour
Most women looking for breast augmentation now are hoping for an elegant boost that is one to two cup sizes bigger than their current breasts — a stark contrast to the D-cup size or larger requests from a few decades ago. It’s important to choose a breast implant size that fits your body shape and looks proportionate for several reasons, such as
A Wardrobe That Fits
When your breasts are much larger than your waist, you will likely find it challenging to find tops and dresses that fit correctly. The fabric of a shirt that fits your waist will quickly stretch out and warp the material around the chest, whereas a dress that accommodates your breast size may look baggy everywhere else.
A Large Bust Could Limit Activities
You want to consider your lifestyle when evaluating your breast implant options. If you run regularly or play a sport that requires a lot of cardio, large breasts that don’t match your figure could weigh you down. You may find it painful to continue jogging and participating in other activities.
A Potential Painful Side Effect
You may start to experience symptoms of macromastia (abnormally large breasts) if your breast implants don’t balance your body shape, such as back, neck and shoulder pain and skin indentions from bra straps. These symptoms may increase the likelihood of a breast implant revision procedure to swap large implants for smaller ones.
How to Achieve Natural-Looking Breast Implants
The most common choice for breast augmentation among today’s women is a flattering increase in volume and curves. That natural breast look is going to be different for every woman. Your body is unique, and your breast augmentation is customized to your frame and cosmetic goals.
At Divino Plastic Surgery, Dr. Chacon offers various breast implant types to achieve your desired look, whether you want dramatic or subtle results. In addition to size, you have many implant choices, such as the shape and texture of the implant, implant placement and spacing.
