Many women want the perfect breasts and seek plastic surgery to help them get the silhouette of their dreams. The pair of “perfect” breasts, however, is an entirely subjective standard because everyone has varying aesthetic tastes. Generally, though, the breasts most women prefer are proportionate to the rest of the body and have a nearly even distribution of tissue above and below the nipples. Women with a small bust or who have experienced breast volume loss can achieve a more beautiful and voluptuous figure with breast augmentation. Breast augmentation is a procedure that involves placing implants to produce a fuller and rounder breast appearance.
What implant shape should I get?
Breast implants can be either round or teardrop-shaped. Because most patients seeking breast augmentation lack upper pole fullness, round implants are preferred over anatomically shaped implants. Anatomical implants are teardrop-shaped, making them carry more volume at the bottom and flatten at the top. With round implants, you can choose from high, moderate, or low profile variations to obtain the projection and the overall fullness you desire.
Do I need a breast lift with my augmentation?
There are several factors that determine whether a breast lift is necessary. For example, whether the nipples are positioned above or below the bra line plays a role in deciding which procedure or combination of techniques is right for you. Something else to consider is whether you plan on losing a significant amount of weight in the near future. Weight fluctuations can change breast volume and elasticity, which affects how they will look after any breast procedure.
What cup size is right for me?
What makes women happier with their breast augmentation results is the proportion of their bust with the rest of their body. Many plastic surgeons would agree that basing the desired size of your implants on cup size is problematic. Not all bras are created using the same dimensions, so this is a type of measurement that varies between manufacturers. Breast implants are measured in cubic centimeters, which is a universal measurement across the board.
During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to see what the different implants look like. When deciding which implant size that will help you reach your objectives, your surgeon will take into consideration your chest width and height, shoulder width, and personal preferences based on reference photos.
