3 Steps On How To Choose The Best Breast Implant For You

Posted June 10, 2019 in Breast Implants

Grotting Cohn Patient Breast AugmentationWe often hear that women want to consider breast implants, but their biggest fear is that they will end up looking fake. Can your breasts even look natural using synthetic products? The answer is: yes! If you’re going to a board-certified plastic surgeon for your procedure, you should receive a breast augmentation that has been tailored to your body type and aesthetic desires. These three factors will impact how natural your breasts look with implants.

1. Choose Your Breast Implant Type

You can choose between saline and silicone breast implants for your surgery. The material you pick can play a significant role in the look and feel of your breasts. Most surgeons will recommend silicone implants for women whose biggest concern is a natural aesthetic, as silicone better simulates natural tissue. In addition to looking more realistic, silicone implants are also less likely to develop surface irregularities, like rippling or wrinkles, which can happen with saline implants.

2. Decide On The Placement Of Your Breast Implants

You can place implants above or below the pectoral muscle. The location of your implants will change how they are positioned on your chest and their overall shape. While ideal placement varies between women, in many cases we recommend placing implants below the muscle. This creates a more natural breast slope, as well as hides the visible edges of implants. It is a commonly used technique for women who have thinner breast tissue.

3. Determine The Best Breast Implant Size For Your Body Frame

Implants that are too large and aren’t in proportion to your body frame can contribute to a noticeably “fake” breast appearance. Proper implant size is determined based on the width of your chest, tissue thickness, and your frame. The goal is to create larger breasts that still look natural with the rest of your features.
