Achieving a Natural Look With Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in America. Due to common misconceptions about breast implants, though, some women worry that getting implants will make them look “worked on” or “unnatural.” 

Luckily, there’s good news for women who want more subtle results: The “natural look” is currently in. As trends have shifted and changed, there are more subtle breast augmentation options available for Staten Island and Brooklyn women. Read on to learn about getting a natural look with breast augmentation!

How Have Trends in Breast Augmentation Changed Over Time?

Breast augmentation has been a go-to procedure for many decades. In years past, many women preferred fuller, more dramatic results, requesting implants that create a rounder, high-profile shape. Unfortunately, patients who choose breast implants that are too large for their body types often experience complications down the road. Some women who went up 3 sizes in the ’80s or ’90s now struggle with rippling, implant movement, or sensation issues. 

Consequently, most surgeons suggest implants that are better suited to a patient’s natural shape. Going up only 1 or 2 sizes—often to a B cup or a C cup—adds a subtle boost with far fewer potential medical issues. Recent trends in plastic surgery also show that patients are favoring a more understated, natural approach.

How Do I Choose the Most Natural-Looking Breast Implants?

Choosing the right type of implant for your shape creates more subtle, natural-looking results. If you’re trying to achieve this understated look, here are a few factors to keep in mind:

  • Implant material: While saline-filled implants were popular in the past, cohesive silicone gel delivers a more natural look and feel.
  • Implant profile: Profile describes how far the breast projects from the chest. A moderate or low profile implant blends better with your existing silhouette.
  • Implant shape: An implant in an anatomical or teardrop shape will follow the breasts’ existing slope. While it may not enhance your cleavage the way that a round implant will, it will deliver a natural enhancement.
  • Implant placement: Implants can be placed either above or below the chest muscle. Submuscular implants are more easily disguised as there’s more tissue to cover the outer edges of the implant. 

Why Should You Choose a Natural-Looking Breast Augmentation?

Plastic surgery should make you feel more confident and beautiful, not self-conscious and worried. Choosing natural-looking implants helps many women feel more empowered in their appearance and allows them to enjoy their results. 

In the end, you should work alongside a board-certified plastic surgeon to find the right combination of implants for you. By customizing your procedure, you can create a flattering look that matches your own unique beauty—whether you want a subtle enhancement or something more pronounced. In the end, there is no right or wrong for this highly customized procedure.
