The prospect of the breasts looking fake or artificial is a common concern that surgeons hear from potential breast augmentation patients.
But patients can be assured that developments in breast augmentation techniques and devices have made it possible to attain natural looking breasts.
Kind board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie MD provides breast implant surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and other cities and neighborhoods in this part of nation.
Following are some suggestions on how to choose natural-looking breast implants:
Tip #1: Assess the Look and Feel of the Breast Implants
Breast implants are available in round and teardrop (anatomical) shapes. Round implants offer the same amount of projection on the top as well as the bottom. Teardrop implants provide more projection on the bottom in comparison to the top.
Teardrop implants are more suitable if the patient seeks natural-looking results as these implants are similar to the natural slope of the breast tissue. The implant filling also affects the appearance of the implants.
In comparison to saline implants, traditional silicone and gummy bear implants (highly cohesive silicone implants) move and feel more like natural breast tissue. The patient will have a chance to feel and hold each implant type during the pre-op consultation.
Tip #2 Selecting the Correct Implant Size
The cosmetic surgeon takes the patient’s measurements either during the consultation or at another appointment for sizing.
These measurements will help the surgeon determine the most suitable implant size for the patient depending on their body mass, frame, and available breast tissue. Furthermore, the patient may also be able to try on different sized implants to understand how the breasts will appear after the enhancement surgery.
The most likely reason for implants appearing unnatural is the patient selecting an implant size beyond the surgeon’s recommended range. The surgeon recommends the implant size range based on the patient’s measurements and choosing implants sized above this range will make the implants appear disproportionate to her body.
The patient may also be able to “try on” implants of various sizes via an implant sizer.
Tip #3: Evaluate the Existing Breast Tissue and Skin Quality
The surgeon will assess the patient’s bust size, availability of breast tissue, and skin elasticity during the pre-operative consultation process. These are significant factors as they affect which implant size will appear most natural. The placement of oversized breast implants with insufficient skin available to cover them can produce artificial outcomes.
Tip #4: Employing Digital Imaging Technology
An exciting development in the field of breast augmentation is the use of digital imaging technology. Several cosmetic surgeons make use of this innovative technology to showcase potential outcomes to patients. The surgeon will take images of the patient’s breasts and upload these photos on a computer to enable her to see how her breasts will look with different sized implants.
Tip #5: Choose an Expert Plastic Surgeon
Choosing a well-qualified, honest, and experienced breast augmentation surgeon is an excellent way to ensure natural-looking outcomes. The surgeon should be very experienced in breast enhancement procedures and possess a proven record creating aesthetically appealing and successful outcomes.
