Breast Augmentations Still Big, Just Not in Size

While many people are having these new procedures, women still continue to have breast augmentations at a high rate—279,143 procedures in 2015 alone to be exact—a 31 percent increase from the year 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. But while breast augmentations are still big, it’s their size that is shrinking.

Because of new technologies and techniques, and a desire for a more natural look, women are turning to smaller breast sizes for their augmentations. Prominent plastic surgeons in L.A. are reporting a trend in choosing size C cups over Ds and above, and in the middle of the country, medium to full-size B cups are the most sought after size.

Whatever your augmentation aspiration may be, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Chiaramonte has the experience and knowledge to help you achieve your goals. At Bella Cosmetic Surgery in Maryland, the breast implant options we offer include:

  • Saline: A saltwater solution which is similar to our natural body fluids
  • Silicone: A cohesive gel which resembles the look and feel of natural breast tissue
  • Gummy Bear implants: A highly cohesive gel in a teardrop shape that mimics natural breast contours

During your initial consultation, Dr. Chiaramonte discusses these options with you to determine the best implant to fit the size and shape you want in your augmentation. At Bella Cosmetic Surgery, we aim to take an honest, personal approach to your procedure.
