Women choose to get breast implants for a variety of different reasons. Some want to restore volume that was lost to breastfeeding. Some want to create breast volume that was never there. Regardless of the personal reasons for wanting breast augmentation, today’s patients have the most outstanding options to achieve their desired outcomes. The advances that have been achieved in breast augmentation have elevated the safety, comfort, and outcome of this procedure many times over. Here, we’ll discuss why breast augmentation today is better than it’s ever been.
Updated Breast Implant Options
We’ve always had two basic types of breast implants, saline and silicone. That said, improvements have been made to each to achieve the very best results for every patient. Silicone implants remain the most popular choice and, in this area, we have two advancements worth noting:
- Gummy Bear breast implants closely resemble the natural contours of the breasts, enhancing lower pole fullness at the bottom of the breast and tapering toward the upper pole.
- High-strength cohesive silicone implants have also been developed to enhance implant structure without compromising a soft, natural look and feel.
Emphasis on Natural-looking Outcomes
In the early days of breast augmentation, the goal was to achieve a larger cup size. Often, this was achieved at the cost of a fully-natural appearance. At the time, this was the trend. As you know, trends change. This is one of the reasons breast augmentation revision is so common. Today, most patients who seek breast augmentation do so to enhance their natural curves. Patients expressly state that they do not want to look like they’ve had breast augmentation. They simply want to look naturally curvier to feel great in their own skin.
