How to Get Natural Looking Breast Implants

Breast implants have come a long way, and our skill in providing patients with natural-looking breast implants has only increased over time. For those seeking breast augmentation in Florida and beyond, that natural look is a non-negotiable.

If you’re wondering how to get natural-looking breast implants, know that not all breast implants are created equal. There are many types to choose from, including silicone breast implants, saline implants, and many more options.

There’s an artistry to creating natural breasts, and it lies in selecting the ideal implant and placement to harmonize with a patient’s unique anatomy. It takes a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon to provide a natural breast augmentation you can be happy with for years to come.

Implant Types and Their Attributes

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are favored by many women for their realistic feel, which is very close to natural tissue. They are filled with silicone gel, which is malleable and provides a natural appearance.

However, in the rare case of an implant rupture, the silicone gel may remain in the breast tissue, which requires medical intervention to correct. Some women prefer not to get silicone implants for this reason.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saline solution. These breast implants can be filled to the desired implant size during breast augmentation surgery. This ability to adjust the size of the saline implants means they can be tailored to achieve perfect symmetry.

On the downside, saline implants can sometimes exhibit visible rippling in thinner patients or those with minimal natural breast tissue. A board-certified plastic surgeon can help you decide whether these are the right choice for your breast augmentation.

Gummy Bear Implants

Gummy bear implants, also known as shaped implants, are known for their ability to maintain a structured shape. Their consistency, which is much like gummy bear candy (hence the name), gives them resilience against rippling and the potential to provide a very natural-looking result.

They come in teardrop shapes, which can also provide a more natural appearance at the base, with a taper at the top.

Round Implants

The round breast implant is among the most common of implant shapes. They are versatile and can provide fullness both at the top and bottom of the breast.

Depending on implant placement and a patient’s breast tissue, round implants can yield a natural looking enhanced breast for some women.

Choosing the Right Implant for Natural Breasts

The breast implant size, type, and placement are all key factors in achieving a natural-looking breast augmentation. To make the right choice, though, one must also consider breast shape, breast size, and the desired outcome.

Breast Augmentation Procedure and Submuscular Breast Implant Placement:

Implants can be positioned either above the pectoral muscle (subglandular placement) or beneath it (submuscular placement).

Placing the implant under the muscle can often yield more natural looking results, particularly for those with limited natural breast tissue. However, the decision depends on the individual, and other factors like breast base, chest wall, and skin quality, all play an essential role.

Implant Size and Implant Sizes

While many women may desire a dramatic change, opting for an implant size that complements the natural proportions of one’s body can lead to more natural results. The relationship between the implant, natural breast tissue, and pectoral muscle should all be in harmony.

The Importance of Having a Skilled Surgeon

As you can now see, making the right choice for the most natural results isn’t as straightforward as it might seem. While it’s important for you to be informed and make decisions that are right for your body and preferences, you also want the experience and artistry of an expert in natural-looking breast implants and procedures.

The Procedure in More Detail

Breast augmentation typically begins with an incision, the placement of which is determined by the implant type, your anatomy, and your desired outcome as discussed with Dr. Nir. Incision placement could be around the areola, in the breast fold, or even in the armpit.

Once the incision is made, the breast implant is placed either above or below the pectoral muscle. The choice of breast implant placement can dramatically influence the natural look of the augmented breast, so it’s important to trust your cosmetic surgery to a professional with proven experience in providing patients with a natural look.

Addressing Concerns: Capsular Contracture and Visible Rippling

Breast augmentation, like all surgeries, carries potential risks. Two of the more commonly discussed concerns are capsular contracture and visible rippling.

Capsular contracture occurs when the scar tissue that forms around the breast implant becomes unusually hard and constricting. This can lead to breast discomfort and an unnatural appearance. Visible rippling refers to the appearance of wavy lines or wrinkles on the surface of the breast, most commonly associated with saline implants. Having ample natural breast tissue or opting for under the muscle placement can mitigate this concern.

Again, choosing implants, location, and breast size goals in concert with the expertise of a qualified and experienced surgeon is the best way to be sure of a natural result you can love for a lifetime.

Complementary Procedures: Enhancing the Augmented Look

In some cases, a breast augmentation alone may not provide the desired appearance. Complementary procedures, like a breast lift or fat grafting, can be combined with breast augmentation to address issues like sagging or to add subtle volume in areas where implants don’t provide sufficient fullness.

For those with adequate fat deposits, fat grafting involves removing fat from one area of the body and injecting it into the breasts, offering a dual benefit.

Revision: When You Want an Adjustment

There might be instances where the results of a breast augmentation aren’t what was anticipated, or natural changes to your breasts over time lead to dissatisfaction with your look. Revision surgery is an option to adjust or replace implants.

Natural-Looking Results: Patient Expectations and Communication

The best outcomes are achieved when there’s open communication between the patient and the surgeon.
