Breast augmentation is a procedure to improve the size and shape of the breasts. When most patients are pondering breast augmentation, one of their main concerns is whether the results will look natural. Here, the talented Dr. Marco Ellis discusses strategies for achieving natural-looking breast augmentation results.
Choose an Experienced Plastic Surgeon
Choosing an experienced plastic surgeon is one of the best strategies for achieving natural-looking breast augmentation results. You want a plastic surgeon who can demonstrate that they have achieved the type of results that you desire. One way to check a surgeon’s results is to ask for before-and-after photos from previous patients. You can also ask for recommendations from friends who have achieved the results that you desire.
Dr. Ellis is an experienced plastic surgeon who knows how to give patients the beautiful and natural-looking breasts they desire. He works with each patient to create a surgical plan that takes into account her unique needs.
Understand That Size Matters
When it comes to achieving natural-looking breast augmentation results, size matters. Breast implants can provide a small boost or a dramatic increase in volume. While it can be tempting to think “bigger is better,” that is not always the case with breast implants. For many patients, a subtle increase in breast size with a modest implant can achieve their desired aesthetic.
Implant Material Also Matters
Implant material can impact how the breasts look and feel. Dr. Ellis offers both silicone implants and saline implants. Silicone implants tend to move and feel more like natural breasts.
Select Your Desired Shape
Breast implants, like natural breasts, come in different shapes and sizes. They are available in round and teardrop shapes. Teardrop implants tend to look more natural because they have a gently sloping curve similar to natural breasts. However, what you think looks natural is entirely up to you.
Understand Your Implant Placement Options
Breast implants can be placed either on top of or underneath the chest muscle. Your doctor will discuss which option is best for you. However, when the breast implants are placed underneath the chest muscle, they tend to appear more natural.
Evaluate Your Body
Bodies are unique. What looks natural on you will be different from what looks natural on somebody else. The best way to achieve natural-looking breast augmentation results is to evaluate your body and what will look best on your frame. Your doctor will take into consideration your body measurements when discussing your breast augmentation options.
