Natural Breast Implants
Will my implants look natural?
For many women, it’s important that their breast implants feel natural and are tailored to their exact requirements. There are a wide range of shapes, sizes and projections and, with such scope for so many variations, there is something that is right for everyone.
Which breast implants feel the most natural?
If you’re looking for natural breast enhancement, there are several ways this can be achieved from fat transfer surgery to anatomical implants. The next generation of smooth, soft, safer natural looking breast implants do not leak and they create shape, softness and cleavage, making the choice altogether easier.
- Teardrop or anatomical breast implants
Breast enhancement using silicone implants tends to produce the most natural-looking and natural-feeling breasts. The Anatomical True Fixation implant is ideal if a natural teardrop shape is what you’re looking for. They feel incredibly natural and are available in a wide range of shapes, sizes and projections meaning you really can tailor your breasts to your exact requirements. So, if the look you’re aiming for is one that more closely resembles the look and feel of the natural breast, then the anatomical breast implant could be for you.
- Fat transfer
Fat transfer may be a good solution for natural breast augmentation rather than breast implant. However, breast enlargement with fat transfer is not suitable for patients with a low BMI as the fat needs to be taken by liposuction from other parts of the body with excess fat, such as thighs or stomach.
Fat transfer option can be great for restoring shape and volume, particularly if you have lost some of that due to pregnancy or breastfeeding. It can also be repeated once should you wish to increase the size or volume at a later date.
- Hybrid breast augmentation
A hybrid breast augmentation is a breast enlargement procedure combining both implants and your own fat. If you’re looking to immediately and dramatically increase the size of your breasts in one procedure, then this may not be for you.
Hybrid breast augmentation is popular with women who want to make smaller changes made over time. The surgeon sculpts the breast shape into a natural form because of the layer of malleable fat around the implant. This procedure is also popular with breast replacement procedures and women who wish to reduce the size of their already augmented breasts.
What will my breasts look like after augmentation?
You can expect for your breasts to be very swollen for about four weeks after surgery. Usually, most of the swelling is at the upper part of the breasts. It can take weeks, or sometimes even months, for the implants to settle and drop into the desired position.
Choose a the best surgeon for the job
When choosing the best implants for a natural look, it’s important to think extremely carefully and consider the options. Some surgeons have the facility to show you with state of the art, 3D consultations the results of your surgery before you even start. It will be like ‘trying on’ different sizes and profiles before making a final decision.
As with anything worthwhile, make sure you do your homework and you’ll reap the rewards.
