If you’re one of countless women who’ve been putting off getting a breast augmentation, now may be the time to act.
Modern breast lift procedures are safer, faster, have shorter recoveries, and provide better results than ever before. Here are three compelling reasons why breast augmentations continue to be one of the most common cosmetic procedures on the planet.
1. New Options
Silicone and saline breast implants are still the two main types used in modern procedures, with silicone being the most common. However, even among these two “standard” types of implants are new options to choose from.
So-called “gummy bear” implants, for example, feature a sloped, teardrop shape that mimics the appearance of a naturally contoured, aesthetic breast. Gummy bear implants provide more fullness at the bottom, which gradually tapers towards the top.
Conversely, round implants can create a fuller shape that provides a more “projecting” look.
Next up is HSC (short for high strength cohesive) silicon gel implants, a breakthrough technology that is both the strongest type of silicon implant and the softest.
Bottom line? Women nowadays have tons of options for choosing implants that will offer the best results for YOU.
2. Better Technique
Besides having more options available, there are a number of technological advancements that make modern breast augmentations extremely attractive.
For one, fat transfer breast augmentations have become popular over the past few years as a way to provide a little extra volume without receiving true implants.
During fat transfer, your surgeon will use liposuction to remove unwanted fat from other parts of your body (such as the hips or abdomen), and use that excess fat to carefully inject it into your breasts—meaning zero scar tissue.
Fat transfer is a great option for women who want to see an improvement in their figure but aren’t willing to undergo breast implant surgery.
3. Better Results
These days, the main goal of breast augmentations have shifted away from “dramatic” or over-the-top results to more natural-looking figures. Most women desire to increase volume, correct asymmetry and feel more confident, while retaining a natural balance to their figure.
Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands the real goal of breast augmentation—to look and feel great, not get the biggest implants possible—is vital to see the results you desire.
