Determining one’s ideal breast augmentation results before undergoing surgery is a personal decision-making process. It requires attention to detail, careful consideration of many factors, and the advice of an experienced plastic surgeon. Various breast augmentation options can make your breasts appear either more natural or more round and shapely with prominent cleavage. Once you have developed a preference for the results you are seeking, carefully selecting the right breast augmentation options will help you achieve your ideal results.

How to Get Natural-Looking Results

A natural look after breast augmentation can be achieved in the following way:Breast Augmentation Before and After Photos by Dr. Bonaldi

  • Submuscular placement: Implants that are placed above the muscle may appear more prominent. Implants that are placed in a submuscular position (below the muscle) tend to yield a more natural feel and appearance.
  • Silicone implants: While saline implants tend to be round and firm, silicone implants imitate the shape, look, and feel of natural breast tissue.
  • Balanced size and projection: Careful assessment of the anatomic realities of the natural breast tissue, breast placement, and chest width can identify a range of sizes and projections that would look most natural for the patient. Staying within this range is likely to produce the most natural-looking results.

How to Get Round and Shapely Results

  • Subglandular placement: Breast implants that are placed under the breast glands but over the pectoral muscles can produce a moderate level of lift, allowing the breasts to appear more prominent and full toward the top.
  • Round implants: Round implants, which have uniform fullness throughout, produce greater fullness in the upper portion of the breasts so that they appear rounder and have more cleavage.
  • Larger size: Larger implants provide greater fullness and more potential for cleavage.
  • Higher projection: High profile implants yield the greatest forward projection. They can produce the fullest, roundest look with the most prominent cleavage lines.
