From body shape to aesthetic preferences, each woman is unique. And that’s why no two breast augmentations are the same. Breast augmentation surgery is about more than choosing your desired implant size and waking up post-surgery with an enhanced chest. If you’re planning on breast augmentation surgery, read on to discover three ways to customize your procedure.
1. Select Implants That Complement Your Shape
When it comes to deciding which breast implants to get, it does little good to aim for a specific cup size. Breast implants are measured in cubic centimeters rather than how much they fill out your bra.
To choose the best breast implant size, shoot for the overall look you’d like rather than focusing on a specific size.
Share pictures of women who have a similar body type as you and who have the breast size and shape you aspire to with your plastic surgeon. Breast implants that complement and accentuate the figure can offer beautiful, natural-looking results.*
2. Opt for the Implant Placement Best Suited to You
Breast implants can be placed either above or below the muscle, and there are benefits to each placement. Submuscular implant placement is a popular option, as it offers a natural look and feel and results in less rippling.* Submuscular placement can be beneficial for women who don’t have a lot of breast tissue.*
Subglandular placement may be preferable in other circumstances, such as for women who regularly lift weights or women who have breasts that slightly sag, as subglandular placement can provide a subtle lift.*
3. Choose from Round or Shaped Breast Implants
Breast implants can be round or shaped. While some women prefer implants that are smooth and uniformly round, others opt for the anatomical, or teardrop shaped implants that are designed to mimic the breast’s natural slope.
