Whether in search of Kate Upton’s enviable assets or hoping for a classic Jayne Mansfield look, many women want to improve their cleavage and look to breast implants to take care of business. What they don’t realize, however, is that larger breasts don’t always equal more or better cleavage.
Mother Nature Creates Cleavage
Cleavage is created by the distance between the breasts, which is determined by a woman’s natural anatomy. Chest width, the position of the breasts on the chest and the width of the breast base all contribute to a woman’s natural cleavage, or potential for cleavage. Breast augmentation can be an option women who want to increase their breast size, but the procedure can’t create cleavage if it simply isn’t there to begin with.
Steer Clear of Synmastia
For women with a wider chest and separation between their breasts, placing implants too close together in an attempt to create cleavage is a mistake. The results can look abnormal and may lead to synmastia, a malposition complication sometimes referred to as “uni-boob.” For better breast augmentation results, breast implants should be the same width or narrower than natural breasts.*
Invest in a Push-Up Bra
Even for women whose physical features don’t naturally include cleavage, breast augmentation can still offer beautiful results,* especially when performed by a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. If your anatomy is working against you, the combined effect of breast implants and a good push-up bra can be a winning combination.*
