For the last decade or so, the exaggerated hourglass figure has been en vogue: big boobs, big butts, wide hips, and tiny waists. As you would expect, plastic surgery trends have reflected this, with women seeking Brazilian butt lifts, breast augmentation and liposuction to achieve that coveted figure.
But like all trends, this one will eventually fade away. In fact, based on what patients are requesting from their plastic surgeons, it already is.
Current Breast Implant Trends
While there will always be a market for larger, rounder implants, most patients are moving away from this look and towards smaller, more natural-looking options. They are still looking for a boost, but one that balances their figure rather than exaggerating it.
Basically, bigger isn’t always better.
Does this mean that if you are considering breast augmentation, you should opt for smaller implants? Not necessarily. First, just because something is trendy doesn’t mean it is right for you. Surgery is permanent; get what you want out of it. Second, what is big on one figure will be small on another. You shouldn’t feel pushed towards fewer CCs just because most people are opting to go small.
Getting the Right Implants for Your Body
The best size for breast implants will always be what looks good on your figure. This means taking into account everything from the width of your shoulders and hips to the circumference of your rib cage. Also, keep in mind that breast implant sizing is more than just CCs; shape and projection play a significant role in how large implants are perceived to be, no matter their volume.
