Breast Augmentation Myths

Many women considering breast augmentation who visit my practice have concerns that their breasts will look too fake following surgery. While it’s true that some women still want a look that’s more dramatic, most of my patients want an end result that looks like them, only better.

Choosing the Right Implants

Making the right choices about your implants is a big part of ensuring a final result you feel happy with.* Implant size is important, of course, but also learn your options as far as profile and placement, and how these factors can affect your breasts.

A high profile breast implant gives more fullness at the top of your breast, also called the upper pole.* This gives breasts more prominence than they would have naturally on their own.* Medium or low profile implants generally will lead to a subtler result.*

Implants also come in a round shape, or a teardrop shape that more closely mimics the contours of a typical breast. If your goal is a very natural look, teardrop implants with a medium or low profile may be a good choice.*

The ideal breast augmentation results are those that bring out the best in a woman’s entire body, not just give them larger breasts.* Your implants should be complementary to your frame, not overwhelming. If your goal is a flattering enhancement, be sure to find a plastic surgeon who will respect those wishes, and customize your procedure accordingly.*
