Patients choosing to get breast augmentation today have the ability to tailor their implants. More than just going bigger, the many options in implant size, shape and profile available today mean a woman can choose breast augmentation for a variety of reasons.
Changing Your Figure
While most women aren’t lucky enough to be born with the classically sexy hourglass figure, no amount of diet, exercise or wasp-waisted fashions will give you that iconic silhouette if you have small breasts relative to your hip width. This is just one example that illustrates how women may feel the breasts they were born with just don’t quite fit their body. Changing the appearance of the breasts can create more balanced proportions that affect the entire silhouette:*
- Women who have small breasts coupled with a pear-shaped lower body can aim for an hourglass figure by getting implants that balance out their hips and accentuate their tiny waistline.
- Short-waisted women often find that getting high-profile breast implants can help elongate the appearance of their torso.
- Taller, broad-shouldered women with small breasts may consider implants so their breast size better matches the rest of their frame.
Bigger isn’t always better. Choosing the proper proportions for your body type can help you achieve more natural-looking results.
How to Choose Your Breast Implants
Going in for your first breast augmentation consultation can often feel overwhelming when considering what size, shape and profile of implants to choose, especially if you have a very specific goal for your results. Be sure to choose an experienced breast augmentation surgeon who can simplify the process and help you choose the breast implants that are right for you.
