Like most things, trends in breast augmentation evolve. Today, many of our Baltimore breast augmentation patients are interested in the “natural” look—focusing on a smaller, more natural breast augmentation that includes subtle improvements that still look appropriately proportioned. So what’s behind the natural breast implant trend—and is it here to stay? We certainly hope so!
Natural Breast Augmentation Is In
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures around the globe. In recent years, many doctors—myself included—have seen a gradual decline in requests for large breasts. Instead, women from all walks of life say they want natural-looking results that are a bit smaller than what would have been popular several years ago. This applies to both first-time patients and women who have previously undergone a breast augmentation.
Why Smaller Breast Augmentations Are Trending
Smaller implants and low-key results have become more popular in part because manufacturers have developed better breast implant options and better techniques. Today’s breast implants are among the most advanced ever created and are available in a mind-boggling assortment of sizes and shapes.
The surgical steps used during breast augmentation have come a long way, too. Less invasive techniques allow surgeons to completely custom-tailor the surgery in a way that wasn’t available before. And because “natural” is a bit of a buzzword these days—showing up in everything from food labels to shampoo—it makes sense that the appeal would extend to cosmetic surgery, as well. Although “natural breast augmentation” itself isn’t natural, the idea of a natural-looking, subtle result that enhances your body’s existing curves, rather than competing with them, is an idea we can get behind.
Beyond Subtle Breast Augmentation
Implants aren’t the only option for breast enhancement. In a case where a patient requests a change that’s extremely subtle—perhaps more of a little “boost” than a big bump in size—we might recommend another breast surgery technique altogether.
For instance, many women who think that they need implants would actually see good results from a simple breast lift.
And don’t forget about the possibility of fat transfer, a procedure that uses your own unwanted fat to augment and enhance another part of your body—in this case, the breasts. Fat transfer is a great option for subtle breast augmentation results. Large-volume fat transfer isn’t very popular, but smaller amounts can be easily transferred with an exceptionally natural look and feel.
