One of the biggest concerns of women considering breast augmentation is not attaining their desired results. However, beautiful breast augmentation results should be completely achievable with the right surgeon and a customized approach. Here are three tips for achieving beautifully symmetrical breast implants.
1. Choose an Experienced Surgeon
This one cannot be said enough. When choosing the surgeon who will perform your breast augmentation, consider his or her qualifications, additional training in the form of fellowship programs or workshops, and experience. You should also look for a surgeon who specializes in breast enhancement specifically to help ensure that you have an optimal experience.
2. Adjust Implant Sizes for Existing Asymmetry
While most women have some degree of asymmetry in their breasts, size differences can be more pronounced in some than others. If you’re concerned with pre-existing asymmetry, you may want to opt for slightly different implant sizes to compensate. Consult with your surgeon about his or her recommendations for implant size as well as type (saline or silicone) for achieving symmetrical breasts after breast augmentation.
3. Stay Open to Additional Procedures
For some women, achieving symmetrical breasts is simply not possible with augmentation alone. Depending on your needs, you may consider including a breast lift in one or both of your breasts for an even end result. A breast lift can reshape the breast for a rounder look, raise the breast higher on your chest and center the nipple as needed.
Breast symmetry is often at the top of patients’ questions when undergoing augmentation. By keeping an open mind to possible methods of creating an even look, as well as working with a skilled breast augmentation surgeon, you can feel confident that your breasts will look just right after augmentation.
